Late Bloomer (Man from Yesterday Book 4) by Barbara Lohr This is Brody and Carolyn's story. What an amazing May/December story where the women is older. Carolyn taught Brody during his senior year and her first year teaching high school. It's been ten years and ran into each other when traveling to see her grandmother. Brody is no longer a high school boy. He is all man. I loved his character. There was so much depth to Brody. It was fun and sweet watching their relationship change. Some seemed concern about the student/teacher relationship. There was nothing inappropriate between them during the time Brody was her student. It's been ten years since they have seen each other so you are talking about a woman in her early thirties and a man in his late twenties getting together. Ten years changes a lot of things. The story was done very tastefully. This was a fun and entertaining read. I really enjoyed Brody and Carolyn's story. A May/December romance with humor, chemistry, and lots of emotion with the woman being the older one. We need more stories like Late Bloomer.

I have read and loved all of the books in the Man From Yesterday series but Carolyn and Brody's romance will always be my favorite one for many reasons. Because the teacher/student relationship is generally interpreted in a negative way this genre of romance is sorely neglected and I thought the author handled the subject realistically and quite responsibly. Obviously these two characters are former teacher and former student but even Carolyn is initially uncomfortable with the tide of emotions Brody inspires within her. But thanks to her free spirited grandmother's encouragement and Brody's irresistible charm Carolyn slowly undergoes a complete transformation that totally changes the way she looks at her life. Brody has undergone a transformation of his own in the intervening years since high school, finding his true passion and success as an architect in the wide open spaces of Santa Fe. The sexual chemistry between these two characters is heart pounding and guaranteed to melt your heart with a very satisfying and sexy happily-ever-after. I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.

Late Bloomer by Barbara Lohr Man from Yesterday #4 Teaching 18 year olds fresh out of college can’t be easy. I remember one such teacher from my high school days and a ride from Los Angeles to the Colorado River for a skiing trip with classmates. What I remember more than her teaching was her reaching over to take the hand of one of my male classmates and feeling very uncomfortable as he snuggled against his shoulder when he was driving. Sure, there wasn’t much age difference but even then it seemed…wrong. And then with all the talk of young men taken advantage of by their teachers being in the news recently… Okay…that is NOT what this book is about at all…not really…but it did bring these memories to mind as I read. So, THIS book is about a woman who has been teaching for ten years. She has gone from Michigan to Arizona to care for her grandmother and is offered a ride from the airport by someone she taught her first year out of college. Carolyn sort of remembers Brody but, having been a teacher myself, I doubt she remembers much about him. Anyway, they talk, he remembers his “crush” on her when he was 18, there is chemistry of a sort, they end up dating and of course the age difference is mentioned but with him now 28 and her 32 the age gap is not so great BUT the distance between their homes and potential for a future together is iffy at best. How they work it out, the ways they spend time together, the problems they have to overcome – all work together to build a very enjoyable read. AND, there is a second romance that is added in – one between Carolyn’s grandmother and someone she met in Santa Fe ;) Thank you to the author for the ARC – this is my honest review. 4 Stars

First year teacher meets student ten years later and sparks fly. I liked the book, but I think Carolyn, the teacher, was more of a late bloomer than Brody, the student. It was also a little off putting how Carolyn would "school" Brody on things, like she was still the teacher and he was her student. Or like the people on Facebook who feel the need to correct the grammar of other people, including strangers. Still this was a good love story, if a little slow at times, and Carolyn and Brody seem good together.

Late Bloomer is a fresh take on the May/December romance. I have never really been a fan of those, but Ms. Lohr opened my heart and eyes to all the possibilities. When the student becomes the teacher both individuals realize they still have a lot to learn about life, love and new beginnings. Barbara Lohr gives readers what they want, a chance to relax and escape with some feel good fun.
