Publisher's Summary

Twenty-three-year-old Ren Haynes returns home after graduating college with two goals - start his engineering career and claim the heart of his parents' 31-year-old divorced neighbor, Stacey Williams.

Stacey is nursing her broken heart and shattered ego. Not only did her ex-husband have an affair, he got the woman pregnant. Picking up the pieces of her life isn't easy, so when Ren taps into her need to feel desired again, she finds herself in a position she never imagined. 

Can Ren help to rebuild her confidence and convince her that age is just a number?

A Light and Sexy Listen

Overall 3.5 stars
Performance 4 stars
Story 3 stars

This was a sweet and sexy younger man/older woman romance. This is my first book by the author and though I did enjoy it, I do wish there would have been more back story and build up for Ren and Stacey. Even just a few glimpses into their earlier friendship/relationship within the last year or two would have been helpful to set the stage for what was to come. Instead, the story starts off with a bang (pun intended), and I felt like I was playing catch up with the emotions for the majority of the story.

I did appreciate that the author was realistic with her portrayal of this trope (the fears, concerns, challenges, and stigma) and found the chapter where Ren's mother confronted Ren and Stacey extremely moving and powerful. I also loved Ren's father and how supportive he was of his son. There wasn't too much external drama and though I liked that the story stayed focused on Ren and Stacey, it also meant that there wasn't much movement to the story/plot. I enjoyed both narrators, but Joe Arden really stole the show. He captured Ren's youthful vulnerability and sexy swagger so perfectly that I really looked forward to his chapters the most. Overall, this was a light and sexy listen.

Age ain't nothing but a number

This book was amazing. It follows Ren who is in love with Stacey who is 8 years his senior and his next door neighbor. Done with college and after finding Stacey now single after her divorce, Ren finally has his chance to be with Stacey. He knows it won't be easy to get her to see how perfect they are together, but love is never easy.
Stacey never realized that Ren had feelings for her. There are so many obstacles that they must face in order to be happy. Stacey just has to decide if loving Ren is worth it all. It's an amazing story showing how one man will not let anyone come between him and the woman he loves, that includes his parents.
The narrators gave the characters such life and had me hanging on to every word. I was not disappointed.

Nice One!!

It had been a while since I last listened to an audiobook. I already planned on starting listening to them again with my maternity leave coming up. And I was thinking it would be perfect to listen to more audiobooks when our baby girl is born. So when I saw a sign up to become a part of the Caffeinated PR Audiobook service it felt like destiny. Soon after signing up the sign up for ‘Let Me Love You’ came along and I was super excited when I received the email which allowed me to start listening right away.

In ‘Let Me Love You’ we meet Stacy Williams, a recently divorced thirty one year old. Stacy’s divorce has done a number on her. Her husband had an affair with a younger woman and has gotten her pregnant. Stacy wanted to start a family for years but her husband always said it wasn’t the right time. Now heartbroken she is slowly getting back on her feet. When her neighbors handsome twenty three year old son Ren Haynes moves back after finishing college she is surprised to find he is interested in more than just friendship with her. Ren has been in love with Stacy for years, and now she is divorced he is determined to make her see he is the one for her.

After I started ‘Let Me Love You’ I had my reservations about this story. I don’t really like stories that got a lot of sex in it right from the beginning. I don’t mind sex in a book at all, but there has to be romance for me to enjoy reading or listening to it. And in the beginning of this book I missed the romance. Sure I got that Ren was in love with Stacy. But Stacy’s attraction to Ren kind of felt like coming out of the blue. I also thought the whole age difference of eight years was not so much, but maybe that’s just me. Thankfully I kept going and started enjoying this book more and more. The connection between Stacy and Ren started to develop and I enjoyed listening to Ren’s pursued of Stacy. It was especially fun to read how Ren was determined to show Stacy how serious he was about them. And the way he faced his aggravating mother was pretty good.

