Overview

As Cassie approaches fifty; she believes she missed her opportunity for love. Raising her youngest son, Joshua, alone, she faces challenges that overshadow her personal needs. Over the years, she lost touch with her essence, vibrancy, and femininity. Long ago, she accepted monotony and loneliness as her destiny. Fate intervenes in the form of a program to help Joshua adjust to his own young adulthood, where she meets Ellicott, or Eli. However, Eli, an intellectual old soul disguised as a beautiful younger man also realizes Cassie’s needs as they discuss some of the most personal details of her life. Cassie fascinates Eli and she arouses him mentally and physically. For them, age makes no difference; it makes her more beautiful to him, as Eli renews Cassie’s faith in romance. As their connection deepens, they stimulate each other’s minds, as well as their physical desires, to a smoldering level of passion.

    A Beautiful Love Story

    Davee Jones entertains in her charming, lighthearted novella, On Ellicott Street.

    After her divorce, Cassie Stewart, a woman in her late forties, focuses on raising her teenage son, Joshua, and sacrifices her personal life in the process. After Joshua acts out in school, Cassie meets Ellicott Street, who runs the program to which Joshua has been referred. Even though Cassie is many years older than Ellicott, she is attracted to the very handsome program coordinator. Quite believably, Jones offers Cassie’s assessment of her own physical attributes and her worries about what a man might think of her curves, sagging skin, and stretch marks. Since I’m of similar age, I could really relate to Cassie as a woman and a mom. At their first meeting, Ellicott sees Cassie as a beautiful and intelligent woman. Therefore, the age difference isn’t important to him. For Ellicott, getting to know Cassie and discovering what makes her happy is of supreme importance, which makes him the best kind of leading man. Ellicott and Cassie are a couple to cheer for because they fit each other, intellectually and physically.

    Those who love realistically portrayed characters and a beautiful love story will find On Ellicott Street the perfect book to curl up with.

    I received an eBook copy from the publisher for purpose of an honest review for The Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    I absolutely loved this book! It's a wonderful short and refresh

    I absolutely loved this book! It's a wonderful short and refreshing novel that could be easily read in an afternoon.
     An everyday mom, who thought she would end up alone after her husband divorces her, falls in love with a 
    younger man, who has so much more to offer than just his gorgeous body. It truly is a story anyone could easily
     fall in love with because the characters are so real and can see beauty in the ordinary.  From the way they 
    meet to everything else that happens between them, it's a story that went beyond the sex drive of two people 
    and showed the uniting of two adults who came together starting from the soul.

    Posted on Romancing the Books blog
    / Reviewed by Lori / Review Copy from the Publisher / Ok, I have to say that this was a really cute very light book to read away an afternoon. So, the gist of the story is this “older” woman (she’s in her mid 40′s ladies), named Cassie, has this teenage son (Joshua) who has been giving her some heartache at home and at school enrolls him in this after school program that is being run by a very good looking younger man (he’s 30!!!!). I loved the way these two meet up with each other and take things to the next level. Cassie has some hang ups about being older and not as attractive and Joshua, he’s not as much of a putz as you would think a rebellious teenaged boy would be. I’m not giving away Mr. Fabulous’s (younger man), name as that would give something away, which I shant do to you!!!!
