My accidental solo vacation takes a turn for the less depressing after a drink that leads to a date with a brawny, bedroom-eyed firefighter. I’m 42, divorced, with two daughters at home. I thought romance was in my rear-view mirror until the mysteriously intense Leo makes me feel like I’m the only woman in the Florida Keys.
I know better than to get attached. But between midnight kisses and dirty talk under starry skies, our connection feels so real. So right.
I can’t give up my entire life for a fling. Not even for a man who reminds me I’m not defined by a failed marriage and a carpool calendar. And especially not one who has no interest in a family of his own, let alone a package deal like me.
We were supposed to be temporary. Just like everything else in my life. So why can’t I get Kristina out of my head? I’m the master of no strings, no attachments. But our time together haunts me after she leaves.
I’m not cut out to make a life with a woman. A woman with two kids? Forget it.
At least, that’s what I thought until fate brings us together again. It turns out the move I made to be closer to family brings me to Kristina’s hometown, and right in her path.
I still can’t explain the overpowering pull between us, but I’m sure of who she is.
And I’m not letting her go this time.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Starting Back by Stephanie Rose is a sweet romance.
It’s about a divorced woman, Kristina, who went on vacation and fell in love with a man who had no roots in his life. After meeting her Leo knew his life was gonna change. Although their romance hadn’t had so much drama the road to being a happy family together wasn’t quick.
This is such a good book. At first, it was light, flirty, and steamy. Then it became more realistic with all the everyday problems a single mom had. The end was pure perfection, I even cried a little bit. The main characters had great chemistry throughout the whole story. Both of them were incredible and quite relatable. But the star of the show was Emma, such a bright and entertaining character. My favorite moments were when Kristina blushed and lost her words.
I fell in love with this story from the beginning and I will rate it with 5 stars.
