The climb to the top has not been easy for Amber, starting from an abusive childhood, then moving to prostitution in order to better herself.  Sometimes, the past and its secrets cannot lay buried; their ugly heads always rear at the most inopportune time.  For Amber they came in the form of her abusive father who is blackmailing her with some compromising pictures taken in her younger days.  She has to find the strength to stand up to her father for the sake of her new relationship with Denton who accepted her despite their age difference , and a soaring career in the Real Estate business.  Or will she choose to hightail it out of town and start all over again until her father finds her?

Love With A Younger Man is well planned and written, so much so that I wasn’t aware of the length.  I liked the fact that the story showcased a woman who was down and came to the top despite the tragedies encountered along the way.  It was not about a damsel in distress needing to be rescued by her knight, but true friends stepping up to the plate to help.  I did not believe the happy ending though; I can picture them a few months down the line on Dr Phil or TLC trying to hold onto the marriage (I realize these are fictional characters).
