The Younger Man by Karina Halle
Starting over was her only option.
Forty-years old and still reeling from a public and painful divorce, Thalia Blackwood is looking for a fresh start, somewhere far away from her upside down life. When she’s offered a new job as the sports therapist for a football (soccer) team, she jumps at the chance. This is just what she needs to leave the heartbreak and shame of Manchester behind, trading it in for the warmth and hopeful vibrancy of Madrid.
He was her only desire.
Twenty-three year old Alejo Albarado is rising up the ranks in his career. As the charming forward for the Real Madrid team, Alejo’s life revolves around women, parties, and being a tabloid darling, that is until the new sports therapist joins the team.
Their passion could not be ignored.
What starts out as a strictly professional relationship between Thalia and the young Spanish player, slowly evolves into something more. Much more.
Their relationship was forbidden.
But their combustible chemistry and simmering sexual tension can only go so far—should Thalia give into Alejo’s advances, she’s at risk of not only losing her job, but succumbing to a much younger man will drag her through the spotlight again.
Alejo might be worth that risk.
Unless he breaks her heart in the process.
**This is a complete standalone book.
5 Heart Review by Lorena
I absolutely LOVED this book! What a way to almost end the year. I mean I don't think I could have asked for more when it came to this sensual, hot and forbidden story.
Thalia and Alejo were magnificent together and I loved how their relationship evolved throughout the story and even though it was against policy and completely wrong in so many levels, I still thought it was an AMAZING love story between a much younger man and a much older woman.
I guess I loved this story so much because it just tells me that age is just a number. There is nothing wrong with falling in love with a much older man or woman. When love comes calling, it comes calling. You can't dictate what your heart wants and everyone around you needs to just accept it. If the relationship makes you happy then everyone should be happy for you.
Alejo was definitely one HOT stud and so, so tender and so caring for Thalia that it made my heart yearn for them both. I rooted for them from beginning to end and their love story is definitely one that will stay with me for a long time!
