Coke Solomon has lived a full life. He’s a retired army drill sergeant, so he is more than used to getting his way. And if he can’t have it his way? Well, let’s just say that’s never happened before…

At least not until Cora Maldonado walks into his life, demanding he fall in line, or she’ll find a way to make his life hell. He finds out fast that Cora marches to the beat of her own drum, and a lot of times that drum takes her farther away rather than closer to where he feels she needs to be.

He can’t stand it.

He wants her, and he has to have her.

It doesn’t matter that she’s twenty years younger than him, and has a father that would rather see him dead than have his baby girl anywhere near him. Nor does it matter that his ex-wife is highly offended that she’s been replaced with a much younger woman.

Despite the odds stacking against them, he’ll fight for what he wants.

His ex-wife, her father, and their age difference be damned.

Coke Solomon has lived his life. He’s a retired army drill sergeant, content to see his daughter grow up and just do his thing. His way. He has no desire to find a woman after divorcing his daughter’s mother.

Cora Maldonado is a loner. She has a very small group of friends, but would prefer to be home on a Friday night in the peace and quiet rather than out at a party.

When Cora decides she’s had enough of Coke’s noise, she marches on over, in her unicorn onsie, to tell him just that. Shocked by the sweetness of his young neighbor, Coke finds himself completely fascinated with her. Never one to back away from what he wants, Coke sets his sights on Cora and the rest is history.

One click now to find out what kind of disasters Coke’s ex wife can stir up? How does Coke’s daughter feel about her dad dating a girl that is almost the same age? How does Cora’s dad feel about it?

I’ve seen lots of reviews that comment on the age difference and yes there is a larger age difference but honestly, the character’s age is not a focal point of the story and can easily be ignored. Do not let that stop you from checking out this book.


I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
