Book One in the Men of the Misfit Inn series!
Release Date: January 8, 2021
SYNOPSIS: Four years ago, firefighter Caleb Romero saved a child and met the woman of his dreams. But trauma killed the timing, so he’s contented himself with being the friend she needed as she navigated sudden parenthood. Four years ago, Emerson Aldridge became a mom in the worst possible way. Without qualm, she abandoned her own dreams to shepherd her teenage daughter through their shared grief. Her number one priority has been to raise Fiona the way her best friend would have wanted. Now Fi’s headed off to college and Emerson has no idea how to feel about her suddenly empty nest. She barely even remembers life before motherhood, but Caleb’s right next door to give her a reminder—along with a toe-curling kiss that catapults them past friends and into something more. The life she wanted before the accident is still within reach. He just has to convince her that their age difference means nothing.
Piece of cake. Right?
Review: Well this was adorable! I picked this up, because I love seeing how authors do the older woman in an age gap romance. Emerson and Caleb meet the night her best friend dies in a fire. Caleb ends up being the firefighter that saves her goddaughter. The actual romance doesn’t start until four years later when Fiona leaves to college. Caleb has been harboring a crush, but Emerson wasn’t aware because with him being younger, she didn’t think of him like that. She definitely has a bit of a hangup when it comes to him being 8 years younger. When she first find out about said crush it’s a little awkward, but super cute. Caleb is a great male lead! Even his relationship with Fiona is cute. If you want a fluffy read that’ll make you swoon, this one is for you.
