We witness their story unfolding with her working through many emotions, as well as his attentiveness and patience while they deal with their relationship and those that are not pleased that they are dating.

    This is a warm and wonderful love story. YOU MAKE ME FEEL BRAND NEW by CHICKI BROWN is about a divorced woman with two grown-up children. The title of the story attracted me to buy and read it.I happen to love the song. The lyrics are positive and beautiful. After Jan's divorce, she meets Mac. Mac is handsome, kind and just plain lovable. However, the fly in the buttermilk is Mac's age. Mac is eleven years younger than Jan. Jan is forty seven years old.I suppose this type of romance is still called a May/September romance. One thing I know after reading Chicki Brown's story is that when a man is younger than the woman no matter how much they love one another people will have an opinion about whether the older woman is robbing the cradle. The woman seems to suffer the most in this type of relationship. Jan always brought the issue of age up to Mac when they were alone. Then, the most painful time is when Mac's mother, Ruth brings up the fact that she thinks her son will lose the best years of his life with this "old" woman. Of course, the girls have different opinions too. One daughter is still stuck in time thinking about whether her mother should have divorced her father, Robert.The question becomes will the the romance make it through the storm? I think Mac's open and nurturing and preservering love kept the romance alive and well. In the end it doesn't matter what people say about you and the one you love. It's how much you love that person. Will you love them through thick and thin? The opinions of other people don't count. This is an easy going romance with love making sweet and gentle, but this story is also filled with the tough issues that must be faced during the romance. It's not a walk down the garden path unless real, true, binding love is in the hands of the two lovers. They must carry that love as closely as the rings on their fingers.

    "Rekindling the Passion of Love"This is a very refreshing novelette by one of my favorite authors, Chicki Brown. She writes simply with understanding and compassion. In this story Jan Davis is divorced for a year after being married for 25 years to a man who lacked love and romance. The marriage ended slowly and painfully. She had worked as an accountant, but her one passion she loved doing was cooking. So she starts a personal chef business which grows successfully to where she can quit her accounting job. Her two daughters Bobbi and Val are living elsewhere, the youngest, Val, still in college. Jan is preparing food for a party that Mac Sinclair, a sports manager, is holding the next evening for many of his clients and some hopeful clients. He sits in the kitchen watching her prepare meals and chatting with Jan. When she's about ready to leave, Mac asks her if she'd like to attend the party the next evening. She declined, saying she never mixed business with pleasure. After spending the next early evening having dinner with her female friends, she tells them about her invitation to attend the party as Mac's date. Why not? They talk her into it and she calls Mac to see if she's still invited. Oh, yes, he was hoping she'd decide to attend. She feels somewhat awkward because Mac is 35 years old, while she is 11 years older. But Mac doesn't see her age, only her beauty, sweetness, and maturity. How will her daughters see this relationship? What about his family? Is she denying him the opportunity to become a father? I love this warm and tender story. It brightened my day and I could not take a break from reading it. The writing quality is excellent, characters are captivating and unique. It's definitely a heartwarming story you'll want to read to lift your spirits.

    I read You Make Me Feel Brand New for a book club discussion, and all I can say is . . . . . WOW! I could definitely identify with the characters, because I've been in a similar situation, an older woman dating a younger man. What I enjoyed most about the book, is that is it well-written, easy to follow, and the perfect size read for a quick fix, while you're waiting at an appointment, or just have a few "me" minutes all to yourself! While I did enjoy the story, I do wish that it was a bit longer; I would have loved a bit more background and depth on the characters. I would definitely recommend this book to others; if you like a short, enjoyable read, I suggest that you check out You Make Me Feel Brand New.Good job Chicki Brown! *walking around singing You Make Me Feel Brand New all morning!*

    Wow. This was such a beautiful book. i really loved it. On the surface, this is a well written and engaging story about a May/December romance between a heterosexual African-American couple. But really it is so much more. It really speaks to how difficult is can be for people to believe in themselves and their self-worth and to love themselves. I am so glad I found this awesome author through this free ebook and I can't wait to read more of her books. I highly recommend this book.

    This book is about a woman who decides to live again after her disasterous marriage. I'm not a fan of 'cougar relationships' or novellas but this is an isnpirational book that provides hope for true love no matter the age difference.
