Has Jane accidentally fallen for the decoy? Sometimes there is only one thing to do when you get dumped—make the ex jealous with someone new. Which is exactly what Jane plans to do with Ben, an older, handsome man who has agreed to act as her new love interest.
When Ben meets Toby, Jane's unruly dog, he offers to help her train him. But as Ben helps Jane gain control of her dog, he realizes he's lost control of his feelings, and he's beginning to fall for the much younger woman.
Suddenly, Jane can't seem to remember what she ever saw in her ex. All she can focus on is the way Ben makes her feel each time he kisses her. But now the ex has decided he wants her back, and he's willing to play dirty to make it happen.
This was a fun, happy, quick read! Ms. Wolfe did a fine job detailing the life Jane lives prior to meeting Ben as well as his effect on her life. Her ex is “the guy we all love to hate” and his characterization is spot-on.
The character of Francesca, Jane’s new best friend, becomes more interesting as the story progresses; I would like to see her get her own story.
The plot progresses at a nice, even pace without any serious deviations to detract from the story of Ben and Jane. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fast bit of older man/younger woman romance.
