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 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.
Choosing Happy is a story of second time loves. It contains swoon-worthy romance with a message that happiness is a choice one must make and age doesn’t define us. I could have read for days Sean and Madison’s story.
Remember Sean from Somewhere In Between. He is best friend of Drew’s. This boy did not have a serious bone in his body. Then he meets Madison and his world goes full tilt. The only problem is that Madison feels too old for him, but Shawn doesn’t care on iota about age. Can he convince Madison of that?
It was fun seeing the characters continue from Somewhere In Between. If you haven’t read that book, I suggest you read it at some point. It is fantastic. It is a story of best friends and forgiveness. Having Sean get his story finally was a real treat. He needed someone to get his attention and hold it for a while. Madison definitely does that.
Madison is a woman who is brought up by snobby parents. She married a man who seemed to fit her right, until he did her wrong. She is learning to trust herself as well as others. She starts off with certain expectations of what should happen after a divorce. The problem I saw with her is that she looked upon other’s expectations too much. I was really rooting for Madison and Sean to get a happily-ever-after. I just didn’t know if it would happen.
The plot of the story is pretty steady. Madison’s indecision seems to be one of the main conflicts of the story. There are a few other surprises thrown in, but hey it wouldn’t be a surprise if I told you.
Samatha Harris creates another great novel that will help keep you swooning from a young romance story.
Samatha “Sam” Harris lives near Baltimore, Maryland with her husband David and daughter Ava. Born in Florida, she migrated north which most people agree was a little backwards. She has been an artist all of her life, a Tattoo Artist for more than ten years, and a storyteller since she was a kid.
Sam has a slightly unhealthy love for Frank Sinatra, classic movies, and Jazz and Blues music, but her first love will always be reading. From Romance, to Thrillers, to Historical Fiction and everything in between, she loves to become a part of the story. As a writer she tells the stories that she would want to read.
“So beautiful, tell me about yourself,” I said, hoping to steer the conversation down a lighter path.
I laughed. “Why not?”
“Don’t you think I’m a little old for you?”
I smiled. “I don’t discriminate when it comes to beautiful women.”
She laughed. “I’m sure you don’t.”
“So, tell me something.”
“Look, Sean, you’re sweet, but…”
I clutched my chest and doubled over feigning pain. “Sweet? Sweet is the kiss of death,” I said.
“No guy wants to be sweet. Hot, sure. Sexy, definitely. Ruggedly handsome, well that’s a given, but sweet is just female code for I’m never gonna sleep with you.”
“That’s not what I meant,” she said.
I raised an eyebrow and leaned in closer. “Oh, so you do want to sleep with me?”
“What? No!” She leaned away from me, so flustered that her cheeks turned fourteen different shades of red. She covered her face with her hands and I laughed, taking a hold of her wrists to pull her hands away. Her blush and that shyness was sexy as hell. She seemed so reserved and quiet, but every once in a while, especially when provoked, this witty, sassy side came out and it made me want more.
“It’s nothing to be embarrassed about,” I said. “A lot of women want to sleep with me.”
