Blog Tour + Official Review! IT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME by Kylie Scott


“Addictive like all Kylie Scott books, you’ll swoon, laugh, ache, put your life on hold, and compulsively read until the wee hours of the night—only to reread the whole thing the next morning. Perfection!” – Katy Evans, New York Times bestselling author

Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at eighteen hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was.

Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation—confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete was left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town.

Seven years later, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back those old feelings.

Sometimes first loves are the truest.


I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

Since reading Trust by Kylie Scott and going on to read Chaser from her Dive bar series, I have grown to love her writing and adore her characters. I couldn’t wait to jump straight into It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time and find out all about this May/December romance that is extremely hot and slightly forbidden. Who doesn’t love an interesting story line and some naughty action? It wasn’t long and I was completely drawn into Adele and Pete’s tumultuous love affair that started out as an unusual friendship that soon became unresolved conflict that turned into uncontrollable heat and undeniable soul touching love.

Adele Reid has had feelings for Pete since she was just a sixteen year old impressionable teenager and they have yet to go away even after an extremely embarrassing situation which caused her to exile herself from her family and hometown for seven years. I loved getting to know this witty and quirky woman and see how she changed from the inquisitive teenager that she was to the strong woman that she has become. Kylie took us on a roller coaster ride of emotions and made sure that we experienced every moment of Adele’s thoughts and feelings deep inside our soul.

Even though I am not a person who loves relationships with a big age difference, I inevitably found myself drawn into the angst and heated attraction that seem to suffocate everyone in the room when Adele and Pete are around one another. I soon found myself deeply in love and lust for this man who first became Adele’s friend and rock in her somewhat chaotic and often neglected world. His and Adele’s relationship is one that evolves over time and becomes all consuming in every way. Pete has Adele and readers everywhere yearning and panting for more time with this man who is Adele’s everything!

Kylie Scott delivers a love story that is told through a young woman’s eyes who finds love before it is acceptable but withstands the test of time. I highly recommend It Seems Like a Good Idea at the Time for a read that grips your emotions and doesn’t let go! Kylie creates such a profound fictional world and lifelike characters that you never want to leave. I am becoming more of a fan girl and more obsessed with each book of hers that I read.



It was meant to be a soft kiss. A chaste one, even.

The minute my lips touched his, however, everything changed. Callused hands grabbed the sides of my face and my mouth opened on a gasp. His tongue swept inside, taking me over. Holy hell. Shoes and purse hit the floor, forgotten. Nothing about this kiss was slow or easy. The man devoured me. Every ounce of emotion poured into that kiss, all of the anger and frustration between us. His tongue was teasing and tasting, driving me wild. Then he drew back to suck and nip at my bottom lip. One hand slid around the back of my neck, the other over my hip to grab at my ass. His hold was firm, a little rough even. He treated my body like it belonged to him and I wasn’t gentle either.

Apparently experience mattered. Because all I could do was try and keep up.

I held on tight to his open shirt, straining against him, trying to get closer. I’d have crawled inside the man if I could. Turned out that under certain circumstances, the taste of scotch worked for me in a big way. Against my hip, his cock hardened, digging into me. And oh my God, I’d done that to him. Me. How amazing! Meanwhile, my body felt liquid, core aching and empty. I needed him inside of me and it seemed like I’d already been waiting forever.

“Pete. Please.”

“Fuck,” he muttered, breath hot against my ear.

I fumbled at the remaining buttons on his shirt. My damn fingers didn’t seem to be working. Easier to just push the whole thing upward. Luckily, the man decided to help, tearing the shirt off over his head. More skin was good. And he was so hot and smooth, a thrill to the touch. The solid flesh of his pecs and the flat plane of his stomach.

He tore at the zipper on the back of my dress, dragging fabric down over my shoulders. A growl came from the back of his throat, a noise of frustration, impatience. I’m reasonably certain I heard the silk rip. I didn’t care. His hands and mouth seemed to cover every bit of skin revealed, touching and tasting me everywhere. The dress got stuck on my hips. Out of the way enough for now.

He didn’t even bother undoing my bra, simply peeling down one of the lace cups to free my flesh. My breast filled his hot palm as it took the weight. Fingers plumped me, his thumb flicking over my hard nipple. The sting of pain followed by the heat of his kiss made my head spin and my body ache. There was no room for thought as he fed me deep, wet kisses. Slowly, he took us to the floor. No time for anything else. Just the urgent need to have him inside me.

The hardness of the polished wood was cool against my back. My legs were spread, his body between them. And with his broad chest above me, his weight taken on one arm, he was all I could see. I swear even the insides of my thighs were wet, I was so ready. It would have been embarrassing with anybody else. But this man, he had to know, he had to understand. It had always been him.

“Pete, I need—”

“I know,” he said, voice harsh and low.
