Six years after her husband’s death, Regina Pace is still just going through the motions, her only pleasure a nightly glass (or three) of wine to dull the ache. Tonight is no exception - until a sensual outdoor encounter with her neighbor’s son, freshly home from college. He’s older, wiser, more devastatingly handsome than she remembered...more
I always love Ms. Carney's voice, and older woman/younger man stories in general, but I was a tad hesitant to read this because it was written in the first person (not my favourite...I've passed on many books for that reason alone). Ms. Carney executed the first person narrative perfectly. I was completely immersed in every moment of the story. I smiled, laughed, fanned myself at the hot parts, and almost cried a couple of tim ...more

She doesn't date much, comes home & does the same thing almost every night. Since the death of her husband, his memory haunted her
constantly and she just seemed to stuck in her life. Enter Josh. The young, hot & sexy next door neighbor, who just happens to be 15 years younger than her. I just loved how they "met"..voyeurism anyone? I felt a little na ...more
Okay, yes, this is an erotic love story featuring a cougar-style relationship (26 vs. 41), but OMG, it was a really gorgeous story. Regina is a 41 yo widow. Josh is a 26 yo grad student (on the verge of his PhD in physics) house-sitting for his parents for the summer in the house next door to Regina's. His initial contact with her was: him- by the pool masturbating in his backyard; her- standing on her deck watching, but...wait f ...more
Keeping Pace<.i> is a sublime tale of love between a young man of twenty-six, who invites the attentions of his dream woman next door, a lonely widow of forty-one by giving her a show to remember.
Gorgeous, descriptive, beautifully written, yet so achingly tender and poignant with a divine first encounter over a back fence that left me breathless. Wonderful characters portrayed in such vivid detail, that I couldn’t have put this ...more
B- Sexy older woman/younger man story. I would have liked to have seen more of them dealing with the conflict that the age difference meant - and it was significant. She's 41, he's 26. The epilogue glosses over a lot of the problems which was a bit unfortunate. I would rather the book had been a bit longer and those things been more fully fleshed out. Josh had been quite conflicted with what he was going to do with his doctorate, so I would have liked to have known what job he ended up ...more
She is very adamant through the story that she has no feelings for her boss because the one time they tried it, the chemistry was just awful. And yet, she won't tell Josh that, and just lets him believe that they were once lovers and only broke up because her boss got promoted. Then the boss starts coming onto h ...more
I thoroughly enjoyed this, my only disappointment was that it was such a quick read. Great writing - I'll look out eagerly ...more
I don't normally enjoy books written in the first person, but Dee really knocked it out of the park with this one.
A short read, this older woman/younger man romance is beautifully written with a wonderful attention to detail, a deep well of emotion, and enough eroticism to make you sit back and say "whoa...". Even the ending was spectacular with its traces of realism woven through it.
Dee began writing short stories in middle school, but did not attempt completion of a novel until almost ten years later—which despite good intentions was never finished. Almost ten additional years later, she challenged ...more
