When mid-forties, divorced, single-mother-of-three, Kimberly, realizes her own mother has more of a life than she does, she decides to do something about it. Encouraged by success stories from people at work, she joins a dating chat room, ICQ, which starts to rock her world.
All of a sudden she’s a swinging single, online, with extreme dates, a little dirty talk, and a sense of her new, sexy self— until that fateful moment when her long-time chat-room buddy, LonelySingle, wants to meet. "Are you trying to find a man on Facelook?" her Mom questions, after years of being told it is Facebook! What if he doesn’t like her? What if she doesn’t like him? These are the thoughts, inside her head. Until they meet and realise, that they have been friends offline as well as online! What happens next?
A light-hearted, romantic comedy about a single mom finding true love, which was right before her eyes.
If I had a partner things would be different I would not be feeling or thinking like this, I would be sharing responsibilities. I would have birthday parties, and not have to be the one who deals with everything to do with the party.
Stop it Kim, you’re kidding yourself - you had a partner—Tom—and he never did any of that. We met due to the fact that I decided to take a year off prior to going to college to work in a cafeteria, how sad is that? Everyone was shocked. I just opted for a job in a local cafeteria until I figured out what I wanted to do. Before I knew it, I met Tom there, and then we dated, got married, and had kids. I never made it to college. Looking back, it was more like I got married and had kids. He was just some guy that used to come to the cafeteria too much and paid me some attention. After high school, no man really did. I was no longer the prettiest girl or a prize token.
I am the mother of three kids. OK, so the girls are twins, so technically I have only given birth twice. That doesn’t make the pain any better. It was obvious after the twins that I could not have any more children. Not only could we not afford it, but the whole ordeal of the pregnancy took its toll on my body and Tom’s financial commitment to the family. He said he couldn’t deal with any more stress.
Ironically, he was not the one that was stressed, because he just distanced himself even further from the family when the twins were born.
About the Author:
Kerry Taylor was born in London. Currently, she resides in Madrid with her three children. She is often found either writing in her local park or, if the weather is bad, which is not often in Madrid, in Starbucks. She has written several poetry books and romantic comedies.
This book was funny and a bit quirky. I loved the plot and the idea that we could see first hand what it is like for a divorced mother to get back into dating. I think we always knew it was easier for men to date after divorce but for a woman it is much harder. This story cemented that feeling. I was really enthusiastic about this book after reading the blurb and I really did like the story. It does have a few things that bothered me. Some I can take off stars for and other are just my preferences and not something I ever take off stars for.
The story line was wonderful but I kept waiting for a smashing climax. There was a climax but it kind of dribbled in and then dribbled right back out. For this I took off one star. I had personal issues with the writing style and I don't take off stars for that but it reads more like a journal than an actual story. I still give this book a solid 3.5 stars and I will recommend it to my true romance friends because it is a wonderful story.
