Just when Lila has resigned herself to the fact the most exciting chapters of her life are over, a blast from the past walks into her bakery. Six feet of gorgeousness named Gavin drops by as she’s closing up shop. They were once high-school sweethearts and it’s been more than twenty-five years since they’ve seen each other, but time hasn’t diminished the sweet heat between them. Soon enough the sparks—and the frosting—begin to fly.

As they rediscover each other’s bodies, it’s clear Gavin’s no longer a boy as he shows Lila the man and skillful lover he’s become. Though Lila knows this whirlwind romp could be an act of insanity, his touch unleashes the sensual woman she’s forgotten she could be. And she thinks—maybe—she has one more leap in her.


Leap is a wonderful story about second chances. Lila and Gavin set the pages on fire with their love scenes and imaginative love play. It was interesting to see that neither character had too many self-conscious moments about what they used to look like twenty-five years ago. They both just lived in this moment and for each other now.

This quick romantic story will have you glued to the pages as you learn more about Lila and Gavin. We find out what happed between them and a little about what their lives have been like since they last saw each other.

The end comes all too soon, but leaves the reader happy and hopeful for the couple and what life might bring.

Based on this story, I would seek out other creations by Cindy Jacks.
