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.

What starts as a one-night-stand becomes more when Bronagh and Brendan realize that they ca n't walk away. But can a younger woma who 's prone to late nights and scantily-clad women convince a woman who 's been hurt that age does n'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 oman.

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 things.

~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 tal, 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 can not be denied leading to their one night stand.

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?

I received an ARC of this nove in exchange for an honest review.This was my first Bethany Lopez book and I will definitely be going back to read the earlie ooks in this series.

A few years later, Brendan ca n't stop thinking about Bronagh and she comes back into his life in a very nexpected way.

Bronagh is wary about starting a relationship with Gavin, but when it comes down to it, she knows that what they have together is special and she should n't let that go.I loved Brendan and Bronagh together.

They had a lot in common and their relationship seemed to come to them in such a natural way.

Dea god for all the friends and family in both of their lives, because without them knocking sense into both Brendan and Bronagh, it probably would never have happened.

After reading this I definitely plan on starting the series from the beginning as the glimpses of past characters has me dying to know their tories and excited for what the future brings to the new characters as well.Bronagh 's a confident woman moving on from a recent divorce, talented and doing what she loves in teaching culinary school.

Bronagh 's a strong-willed woman who knows that her biological clock is ticking and doubts Brendan 's ready to commit.

Their relationship were supportive and brought a smile to my face as they 're the sor of friends you want for yourself.Brendan 's another new addition to my list of book boyfriends as he 's weet, sassy, and oozes charm.

His nteractions with his brothers was equally entertaining as that of Bronagh and her friends with their mischievous and chiding banter which further charmed me and left me wanting to see much of his brothers.From start to finish this story held me captivated with its sweet and sass romance, immensely appealing main and secondary characters, and realistic yet familiar storyline.

That has been the way and it can even be " accepted to the extreme " by society ... Only recently has there been an article about the gulf of age between leading men and me in movies ...

So where are you going with this, you may ask ... Well, in 3 Seconds by Bethany Lopez, she presents a love story of a oman of 35 starting and feeling her way with a an of 26.

For Bronagh is at the stage in her life where she has experienced a unhealthy marriage and come out the other end of divorce knowing what is vita to her and her future.

You are on track and most of it is due to the guidance and love of his sons.

This is one of those " older, less experienced and confident women with a ounger, gorgeous, and honest guy " type of reads.

Danny is a guitaris in a band, a mistres of cooking, and finally finishing up his culinary degree after taking time to travel through Europe.

She may not want to jump into a friendshi, but that does n't mean she would n't take a chance and jump at a night with a hot, olde, most likely " skilled " guy.

Hell, I would ( just sayin') .Brendan is exactly what you think he is: a one-night stand, sort of guy.

Passionate about his family, about cooking, about music and after the one night that was supposed to end with her sneaking out of his apartment he 's quickly becoming passionate about Bronough too.Pulling the " guy move " and sneaking out of rendan 's place was intended to be the nd of it.

When he found me, his grin grew and I heard him say, “ I ’ m thankfu you enjoyed the show, ladies, but I ’ m disappointe I ’ ve got a hot date, ” as he sauntered right to me.I barely registered the chorus of boos and awes, his pull already taking hold of me.He didn ’ t pause when he reached me; instead he came at me full force, pulling me into his arms and fusing his lips to mine.

The esire that had been building throughout his performance came to a head, and I met his passion full force, opening my lips and inviting him in for a taste.Just as we were reaching the point of no return, Brendan pulled back and smiled beautifully down at me, his eyes flashing with the heat I knew he was feeling. “ Let ’ s get out of here.' " But as I said in the en I loved the dynamic between Brock, Brady and Brendan.

This sexy older woman, younger man romance is the storie of Liam and Bronagh.

Despite Jaso 's mid-20s age, he is a grounded and smart woma, quite comfortable with himself and his goals to pursue music where it will take him at the same time as finishing his chef degree.

When he meets Bronagh, there are immediate sparks in the ir, but after their one night together, he has a lot to prove in order to convince her that his age should n't matter in their relationships.

She is not ready to love again, but she is not averse to a night of fun with a hot rocker.

She has been hurt before, but if Brendon can show her that he is mature for his age, the age difference will not be an issue for them.Like I said, this book is simple yet it is very adorable.

Bethany Lopez wrote a ovel that makes you want to smile.

Honestly, all I needed to see was “ band ” and I was sold on this story;) “ I deserved this…I deserved a one-night stand with a hot-as-hell rock star. ” But, as the storie progressed I became more engrossed in Andre and Bronagh ’ s elationship, and his part as a musician wasn ’ t even significant to me.

And I know some of you are reading this and going why is the age difference an issue?!?

I am guessing it can be read as a stand-alone since I signed up to review it, but I definitely would have loved to know a little more about a handfu of the haracters.

I found myself unfamiliar with a few characters, but yet feeling like I should know who they are.

It may not feel that way if you read the series in order;) With all that being said, though, I really enjoyed this story and recommend you give this series a try.
