If you'd asked me what love was two years ago, I probably would've said, 'It's this amazing feeling that obsesses and possesses you; it's what me and my husband currently have.' If you ask me that same question today, I'll say, 'Please get the hell out of my face.’' Claire Gracen's life is picture perfect. Her career as a marketing director is on the brink of being legendary, and her marriage to her high school sweetheart has never been stronger. No, wait. It has. It used to be amazing and fulfilling, but one day Claire realizes that she's been living a lie and her best friend and husband have committed the ultimate betrayal. Broken and depressed, Claire is in need of something new—new city, new job, new friends. When she happens to attract the interest of the sexiest man she's ever met, a man significantly younger than her, she immediately turns him down—only to later discover that this man is Jonathan Statham, self-made billionaire and CEO of Statham Industries. Her boss. Jonathan Statham is unlike any man she's met before. He's used to getting whatever he wants—whenever he wants, and he isn't about to take no for an answer. Sexy, unpredictable, and charmingly clever, Mid Life Love is a story that will captivate you, entertain you, and force you to fall deeply in love with the characters.

WOWSY!!! WOW! WOW! This book was absolutely AMAZINGLY Perfect!!!! This has to be one of the best books this year! Every. Single. Part. of this book was so freaking unbelievable. Is it possible to feel each and every emotion possible? HELL YES! That is what this book has done to me....One minute I am laughing, irritated, happy in love, quivering from all the hot sex and then just straight up loving every bit of each emotion. Yes, I was totally captivated, entertained and completely fell in love. Whitney G. just blew me out of the water. The author spent so much time creating and building this AMAZING Story. And the story is so much better since it is told in both Claire and Jonathan's POV. But not only told in each others POV, the author also introduces us to Claire and Jonathans' life prior to the beginning of their love story. We get to understand their stories and how they have become the people they are now.

"I was turning forty in two weeks and I was suffering from all the symptoms of a mid-life crisis!" (Claire)
Her best friend drags her to a Middle Age New Years Eve Mingle Party.....How fun does that sound? Well, Claire hated the idea but went along for her friends sake......This is where YOUNG SEXY ALPHA MALE Jonathan spots her while he is at the same hotel attending a meeting. Claire is unaware that Jonathan has noticed her and while he tries to approach several times he is pulled away for business reasons. Then SEXY Jonathan runs into her in the store days later........When helping Claire pick up her mess she has made in the grocery store, he tries to make small conversation and ask her out. She totally is caught off guard because one he is so much younger than her and two it just can't be real. Why would a young sexy man want to go out with her? Jonathan gives her his card and asked to her to call if she is ever interested. Of course days later, Claire still has not called and still contemplating if she should. Her friends continually encouraged her to replace her vibrator friends with the real thing..."get out and enjoy life"...especially with a HOT STUD!
"Do you always use your sick days to stay at home and play with yourself?" (Jonathan)
The next day the CEO of her company, who rarely has presence in the San Francisco office, decides to attend a directors meeting. While Claire sits in her normal chair in the back of the conference room, while being announced as Jonathan Statham, CEO walks in, she is listening to all the women whispering quietly about how good looking and HOT Jonathan is.....He finally comes through the door. OH...MY...GOD! The guy from the grocery store. When Jonathan scans the room, their eyes connect.....
"Are you normally this cocky? Surely you can accept the fact that I'm just not attracted to boys. Going out with you would make my life more complicated than I need it to be. You clearly can't handle rejection, probably lack of emotional maturity, and you are definitely more compatible with some vapid twenty year old who still doesn't know the difference between emotions and-" (Claire)
This was an intense sexy love story of two people trying to figure out how to not fall in love....but completely FAIL at it.....So many funny moments, tender moments, torturing moments and LOTS OF SEXY moments.
"I'd never been kissed like he was kissing me; it felt like I was having sex - with my mouth." (Claire)
This is a "MUST READ"!
Whitney, continue the unbelievable good work and I hope to read more from you!
