A woman who has everything meets a man who can offer her nothing but trouble. They bring each other to a height of desire neither thought possible, but is it enough to overcome the differences that tear them apart?

Kate Champion, a forty-two-year-old, married mother of two, leads an enviable upper class life of luxury. Her comfortable path takes an unexpected detour after a chance encounter at a neighborhood playground.

Jaylee Inoa is a twenty-two-year-old, second generation New York Dominican with close ties to the Heights and the gangs that run them.

Does anyone have the perfect marriage? The perfect life? Kate comes close. She has the house, the two beautiful children, the loving husband and father, absolutely no money worries, a housekeeper, loyal babysitters and great friends. What more could she want? How about completely passionate hot sex with a complete bad boy? 

I said loving husband and he might be - when he’s home. Richard is an attorney and works constantly. The only family time they have are Sunday’s and some of them are taken up with garden parties and events for the firm. Kate is quite lonely but it takes a YOUNG bad boy to make her feel alive in a way she’s never felt before. She then realizes that her life is missing something huge. Complete love, passion and desire. 

Jaylee is 22 and has had a hard life. He takes care of his family, his mom & grandma and his sister. His dad was big in a gang and is in jail. Is Jaylee like his dad? Will he also live a criminal life? Kate sees more in him - she sees the good. But is it enough? Can she let him love her? Will their age become their downfall? Oh I didn’t mention…..she’s a LOT older than he is!

She has everything to lose. Her family, her husband, her girls, her LIFE! He stands to lose his heart. What will she choose? Love & Passion? or Comfort & Stability? 

I really enjoyed this book. She’s somewhat innocent but also has a side that goes after what she wants. When her husband basically told her he was getting a PI to follow Jaylee she still had him come pick her up!! I said, out loud, “she’s stupid” but my next thought was “you go girl”! And I can’t believe I thought that!!!! So not like me! 

Jaylee is so likable. From his look and his accent to his complete desire and love for Kate. Lets not forget his bad boy status!!! Richard has his own secrets and he went from the guy I was rooting for to wishing for a car crash! (It’s just a book! LOL)

I highly recommend this book! It has a great story and the characters are so deep and real. Some of the story can be sensitive but I don’t think it will bother the average reader. Definitely add this to your TBR list!

I’m a reader, a writer, and a lover of all things romantic. I’m also a coffee, hot sauce, ink, telenovela and Bikram Yoga enthusiast. I live in New York City with my husband and two children, and I spend a lot of time on the playground.
