San Francisco, 1971: hippies in the streets, music and revolution in the air. The evening Marek Sumner opened his door to the wild-looking Felicity Powers, he knew nothing would ever be the same again. But even love and passion couldn’t keep them together.

Forty-three years later, having lived in the world’s most dangerous places as a foreign aid worker, Felicity is back, still offering him love, passion, and adventure. But why would Marek risk having his heart broken a second time? Now a well-known author, he loves his calm, solitary life in an isolated farmhouse. He and Felicity are just too different; their relationship could never work.

But Felicity is just as fascinating and joyful as ever, and that wonderful sexy magic is still there too. As for love, perhaps it’s even deeper and more delightful the second time around.

It's never to late for the one that got away! Felicity's Power by J. Arlene Culiner was consumed through both audio & ebook. Read by Jill Culiner HEA with no cliffhanger! This is a Standalone Romance. Length: 5 hrs and 56 mins Content Advisory: There are mild sex actions and thoughts, but not much and no "C" words were used. ♥ Story ♥ Felicity and Marek met 43 years ago in college. Their attraction came quite sudden and intense as it often does when you're so young. Different ideas of what each wanted for their future, eventually lead to their demise. This story is told through a series of flashbacks, and at times it can get a bit confusing. There is no true aural clues to signal the shifts in time. I ended up reading along with the ebook as I listened to the audiobook. Felicity and Marek are both incredibly stubborn and their lack of communication makes it even worse for their relationship. Felecity's penchant for running away from her problems, doesn't help either. And she doesn't just run to a friend's house, she runs to the other side of the globe! Forty years and all it entails, doesn't damper the attraction and love these two still feel. But just as the warmth returns so does the cold. The epic level of tenacity and determination to hold out for the other to make the first move is astounding. The constant power tug of war carried on a little too long in my opinion. It is refreshing to have the main characters of a love story not be so young. Yes, there are many flashbacks to their youth, so we have a lot of interaction with them in their early 20s. Ultimately, the main meat and potatoes of the story, takes place with them in their 60s. Their bodies may of aged but they are still young at heart. ♥ Author ♥ This is my 1st read/listen by J. Arlene Culiner. This is her only audio title. She thinks outside the box and I like it! J. Arlene has 1 Audio titles. ♥ Narrator(s) ♥ This is my 1st listen by Jill Culiner and she did a good job. Her voice was well suited for both young and older Felicity. Jill has 1 Audio titles.

Reviewed by Janelle Fila for Readers' Favorite Felicity's Power by J. Arlene Culiner is a contemporary romance with an older hero and heroine, and asks the question, what happens when you come face to face with an old lover many years later? Marek Sumner and Felicity Powers were drawn to each other and responded with a hot and heavy romance. But they had their differences. Felicity wanted a life full of adventure. Marek wanted something more stable. Unfortunately passion wasn't enough to keep the pair together. Years later, the pair reunites and rekindles their passion for one another (that really never left). While Felicity wants to give the relationship a try, Marek is gun shy. He's still looking for stability and quiet and Felicity is still outgoing and adventurous. Can years change the fact that they are not compatible? It is up to Felicity to use her second chance to prove to Marek that their love is worth fighting for. I love the idea of stories that showcase old loves. Seeing parallel ages of characters is always interesting, too, since you get to see a wide development that isn't often found in other stories. This is a unique romance, though, in the fact that the characters are older. Most readers are expecting a young love, that is attractive and fresh and exciting. The idea of an older love can be so much more satisfying, thinking about what the characters gave up over the years, but some readers may have a hard time getting past the ages of those in the current romance.

At last! A romance story for mature readers. Written in J. Arlene's down to earth, humorous  style, bringing her unusual and interesting characters vibrantly to life. I loved this. I want to meet  Marek!  All through the book, I was swept along, feeling Felicity's passion and determination, as well as  the incertitude, despair and self-doubt that anyone who has loved has felt.  So nice, too,  not to be confused and distracted by having to keep track of way too many  characters, as is the case too often these days. Here you can just lose yourself in a masterfully  written love story. Can't wait to read her next book!

First, I want to let everyone know that I was asked to honestly review two books by author J. Arlene Culiner. The first is posted for A Swan’s Sweet Song, and I liked it very much. The second, for Felicity’s Power, was not posted because I believe it serves no purpose to post a bad review.  There are trolls everywhere and they seem to have no earthly purpose other than to hurt. I did, however, let the author know why I feel the way I do about this book, and she has asked me to publish my feelings anyway, as an honest, and perhaps interesting counterpoint. So here is the gist of what I said (beware, this may contain some spoiler info) ~ I also read Felicity's Power and ran into a few issues, mostly my own. Honestly, I think a dyed in the wool 60's feminist would have no issues with any of it. The writing was fine, but I must admit to a very strong anti-sixties bias, so I knew going in the mere subject would be a concern with me. Nevertheless, I read lots of stuff that isn't "me" and can still recognize if it’s a good story or not. With FP, the frequent flashbacks did become a distraction, but even that wasn't truly my problem. It boiled down to: I liked the hero, I didn't like the heroine. She came across to me as pushy, self-centered, her way or the highway. I kept thinking they'd both get to a place where they could meet in the middle. Alas, as I read it, there was no half way. He capitulates 100%, so she never has to learn the fine art of compromise. I don't give bad reviews because I feel very strongly that they accomplish nothing. Also, I can't give this a bad review, because the writing is good (the author definitely got a rise out of me!) - I just can't get past my personal dislike for Felicity. My advice? Check it out. If you like the 60’s, then you’ll probably love it. If you have nothing in particular against the 60’s, you’ll probably love it.
