Summary

No straight women. No parents of students. Nobody under 35. Vanessa Martini makes no apologies for her dating checklist. She’s been up close to enough messy breakups to know what havoc they wreak in life. Just because people see her as fun and happy, and just because she loves her life in general, that doesn’t mean she can’t be careful. Or discerning. Or, okay, fine, super picky.

Grace Chapman is tired of being judged by her boss, by the husband she’s divorcing, by her parents. All she cares about now is her six-year-old son, Oliver. The divorce is making him act out in school, and she just needs to find a way to help him so they can start again. What she does not need is the silent judgment she gets from his teacher. His wildly attractive, super sexy, annoyingly gorgeous teacher.

Grace ticks all Vanessa’s "Do Not Date" boxes. Vanessa is yet one more person who disapproves of Grace. Of course, they’re never going to fall in love.

I tried to like it😖

I really like this author and usually love her books. I only somewhat enjoyed the first book in this series but thought it was just that I’m not a fan of the narrator so I tried this book . . . but nope. The narrator really ruins it but also this story just seemed to drag on. Oh and, I’m not a religious person, but wth was with all the “baby Jesus” comments?!? I’ll be returning this book.

Lies (semi-spoiler)

This book is actually not bad for what it is. It's what it isn't that is the problem since it clearly states that one of the lead characters is straight in the Publisher's Summary. That character clearly identifies as bi throughout the whole book and not straight. To most people this wouldn't matter too much. To me it was a big deal as I am a big fan of that inner turmoil to come to terms with something about themselves that they didn't even really know, let alone understand. Not to compare sexual orientation with super powers but it's that same type of struggle that makes me like a superhero origin story movie and not any of the other movies about them.

I tried

The story itself was not bad. The narration was awful. I got through chapter seven and couldn't take anymore. I am a hugh fan of Georgia Beers but this narrator is just not good. She may want to take some voice classes to help with her craft.

Love this series!

The Martinis are a loveable family, quirky as can be, but super cute! I love the dynamic between the cousins too. The characters continue to be enjoyable and with some depth and AJ Ferraro voice brings them to life. Can't wait to jump into the next book. Highly recommended!

Enjoyable read


it was fun to get hints of the appealing up state NY community and the Junebug animal shelter.
