This Time Is Different Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Life can change in a flash. Marriage and a baby wasn’t Amy Forsythe’s college plan. After a shotgun marriage glued together by her son, she’s convinced that love isn’t meant for her. Now nearing 40 and single for the first time since her senior prom, her friends are pushing her to date. Her teenager isn’t thrilled by the idea and neither is Amy.
Silver fox Thomas Popov isn’t looking for "the one". He found her decades ago. And fell apart when she died. At 53 with a new job, a new city, and an empty nest, he’s focused on climbing the corporate ladder.
When a softball accident lands Thomas in Amy’s dental chair, sparks fly. Lightning doesn’t strike twice. But love might. This time is different.

Frankly, I love that this is a story for "grown ups" - and I don't just mean that the characters are Gen Xers. These characters are normal people with real life issues - work, kids, body image concerns, normal insecurities, etc.. There are no 20-year old billionaires, crazy plot twists or over-the top story lines to contend with. Listen, I enjoy reading about younger characters as well, but there is something refreshing about reading a story and really, truly being able to relate to so much of what the characters are experiencing or have experienced. I might not have a teenager (yet) or be divorced (thankfully), but I "get" where Amy and Thomas are coming from in so many ways and their story really resonated with me.
I can't wait to see what Wood serves up next!! I have hopes that there are future books about some of the supporting characters we've been introduced to so far. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that we'll get a chance to read more about them sometime soon.
**An ARC was provided by the author for an honest review but I loved it so much I purchased a copy as well**
It’s not just this time that’s different—this book is different too. In a needed, wonderful way.
It’s life after kids and second chances at happily ever after. It’s messy relationships and uncertain beginnings—and endings. It’s real life in all its imperfect glory, and it’s perfect because of that.
This Time Is Different takes smart, sexy characters—Gen Xers—and proves that the dreaded 4-0 doesn’t mean that romance is dead. Not when there’s a silver fox waiting to charm you.
You guys, THOMAS. I wanna shiver all over just thinking about him—about his kind, happy personality, which has enough hallmarks of alphaness to be downright hot without ever getting into OTT territory.
And that’s the way of this entire book. Mae Wood brought her A+++ game to this story, lacing humor with heat and real life with romance. It’s mature and brilliant and utterly addictive—I was 50% through before I knew it, and though I tried to slow down and savor it, I couldn’t stop myself from reading, devouring each and every word.
My only gripe? It’s over. I’m finished. This Time Is Different has an ending that fulfills and satisfies and rewards, but I have no shame in my greed. I want more. I want six epilogues, two novellas, and a short story. Please and thank you.
But until then, I’ll take more books like this one—smart, sexy and imperfectly perfect. (And written by Ms. Wood.)
'And it wasn’t just fire in his eyes but an uncontrolled and uncontrollable chemical reaction, burning bright and hot and white like magnesium.'

This may be the most real book I've ever read. Amy and Thomas are people I can picture in real life. I see myself in their kids. I see my parents in them. I see my friends in their friends.
If you've read Plus One by Mae - this is the perfect follow up. Getting to see Bert again and the other side to their divorce was wonderful. Getting to read about Grady again and also a glimpse at Trip and Marissa.
Get this book. You will not be disappointed - I promise.
This story will be the type of book that I'll reach for over and over. It's a palate cleanser for life! When the world gets too big, I'll be able to escape back into a love story that embraces being a love story. I grinned throughout the book. It just feels good to read it and it rests easily on your heart.
There's no added drama for the sake of shaking up a story, real life with teens has enough drama on its own. There's no big break up scene over some stupid miscommunication, no villains, and no kidnappings! And before you think this book could be boring without all the angst and drama remember you do get dad jokes, cat humor, and smoking sexy times.
This is a grown up love story between mature adults with real life responsibilities and real life scenarios. Mae Wood has done it again! I read her books and can see myself in them living my own happily ever after. I highly recommend this Gen-X romance.

This is a second chance for Amy (divorced, single-mum) and Thomas (Widower with grown up children) and I love how both characters are in a place in their lives where they aren't particularly looking for something, they are both successful and settled in their careers and want for nothing. The fact that they are thrown together and decide to act on their attraction rather than waste time is a definite plus for me.
This is a look at a real grown-up relationship with the complication of blending families and managing feelings of other people without losing what they want. It is witty and sensitively handled.
I was completely absorbed in the story and couldn't believe when it finished, I wanted it to go on and on.
I laughed out loud in many places and even had hand to mouth after a gasping in drawn breath on occasion too.
My main problem was my overriding need to keep reading as it was so good versus my almost manic need to put the book down so that I could spin out the enjoyment that _little_ bit longer.
Loved this story and decided to read in one sitting, so that I could re read it again.... very soon ! Enjoy !
The tale of Dr Amy and her silver fox Thomas Popov had me hooked from the start. They are real adults with real lives navigating their way to a second chance at love in a story that I couldn't put down.
Mae always delivers with the romance, sexy times and great, realistic characters who you can't help but want to know.
Can be read as a standalone or as part of the series - which let's face it you will read them all if you try just one!
