Ever lost yourself to self doubt? Stuck on the non stop roundabout of the mundane and habit? Meet our leading lady...divorced three years ago as her husband left her for the family friend (think Jerry Springer) in a dead end soul sucking job that just about covers the bills, with the bitter aftertaste of a failed marriage flavoring her every thought. She is just past forty and has retained every negative comment ever made about her so she can no longer look at herself in the mirror.
Braden is the older brother her son never had, returning home after a nasty accident on the football pitch, he decides he is now mature enough to reveal his true intentions. This is a story of self discovery as he teaches her to reconnect with who she really is. He shows her how to view herself as others do and instills confidence. In return she encourages him to bit just be a pretty face and make something of his talents.
It is a love story, full of passion and the added eroticism of the slight wrongness of the situation. She's a cougar although a resistant one at first! The plot is beautifully written, engaging and realistic so you connect strongly to the main character and empathise completely.
I recommend this to anyone looking for something hot, steamy but with a strong positive vibe to it too. She is like the ugly duckling ...she turns into a self confident, successful, beautiful swan.
It was about Lisa, a single mother of a teenage boy, Jake.
While Lisa was doing everything she could to make ends meet, she was unfortunately tethered to the most reprehensible of dead beat exes, and really he was an ass! You will hate him on sight!
She lives almost vicariously through her best friend Natalie, and that is because she is too dang busy.
But when a gorgeous young specimen winds up on her front lawn, she is blown away when she finds out that he is not there by mistake, he is trying to show her that he cares and wants to help.
Because this young buck is none other than the young man that she used to have as a babysitter, Braden.
This book was full of funny, sexy and a whole lot of naughty but the relationship that develops if far from straight forward.
The book really was all about Lisa, about a woman left broken by a cheating husband and what it takes for her to find the new her inside.
Now there is an age gap between the two of them – a serious gap but love knows no bounds and refuses to be curtailed by something as trivial as a few years.
The book isn’t too far off what you would imagine but I have to say that it was beautifully written and I found the whole book a glorious journey and I was pulled along with the entire scenario but I was delighted that the author managed to switch things up a bit and take the story in a direction that many would have considered off base.
This story was fantastic and I absolutely LOVED it! In Extreme Close-Up we meet Lisa who is a 40ish divorced mother with one son. She has been divorced for two years but not dated and thinks her body is unattractive due to the ten pounds she kept on after having a baby - 15 years ago! Lisa is a photographer with her own business where she struggles to earn enough to pay the bills. Her son is away at camp so an old friend of his comes to cut the grass. Lisa sees a gorgeous young man cutting her grass so goes to tell him he is at the wrong address when she realizes it's is her son's friend, Brady, who is doing the job and he is in the right place. Lisa can't believe Brady is so grown up and looks so hot - oh yea, Brady is eight years older than Lisa's son.
Turns out that Brady (now called Braden) has had a thing for Lisa since he was 12 and now at 23 he still does. Braden was a football player in college but an injury ended that path. He wasn't disappointed because he wanted to use his brain, not body, to make a career. Braden is a really nice young man, being very respectful and polite. Since Braden was still attracted to Lisa he thought this was his chance to act on that attraction.
The story and characters were very believable. The author amazed me in writing a story about an older woman and younger man and made it seem completely acceptable. Braden helped Lisa accept herself the way others saw her which was much better than she saw herself. Lisa helped Braden realize that he could go back to school and take the career path he really wanted.Read more ›
