I love a good second chance love book and I love one that shows that love past forty can be sexy. Thomas is a silver fox and I have to say the cover pulled me in. This man on the cover is f@#$##* hot. Oh, I want a silver fox like that!
The book is about a divorcee who is not really looking for love when a man in his early fifties happens to get hit in the face with a baseball bat and under the drugs and care of the divorcee dentist; he is a goner. He doesn’t remember this of course but when he goes back to be seen, he realizes he was right. This woman is who he wants.
Between her son and his children and the fact that Thomas is a widow-makes for an interesting story. Amy, who became an orthodontist to follow in her father’s footsteps, left a loveless marriage and is gun shy about starting another one.
Thomas is a successful hospital administer who hasn’t dated much. His life has not been the same since losing his wife. Finding Amy gives him purpose. However, she makes is clear from the beginning she doesn’t need a man plus her son is not really happy with her choice.
Things I loved:
The cover pulls you in and adds to the wonderful writing of Mae Wood. The saying, “you can judge a book by its cover” does not apply in romance books. I mean, this cover is what made me pick up the book!
Amy is a mom first and foremost but she doesn’t allow her son’s little tantrums to stop her happiness.
Thomas follows his heart and though he gives his children space and time to come to grips with the idea of him seeing someone new, he too, like Amy gives into his own desires.
All in all, I would give this book 4.5 starts and tell those that love a second chance romance, not to miss out on this gem!
