When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he waswell, other than the obvious.  Young, gorgeous, successful, smart.  Did I mention young?  If I did, it bears repeating.  Ford Donovan was too young for me.

Let’s back up to how it all started.  My best friend decided I needed to start dating again.  So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating siteone that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date.  Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration.  The profile wasn’t supposed to go live.  Another point that bears repeatingit wasn’t supposed to.

Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging.  He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends.  But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to one date onlymy first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart.  I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.

Though, you know what they saycuriosity kills the cat.

My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.
Ford was seated at the bar.  When he turned around, he took my breath away.
His sexy smile nearly melted my panties.
Buthe looked so familiar.
As I got closer I realized why.
He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s summer home.
The boy next door.
Only nowhe was all man.
I hadn’t seen him in years.
I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me.
Which I did.  Until summer came.
And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year?  

Valentina is 37 years old. Divorced for 18 months now. Time to get back on the dating horse her bestie thinks..... and accidentally on purpose signs her up for a dating site. Where Val starts chatting with Ford. 25 year old Ford!
He's sweet, funny, hot ... and so much more. But she can't date this boy! Especially once they find out that Ford was the boy next door at the family's summer house in Montauk! 😱
But Ford is not giving up yet.
Let the fun times begin ... 


Again with the COVER! #BackPorn! What is it with Vi and Penelope and their covers?? Where do they find these guys?!?! Jeez! 😋🔥

The story was adorable and funny and flirty and sparky and sexy. With a few sad things thrown in.
I loved reading it.
I just adored Ford and Valentina.
I also wouldn't mind reading a book about Eve and Tom.

This was a great romance. Great cast. Beautiful location. Perfect to dream yourself away to Montauk for a few summer hours!

ALL GROWN UP was an adorable & funny & sexy & moving second-chance-at-love-and-happiness-cougary-age-gap-romance! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Ford - this one is so MINE! 😋

ARC received for an honest review

Woohoo another Vi Keeland novel has hit my kindle!  Happy dance!

And what is it with Vi's hot AF covers.  I mean, hellloooo #backporn!

This is my second older-woman-hot-younger-man book I have finished this week.  Gives all us old ducks a bit of hope lol. It's all "How Valentina got her groove back"

Ford and Valentina's story is fun, flirty and sexy.  There are also a few sad moments thrown in too.

Now, this book was not good for my diet, as every time I read about Montauk, I think of all the Montauk Bake Shoppe and all it's delicious goodies that I keep hearing about lol

All Grown Up is one of those books that I adored from the first word to the last.  I didn't want to put this one down, staying up way too late and getting up early, just so I could fit another chapter in.

Thank  you Vi Keeland for giving us Ford... oh, and Valentina!
