She can’t hit the snooze on her biological clock forever…
Love, career, kids—Brooklyn Monroe wants it all. Her beauty company? A triumph. Her love life? Total fail. At 42, that makes motherhood her top priority. With no man in her life, she’s prepared to fly solo, but her plan is derailed when a mailing list mishap turns Brooklyn into a someone-get-me-pregnant internet meme. Making her PR nightmare go away entails a soul-baring interview on national TV. And the guy asking the questions? Her all-too sexy ex.
Talk show host Alec Trakas is the king of bad timing. Case in point, his heartbreaking romance with Brooklyn. Alec was all about commitment but Brooklyn was launching her start-up, and forever wasn’t in the cards. Now a shot at his ultimate dream job depends on convincing Brooklyn to spill the secrets leading to her viral celebrity. It sets Alec’s star rising, but puts Brooklyn in a sea of flirty men. Fate has thrown them back together. Sparks are flying. But is the timing finally right? Because having it all might not be worth the risk of losing each other again.
Brooklyn has been successful in her career and now, with her biological clock ticking, she wants to become a mother; and she’s happy to do it alone. But when there’s a huge PR mistake and Brooklyn becomes the centre of memes and jokes, she ends up having to face her ex on TV. When sparks start flying will they rekindle their romance? And will Brooklyn get ‘it all’?
This was a lovely and heartwarming romance. It’s wonderful to read about people finding love over 40 and how a successful and strong character has been fantastic in her career, but realises she wants more. Brooklyn is a brilliant character, relatable and really likeable so you can’t help but route for her. Alec is also fab; both imperfect but you just want them end up together and happy.
The story covers some some big issues but in a sensitive way and it was lovely to read; especially because there are many women out there who will be able to relate.
The plot was really enjoyable and there were some proper laugh out loud moments! The writing is wonderful, flows well and is easy and enjoyable to read. So if you’re looking for a unique, fun but thought provoking contemporary romance/rom com with some wonderful, likeable characters then you should check this out. Recommended by me.
