There is something so damn sexy about a younger man.
Dumped by her husband of thirteen years for the younger model, forty-year-old Rachel Michaels needs to jumpstart her life. After years of fitting into her husband’s rigid mould, she’s ready to reinvent herself, and a fling with a hot younger man is just what she needs. Her sexy landscape designer is the perfect man for the job.
Twenty-eight-year-old Mark Beaumont is fascinated by the woman in her sexual prime. She's assertive and fun, with a vulnerable core. After giving Rachel her first partner-induced orgasm, he knows he wants more than just a brief fling—he wants to help her explore everything she kept suppressed during her boring marriage.
But can he convince her that there is more between them than just great sex or will she let her fears stand in the way?
Rachel is forty and newly divorced. Her friends encourage her to live life anew. At the beginning of the story, she's looking for a landscape gardener and just happened to meet Mark who's the twenty-something son of a friend. After giving her a ride home to check out her yard, it's obvious there's a strong sexual attraction between the two of them and things heat up.
If you enjoy an older woman, younger man story, this one's for you. Both Rachel and Mark are fun characters to read about and they're very likeable too. You can feel their attraction from the first second they see one another. Sex scenes are hot and well placed.
I thought that after Mark completed the landscaping job at Rachel's, the two might go their separate ways, but I was hoping they wouldn't and was glad when I found out they were in love and wanted this thing to last. Of course the story has a black moment but I won't give it away.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It's a quick read for a steamy afternoon.
