USA TODAY Bestselling Author Abbie St. Claire brings you her delightfully sexy and comical entanglements of a new divorcee...
Have you ever woken up one morning and thought, "Is this it? Is this the sum of my life? A failed marriage, a newly grown son that no longer wants to need me, a solo act in the dating circus, and all the mess that comes with it?"
Suddenly, my perfect world crumbled like a house of cards. My ex-husband, the certified doofus, was gallivanting with a much younger paramour. Post-divorce, I vowed not to become a cougar, but little did I know what was to learn about navigating this brave new world of singlehood. I had convinced myself that a thriving career and getting my only child out of school were the markers of success. But the truth was, sipping gallons of wine and cheering with the happy couples of Hallmark could no longer cut it.
Under that wonderful thing called “girlfriend pressure,” there was encouragement to look for something a little fun, even daring. A dating life? Wow, wrong on so many levels of what that had become. Sure, Mr. Duracell could keep the lights on in the satisfaction department, but I longed for the comforting embrace of a man's strong arms, the joy of shared dinners with other couples, enjoyable conversation and a life beyond the confines of my four walls.
In transparency, who was I kidding? I was yearning for genuine, passionate, crazy spontaneous SEX!
And then, IT happened.
Everything I'd been missing suddenly flooded into my life. I stumbled upon the world of sexting, quickly learning what it was... and what it most definitely was not. I discovered that there was such a thing as "Facetime" for grown-up rendezvous, and lo and behold, Mr. Dirty Harry entered my world in a wild, unexpected way.
Soon, I realized that online dating platforms like Bumbling, Matching and Plenty of Fried Fish didn't always have the Mr. Rights: not right for me, not right for anyone, and possibly not even right in the head.
Then there was Collin, irresistible on every level, except when whiskey was involved!
"Romance Re-do" will keep you in stitches while guessing at the next foiled steps as life flips upside down, shaken out in more birthday cake martinis than one could count, while stirring in all the madness during pursuit of a happily-ever-after.
