    The older woman

    I liked this one. I took a bit of a chance on this book since I have never read anything written by Jessica Jayne and both of the narrators were new to me. It was a gamble that paid off. It is a rather quick read and I ended up listening to the bulk of it in a single day and found it to be very enjoyable. Stacey is a thirty-one year old divorced woman who has know Ren for years since she lives next to Ren's parents. Ren is a twenty-three year old recent college graduate who has his eye set on his neighbor. Ren has spent time during the past several summers helping Stacey out around her house and they have a pretty close friendship but Ren wants more. A lot more. Stacey has some issues with the fact that she is older than Ren and she considers his mother to be one of her friends. I liked Stacey and Ren and thought that they made a really nice couple. They know each other really well from the time before the start of this story and their personalities mesh really well. They have great chemistry together. There were times that Stacey wasn't sure she should pursue a relationship with Ren but there was never a question regarding whether she wanted him. It was nice to see her thought processes as she tried to figure things out. I loved how Ren knew what he wanted and was determined to make it happen. He stood up for their relationship and really was a good match for Stacey. I thought that Joe Arden and Samantha Cooke did a great job with this story. I usually listen to audiobooks at regular 1x speed and I did find that felt a little slow when Samantha Cooke was reading. Once I increased the speed to 1.25x speed, the reading felt a lot more natural to me. I thought that both narrators were able to bring a lot of emotion to the story and made some scenes more intense. I liked the voices that each narrator used for the characters in the story. I would not hesitate to listen to more of both of their work in the future. I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This was a nice quick listen that had a lot of feels and some heat. I thought that Ren and Stacey were great as a couple and I was excited to watch them figure out how to make things work. I look forward to reading more of Jessica Jayne's work in the future. I received a review copy of this audiobook from the author via Caffeinated Services.

    Age doesn't Matter

    Easy reading about a new graduate with love interest to the divorced women next door. Ren Haynes has waited years for an opportunity to experience true love. Stacey Williams is an author who is dealing with the betrayal of her husband. Will their attraction to each other be strong enough to overcome their age difference. "A copy of this book with no requirement for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion."

    Real Life in Fiction: Age Is Just a Number

    I truly believe one of the hardest things to rebuild in a person is their confidence. When a person experiences an event that rips through their confidence, it's a struggle to get it together again. It's even worse when you're on the outside watching them struggle because you're doing your best to help them past this hurdle and it doesn't seem to be working. At all. You could throw in the towel and walk away, give up because you don't know what else to do. Or you could hang in there because you know the struggle is worth what's coming. Ren could have just moved on, found someone else closer to his age, someone not so broken, and lived his happily ever after. But his heart's been set on Stacey for so long. His youthful crush evolved into love and she is his everything long before he made her his everything. Reinforcing Stacey's qualities, helping her see herself through her own eyes instead of her ex-husband's, reassuring her that she is all he'll ever want, need, desire, lust after, and love from now until forever was a task he was, surprisingly and amazingly, up to. This isn't just about sex. It isn't just about a cougar (if you want to call her that because, to be honest, eight years isn't that big of a difference to me but whatever) getting her groove back. It isn't about age. It isn't about social stigma and expectations. It's about Ren knowing what was right and pursuing it relentlessly, tearing down the walls of Stacey's self-made prison, and proving she was worth it. She was worthy of happiness, faithfulness, and love that wouldn't waver or fade. She was worth all of it and so much more. I love stories like this. In the contemporary romance world, these stories make my heart happy because this is real life in fiction. This is why authors write these kinds of stories because someone out there can relate, because stories like these are worth writing and sharing. They name the social stigma and proceed to prove why they don't matter when it comes to love. Age really is just a number. And love really can conquer all.
