Beth had sucked me in again! Haha! I love all her books. This story is told in three povs which I loved!
Melanie- mom of Carrie and Gia divorced and looking to mingle sort of. :-)
Gia - twin Daughter of Melanie and Alec and a total hoot. She can make anyone laugh.
Carrie- twin Daughter of Melanie and Alec. Tutoring Jason, Bens Son.
Ben - Jason's Dad and has interest in Melanie
Jason- getting tutored by Carrie
Daniel- tutoring Gia in Calculus
There is a lot going on but it's such a great story that it will have you flipping the pages. I wanted to grab Ben by his ear a few times in this read. Melanie is such a great character. Funny, witty and unstoppable!!
She is partners with her mother in a bridal salon. One day, with the plumbing leaking she runs into the boy from high school that made her life miserable. Only he is no longer a boy but a gorgeous man. She is rather snarky to him but he doesn't remember her right away and when he does he doesn't remember being mean to her. He was quite the ladies' man in school - to everyone but her and she was the one with the biggest crush.
They get together and their story is great. A few really unexpected twists, mean girls in high school, good teachers, bad policies in school. Things that happen in real life. This was a great story. I loved the heroine being older, she was 37 close to 38 and not that old when you are 75, but she feels like she is older and not much chance of finding love again.
this is a definite read, I really do recommend it. I loved it. Great ending and a delicious story. you will love Ben!!
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know ne. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.
My interest was piqued by an unexpected one-nighter in Mexico that starts off the story. Then she returns to her regular life: divorced, partner with her mother at their bridal shop, and raising her twin daughters. She meets up with the popular guy from high school, who she was crushing on and is now even hotter. There is a surprising twist because of her casual sex that is funny and awkward, and her growing attraction to him.
There are some sexy scenes, heartbreaking scenes, and proof that family and love mean everything.
I rated this 4 stars because I felt that too much time was spent on the daughters' stories the expense of a longer story for their mother, especially since both daughters are featured in the next two books in the series.
The book is the 1st in a 3 book series. It's told in 3 POVs: Melanie(mom), Gia and Carrie(Twin teen daughters). It's been a VERY long time since I related & connected with a character so much. We have soooo much in common, a divorce & a teen daughter are just two! I LOL sooooo many times with Mel's dating antics & her bff's crude attitude! It's awesome! When Mel needs the assistance of a man, she gets a little more than what she bargained for! Tempers flare when the twins find out exactly who her secret crush really is!
I love the daughters too! They are really polar opposite & both have totally different personalities! It was awesome to watch them grow & develop into much more mature young women! This book is full of young love & new love. Both that are so enjoyable to read able.
Can Mel move on from her ex & get a second chance at life & love?? Can Carrie & Gia get past the stereotypical boys that everyone thinks they should be with? Will the bullies win? Find out with the first book of this series! It's truly awesome!
I adored this book. It was the perfect combination of love, and family and crazy. I was hesitant going in because of the 3 different POV's, but it was actually a flawless transition back and forth that kept the story moving forward perfectly. I was glad it was more about Melanie(the mom) but I enjoyed the other perspectives as well.
Well done Beth! You have an amazing talent and gift for writing...I'm just so glad I get to experience it!
