Veronica Cruz has been through hell and back. After disconnecting with the world two years ago to be at the side of her dying mother, she’s left alone, unemployed, overweight, and feeling a decade older than her twenty-eight years. When her best friend coaxes her into joining the local gym to ditch her depression and rejuvenate her life, she meets Noah. Assigned to help Veronica lose weight, Noah is everything she expected a young trainer to be—perfectly chiseled, supportive and motivating. Add to that, he’s incredibly sexy. He’s everything she’s ever looked for in a man. What she least expected was for him to fall for her, but he has. There's just one glaring problem: Noah is eight years younger.

Noah Quintanilla has his eye on a boxing title—someday. Down for a few months with an injury, his maintenance-boy pay at 5th Street Gym won't cut it. He’s finally given the opportunity to train. The catch? His trainee is an out-of-shape woman with a free week pass. Taking on the challenge, Noah stumbles into one of the closest friendships he’s ever known, and before he knows it, he’s in love. But Veronica’s not having it—the age difference is too much. Their platonic relationship means having to watch her date other men—something that would make him crazy. Believing he's the man for her, Noah sets out to prove that age is but an illusion, and there's more to him than just a number.

    This story wasn't bad, I felt myself really rooting for Noah. I do have a few dislikes about the book. 1. The author made it seem like Veronica was so fat and disgusting at 167 lbs. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? Get a grip. 2. What 28 year old doesn't know what an iPhone can do? I mean it really felt like the author was trying to make the age gap a bigger issue than what it really was. Veronica or "Roni" really irritated me at times too with how wishy washy she was being. But all in all I enjoyed the quick read.

    Noah is extremely moral and has a lot of integrity. Which is sexy as it is but mixed with his possessive nature and fierce loyalty, he became the dream man for any woman. Roni was sweet and like-able. Great great read!

    I enjoyed reading the first book in the 5th Street set. It was a book I couldn't put down until its completion due to the mystery of what would happen next with each set of characters. I definitely plan to read all about Gio!

    ..the sexual tension too long and it sucked the passion out with all her doubt. Ended up fizzling instead of sizzling. Still an ok book though.
