Forbidden age-gap with a lot of context and some extra trials of PTSD, finding new purpose after a life changing event, and becoming your own person from overbearing parents. A lot going on, and a lot of heat.

On the face of it - this book has everything that is good about a taboo romance. Dad’s best friend, age gap, forbidden romance - it is in there. This is the third book in the series but can be read as a standalone. However I wish I had read the other books first as I feel that this will have helped me settle into the setting quicker.

The romance and chemistry in this book is its standout point, but the lead up to the relationship felt rushed and it is not realistic to be in love after one night of sex. The dialouge for me also caused me to struggle reading sections as it is very choppy and doesn’t flow in a particularly easy fashion.

Overall I thought the book was ok. I wouldn’t rush to read the others but I also wouldn’t completely disregard them either.

Thank you NetGalley for the ARC copy of this book.

Ok, this book has everything I like: age gap, forbidden love, chosen family and friendship.
Freya and Aston are absolutely hot. It was an easy read, even though sometimes it felt just too long. Things kept happening ad that tired me a bit, but I was definitely engaged. The steamy moments are many and well written and the chemistry between them is of the chart.
This is my first story from this author but it would not be the last!

Sir, Yes Sir by L. L. Ash is a dad's best friend, age gap romance. It is a forbidden romance type book and one you know will be full of steam and spice before even turning the page. I love that both characters are very strong willed and independent. I enjoyed the plot of watching the characters connect and fall in love. There were parts that were sad and hard to read because you really feel heartbroken for the MMC, Ashton. He has PTSD and deals with a lot issues. Freya, the FMC, seems to help bring peace to him. As a couple they have a lot of things to overcome if they want to make the relationship work.

Overall I enjoyed the story and look forward to reading more books from this author.

Sir, Yes Sir is a spicy Dad’s best friend romance by LL Ash. This is the third book in a series but can definitely be read as a standalone. This is my first book by this author.

Ashton Kane is honourably (medically) discharged from the marines after a mission gone wrong permanently injured him and kills several of his crew. After a long recovery at a military hospital he heads to his longtime friend Tommy’s house to finish his recovery and work at his dealership.

Freya is Tommy’s 21 year old daughter and still lives at home. When Ashton arrives he notices Freya is no longer the kid he remembers. Freya is gorgeous and somehow seems to know exactly what to do to calm him during his PTSD episodes. But what happens when the girl who is off limits is the love of your life?

So, I loved the premise of this story but didn’t love the writing or the characters. I really thought the lead up to Ashton and Freya getting together and building a relationship should have been a bigger part of the book. I couldn’t quite grasp that after one night of mind blowing sex, Freya was telling her dad she loved him. This book did have lots of spice and I liked that both Ashton and Freya were strong characters. This was a three star read for me.

Unfortunately, this was a DNF for me. The dialogue felt very choppy, and the characters all seemed very immature, making it very difficult read.

I don’t feel right rating this book since I DNF it. I will not leave a review on goodreads or Amazon.

I’m active duty and I like to read military romances because most military men aren’t like this, so I like to pretend (lol). However, there were inconsistencies in this book that irritated me, like calling a MARSOC Marine a Soldier. Marines are not soldiers and most take offense to being called one. There were also some other cringy things in the book that aided in my inability to not finish it.

There is nothing wrong with the book. I think I might just be overly critical given my job and I don’t think it’s fair to give a negative rating when I’m sure the book is excellent for someone not in my position. The storyline is great and I think the character growth after the 2 year mark was the perfect progression of the story.

This book was so addictive! I loved the age gap dad's best friend scenario! Freya was a sweet and beautiful FMC and Ashton is a strong, sexy, mouthy, outspoken guy! The way their love forms and to how this book even ends is all chefs kiss!! It had me taken away since the beginning to the end! I would recommend this book to many!

Taboo romances are one of my favorites! Loved this one so much! It was sooo good! I loved the couple in it.

