Philosophers and artists see things differently, including romance and love.

Book 5 finds Drake Barrymore contemplating his philosophies about many things, including his attraction to a certain sexy Philosophy professor. In 42 years of living, Drake has seen the best and worst life has to offer. He has loved and lost a wife. He has managed to raise his son alone. But now all he can think about is a woman who is way too young for him. Dr. Brooke Daniels has an enticing body, a kiss-me mouth, and a sharp gaze that questions all the excuses he tries to make.

On his canvasses Drake can cover life's truth with paint, but he knows all too well that strategy won't work in his real life, especially not with his current problem. All he can see without loving Brooke is more loneliness than he's ever known.

I've been anxiously waiting almost 2 years since I read the last book in this series (Commissioned in White). If you've read this entire series as I have, you've probably missed the Larson family. We got glimpses into the angst and push/pull of Brooke and Drake in the 2 previous books. While this storyline was not what I was expecting, I was not disappointed. "I will never, ever take being with you for granted. It's not in my nature. I may be possessive and demanding and too intense at times, but you will never, ever go ignored. You're all the dreams I've been having come to life. All I want is to enjoy you...if you'll let me." -Drake (swoon) Brooke and Drake had a few hurdles to overcome to get a chance at happily ever after (12 year age difference, teenage/college son returning home after a year away, Drake's famous art showcasing the love he had for his deceased wife, a possible health problem for Brooke, and more). All of this made for a compelling storyline that made it relatable to the reader. This book has it all with angst, steamy sex scenes, humor, and love...not just romantic love between the 2 main characters, but also among the Daniels and Larson families who support and love each other. This book can be read as a stand-alone, but I would highly recommend reading the entire series in order to understand the roles of the supporting characters and their relationships with each other. I hope there is a story on the horizon for Brandon and Chelsea...this book certainly set them up for a future book. However, it looks like we'll be getting Jillian's story next with Carved In Wood. Looking forward to it!

In this fifth book of Donna McDonald’s ART OF LOVE series, she has brought such depth and emotion.  Drake has loved and tragically lost and is hesitant to enter into a long term relationship again even though he is attracted to the feisty, younger Brooke Daniels.  Drake, a 42 year old art professor and father to 19 year old Brandon, is still in the prime of his life and is questioning whether he will ever find real love again.  Brooke, a 30 year old philosophy professor, is skeptical about love, but feels at her age she should be thinking more about a future mate and children.  Is Drake “the one”?  With overwhelming complications working against them, they work hard at developing a relationship that can sustain through all the good times and bad.     Reading about Drake and Brooke’s budding and developing relationship challenges will subject the reader to many different emotions.  The story line rings so true to real life experiences.   I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for an excellent read.  If you have not read the first four books in this series, they are amazing too!

This is the final installment of the Art of Love series. In this one, Drake is an artist and an art professor and Brooke, Jessica’s daughter, is a philosophy professor. Drake knows that he has something for the young, elusive Brooke, but something is holding him back. And Brooke’s obsessive fear concerning Drake’s job, more so his constant exposure to young, perky breasts, has her feeling insecure and lost, until you realize that there’s an underlying health concern behind the reasoning. Quick and easy. Story had true-to-life characters that didn’t necessarily leap off the page, but you could empathize and relate in some way. The love story was honest and hopeful, and the wrap-up was clean and simple albeit a bit too convenient.

As the other reviewers said "it was well worth the wait." The entire "Art of Love " series is entertaining. Brooke and Drake's story is no exception.
