Logan Knight is staying with his grandfather while recuperating from an accident that claimed the lives of his two best friends. He needs time to heal his body and his heart from the tragedy of that fire. Libby Turner will do whatever it takes to keep her parents from placing her beloved grandmother into an assisted living facility—even masquerading as a 70-year-old woman. From the moment the two meet, sparks fly and they can't keep their hands off each other.
Can they stick to their plan of keeping their relationship strictly sexual, or do they give in to the overwhelming love that threatens to claim their hearts?
Libby concocts an outrageous scheme to protect her beloved grandmother, Margaret from being placed in a care facility. Libby disguises herself as a 70 year old woman & moves in with Margaret, to take care that Margaret is safe & sane. I did wonder why Libby doesn’t have a real job, & how she’s paying her way with Gram, but the entire scheme, a la Mrs Doubtfire or Tootsie, doesn’t seem to be necessary, because Gram is perhaps a bit forgetful, but certainly not ready for a care facility. Seventy year old women these days are vibrant, interested & interesting, & don’t spend their days playing bingo. Instead they are active volunteers, caregivers themselves in many cases. I felt the premise was all wrong here.
However, Vincent next door has a thing for Margaret, & his grandson Logan is staying with him as he recovers from a serious accident. When Libby meets Logan, sparks fly, & now we get to the farcical part where she tries to keep Logan from figuring out that she & her alter ego Reba are one & the same. I have a feeling this might have worked better as a movie, because the visuals of the old ladies might have been better.
Nevertheless, it’s a cute little love story, & a HEA ending. And I did love the part where Logan kisses the ‘old lady’ which was the best part of the story.
