Who does that sexy silver fox think he is, sitting in her spot in the Busy Bean Cafe?

Over forty, with zero filter, Rita Kaplan loves her coffee, her hiking boots, and her law practice. Life hasn’t always been carefree, though, and Rita’s past holds the scars of poor decisions after deep loss. She survived, though, and no smirky silver fox is going to get in the way of her happiness. Even if he knows how to use his drill, screwdriver, and every other tool in his box to tempt her . . .

Former arson investigator Jake Drummond could add ex-con to his resume if he had one. Instead, he’s serving the final year of his sentence on probation. This involves mandatory AA meetings, hosted by a feisty local attorney, and working on a renovation project, supervised by the same annoyingly attractive whirlwind, who also believes she owns the exclusive rights to a comfy couch in his new favorite coffee shop. Soon she’s everywhere, including the few places she shouldn’t be–like in his bed and in his heart. 

Can opposites lower their walls and construct something everlasting . . . or will their connected past lead to demolition for two hearts in need of a rebuild?

My Review...

Busy Bean Cafe

Ms. Dunbar is by far one of my favorite authors, the original queen of over 40 romance. Now she takes it up another notch with this newest story set in Sarina Bowen’s True North.

This is the story of Rita and Jake. This story is full of heart, heat, and oh my me, the surprises and how fate plays into this story are breathtaking!

Rita is finally finding a new normal for herself, after tragedies, she has found her footing in her work and volunteer duties. She feels she is at the age where true love doesn’t happen twice and she will be alone. But boy am I glad she is proved wrong.

Oh my me, Jake is the ultimate stud, the handsome, flirty, and smoking hot hero. He too has been dealing with tragedies of his own and he is biding his time until he is finally free.

The sparks between Rita and Jake are blazing hot, their chemistry is on fire and the smexy times between these two make a vintage gal like myself have hope for the future! (Hee hee)

I am always grateful and admired the way that Ms. Dunbar can write her older characters with just as much heat and love as anyone else. It makes a gal feel like even though I am over 40, we can still be wild, crazy, and love hard!

Absolutely stellar story and I hope you all read this!
