She's as perfect as it gets, the tabloids blare, but suddenly, Eden, the heroine of Kargman's fun and flashy if not exactly groundbreaking latest, is staring at middle age, a dead-end relationship, and regrets about the one who got away. Still, the biggest downer for the downtown arts-scene beauty is her upcoming 40th birthday. So she does what any tasty piece of arm candy does—finds a rich, charming, 28-year-old hunk of her own. Don't be afraid to cougar out, best friend Allison urges. Not everyone is happy with the choice, least of all art-king Otto, who still needs the leggy beauty for his muse. But when young Chase falls hard for Eden, she finds herself thinking more and more about her first, perfect love, Wes. The ending is a foregone conclusion, but Kargman's quick wit and fast-moving story bounce along agreeably, assisted by the amusing quotes that kick off each chapter (Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician). Kargman (The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund) gets it, even if her heroine doesn't. (May)

Eden is the gorgeous, glamorous muse and lover of abstract painter Otto, who is much older than her. Twenty years ago, she was a struggling model, and she broke her own heart by choosing money and security over her doting boyfriend. Though Otto and Eden have been together since then and have a son, they never married, and Eden turns a blind eye to Otto’s dalliances in exchange for wealth and ease. Now that she is nearly 40, the arrangement doesn’t seem so appealing, and she leaves Otto. Not long after, she meets Chase Lydon, as blue-blooded a New Yorker as they come—and 11 years her junior. She loves the whirlwind new life, but just as their relationship blossoms, Eden’s first love comes back into her life. Eden isn’t sure if it’s her age or her ego, but she knows she is on the cusp of an important choice. Kargman’s third novel is a romance for anyone who has felt that age is just a number. --Hilary HattonSee all Editorial Reviews

From the very beginning, this book seemed juvenile and never improved. A total disappointment coming from Kargman... liked her other books but this one was awful. Read morePublished on April 4, 2011 by ASDF
This is quick chick lit. The story is really shallow, and there is no character development. The descriptions about the Upper East Side of New York are interesting, but the city... Read morePublished on February 1, 2011 by Assunta Sciarretta
