Dawn Botstein is doing just fine after her divorce, thank you very much.

She’s got her yarn store to run, her house to herself for the first time in her life, and no use for men anymore. That is until the hottie silver fox who walks into her store turns out to be her old high school crush—the guy who rejected her 30 years ago.

No way is she going to lose her head over him this time, no matter how well he wears that salt-and-pepper lumberjack beard. Okay, so he’s the opposite of her ex in every way, and his attention gives her a thrill she thought she’d never feel again. She’s not risking her heart again.

Mike Pilota is having a mid-life crisis.

Only instead of buying a red sports car he can’t afford and dressing like a 25-year-old who’s time-traveled from the 1990s, he quit his job after his second divorce to move closer to his recently widowed mother.

He didn’t expect to run into Dawn again, but as soon as he lays eyes on her he’s utterly smitten. So he sets out to make up for past mistakes and prove he can be the kind of man she deserves.

But is it too late for second chances? Or will these two lonely hearts find a way back to each other?

Mad About Ewe is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #1 in the Common Threads series, Seduction in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe.



Such a sweet read by Susannah Nix! In Mad About Ewe, we have a second chance at love romance and with an older couple. One of my favorite things about this book is just how real and relatable their story was. There are several topics that each reader can connect with from divorce, sickness, insecurities about dating again, and being intimate. And that’s just the shortlist.

I liked that there was a little bit of history between both of the characters stemming from their high school days. Ah, high school … we’ve all been there and remember those days of crushing on someone hard. And that’s what we have here, having a crush, putting yourself out there and the dreaded rejection.

Now to present day we get to see how they both trek their lives and various obstacles they now face.

All around such a sweet story of these two navigating their lives, the character development was great and the romance seemed fitting for this story. Definitely recommend!

If this is your first Susannah Nix book, please check out her romcom STEM series, Experimental Marine Biology is my favorite from that series!
