Experience is an asset.
That’s what Nina Fontaine’s best friend tells her when she moves from the suburbs to New York City following her divorce. As much as Nina appreciates the dating advice, she’s not interested. At forty-five, she’s spent the last fifteen years trying to fit in as a suburban wife. Now she just wants to settle into her new apartment, find a job that will stretch her savings, and figure out what the rest of her life is going to look like.
But that’s before she meets Liam McAlister.
A photojournalist who’s traveled the globe, Liam is gorgeous and smart — not to mention fifteen years younger than Nina.
And he isn’t the only man vying for Nina’s attention.
Rich and powerful, Jack Morgan is Liam’s polar opposite. In spite of Nina’s protests, Jack rolls out the big guns to court her, from black tie galas to last minute trips to Paris.
Both men are determined to win her. As they contribute to her reinvention in different ways, Nina begins to walk a very unfamiliar tightrope. When their passion escalates to a shocking climax, Nina must accept that she may have fallen too hard, too fast — and make a decision that will change her life forever.

Reinventing herself 💃🏽
Very refreshing, relatable and honest! This was most unexpected and Michelle did a marvelous job introducing us to Nina. Nina is a middle age divorcée navigating a new life and trying to discover who Nina Fontaine is. Caught up in a comfortable married life in the suburbs, she completely lost herself and cannot identity with anything now that she’s single again. Everything seems frightening and intimidating but she’s trying to regain or at least rediscover herself. Meeting two very different, handsome, charming men puts her already confused life into a tail spin and she’s now left wondering is it worth it to put yourself out there and take chances. Both men made her feel amazing things she never felt before but with two men, Nina is overwhelmed and she’s now discovering it’s time to focus on Nina. Can’t wait to see her next adventure and how her interaction with these two men will impact their lives. Awesome read and it’s a story that you can relate to.
I actually enjoyed reading this book. It was a bit familiar to a few others I've read but different enough to keep me reading. It wasn't crazy hot, but fun and light - a bit more realistic. Well written with only a few minor mistakes.
The Awakening of Nina Fontaine
First time reading this author, but it won’t be the last. A very different and well written romance. Guess I have become too old, but some of the body part language kind of turns me off, but again, I enjoyed the book and I am moving on to the other two books in the series.
