"A woman ready to give up on love discovers that age is truly just a number in this heartwarming and steamy new romantic comedy by USA Today bestselling author Nicola Marsh. For almost a decade, successful thirty-seven-year-old Samira Broderick has used her bustling Los Angeles practice as an excuse to avoid a trip home to Australia. She still resents her meddling Indian mother for arranging her marriage to a man who didn't stick around when the going got tough, but now with a new job Down Under, she's finally ready to reconnect with her. And while she's there, a hot international fling might be just what she needs to get out of her recent funk. Aussie stuntman Rory Radcliffe has been hiding his stutter for years by avoiding speaking roles. When a job he can't refuse comes up as a reality show host, he knows he'll need some help for the audition: a dialect coach. But he finds himself at a loss for words when he discovers it's the same sexy woman with whom he just had a mind-blowing one-night stand...Samira can think of many reasons why Rory is completely wrong for her: he's ten years her junior, for one, and he's not Indian-something Samira's mother would never approve of. Even if things were to get serious, there's no reason to tell her mother...is there?"--… (mere)

3.5 stars - funny and sexy, although the tropes in this book are not my preferred I still enjoyed the characters! ( )

This was a quick enough read but I'm not sure the was ever any conflict. ( )

As a 47-year-old single woman of color, I appreciate reading a sexy romance with an older heroine finding love and having a healthy sex life. Love, dating, and sex doesn't stop at age 30! It was refreshing to read a romance featuring a May-December romance where the "December" is an accomplished woman. The hero wasn't perfect. He had a stutter and the heroine suffered with infertility. Nicola Marsh did an excellent job of weaving these challenges throughout the story while providing us with a sexy romance with characters we don't normally get to see. I am already recommending this book to my romance reading colleagues and friends. I will definitely be purchasing this is a customer and encouraging my library system to purchase it for the collection. (And to do a virtual book club around it!) ( )

Excellent Case Study In Storytelling. Over the last month, I've read all three of the books Marsh is releasing (from three different publishers) over the course of six weeks from early October 2020 through mid November 2020 (when this, the last of the books in this "series", releases). And each has been dramatically different from the last, which speaks to Marsh's true skill as a storyteller. Second Chance Lane, the first of the series, was a Hallmarkie romance. My Sister's Keeper, the second, was a weaving, winding, soap opera of a tale that my wife says would work well as a Lifetime Movie.

And here, with The Boy Toy, we get arguably the most cinematic of the three books, in the vein of a multicultural Knocked Up / Hundred Foot Journey. We get an older lead female. We get a look at various facets of Indian culture (that as my friend Ritu says in her own review, many of Western cultures won't be as familiar with - more on that momentarily). We get a more-balanced-than-usual look at the struggles of infertility as it relates to those who actually want children. (Vs childfree people like me that *don't* want children and thus infertility is actually a blessing of sorts.) We get an age-gap *ish* romance with the *female* being the older person in the couple.

And yes, we get sex. A lot of it. And all over the place, beginning as little as 10% into the book. If you're looking for a "clean" / "sweet" romance... you're not gonna want this one. ;) Similarly, getting back to the cultural issues... Marsh does a good job of not hiding at least one Indian equivalent of what I call "Talibaptists" in the US. She does a great job of showing the pressure they can wield socially and the damage it can wreak, and she doesn't shy away from this aspect at all - instead giving a solid example of how to overcome it. Every culture has these types, sadly, but Marsh shows them in depths not often explored, particularly in a romantic comedy, and again - shows her strength as a storyteller in doing so.

Ultimately though, this is a fun and funny romantic comedy that hits all the right notes, discusses some heavy topics, but leaves you satisfied in every way text on some surface can. Very much recommended. ( )
