I both liked and disliked this one for good reasons. It was good but my number one dislike is being left wanting more from the story, a lack of fulfillment and yet, it's a good story. We have two single parents struggling to raise, understand, and guide their teenagers on the path. The heroine is worried that her daughter might end up making the same choices that she did like fall so easily for the words of a man who left her and was married. The hero was so busy with work and the pain of losing his wife that he left most of the raising to the nanny and before his eyes could adjust, the son was growing up. The two do butt heads at first but then they work together in order to help the other with their kid problems. For example, after a bad lunch with the hero to figure what kind of a person his son is and listening to him criticize her parenting, the hero offers the heroine a chance to name a time and place for them to meet with their kids. This meeting for dinner gives them a chance to see that the other has good kids but the other parent is struggling to guide them when they don't want to listen. The hero becomes attracted to the heroine who doesn't believe that he's attracted to her since he has a pretty young thing and she's isn't a spring chicken no more. After a hot night, the heroine panics thinking the hero was thinking of someone else when they were doing it and cuts them off. However, she contacts him again when her daughter disappears. It turns out that she and the hero's son went to a college in Italy to check the programs out. Once there, the hero and heroine see that they have raised kids that make good decision and each of them have a one on one talk with their kids. After that, the hero and heroine have some time alone where the heroine and hero talk out their feelings and admit that they love each other. The title didn't make sense because how can you call a man an unmarried husband when he's neither nor has been for 15 or so years. I did like but I felt there could have been more to it.
