Silver Fox Review

I know I couldn’t so I jumped in, eyes closed, and was willing to swim with all the no-nos.But that’s not what this was.Misleading doesn’t even cover it. There was nothing taboo about this story. Nothing. I’m not sure about you, but in 2018, I don’t think anyone is calling for pitchforks if there’s a 13 year age difference with a couple. It’s pretty routine nowadays. She’s in her late 20s, he’s just turned 40. I’m not sure where the taboo was. I got to the end of the book and I was still trying to find it.Richard Sisk was extremely easy to like. He was an honorable man who had married his high school sweetheart after knocking her up. After many years together, they grew apart and inevitably divorced. He’s starting over and is a little lost on how to go about doing that. He was adorable in his awkwardness. After losing her parents, Jill took on the mom role for her little brother. He’s all grown up and has been encouraging her to let him go and have her own life. And that’s how these two started. Kinda.Overall, I did enjoy this story. Love it? Not so much. I was disappointed simply because I led myself to expect something else. I don’t believe that was anyone’s fault but my own and the blurb. So if I were to give you any advice before going into this book, and I do recommend you read it, I would say take the taboo thoughts off the table and just enjoy the sweet romance that develops between Jill and Richard. Because in the end, it was the most important part. Release: Feb. 4, 2018 | Genre: Contemporary Romance | POV: Dual - 1st person | Heat: 3 out of 5 | Standalone | Publisher: Dream Reads LLC

Richard is a 40 years old man, who is handling a divorce (his ex, Sheila, is such a manipulative bitch!), hence he is undecided all the time – thing I didn’t like at all. But he looks good, that’s a plus. Thank God for the tattoos and the grey hair. Jillian is 26, with 8 years of experience in maternity. If you read the book, you’ll see what this is all about. I liked her. At least she had guts. They meet at a bar, but it turns out that they knew each other from way back. Obviously, they fall in love, but their story is weird. They didn’t click... Not the way soulmates would. I felt like a lot of detailes were missing. Each chapter begun with a quote and I loved this idea! And I loved the fact that the story was written from the perspective of both of the characters. It's so nice to know what each person thinks. I adored that short story about the birds! It was so inspirational. And I almost laughed when the title started to make sense. It was so obvious and I didn't catch it. Somehow I expected something different. Anyway... My opinion on this book is both good and bad. I loved the connection Jill had with Evan, but I hated the love story between Jill and Richard. Those parts of the book which had Sheila in them were good. Those were the parts that caught my attention the most. The ending was awful though... It was a cliche and the big question?! Two lines? Even a kid could do better. My rating: 2.5 stars. P.S. The cover is perfect! I also found some quotes worth mentioning: "If I were a superhero this man whould be my kryptonite.""The intensity of the heat I held back for what seems like ages is no longer satisfied to remain silent." "Memories are like ghosts, lingering in rooms with paint-chipped walls and stained carpets appearing when you least expect them." "You can't save up your feelings for someone and cash them in when everything is perfectly aligned."

