Title: Mid Life Love: At Last (Mid Life Love, #2)
Author: Whitney Gracia Williams
Tour Host: Jacqueline’s Reads
Blog Tour (Nov 18 – 24th)
If you ask me if Jonathan Statham makes me happy, I’ll say ‘Absolutely. He’s the man of my dreams and I can’t wait to marry him.’ If you ask me why my ex-husband Ryan is currently one inch away from me—staring into my eyes and pressing his hand against my cheek, I’ll say, ‘I have no fucking idea…’
Claire Gracen finally has the life she’s always wanted: A career she loves, a man who’s willing to do any and everything for her, and friends that show her the true meaning of the word ‘friendship.’
As she and Jonathan prepare to make the ultimate commitment to one another and plan the wedding of her dreams, she quickly realizes that the hurtful past she left behind in Pittsburgh is a lot closer than she thought.
Sexy, unpredictable, and as charmingly clever as ‘Mid Life Love,’ ‘At Last’ will captivate you from the first page and never let you go.

I absolutely adored this book! I really liked Mid Life Love, so I figured this one would not disappoint. I have read some books lately that were second in the series that weren't so good, so I was concerned. However, this one did not disappoint!! I was hooked from chapter 1 and finished within a couple of hours. The characters in Mid Life Love are very likable, especially Jonathan Statham! He makes me swoon!
I felt like I was on a roller coaster through most of this story, one minute my heart was bursting with the swoon worthy moments, and then my heart would jump into my throat with anticipation of what was going to happen. Claire's ex decides to show up and he really causes a stink for Claire and Jonathan. Jonathan's security team have been intercepting mail from Ryan to Claire and Jonathan hopes to figure out why he all of a sudden is trying to talk to Claire.
I was very emotional towards the end of this book, I cried at some parts even. Whitney has an ability to make you fall hard for her characters, and I can't wait to read more from this author in the future!! I give 5 heart warming stars! Oh and the excerpt for Hayley's story about broke my heart! So I'm really excited for that one!!
As soon as he was gone, I gained mobility again and threw my dust-wand down on the floor. I headed behind the counter, pressing the button that made the glass panel drop down and block anyone from coming any further; I didn’t want to take any chances on him returning minutes later.
I locked myself in the bathroom and ran cold water in the sink, splashing my face over and over again.
The mere thought of Ryan could still light a bitter flame within me, but seeing him? In person? That was a damn wildfire, and I wasn’t sure how long it would take to put it out.
I couldn’t believe his audacity—to actually show up and attempt to have a regular conversation with me, to act like I would give him the time of day.
What the fuck does he even want?
There was a knock at the door, but I didn’t answer it. I couldn’t. My body was shaking and my thoughts were consumed with rage and anger.
Why would he even show up here? He knows I HATE him…
“Claire?” Jonathan’s voice was on the other side of the door.
“Yes?” I snapped out of my trance and unlocked it.
“Why are you in here? And why is your face wet?” He grabbed a towel off the rack and softly pressed it against my cheeks. “Are you hot?”
“No…I’m…” I hesitated.
“We can reschedule the appointment.” He wrapped his arm around my waist and walked me back out front.
“I’ll let her know we can come another day. You don’t look like you’re feeling well.”
“I’m not…Ryan was just here.”
His body suddenly stiffened, and he looked down at me with his jaw clenched. “Your ex-husband Ryan?”
“What did he want?”
“I don’t know…I told him to leave. I didn’t want to talk to him.”
“Good.” His eyes softened a bit, but I could tell he was upset. “How does he know where you work?”
“I don’t know…” Caroline and Ashley knew better than to discuss me with Ryan, just like they knew better than to discuss him with me. The few mutual friends we shared back in Pittsburgh only knew tidbits of my new life—nothing major, and they would never share any information with him.
“Do you know why he would bother coming to San Francisco?”I shook my head. There was nothing here for him.
“Hmmm.” He pulled me close and kissed my hair. “I’ll make sure he never bothers you again.”
I wanted to ask, “How?” but I knew he would handle it. I leaned against him and sighed as he led me over to the passenger side of his car.
“Since you’re finally leaving work on time today, what would you like for dinner?” He revved up the engine and looked over at me.
“That’s implied.” He grinned. “We can order something in.”
He pulled off and sped onto the highway, making me smile at how perfect my life seemed right now, how everything I wanted and needed was sitting right next to me in this car.
As I looked out my window and watched the city disappear in the distance, I tried not to think about Ryan’s visit, but I couldn’t help it.
Outside of scheduling time to see our daughters, Ryan hadn’t bothered me any other year that I’d been living here. He knew not to, and I didn’t need my painful past colliding with my perfect present. At all.
It has to be something really serious for him to come here…No, fuck him. It doesn’t matter what it is…
