    A delightfully entertaining read

    A beautifully written story, Late Bloomer delighted me from the opening chapter right up to the end. The last person Carolyn expected to see on her arrival at Santa Fe was her recalcitrant pupil Brody. However, the class clown and hell raiser has changed and he is no longer the teasing trouble maker she remembers so well. Carolyn depicts so many woman who have allowed life to pass them by, resulting in them missing out on building relationships, having family and enjoying the gift of children. As competent as she is in her teaching profession, Carolyn exhibits cautious behaviour, and even more so when confronted with her fears. Brody on the other hand, is far more handsome than Carolyn ever expected, but he too has been through experiences that have made him rethink his lifestyle and choices. Together they have a dynamic connection, one that transcends time and their age difference. Added to the mix, Mama V's new love interest has brought about unprecedented changes, to that extent that Carolyn almost doesn't recognise her grandmother. There were a few hilarious moments when Carolyn is confronted by just how much her grandmother has changed and it makes her take a long, hard look at herself. I loved every moment of this book, the descriptions of the area and the unusual personalities with their quirks and phobias. As a woman I could identify with Carolyn and her insecurities. The fact that Brody could change as much as he did, makes him irresistible as a man. I highly recommend this book.

    Fantastic May/December Romance

    Late Bloomer (Man from Yesterday Book 4) by Barbara Lohr This is Brody and Carolyn's story. What an amazing May/December story where the women is older. Carolyn taught Brody during his senior year and her first year teaching high school. It's been ten years and ran into each other when traveling to see her grandmother. Brody is no longer a high school boy. He is all man. I loved his character. There was so much depth to Brody. It was fun and sweet watching their relationship change. Some seemed concern about the student/teacher relationship. There was nothing inappropriate between them during the time Brody was her student. It's been ten years since they have seen each other so you are talking about a woman in her early thirties and a man in his late twenties getting together. Ten years changes a lot of things. The story was done very tastefully. This was a fun and entertaining read. I really enjoyed Brody and Carolyn's story. A May/December romance with humor, chemistry, and lots of emotion with the woman being the older one. We need more stories like Late Bloomer.

    Contemporary Romance

    Late Bloomer by Barbara Lohr Man from Yesterday #4 Teaching 18 year olds fresh out of college can’t be easy. I remember one such teacher from my high school days and a ride from Los Angeles to the Colorado River for a skiing trip with classmates. What I remember more than her teaching was her reaching over to take the hand of one of my male classmates and feeling very uncomfortable as he snuggled against his shoulder when he was driving. Sure, there wasn’t much age difference but even then it seemed…wrong. And then with all the talk of young men taken advantage of by their teachers being in the news recently… Okay…that is NOT what this book is about at all…not really…but it did bring these memories to mind as I read. So, THIS book is about a woman who has been teaching for ten years. She has gone from Michigan to Arizona to care for her grandmother and is offered a ride from the airport by someone she taught her first year out of college. Carolyn sort of remembers Brody but, having been a teacher myself, I doubt she remembers much about him. Anyway, they talk, he remembers his “crush” on her when he was 18, there is chemistry of a sort, they end up dating and of course the age difference is mentioned but with him now 28 and her 32 the age gap is not so great BUT the distance between their homes and potential for a future together is iffy at best. How they work it out, the ways they spend time together, the problems they have to overcome – all work together to build a very enjoyable read. AND, there is a second romance that is added in – one between Carolyn’s grandmother and someone she met in Santa Fe ;) Thank you to the author for the ARC – this is my honest review. 4 Stars

    Barbara Lohr gives readers what they want.

    Late Bloomer is a fresh take on the May/December romance. I have never really been a fan of those, but Ms. Lohr opened my heart and eyes to all the possibilities. When the student becomes the teacher both individuals realize they still have a lot to learn about life, love and new beginnings. Barbara Lohr gives readers what they want, a chance to relax and escape with some feel good fun.
