MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:

Readers looking for a quick yet immensely satisfying read will get just that with this older woman/younger man romance.  Years of being next door neighbors, years of finding a connection and a level of comfort as friends, has slowly become something more.  While some might frown upon the age difference I found these two a delightful duo whose romance swept me off my feet.

Stacey is still trying to recover from the end of her marriage and her ex starting a family with someone else.  Just when she thought she had her life all planned out she was left blindsided by betrayal and is left full of self-doubt.  Just when she needed an ego boost most her next door neighbor returns home and every perception she had of him gets upended.  Where once stood a young boy now stands a man...a drool-worthy man who wears his heart on his sleeve and who has a plan to finally claim Stacey.  Stacey’s a likable heroine whose self-esteem was bruised by her ex but who is slowly putting herself out there again.  She’s always felt comfortable around Ren, found him easy to talk to, but his being younger always kept her from admitting more.  With his return she can no longer deny his sensuality and charm and though she acknowledges the issues surrounding their age difference she doesn’t let it keep her from what her heart desires for too long in a realization that had me cheering.

While Stacey’s an admirable heroine it’s Ren who’s the highlight of this story and with each word and deed readers will fall in love with him too.  He’s always been attracted to Stacey but it was a teenager’s attraction and based on hormones.  Getting to interact with her on a more personal level the previous summer gave him greater insight into her heart and made his attraction burn brighter.  He’s already played the field and sowed enough wild oats to know that Stacey’s his future.  He just needs to convince her, and his overprotective mother of it, in a romance that warmed my heart while making me blush.  Ren was the quintessential book boyfriend.  He was committed to Stacey from the moment he returned and was willing to do whatever it took to convince her of their perfection.  He told it like it was, poured his heart out to her, and every layer of his heart that was revealed made him even more delicious.  He might have been younger in years, but he was wise in knowing just what Stacey needed and ended up being the perfect match for her.

This was a sweet and sexy read that made for an afternoon of decadent delights.  Stacey and Ren were a combustible couple whose interactions were beautifully balanced between erotically-charged encounters and tender moments.  While issues over their age difference are touched on they’re not dragged out.  The angst over it is quickly dealt with and again shows Ren’s maturity.  From start to finish this story held me captive in its warm embrace and with its HFN I can still picture their dreamy life together and recommend it to all lovers of romance.

My rating for this is an A.

    1. I didn’t think the age difference was that big of a deal either. And, as I said, Ren’s very mature for his age and felt like a much better fit for her than her ex. It was a truly entertaining romance with a hero that I’m still thinking of.

      Thanks for stopping by again, Mary!

    2. I received the rights back to my book, In Flames - I think you reviewed that in the past - and am revising and having it re-edited for re-release. I'm thrilled about this. Plus, I have an interracial story I'm writing now called Sugar Me. :)
