I am not giving this book three stars because I didn't like it. I truly enjoyed it and, as my first read by Day, that keeps it from being a two.

The premise of the story is easy to identify with, especially being a forty year old divorcee. It's also right in line with the age of the "cougar". The book has everything - friendship, lunacy, romance and hot erotic sex. Gwen is a woman who needs to be taken out of her comfort zone to learn it's okay to lose control every now and again. Returning to h...more
I really enjoyed this book. This is my 2nd time reading it, and I remembered trying to imagine what Ransom looked like with that gorgeous long hair and body, and I felt myself imagining this again this time around. Gwen was your typical soon to be frigid divorcee, but her chance meeting with Ransom (14yrs her senior) really opened herself up to a whole new world intimately. The drama with Adam at times was a little over the top, and I could have probably done without it, but all of the Gwen/Rans...more

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly. – proverb

When "Lessons From A Younger Lover" opens, the world as Gwen Smith knew it has fallen apart. Little does she know that a whole new world is about to open for her after she literally bumps into a life-changing force outside of Kristy’s coffee shop – in the form of 26 year-old Ransom Blake. They both feel the sparks of interest. The rocky start continues when Gwen later tells Ransom off for bothering her on her j...more
I truly liked this story. Gwen is a 40 yrs old woman whose husband recently divorced her to be with a younger woman. Gwen moves back home to help her mother is suffering from dementia. In the process of settling in, she literally runs into Ransom.
Ransom is a 26 yrs old single father, who also happens to be the younger half brother of old classmate Adam Johnson (who also happens be the principal at the school she teaches at). It's instant attraction, between Gwen and Ransom, but Gwen wants no par...more

I can honestly say that in the beginning i did not think i was going to like this book as much as i did. I'm not too sure what it was about this book that made me like it so much because in all actuality it is your typical cliche romance story. This book kept me smiling. What i liked most about this book was the flow of it. The author didnt spend too much time straying way from the main characters which was a good thing because sometimes authors have a tendency to over do it. I loved the way the...more

Drama, Romance, Mischief

Joe, Adam, Ransom. . . could one woman really have three men to choose from? One shows he is not trust worthy. One is slimy and self-absorbed. One is too young, but then again age is only a number. One heart and soul can be infinitely older. Gwen goes through it all.

Gwen got herself a lot more than a crash course in the lessons of lust. She got herself in on the lesson of a lifetime. Ransom is a very eager teacher and has more lessons to teach the beautiful woman he liter...more
What a waste, so much of this story was really sweet, romantic, and well-written, then it would deteriorate into the trashy. It was like this book had a dual personality disorder and the author could not make up her mind what she wanted it to be--a sweet, sexy romance or cheesy, trite erotica. At some places she went for quality and other places soiled the quality with sleaze. It would have been so much better if the author had gotten over her identity conflict and decided if she wanted to be cl...more

Very good book all women needs a Ransom.

I got this story back in September 2010 for free and am just getting around to reading it. I was pleasantly surprised and truly enjoyed the story. I really enjoyed how Ransom respected Gwen's wishes to remain faithful until her divorce was final. The lessons he taught her were HOT!

The scheming by Adam, Carol, Joanne, and Brea was ok to read because I knew they would not get away with it. I'm happy with the HEA.

I'm going to have to try what Ranson and Gwen did with that champagne glass. I'd drink...more

Overall, a good read. I enjoyed getting to know the characters, but there were sections where the writing felt kinda trashy or juvenile. I realize people relax when not at work, but there are times where I questioned Gwen's education. I also wish I had seen a little more of how she came out of her insecurity.
This was so cheesy but dang I really liked it lol. I mean, it was full of small time drama and the love scenes were okay, I just cannot get into a make character with hair down to his waist, I'm sorry. Ghetto Fabio was not working for me. But I really liked the drama aspect, it was fun to read.
Lessons From A Younger Lover by Zuri Day was a good book! I thoroughly enjoyed taking my time reading it. I expected less of this book - less of a story, more of an erotic read, but was very pleasantly surprised that the story-line fit right in with the 'erotic read'. Good for a 'light' read.

This was easy reading. The characters seemed a bit stereotypical of the genre and I would have like more to be made of the difficulties in the relationship between older woman/younger man. Missed opportunity by the Author.
I cannot say enough about this book. I loved it from beginning to the end!!! It took me through a rollercoaster of emotions, from breathless to touched to steaming angry. I read it in one day.
The dialogue and slang used was annoying and the characterization was over the top. It could have been a great story line if written by a better author.

Zuri Day is a hopeful romantic. She believes in happy endings, half-full glasses and dreams coming true. That's why she's thrilled to be a contributing writer to this genre...one of her favorites!

Zuri doesn't remember exactly how old she was when she picked up her first romance novel, but she does remember it was love at first sight. "It was probably a Harlequin," she recalled during a recent inte...more
