Book Review - The New Normal by Tracy Brogan (Read and listen for free in Kindle Unlimited)


From neighbors to friends to lovers? All the makings of a risky second-chance romance by USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Brogan.
Since Carli Lancaster’s divorce, she’s worked hard to keep life as normal as possible for her daughters. When she lands a job as cohost of a local morning show, it looks like a fresh start. So does the arrival of a handsome new neighbor, who has more in common with Carli than just a property line.
Ben Chase is also new to single parenthood. And like Carli, he’s focused on the future.
From navigating neighborhood gossip to decorating for holidays to reaching out in times of trouble, they quickly learn to rely on each other. Just like a couple but without the complications of coupling! Sure, there’s attraction. They’re only human. But they’re also friends, and who wants to ruin a perfect relationship with romance?
They’re both thinking about adding some perks, though, and even if their new normal isn’t perfect, it’s definitely somewhere in the neighborhood.


This story was a refreshing change of pace in my romance reading.  If you are looking for steamy romance, this book is not for you, but if you are looking for character building and a book about a budding relationship that doesn't just happen over a couple of days, then this is for you.  I found both of the characters interesting and flawed yet still likable.  I also loved that these characters were a little older and not 20 somethings.  In general, I loved everything about this book and would recommend to anyone who reads romance and women's lit.

MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
