When a hot career and a hot romance collide in this sensuous story, Brooke Felsen’s life goes up in flames and her visions of corporate glory turn to ashes. She’s worked her gorgeous tush off in a Madison Avenue advertising agency 24/7, winning fame, fortune, and the steamy passion of her sexy, single boss. Until he suddenly dumps her — and her carefully constructed existence crumbles like day old bread.
Desperate to put her life back together like Humpty Dumpty, Brooke turns to her girlfriends at The Monday Night Dinner Club, all pug owners, and to her grandmother, her “rock” since her hippie parents’ sudden death. Savvy, stylish, wise and witty at 70 plus, Nan introduces her to Pres Carpenter, the hand-some, hunky dog-walker for her pugs, who’s got the hots for Brooke. Is he just a struggling writer, eager to earn extra money? Or an unlikely “catch,” a real life Prince Charming, hiding his own heartbreak and family secrets. Struck by their sizzling chemistry, Brooke can’t ignore the melting desire she feels for Pres, the very opposite of everything she ever thought she wanted! And she’s surprised and delighted by Nan’s friends, smart, lovable, laugh-out-loud seniors, who help her rebuild her life beyond her wildest dreams.
4 1/2 starsI’m not going to tell you about the book…(that’s what the synopsis is for) I will however, tell you what I thought and felt as I read it.This was another good story…not as good as number 1 but still a great book. The story line was good. Not sure why, but this book seemed to be written a little differently than 1 and 2. Brooke seemed to cry every other chapter. I didn’t expect her to be so emotional. But, the dialogue flowed well and overall it was a good read. I didn’t get my “normal” heart twinges as I call them when emotional conflict erupted (which was a lot if you go by Brooke’s tears)
I liked Pres. He wasn’t a hot alpha male, but a down to earth guy who turned his back on his families fortune and struck out on his own.
This is a multi pov book but could have used a lot more of Pres’s (esp. when he is gone to Cal). Can not wait to read book 4 – Miranda’s story. All in all this continues to be a great series as long as the other books are as well written as the first one.
You will not go wrong by reading this book.
