He’s hot, young, and way off-limits... But he might be just what she needs to get over the past and on with her life.
Lisa Taylor’s life stalled after her divorce three years ago, and she never got it started up again. Now her shit-paying catalogue photography job is boring her to death, she can’t bear to look in the mirror, and she hasn’t had a man since her asshole ex left.
When a gorgeous younger man reappears in her life, he promises to be the solution to all those problems. Tempting as he is -- and god almighty, he is! -- taking what he offers could destroy what little she has left.

Julie Jaret delivers a realistic story with a twist. Combining the younger man/older woman concept with a carefully planned character empowerment and development makes for a powerful and sexy story. Realistic characters come with strong, individualistic personalities and the male protagonist has what an “old soul”, seeing through the lies of the main character. The novel’s emotional rise and falls throughout the novel rises into an unexpected climax and shifted into a bittersweet denouement. Despite not having the “expected” HEA (Happy Ever After) ending that most readers expect, Extreme Close-Up ended with a clean, happy ending that would be labeled “acceptable” in real life, though felt somewhat sad in context.
