Okay this one is exceptionally detailed (spoilery but I will *alert* as I go down, but proceed with caution). I KNOW we can figure it out for sure.

In fact, at first I thought I KNEW it (I still suspect I’ve read this one) except I am possibly mixing up the detail about the young guy at the “grocery store” with a movie that I loved (Timer), so I will continue searching. But maybe someone here knows?

P.S. I highly recommend THAT movie!!! :D

Mayday asks:

Hello I am hoping someone can help me find a specific book that was very likely written within the last 2-3 years. Unfortunately I cannot recall any of the title, author and character names.

Setting present day US. The heroine is a 40ish yr old divorcee who meets a 25 yr old intense/mature bad boy at a grocery store. She has two adult sons who do not live with her. She is a bit wealthy but not extravagant with wealth.

The 25 yr old hero, blonde and muscular has quite a past as he lived on the street since he was a youth and was trained to be an assassin. Hence his mature demeanor.

He met the divorcee heroine and dates her as a way to try to stop her from dating another man who is involved with his sister. (This sister and the other man are secondary characters in this book and have a sequel story. They get involved within this book and she gets pregnant.)

In this story the 25 yr old hero is actually protecting his sister who lives in a safehouse as a means to hide from her grandmother who has major political clout. The sister has information that would annihilate the grandmother’s career in politics – hence her protection.

Some scenes from the story include 25 year old driving a Jaguar to date divorcee heroine. He does not talk much on the date, very intense. He sporadically shows up in heroines life and sex happens. He disappears for weeks at a time and confuses heroine who is concerned about age difference.

During this time he is protecting his sister, unknown to heroine. Hero is very into the heroine and does not want her to date other men while he is gone.

At the end of the story, heroine, hero, sister all move to another city and live in a safehouse/farm.

The second story about the sister takes off from this point.

Hope someone can offer up a tip to the title or author please offer feedback. Perhaps the scenario with the grandmother trying to kill the granddaughter may ring a bell for the follow up story that would lead to the author!

Anyone know this one?
