ARC Review: SILVER FOX by Misha Elliott

February 01, 2018

Jill Caldwell and Richard Sisk’s lives were both irrevocably changed at the age of 17.
A chance meeting and long-term friendship lead them into a love story that should never be.

Their love affair is an erotic passionate meld of lust and understanding—It’s also taboo.
But age is irrelevant when love enters the heart.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The title is Silver Fox. Who doesn’t want to read that? Then this line from the blurb, Their love affair is an erotic passionate meld of lust and understanding - It’s also taboo, ... how can you resist? 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.
