I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that enjoys reading about relationship dramas and the effect these have on the characters.
This is my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. Well, the first 90% of it, which I found to be really well written. The emotions of all the characters involved were beautifully portrayed enabling you to see the unfolding dramas from all perspectives, which isn’t always easy! I read the book in two sittings (nearly one, but I had to give in to sleep!) because I wanted to know the outcome for all those involved. However, I found the last part of the book was too fast and ended quite abruptly. I turned the page expecting there to be a final chapter, or at least an epilogue, to round up the loose ends and to see how all the characters had fared. So, I was left a little disappointed that this wasn’t there and I felt that the ending had been rushed. Despite that, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that enjoys reading about relationship dramas and the effect these have on the characters.
Lucy Caruana, A LoveReading Ambassador
At sixteen, Kimberly Kirby thought the only thing she needed to be perfectly happy was to spend the rest of her life with Jay Braxton. Twenty years later, she still believes it. As they proudly watch their daughter, Haley, graduate from high school, she imagines her life is as perfect as anyone could reasonably expect. Jay is a formidable attorney, she a freelance writer, and their love as strong as ever. With Haley heading to UC Berkeley in the fall, Kimberly fantasizes about making love on the kitchen table. She has no clue that Jay’s bags are already packed. Now divorced and determined to squelch her love for Jay, she accepts a gig writing a sex and dating blog for divorcees. As the Virgin Dater, she is on the hunt for love. No-strings-attached nights with a sexy fireman and moving to San Francisco are just what she needs to boost her battered ego and mend her shattered heart. But just as she falls hard for a talented young chef, Jay fights to win her back. Torn between her bold new life and the comfort of Jay’s strong arms, she questions if there is too much to forgive. The ten thousand I love yous that had passed Jay’s lips can’t be dismissed, but nor can her newfound freedom and the knowledge that her happiness doesn’t depend on Jay.
