    One thought on “Extreme Close-Up”

    1. I picked this book up on a recommendation from a friend. It is a quick read, but don't let the cover fool you, there is some great unexpected stuff in this book. First there is a taboo about their relationship - I am not going to spoil it for you with what! As a reader it was really refreshing to see that not only the young (NA set) go through life changing events and still need a boost in confidence. There is a sweetness to their relationship in which both have for years seen deeper things in e [...]

    2. Someone told me that all stories have already been told – the trick is finding new and interesting ways to tell them.Extreme Close-Upbegins with a rather common storyline. An older woman falls for a very off limits younger man. It is the telling of the story and the details that make it unique. Ms. Jaret manages to create a believable, yet very erotic romantic fantasy. The evolution of Lisa and Brady’s relationship is very realistic. It begins with the typical “This can’t happen” feeli [...]

    3. Really enjoyed this book. This was this was Lisa's Story a divorced women and a photographer who thought so very little of her body. Thinking she is to fat and not sexy at all. Braden who lives around the corner whom she has know most of his life shows up one day to help with her lawn and watch over her while her son Jake is away at camp. He used to baby Lisa's son Jake when he was little. What Lisa did not know is he has fantasized about her for years. Braden shows Lisa just how beautiful and d [...]

    4. 5 Mouth Watering Toe Curling Stars Wow where to start on this book!!! Julie Jaret has written a phenomenal story about a 40 something year old lady who has in recent years been divorced. Most romance/erotic books today are about young gorgeous perfectly fit 20 something year olds. This is a refreshing story that so many readers in this genre will be able to relate to on different levels. Divorce, middle age, identity issues, career questions and so much more.Julie has written a lovely story abou [...]

    5. Oh my! I really enjoyed this read, I could have actually kept on reading so much more. Mrs Taylor, first name Lisa is a divorcee with a 15 year old son called Jake, who is currently at camp, while Lisa is trying to make ends meet to pay the bills, as her ex husband is late in his child payment, he's an asshole to be honest, so I won't even bother giving you his name. Lisa is a photographer and obviously takes on any jobs that come along no matter how dull and boring. Her best friend, called Nata [...]

    6. I won this book from a Facebook takeover and I am so glad I did. Not only is the writing excellent, but it wasn’t what I expected and that’s a good thing.If you are expecting a typical Cougar or even older woman with some self-esteem issues gets hot, confident young man with the cookie cutter plot then you will be completely disappointed. It is completely refreshing to have an author who isn’t afraid to bring something a little new, a little different to the erotic romance genre.The book s [...]

    7. ***Copy given in exchange for an honest review***Ever lost yourself to self doubt? Stuck on the non stop roundabout of the mundane and habit? Meet our leading ladydivorced three years ago as her husband left her for the family friend (think Jerry Springer) in a dead end soul sucking job that just about covers the bills, with the bitter aftertaste of a failed marriage flavoring her every thought. She is just past forty and has retained every negative comment ever made about her so she can no long [...]

    8. 3.5 STARS!I am really mixed about what I want to say in this review and that doesn't happen to me often. I liked this book but the ending left me confused (mouth hanging open and all) and wanting a better resolution. This book was full of humor, funny one-liners, sexual tension, sexy times, naughty talk, and one seriously twisted relationship.This is Lisa's story. I like to this of this book as "How LISA got her groove back." After a crappy divorce with her cheating ex-husband, Lisa is looking t [...]

    9. This is my first book by Julie and may I say I am now a fan girl.Lisa has recently been through a difficult and embarrassing divorce. She is left to regain her dignity, promote her struggling photography business and attempt to place herself back on the dating scene. This may be difficult when she doesn't see herself as an attractive sexual woman anymore.Then we have Brayden. He was once the babysitter of Lisa's son. He appears back in her life and things begin to become different between them. [...]

    10. 3.6 StarsI liked this book but at the end I was left hanging out to dry and wondering what the hell just happenedI loved Braden in this story. He was hot, funny, and sweet at the same time. But you really don't get to understand a whole lot about him. Lisa is an older woman who thinks she is not good enough for anyone let alone Braden. She feels she is caring a lot of extra weight. Can Braden convince her differently? A lot of push and pull in the story which keeps you interested but the end tot [...]

    11. Well wow word of warning. Read this book somewhere secluded, I took this with me to Read while I waited for an appointment. Big mistake, as I was blushing a older ladyasked what I was reading. I looked up and she asked again then said if it made me blushlike that she needs to read it. Totally still blushing I told her. So to say this is one hot sexybook is not an understatement. This is a story about a women on the way to realizingthat she is sexy and her ex was totally wrong and all it took was [...]

    12. From the very first page I was hooked. The author dropped me into a real world of emotional tug of war. I felt for Lisa and rode all the emotions she was going through. The story was tense, funny, steamy, sizzling, seductive, and oh, my so much more. The interaction between Lisa and Braden was fantastic. I loved how he loved her. I love the author's voice, her writing, the way it flowed with ease, and how she kept me turning the page. While the elements were certainly erotic, the message of life [...]

    13. Extreme Close-up was so refreshing and fun. We have Lisa, a forty-one-year old divorcee and her twenty-three-year old neighbor, also her son's former babysitter. Brady, now Braden, is all grown up, and the intensity that always intrigued Lisa in the past is aimed solely in her direction. Lisa has a lot of doubts, obviously about the age difference and her negative body image. She's most definitely not the pursuer, but luckily for her, Braden is not easily dissuaded and he is not having her reaso [...]

