4 Paying Attention to The Moments Stars * * * *
In our society we are aged obsessed...and one of the most long held practices in relationships is older man/younger woman. That has been the way and it can even be "accepted to the extreme" by society...Only recently has there been an article about the gulf of age between leading men and women in movies...

So where are you going with this, you may ask...

Well, in 3 Seconds by Bethany Lopez, she presents a love story of a woman of 35 starting and feel

5 Star Review By Rabia Tanveer for Readers’ Favorite

Bethany Lopez' 3 Seconds is a simple, yet delicious romance. If there is a romance that grips your heart, it is 3 Seconds. Bronagh is a thirty-five-year-old woman who is successful in her career, but did not have much luck in love. She is a

The read was decent and kept me entertained which is why I'm giving it 3.5 stars. I wasn't so excited that I swallowed the novel whole but I didn't have to force myself to get through the book, either. This is one of those "older, less experienced and confident women with a younger, gorgeous, and confident guy" type of reads. I like them because age truly shouldn't stop someone from forming a relationship with another person unless it is like a 16 year old boy and a 35 year old women, that is ...more

My Rating: 3.5 Coffee Cups

I enjoyed this book. I just wish there was more of it!! The family aspect was huge for me. I loved the dynamic between the brothers.

Bronough is a quintessential 30-something. She is focused on her career and she's done the heartbreak thing and is in no rush to get back into it. But at a concert she meets gorgeous, twenty-something lead singer Brendan. She may not want to jump into a relations
Heather / Obsessed With Myshelf
I devoured this story and would gladly come back for seconds. Brendan is a strong leading man whose youth and former manwhoring ways are no match when love strikes. Tall, scruffy, can cook AND sing?! Add in his complete focus on Bronagh and his skills with his tongue and uhhhh, yea. He’s everything I wanted and more.

Bronagh is a bit of an older heroine, but that doesn’t mean that she’s smarter. She’s trying to move on from her ex-husband. The man who berated her appearance, treated her like an u

This sexy older woman, younger man romance is the story of Brendan and Bronagh. Brendan is a musician at heart, but with an equal passion for cooking and is finishing up his last credits for his culinary degree. A one night stand with a fiery redhead he meets after one of his concerts turns into a bit of a dilemma when she turns out to be his cooking instructor. Bronagh teaches at the culinary school but also runs an Irish pub with her father. Having an affair with a student is definitely ...more

As a reader, and an older woman myself, I was drawn to this older woman/younger man theme and charmed from the first page to the last thanks to a sweet and sexy hero and strong-willed heroine. Though there's a bit of familiarity to the overall storyline it was a feeling of comfort that surrounded me and made this an immensely enjoyable read. It may be the sixth installment in the Time for Love series but stands strongly on its own due to the compelling and likable secondary characters, engaging ...more

This was my first Bethany Lopez book and I will definitely be going back to read the previous books in this series. I loved this story! The plot. The characters. The fact that it was an older woman and a younger guy! Woo hoo!

But let's start at the beginning. Brendan is in a band with his brothers and is about the take the stage. It's during his set when he sees Bronagh. She's with her friends and is having a good time and Brendan c

4 “She makes me feel like a man” stars!

Musician by night and cooking student by day meets an older, feisty, and independent red head. Bronagh and Brendan’s story intrigued me. And I wasn’t disappointed by this sexy, sweet, and quick read. Honestly, all I needed to see was “band” and I was sold on this story ;)

“I deserved this…I deserved a one-night stand with a hot-as-hell rock star.”

But, as the story progressed I became more engrossed i

3 Seconds is book #6 in one of my favorite series, and let me tell you, it just keeps getting better & better! This book is more proof as to why I’m a big fan of this author. Again we are given an amazing story with characters that are so real, you just want to wrap your arms around them and squeeze!

Ms. Lopez has made the hero in this book a VERY sexy one. He’s also very smart, very talented, and isn’t’ afraid to go after what he wants. Brendan sings in a band with his two brothers… he is al

I am in love with this series. Each book gets better and better and I love how we get insight to the characters we meet throughout the series.
Brendan is a 26 year old singer in a band and training to be a chef. He has never had a relationship before, ever! Along comes Bronagh – in the 3 seconds it took for their eyes to meet across the crowd he knew he was done for.
Bronagh is older that Brendan. She is 35 years old, been married and is a chef as well as owner of a pub with her dad.

Ms. Lopez has out done her self with her recent story "3 Seconds". She has given us another amazing story with real, relatable characters. One that will not only warm your heart, but keep you guessing throughout the whole journey.

Brendan is one third of his brotherhood trio. Aside from the band, he is currently at home finishing his last semester of culinary school. During a concert he looks down and sees a girl that we'll later know as Bronagh. He doesn't now anything about her except that he h

Brendan and his brothers were playing in there band when he saw her across the bar. In those 3 seconds his life is going to change.
Bronagh owns an Irish pub she decides to go out with her friends to see a band and when she she's him her life will also be changed.

I fell in love with the story immediately. Brandan and Bronagh are destined to be together even though they have their disagreements and don't always see eye to eye. It was good to see

I'm loving this series. The relationships are actually built on something. It's not your typical love at first sight. They are everyday people with every day issues. I loved Bronagh. These books are always witty and romantic.

Bronagh's one night stand rock her world and she doesn't want to forget it, but she sneaks out the next morning never looking back. After a failed marriage she is focused on her life managing a pub with her Dad, and taking over teaching a class. The last thing she expects is to see her one night stand as a student in that class. Brendan Rock Star/Chef has never wanted someone more than the girl that ran out on him. Even with their age difference he might be ready to settle down for this one. ...more

This book was just one of those really sweet, and, at times, hot books. I really enjoyed it and enjoyed both main characters, but what I really loved were the brothers and their relationships with each other. Even thought this book easily read as a stand alone I definitely want to read the books that came before this one and will continue to read the ones after.

A good enjoyable read. These two characters think they know what they want, but with the help of friends and family they realize what they truly want. Bronagh's one night stand soon walks back into her classroom. Brendan's younger age to Bronagh has her having doubts. Can Brendan show her he has what it takes to make it work? But there is one big hurdle to get over that may be the deal breaker for Bronagh.

3 Seconds is the sixth book in the Time for Love series by Bethany Lopez. I have loved this series starting with book 1 and I love how each book reaches out and keeps your attention from beginning to end. The storyline was solid and well thought out. The characters were fabulous and had great chemistry. Bethany did a fabulous job of keeping the secondary characters stories a huge part of this book. This being a standalone book with a happy ending just makes this book that much better.

I was lucky to receive an ARC from this author. I have loved all the previous books in the series but this one might be my favorite. Love how the characters from the other books make a small appearance. These two characters in the book work through life situations and realize their true love for one another.
