A standalone 

the sexSYNOPSIS

I’m forty, flabby, and frustrated. Don’t get me wrong, I have a good home, a decent job, and great children. I had a loving marriage for twenty years where we had our ups and downs. It wasn’t perfect; but it wasn’t awful. Then he died.

After the grief took its course, and the reality of my life set in, I grew frustrated. It wasn’t the bills or the struggle to keep my interest in my work. It was life without a man – the only man I’d been with for twenty years. And before you go all feminist on me, it isn’t that I can’t be an independent woman, but there are certain areas where a man is necessary.

You need a fuck buddy, my friend said.
I didn’t even know what that meant.
Is it friends with benefits?, I asked.
Better, you don’t even have to be friends, she offered.

Boy, did I need an education in the modern workings of dating, and sex.

The Sex Education of M.E

Reviewed by Gitte and Jenny

 

“You’re forty-two years old. You’re still young, beautiful, and vibrant. You have life in you. Live it. Take charge. Take what you want.”

Hurrahhhh a story with older forty something characters. Real characters with the type of struggles we ourselves face. This is one of few of this kind landing on our kindles so we relish every moment of a refreshing change. The Sex Education of M.E is like an onion. So many layers and so many revealing emotions, truths and hurts. It was very well written and as a first for us by this Author, it certainly won’t be the last.

“I’m not going to lead you astray or do anything to embarrass you. Just take my hand and follow my lead. Take a chance.”

We laughed, swooned, empathised and cringed at the realism in equal measure whilst reading. Emme and Marek were well written characters each with their own issues and struggles after the life experiences thrown their way. We connected and fell in love with both and especially loved the almost reluctant flirty banter and the way this Author highlighted the fact that no matter the age we have, insecurities and experiences that have shaped our thoughts, apprehensions and behaviours-  we are still learning about ourselves and we are still full of hope and aspirations. Age is just a number which does not make us, shape us nor does it define us.

‘Merek and I were different in so many ways. I often wondered what I did for him, as I knew what he did for me. Could I go back to being alone? Probably not. Did I feel more confident to seek out others? Possibly a little.’

Both beautiful and curvaceous Emme and sexy silver fox Marek have been through the ringer, both needing to make some changes and realise a few home truths, both having to grow and learning to just let go and grab the chance of love and happiness. They are night and day when you compare their lives, yet what they have in common is so very important. What they each bring to the other is something quite intense, passionate and beautiful. It all begins with an itch to scratch…..

“What’s this?”

“My number. Think of me like Uber. You need a ride, I’m your man.”

We really enjoyed this story and highly applaud the hot and spicy Merek who had us needing some freezer time. This Author gave us something sweet, spicy and fun that really resonated with us whilst at the same time touching on some pretty sensitive and emotional topics. Fabulous Foxy Forty- We LOVE it!!!