    14. Summary:Sometimes life after divorce can be so so good.According to Lisa, she is too fat, too saggy, and no longer desirable. She doesn’t realize that the boy down the street, Braden, has grown up, is no longer a boy, and will stop at nothing to get his hands all over Lisa. She knows it can never be anything more than a friendly relationship, or can it? Lisa’s ex-husband is an asshole and never treated her the way she deserved to be treated, especially according to man-boy Braden. At twenty- [...]

    15. I found this as recommended by one of my good read friends I wasn't too sure about it when I looked at the cover and also read about the book, but it intrigued me from what was written in reviews I am glad that I did give it a chance!! It was a short read, and some really good things in this book and some pretty steamy sex scenes I might add The author did a fabulous job with the 'older woman' with 'younger man' relationship (if you want to call it that) Lisa is divorced, single mother who strug [...]

    16. I began reading the book last night, picked it up this morning, and finished it before 10 am…That's how great Extreme Close-Up was for me.I went into this book expecting a fun and flirty story, and Ms. Jaret delivered. What I didn't expect was the underlying message of self-acceptance that came through loud and clear. Myself being a woman who is nearing the age of forty (Lord, did I just type that?!?) and one who has had children, we all go through days of wishing we were younger and wishing t [...]

    17. This wasn’t at all what I expected, and you have to appreciate that in a literary world where everything’s being done and rehashed 1,000 times over. I went into this read expecting a scorned woman finding new and more meaningful love with a younger man, and in a way that’s true. Lisa’s husband ripped her heart out and left her lonely, and when Braden came back into her life he was the perfect breath of fresh air. But, here’s the rub…Braden was her son’s friend and almost two decade [...]

    18. Lisa can’t believe the day she is having. She pays the bills (just barely!) by photographing office supplies for catalogs and to top it all off, she feels every year of her forty-one years. But finding her son’s childhood hero cutting her lawn one morning changes her perception of love, of life and of herself.“As your lawyer and best friend, it’s my expert opinion that you should totally hit that.” She looked at her friend and snorted, “Right. You’re insane.” “Eye for an eye, [...]

    19. I received a complementary copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.This story was fantastic and I absolutely LOVED it! In Extreme Close-Up we meet Lisa who is a 40ish divorced mother with one son. She has been divorced for two years but not dated and thinks her body is unattractive due to the ten pounds she kept on after having a baby - 15 years ago! Lisa is a photographer with her own business where she struggles to earn enough to pay the bills. Her son is away at camp so an old f [...]

    20. Click here to read my entire review!What I Loved:I really appreciated that the protagonist in this book wasn’t young, but was a 40 something year old mother of a teenage boy and as asshole for an ex-husband. I love that it took a very young and very hot man to make her wake up and finally see her own value. The sex scenes in this book were HOT! I was definitely left a little flushed after some of those scenes and I have to thank Julie Jaret for that very much. I also really loved that this st [...]

    21. I was given an e-copy of Extreme Close-up in exchange for an honest review. Lisa's in a place in her life where she never expected to be. She's been divorced for 3 years, her ex-husband is now married to someone who was a very good friend to her. Her professional photography career is stifling her creativity. And her 15 year old son is off at baseball camp, leaving her alone for the summer. But one lawn mowing hottie (where can I get one of those for myself?) is about to change everything for he [...]

    22. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.In this hot little ditty we meet; Lisa, a forty-something divorcee, who is struggling to make her career work and lives inside a little emotional bubble and Braden, the twenty-something hottie who is trying to figure out what to do with his life. Lisa and Brady have known each other for a long time and they reconnect one summer while he is taking care of her lawn. This was a one sitting book for me. It flowed quickly, the story was engaging a [...]

    23. I was intrigued when I initially read the synopsis for Extreme Close-Up but when I saw the cover yeah, I was a little put off. Thank goodness I overlooked the cringe-worthy cover because this was a totally enjoyable read. I can't recall having read an older woman/younger man romance before but this was done so well and wasn't at all cheesy or salacious. Lisa is a 40-ish divorced woman with a teenage son who is still struggling to find her footing. Her photography skills are being wasted on photo [...]

    24. Dani's review:Thank you to Julie who sent this book to me as an ARC for an honest review.You know how they always say that you can't always judge a book by it's cover? Well with this book I did, and I was so wrong! Lisa, Lisa, Lisa. Where to start with her? Somewhat sucessful photographer whose current model is office supplies. Divorced. Her husband left her for her 15 year old son Jake's best friends mother. Oh and Lisa doesn't think she's beautiful. Braden: HOT YOUNG STUD You have Lisa, a 41 y [...]

    25. I was gifted a copy of this in exchange for my honest review. This was a cute read and I zipped right through it. My favorite thing about Extreme Close-Up was the fact that her husband had left her for another woman and she starts a relationship with said women's 23 year old son. IN THEIR FACES!!Fist Pump for her!! haha!. I love a good revenge or girl got her groove back book!. I give this one 4 Stars. Book #2 in the Perspectives series releases this fall as well so I will be watching for that. [...]

    28. 3.5 STARSNot your typical love story, but rather the story of a divorced woman & mother of one who re-discovers herself and her passions when she indulges in a relationship with a much younger man.Lisa finds herself stuck in a rut both professionally and personally, with a shitty ex husband, a soul-destroying job & the bills piling up, something needs to change and soon.
