Zoe Foster’s latest literary contribution is in a word, perfection.
I’ve loved Zoe’s writing since her days at Cosmopolitan, so I jumped at the chance to review “The Younger Man”.
Her novels always manage to pull me in, much like the charming “Younger Man” Marcus, who shares a one night fling with Â Abby a “thirty-something” career-woman. Abby thinks nothing more of it other than a bit of fun. That is until their paths cross again under professional circumstances… What follows is a truly delicious read.
Without giving too much away, the chase between Abby and Marcus is fabulous. Abby and her friends Chelsea and Mads encapsulate young Sydney women and the dating scene, all are wildly different, but are after the same thing – love, albeit from different types of men!
Zoe beautifully details, through Abby, the trials and tribulations of juggling a small business & trying to juggle a social life and date someone.
I couldn’t help but wonder how much of Zoe’s personal life may haveÂ influencedÂ her novel, given her Â fiancÃ©eÂ is a year younger and is none other that 2012 Gold Logie Winner, Hamish Blake.
If there is a sequel in the wings, I’d be a very happy reader – this is one story I’d love to see Zoe continue.
Finally, if anyone ever had any issues with dating a someone younger, perhaps reading The Younger Man, might just change their mind!
