Neil is an excellent December man. Kind, considerate, caring. He’s worked hard for all he has. His lifestyle is a testament to his achievements. A broken heart in his younger years is all the reminder he needs to keep his relationships with any woman casual. Date a little, play a lot, never get too deep. Then he meets Krista who’s unlike any other woman he’s known. She’s undoubtedly beautiful but there’s something else about her he can’t name, something that keeps her from fully exploring the attraction between them.
Though Neil is the most gorgeous man she’s laid eyes on in a while, Krista is reluctant to pursue anything with him after something he said left a sinking feeling in her stomach. The one thing he said he didn’t want, she already had. If he couldn’t accept that, how could they have a relationship at all?
Neil and Krista’s story is a roller coaster of misunderstandings and doubt. Ultimately, it comes down to one scene in the entire book:
[Krista] “Did you really think it would work?”
[Neil] “When I told you I loved you, I meant it. I’d have given everything up if it meant I got to spend the rest of my life with you.”
The direct approach is often the best way of putting a situation in perspective. Neil’s declaration was an eye opener for Krista and left little doubt in my mind how sincere his feelings were for her. Moving past this moment… Well, that would be the real challenge for them.
Unforgettable isn’t just about a wealthy man being attracted to the girl next door. It’s about working past miniscule details that shouldn’t matter in a relationship but sometimes do. It’s about communicating and listening. It’s about reconciling and moving on together. This is a terrific opener for Ms. Wolfe’s new series, and I look forward to reading other May-December happy ever afters that will come from The Gentleman’s Club.