    "All I want is for him to be here in the flesh, doing all the dirty things he promised in my dreams." Silver Fox is the first book I've read by Misha Elliott. Yes, I admit the title and cover had me very intrigued. Being in the 'silver' stage myself I am totally on board with reading about a #SilverFox and having that nice visual in my head as I do.Richard is successful in business, but not in love. Accepting that pure determination is not enough to make a relationship work, he's ready to move "All I want is for him to be here in the flesh, doing all the dirty things he promised in my dreams." Silver Fox is the first book I've read by Misha Elliott. Yes, I admit the title and cover had me very intrigued. Being in the 'silver' stage myself I am totally on board with reading about a #SilverFox and having that nice visual in my head as I do.Richard is successful in business, but not in love. Accepting that pure determination is not enough to make a relationship work, he's ready to move forward and cut his losses. He's not looking for another relationship, he's just looking. When he sees Jillian, I battle to keep my feelings of lust and longing under control." He doesn't know how old she is, but he can see that she's young and beautiful. Too young...Jillian has had to grow up faster than most. At a very early age, she had to sacrifice her own needs to care for her younger brother. She had to skip college and experiencing the typical teenage lifestyle in order to be a good role model. She never regretted that decision for a second. But as her brother prepares to go off to college she's on the verge of empty-nest-syndrome at the tender age of 26. When she ends up at a club alone after being set-up by her brother, she sees him. From the moment I first laid my eyes on Richard Sisk I felt an attraction to him. She gave herself an internal pep-talk and walked right over, rescuing him from an unwanted admirer.Once the connection was made, neither could stop thinking about the other. While Jillian knew exactly what she wanted, she was reluctant to make the first move. It was clear to her that Richard was fighting their chemistry. So, she did the next best thing, she offered him friendship. Of course, as I was privy to their internal dialogue, I knew exactly how each felt about each other. It was very hard for me to be patient and wait for them to catch up. I wanted to yank them out of the #FriendZone and throw them into the #LoveZone immediately.I enjoyed this sweet love story, especially the silver fox aspect. I also enjoyed the chapter headings with thought-provoking quotes. And I kid you not, I took Jillian's ramblings to heart and actually paused my reading to Google coffee bean storage, and then took my beans out of the fridge. I also had to go online to Amazon and purchase an airtight dark container to keep on my countertop before going back to Richard & Jillian. Thanks, Misha Elliott for teaching this old dog a new trick! Another thing I really enjoyed in this story is a character spotlight that had me smiling. I recognized him and had a good giggle-snort when Richard became jealous and #Furious.

It was no doubt that after Jill meets Richard much earlier from her babysitting his daughter would they meet again under different circumstances now that she was 26 and he was 40.The story takes off so very well with the additions of a few other supporting characters that will add light to the read that will only keep you turning the pages to see what is going on next. After Jill and Richard meet for the second time will there be something that will keep each other interested? "From the moment I first laid my eyes on Richard Sisk I felt an attraction to him." What was up with their 'FriendZone?'' Was this what Richard wanted and just why was that? Well, to get all of the answers and so much more you will have to pick up "Silver Fox" to see how well this author will bring it all out so well to the reader. I don't want to leave out how well I enjoyed how this author brings in on top of each of her chapter headings that will give the reader some 'thought provoking quotes' that one will ponder long after the read. In the end "Silver Fox" was definitely a beautiful read that I would recommend as a good read.

He’s signed the papers and is waiting for the judge to sign off to finalize. His ex-wife was a real piece of work! They tried to make the marriage work for the sake of their now college age daughter, but there was nothing to salvage. He goes out to a club for a drink after the disastrous divorce paper signing. He is being hit on by a much older woman and Jill comes to his rescue. She knows who he is, but he can’t remember where he knows her from.Jill is 26 and works for an art gallery and loves her job. She has few friends because she has spent the last eight years raising her younger brother when their mom died. Their father had passed away earlier. Jill was days away from turning 18 when she became, mom, dad and sister to her brother. She gave up a lot so her brother would have the love, attention and things that he needed and she doesn’t regret a bit of it. It is tough for her to let go. Her brother is ready to head for college and he gives her the reality talk that she needs to start living her life and let him go. Jill had made plans to go to a club with a friend that ended up not going last minute so her brother said he would go with her only to just drop her off and be her DD. She was taken aback but she was there and went in. Then she sees the man she crushed on when she was 17. He was looking uncomfortable being hit on by an older woman, so she came to his rescue. She thought he was a silver fox and even more handsome then she remembers. They danced and had a great evening that ended too soon. Thus, began the friendship and slow burn romance of Richard and Jill.What began as a friendship, lust simmered beneath the surface and you could feel the tension building. Richard wanted Jill, but he felt like such a failure in his relationship and he felt that the 14-year age gap was too much. Jill felt the age gap didn’t matter. She wanted to get to know him and the more she learned the more she wanted him. The chemistry between these two is HOT! There are some misunderstandings and definite heartbreaking moments that take months to repair, but oh the journey! The secondary characters are a great supporting cast. If you like friends to lovers, older man/younger woman romance, then give this slow burner a read!ARC kindly provided by Next Step PR for an honest review.

