YOUNG AT HEART BLOG TOUR STOP:



HELLO FRIENDS! WE ARE A STOP ON THE YOUNG AT HEART BY KAY ELLIS BLOG TOUR TODAY! I ENDED UP REALLY LOVING THIS BOOK SO LET'S TAKE A LOOK! WE HAVE MY REVIEW, AN EXCERPT, BUY LINKS, AN AUTHOR BIO AND SOCIAL LINKS, AND EVEN A RAFFLECOPTER GIVEAWAY, SO LET'S GET STARTED!




THIS QUOTE GOES FOR BOTH OF THESE MEN! HERE IS MY REVIEW:


                             Young At Heart  by: Kay Ellis
                                                            reviewed by: Becky


Devon Alexander is a wealthy successful businessman. The world is his oyster. In his work life he is decisive and in control.
His private life is another matter.
There, he doesn’t know if he’s coming or going in his on-off relationship with Jesse Young, an unemployed aspiring model half his age.

Can Devon and Jesse overcome the obstacles and outside influences standing in their way? Can they leave behind their own fear and mistrust? Or will they be their own worst enemies? 




Ok, before I officially start this review, I have a confession to make: When I started reading this book, I was sure I would hate it because I hate cheating in a story, but I ended up LOVING it, because alas, all is not what it seems! So that said, don't let your mind be made up in the first chapters, because this book is wonderful!

I really loved this book, and as my first book by this author, this one assures I will be back for more. There are some things that made me mad in the first few chapters, but they are not what they seem, so keep reading, I am so glad I did!

Devon is a middle aged man who has let his mother rule his life for way too long, there were times when I wanted to slap him on the back of the head and say "Wake up man!", but it adds passion to the story, when the characters aren't perfect, and I love that!

Jesse is young, very young, but the things he has been through in his life make him seem so much older! He isn't perfect either, believe me, but you will see reading this book, that his love for Devon is real!

Can these two overcome the many obstacles they face, be together, and have the perfect quiet life they both dream of? Read the book and find out, and remember the best loves are the ones that overcome! Thank you Kay, for giving me a wonderful love story that exceeded all my expectations!

NOW HERE IS THE PROMISED EXCERPT:

“You’re late.”
So much for a warm welcome. “I didn’t realize we had set a time.”
“Arthur prepared lunch,” Erica said, with a pointed look at her elegant wristwatch. “All gone to waste now, of course.”
“I’m sorry.” He was already regretting being there. It was always the same, Erica asking him to come out to the house just so she could give him a hard time. So she could moan about anything and everything and leave him feeling like a complete failure. “I slept in late.”
“Alone?”
Devon looked at her sharply. “Actually, yes. Why do you ask?”
“No reason.” She smiled coolly. “Although Antonio did mention you were going to dinner last night. I thought maybe he introduced you to someone more....”
“More what, Mother?”
“Suitable.”
“Than Jesse, you mean? You’d rather I was with some chinless wonder, obsessed with money and material belongings? Because that’s all Antonio’s friends have to offer.”
She crossed the room to stand by the French window, staring out over the immaculately kept lawn, another of Arthur’s jobs. It was written all over her face. She knew who Antonio was setting him up with last night and she obviously approved. Maybe it had even been her suggestion.
“Have you seen him?”
“Who?”
“That boy.”
He smiled softly, remembering the feel of Jesse’s body pressed against his. Throwing back his shoulders, he faced Erica defiantly. “I love him.”
“Oh, don’t be so stupid.” Erica snapped.
A stony silence filled the room as Arthur entered bearing a silver tray. He placed it on the glass coffee table and glanced warily from mother to son. Noting their icy expressions, he backed out of the room again without speaking. One of the reasons he made such a good butler was his unerring ability to keep his head down and mind his own business.
“Shall I pour?” Erica asked, reaching for the handle of the teapot.
“I mean it, Mother.” Devon was not about to let her ignore what he had said. “I love Jesse.”
“No.” Erica spoke so calmly it was chilling. “I won’t allow it.”
“You won’t allow it?” he echoed faintly. “Are you serious?”
Putting the teapot back on the tray with more force than was necessary, Erica glared at him coldly. “I put up with it when you decided you had no desire to be with a woman. I put up with the bitter disappointment of knowing you will never give me grandchildren. And I put up with the embarrassment of entertaining God only knows how many men you’ve dated, but not this time. This time, I will not put up with you keeping this boy in our lives. He’s scum, Devon, a dirty little gold-digger who’s only interested in your money. I won’t stand for it. I will do whatever it takes to stop him ruining your life.”

NOW SEE WHAT I MEAN ABOUT DEVON'S MOM RULING HIS LIFE! UGH THAT WOMAN IS EVIL!! HERE IS A LITTLE MORE ABOUT KAY ELLIS:

Kay Ellis lives in rural Oxfordshire in the UK, where she’s mum to two beautiful daughters. From an early age, she has written stories, with a sole readership of one – her mum, Sylvia. In 2013, someone suggested Kay enter a competition on national television to find a new ‘racey reads’ author. Much to Kay’s surprise, she made it to the final three, and although she didn’t win, the high praise received for her work gave her the confidence to start submitting to publishers.
When not writing, Kay enjoys reading, eating out and the theater.
