I like how all the kids were written--their actions and dialog fit their ages. Messing that up has pulled me out of other stories.
I liked the way the friendship grew, slowly and reluctantly... and, of course, the HEA.
So I could absolutely see this book as a great rom-com movie. It had all the makings of a sweet and funny movie based on a good book. Dave “from the Man Cave” Bernstein, divorced dad to Lyric is on a dating challenge. Date one new girl a week until January. Julia Mendel is the PTA president, left for a younger woman, and mother to Mia, Lyrics friend, and Brandon. When both Dave and Julia need the same babysitter on the same night, they find a compromise, and a confidant in each other. But when they realise that there may be more, each is cautious in their exploration of it. Until then, Dave’s dates give some hysterical insight into the dating scene and his online blog names become a game for the two.
This book was a fun read! It’s my first from MJ Pullen (sorry die hard fans, but I’m on board now) and I’m ready to read more of MJ’s work. The story was light hearted, made me laugh, made me want to punch some of the exes, and hope that Dave would break one of his requirements for dating. Can’t tell you what it is. It’s kind of a big part of the story. But in the end things came around and I wanted to cheer and maybe stick my tongue out at Julia’s ex Adam and his gf. I still think this would be a great rom-com movie! Thanks MJ Pullen for the great read!
“He pushed back her hair and gave her a sweet, thorough kiss before saying goodnight; Julia kissed him back, far less nervous than she’d expected to be.”
5 adorably funny stars! This book was such a refreshing read. I found myself laughing a lot while reading this book. You can’t help but fall in love with this book!
From romantic comedy author M.J. Pullen comes a unique story about finding help when you need it most, and love where you expect it least.
Even though their daughters have been in the same Jewish preschool class for three years, struggling store owner Julia Mendel and sports blogger Dave “from the Man Cave” Bernstein have never gotten along. She sees him as a definitely arrogant, possibly misogynist symbol of everything that’s wrong with the men in her life. He sees her as the odd, short-tempered PTA president, out to make his life more difficult at every opportunity.
As part of his job, Dave accepts an on-air challenge: go out with a different woman from a Jewish dating site every Saturday for the next four months, and blog the results. He quickly secures his daughter’s favorite preschool teacher (and super-nanny) Ms. Elizabeth to make the experiment possible. Little does he know Julia is in desperate need of the same sitter for the same schedule, so that she can take a part-time job while pacifying her son, who has severe OCD.
A confrontation in the carpool lane leads to an uneasy compromise: they will pool their resources to share Ms. Elizabeth’s services every-other Saturday night. After a while, Dave finds himself sharing his dating stories with non-Jewish Julia across her kitchen table; while she reluctantly turns to him for the masculine perspective – especially for her son – she’s been missing since her divorce. As the Saturdays wear on, however, they may discover they have more in common than car seats and custody schedules.
I really don’t want to give too much away. But I do want to say that this book was such a fun, cute read!! I fell in love with the characters, because overall they seemed down to earth and so much fun. Almost relatable really. The witty banter between Julia and Dave is explosive but so funny. You will definitely fall in love with this book just like I did!!!

“At what point in evolution did cavemen discover bagel and lox?”
“Only a Jewish dating site would hit you in the face with the guilt, right off the bat.”
“We can’t treat him in the car.”
“...but his smile was too broad, and the freckles… cocky. He had cocky freckles.”
"He turned to go, ignoring the pounding of his stupid, cowardly heart."
"“Come on, Baby.” He put cash on the table and reached for his jacket. “Let’s get you out of this corner.”"
"He wasn’t being malicious, and she could remember everything being crystal-clear in her twenties, too."
"She simply no longer loved Adam enough to hate him."
