Dating A Saint - Never Too Late #3 (Jim and Lauren)

After divorcing her cheating ex-husband years ago, 42 yr old Lauren McCarthy is pleased with herself for finding ways to be happy that don't involve dating and men. Who needs that kind of headache or heartache anyway? Her best friends call her a saint for choosing a celibate life over a man in her bed, but Lauren considers it just self-preservation.

Kirstin's Review:

Dating A Saint by Donna McDonald, book 3 in the Never Too Late series.

Lauren is a curvy 42 year old socialite known for her giving heart and amazing fund raising capabilities. Unfortunately her cheating slime of an ex-husband has had her practically swearing off men for the past seven years. That is until she met James Gallagher.

Jim is a big hunky older guy with an undeserved reputation as a cheating husband even though nobody has seen his wife in years. Meanwhile his attract...more
In a sea of romance novels that appear to be aiming to shock the pants off me, McDonald's characters are a welcome buoy. She has what many lack -- the ability to write well crafted characters, plausible (& intelligent) conflicts, and full story arcs (no absentee falling actions & 2-page resolutions) with the bonus of steamy scenes. I have definitely found a favorite with her Never too Late series.

With Dating a Saint, we focus on Lauren & Jim. These two are unquestionably the least i...more

Donna is a saint, or so everyone thought. All she needs is the correct person to bring it out, and that is Jim. Yes, this is a light chick lit story but it is still enjoyable with plausable characters.
I knew from the previous book Dating Dr. Notorious Never Too Late Series that Laura and Jim had a thing for each other, so it was gr8 to read about them acting on their emotions in this book. The story line about Jim and his wife really very touching and really humanized this story. I just wish Jim would have gotten over his moral dilemma sooner so him and Lauren could have gotten together quicker, but it all worked out in the end. I wouldnt mind reading more about these two as they star their f...more
Reading about love later in life doesn't get better than this series! Don't pass up any of these books!
Lauren is really a saint, I have been so mad at Jim almost for whole book, but I liked very much this story, so complex, romantic, intense without losing the verve, the brio and the fun that is characteristic of this series .
Lauren and Jim's story was romantic in every way. Jim was more of a saint than Lauren. Finding out the reason Jim was still married and how he handled things is definitely not the way men handle things. The cat and mouse game was getting kind of old, but they finally sealed the deal. I am excited to read Jenna and Seth's story next. I like her books and how she doesn't let the story end with the first book. Jenna and Seth's story was introduced in the first book. Surprised they were the last boo...more
Really liked the story line from this author. It was a good read and would definitely recommend this author with this series.
Another fun story in the Never too late series! I loved the fact that the Lauren is not your average girl next door, but a very tall and capable woman! In life so many times, the stereotypes of what a woman is supposed to look like, makes a lot of women out there who do not fit into that mould feel like they are not worth it! Well, Donna McDonald has a way to make us see, that it takes all kinds of women to make the world interesting!

To watch Miss Lauren come out of her shell was awesome!! Jim, what can I say about Jim except that he is so yummy! I'm having a heard time figuring out what couple I like the most and I love the friendship that these three amazing have.
This story is about a woman who finally becomes completely who she is meant to be and the man who decides that he deserves to love her. Their challenge is not the typical romance issue which made this book more rewarding for me.

I love these book and am so sad there is only one more left in the series for me to read.

This series will have you in stiches, tears and leave you with a smile on your face.
I absolutely love this series - strong more mature independent women. I love all of Donna McDonald's books. Laughs and loves, what more do you want

All I can say is WoW --- What Jim did and what he went through for so long he finally was able to find happiness and love with Lauren
