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.
Just the book I was looking for!
With a gorgeously refreshing voice, Karen Booth blows the unrealistic definition of "prime" being perky bits and youthful bodies into the wind when she brings a middle-aged romance to life with natural depictions of aging, failed relationships and reimagined dreams. GRAY HAIR DON'T CARE is the modern woman's anthem to deserving love at any and all ages, colors, sizes!
Lela is enviable. She's strong and self-assured and she takes advantage of the time following the end of the life she thought she'd be leading for the rest of her life to reassess and start new dreams.
Donovan is delightfully smart enough to be learning life from a fresh perspective now that he's seeing the world through his grown daughter's eyes ... and it's changing him for the better.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves romance, loves humor and loves a cast of really relatable people who you feel like you could truly enjoy hanging out with in life.
All Karen Booth’s books are great and this was awesome as well! Substantive story and funny and romantic. Loved it