This audiobook isn’t very long, which is a shame because I loved the two narrators Joe Arden and Samantha Cook. They definitely did a great job in narrating this book. I enjoyed listening to Samantha’s voice, but above all I loved listening to Joe Arden. His voice is just so nice to listen too and it made me want to keep on listening till the very end.

Overall this was a nice audiobook and the perfect one to get me back in the audiobook scene. It wasn’t perfect, but definitely made for a fun listen.

Sweet, Steamy and Romantic!

This was my first Jessica Jayne's book and won't be the last. I haven't read many books about an older woman and younger man and I believe this one is really great. It's sweet, steamy and romantic. The narration was well done and easy to listen. A perfect summer reading. I enjoyed my listening. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

First by this author and I loved it!

I love this audiobook, Joe Arden and Samantha Cook are fabulous narrators. This is an age gap book that will give you all the feels. Ren is a recent college graduate that has been crushing on his beautiful, married neighbor Stacey since he was a teenager. Now he’s out of college and she’s divorced and sparks fly. Ren is an only child with a mother that is a bit overbearing. She is also a dear friend to Stacey, so things become a little complicated. This is a well written book that I highly recommend.

Light, Sexy read

I really enjoyed the story and the narration. It was a nice change of pace from typical older man/younger women story line. 31 year old Stacy is picking up the pieces after a sudden divorce from a cheating husband. Ren is her 23 year old neighbor, just home from college.
Ren was amazingly sweet and pursued Stacy like gentleman, giving her the space she needed. Definitely a great story when you want a good, easy read.

Sweet but quick

Let me love you, starts with hot and steamy scenes, and while there is a fair amount of sexy parts throughout the story, It develops into a more fleshed our story from there. It had a fair amount of sweet moments, and a great premise for the plot. I wish it was a bit longer, and more developed plot wise overall because it felt a bit too quick moving from a storyline perspective for me. At times it felt like insta love even though it wasn’t because of how the story picks up and moves fast, maybe a prologue with more background would have well rounded it better? Despite that I really enjoyed the book. The characters seemed realistic and likable, and the narration was fantastically well done. I would recommend as a listen, especially if you are a fan of instalove or really sweet and swoony type of stories. I was given this audiobook from caffeinatedPR for my unbiased review.

The older woman

I liked this one. I took a bit of a chance on this book since I have never read anything written by Jessica Jayne and both of the narrators were new to me. It was a gamble that paid off. It is a rather quick read and I ended up listening to the bulk of it in a single day and found it to be very enjoyable.

Stacey is a thirty-one year old divorced woman who has know Ren for years since she lives next to Ren's parents. Ren is a twenty-three year old recent college graduate who has his eye set on his neighbor. Ren has spent time during the past several summers helping Stacey out around her house and they have a pretty close friendship but Ren wants more. A lot more. Stacey has some issues with the fact that she is older than Ren and she considers his mother to be one of her friends.

I liked Stacey and Ren and thought that they made a really nice couple. They know each other really well from the time before the start of this story and their personalities mesh really well. They have great chemistry together. There were times that Stacey wasn't sure she should pursue a relationship with Ren but there was never a question regarding whether she wanted him. It was nice to see her thought processes as she tried to figure things out. I loved how Ren knew what he wanted and was determined to make it happen. He stood up for their relationship and really was a good match for Stacey.

I thought that Joe Arden and Samantha Cooke did a great job with this story. I usually listen to audiobooks at regular 1x speed and I did find that felt a little slow when Samantha Cooke was reading. Once I increased the speed to 1.25x speed, the reading felt a lot more natural to me. I thought that both narrators were able to bring a lot of emotion to the story and made some scenes more intense. I liked the voices that each narrator used for the characters in the story. I would not hesitate to listen to more of both of their work in the future.

I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This was a nice quick listen that had a lot of feels and some heat. I thought that Ren and Stacey were great as a couple and I was excited to watch them figure out how to make things work. I look forward to reading more of Jessica Jayne's work in the future.

I received a review copy of this audiobook from the author via Caffeinated Services.
