Alexis and Casey have more obstacles than just their age. She is a notorious former model with a very public and checkered dating history, and Casey is a retired Marine dealing with both career ending injury, and the loss of his wife. Add to the mix the fact that her daughter is dating Casey's nephew and would never approve, and we have the ingredients for a messy relationship.
I enjoyed this book, because the characters weren't stereotypical,very well fleshed out, realistic, and flat out funny. It's wonderful to see older characters fall in love, deal with romance angst and be the sexual beings that they are. It was great to see a woman with greater financial stability and the man strong enough to deal with it.
I devoured this book, and quickly purchased the sequel. I would say this story rivals and is superior to many books I've read that cost much more. Skip your low fat mocha grande, downgrade to a smaller size and spend the rest on this book.