I actually really liked Jillian, she was probably the only saving grace in this entire book. She raises her younger brother from an early age and has to skip college just to care for him. She isn’t able to do the typical teenage and young adult things because she is trying to be a good role model for her brother. Another thing off putting about this book was the flow of the story. For example in a scene where they were outside all of a sudden they were inside cuddling in the bed a few sentences down. I only purchased this book based on the cover and that was my lesson learned, maybe I should read the blurb before to make sure I’m actually interested in the book. This was my first Misha Elliot book and I would take a chance on her again. ** I voluntarily read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review **

Normally with books like these (contemporary romance), I'm "eye rolling" the live long novel, but this author was so smart in her delivery. She knew her audience and kept us engaged with pop culture, music, and literally references. There didn't need to be any mobsters or cheesy near death experiences, because these characters are deep, dynamic, and easily remind us of someone we know, or could know in the real world. The main characters are both lovely and likeable; I was eager to get to the next chapter to see what was happening with these two yes, but more so even for the quote that was presentented at the start of the chapter. Adorable supporting characters who could definitely carry novels of their own. Two thumbs up!

I think I would have been creeped out if he was 40 and she was like 18 or something, that shit is just all kinds of wrong, but 40 to her 26, really should not be an issue. Should I feel offended that he keeps referring to himself as an old man at the age of 40? I'm 38 and don't feel old at all, I feel perfectly happy with my age. The fact that he has a daughter in college doesn't even factor in since he had her when he was still a teenager.I actually thought this was a very sweet story, despite everyone's hangup with the supposedly HUGE age difference. I liked that Richard and Jill didn't jump into anything quickly, they started off as just acquaintances, then moved on to friends and finally to lovers, though the marriage proposal was a bit fast..especially since for half of their relationship he was still married as his divorce was not finalized yet.The reason for my two star rating was the horrible grammatical and punctuation errors. One or two errors is fine but when its so consistent, it takes away from the story because then I get distracted trying to make sense of what was trying to be said, which sucks. Also, many parts of the story just didn't flow, its like one paragraph Richard and Jill are having wild public sex on a rooftop and like two lines down, they're snuggling on her bed? Again, this lack of flow is due to poor punctuation errors.Overall, for my first read by this author I wasn't terribly unhappy as the story was nice and romantic but it just needed to flow better. It read as a bit choppy, lots of bits and pieces just didn't make sense.

At seventeen he met a woman, who would make him give up his dreams for the future. Doing the right thing he marries his pregnant long time hookup. Over the years, things change, and he receives a divorce as his birthday present. Jill Caldwell has spent the last eight years caring for her younger brother. She has been being both is older sister and parents. Now that he is settled well into college, she finally has the gift of freedom.. Jill knows that together she and Richard can build a life of everything they ever wanted; that is if he can get over being her sliver fox. I really enjoyed this story. Being older myself, I really love to see older characters in books and Richard fits that part perfectly. He is such a good man. He married his high school girlfriend after she got pregnant and they built a life together. A life that is over and ends in divorce when he and his wife grow apart. He was so determined to make this relationship work, but now it is time to move on but his sure isn't looking to hop right back into another serious life consuming relationship. When he meets Jillian he wants her right away but he can tell that there is a pretty big age difference between them. Richard is in his forties and Jillian in her twenties. Though Jillian had to grow up quickly when she lost her parents at the age of seventeen and began raising her younger brother. She didn't get to go to college and she sure didn't get to experience the things that most teenagers do. However, she would do it all over again if she had to. She has not one regret and is so proud of her brother who has now gone off to college and for the first time in years Jillian is on her own. Free to do anything in the world that she wants to do. This leads to a night at a club and her rescuing Richard from unwanted attention of another female. While Jillian knows that she wants Richard she can so tell that he is fighting his attraction to her and this leads to the rest of the story that your not getting from me. You have to pick up the book and read it. I really enjoyed this story. The push and the pull. Fighting what you feel is a huge age difference but knowing that it is the one thing in the world that can make you the happiest. Misha Elliott has written a sweet love story that will leave you closing the book with a big old smile on your face.

