Really? At Your Age? by Jacqueline Diamond

Thanks to author Jacqueline Diamond for providing an advanced copy of her latest romance novel.

Release Date - July 16, 2020



Cody's a widow with frozen embryos available. The kicker is she's 52 now. The clock is ticking and an earthquake has her thinking she's waited far long enough. There's another issue. Her long-time crush and co-worker Ben's daughter offers to be the surrogate to her child. Whether she says yes or no, someone's going to get hurt.

As I started reading the book, I found it so hard to imagine being my age and wanting a child. As a result, I wasn't sure I'd be able to sympathize with Cody. I have my hands full with a parent with Alzheimer's, and her tantrums and agitation are worse than my children's tantrums ever were. I'm exhausted all of the time and just couldn't imagine starting with newborns at this age. I entered into Really? At Your Age? wondering if I'd be able to connect with the characters or not.

What happened was I found myself connecting with Cody's sister. Her sister seemed to have the same questions I did. As I connected with her, I found myself cheering Cody on. Her decisions may be different to me, but they were valid and I got it.

Really? At Your Age? is a unique romance. These are not your typical 20-something characters. The A Better Late Than Never romance series will target a new audience and is certain to be appealing with it's older characters and thought-provoking story lines.
