After 45 Years Apart, They Have a Second Chance
When Robert and Victoria were young, Victoria broke Robert's heart and walked away, set on being an independent woman who wasn't going to get tied down. However, she had never found another man who measured up to Robert. 45 years later, they have a chance to be with each other again. Both of them are older, wiser and determined to be together again, no matter what.
I Wish My Sex Life Will Be This Good
This story is surprisingly beautiful. I was unsure of it because it's challenging to create a good romance with so few words, but this story impressed me.
It's not that often that I see a book featuring characters over 40, and I'm happy The Rekindled Affair did because I would hate for the fun to end at the beginning of middle age.
This story was short and sweet and I enjoyed the characters a lot. Despite all of the flaws that come with aging, both of them saw each other as handsome and beautiful, exactly like they had seen each other years ago.
I don't know these characters that well because this is a spin-off book of a series I've never read, but it was wonderfully romantic, even if it was short.
There are a couple of typos, but not enough to ruin the story. And there's one scene where Victoria's ripping off his shirt and one of the buttons hits him in the eye and hurt him and it's awkward. That made me cringe a little but I love how it didn't stop them from enjoying themselves. Honestly, there's not much in this story I can find fault with, and I just hope I have that good of a love life when I'm 70.
This is definitely a quick read that I recommend. You can get it for free here.
