but not the way I envisioned it would be.
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
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
with me. At least I think he’s flirting with me. It’s been so long, I don’t really
make-up, and a whole slew of gymnastics classes, it’s finally time to take back
going to learn how to get a grip on my life. And maybe my heart.
Most of the time the books I read are to escape into the throes of passion, hot sex and the HEA’s. So image my surprise that Getting A Grip was not one of those things – IT WAS REAL! So real that I can image it happening to me or my BFF.
The characters are everything you could want in a book. Divorced Mother of 3, Snarky BFF with an adorable little monster of a son, the swoon worthy friend to lover and of course, the despicable ex’s.
The story line is so heartwarmingly genuine that you will be thinking of people in your own life that this book could be about. The interaction between the characters is off the charts.
The only thing that I did not like about this book was the cliffhanger! But with her usually style, M.E. Carter made laugh about that too!
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.
