This isn’t my life. Okay, it is my life, but not the way I envisioned it would be.
I wasn’t supposed to be a divorced mother of three when I turned the big 4-0. Sure, I expected the fine lines, gray hairs and left over baby belly. What I didn’t expect was expanding our family get-togethers by one… my ex-husband’s new child bride. Ok, ok, she’s not young. Maybe.
Did I mention this is not the life I planned?
It could always be worse, I know. I’m lucky to have a mother who loves to babysit, a best friend who loves sarcasm, and a new friend by the name of Greg, who is apparently a child whisperer and tells me my eyes are pretty.
The perfect, Adonis-like God of a man who keeps flirting with me. At least I think he’s flirting with me. It’s been so long, I don’t really know.
Between birthday parties, a few ill-advised bouts with make-up, and a whole slew of gymnastics classes, it’s finally time to take back some control.
So, while my girls learn all about how to grip the bar, I’m going to learn how to get a grip on my life. And maybe my heart.
I did enjoy this book because it made me laughing a lot especially with the kids. I really liked Elena. When her life imploded she could have let it get her down, but she's not going to let down her little girls. Those girls are too precious. I could relate a lot to this book because I saw first hand how this scenario works out because my parents split up when I was young. I liked Greg and couldn't think of anyone better for Elena. There was a twist that really had me thinking so major props to the author for doing things different. I was not happy how the book ended it was a little disappointing, but I was happy to see the authors note at the end.
Mother, reader, storyteller—ME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.
