Never Is A Very Long Time

Never Is A Very Long Time Summary

Never Is A Very Long Time is a contemporary romantic comedy from USA Today Bestselling Author Donna McDonald. This series is perfect for the romance over 30, 40, or 50 crowd who are looking for love a little later in life. 

Unexpected love can be funny, romantic, and if you're lucky, perfect!

For dating expert Dr. Mariah Bates, nothing in the world feels better than finding her clients the perfect date. Finding one for herself might be nice, but creative bill paying is not for accomplished doctors in their forties. Satisfied customers keep the electricity on. 

Everything in her life was fine until she quit her celebrity radio job to start a dating business. Two years, a cheating ex, and a very ugly divorce later, she’s back to living with her mother. Not that her mom isn’t great, but come on. 

With her cop ex-husband doing everything he can to ruin her business, she’s at her wit's end. Throw in another cop who makes her want to believe in love at first sight again and life is a mess.  Another sexy bad boy cop is the last thing she needs.

AUTHOR NOTE: This story is an old-school sensual romance. There is some kissing and touching, then the door softly closes. You can count on an absolute HEA and plenty of humorous situations guaranteed to make you laugh.

Book Reviews


My thanks to this author5 star

Finally, a witty rom-com which features mature, realistic attitudes toward sex, love, relationships...including toward exes. Most books in this genre are pretty superficial and overly simplistic in their portrayals of love, sex, relationships. Also, appreciate that this was “sexy” and sensual without being pornographic. Author did a great job with this.55

Second Chance5 star

This book was a breath of fresh air after a truck pollution. I want me a John and a mother named Georgia. Mariah, I am a little envious of you at the moment but love that you worked like Stella and got your groove back. Dan on the other hand.... I could have strangled him seven ways to Sunday. This was a winner from beginning to end. I enjoyed the chemistry, banter, and LOVED the wet t-shirt contest. Just epic as scenes in this book goes. Thank you Donna for bringing back what is missing.55


Loved it5 star

Great story line and great characters. Loved the humor and the romance. Best of all I loved that it has older woman and men in it. So many books only have 20-30's like one you get older than 39 romance is off the table. One of the favorite things reading this author is she doesn't have an age limit for love and romance. Can't wait to read book two55