She has had a tough life because of the responsibility she had and came out of it wonderfully and so did her brother. richard was in a similar situation as Jill. He was being freed. Freed from a unloving shrew if you ask me. He just didn’t handle it all with grace. He did learn from his mistakes though and work to correct them. Their story was sweet and sexy. We get the man who is foxy but older attracted to the young vibrant woman. He tries to be honorable but attraction and how she comforts him and soothes his soul wins out. they have a relationship that is respectful, honest and loving. ONly Richard does do something stupid from fear and has to do something big to win back his love who has him heart and soul. We see both Richard and Jill’s points of view. And here I enjoyed Jill’s more. I loved seeing how mature and honest she was. Her feelings were open and real. Richard’s was good but his journey was one that didn’t resonate as much as Jill’s did. Don’t get me wrong his to finding himself and love is good but Jill’s is more captivating. The romance was a mixture of sweet and sexy. The story was nicely paced and had you engulfed in their world to the end. A enjoyable sweet read that holds you until the end as you embark on the journey of Richard and Jill-how they find themselves and love with one another.

He's off to college now, so it's time for Jill to let her freak flag fly, which she did, for about a second and then fell in love with Richard.I don't know how to feel about this book. It was off putting how Richard was constantly described as "old" and the guy just turned forty. I'm forty-five and didn't consider myself that old, until I finished reading Jill and Richard's story and was informed I was. I liked Richard's character, however he was hot and cold with Jill and really should have played the field a little more after leaving his wife. I didn't like Jill at all. Something about her rubbed me the wrong way.This was my first Misha Elliott book, so I'm not familiar with her writing style, but did notice she isn't a fan of contractions. Very stiff writing that slows my process down. I am a fan of the write like you talk type of author, for a smoother read. Silver Fox wasn't in my wheelhouse, but may be in yours.

SO yeah, the cover made me say YES PLEASE when I was offered a copy of this book. Then of course who doesn’t like to read the occasional old man/younger woman story??? But mainly the cover is what drew me in. #CoverWhoreI liked the story of the rich older man finding love with a younger woman after a disastrous first marriage. Yes, it may seem taboo he is 40 and she is 26 but people they are adults. I liked the story a lot, but the ending needed a bit more IMO. It seemed like all of a sudden, the author was just DONE and wrapped it up super-fast.So Richard is a man who is not looking for love. He is divorcing his wife/high school girlfriend after years of not making this marriage work. Jillian has lost her parents at a very young age and so she took on the job of raising her brother. SO Jillian maybe 26 but feels 40 as well. She has done her best with her brother and now is looking for a life of her own.When Jill saves Richard from a chick at a bar they both are interested in the other and soon the relationship begins. They build a friendship and then finally start dating which in turns to love. The story is sweet, and I enjoyed but I wish there had been a better flow at the end. This was my first book by this author, but I would read another again for sure.

    There are so many things to love about this book. First off, the amazing cover that gives the reader a face for Richard. Second, the great chemistry between the couple, even though an age difference of more than a decade should be a barrier. Then there is the reluctance of a man coming out of a long-term relationship because he feels like a failure. Richard has always been a man who has done the right thing, even if it meant giving up his dreams. Now, starting over after being divorced by the vi There are so many things to love about this book.

