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.Read more ›
Michael Carlucci, keyboardist, vocalist and songwriter for a hot rock band meets Diane quite by accident in the park when his dog pursues the tantalizing scent of Diane's pastrami sandwich. Despite a nearly twenty-year age difference, Michael is bowled over by the beautiful Diane. He invited her to lunch, then dinner a couple nights later. Diane finds herself attracted to Michael, but the age difference convinces her nothing can come of it. Michael, on the other hand, feels he has found the woman of his dreams. Convincing Diane to give the relationship a chance is another matter.
Ms. Ernst has penned a delightful romance, filled with the unexpected. Great pacing, snappy dialogue and heart-thumping sensual scenes should charm the pickiest reader, but it is her portrayal of Michael that will steal your heart. He is sensitive, gorgeous, wise beyond his years and so utterly wonderful that he steals the show. Diane has very realistic worries about the age difference, how her daughters will react and how the romance will change her comfortable life. Then an old flame comes to town and she is forced to make difficult choices.
I loved this story. There are a few editing problems, but the writing was so good and the story so engaging that I could let them go. I finished the book in two sittings and was thoroughly satisfied with the ending.
Brava Ms. Ernst for allowing me to suspend my disbelief and enjoy Diane's and Michael's journey.

Diane Matthews is a forty-five year old divorced mother of three. He life is filled with her work and family and she is very happy with that. That is until she meets Michael Flynn Carlucci a twenty-six year old member of a boy band. When they meet sparks fly and continue to do so throughout the book.
I really loved Michael. He was so sweet, thoughtful and giving that he was much more mature than most twenty-six year olds. He has been around the music scene since he was sixteen so there is not much he hasn't seen or done but he is still very down to earth and connected with his family.
Diane was an interesting heroine. She was very self-sufficient and was not used to accepting help from anyone. Throughout the book she seemed to always be subtly pushing Michael away with one hand and pulling him closer with the other. It was a very fun journey to take with them.
I only brought it down to four stars because there were some confusing sections where Ernst would switch perspectives in the middle of a chapter or another characters train of thought but they did not take away from the plot or general story.
I was getting nervous and anxious towards the end as to how Ernst was going to wrap everything up but I was very satisfied. I would have liked a little more at the end with Diane and Michael, maybe an epilogue to catch up with them after a few months or so. Mainly because most of the last part of the book we are following Diane so we don't get much of Michael and, like I said, I just loved him and want more with him. Overall I really enjoyed this book and I hope to read more from this author in the future.
