Title: 3 Seconds
Author: Bethany Lopez
Release Date: August 25, 2015
Synopsis: A lot can happen in 3 Seconds. It's the space of time between walking onstage and stepping up to the mic. It’s that moment when your eyes meet across a crowded room and the chemistry between you is undeniable.

Bronagh has accomplished a lot in her thirty-five years. A successful pub owner and happy divorcée, she's learned to enjoy life, but have realistic expectations. Her past has taught her that it's best not to depend on others, but that doesn't mean she won't sample a tasty morsel when it's right in front of her.

After taking a break from culinary school to travel abroad, Brendan is back and eager to finish what he started. Although he relishes the nights he gets to play with his brothers in their band, and enjoys their healthy supply of groupies, he's ready to start acting like the twenty-something that he is…a fact he craves to prove with Bronagh.

What starts as a one-night-stand becomes more when Bronagh and Brendan realize that they can't walk away. But can a younger man who's prone to late nights and scantily-clad women convince a woman who's been hurt that age doesn't matter, and he's the man she needs?

Excerpt 1
Brendan stepped forward, into the bar, and was immediately surrounded by greedy, shouting women. 
            That ugly seed of jealousy grew, even as I tried to bury it within me, but I watched as Brendan kept as smile on his face for his fans and scanned above their heads, searching for me. When he found me, his grin grew and I heard him say, “I’m glad you enjoyed the show, ladies, but I’m afraid I’ve got a hot date,” as he sauntered right to me. 
            I barely registered the chorus of boos and awes, his pull already taking hold of me. 
            He didn’t pause when he reached me; instead he came at me full force, pulling me into his arms and fusing his lips to mine. The desire that had been building throughout his performance came to a head, and I met his passion full force, opening my lips and inviting him in for a taste. 
            Just as we were reaching the point of no return, Brendan pulled back and smiled beautifully down at me, his eyes flashing with the heat I knew he was feeling. 
            “Let’s get out of here.” 

Excerpt 2
“Okay, Bronagh, what’s the big emergency?” my friend Ming asked when we were all settled in the corner booth of mine and my da’s pub. “Not that I’m not always up for drinks, but you made it sound like you’d just found out that Henry Cavill is gay, and all hope for your future together was lost.” 
            I smiled half-heartedly at her joke, but my mind was too boggled to fully appreciate her quick wit. 
            I figured it was best to just rip the Band-Aide off quickly and get straight to the part where they agreed that I was right, and needed to forget that I’d ever seen Brendan naked. 
            As if that could ever happen… 
            “I went home with that lead singer the other night, had fan-freaking-tastic sex, and it turns out he’s one of my students at the culinary school.” That said, I let out a long breath, then picked up my dirty martini and took a swift drink. 
            “Yay!” Cass, the third member of our trio, shrieked, startling me with her exuberance. 
            I gave her the stink eye over my glass.

3 stars

3 Seconds is the 6th book in the Time For Love series. It can be a standalone, but to get the full effect of the story, I would read them all.

This is Brendan  and Bronagh's story. Brendan is one of the  O’Malley brothers who is in the band Whiskey Heat. He is a rocker by night and a chef by day. 

Being in the band lands him all types of ladies, but now he has found Bronagh and he is changing his ways. Bronagh is not what you would expect Brendan to choose. She is older, divorced and his teacher at culinary school. All the odds seemed to be stacked up against them, but it doesn't deter Brendan from staying away, For the first time in his life, he is in love and nothing can change him mind. Not even when Bronagh pushes him away stating all their difference. 

This book was a fast read for me. I thought it was missing something though. Before I realized it, the book was over and I felt like there should have been more story.
