Don’t Date a DILF by DJ Jamison Release Blitz

Release Blitz. Don’t Date a DILF by DJ Jamison. May 25 – 29.

I have one rule to live by: Don't Date a DILF.

I've seen the consequences of blurring the boundaries between teaching life and dating life, and I'm not about to take that kind of risk.

But I didn't count on Hunter Rhodes walking into my school. Never expected that the broad-shouldered, stubble-jawed, absolute glory of a man would be such a sweet and caring father. Or that as a seemingly straight man, he might decide he wants me.

If my Nana has her way... I'll be in love with someone by the end of the school year, but there's only one man who tempts me.

With her matchmaking becoming overwhelming and half the single women in Granville setting their sights on Hunter, we're both feeling the pressure. Faking a relationship could get everyone off our backs.

It seems like fun and games for Hunter, but separating pretend feelings from real won't be so simple for me. And then there's that rule...

Can I date a DILF without disaster—or will all my fears come true?

Don't Date a DILF is book 1 of Rules We Break, a spin-off series from Games We Play, set in the small, quirky town of Granville, where nosy residents meddle in one another's lives, great friendships are made, and silly innuendos are a way of life.

Clark’s voice filtered in from the hallway.

“Nana, for the last time, I was trying… Yeah, well, maybe I should run all your proposed dates through my friends first if you think Percy Helix was a good choice!”

I smirked at his sass, then had to muffle a laugh when he followed it up with, “No, I’m not being sassy. I’m sorry, Nana.”

Fuck, that was adorable.

Clark was a grown man who had his shit together far more than I ever would, and yet here he was, getting scolded by his grandmother. There was something so sweet and wholesome about that.

He glanced toward the classroom and caught sight of me through the doorway. He held up one finger, in the universal sign to wait a minute.

“We can talk more later, Nana. I have a parent here for a meeting, okay? But I really don’t think another setup is a good idea… Because I don’t. Because it’s uncomfortable!” He groaned theatrically. “Yes, okay, we’ll talk later.”

He lowered the phone and turned toward me.

I winced. “Sorry. I didn’t mean to eavesdrop.”

He shrugged. “Well, you were at the pub, so… not like you didn’t know already.”

“Your nana feels pretty strongly about setting you up with a date, huh?”


“My mother hassles me every time we talk too,” I said.

“Must be something in the water,” Clark said with a pout.

Still adorable.

“Yeah, I actually lost my cool at work. Yelled at Tucker about how everyone in this town wants me to date. You know what we should do?”


“Go on a date together.” I laughed. “That would shut everyone up.”

Clark’s eyes widened. “I think it would do the opposite.”

“You know what I mean though. Can’t set up a couple of guys who are already dating.” I wiggled my eyebrows. “Genius, right?”




Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Clark Fletcher moved back to his hometown and was teaching in the local high school. He learned at his last job, after his friend was involved in a scandal, not to date the parent of a student. But does the parent of an after-school program student count? Clark has always had a crush on Hunter Rhodes. When Hunter moves back, after a very rough divorce, with his son, Toby. Hunter is trying to do everything possible to make it an easy transition for Toby, but it isn't easy. Toby is having trouble in school and needs some extra help, so when the school recommends Clark's after-school program Hunter is hopeful. Hunter is the object of everyone's attention since he's been back. He's not interested in dating anyone. And with Clark's grandmother trying to set him up with any single man in town, Hunter jokes they should "fake" date to stop all the set-ups. What starts as fake quickly turns into more, which confuses both Hunter (who thought he was straight) and Clark. Can Clark stop himself from falling for the DILF? Will Hunter let his walls down and fall for the first man he finds attractive?

I was so invested in these characters and their meddling neighbors. It was a fun, emotional read. Hunter was so determined to make the divorce transition easy for Toby that he was willing to be miserable, but finding Clark was everything they both needed. It seemed almost seamless to have Clark in their lives.

I can't wait to see what's next for this sweet little town.

I have to be honest, the first half of the book was a struggle for me. It was slow and had a lot of inner monologue. Once things finally started moving and there was actual consistent dialogue, I was finally able to connect with Carter and Hunter and enjoy their story. This was a low-angst, semi-slow-burn, love story. Once they finally dove in though, it was steamy as all get out. I loved how Toby was also a big part of the story. I loved how open to things Hunter was, he was a genuine good guy who loved the person, not the gender. Carter was sweet but always doubting things. These two were smoking hot once things were a go and I was there for it! LOL. I will read the next book, the teaser for it has me intrigued.

After all the rules I’d imposed on myself, I’d walked right into a loophole, and I couldn’t bring myself to care. I was going to date a DILF.
