 I’m forty, flabby, and frustrated. Don’t get me wrong, I have a good home, a decent job, and great children. I had a loving marriage for twenty years where we had our ups and downs. It wasn’t perfect; but it wasn’t awful. Then he died. After the grief took its course, and the reality of my life set in, I grew frustrated. It wasn’t the bills or the struggle to keep my interest in my work. It was life without a man – the only man I’d been with for twenty years. And before you go all feminist on me, it isn’t that I can’t be an independent woman, but there are certain areas where a man is necessary. You need a f*ck buddy, my friend said. I didn’t even know what that meant. Is it friends with benefits?, I asked. Better, you don’t even have to be friends, she offered. Boy, did I need an education in the modern workings of dating, and sex. +++++++++++++++++ A coming-of-an-older age novel. Something new from L.B. Dunbar -- a stand alone story!


I really liked this book. I liked that the characters were in their 40s and single parents with the joys of raising teenagers. Emme is a character that I think most women over the age of 35 can relate to. You have kids, things change with your body and in the bedroom. Emme is trying to do right and move on from her husband's passing. She wants to be desired again. Merek is player plain and simple. He never really was the type to settle down. Something changes with he meets Emme.. She makes him want to be better and open his heart to love. One of the scenes I loved was when Emme's kids were talking about how they want her happy again, it was beautifully written and showed how much her kids love her. I feel like Emme and Merek's story isn't over. There were things I felt that were left unknown and unresolved. All in all it was good book with some funny, sweet and even some serious moments.

Author Bio: 
 I’d love to say I’ve written for 10,000 hours, and that makes me a pro. But I can’t say that. What I can say is I had a story in my head that wouldn’t go away. I thought typing it in my computer would be the end of things, but it only led to another story and another. I love reading, so characters in my head isn’t something new. What is new is my creation of them. Hope you enjoy my favorites as much as I do. Happy reading!
