Diane Matthews is a forty-five year old divorced mother of three.  He life is filled with her work and family and she is very happy with that. That is until she meets Michael Flynn Carlucci a twenty-six year old member of a boy band.  When they meet sparks fly and continue to do so throughout the book.

I really loved Michael. He was so sweet, thoughtful and giving that he was much more mature than most twenty-six year olds. He has been around the music scene since he was sixteen so there is not much he hasn’t seen or done but he is still very down to earth and connected with his family. 

Diane was an interesting heroine. She was very self-sufficient and was not used to accepting help from anyone.  Throughout the book she seemed to always be subtly pushing Michael away with one hand and pulling him closer with the other.  It was a very fun journey to take with them. 

I only brought it down to four stars because there were some confusing sections where Ernst would switch perspectives in the middle of a chapter or another characters train of thought but they did not take away from the plot or general story. 

I was getting nervous and anxious towards the end as to how Ernst was going to wrap everything up but I was very satisfied.  I would have liked a little more at the end with Diane and Michael, maybe an epilogue to catch up with them after a few months or so.  Mainly because most of the last part of the book we are following Diane so we don’t get much of Michael and, like I said, I just loved him and want more with him.  Overall I really enjoyed this book and I hope to read more from this author in the future.
