Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Well, sometimes you want a book that has older leads, no teen/twenties angst, but people with a little more experience of life. This book delivers that in a romance that’s at times cynical, at times laugh out loud funny and at times so very sad....Him Indoors kept saying “must be funny, you’re smiling again” and there were some fab humorous moments in it.
Its written in first person from Melanie and her daughters Cassie and Gia, in alternating chapters. That worked well for me, as I do like to see how the characters think, and often what one person perceives is far from what was intended and this alternating POV lets us see the truth.
Melanie, she’s going through what so many people do – divorce, feeling old against the new, younger wife, feeling life is hard trying to get over her ex, bring up teens, balance work and home life and somewhere along the line trying to have her own social life. Her friend Jodi was fantastic, a great support and so funny. Then there’s Ben, back in town and her bête noir from school many years back. At first there’s a lot of friction, but there’s still that simmering attraction he had for her and soon they are – well, Ben won’t call it dating, won’t label their relationship, won’t call her his girlfriend and it leaves Melanie wondering if she’s just a booty call, and if she’s happy with that. The sex though – better than her ex many times over so as per Jodi’s advice for now she goes with the flow.
When I see what her teens are going through, the bullying, and how cruel kids can be I’m glad I went to single sex school (n and the bullying there was bad enough!) ...poor kids, thankfully my own didn’t have those problems when at school.Read more ›
The content is clean and avoids sexual details, so is great for young adult ladies as well as older women. Its great for teaching YA how older adults see life.
I really loved this latest book by Beth Rinyu! I thought it highly entertaining and found myself smiling throughout most of the book. Having said that, the book did touch on some very serious issues thus resulting in some heartbreaking moments. It really was perfectly balanced. The book was written in multiple points of view which I thought was perfect for this story! The personalities were just so great and I truly loved getting to know them - Ben, Melanie, Carrie, Gia and let's not forget Jodi! - were so damn likeable and easy to relate to that I honestly felt like I could just call them up for a quick chat! I loved this book and can't wait to read Gia & Carrie's books! I do not hesitate to recommend this fabulous read and give it 5 stars!
Loved how this was a good length and no these 200 page books that I read in an hour!! If you like real drama, angst, banter and flirting this is definitely for you
