I received a review copy
Connie Parker isn’t convinced by this falling in love lark. Falling hurts, you end up with bruises and scars.
She has the perfect answer: she’ll write about love instead. But what happens when the novel-in-progress describes more about Connie’s own dull existence than she wants to admit? And when will she realise that her hero is beginning to resemble her new best friend Maria – a woman who seems to turn every simple outing with their 3-year-olds into a fun-filled adventure for them all?
In trying to make sense of the puzzle of her life, Connie learns there is no perfect person. Just that person who’ll fit you perfectly.
Too Late…I Love You definitely wasn’t something I would have picked out on my own. I do like to branch out ocassionally and I’m so glad I did. This was a laugh out loud, passionate love story of a different kind.
The main character Connie is a stay at home Mom to her son Noah. She’s not afraid to admit that her son was an accident. She had only been with her boyfriend a short time until she became pregnant. Karl is a work a holic who doesn’t think he’s ready for a family yet but continues to provide for Connie and Noah. Unfortunately the two fight often and Karl has his eyes on another woman.
Connie and her best friend meet every week at a play group where they eventually meet Maria, the mother of a little girl named Alice. Connie thinks Maria is beyond perfect and is very surprised to find out she is a lesbian. The two become fast friends and soon realize they are falling for each other. It’s tough at first for Connie to come to terms on loving a woman but she eventually realizes love sees no boundries.
Without giving too much away, I will say there is some hilarious banter in here. Some of it is crude so it’s not for the faint of heart but I was literally laughing out loud at some of the things that came out of everyone’s mouth. The twist at the end completely took me by surprise. It was actually fantastic. For a book I would not have normally read, I really enjoyed this.
