BRYNN

At thirty-four, I’m reeling from a divorce. I don’t want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn’s Dips and Balls.

But my friends aren’t having it. Get out there again,they say. It will be fun,they say. I’m still taking a hard pass. 

Free designer cocktails,they say. And that’s a game-changer. 

Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That’s when I lose my mind. But when my besties dare me to leap on the first single man I see, they don't expect me to actually go through with it.

TOM

All I need right now is some peace and quiet while my home renovation TV show is on hiatus. But when a curvy woman in a red wrap dress charges me like she’s a gymnast about to mount my high bar, all I can do is brace myself and catch her. What follows is the hottest experience of my adult life. 

I want a repeat, but my flying Cinderella disappears immediately afterward. She doesn’t leave a glass slipper, either—just a pair of panties with chocolate bunnies printed on them. 

But I willfind her.

I really had a lot of fun reading this one.

Tom was fucking hilarious and I loved that he talked to his dick and that it had a mind of its own. He talked to it like it was a real and separate person and those were some of the funniest parts of the book.

Brynn finally taking the plunge and almost attacking Tom was a scene stealer and I loved that she was not portrayed as some waif of a girl who tried to pull this off. I also appreciated that the old girlfriend didn't bring unnecessary angst to the story and that Brynn didn't just jump to conclusions. 

Probably the best thing about this story is that they actually talked about things that bothered them. I cannot stress enough that people do not miraculously know what you’re thinking. There's not a ton of hidden agendas or threats, and things are pretty much exactly how they seem. It’s refreshing to see a story that understands that. 

I cannot wait to read Ash and Serina’s stories, because those two women are a hot mess but deserve their own happy endings.
