Hey Homer, I get it now! Woohoo!
FYI, this reader can count on her fingers how many authors have gotten four stars. Brava Carian Cole.
I would so worship at the church of Lukas. I really would. I went into his book already crushing on the man thanks to his chat with Toren in Torn and I swear this man made me all kinds of twitterpated and swoony. His open honesty and charm mixed with that touch of dark, dominant smexy alphaness seriously did me in. Ivy, I was ready to help the woman bury bodies. I really was. My heart broke for her, but I loved how ~ with a few nudges along the way ~ she came out so much stronger in the end. I loved watching their relationship grow, it was sweet and smexy and I was definitely rooting for them the entire time. The crap thrown their way pissed me off, and that big ‘ole clusterf*ck#r had me reaching for that spoon, but I thought the way they handled all of it, was exactly how it should be handled given their situations. I seriously adored this book, Lukas may have ruined me for any of the other males in either series, and though I am kicking myself for not starting on this series earlier, I figure it’s better late than never :)
As someone who doesn’t have kids but am in my thirties, I often feel like I’m in another time zone talking to women with kids, both younger and older than me, so I know how having kids can make you feel older and at another stage in your life. This romance displayed it perfectly.
I hate to admit it but the one thing I liked about the story were the villains. I hated them so much and couldn’t understand the decisions they made just to keep the hero and heroine apart. It made me really root for the hero and heroine and just made me despise the people in Ivy’s life that claimed to have loved her. People really think they can move on but you have have to be single and miserable while they live their best lives. While ivy took longer than I thought she should’ve to come around and hear Lukas’s explanation, I understand why she did. When something involves people you gave life to, you love to believe you know them and that you taught them not to lie but what her daughter did was really unforgivable. Her ex husband was even worse of a person.
Overall I loved the book! Can’t believe this was my first book by this author.

An old soul in a hot young body, Lukas has lived a thousand lives when he meets Ivy. She’s older, a mother of two and about to be divorced. But their souls sing out to each other, and Lukas knows he’s found his match.
The path to true love never runs smooth, however. Ivy’s initial reticence over the age gap between them is a challenge he readily accepts, and wins. Her ex husband does his damnedest to split them up, and just when you think they’ve overcome everything, another bombshell is dropped into their lives.
Lukas and Ivy are wonderful characters. They are passionate, intelligent, loving, articulate people who deserve a happy ending. This story fits so well into the wider series, and I love how the stories weave in and out of each other. Reading the same scene from so many different perspectives is brilliant. I think this is my favourite book of the series so far.
This book was a five star until close to the last chapters.. Enter SPOILER FROM NOW ON.
While I had no issue with what the daughter did, * she was a spoiled little bitch in my book*, I didn't think the author carried it off well at all. It was too fast, too sudden, and the effect it had too drastic in such a small time frame of readable lines and paragraphs. While her skill as a writer isn't challenged because the lady can most definitely write, I just didn't think she hadn't the skill to take on a subject that had a daughter behave as she did in trying to set up her mother's much younger fiance and the mothers instinctive knee jerk reaction which while was right in reality, felt very much that of a woman totally blind to how much a brat her daughter could be and how big a bastard her ex was. While reading it I felt like it was a 'Duh' moment when the h woke up to the fact her H was innocent. It just felt too rushed so the impact never happened beyond a faint eye roll and wanting to smack Mum for not seeing what her daughter was doing. There just wasn't enough time given in that incident to produce the emotion that a plot of that kind deserved even if you were to believe Lukas might be a dog. So a loss of a star for moving too fast on something that warranted better and more in dept coverage to squeeze all the hurt out of the situation.
Anyway to that point it was a the perfect love story...perfect win of each others hearts, perfect guy who was an old head on young shoulders. He was gorgeous. Pity that mother and daughter were so stupid on both sides of their fences. It was redeemed in the epilogue simply because of the arrival of a lovely new baby and I hope that story isn't left to lie there but is looked into further with the respect such a plot deserves. I don't like doors being opened that aren't treated with care where children are concerned....so I'll be watching.
Despite my issue with that awful teenage daughter, it added the drama that seems to be a formula of these books, it's a great
story with a beautiful young man who has more sense than some of the women he's taken on in his life. He deserves all the happiness his intended bride MUST now give him.
4 stars easily but robbed of 5 because of the shoddy way the drama was dealt with, which was a pity. But I feel positive irrespective of that, the book carries enough joy to shake off that bump....so enjoy.
I love these books and recommend that you read the others first to enjoy this to its full potential.
When 30 something Ivy finds herself single again she decides to throw caution to the wind and do the stuff she has always wanted to do, like get a tattoo.
What she doesn't expect to find is a hot young man who wants Ivy to be his.
Is age only a number?
Can an older woman and a younger man work?
Read on and find out.
I adored their story and truly didnt want it to end.
