Again, I wrote this one, so of course I like it, but it's always been one of my favorites! During the writing of this book, I shed every inhibition I might've had as a writer. This is a totally new and revised version of that original, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did spending time with Leslie and Robin!
Leslie Wilkes is turning 50. She has been divorced for many years to a man who took off before his son was even born. So as a single mother she has raised her son, Gabe, who is now a college student. Leslie's friends from work are going to dinner with her to help celebrate her big '50' birthday. The restaurant was busy so it took a while to get seated. Once they were seated Leslie looked around and spotted a very good looking 'boy' at the bar. She quieted called the waitress over and told her to find out what the 'boy' was drinking and give him one on her. But, the waitress was not to tell him. She mentioned to the waitress that it was her birthday and that was her way of celebrating.Robin Thatcher was the boy at the bar. He was there with his brother having a drink. He had noticed a great looking woman at a table across from him. He tried not to be obvious but his eyes kept moving over to her table. He had always loved older woman and this one was a knockout. When the waitress asked him what he was drinking and said that a lady wanted to buy him a drink, he of course wanted to know who. All the waitress would tell him was that it was the woman's birthday and she wanted to share it with him by buying him a drink. Robin hoped it was the gorgeous woman across from him. A bit later he drove his brother home and came right back to the restaurant to see if the lady was still there. He ended up parking his truck next to her car and waited while she and her friend did a bit of shopping at the book store. When she came out he was able to talk her into following him to his house so they could spend some time together. This is where this story takes off. (no spoilers from me!) Robin and Leslie are great characters. Robin is so cute and loving even though he had such a horrible childhood. His older brother is still abusing him and doesn't even realize it. Leslie has had a hard life and has lost everyone in her family. They are so good together even though there are so many years difference between them. I loved every minute of this book. Well written with a great story line.
can't wait to see more in this series.
