Publisher's Summary

Solene Marchand, the 39-year-old owner of an art gallery in Los Angeles, is reluctant to take her daughter, Isabelle, to meet her favorite boy band. But since her divorce, she's more eager than ever to be close to Isabelle. The last thing Solene expects is to make a connection with one of the members of the world-famous August Moon.

But Hayes Campbell is clever, winning, confident, and posh, and the attraction is immediate. That he is all of 20 years old further complicates things. What begins as a series of clandestine trysts quickly evolves into a passionate and genuine relationship. It is a journey that spans continents as Solene and Hayes navigate each other's worlds: from stadium tours to international art fairs to secluded hideaways in Paris and Miami.

For Solene, it is a reclaiming of self, as well as a rediscovery of happiness and love. When Solene and Hayes's romance becomes a viral sensation, and both she and her daughter become the target of rabid fans and an insatiable media, Solene must face how her romantic life has impacted the lives of those she cares about most.

Contains mature themes.

You will never be the same!

It took me 3 solid months to get through the book hangover on this one! And it was worth every single minute. I don't even think I can put into words how amazing this book is. Do yourself a favor and listen to it... then prepare to be blown away!

Best Audiobook ever!

By far the best audiobook I've ever listened to! Robinnes emotions came through in each character in so many different ways. I'm not generally into audiobooks and have only ever listened to two, this was one of the two. Robinne set the bar extremely high and I can honestly say I don't know if any other audiobook will top hers.

Beautiful and Emotional

I loved this powerfully emotional, swoony story. The book really left me torn up and emotionally raw. So many ups and downs. The audiobook was beautifully narrated by the author. She really helped me connect to the story with her amazing storytelling!

Best Audiobook I've listened too!

Robinne's performance of her book is literally the BEST I've ever heard. Her ability to seamlessly become so many characters is nothing short of amazing. You will literally forget it's only being narrated by 1 person. All this on top of being the best book I've read of 2018. It was so good that I purchased the Audiobook after having already read the book. LOVE LOVE LOVE! 5 STARS!

Gutted in the best way.

The book gutted me and the audio even more. To hear the story in Robinnes’s beautiful voice and her great accents made my heart break over and over again. This is one of the best love stories highlighting ageism and the strength of woman. Every part of it is worth the journey.

Beautiful, amazing and gut wrenching story

Wow!!! The narration starts slowly, almost on autopilot, a bit detached. But, as the story unfolds, so does Robinne's voice, like unfolding a flower. She takes us on amazing journey of the heart and with it heartbreak. So moving, so vulnerable, so emotional, so beautiful. I felt all the emotions she was betraying.The story is breathtaking and her narration was as well. In the end, it is a love story. A love story that age can't deny. The story though heartbreaking, is so hopeful and life affirming. Love is not finite, all we need is to allow. Thank you Robinne!!!

Keeping you wanting more & more of Solene & Hayes.

The audiobook was everything I imaged it would be and so much more. Everything I read in the book and imagined characters sounded for the voices, the descriptions and more were all truly captured by Robinne's voices. Through all of Solene and Hayes happy and sad moments you keep rooting for relationship. Even in end your left feeling and wanting more for characters. You want them to still be together and have there happily ever after. As we know life isnt easy and see you that for them, but you still hope for them through it all. Recommend this audiobook to everyone.
