I started this book on Tuesday and finished it on Thursday – and it only took me that long because the rest of my life got a little busy. It’s a quick, enjoyable read and I really liked both Jack and Chloe. He is a strong, dependable country boy, who has been waiting patiently on the sidelines for Chloe to see him as more than a friend. She has a few hangups about commitment because of her past and values him too much to chance losing him due to a breakup. But Jack’s tired of waiting and he’s got a plan to get Chloe on the same page. Of course, it wouldn’t be a romance if things went smoothly! I really enjoyed the back and forth between the two but I will say that I was a little confused by the time frame for the story. We started it with Chloe’s 39th birthday and ended on her 40th but it didn’t seem like a year passed. Maybe a few months but it definitely didn’t feel like a whole year. It’s just a minor complaint and I wouldn’t even have mentioned it if it wasn’t so blatantly stated. So in fairness I thought I should point it out :) Forty Candles is a short, earthy read – with tons of heat and heart, friendship and romance. It’s got a hero who has the patience of a saint, knows exactly what to say and do, but is about to reach his breaking point. He’s ready to take on a heroine who’s too busy running that she’s not seeing that there is a man in the world that knows all her warts but loves her anyway. Jack’s just going to have to trick her into seeing the truth that’s been in front of her all along. (complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

Forty Candles is a short but rather amazing story centering around Chloe and Jack. Chloe is a tortured woman that has endured two painful divorces, one between her parents when she was a young girl, and one when she was 25 years of age, with her own husband! Jack is her childhood friend and her first boyfriend, who stayed beside her through all the hardships of her life even after they split up. He has loved her since the first time they had been together but Chloe is afraid to let go of her insecurities. She thinks she is incapable of feeling love and committing to a faithful relationship. I loved the chemistry between the two heroes and the way the events unfolded. It was a passionate story that I had expected to revolve around sex, but I am glad to admit that it did not. It was so much more, with quite realistic protagonists that dealt with real life problems. I greatly enjoyed both the storyline and the way the author writes. I will definitely try more of her books, soon! All in all, 5 stars for a great read that I deeply enjoyed!

Approaching 40 is a tough time in a woman’s life. You officially enter middle age and you look back and try to figure out how you ended up where you are and you look forward to see if it gets any brighter. That is where Chloe Walker is. Chloe is the child of divorce and lost her husband as he was leaving her for another woman. There has only been one steady male in her life, Jack Leonard. Jack has loved Chloe since they were kids. He has been there for her through thick and thin. Enough is enough he loves her and knows she loves him if only she will allow herself to. Can he convince Chloe or will he have to walk away from the only woman he has ever loved? I love that this is about a more mature couple than most books I read. They still make stupid mistakes but don’t we all. Forty Candles is a sweet, fun, read that will get you thinking and sighing and reaching for the tissue box.
