From USA Today and WSJ Bestselling author Laramie Briscoe comes a new reverse age-gap, single-parent romance.
My sister’s best friend has always taken my breath away…
At twenty-two most guys my age are living it up. Swiping left and right, trying to find what’s good for the night, instead of what’s good for life.
Me? I have one of the best examples to follow. Trick and Hadley Tennyson are still in love twenty-plus-years on, and dad is looking to slow down.
Which means I have a decision to make.
Take the shop, or make my own way.
I thought I had it all worked out, until a single-mom with brunette hair, blue eyes, and the cutest son ever needed my help on a freezing, snowy night.
Declan Tennyson was always cute and annoying. My best friend’s little brother could always be counted on to be underfoot, or secretly listening to our girl talk.
But the last three years?
He grew into a man without me noticing.
Being a single-mom is harder than I ever expected it to be, and I haven’t had time to notice anything.
Not until the night Declan saved us in the snow, and if I’m not careful, he’s gonna end up saving me from myself.
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a wonderful story. I LOVE the reverse age-gap here. There are so few of them and I can't stop reading them.
Declan's older sister, Riley, has a BFF by the name of Claudia. She is a single mom to a three year. She works and also attends college to get a better paying job. That way she can move out of her mother's place and provide better for her son, Jay. Claudia gets some support from her mother (who likes to remind Claudia of her wrong choices.) But she does watch the boy on occasions.
When Declan is walking home from the bar, in a winter storm, he comes across Claudia and Jay. She ran her car into a ditch and is stuck. Declan helps her out. He has already fallen in love with Claudia years ago but knew that he probably didn't stand a chance with the beautiful woman. After only having a few people to depend on, when Jay's father fails, Claudia calls Declan for help.
This starts the connect between these two. But will things come between them. Can they overcome the age different? Will Jay's father make problems for them? Will Claudia put the brakes on the relationship as she is older than Declan?
Again, the story was a wonderful one but the last few pages felt a little rushed to me. But then it could be that I didn't want the story to be over.
This is a slightly sexy story. Not too many and not a lot of details either. It would be easy to skip those few small scenes in order to read this.
Declan and Claudia
Declan has always had a thing for his older sisters best friend Claudia. When he happens upon her and her son stranded in the snow he helps them and more. Claudia has a hard time accepting help from anyone, especially a younger man. Will she let him in to give them a chance at a future. Good, quick read, always leaves me wanting!
Pull at your heartstrings quick read that had me feeling all kinds of emotions. Claudia is strong, determined, a fantastic mother that will do anything to make sure her son Jay has a better life growing up than she had. Declan is very mature for being younger, determined, strong willed and protective of the ones he loves. I was so excited to read this book and it was absolutely worth the wait.
