Signing divorce papers the same week she turned forty wasn’t part of Janie McAlister’s happily ever after. With an empty nest and no cheating spouse to look after, her future’s in desperate need of a makeover. Her quirky sister’s tropical getaway gift seemed a perfect place to start. But instead of thatched roof huts and designer pools, she’s landed at the one seventies throwback in the Riviera Maya—and caught the attention of a bold young man who won’t take no for an answer.
Zade Painel’s a man on a mission—grab some much needed R&R at Gypsy Cove, and figure out how to reclaim his boudoir photography business. He never thought the answer would come in the form of a curvy, forty-year-old redhead and an accidental knee to the ‘nads, but Janie’s a force of nature with a penchant for fixing things. She’s also sexy as hell, despite her hangup with him being a younger man.
He’ll show her age is just a number, starting with a very grown up invitation—stick to what society says is right, or give time and attention to her own desires and claim what Janie wants.

Outstanding character development throughout the story. Excellent plot and story never loses momentum. A touching contemporary romance. Without reservation, I wholeheartedly recommend this book.

Sexy and Sweet
Rhenna Morgan tells the story of Janie, a recently divorced woman who finds herself at a crossroads in her life. Having spent years nurturing other people, Janie has lost sight of Janie. In a heartwarming, honest and sweet May/December romance, Janie meets Zade, a much younger man. Despite the age difference, the attraction between the couple sizzles from their first encounter. The book is typical of a Rhenna Morgan romance, hot, funny and jump off the page real. It's so refreshing to read a book about an older woman, and the younger man scenario challenged some of my issues around it. But Zade is a swoon worthy hero, and let's face it, who doesn't want what Janie wants.