Richard has always been a man who has done the right thing, even if it meant giving up his dreams. Now, starting over after being divorced by the viper Sheila, his ex-wife, (she is definitely a character you love to hate) he strives to find himself and is looking for a release, not necessarily a relationship.Jillian has spent the last eight years raising her younger brother after their mother died. Like Richard, she gave up a lot to do the right thing by her brother. When her brother forces her out on the town, she runs into someone from her past, a man she has measured all other men by in her life. The couple's paths have crossed before, yet this time is completely different. The banter between characters is smartly written and sexy. The storyline leads to a satisfying ending but not without pitfalls along the way. The ex rears her ugly head, making the reader plot creative ways to bring on her demise. (did I mention I hate her?-No? I really do) The pull between Richard and Jillian jumps off the page and the sex scenes are HOT! Ms. Elliott writes smart, well-defined characters and storylines that pull the reader into the story and leaves them wanting more. I look forward to reading more by this author in the future.

    It was a lovely story of two persons who felt lost as a consequence of failure and lost, afraid of trust and how a bit of happiness for themselves will taste.We got Jillian a young woman in the outside, mature after all the tragedies in her life, with a heart to keep in an arm distance in order to not let it be damaged by hurt. Then we got Richard an older man (only in age, his description makes him more edible) who didn't want to believe in love again for the errors of his past.Their chemistry It was a lovely story of two persons who felt lost as a consequence of failure and lost, afraid of trust and how a bit of happiness for themselves will taste.We got Jillian a young woman in the outside, mature after all the tragedies in her life, with a heart to keep in an arm distance in order to not let it be damaged by hurt. Then we got Richard an older man (only in age, his description makes him more edible) who didn't want to believe in love again for the errors of his past.Their chemistry was so evident in each of their encounters that I was eager to know the next step of their road to happy ending but the lack of trust from Richard's side put them apart. In my opinion it was the most common or lame scenario written in a book to put two lovers apart, I mean they could have had a more heartbroken scenario.Even when it has some time lapses undescribed, some spaces of actions that are not explained, I really liked the book, specially the quotes in the begining of every chapter. I also loved that the author did not focus their problems on the age gap and what society will say.For a first time book from this author I truly enjoyed the story and I felt it like my own.(view spoiler)[ This is a tiny spoiler but I loved his proposal because it felt real: "Love isn't easy. It's a conscious choice we make each day. What I'm saying is for the rest of my life I plan on waking up to choose you" (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)] (hide spoiler)]

    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.I was intrigued by the summary of the book as I am in a similar situation, my significant other is 14 years older than me. Neither of us have an issue with the age difference but I can understand Richard's apprehension. For the most part, I enjoyed reading this book.

The brother is now old enough to take care of himself and Jill finds herself without anyone to care for. I felt like the book took a little too long to get these two together. Jill and Richard are running buddies and have plenty of conversation but no action. Normally I like a little delay in the story while the romance builds but I was running out of patience. I didn't care for a few things in the book that didn't make sense. If Jillian was his babysitter once upon a time, how could she not know that he was once married? Richard definitely shouldn't have kept it a secret but it shouldn't have been so upsetting in my opinion. I also felt like the brother seemed unrealistically wise beyond his years. A typical 18-year-old isn't that wise about relationships. I know this is fiction but I like a somewhat realistic feel and this ruined it for me. Overall, I didn't feel like it was a waste of my time to read it but I expected more based on the summary of the book.

Richard is newly single and isn’t looking for anything serious. They met at a concert at a local bar. Then they continue to bump into each other all the time. It seems that fate has plans for them. I loved the push and pull between Richard and Jillian. They become quick friends but Richard has an enteral battle that prevents them from becoming more. Jillian is very forward and makes sure he knows what she wants. It seemed like anytime things started to progress they would take two steps back. This book had all the feels and plenty of angst that kept me turning pages. I loved Jillian, she was a great female lead. Most of the time I loved Richard. There were a few occasions when I wanted to slap some sense into him but most of the time he was a dream. I cannot wait to read more from Ms. Elliott.

