Forty Candles is a short but rather amazing story centering around Chloe and Jack.

Chloe is a tortured woman that has endured two painful divorces, one between her parents when she was a young girl, and one when she was 25 years of age, with her own husband!

Jack is her childhood friend and her first boyfriend, who stayed beside her through all the hardships of her life even after they split up. He has loved her since the first time they had been together but Chloe is afraid to let go of her insecurities. She thinks she is incapable of feeling love and committing to a faithful relationship.

I loved the chemistry between the two heroes and the way the events unfolded.
It was a passionate story that I had expected to revolve around sex, but I am glad to admit that it did not. It was so much more, with quite realistic protagonists that dealt with real life problems.

I greatly enjoyed both the storyline and the way the author writes. I will definitely try more of her books, soon!

All in all, 5 stars for a great read that I deeply enjoyed!
