Book Release Blitz for What If It’s Right? by J.B. Heller (REVIEW)……

A woman who put her dating life on hold to raise her nephew finds her life getting complicated the day her nephew's best friend says he wants her in this older woman/younger man romance.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of What If It’s Right? by J.B. Heller, along with my impressions of this flirtatious contemporary romance full of sexual tension and angst, then add it to your bookshelf!

At eighteen, I became my nephew’s guardian, and my once carefree life ceased to exist. The next fourteen years passed in a blur of unconventional parenting and more wine than I’m sure most good mothers consume.

My dating life? Yeah, that basically became non-existent. So when my boy's best friend, Weston, tells me he has romantic feelings for me, I’m too stunned to process the “right way” to react.

There’s so many reasons I shouldn’t do this…and yet my heart seems to be saying full steam ahead.

With a ten year age gap, I know a relationship with Weston has the potential to be disastrous. And I’m not wrong. Because things just got hella complicated...




As a fan of reverse age-gap romances I jumped on this one immediately and for the most part I found it an entertaining tale.  The characters were relatable (though I was repeatedly frustrated by the heroine pushing away the hero), the emotions pushed all my buttons, and it was a quick read that had me quickly turning the pages on a forbidden romance that was mostly forbidden in the heroine's mind.

Weston was a delicious hero and I enjoyed seeing him grow up into the flirtatious, yet assertive, young man who knows who he wants.  Victoria seamlessly stepped into the role of caretaker to her nephew Finn, which was admirable to see, and it made for a heartwarming connection between the two that she was scared to see tainted by her feelings for his friend.  Her fears led to a lot of unnecessary angst though, a lot of unnecessary holding back that had me wanting to scream.  Despite that I was still rooting for these two every step of the way.  Even when tragedy struck I was still invested in this romance and found it a fine addition to the genre and am hoping this leads to more authors giving older heroines their HEAs.

My rating for this is a B.

*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.
