new standalone, Thirty-five and Single. 
What can go wrong when you’re getting divorced from your high school
sweetheart, it’s your thirty-fifth birthday and you have too much to
drink?Throw in the gorgeous neighbor who comes to the rescue when you can’t seem to
open your apartment door after all the alcohol and end up taking a drunken slip
and slid across the floor.

Then you look up into his gorgeous face and forget all the reasons why it’s a
bad idea to hook-up with said twenty-something neighbor. In fact, it’s a
fan-freaking-tastic idea.

Now let the games begin because this is Olivia’s life: – interfering sisters,
the ex, co-workers… and Joel, her way too sexy, too young, but oh so hot
neighbor.

Wanting to explore single life, Olivia fights her growing connection with Joel.
Only he’s is determined to prove to her that age is just a number and she’s is
his number one.

Excerpt
When I meet Joel
Matthews, I’m in an unexpected place in life.
Divorceville.
I mean who expects
that after fourteen years of marriage to your high school sweetheart.
Not me.
It hits me while
celebrating my birthday with my sisters that I’m thirty-five and single.
Shouldn’t I finally date someone other than my ex?
I totally deserve
that, right?
After way too many
lemon drop shots, I’m tricked into trying on my younger sister considerate gift
as she put it. Did I mention it’s a gag gift? A “my milkshakes bring all the
boys to my yard” t-shirt and velour sweatpants with “Sin-a-Buns” written across
my bottom which she finds all too hilarious.
That’s how Joel
finds me, too smashed to open my apartment door and when I do, I take a drunken
slip and slid across the floor with my Sin-A -Buns on full
display.
Joel doesn’t seem to
notice. Then again, I swear I heard a chuckle. But no matter, he’s right there
to make sure I’m okay as any knight in shiny armor should do.
Okay, where did that
come from? Clearly, I’m not in my right frame of mine.
When I look up into
his gorgeous face, I forget all the reasons why it’s a bad idea to hook-up with
my twenty-something neighbor. In fact, it’s a fan-freaking-tastic idea.
(Ride that pony,
girl
? Did I really just
think that?)
Until I wake in the
morning with a delicious ache between my legs and a pounding headache. I’m
mature enough not to regret it, but adult enough to realize it can’t happen
again.
First—I’m too old
for him. He’s in his twenties for goodness sakes.
Second— I’m single
for the first time in years. Like I’ve only ever dated one guy.
Third—Shouldn’t I
date multiple men before I find the one? Wasn’t that my first mistake?
Only Joel isn’t giving
up.
He’s determined to
prove age is just a number—
And I’m his number
one.

This is my first book by this author and, although I thought it had potential, otherwise I wouldn't have read it, it didn't do much for me. I found Olivia to be, well, rather annoying. Joel was a bit better but not much. He's a sweet guy and I liked him, but he just didn't click with me. I never really felt the connection between Olivia and Joel and there just seemed to be a lot of holes in the story.
The story line was intriguing but in the end I just didn't enjoy this one.
