I really loved Michael Carlucci's character. He was young with an old soul, gifted, charming, and sexy! I really loved that he's not six feet tall like most romantic heroes. While a towering hunk is attractive, realistically there are equally sexy men out there that barely top 5 feet 8. As a woman whose husband is shorter than her, I found this part of his character to be endearing. Short men can be hot too! For me, Michael makes the story and I found myself rooting for him as he fell head over heels in love with Diane.
The heroine, however, felt a little flat for me. Most of the descriptions of her and her life felt mundane and without much spark. I have to admit I wasn't really pulled into the story until Michael stepped onto the scene. Through Micheal's eyes Diane shines, but on her own there wasn't much there for me to identify with. However, I did admire that this woman was a single mother of three and managed to hang on to her sex appeal and vitality.
The romance was hot...scorching in fact! Although about halfway through the book the story hit a lull in which it seemed like Diane and Michael were just waiting for the first opportunity to fall into bed together. For a significant part of the book it seems to be all about sex, at least for Diane and its hard to see any real relationship blooming until a little later. It's pretty obvious that Michael loves her early on....it takes Diane a little longer to get on board.
More conflict is added in and the focus is taken off of sex as Quinn, a man Diane once loves comes back into the picture.Naturally Quinn is the recommended and easier choice. The same age as Diane, he has grown children and is in the same phase of life as she is. However, her feelings for Michael have her torn. I enjoyed the play of emotion that took place as Diane struggled to figure out who it is she loved. And of course there were plenty of naysayers to Michael and Diane's relationship because of age, which was to be expected.
One small issue I had with the book other than the part that was all about the sex, was that it dragged in places. I feel like it could have used a little tightening up and a little less description of everyday sort of things. After a while it got monotonous and i would have preferred to have some of this glossed over.
Other than that, the book was a gem and I look forward to reading more of Dee Ernst's work in the future. If all of her books are like this, then I look forward to more wit, charm, and spicy romance!

I found this to be an easy and comfortable read but have to admit that while I enjoyed the book, it didn't blow me away.
Diane was a lovely character, I got a feeling of homeliness from her and so I warmed to her pretty much straight away. An exciting encounter whilst trying to eat her sandwich for lunch led to a dreamy experience with a hot rock star called Michael - the two of them together were electric and I could almost feel the sparks jumping out of the page at me.
Michael was a fantastic character and I really wanted to hear more from his point of view. He was sexy but with a sensitive side that just made me want to jump in the book and bring him home with me . His family and friends were entertaining and I enjoyed the scenes that included them.
I liked the idea for the story, it would certainly be a dream situation to find yourself in. It also tackled some sensitive issues like the struggles and worries of dating after a divorce, particularly when you have teenage children! Obviously I can't relate to this but found it interesting nonetheless.
Some of it was a bit predictable but I enjoyed following Diane and Michael's journey nonetheless.
This was an enjoyable read - a perfect book to curl up on the sofa with.
