WINE & DINE
A romance for the over 40
By L.B Dunbar
Release Day: June 3
When I was falling apart, I fell in love.
It wasn’t supposed to happen like this.
I ran away from life and ended up running into…his dog.
Actually, his dog ran into me. I don’t care for dogs.
Then I met the owner.
When my neighbor’s sister came to visit,
I promised to show her around town.
I’m an investor in things, not people, not emotions.
I’m not a fan of love. I’ve been burned before.
Then I met Dolores.
When a sexy mature, man-of-means encounters a silver vixen, healing her broken heart might be worth more than gold.
Romance has no age limit.
Review by Barbara
I just love these over 40 themed books and may I say L B Dunbar writes them superbly. Her Silver Fox series is one of my very favorites a must read if you like this genre. Wine and Dine, like the others in this series, has strong characters that know their minds and what they want out of life (or so they think).
Dolores is Denton’s sister. (We met her in Denton’s story: Second Chance). When Denton took off from home at a young age, Dolores was left to deal with her disaster for parents, her aging grandmother and the family diner. Now that her parents have died, it's become apparent to her just how tired she really is and how much her life is stuck in a rut. So when Denton offers her a vacation at his California Condo, she take a wild chances and says yes. For once in her life doing something for herself.
Garrett is a self made successful businessman who has the world by the tail. He has good looks, money, women, a fast car and a condo on the beach, which happens to be right next door to Denton’s. He isn’t looking for anything else, especially not a relationship as he’s been burned before and has learned from his mistakes. But when his dog, accidently knocks down a woman standing of the beach, he’s taken by surprise at the attraction he feels. As for the woman, Dolores, she is wowed by his looks but fuming at his dogs antics and the man’s attempt at what this small town girl can only assume is California charm. Garrett is used to getting things easily, especially women, so when the hot mess he met on the beach doesn’t seem interested, the challenge is on. Little does he know this small town feisty gal just may make him rethink what’s important in his life while teaching her life can be more that just settling for what is.
From here the storyline takes off and will take you emotions on a fabulous ride. The book is very well written and the characters and their actions are so defined you will right there in the moments with them. Kudos Ms. Dunbar for giving us a romantic, sexy, exciting, emotional storyline that warmed my heart and had me smiling throughout. 2 Huge Thumbs Up and 5 romantic stars for Wine & Dine.
