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 and 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.
Claire Gracen no longer believes in fairy tales. She thought she had everything she ever wanted – a fabulous husband, two beautiful twin daughters and great friends. Until her husband commits the ultimate betrayal and forces her to rethink her entire life. She decides what she needs is a fresh start. She packs up the remains of her dignity and moves to San Francisco. She takes a job at the up and coming Statham Industries. She never imagines that the incredibly sexy CEO will take over not only her life, but her heart as well.
“I wanted to do the whole Eat, Pray, Love thing— you know, travel the world and try to find myself while tasting new foods, soaking up new cultures, and having reckless sex with a young, hot Brazilian— but I knew that was completely unrealistic: I was in serious debt, I was terrified of planes, and too much time without my daughters would’ve driven me insane.”
“He was getting to me and I couldn’t deny it anymore. I thought about him all the time. My heart did flips whenever I saw him at work, and I looked forward to hearing his sexy voice over the phone at night. This is not how this was supposed to go…”
Mid-Life Love is written from alternating points of view (which I always love!) and has me convinced that I want my own membership in the Cougar Club. Be sure to watch out for Whitney’s next installment – Mid-Life Love – At Last – because you will not want to miss it!
