He’s hot, young, and way off-limits... But he might be just what she needs to get over the past and on with her life.
Lisa Taylor’s life stalled after her divorce three years ago, and she never got it started up again. Now her shit-paying catalogue photography job is boring her to death, she can’t bear to look in the mirror, and she hasn’t had a man since her asshole ex left.
When a gorgeous younger man reappears in her life, he promises to be the solution to all those problems. Tempting as he is -- and god almighty, he is! -- taking what he offers could destroy what little she has left.
I'm part of a great book club on facebook, that we are gifted books, we read, review, and we get together and do a q&a via facebook with the author. This has allowed my to try out some authors that I may have never read, Julie Jaret falls into this group.
MS Jaret wove a funny sexy tale that makes a song come to mind. Stacey's Mom - "Stacey's Mom really has it going on- you know I'm not the little boy I used to be, I'm all grown up now- she's all I wanted for so long.... yeah that song. Well that almost fits this book perfectly.
The banter that Lisa has with herself and her best friend over what to do about her neighbor's son Braden is absolutely hilarious. I could really see myself saying some of those things.
Then she starts to heat things up and she goes over in her mind what will people think? Which that again is exactly what I would do, but even with all of that she just can't help herself. Jaret finally turns the heat to scorching and curls my toes.
MS Jaret has a few surprises up her sleeve and things may or may not end the way you think they should, but they made me want to read the next book so MS Jaret gets a job well done.
