Poignant, well crafted story with multiple plot lines. Author Josie Kerr did a very nice job with her 1st novel and lovingly created the world of Em and Mick, both in their forties, who fall in love after heartache, disappointment and grief.
Very satisfying. Ms. Kerr reminded me how satisfying and sexy a romance can be with mature adults who are living in the real world where love doesn't always work out the first time. The characters grapple with some very serious issues, for ex., the male lead faced terrible child abuse and trauma and the female lead also faced loneliness and loss. The novel also shows how people can overcome or move on from such loss by the love of friends and family.
A few characters are first or second Irish immigrants so there is a smattering of Irish/Gaelic slang, as well as some boxing dens, MMA fighters and other interesting elements. These include restored Victorian houses, a curvy nerdy girl who loves books and antiques, a hero who suffered terribly growing up but is kind and mentors kids like him and a lot of people in many walks of life who are basically good people.
I will definitely look out for the author's next book.
We meet Em who is not doing too good at work and her relationship, not because of her mind you but because of her surroundings and the people around her. There’s only one thing to do and that’s to leave it all behind and start something new, start doing what you’ve been wanting to do forever and with that will come good things, at least she hopes they will. Which let’s face it, it wouldn’t be a good book if good things didn’t happen to come her way, especially in the form of one very attractive neighbor. Mick is living day by day and just surviving, not really looking for anything or anyone especially after the life and luck he’s had in life (bad luck). He just wants to keep going and nothing more, that is until he meets his new neighbor and a spark flies, a spark he hasn’t felt in years. There is life after tragedy.
The chemistry between the two main characters, and let’s face it everyone in this book, is outstanding. I love the little bit of Irish and other nuances in this book, it’s always good to learn new phrases here and there. After all a bad bit nice, has an interesting ring to it, right? So yes not only is there chemistry between Em and Mick but also between their best friends, they can make it a party! There are some real issues throughout the book it’s not all about getting down to business in the best sense of the word, there is history that is being dealt with on both ends. Sometimes the things you go through in life are what make you who you are though, and I think it works out for them but it’s a struggle to get there.
Overall I thought this was a great book and a really great start to a series, sure they’ve all been printed already but I’m interested and I’m jumping in full force and if you haven’t already I suggest you do too. Love the characters. Great story plot, love the couple and the setting. There was a bit of action, drama, great friendships, bad exes and sad stories. Overall kept me wanting to read it in one sitting!
I loved reading a romance about mature adults, with believable baggage. And I'll join everyone else in remarking that the hero is quite HOT even if you aren't a fan of beards and tattoos. I think my favorite thing about the book was the friendships between Em and her pal Ashley, and Mick and Rory. Everyone feels like a real person, with their own quirks and history and believable way of relating to each other -- this isn't one of those books where everyone sounds exactly alike because they all sound like the inside of the author's head.
Highly recommended -- likable characters, fun sex, some humor and some heartbreak. And of course, a happily ever after.

I love a good romance novel, but I get so tired of every book being about 20 year olds in college.Read more
