Deep Blue
by Kathleen Duhamel


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


GENRE:   Contemporary Romance


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:


“Barely-not-starving” Denver artist and cancer survivor Claire Martin has almost given up finding an older man with a youthful spirit when she meets charismatic New York soul singer Robert Silver of the legendary band Deep Blue. She soon learns that hero worship can be dangerous, especially when the object of her desire comes with a disturbing past.

Robert is smart and sexy with a self-deprecating sense of humor, but he’s also a man who has suffered from panic attacks, drug abuse, a well-publicized stint in rehab and the death of his wife, screenwriter Elaine Jordan. When his demons resurface on tour, jeopardizing his voice and the band’s future, Claire must decide if she’s willing to take the biggest risk of her life—betting her future on a troubled man.

Excerpt One:




My Review:

After surviving cancer, divorcing her cheating husband, and starting her own art business, 58 year old Claire Martin has another thing on her to do list. She wants to find an older man with a young spirit and have the love of a lifetime, even this late in life. During an art show Robert Silver, the lead singer of Claire's favorite band Deep Blue stops by her booth and chooses not only one of her paintings but her as well.

Robert is everything Claire has dreamed about in a man. He takes her places, they do things she could only dream of. He even asks her to marry him, which she says YES!! But then his world starts crashing down around his ears. I Clair strong enough to hold them both up?

This was a really good book. I loved the how Kathleen Duhamel brought all the characters together and made them true to life. The story as well as the relationship was a whirlwind but not hard to follow. I did listen to the audiobook and thought it was good. I do wish Laura Witek had of put a bit more feeling and emotion into the narration but it was still good.

  2. Finding an older man to fulfill all your needs isn't easy at any age, but at 58? Not that I've given up, you understand, but honestly, they're few and far between!
