Violet is a single woman raising her teenage daughter. She thinks she is too old for a man like Stuart and is surprised when he shows any interest in her. Stuart is several years younger than Violet but the more she tries to pull away the more he pursues her.
The beginning of the story leaves you wanting to know more. By the end of the first chapter, I could not wait to finish the book. The author did a good job of drawing the reader in to her world. The world that Ms. Alleman created is very realistic. The pace of the story was a bit slow in the beginning and picked up steam as the story went along.
The main characters and the secondary characters were fascinating and interesting. I enjoyed how the age difference between Violet and Stuart played into the story. The point of view stayed with Violet all the way through the story. It gives up a glimpse into Violet and what happens when we let others opinions play a big part of our life. The main conflict in the story was Violet falling in love with Stuart and letting the age difference play a bigger part than it needed to be. The characters fit the story line perfectly. The conflict level was perfect and any more conflict would have clouded the main conflict of this story. The dialogue between the characters was genuine and distinctive. The characters voice matched not only the setting but fit their overall personality. The ending was a bit predictable but the author takes the reader on a wonderful journey. I hope we get to see these characters again in the future.
He reminds me of the men who grace the walls of stores where my daughter shops. Men with rippling abs and sinewy ropes of muscles. Men intended for younger women.
I never expected him to notice me. Imagine my surprise when he cornered me in the locker room, pressed his incredible body against mine, and forced me to acknowledge a desire more powerful than anything I’d experienced before.
Now that he has introduced me to the pleasures of being dominated, he wants to possess me completely. But how can I risk my heart, when I know his affection will never last?
