OMG!!!! WHAT A READ! I have yet another top read of 2018 and an all-time favorite! L.B. Dunbar has proven that love can be just as passionate and sexy in your 40’s as it is in your 20’s and 30’s.

Edie has traveled to Hawaii with her daughter, Masie, 18, and son, Caleb, 22, as a new beginning. She is trying to figure out who she is after surviving breast cancer and a divorce. A chance meeting at a swimming pool will forever change her and make her believe in happy endings again!

Tommy is the band manager for his niece’s husband. He is on the road constantly and always busy with the guys in the band. He has no time or desire for a romance. That all changes when he lays eyes on Edie. He will reconsider everything he thought he knew about romance!

The chemistry between these two is HOT, HOT, HOT!!!! Edie and Tommy showed me that earth-shattering passion isn’t just for those in their 20’s. These two will definitely cause your temperature to rise.

Oh Lord, Tommy!!! He just proves that a man can be sexy at any age.

“He wasn’t a young man, but all male. There was a certain sexiness about an older man, one no longer lean with a six pack, but firm, with a rounded chest and tight abdominal muscles.”

It wasn’t just his sex appeal that grabbed ahold of my heart…nope…he had a whole lot of good stuff going on inside of him. Edie was interested in knowing all of him. She knew he was strong and had a good heart. He did everything for his niece, Ivy, and the band.

“He had a strong heart to keep theirs happy. He did everything for the band, everything for Ivy. Tommy Carrigan had a solid, outer shell, but I wanted to know more about what lay underneath.”

Edie has to be one of my all-time favorite female heroines. Yes, I said heroine. She is indeed a warrior, and she not only fought for her life but also fought to find herself again. She was a wife and a mother. She never envisioned spending her time after Masie leaves for college alone. She didn’t want to be alone; she wanted someone to tell her things would be alright when she wasn’t sure. She wanted someone to love her. She deserved it, and Tommy was lucky to find someone who loved him for who he was as a person, not anyone else.

As with all of Dunbar’s books, it isn’t just the steam or sexiness that makes up the story but the emotions and the characters’ relationships with one another. I loved the relationship Edie was able to have with the boys in the band, even Gage, but most especially with Ivy. Their bond was so special. She understood what Ivy was experiencing as a mother. She understood that many times our identities as mothers overshadows everything else, and before we know it, we sometimes lose our own as we help our children find theirs.
Both Edie and Tommy wanted to be seen as just as themselves. That is what drew them to each other. They didn’t see the “other stuff,” just each other.

“I understood his need to be seen for him—a man. It reminded me of me. I didn’t want to be viewed as a divorcee, or a mother of two, or a breast cancer survivor. I just wanted to be recognized as an independent woman—one who wanted to be loved and was willing to give love in return.”

Dunbar does have some little gems hidden within the pages of the book. There are some questions about Tommy’s past and what secrets he may be hiding. Plus, the way she describes Hawaii makes me want to pack my clothes and hop on a plane right now!!!!! And, if you have read her previous books, she gives us a tiny glimpse of one of my favorite places and one of my favorite couples.

Dunbar has proven time and time again what an amazing talent she is. She can write paranormal, contemporary, and dark romance. She can take the legendary Knights of the Round Table and make them into modern rock gods. Now, she has completely turned the genre of steamy, contemporary romance and turned it on its head making it all her own!!!!!
