Review - We Shall Ne'er Be Younger - or sexier?


Date read: January 2017

Genre: Romance involving a marine


My rating: 5* without doubt







I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I sensed some trepidation on the author's part in doing so. I am telling you this as I want it to be the last time she ever doubts herself in that way. This author has talent!

This book is beautiful.
I love that it centres on a couple in their fifties, and that it reveals how incredibly exciting new love is despite your age.
I also like that Emily is perfectly imperfect. She's not got model good looks, but does her best to have a good figure.

I was completely absorbed in the author's world of cotton candy love clouds.
I grinned inanely throughout most of this book.

Sure, they encounter obstacles; it's a romance novel and would be dull without any.

Emily has years' of experience, and I love how she has to struggle to keep Mike at bay.
This builds up some exquisite sexual tension which explodes across the pages eventually.
This is not an erotic book. It's a steamy romance. It's all appropriate and delectable.
It also keeps one foot in realism whilst having a dreamy hero (who has his flaws, obviously).

To call this a military romance seems to do it an injustice.
It's a steamy romance featuring a marine.

I felt all kinds of warm fuzzies reading this book.
One of the best books I've read in a long time.
Definitely recommend to a friend material.
