Is it an accidental pregnancy, if it’s purposefully planned?
Autumn Kulis wants a baby. It’s that simple and that complicated because one thing stands in her way - she doesn’t have a man in her life. And at almost forty, she isn’t getting any younger. On a two-week trip to her brother’s lakeside cottage, a plan forms. Make a list of three men. Sleep with each of them. Allow nature to take its course. Only, a certain someone gets in her way.
Logan Anders goes with the flow of life. Divorced, single dad, he works hard, and occasionally plays harder. When his college roommate invites him to Lakeside Cottage for two weeks, he hadn’t remembered his best friend’s little sister being so hot. Nor was he a fan of her plan to find a baby daddy. He’s determined to make her list then tear it to shreds leaving him the only man horizontal with her.
When we were forty, we had so much life to live, and a simple proposition could be the start of a second chance at really living.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
I am a sucker for a single-dad romance so when I saw L.B. Dunbar had one, I knew I needed to get my eyes on it. And let the record show that Living at 40 was so much more than I bargained for.
I really liked Autumn. Independent and kind. She was a woman who knew what she wanted and was going to make it happen. Lucky for her, her brother, Ben, orchestrated a trip that brought her childhood crush right to the door. Oh that Logan. I LOVED the way he was with his daughter. And how he went out of his way to let Autumn know that he saw her and wanted her. But when life came calling, the magic that they found at the cottage went right out the window.
I really liked that both characters had some life experience. Had suffered. Had changed and grew. Faced challenges that required sacrifice. But when it all came down to it, they both followed where their heart was calling them...to each other.
Autumn and Logan's quasi second-chance romance was full of laughter and tears. Walks down memory lane and dreams of the future and all it could hold. I am looking forward to heading back to the lake and seeing where this series goes.
About the Author
I’ve been accused of having an over-active imagination. To my benefit, this imagination has created over twenty novels, including the creation of a small-town world (Sensations Collection), rock star mayhem (Legendary Rock Star series), MMA chaos (Paradise Stories), rom-com for the over forty (The Sex Education of M.E.), and a suspenseful island for redemption (The Island Duet). My alter ego, elda lore, creates magical romance through mythological retellings (Modern Descendants). My life revolves around a deep love of reading about fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and strong alpha males. I love a deep belly laugh, a strong hug, and an occasional margarita. My other loves include being mother to four grown children and wife to the one and only.
