Life has not been easy for Penelope Summers. Specifically, the last month, when her high-profile boyfriend dumped her, her indecent exposure record surfaced, and her favorite thing in the world, tequila, failed her.
Good thing for Penelope, she has her best friend to pick her up, and take her on the vacation of a lifetime. A seven-day cruise that will change the direction of her downward spiral. But will that spiral shift in the direction Penelope needs? Or will it throw her into a bigger whirlwind of trouble?
With Reckless Abandon as her motto, tequila as her wingman, and a hot one-night stand as her much needed reward, will the tables finally turn for Penelope, or will life as she knows it continue to fail her?
Sometimes you just have to ride the wave of crazy to find out.
Life As We Know It by J.D. Hollyfield NOW AVAILABLE!
Well, this book was pretty darn perfect in my opinion. ┬áHilarious girl with no brain-to-mouth filter? Check. ┬áHot guy who knows his way around an office and the bedroom? Check. ┬áNow, add in a situation where said foul-mouthed lady finds herself in a work situation with said hot guy? ┬áOH YEAH…that’s some good reading right there!
Penelope was looking to start over after being dumped by a man who didn’t appreciate her in all of her quirky awesomeness. ┬áHow does she decide to move on? ┬áShe takes a vacation that was already planned and finds her inner wild girl again. ┬áThis cruise is her way to find what she suppressed so long…and she finds there are men who like her just as she is.
Sam Dresden is pretty freaking awesome. ┬áHis relentless pursuit of Penelope, especially after their initial encounter is nothing short of a┬áfairytale. ┬áHe’s a perfect blend of fun, intelligent, charismatic, sensual, and driven. ┬áReally, the type of guy Penny needs in her life.
I love Penny’s sense of humor as she navigates her new life and watching her trying to figure out what she really wants out of life. ┬áHer back and forth with Sam is reminiscent of some of my other favorite romantic comedies (a little┬áPucked┬áby Helena Hunting flavor). ┬áThe writing is fabulous; you can’t help but read faster because you have to know what is coming next.
