I enjoyed this, but most of it wasn't a particularly happy book. Cherri is 22 and living with/taking care of her grandmother. Colin is 34 (I think), has his own restoration business and is/was a manwhore. He's fascinated with Cherri, but thinks she's too young for him and hasn't had time to live her life. His friend, Mike, who doesn't seem like a very good friend, warns him off Cherri. But, she's working at his restoration shop, painting items for him. They hook up. A bad thing happens. They get married. More bad things/feelings happen. Colin forgets all about Cherri being young and needing to live her life. More bad feelings. Colin's father, Magnus is a creepy pervy asshole. Problems resolve. Everyone's happy. I didn't really see the point of the ex showing up. That seemed a bit over the top, but I guess Colin had to prove his reformed manwhore ways?
