This is mainly Jillian's story. She is a romance writer and recently divorced. She caught her husband cheating. Her experience with men since has been a bit of a disaster. Jillian's son Rob and his best friend Brian end up coming home from college on their spring break. Brian and Jillian end up spending some time together during that time. There is a mutual attraction, yet they don't want to act on it. They have so much in common and are a really great match. She is his best friends mother. He is her son's best friend. Not the ideal situation for a romance. Brian is hung up on Natalie someone he had started a relationship with at college. Getting to know Jillian has given him more of a perspective into what he really wants out of a relationship. You can say that Jillian has really introduced him to what could be. The funny thing is the age difference between them is the last thing they worry about. It's Rob Jillian's son, he is so clueless to what has transpired between them. Rob is too caught up in his relationship with his girlfriend Laura to notice.
Through the entire book I was so rooting for Brian and Jillian. They were so humorous whenever they were together. Everyone wants to be with someone that you can laugh and joke around with. This was what they were just themselves. So comfortable and carefree. I just adored them and just about everything in the book. It was so refreshing to read a book that was far from the angst ridden tear jerker books I have been reading as of late. This book will definitely lift you spirits. Really you will be laughing out loud to these characters antics. I look forward to reading more in this series. This book was so great. If you want a light, humorous, and don't forget a sweet and spicy read, well this is so what you want to read. So go for it. I did and am so glad I did.
I didn't like the book very much, but give it four stars for good character development, a storyline that flows, the title is applicable and over all is well edited.
At the end of the book, the author includes recipes for the homemade pancakes and the chocolate mousse ganache cake. Yummy! There's also a You Tube link for a short movie of the pool scene where Brian & Rob's mom are getting high and come up with the F.W.P.B. rules. The skinny dipping isn't shown. Finally, if you sign-up for the author's newsletter, he'll send you a free copy of the second book in this series. Since I didn't like the storyline here and the next book follows the same characters, I'll save it for another day. Perhaps reading reviews will help me decide if I should read it sooner rather than later. Enjoy!
