3.5 Stars for Never Again
Not even a year after marrying the guy she’d thought was the love of her life, Cora Knowles is already requesting a divorce. To her recollection, philandering was not a part of her wedding vows, and she wasn’t about to stand by while ‘Sally from accounts’ rolled about on her Egyptian cotton sheets.
While trying to soothe her broken heart with copious amounts of cake and liqueur chocolates, her best friend, Olivia suggests that the best way to get over someone, is to get under someone else. Problems arise when the one Cora ‘gets under’ turns out to be the son of the Director of Prosecution—her boss. Worse still, he’s young. Younger than Cora originally thought, and younger than she’s comfortable with.
But, when the attraction is undeniable, Cora needs to decide whether she’ll turn her back on the enigmatic Brandon Sharp, or take a risk and follow her heart, even though she promised herself she’d never do that again…
~My Thoughts ~
A fun, flirty, sexier than hell story of a woman on the cusp of turning 30 and a man in his early 20’s.
For all of you age gap romance lovers, you’ll want to spend some time with Bran and his deliciously wicked ways.
I have to say though, this story is so much more than just an age gap romance. It delves deeper into the lives of the two main characters. A women whose has to face the harsh realities of the life she was living. A man who has to battle the demons of his past. Never Again brings to light so many of life’s obstacles in a very realistic fashion.
The surprise meeting. The intensity of the exploding passion and desire. The deviant and domineering sexual encounter. The walls that go up and the feelings of confusion, happiness, grief and pain follow.
A night unlike any other brings together two people both struggling in their own ways to achieve the life they both believe they want. A turn of events shatter those plans and temptation is there front and center, taunting and teasing both the heart and mind.
A bitter and deceptive ex-husband to be. A father in name only and a best friend whose own life turns upside down make Never Again a fun sexy as sin, story laced with laughter and tears. A story that entertains from beginning to end.
