I'm not a fan of first person fiction, but when Jess started to speak, it was as if I was in the room with her and she was talking directly to me. The descriptions of feelings, people, motivations were so spot on, so true to life they gripped you and didn't let go. The basketball theme appealed to me because I love sports and sports romance, but the basketball court also served as a place for her to find happiness. Although this was a romance, it was about so much more than that. And the romance wasn't sappy, but realistic. The supporting characters were rich, contributing much to the flavor of the book.
Like a fine stew with subtle flavors working together, The 90 Day Rule blended different aspects of Jess's life perfectly, from her daughter, Etty, to her mother-in-law Tonia, the sweet was never too sweet and the sour never too much so to go down. Instead you have a fine piece of work with gorgeous writing that will captivate you. This author has set the bar high. I can't wait to read another one of her books. Don't miss this one.
Jes's story is one far too many women have lived. At an early age, her dreams fell under the bus that was her husband's career, relegating her to the subservient role of token wife in charge of nothing but raising the perfect child and projecting the image of the perfect family. It's all about keeping up images, until she catches her philandering husband in bed with a woman/girl young enough to be his daughter.
Fresh out of options, Jes is sleeping on the sofa in her daughter's college digs while she tries to knit together a new life with tattered threads from the old one. Help comes from an unexpected source, but like most gifts, it comes with strings attached - play the devoted wife for ninety days, long enough to get her husband re-elected, in exchange for a quick divorce complete with a financial settlement that will allow her to resuscitate her dreams.
This is a wonderfully refreshing read jam-packed with real emotion and realistic conflict. As a reader well past the twenty-something mark, I appreciate a mature heroine with mature issues. Can she pick up where she left off all those years ago? Are the dreams of her youth no longer attainable or realistic at her age? What, exactly, does she have to offer the world? What is she to do with unexpected desire, and the important question in any romance, can she dare to love again?
I loved Jes's journey from lost and broken to grounded and strong. The transformation isn't easy, but real life rarely is. THE 90 DAY RULE is honest, and real, and fabulous, as well as refreshing, bold, and well written with layers upon layers to make a reader think. I give it five stars for originality in a genre that too often takes the freeway when a side road might be more interesting.
As with all Nya Rawlyn's books, the writing alone is worth the time for the read. It's elegant, precise, and utterly gorgeous. But the people...the people are REAL. They are messed up and steady and funny and wouldn't you just love to have them next door. Jess doesn't have much of a stop on her mouth and some of what she thinks just comes tumbling right out. What a wonderful way to lose time out of my day.
