A reckless, obsessive soccer star. A forbidden affair that could ruin her career. The locker room has never been this steamy.
The Younger Man, an epic standalone forbidden age-gap sports romance, by New York Times bestselling author Karina Halle, is LIVE!


Starting over was her only option.
Forty-years old and still reeling from a public and painful divorce, Thalia Blackwood is looking for a fresh start, somewhere far away from her upside down life. When she’s offered a new job as the sports therapist for a football (soccer) team, she jumps at the chance. This is just what she needs to leave the heartbreak and shame of Manchester behind, trading it in for the warmth and hopeful vibrancy of Madrid.
He was her only desire.
Twenty-three year old Alejo Albarado is rising up the ranks in his career. As the charming forward for the Real Madrid team, Alejo’s life revolves around women, parties, and being a tabloid darling, that is until the new sports therapist joins the team.
Their passion could not be ignored.
What starts out as a strictly professional relationship between Thalia and the young Spanish player, slowly evolves into something more. Much more.
Their relationship was forbidden.
But their combustible chemistry and simmering sexual tension can only go so far—should Thalia give into Alejo’s advances, she’s at risk of not only losing her job, but succumbing to a much younger man will drag her through the spotlight again.
Alejo might be worth that risk.
Unless he breaks her heart in the process.
The Younger Man is a full-length standalone romance. Characters from Love, in English make a cameo in this book, however The Younger Man is intended to be read as a STANDALONE.

Karina Halle delivered a soul crushing romance that was forbidden, sexy, passionate and full of love. I had no idea what I was going to get with a forbidden sports romance with the leading female being older, but I have to say that I really enjoyed this one.

Coming off of a heartbreaking divorce, Thalia is trying to pick up the pieces of her life and start over. With a new job in the works and the chance to re establish her career, things are starting to look a little bit better for this newly forty year old single woman. Being a physical therapist for the best soccer team in Madrid, Thalia knows she has to take care of the players and make sure that their recovery is top of the line. But things suddenly get complicated when one of the star players changes everything for her.

I loved the setting for this story and if I closed my eyes long enough, I could have pictured myself in the scenery and soaking up everything. The food, the excitement of watching the games, the sight seeing, I loved all of it and this author did a good job of making me envisioning it. I will admit that Thalia needed to be more self confident in certain things and I felt like I would have loved the story even more if it was a bit shorter.

Aside from that, I think if you love a good forbidden romance, then you should give this one a try because it’s definitely worth it.
