    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 kidsNick 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 herProblem is he is 26 and Holly thinks he is too young to be tied downThis was a uick 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 storieswith characters getting a second chance at a romantic lifeIn 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 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 meI enjoyed this realistic love story because lets face it romance and happily ever after don't happen easily We have to fight for themSylvie Fox's book is fast paced and engaging and easy romance read for a lazy afternoon

    Overall Rating 275 out of 5 starsSummaryDivorced and tired of the self imposed celibate life Holly Prentice is ready to continue the search for Mr Right and she’s got a few reuirements for the contenders out there Namely he can’t be married to his job and must have a comfy couch in addition to the bed When Nick Andreis an old friend from her past walks into her life looking good enough to devour Holly decides that maybe a Mr Right Now might not be such a bad arrangementNick has been in love with Holly for years and this man six years her junior and owner of a couch less house is doing everything he can to convince her that his status of Mr Right Now should change into Mr Right Forever When passions and unexpected life changes collide however it’s anyone’s guess whether these two lovers can stand the test of timeOverall ImpressionsMy overall impression of this book is rather mixed I thoroughly enjoyed the realistic depiction of the dynamic relationship between the two main characters It was also a refreshing change to see a realistic understanding of how both of them would deal with an unexpected pregnancy in a different way The overall impression of the relationship was one that was routed in reality but still with the passion that most people desireHowever there were times in the story when the cadence of the writing seemed somewhat forced almost as if the author was trying to fulfill a word count uota For example there were a number of instances when the color of the heroine’s eyes were described either as honey amber brown with gold flecks et cetera It was if the author was afraid that I would forget that her eyes were light brown Also there were a number of almost clichéd expressions that made it into the book such as “ holding her as if she was the most precious breakable crystal” However thankfully they were few and far betweenOverall impressions definitely a book to put on your to borrow list and if you enjoy romances where the heroine is a little experienced it is a respectable choiceRating system0 Stars – Great for kindling or wasting space on your hard drive1 Star – Perfect gift for that person you can’t stand2 Stars – Put it on your to Borrow list3 Stars – Buy it if you get the chance worth a weekend read4 Stars – This is definitely something to add to your library5 Stars – Impulse Buy Approved

    So When I read the blurb on this book my first thought wasJackpot 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 subseuently divorced woman but I got a sense that it grew And that was great No sudden falling in lovea gradual slide that he didn't try to run from GreatBut thenThe 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 forgetwhen 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 seriouslyahhhhhhhh 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 mineI mean the setup is awesome but that woman Woo sahI 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

    Why oh why oh whyI loved the beginning of this book but then I was just so mad at her and then at him I found myself powering through till 3am to make sure their happily ever after came to fruition I love a second chances love story So think of a marriage gone south and the younger much hotter friend of the ex husband stepping in and making all your wild fantasies come true Then just when he has you believing in all his candyland stories he pulls the rug out from under you and leaves you hangingliterally “I love you but” does not work for me in real life or my books Nick’s character was all in with two feet and his full heart but then bam Gone I totally did not understand him his motivation or his lack of follow through Nick was not deep enough for my liking He had issues he really should have stayed and talked to Holly And Holly doesn’t get off that easy either That girl was a mess and only succeeded in dragging Nick into her mess and messing up his life She really needed a wakeup call and she needed to stop floating through life at the whim of men Rant out These two were good and steamy and that made the book The whole first 23’s of Nick trying to woo Holly was awesome Check this book out and then tell me what you all thinkEnjoy

    Just reading the description is enough said What is there not to love? Just what the Doctor would order cold night steamy book and a cup of cocoa Holly Prentice is ready to date Nick is what you can classify as typical male Well I take it back he changes when he hooks up with Holly Nicks game of convincing Holly he is her one is great The way his mind works and his delivery is fun and fabulous Sometimes the friends with benefits things work out for the best Maybe they can just be that until something else comes along I guess it is fun to see Holly and Nick tryWhat I don't like is the description giving away a reveal The cat is out of the bag and Holly is pregnant So ignore you know that information and enjoy a funny cute sexy and romantic book

    OK I thought this book was pretty good but there were some frustrating parts in it for meFirst I got frustrated with Holly being so stubborn and saying that she wants to commit and the whole she bang but then when Nick offers her that she chooses not to see it and keep sugar coating it with the whole age debacle I wanted to tear my head out when he kept offering and then she kept spewing about these stupid rulesOnce Holly actually believes Nick and lets him in and loves him then BAM Nick steps back because this was not the timing of how he wanted things to go in his life and now he's not sure WTF? I may have started to grind my teeth at this point but thankfully Nick and Holly found the proper bridge back to one anotherIt's crazy how we put so much on perception and how we think things should be instead of seeing and appreciating what is in front of us With Nick and Holly if they just loved each other and didn't get stuck on so many notions they would have had such an easier time finding their HEA but if this was the case than it would have been a novella LOL You can also find me on Live Read and Breathe FacebookLive Read and Breathe TwitterFor of my reviewsLive Read and Breathe Live Read and Breathe Giveaway for new followers

    When I read the blurb I was very intrigued In the beginning I found nick to be a really sweet and romantic He was such a cute romantic he was very patient with holly When holly was still married to his mentor drew he developed a crush holly Of course she was married and he didn't want to become a home wreckerIt's been a year since holly divorced her now ex husband drew She's currently 32 years old and she really wants to settle down and have kids of her own Ok good storyline but there were also parts of this book that just really frustrated me Nick is 26 6 years younger than Holly I don't like how holly felt like she knew what was best for nick Nick is obviously pouring out his heart for her and she's basically saying its just a phase and it'll pass when someone else shows up For a majority of this book nick is trying to show holly how perfect they are for each other THEN a twist happens and the tables completely flip Nick is now the one backing away from their relationship and it just disappoints holly because she was FINALLY ready to make the relationship work between them These 2 just really frustrated the hell out of meI did like the side characters though I found Sophie to be uite the intriguing character And Dominic is just a nice man Nick is lucky to have him as a father Thy do eventually get their HEA but it took some time and you need the patience to not want to punch out the characters this copy was given to me in exchange for an honest review
