Veronica Cruz has been through hell and back. After disconnecting with the world two years ago to be at the side of her dying mother, she’s left alone, unemployed, overweight, and feeling a decade older than her twenty-eight years. When her best friend coaxes her into joining the local gym to ditch her depression and rejuvenate her life, she meets Noah. Assigned to help Veronica lose weight, Noah is everything she expected a young trainer to be—perfectly chiseled, supportive and motivating. Add to that, he’s incredibly sexy. He’s everything she’s ever looked for in a man. What she least expected was for him to fall for her, but he has. There's just one glaring problem: Noah is eight years younger.
Noah Quintanilla has his eye on a boxing title—someday. Down for a few months with an injury, his maintenance-boy pay at 5th Street Gym won't cut it. He’s finally given the opportunity to train. The catch? His trainee is an out-of-shape woman with a free week pass. Taking on the challenge, Noah stumbles into one of the closest friendships he’s ever known, and before he knows it, he’s in love. But Veronica’s not having it—the age difference is too much. Their platonic relationship means having to watch her date other men—something that would make him crazy. Believing he's the man for her, Noah sets out to prove that age is but an illusion, and there's more to him than just a number.
Couldn't stop reading! Great story.. can't wait to read the rest of the 5th street books now
Simpering stale and dull
This story had potential, but I just couldn't get to grips with the character of Roni. She was so insecure and indecisive all the way through the book and at no point gave herself or Noah any credit. Nothing really happened in the plot and there was no real story to follow, just 300 pages of "oooohh, will we get together?" I don't normally leave bad reviews but this was really disappointing.
Really enjoyed this book couldn't put it down read it in a day the characters were great would highly recommend if you like HEA :)
