****This book was part of a blog tour I received a copy for my honest review****
Holly is coming out of her self imposed hibernation after her divorce. She is 32 and ready to settle down, she wants the man, the stability, the kids.
Nick has wanted Holly for years, he was friends with her and her husband when they were together and has wanted her to turn to him. He feels ready for a solid relationship with her.
Problem is, he is 26 and Holly thinks he is too young to be tied down.
This was a quick romance read. I liked the idea of the story, older woman fighting with herself to not fall in love with the younger man. In fact I love these sorts of love stories,with characters getting a second chance at a romantic life.
In the Nick of Time gave me characters that were definitely unexpected. They were burdened by their past and definitely Holly, let that get in the way of her happiness. Both had there flaws which just made them more real in my eyes. I admit to being mad a both of them a different stages in this book, I was wishing that hard for their happiness that their decisions were frustrating me.
I enjoyed this realistic love story, because lets face it, romance and happily ever after don't happen easily. We have to fight for them.
Sylvie Fox's book is fast paced and engaging, and easy romance read for a lazy afternoon.

So. When I read the blurb on this book, my first thought was...Jackpot! Just the type of setup I like. Low on angst, high on hero in pursuit. Perfect! Until I got to about halfway through the book (which is where I am currently) and just had to share some thoughts.
The hero: young, successful, gorgeous and sickeningly in love. Just the type of guy I love. I would give my pinky to get a guy like this. Sure, we didn't get to see him cross from the friendship with the married woman to the infatuation with the subsequently divorced woman, but I got a sense that it grew. And that was great! No sudden falling in love...a gradual slide that he didn't try to run from. Great.
The heroine. Everything I hate about romance novels. She's got this great, gorgeous, younger guy who obviously has a thing for her and instead of trying to figure out what's really going on in his heart, she relegates him to the boy toy while she searches for Mr. Right. She just pissed me right the fuck off! I mean, this guy is obviously, at the very least, infatuated with you and you're using him as a booty call while you date other guys? And let's not forget...when he asks for exclusivity, what does he get? "I'm not looking for a serious relationship right now." The fuck??!! In that sme conversation, she told him that she was on a date with the other guy because she was ready to start back dating seriously! How are you ready for a serious relationship on a date with a guy you don't know but not ready for anything serious with the guy you know, like, and are banging? For an older woman, she was a down right ass! And you know what, I am positive that if he was dating some other chick, she'd be pissed off and hurt. But it's fine when she's the one doing it? You want a marriage and kids? Have you asked him if he does too? No! Just assume that he's a player though he's trying to be monogamous! Like, seriously....ahhhhhhhh! I cannot stand her! I'm gonna finish read this book, and hope she gets her head on right sometime soon and hopefully it becomes a favorite of mine.
I mean, the setup is awesome, but that woman! Woo-sah...I really hope I end up liking this and she grows a brain. Seriously. Please. If there is a god, let this book become what I thought it would be.
