New Release with Review: Caution To The Wind

November 30, 2023


His love should come with a warning label. 

Caution to the Wind by Giana Darling is now live! 

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Giana Darling comes an age gap, second chance love story about a rebel soul and her best friend's dad who wants absolutely nothing to do with her...

I fell in love with my best friend's dad when I was seventeen. 
He seemed like some kind of heathen god, big enough to kill a man with his bare hands, tattooed with bright, bold images, and weathered by time and a short stint in prison. 
Blind to the consequences, I made a mistake that ran him out of town and ruined his life. 
Now, he's back after all these years—hating me more than the day he left. 
What he doesn't know is that I've been working to atone for my sins. 
I've infiltrated the Vancouver Triad that killed his wife. 
Always my protector, he decides it's not safe for me to be in this alone, so he resolves to get me out of the Triad and out of his hair for good.

Special Edition Hardcover Coming Soon!




I have been waiting for this book for a very long time to the point where I had honestly given up on it. It was more than a highly anticipated because I knew the story itself was going to be gritty, forbidden and dangerous and after reading this, I was absolutely right.

From a very young age, Mei has had almost everything that her heart's desire but still feeling like an outcast and not loved. Everything changed when she met her best friend Cleo at nine years old and they've been inseparable since. That friendship gave her love, let her embrace her Chinese culture more, and it set her on a path of finding justice for a tragedy that's going to shape her life. But through it all the one thing that kept Mei going was knowing that not only she had her best friend, that friendship gave her someone else and he's more than off limits.

Henning-Axe Man has seen his fair share of tragedy and as the years go by, it seems to get worse. Now on a mission to get to the truth about something that happened years ago, Axe knows that his choices from here on out is going to set other things in motion. Some for the better, some for the worse and there's one girl who's going to constantly be in his orbit.


Everyone that knows me knows that I do not play around with forbidden age gap romance. I love everything about it and that's not going to change any time soon. The crackling of sexual tension, the forbidden current, the stolen moments, I love it all and when I saw this one, I needed it like a cool drink of water after being in the desert for so long. I will admit that I didn't feel the connection between the main characters for quite some time but thankfully that changed a bit for part 2.

This was a complicated story between two characters that have endured so much pain over the course of the years and they wear their scars sometimes too proudly at times. Mei and Axe were always in sync with one another even when they were younger but I loved seeing it when they were older. After some dangerous encounters and fueled anger that span for nearly a decade, these characters will test you but you'll be glad that you took their journey. If you're a fan of this author or you love forbidden MC romance with a tough heroine, this one's for you.

This is a standalone but characters from the author's previous books are mentioned. Keep in mind that this is a MC family so if you're curious about other couples, I would recommend you read their books.
