A lot can happen in 3 Seconds. It’s the space of time between walking onstage and stepping up to the mic. It’s that moment when your eyes meet across a crowded room and the chemistry between you is undeniable.
Bronagh has accomplished a lot in her thirty-five years. A successful pub owner and happy divorcée, she’s learned to enjoy life, but have realistic expectations. Her past has taught her that it’s best not to depend on others, but that doesn’t mean she won’t sample a tasty morsel when it’s right in front of her.
After taking a break from culinary school to travel abroad, Brendan is back and eager to finish what he started. Although he relishes the nights he gets to play with his brothers in their band, and enjoys their healthy supply of groupies, he’s ready to start acting like the twenty-something that he is…a fact he craves to prove with Bronagh.
What starts as a one-night-stand becomes more when Bronagh and Brendan realize that they can’t walk away. But can a younger man who’s prone to late nights and scantily-clad women convince a woman who’s been hurt that age doesn’t matter, and he’s the man she needs?

As the Time for Love series continues we come to a story this time around where it entails an age gape between two people: a younger man and an older woman.
Lead singer to Whiskey Heat, Brendan O’Malley is back from taking a temporary break from culinary school to travel around Europe. Upon his return he seeks to finish where he left off and graduate from class, to play in his band with his brothers again, and prepare for his future. With his goals in place; one night during his return to performing again there was an undeniable bond that he felt across the room. Needless to say he wanted to get to know (in more ways than usual) the woman that has caught his eye.
Cue in mystery woman, Bronagh Callahan who has lived and experienced the married life that turned into divorce, a pub that she owns and runs with her Pa, and enjoying life as a single person. When an unexpected ladies night out consisted of sparks from the HOT rocker before her she was all for the one-night stand; however, that one encounter ended up leading to more.
When they are together the steamy moments are inevitably HOT but what is holding them back is everything else that they have going for themselves. Besides the age factor are two different outlooks for the future enough to make this couple work?
“Give me a shot. Give us a shot. Age doesn’t matter, don’t let it stand in our way.”
A different take in finding love for Brendan & Bronagh and one that had me enjoying every moment ever since that 3 seconds that changed everything. A believer that there is no time limit to finding that one that catches your eye with an intense connection that needs to be explored regardless of certain factors. This is one of my favorite 5 stars reads in the series. Pick up a copy of this #mustread book today! ~Cristina, 5 hearts

“I deserved this…
I deserved a one-night stand with a hot-as-hell rock star.
Okay, maybe rock star was a stretch, but he was young, hotter than hell, and had more than his fair share of talent.”
When I first dived into this story, I didn’t know what to expect, but I was instantly hooked to Bronagh and Brendan’s love story. While we are introduced to them at a club that Brendan is performing at, there is an instant attraction that cannot be denied leading to their one night stand. But what happens when they meet outside the club?
We learn that that Brendan attended culinary school in France and is currently continuing his schooling, but what happens when we find out that Bronagh is in the same class? What happens when they make that discovery? Can they avoid their feelings and deny what they had the previous night? Or will this be an amazing dangerous love affair that Bronagh never even considered having? One thing is for sure, they can’t deny what they feel despite what obstacles they may face along the way.
Bethany Lopez definitely hooks you in from start to finish, only making you want more. And it’s true, sometimes 3 seconds is all it takes. 3 seconds is what gets you hooked. ~ Jennifer, 5 hearts
