Everything went wrong. And then she went gray.
At 47, newly divorced makeup artist Lela Bennett is dreading her next steps. Dating. Meeting people. Not letting herself go. But then she runs into Donovan James and tries something different—sleeping with her sexy crush from college. Unfortunately, in a post-orgasm stupor, Lela confesses she was in love with Donovan all those years ago. He responds by leaving while she sleeps. The next morning, her gray hairs are practically taunting her. She knows she has to get it together. Forget men. Embrace her age. Own her gray.
Donovan James is a marketing genius, but his ex-wives will tell you—nothing freaks him out like feelings. Three years after his one-night stand with Lela, he's focused on his daughter's lifestyle company, but unprepared to meet the face of their new beauty brand. It's Lela. With stunning silver locks and new confidence, she's no longer swayed by his charms. When business starts booming, the universe seems intent on throwing them together time and again. And suddenly, two people convinced that romance was behind them are wondering if love could be what's next.

I’ve gone and fallen in love with these characters
One of the things that make this book stand out amongst the crowd is it’s focus on a more mature leading couple. I am so grateful to the author for giving us this, as it’s something that’s not easy to find. I adored Lela. She’s strong and feisty and independent, but we see all the vulnerabilities and insecurities she battles every day, too. I liked Donovan, for most of the book. There were definitely times where I wanted to take him and shake him or else smack some sense into his thick head. What I really enjoyed is that we got to see these two grow together, to learn from their past mistakes, and be stronger individuals and partners. There is so much emotion lacing through this book, it’s easy to get all the feels. I’ve gone and fallen in love with these characters and I hate having to let go of them now.
