The 411:

I got this as a Free Download and I am so happy I chose to read it out of my 4,000 Kindle Books waiting to be read. 

When I was younger, I only read horror but after having kids moved away from it. I had enough to worry about without thinking about the thing in the closet, the basement or under the bed. Slowly I am moving back into the genre and have to say this was a really good start! Although I am not a big fan of short stories because I always feel they are so rushed, these were perfect for reintroducing myself to horror and I am definitely looking for more from Todd Travis.

After several decades of looking for true love and never finding it, aging model and lingerie designer, Alexa Ranger, has finally given up the search. A couple years ago, she got tired of the game completely and just stopped dating. Now friends and family keep her mostly content, so it’s shocking at 50 yrs old to find herself suddenly wanting a sex life again. It’s even more shocking to be attracted to a much younger man this time. She definitely thinks medically retired Marine, Casey Carter is sexy, but can’t get passed their twelve year age difference to even consider a fling. Not that it matters anyway, anything resembling a normal dating relationship is totally out of the question because Casey is related to and living with her daughter’s boyfriend. The very last thing Alexa needs is yet another talk-show worthy drama in her already complicated life, no matter how amazing Casey’s kisses make her feel.

The 411:

Ohhh this is a sexy read! Casey Carter is the perfect sexy male character. He is young, hot and much younger than the strong female lead Alexa!

I loved this because at 47 I loved reading how 12 years younger Casey found Alexa hot and how he persuade her. 

Nice build up to their relationship and Alexa is not a weak, weepy female.
