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.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
Not sure how L.B. Dunbar does it, but with every single one of her 'Sexy Silver Foxes' books, gets better and better. Wine&Dine was a total swoon fest but it was also jam packed full of feels.
I was a little skeptical about Delores at first. But the more I got to know her, the more I rooted for her. Life had been far from kind to her and it showed in some of the choices she made. She was so strong, she had to be, but she was also a bit broken. When her brother, Denton (from Second Chance), gives her the getaway she needs, she realizes just how tired she is. Especially, of not living the life she wants for herself. A big part of her deciding to go after what she really wanted was the encouragement she got from her sexy new neighbor, Garrett.
To say the first meeting between Garrett and Delores was a mess, is a big understatement. These to did not hit it off at all. But Garrett was intrigued by the sad woman and he wormed his way into her orbit. It started small, but they started to spend more time together. and he couldn't pass up the opportunity to show her how a real man treats a woman. I loved that he saw Delores for who she was. A woman who loved the classics but had dreams of her own. He appreciated her sharp mind and giving spirit. But it was the fact that she didn't want him for what he was, but who he was that sealed the deal. Before long for real feelings to get involved. And it scared both of them.
On a night that should've been magical, things got really tangled. Delores was running and Garrett was reeling and lost. He did the one thing he never planned on, chasing a woman. And what mess he walked into. Granted, it was a mess he helped create, but it was a mess he could also help clean up- if Delores would let him. I loved seeing her backbone of steel come out. She put her foot down and let her feelings be known, even if it wasn't what everyone wanted to hear.
I can't say enough good things about Wine&Dine. For Delores it started as a trip to escape but she found so much more than she was betting on. She found herself and a love that became her home in Garrett. And Garrett found a place and a person to call his. A place and heart to hang his future with. This story from L.B. Dunbar proves that it is never too late to chase your dreams or your heart.
