Starting Now

Release date: May 7, 2018
Starting NowA Brooklyn school counselor and widowed single dad take a chance on true love in this heartfelt and charming debut romance.

Sebastian Dorner never imagined he’d be a widower or a single parent. And he definitely never pictured himself navigating the world of dating apps as a forty-two-year-old man, even if it is better than the heartbroken void he’s lived in for too long. When he runs into his son’s kindhearted former pre-K teacher, who threw him a lifeline those first horrible months after his wife’s death, his heart sparks unexpectedly once more.

Via DeRosa, a former foster kid, has finally gotten her life on the tight leash she’s been striving for since her parents’ death. With her shiny new counseling job at an elementary school and a steady boyfriend, she’s looking forward to stability and a drama-free future.

Neither Sebastian nor Via is prepared to be back in each other’s lives, but now that he’s on lunch monitor duty at her school every day, it’s impossible to ignore the chemistry between them. But their age difference makes Sebastian feel like a dinosaur, and this magnetism is exactly the kind of upheaval Via’s sprinted from her entire adult life.

Will they risk sacrificing their comfort zones for a shot at a passion that could last a lifetime?
