MID LIFE LOVE: AT LAST by Whitney G. *Blog Tour Review, Author Interview & Giveaway*



If you ask me if Jonathan Statham makes me happy, I’ll say ‘Absolutely. He’s the man of my dreams and I can’t wait to marry him.’ If you ask me why my ex-husband Ryan is currently one inch away from me—staring into my eyes and pressing his hand against my cheek, I’ll say, ‘I have no fucking idea…’

Claire Gracen finally has the life she’s always wanted: A career she loves, a man who’s willing to do any and everything for her, and friends that show her the true meaning of the word ‘friendship.’

As she and Jonathan prepare to make the ultimate commitment to one another and plan the wedding of her dreams, she quickly realizes that the hurtful past she left behind in Pittsburgh is a lot closer than she thought.
Sexy, unpredictable, and as charmingly clever as ‘Mid Life Love,’ ‘At Last’ will captivate you from the first page and never let you go. 


Once the counseling session finally came to an end, we both shook Dr. Choate’s hand and said we’d be “in touch” about scheduling part two. As soon as the elevator doors opened, I rushed inside and pressed the “door close” button over and over—anxious to get far away from white sand and invasive notecards.
“What’s the rush, future wife?” Jonathan stepped directly in front of me and pressed my back against the wall. “Do you have another meeting to go to right now? Somewhere else where you plan on discussing our intimacy problems?”
“I never said we had intimacy problems…That was a mistake and you know it.”
“Hmmm.” He brushed his fingers against my necklace.
“I can’t believe you pushed me into telling him about our sex life.”
“He asked.”
“You didn’t have to tell him the truth.”
“I thought you wanted me to be honest.” He ran his fingers through my hair. “I’ve told you a million times that I don’t lie.”
“Well, why didn’t you tell him what I wrote down on that card?”
He slipped his hand underneath my skirt. “If you would like, we can go back up and I’ll happily tell him that my future wife wishes that my head was between her legs right now.”
I blushed and shook my head.
“Are you sure?” He tugged at my panties. “I’m not opposed to telling him that.”
“That’s okay…”
He lowered his mouth to my neck, taking his time to press gentle kisses into my skin as he wrapped his arms around my waist.
I looked up at the floor numbers that were flashing above the doors as we passed them by—Eleven, Ten, Nine, and pushed him away from me.
“We’re almost back in the lobby,” I murmured as I stepped to the other side.
“No. We’re not.” He hit the stop button and walked over to me, pressing me against the wall again. “I actually think we do have one huge intimacy problem, Claire.”
“Why is it that you can only be open with me about sex in text messages and notecards?”
“What are you talking about? That’s not—”
“You know exactly what I’m talking about.” He cut me off with a kiss and slowly hiked my skirt up to my stomach. “I always have to try and read your mind, or read between your little smart-ass comments when it comes to what you want…Why is that, Claire?”
“I…” I couldn’t focus when he looked at me like this, when he locked his eyes on mine and demanded answers that I didn’t have.
“If you like when I fuck you with my mouth, why don’t you ever say that when we’re at home?”
I bit my lip as he slipped a finger inside of me, as he held me steady with his other arm.
“Hmmm, Claire? I’m standing right here...Tell me what you want…”
“Jonathan…” I moaned; he was pressing his thumb against my clit, punishing it with slow, sensuous circles.
“You can’t tell me right now because you’d rather wait until you get to work and tell me in a text message?”
“Then tell me what you like…”
He closed the little space that was left between us, keeping his thumb busy, bringing his mouth close to my ear. “Tell me you love it when I fuck you with my mouth.”
“I do.”
“Say. It.”
I swallowed. “I love when you go down on me…”
He sighed and slowly pulled away from me, and I thought he was going to step over to the other side and hit the start button, but he spun me around so that I was facing the corner and gripped my waist. “You were right…We do need better communication.


Star Rating: 4 stars

Heat Rating: HOT!

**This is book #2 in the Mid Life Love series and you REALLY need to read book #1 to fully enjoy Mid Life Love: At Last.  Here is my 4.5 star review of book #1 Mid Life Love**

Mid Life Love: At Last  gave me the Jonathan that I have been missing since I finished Mid Life Love!  Man, he is a great book boyfriend; sexy, dominant and always gets his way.  I love that he sticks to his promises and never sways in his love for Claire.  

Whitney G. can write one hell of a sexy story!  Mid Life Love: At Last really took the heat up a notch and left my cheeks pink throughout the book.  What is great about this series is that you get an emotional love story but you also get a slap of reality in the mix of your happily ever-after fairytale.  Nothing is ever perfect and life somehow always tries to trip you up. Whitney G., does a great job giving the reader a taste of what Claire and Jonathan are like after they have been together a year, I love getting to re-visit with characters and this didn't disappoint.

Jonathan and Claire are preparing for their wedding and with that comes all kinds of drama.  I loved Jonathan, he stayed exactly like I wanted him to stay.  Claire, I wanted to slap around a bit.  The drama in this book was a bit over the top in places and Claire seemed to really change from book one.  However, in Claire's defense, she wanted everything to be perfect so their marriage could start on the right foot (I just wish she would have eased up on the gimme gimme gimme aspect of the "perfect wedding").

Mid Life Love: At Last gave me the ending that I wanted to see in this series.  I am left completely happy and will admit to tearing up in points.  Even through all the crazy ups and downs I hung on with a smile on my face.  Whitney G. never disappoints and if you are looking for a sexy story with a lot of heart this series is perfect for you!
