At times I wasn't sure what genre of book I was reading and whilst this sounds like the story would be disjointed and not work, it most certainly wasn't and it did. The twists and turns, the suspense, the hot sex scenes and the amazingly written characters all add up to a riveting and captivating read.
If you are a fan of Ms Jamison you will know that her books are not typical 'will they, won't they' romances but are much more focused on the growth of the characters she writes about, and the developing (or not) relationship between them. There are some very steamy and kinky sex scenes in the book but they do fit into the plot and are a minor part of the story. In fact I was almost a little disappointed that there weren't more of them! However the tense plot line picks up for the last third of the book and hot sex scenes would have been out of place.
I have to say that this isn't the book you would expect from something described as a 'May to December Romance'. There were lots of occasions through this book when I really wasn't sure of how the story would develop and I was almost tempted to flick to the 'last page' to see how the story would finish. I'm glad I didn't but I ended up reading very late into the night, and whilst eating my breakfast etc. in my desperation to know how the story would develop (much like Brandon does when reading one of Kimberley's books!)
Thank you Jade C Jamison for allowing me an advanced review copy of this book, it was an honour to receive it and a pleasure to read and review it.
What an all-encompassing emotional read.
Your foreword makes total sense, first off you think it’s just an older woman having improper thoughts about her deceased son’s friend, but he is certainly not giving those vibes.
Kimberley, (Kim) mum to three children, in her late 40’s, is getting on with her life as an Author, after a humiliating break up and divorce.
Brandon, a discharged Soldier, looking to pass on his friend’s love to his Mother, and siblings. It all starts off very innocently but soon turns to friendship. And onto more. Kimberley saw something in Brando, apart from a hot, sexy, ex-Marine, he was also very troubled, they both saw something in each other. Both were very insecure and probably insular but felt an ease around each other.
Kim’s other children Annabel and JR were great, cheeky, pushed the boundaries like all kids but were good solid dependable kids who also got on well with Brandon.
Brandon is full of guilt, and as dark as it is, he was able to find strength I Kim’s guidance even if her motives weren’t pure to start with, they fell into their routine and developed feelings.
I was a little shocked with Brandon’s thoughts on how BDSM would help Kim’s wariness but it appeared to help them both, nurturing them to feel better about themselves.
‘The Program’ as scary and shocking as is, you feel this could be a very real situation hopefully dealt with in a very caring and understanding manor. It certainly played a huge part in the development of Kim and Brandon’s characters.
Happy with how it all worked out with them both opening up and communicating more.
Tough subject matter, but a beautiful story, told with compassion but with a very sexy undertone, sending you to reach for a fan and a cold drink…

Beyond the sexiness that Ms. Jamison writes so well, this book delves much deeper into many issues, the most pressing of which is PTSD, particularly in veterans. She does a wonderful job of delving into this territory that needs to be more widely addressed. The heartbreak of watching someone go through it, the fear of the unknown, the insecurities of an older woman.....it hit home more deeply than I thought it would. Then there is the suspense, the toying with conspiracy theories, a slight binge into BDSM (and while I have repeatedly said I am completely over all things BDSM, it played a pivotal role in the book, and focuses mostly on the woman's diverging thoughts on the matter-while I still don't love the current overuse of it, this was extremely well written and compelling.) I guess you could say it has a little something for everyone (over the age of 18.)
Very highly recommended, and I have already thought of several friends I will recommend this go on their must read list.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book for a voluntary, completely honest, and non-incentivized review.
