Product Description

Product Description

Approx. 40,000 words; standalone novel
*More of a coming-of-age story than traditional romance. Contains sexually-explicit scenes, adult language, and is recommended for readers over 18.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing, Fun, and Dirty-Flirty!!! 18 May 2014
By Kari Nappi - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition

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 a major jerk and never treated her the way she deserved to be treated, especially according to man-boy Braden. At twenty-three years old, Braden helps forty-one year old Lisa rediscover herself, her body and her life after divorce.

What I loved:
The characters had a back story that was connected, entwined, and deep. Lisa’s ex husband, is now her ex best friend’s husband. To complicate matters more, Braden is her ex best friends son. Braden was very close to Jake, Lisa’s son, at one point when they were younger. Braden was asked by Jake to look after his mom’s house and help her out. This just added to the character background and development.
The author, a former screenwriter, definitely shines as her dialogue pops off the pages and brings every interaction to life. The way it’s woven into the different emotions of the characters is a true testament to her background. It also allows the personalities of the characters to really be heard.
The story has PIPING HOT SCENES, chemistry, and laugh out loud humor that makes you feel like you have grown up with all of the characters!! There is none of the repetition that most novels have. The quality of the story is all there without beefing it up for length. (ohhh…length)

What I didn’t love:
Honestly, the one and only thing I did not love was that it ended. I wanted to keep laughing. I wanted to know more about life after divorce and how good it looked on Lisa. Julie Jaret has tapped into a story not often explored, at least not in modern times. There is something special in her writing. Something sustainable. She is an author to watch!!!

Julie has a gift and experience in a writing world not many novelists can say they have. As a debut novel, she did everything right and it shows. Extreme Close-Up is a refreshing take on older woman/younger man scenario. Julie uses photography for the main character’s career, and parallels the photographs to her sex- life. The more exciting the sexy times, the more her creative side is awoken and by the end she has it figured out all around. Keep them coming Julie!!!! Can’t wait for more!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cougar on the prowl! 7 August 2014
By rebel27 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sometimes a woman just needs to test the bounds to find out whats really out there.

I absolutely loved this book and how the novel is such a hot topic with Cougars right now. In a way this book is a coming of age for one young man as well as a life revamp for a newly single mature woman. I mean what older woman hasn't looked at a sexy young stud and wondered what would happen.

This book is both believable and amazing in the way the author was able to bring this book to life. She showed us that no matter what age its never to early or to late to find love.

I bought this book for my wife and she loved it so decided to pick it up and have a read myself, not my usual cup of tea but this kept my attention throughout, the story was very engaging and the characters are extremely well written and rounded, each has a background which I imagine many readers will be able to relate to.
If you enjoy this particular kind of fiction then I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 21 March 2014
By Jo-Anne B. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
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 friend of his comes to cut the grass. Lisa sees a gorgeous young man cutting her grass so goes to tell him he is at the wrong address when she realizes it's is her son's friend, Brady, who is doing the job and he is in the right place. Lisa can't believe Brady is so grown up and looks so hot - oh yea, Brady is eight years older than Lisa's son.

Turns out that Brady (now called Braden) has had a thing for Lisa since he was 12 and now at 23 he still does. Braden was a football player in college but an injury ended that path. He wasn't disappointed because he wanted to use his brain, not body, to make a career. Braden is a really nice young man, being very respectful and polite. Since Braden was still attracted to Lisa he thought this was his chance to act on that attraction.

The story and characters were very believable. The author amazed me in writing a story about an older woman and younger man and made it seem completely acceptable. Braden helped Lisa accept herself the way others saw her which was much better than she saw herself. Lisa helped Braden realize that he could go back to school and take the career path he really wanted.

It was so nice to see the wonderful way the author had Lisa finally accept herself as a beautiful woman both physically and mentally. This story had some very sad, emotional times near the end but many laugh out loud moments throughout. The only thing that I wasn't comfortable with was Lisa's feelings for Braden since she had known him as a kid.

The ending was perfect. I had no idea how this book would end and have everyone content but Julie did it.
