Julie Roseman has known since childhood that Rosemans are supposed to despise Cacciamanis. She’s never known exactly why...but she’s followed her family’s advice and avoided all Cacciamanis like the plague. Until she bumps into Romeo Cacciamani at a small-business conference—and realizes he’s sort of...sweet. Now, this unexpected relationship is blooming into something big. But wait until their families find out...
I started this audio the day before yesterday. It was a quick, smooth read.
I think more could have been done with the story; could have been deeper, in that there might have been more pov from the supporting characters. But other than that, I have no nits with it.
Julie's a woman just past sixty, who takes up with the son of a family her own people have had an ongoing feud with throughout the years. Their families are, of course, upset with this, but there's no stopping them.
I commend this author for allowing the reader to entertain the thought there could well be life after sixty. That 'old people' are still 'alive'. They are capable of feelings, both emotional and sexual and their relationship can be just as exciting as that of a much younger couple.
I would recommend the book as a short, easy read - something to take on an overnight trip.
