“Sometimes, I feel like I’m watching a movie . . . that it’s not really me, Claire Richards, getting this second chance at life.”
“Open your eyes, it’s you, and I’m damn glad it’s with me.” ~ Aiken
Single mom and college professor Claire Richards only wanted a few hours of me time to soak in her tub, read a book, and drink wine.
But tragedy struck, and Claire found herself with a lot more me time than she bargained for.
Three years later, Claire is still mourning her losses when Aiken Fordham—who looks young enough to be one of her college students—moves in next door.
Forcing Claire to face her fears, Aiken almost forgets his reason for moving to Small Town, Pennsylvania. Falling for the sexy, smart, and strong professor next door was never in the plan.
But now it is . . . until their future intersects with their pasts.

*** 3 Star Review ***
I have enjoyed Rachel Blaufeld's books in the past. They are always sweet with a side of angst. I have been falling in step with second chance romances lately, so I scooped this one up at the first chance.
This book is a sweet story. The subplots helped keep the book moving. However, I had a difficult time with the characters. The age difference didn't bother me. But the characters themselves seemed a lot younger than they were.
The story is self had it ups and downs. It slowed and and picked up. It was a little back and forth for me. Overall, it was a good book. It just wasn't my favorite of Rachel's thus far.