There isn’t any real action with this story. The inner dialogue takes up a lot of the book. I would have liked the author to use the May-Dec. aspect of the story a bit more. There weren’t any scenes with Richard and Jillian around Richard’s friends or any scenes with Richard’s daughter meeting Jillian.>The romance was very sweet, showing the vulnerability of Richard. He felt like he failed in his marriage. This book is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving this book 4 stars. I loved how Jillian’s brother, Evan became a strong secondary character as he guided and protected Jillian.

    This was the first book I read by this author and it didn't disappoint. We meet Jillian who sacrificed a lot of her early twenties to take care of her brother after a tragedy. Nothing was more important than her brother. Now that he is all grown up, she can start living her own life. Richard is just getting out of a twenty year marriage and wants to break free. He never expected to meet someone like Jillian. What was supposed to be a one night thing has turned in to something different.

Can they overcome that?I liked that the romance in this book grew gradually. Even though there was an attraction, they didn't act on it for quite awhile. I love both of these characters, but would've loved seeing more of her brother and friends. The reason I didn't give this book five stars is because the ending felt a bit rushed to me. It's like I missed part of the story. All in all, a really good romance book. I will definitely be keeping an eye on this author.Full review to come on thebookdutchesses.wordpress.com

    I'll admit that I took one look at the title for this one and was ready to read it. Silver fox. May/December romance. What's not to love? Richard is one of the most lovable characters that I've come across in some time. He's a bit broken by circumstances and he's got some anger over the way things have played out in his marriage, but he also has a heart of gold and wants to do the right thing, whatever that may be. Combine that with the salt and pepper hair and beard, and the tatted and toned bo I'll admit that I took one look at the title for this one and was ready to read it. Silver fox. May/December romance.

Combine that with the salt and pepper hair and beard, and the tatted and toned body and he's positively swoon-worthy. Enter Jill who was forced to grow up way too soon and is finally trying to live a little for herself. The romance is a bit of a slow build with Richard's reservations about the age difference and Jill's hesitance to put herself out there, but these two are just so sweet together that you can't help but root for them. The conclusion was a little rushed, but considering this pair's journey, I was ready to see them get their HEA and on the whole, I was happy with it.

    I like the characters and rooted for their relationship. It is a good story with some fun parts. He's dealing with a divorce after a long marriage. She dealing with her brother whom she raised leaving for college and expecting her to start living her life. I didn't find the conflict strong enough. It wasn't really a Dec/May romance with 13 years separating them. She was in her late twenties so able to deal with a guy a little older. He is a nice guy and hot--why not.Along with the limited confli I like the characters and rooted for their relationship. It is a good story with some fun parts.

I think tightening this and advertising it in a light comedy vein would improve expectations and the read.

    Richard and Jill's story was pretty sweet..not forbidden by any means, instead a romantic journey between a silver fox and a younger woman.I loved Jill right from the start, from her choices to her feelings, that make her more mature than she should be at her age.I liked Richard, after all dealing with an ex wife like his took a lot of patience lol. He is a good man an he is finally free to look for what he was missing. He is so awkward at times he makes him relatable, to me anyway.A sweet read, Richard and Jill's story was pretty sweet..not forbidden by any means, instead a romantic journey between a silver fox and a younger woman.I loved Jill right from the start, from her choices to her feelings, that make her more mature than she should be at her age.I liked Richard, after all dealing with an ex wife like his took a lot of patience lol.

Richard was in the middle of a divorce and met Jillian at a bar, but did not remember her at that time. They slowly got to know each other (slowly because Richard thought he was too old for her).

    Richard is newly single at forty and plans to keep it that way. Jillian is finally free at 26 after raising her brother and sending him off to college. The attraction between these two is definitely there however Richard feels he is to old for her. Jillian plans to show him differently. This is a sweet romance with great characters. I did notice a few editing issues, overall the story is entertaining and enjoyable. A good read.
