Emily is recently widowed - only four months, but her marriage has been dead for a while. Mike is an active service Marine colonel, not long divorced. This book tells the story of how they meet, and have a second chance at love.
The book is unabashedly lusty - I thought the amount of sex going on between the covers, and elsewhere, was straining credulity, but perhaps this has to do with the intended readership. While often explicit, the author manages to keep it romantic rather than pornographic.
The story is told from Emily's point of view, and clearly reflects first-hand knowledge of the impact of a relationship with a soldier on active service, as well as the social life of the periphery of the Marine Corps. Characterization is very good throughout (also beyond the central characters), the plot is entirely plausible and character-driven enough to be interesting. The pace is very good, and the conclusion satisfying. Bill Day was, perhaps, the weakest character (caricature).
One of the strengths of this book was its honest reflection on how the goals of a mature woman looking for love differ from those of a young one. A very good book in this romance niche genre.
The only draw back I found were a few editorial errors which didn't detract from the delightful story which shows how we of the older crowd aren't ready to sit back and let life pass us by just yet. I'm looking forward to the second in this series aimed at the mature readers who still believe in second chances and true love. There aren't enough of these types of books written for the mature women who read and want to be able to relate to the main character without having to back up to young adulthood to do so.
This book is beautiful.
I love that it centres on a couple in their fifties, and that it reveals how incredibly exciting new love is despite your age.
I also like that Emily is perfectly imperfect. She's not got model good looks, but does her best to have a good figure.
I was completely absorbed in the author's world of cotton candy love clouds.
I grinned inanely throughout most of this book.
Sure, they encounter obstacles; it's a romance novel and would be dull without any.
Emily has years' of experience, and I love how she has to struggle to keep Mike at bay.
This builds up some exquisite sexual tension which explodes across the pages eventually.
This is not an erotic book. It's a steamy romance. It's all appropriate and delectable.
It also keeps one foot in realism whilst having a dreamy hero (who has his flaws, obviously).
To call this a military romance seems to do it an injustice.
It's a steamy romance featuring a marine.
I felt all kinds of warm fuzzies reading this book.
Definitely recommend to a friend material.
From the very first chapter, she is saying how tired she is of handling death certificates and everything related to her husband’s death, like the only thing he left to her was a whole bunch of responsibilities. When her nephew invites her to spend some time with him and his family and casually introduces her to two potential candidates, she didn’t even hesitate. She’s ready to start a new relationship, four months after the man, that was supposed to spend his life with her, died.
Another thing that bothered me was how important age and looks are in the story. It’s like they must find the perfect partner right now, before they get any older, because if they start showing aging signs, like wrinkles for example, they will not be able to find anyone that likes them. I found this to be superficial and completely not true. I know people way past their 50s that found love and had more than a few wrinkles.
I did like the fact that both Emily and Mike are fun and like to do exciting things instead of just “dinner and a movie”. I was interested to know where life would get them, and if they could make it work after the first complications appeared.
For now it’s a 3 stars review, maybe with a little more editing and acknowledgment for the poor and forgotten late husband, I would give it 4 stars.
