QUICK NOTE...Update: 10/10/19

Good news: We're back home! Bad news: It's like Apocalypse Heck Part III.

The one year Hurricane Michael anniversary is already here. Where did the time go...and yet it feels like forever. You don't realize how much you take for granted until it's all gone. I'm grateful my family/fur babies survived, and I know they are just "things", but sadly, in this life, those "things" help us get through every day. So yes, "happy" yet not. Every day is still a struggle...not just for my family, but so many others.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

The Lonely Spinsters Club, Book 1
by
Daphne Hargrow
Romantic Comedy, Chick-Lit
Date Published: May 15, 2018


About the book...
She doesn't have time for a relationship, but maybe she could swing a one-night stand.  After all, he's just a stripper, so no need to worry about the future... or a broken heart.

Kendall has it all: a soaring law career, a bank account filled with cash, and an apartment overlooking the Chicago River. Her life couldn’t get any better; at least that’s what she thinks before she hosts a bachelorette party for her younger cousin, Ruthie.

What starts out as a low-key soiree quickly turns into an evening of debauchery when two strippers show up unexpectedly. During their act, Kendall can’t keep her eyes off the dark and stoic Giovanni. Fueled by too many Moscow Mules and ignited by the male form, her suppressed desire smolders.

With the prodding of her older cousin Freya, Kendall pursues a one-night stand with Gio. But when she realizes she wants more, Kendall is forced to reexamine her priorities as well as her lifelong definition of success.

Kendall's story is the first installment of the five-book romantic comedy series THE LONELY SPINSTERS CLUB.

Honestly, it was a great read from start to finish!  You can't help but love our girl Kendall.  She lives her life, chases her goals, and tries not to worry what others say or think about her...but deep down, she wants to make her family happy, just on her own terms...and alas, love has taken a backseat to her ambitions.  Well it DID at least...guess it just takes that one to spin things in another direction, although the direction events take for Kendall are most definitely unexpected.  Anywho, as I said, I really felt she was a great leading lady, oh and yeah, I'm there with her on the terminology thing (you know if you've read it! )...LOL!  When life starts turning from lemonade to lemons, she struggled to change (who wouldn't? ), but eventually finds her own path while satisfying her heart. You see? Women CAN have it all.

Oh, and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Gio with more than an obscure passing nod.  He was certainly more than what he seemed at first glance, even if there wasn't really anything he could physically hide behind at first gland...*ahem*...but that's not to say that our attractive man of many talents was without flaws.  He had a chip on his shoulder from a past hurt which made him somewhat blind to Kendall's stresses.  He also had an unwillingness to let anyone truly in, which certainly makes things in the heart department more challenging, but that's not to say he didn't fight it...eventually...and in the mean time, we were treated to a feast for the eyes AND heart.

All in all, it was fun to be an honorary member of the Lonely Spinsters Club, fantabulous to see the "president" of said club get booted from her position, and wonderfully fulfilling to know that there's more to come.  Can't wait to see what the author has in store for the other members...especially after some things that happened!  Surprisingly, it does bring to mind what could be a weightier question...could YOU do it?  Could you date a stripper/dancer?  Reading recommendation for those that love a bit of humor in their romance, or are looking for a light yet curiously fun read for a summer day.
