Review by Laura
I received a copy of this book from the author for a honest review. Caroline met her husband David at a young age. He was 11 years older than her. He dazzled her in his white navy uniform and cool sports car. Her mother thought he was a good catch for her. Caroline’s relationship with her mother was strained at times, so when David proposed to her she felt it was a good chance to get away from her mother. Being married to a medical ofﬁcer in the navy, she moved around quite a bit. Two years after they were married, David was transferred to Naval Medical Center in San Diego. There she met 8 year old Sebastian. He was the son of David’s new CO. Although she didn’t get along with Sebastian’s mom Estelle, Caroline happily spent time with Sebastian. They ended up moving away but Sebastian never forgot Caroline. Fast forward to the present. Caroline ﬁnds herself back in San Diego. Sebastian is 17 and has grown into a nice young man. She couldn’t help but notice his good looks and well deﬁned body. He makes his feelings clear and even though they both know it’s wrong they begin an affair. Sebastian makes her feel alive and for the ﬁrst time in her life she knows what love is supposed to feel like.
Caroline must make a choice, will she choose David or Sebastian?!!
This story was interesting. This subject is taboo and the author did a good job of writing the story without it being trashy. I felt Caroline’s struggle between her desire for Sebastian and her conscious about doing the right thing. I did enjoy reading this book although it may not be for everyone given the subject. That being said I think this is a good guilty pleasure book. I give this 4 books!
I started writing contemporary romance two years ago. Before that, I didn’t think I could write a sex scene. Turns out I can!
My lucky number is 13 because I was born on the 13th and live near a haunted castle by the ocean. My number one past-time is watching hot surfers get changed into (and out of) their wetsuits.
My husband doesn’t read my books. My mother does.
Writing is my love, my hobby, my total addiction. All my characters are important to me and whisper their stories, even when I’ve finished writing their books. That’s why you’ll often find bonus chapters/out-takes from various books, because those voices just won’t be quiet.
