Jillian is in her late 30s and has it all figured out or so she thought until the drop dead gorgeous Guitarist disrupts everything she thought was perfect .I've never felt such a connection between two characters like chase and Jillian. They give u hope that love conquers all. I have to say Perry had to be one of my favorite characters I connected with her in so many ways her outgoing snarkyness gave this book the humor it needed to tie all these characters together in a perfect way. Bree Dahlia I salute u, high five you whatever I can do to let u know that u write the hottest I mean panties wet sex scenes I've read in a long time (let me just say I was hunting my husband out ;). This book had me all over the place when I though I knew what was going on I had no idea every page kept me wanting more! If you like a romance with some drama, humor and some great sex scenes this book is for you! I can't wait to read More by this amazing author❤
This Ebook was provided for an honest review.
It's the continuation love story between Chase and Jillian. Their happy ever after from Legal, book #1, is thrown off balance as the reality of introducing her son, Daniel to her boyfriend.
I was attracted to this duet with the younger man older woman trope in Legal. It was filled with the raw and animalistic sex between new lovers you crave to read about. This time around, it's about tenderness and cuddling. Jillian is settling into the idea of a future with Chase, possible having a baby and marriage. Chase is trying to prove to her he is and will be the best man for the job. While Legal explored Jillian as the sexy and tempting older woman, Lyrical explores Jillian as mother. A little too much reality for my romance escapism.
In conclusion, it’s a good read. It's a genuine love story that won't make you blush -- too much, but just enough. It devotes a lot to character development with balancing motherhood with Daniel and sexuality with Chase without many explicit sex scenes.
At the start of the story Jill seems fully committed to Chase, happy and satiated in their relationship. With Daniel soon coming home though she starts stressing out and reviving fears that don't truly exist. Daniel at first seems fine with Chase, but Jill keeps waiting for a problem to arise instead of just being happy. Her interactions with Daniel further frustrated me by her coddling of him and by letting his feelings rule her time with Chase, instead of standing up for what's in her heart. When Daniel's relationship with Cassie further taints Jill's connection to Chase she again doesn't stand up for her love which takes her and Chase to the edge and left me deeply disappointed in her. She may seem okay with their age difference early on but there's evidence to the contrary as she again employs toxic chemicals to make her look younger with pain, twisted humor, and embarrassment the result. Though he's never given her reason to doubt him, she does have a moment of hesitation whenever he's in the company of younger women that ultimately ruined the warm fuzzies I had before starting this story.
Chase is fully committed to Jill at the start of this story, wanting to make things permanent between them. Though he'd love to have a child with her, he's more committed to having her more than anything else. His love and devotion to her is clear from the start which makes him the quintessential book boyfriend in my mind. In their erotic encounters he worships her body and takes away any doubts she may have regarding age and looks with a single scorching sentence. He allows himself to be set aside so she can devote time to her son and never pushes to be accepted by the young man, instead he lets his actions define who he is. He's a delicious hero with a heart of gold he wears on his sleeve, always reassuring her and believing her when a nefarious act casts her commitment in doubt. He's there for her when she needs care and support and is the highlight of this story who doesn't get a heroine worthy of him until the very end.
From start to finish this was an engaging story despite my frustrations. My favorite parts of the story involved the delicious Chase and Jill's friend and soon-to-be sister-in-law Perry, whose antics always put a smile on my face. Chase was a worthy hero who could do no wrong in my eyes and defended Jill and their love at every turn. Perry was a supportive friend who was a cheerleader for them every step of the way as well as pointing out the truth about Cassie early on. Balanced with these highs are the lows of Daniel, and his childish and manipulative behavior, along with Cassie's nefarious machinations. Daniel was judgmental and a bit sanctimonius, making Jill choose between her love for him and for Chase. Cassie's the most grating part of this story for me as her actions became truly twisted. From using Daniel to trying to blackmail Jill, her misdeeds became over-the-top and turned this tale into a soap opera. Just as quickly as she came on the scene, she ultimately exited which left me unsatisfied as she deserved a heartier comeuppance. On a whole, while I was left cheering by the end of the idyllic epilogue, the journey to get there had me undergoing a gamut of emotions. I was often frustrated, charmed a time or two, but ultimately I was won over by the unwavering love Chase felt for Jill and am immensely satisfied where they are by the final page...and hope it's a truly HEA for them this time around.
