About three years ago, ornithologist Sara Carmichael relocated to Fairdale, Pennsylvania for the opportunity to work at the Fairdale Bird Sanctuary. She became fast friends with fellow employee Kim O’Halloran, and moved in with Kim and her hunky younger brother Brad, when her landlord decided to renovate her apartment. There was instant chemistry from the moment Sara and Brad set their eyes on each other. Unfortunately, Sara is forty-two and Brad is twenty-nine, almost thirty, and getting involved with a much younger man causes Sara a ton of angst and uneasiness. Furthermore, she believes getting involved with Brad may jeopardize her wonderful friendship with Kim.
Brad is a smart, good-looking guy that owns a very successful car repair shop. He is divorced and is falsely known around town as being a ladies man. Unbeknownst to most people, he only got married because he thought the girl he was seeing was pregnant with his child, which ended up being a lie. He wants to settle down and have a meaningful relationship. Brad does not see age as a barrier to love.
Living temporarily in the same house only increases the lust and longing both Sara and Brad feel for each other. After flirting on and off for a couple of months, they end up having steamy, scorching sex and can't keep their hands off of each other. Brad is falling in love with Sara but believes that he is not good enough for her. Brad makes Sara a happier and better person, but she is having trouble believing that and ends up risking their future together. It takes Brad distancing himself from their relationship to make Sara realize he is the man for her.
Sara keeps her pet bird Telly caged in her bedroom. Telly is a mimicking bird and has picked up on the words and phrases that the newly formed couple have used during their rendezvouses together. It is absolutely hysterical when Telly loudly shares his new vocabulary. Kim has certainly picked up on the fact that Sara and Brad are sleeping together, she just does not understand why they are so secretive about it. Telly's outbursts only adds comical confirmation to the situation.
In the beginning of the book, Sara has a bad cold and Brad nurses her back to health, which includes great sex. By the end of the book, Brad has caught Sara's sickness and she returns the favor. I guess only true lovers can enjoy each other when one is feverish, sneezing, coughing and wheezing.
This is a fast read. The writing is very good and I would have enjoyed the story even more with some additional plot development.

This book had some super hot moments between Sara and Brad. It's a miracle they were able to keep their relationship a secret for as long as they did with all the noise they made. lol There were some things that happened while she was sick that kind of irked me out but that's probably just because I like to be left alone when I'm sick. Go get me a drink or some food and then leave me alone! lol While I did enjoy the book I had a hard time getting sucked into it. I felt that it dragged a bot in places and with my short attention span that meant I would put it down and come back to it later. But I did enjoy the overall story line of the book. Brad and Sara work well together and you can't help but fall for a man who takes care of you when you are sick and then showers you with sweet gestures and sexy baths when you are better! I laughed a lot while reading this book which is always fun. I love a book that can make me laugh out loud and this one definitely succeeded. I'm excited to see this is the start of a series cause I really want to read Kim's (Brad's sister) book next!!
