Boomerangers [boo-muh-rang-ers] noun, informal: an adult that moves back home to live with a parent after a period of independence.
I love sex. I love the power, the intimacy, the euphoria it brings. Too bad I’m not having any . . . You’d think as New Orleans’ most renowned sex therapist that I’d be swimming in single men. In a way, I am . . . except for the fact that one is in diapers and the other two are drowning in preteen hormones. As a single mother of three, my days are devoted to my clients and my kids, and my nights are spent with Fabio, my trusty vibrator. When my world begins to unravel, I have no choice but to move back home. And when my high school sweetheart comes waltzing back into my life, comedy and chaos ensue.
What can I say? I never said I could pick ’em, but you can bet your ass I know how to fix ’em.
As soon as the ink dried on my divorce papers, I made myself a solemn vow: I was done with relationships. Moving home to take over my father’s firm was the plan, until Spencer decided to return, along with three souvenirs from the life she’s lived without me.
I’ve been in love with the girl next door for nearly all of my life; the rest was spent trying to forget her. I’d give almost anything for a second chance with her, but I have no time for distractions—especially the kind that involve diapers, bottles, and eighteen-year commitments.
The problem is, she’s already got me by the balls . . . and I’m beginning to feel the noose tightening around my heart.
**5 Swoon-Worthy Stars**
I have never read this author before and by golly am I missing out.
This book is so much everything. I loved them all. I loved the writing and the way the author drags you in and you just felt everything, from the happiness to the heartbreak and back. The pacing was spot on, and I felt like I was right there with them all. I was invested from the first word until the last. This is again hands down one of the best second chance romances I have ever read. It will make you laugh and cry but mostly laugh and fall in love with the lot of them.
Spencer Rose or Spence as she is called is one of the best female leads I have ever read. She is strong and confident and loves her three boys to the moon and back. She loves her job as a sex therapist/marriage counselor. She does it all on her own as a single mom. So when her boss and the owner of the company she works for closes the doors, because he was stupid, she has no choice but to go home to her mom. She has twin boys Landon and Lake that are twelve and are so different from one another. Lake is a bleeding heart good boy that feels everything and goes with the flow. Landon is fierce and a bit stubborn but loves his mom to bits. Then you have Kyle. Oh by God that little two-year-old boy keeps everyone on their toes, and you can’t help fall in love with him. His brothers nicknamed him Savage for a good reason. Then we can’t forget Gina her BFF. I loved her as well. Now let’s meet Cooper.
Cooper James. Oh, that man. He moved home after he divorced two months prior. He and his ex-wife didn’t want the same things. He is coming back for a fresh start and going to take over the law firm his father owns. Cooper and Spencer have the past. He was her first love and she was his. They never got over one another. Cooper make a fatal mistake and walks away and it forever changes everything. Boy does Spencer make him work for and she should.
I loved the interaction between Cooper and Kyle. Since Ky;e can’t say Cooper he calls him Pooper. I was laughing and my husband asked me what the heck was going on. This is what I read to him:
“Dis nummy, Pooper,” Savage says with blue syrup dripping from his chin. “Are you actually getting any of that into your mouth?” I ask, wondering how the hell I’m going to get this sticky mess of a kid back into my truck. Maybe snowballs weren’t my greatest idea. “Uh oh…” Kyle’s eyes get big and his forehead creases. I do not like the sound of that uh oh. “What’s wrong?” “I shit myself, Pooper.” I choke, spitting red snowball down the front of my white oxford. “Kyle, you can’t say that word.” “I sowwy…I need a biper shange.” Son of a…I have never changed a diaper in my life. “Please tell me you are joking,” I beg. A shit-eating grin spreads across his blue face. “I for real, Pooper.”
Oh my gosh!! See, you will fall in love. There is an interaction between the twins and their mom that will have you laughing your behind off. I can’t say enough about how much I loved all these people and when Spencer needs Cooper the most, he is there by her side in whichever way she needs him the most. Good God, this man will melt your panties and make you swoon all at once. He is a big teddy bear with a huge heart. There are so many raw emotions between these two. Wherever they are the sparks, heat, lust and everything else you can think of. Everyone and everything else seems to fade into the background when these two get together. Let the shenanigans begin.
Read this book if you want a funny, heartwarming, interfering moms, amazing best friends, a fiercely protective momma with a man that will worship the ground she walks on and love her kids. Put it on your TBR and read it, you won’t be sorry. It was one hell of a ride.
