Madison Buchanan’s life has imploded…
Her husband left her for his nineteen-year-old intern, leaving her alone and faced with starting over in her forties. With the help of her feisty best friend, Madison reinvents herself, armed with a new look and open to new possibilities.
Sean Taylor is gorgeous, fun, and young—very young…
He hasn’t had the best of luck. Sean’s track record with women is less than stellar, but when he walks into The Den one day, he just can’t help but be captivated by a dark haired beauty with the sad eyes and killer legs. She’s a little older, but he doesn’t discriminate. More than anything, he wants to be the one to make her smile.
Sean personifies the only thing that has eluded Madison all of her life—joy…
It was meant to be a fling, something fun, with no strings and zero drama, but Sean wants something more, and Madison is just not ready. She’s lived by the rules her family, her friends, even her boss have laid out for her, but her new life is not what she expected. Being with Sean opens feelings she never thought she’d experience.
The demands of her family and her job throw her boring, simple life into chaos, and Sean is no exception…
Madison is left with a choice. Give in to the expectations of the world around her—or choose to follow her heart and be happy.
But choosing happy is so much harder than it seems.
A fun second book in the Madison Square series. See my review to Somewhere in Between (Book 1) here.
Choosing happy follows Madison and Shaun. Madison’s life seems to be on track until her husband confesses he is cheating on her with a nineteen year old and then gets a divorce. Madison utilises her friends to help her bounce back. In the process she meets Shaun, a friend of her brothers. Madison though the book is often overpowered by the will of others characters whether it is her boss or her ex-husband. While she was an enjoyable character I was waiting for the time where she would stand up for herself.
Shaun’s character complements Madison perfectly. The relationship the two start up is clouded by the fact that Shaun is younger than Madison by fifteen years. This is brought up often as a reason Madison should not be in any relationship with Shaun. I liked Shauns personality and charm. The way he treats Madison has her off guard, no one has put her feelings before theirs and this sends Madison into a spin.
A lovely contemporary romance book where the development of the characters are a result of the other person in the relationship. This is a fun contemporary romance with plenty of drama. A great follow up to Somewhere in Between.
Keep Calm and Read On,
