Genres: Erotica, Romance
If you'd asked me what love was two years ago, I probably would've said, 'It's this amazing feeling that obsesses and possesses you; it's what me and my husband currently have.' If you ask me that same question today, I'll say, 'Please get the hell out of my face.’
Claire Gracen's life is picture perfect. Her career as a marketing director is on the brink of being legendary, and her marriage to her high school sweetheart has never been stronger. No, wait. It has. It used to be amazing and fulfilling, but one day Claire realizes that she's been living a lie and her best friend and husband have committed the ultimate betrayal.
Broken and depressed, Claire is in need of something new—new city, new job, new friends.
When she happens to attract the interest of the sexiest man she's ever met, a man significantly younger than her, she immediately turns him down—only to later discover that this man is Jonathan Statham, self-made billionaire and CEO of Statham Industries. Her boss.
Jonathan Statham is unlike any man she's met before. He's used to getting whatever he wants—whenever he wants, and he isn't about to take no for an answer.
Sexy, unpredictable, and charmingly clever, Mid Life Love is a story that will captivate you, entertain you, and force you to fall deeply in love with the characters.
For Mature Audiences
I love Whitney Garcia Williams. Her stories are refreshing and her characters are usually fun, unpredictable, and relatable. I liked the premise of the Mid-Life Love, but my frustration with the main character, Claire, prevented me from loving it.
Jonathan is THE ultimate book boyfriend, and he is unrelenting in his pursuit of Claire. He doesn’t care that she is older. Claire, however, is extremely hung up on their age difference and it takes the entire book for her to feel comfortable with it. At first she refuses to date him. After he finally wears her down, she spends the rest of the book hiding their relationship—not because he’s her boss, but because she doesn’t want to seem like a cougar—often treating Jonathan like a jerk in the process. I just wanted to scream at her to get over herself!
Despite these things, it’s a sweet story. There’s Claire’s crazy friend, Helen, to add a dose of humor, and some sexy times are thrown in for good measure. A little drama is thrown in for good measure. Mid-Life Love is the first book in a two-part series, but there is no cliffhanger.Mid-Life Love: At Last by Whitney G.
Series: Mid-Life Love #2
Published by Whitney Gracia Williams on October 15th 2013
**Book Two in the Mid Life Love series**
If you ask me if Jonathan Statham makes me happy, I’ll say ‘Absolutely. He’s the man of my dreams and I can’t wait to marry him.’ If you ask me why my ex-husband Ryan is currently one inch away from me—staring into my eyes and pressing his hand against my cheek, I’ll say, ‘I have no f*cking idea…’
Claire Gracen finally has the life she’s always wanted: A career she loves, a man who’s willing to do any and everything for her, and friends that show her the true meaning of the word ‘friendship.’
As she and Jonathan prepare to make the ultimate commitment to one another and plan the wedding of her dreams, she quickly realizes that the hurtful past she left behind in Pittsburgh is a lot closer than she thought.
Sexy, unpredictable, and as charmingly clever as Mid Life Love, ‘At Last’ will captivate you from the first page and never let you go.
Mid-Life Love: At Last picks up with Claire and Jonathan preparing for their wedding. Claire has a thriving new interior design business and she is (thankfully!) no longer bothered that Jonathan is much younger. Just when everything seems perfect, Claire’s ex-husband shows up to throw her life into a tailspin. It’s a quick read, made more enjoyable due to Claire’s character development.
