Lauren McKenna is a teacher in Dareville.
She has wanted Jake Marbury for a long time and is just
waiting to make her move.
Jake is a sixty year-old widower of one
year. He is still deeply saddened by the loss of his beloved
wife. Jake owns an organic market in town. When he decides
to open a second store he needs help running the first.
Lauren loses her teaching job in a
scandal and decides that working for Jake will not only pay
the bills but also allow her to be close to him. Lauren knows
what she wants, but Jake is confused. Is he willing to take a
second chance at love?
Daring Young Man has many moments of tenderness
as well as some very steamy scenes. Jake being constantly
referred to as an older man, especially by Lauren, is not
exactly sexy though. With her swinging friends and a full
sized battery operated boyfriend, Lauren is quite the wild
woman, which added to her incompatibility with Jake, though
the first time Lauren and Jake come together is incredibly
hot. Jake’s memories of his wife are very sweet and
heart-warming. I was pleased with the outcome of Daring
Young Man, but I found the flow to be more wild and
crazy than loving and passionate.
