What if youth wasn't wasted on the young?
On the eve of his fortieth birthday, Ian Parker is looking for a reboot. He may be the proud owner of a trendy coffee shop in Austin called La Tazza Magica, but his love life has been MIA for years. During a trip to Denver with his best friend, Mark, Ian buys an enchanted chocolate from a mysterious candy storethen wakes up from a nap two decades younger. After the initial shock, Ian realizes a quirk of the universe has given him a second chance and, with Mark’s help, he devises a plan to start over.
With a new lease on life, Ian sets his sights on handsome architect Bartley James, a regular customer at La Tazza. He pursues Bartley as Ian’s twenty-one-year-old alter ego, Ryan, with decidedly unexpected results. Joining Ryan on his adventures are Matthew, the dreamy new barista, Jeremy, the geeky high-school math teacher, and Sam, the pizza delivery boy. Even as misunderstandings and expectations collide, Ian remains determined to right his past mistakes and find his off-ramp to happiness.

Great book! Brad does an amazing job with this latest read. Just like his others, I found it very difficult to put the dynamic book down.
Just as great as the others--I started reading and couldn't put it down. Some of the characters will be familiar (wink)I had no trouble at all picturing Ian asRyan--none at all. I absolutely loved the twists and turns. Mr. Boney is one of a handful of authors who can pack 600 opages of story in less than 200. Please don't make us wait so long for the next one!
