4.5 Stars. This was not what I expected at all and as someone who has read thousands of books, it's not an easy task to be surprised. Mac is a young woman in love with an older man and challenged by his two sons. I don't want to delve too much into the plot because it would taint the experience. The story edges some very fine lines and even tentatively crosses over them but at that point, the characters were developed so well that I wasn't exactly turned off to what was starting to happen. Witho ...more

3.5 stars

This book really took a whole 'nother direction than what I expected. In the beginning when I realized this, I didn't know if I would end up liking it or not. However, it did keep me interested until the end, and there was no moment that I wanted to put it down. However, in my opinion a lot of information was missing. Especially in how Mac and Carter's relationship actually developed. Their love didn't feel real because of this. So I did

This was just wow. I voluntarily accepted an advanced reader copy of this book.

This story started out pretty rough. Mac is 25 years old and dating Carter a man almost twice her age. He has two teenage sons, Hunter who is 17 and Carey who is 15. When they first meet her they dislike her BUT Hunter secretly thought she was hot. They were rude to her especially Carey until one night things shifted and they started respecting her. They both realized that Mac cared more about them than their own pare

I don't now what I expected but this was not in my sight at all lol..mostly because I went in blind, as I mostly do..crazy I know, but I am so happy I did that..the story took me on an emotional journey..not only for Mac's past, the relationship between Mac and Carter, but for the teenagers as well.
As I said, quite interesting and completely unexpected..waiting fo more ;)

I believe that this is the first book that I've read by Annie Stone, (I promise I'm not too challenged, just read a ton of books like a beast), and I did enjoy it, not to mention I wouldn't have guessed the journey I was taken on from the blurb. In no way is that bad, just wanted to state it for the record, as it was a good surprise. In a nutshell, Mackenzie is 25 years old when she meets, and falls for the much older Carter. Even as age is just a number (that's my story and I'm sticking with it ...more

Phewww boy! I thought we were going to have a Mrs. Robinson moment, nearly one but she held it together. I kept turning the pages. I have never read a story like this. I was captivated.

This review is based on the ARC provided by the author and/or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

Holy Hotness What A Story!!!

Every once in awhile, I'll get a story that I can't just simply read...I Devour It!! This is one of those stories!! I felt that it started as a Hate Story, moved onto a Love Story, then became a story about sacrifice and growing up! I Loved Everything About It!!

Mackenzie had a hard life until she met and fell in love with Carter. He was everything she was looking for in a man. He was kind, sensitive but, he was older than her and had 2 teenage sons. She had worked ver

Wow!! Annie Stone is a new-to-me author and she hooks you right from the beginning!

I wasn't expecting this AT. ALL!

You just need to read this to understand what I'm saying! Don't let the synopsis or blurb scare you away. Get. This. Book.

I'm a contemporary romance writer, who likes her men tattooed, her women independent and her coffee strong.

My stories are all about love, but some are of the romantic kind, some of the sad kind and others of the very steamy kind. So if you can stand drama, foul language and some sex, you came to the right place.

Love, Annie
