Oh.my.gawd. This is a seriously wonderful story! I am not usually into age-gap stories. It’s not that I don’t understand that love happens despite social conventions (well, duh!), and it’s not even the icky mother-daughter porn images. For me, it’s that I extrapolate. Twenty-four and forty-one is different; years later, sixty and seventy-seven would be difficult. I always want an HEA to really last a long, long time. Health and libido issues that will be inevitable with age…I just can’t get my head around two people aging at such different rates.
But, back to this story….the age differences make sense, or at least work well here. For 24-year old Emily, coming out to herself is made easier by confiding in an older (yet hot!) woman who assures her that being lesbian is ok. For 41-year old Marianne, she is ready to begin life again, just as Emily becomes ready to begin life again. It works….surprisingly well.
“Can five days change your life? Once, a split second had changed her life, so yes, five days could definitely do the trick.” Generally, insta-love is artificial, and only works in an erotic short-story. In “Summer’s End”, as short as the book is, we have enough time to learn the back stories of the characters that we believe in their attraction, affection…and even their love. I was really struck by Marianne’s back story. How much of our lives are spent avoiding mistakes, and when a mistake is made, how much of the rest of our lives are defined by one mistake? After all the good choices we make, why are people so willing to pounce on a mistake? I was so glad to see that even after a terrible consequence of a mistake, Marianne is ready to accept love in her life again.
When Marianne says “You were right all along, We have to try.”, I just want to slap the authors of longer books, who use the extra words to avoid communication and effort, rather than recognize that women seeking love in their life really are more willing to try than run. Yes, I’m looking at you, Maggie Cummings with your damned frustrating “Serious Potential”.
There are many more great lines in this book. Referring to her noticeably erect nipples under a t-shirt, Marianne says “My fault entirely, They’re not usually so… disobedient.”. Errr…WOW!
Words get considerably less subtle, and the heat level of “Summer’s End” is very hot, and very enjoyable!!
5* for this great book!