I picked this one up for the forbidden vibes and it didn't let me down. Ash and Freya are two unlikely people that find peace in each other. Ash is struggling after his discharge and Freya is one of the few to treat him normal without kid gloves. Freya is trying to establish her independence from her clingy family. Their relationship forces them to deal with their situations. Freya is feisty and still has a softness to her. I can see why Ash gravitates towards her. I definitely felt their chemistry and longing rather vividly and midway my stomach was in knots for these two. There's spice and banter to round out the plot creating an enjoyable story

ARC Review/Note: Thank you NetGalley and Publisher for this arc. These are my own words.

So I really tried to get through this since it’s an ARC copy and I wanted to be able to provide a fell review and feedback but unfortunately this was just not for me. I decided to DNF @ 51%. It just read way too much like a YA Novel when I know good and well it’s NA. They were both so immature it was annoying. Then the dad & mom, don’t even get me started. I just really didn’t like any of the characters.
Since this was an ARC copy I won’t leave a rating.

I got this ARC book from NetGalley in return for a fair review.

Spicy: 🌶🌶🌶🌶

This age-gap dad's best friend romance was an addictive heart warming and spicy book about the love of a hardened war vet, Ash, and an independent no-shit taking woman, Freya, who happens to be the daughter of Ash's best friend Tom.

After being injured, Ash goes to Tom's to recouperate from his injuries. It's here that Ash see's Freya, no longer a little girl, but now a woman, and one he's more then just attracted to. Freya becomes a friend, a companion, and a source of strength for Ash.

Freya has had a crush on Ash for as long as she could remember, and now he's in her house being cared for by her parents. Now that she's older, she has no intention of backing down and hiding her feelings from Ash.

After the many challenges Freya and Ash face, the finally get their HEA. The book was well written and has a good flow. Each character was well developed and enjoyable to read about.

Triggers: PTSD, war flashbacks, death of a parent, parental abuse.

I love a good age gab but haven't read many books that included a military man, but boy did this book show me something different. Ash is starts as a 30 something brooding injured marine while Freya is the early 20s daughter of his best friend. I loved how Freya was empowered to take what she wanted even though Ash was holding back his feelings.

This book was a great story that kept me on my toes the whole time. While the book was plenty spicy there was a great plot with magnificent story telling. I couldn't get enough of this duo. We should all be so lucky to have and Ashton Kane in our lives.

This is how you the dads best friend trope👏🏽

Ashton, a marine, finds himself injured in the field and is offered to stay with his friend, Tom. Freya had always seem to have an infatuation with Ashton. And she just so happens to now live under the same roof as him. Feelings start developing between the two and they can’t seem to ignore it.

This book had me hooked! I wish I could rate this 100 stars. ⭐️

This book was so captivating.

There was just something so intriguing and almost fun about it. Even with some of the more intense moments, which should not be discounted, I was just so engaged with Ash & Freya. They were just so alive on the page. It immediately had me on their side and I longed for them to be able to share their love.

Ashton is a Marine who was recently injured in combat and lost many of his men. He doesn't have anyone in his life besides friends and when he needs to recoup and heal, his friend Tom and his family take him in. He isn't planning to be there for long, but it's long enough for him to notice Freya.

Freya is Tom's daughter and also currently lives with her parents. She is 20-21 I believe. Freya has always had a crush on Ash, but now he's just... there. And he's charming and funny and a little bit sad. It's impossible for her to stay away from him but is she willing to deal with the fall out?

There are many challenges between these two and an HEA but I just couldn't stop reading until they made it there. Their chemistry was amazing but there was more than that. This connection isn't only about lust. They really spend time getting to know one another and making sure their relationship is worth the risks.

This book does have a trope that I don't usually care for, but I understand why the author chose to do it and I think it made them both stronger in the end. It really made me believe these two could go the distance.

Also, just a reminder, this is a part of a series but each book stands on its own. No cross-over characters. Each book is just a different forbidden relationship. So if you like some naughty Age-Gaps, this series is for you.

4.5 stars
4 on the spice scale

CW: PTSD, War flashbacks, abusive parent (past), death of a parent

While this was a spicy fun time, I needed more character development! I just couldn’t connect with the characters the way I wanted to. But if you’re looking for something high heat, I definitely recommend!

This was an okay read. I didn’t feel strongly about it one way or the other. I feel like the plot could have been developed more and there could have been more chemistry between the characters.
