Blurb:

Shelly Gelson had it all…a job teaching English at Carver High, her best friend, Mel, working by her side and engaged to her high school sweetheart, Chase Marino. That is until Chase breaks her heart and leaves her for another teacher at the school. Now Shel is left broken hearted and trying to figure out what she wants while watching Chase and the home wrecker make moon eyes at each other.

Enter Matt Fuller, Shel’s friend for the past 5 years and the perfect rebound. He’s gorgeous, smart, funny and fits into Shel’s idea of the right guy. Only problem is there may be more there then just a simple rebound. Is it a way to fill a void left by Chase, or is there more smoldering between these two friends?

Find out what happens when the bell rings and the teenage drama ends and the adult drama begins. Who says being a teacher is boring? They obviously haven’t met the teachers at Carver High.

I picked this up ages ago when it was a freebie on Amazon (still is!) and it’s been riding around in my Kindle-To-Read list forever. Why didn’t I pick this up sooner? SERIOUSLY! I haven’t read a book this funny since Wallbanger.

Shelly is heartbroken because her douche-bag ex-fiance’ is already dating. And she has to see him EVERYDAY at work – and the hoe he’s dating. Fun huh? Well then you get into the thick of her friendship with Mel – since the 4th grade these two girls have been at each others sides. And for every girl out there, you know you have a Mel. The girl that’s seen you at your best, and worst. Is there to pick up the pieces and get you shit faced drunk when needed. She’s also the one to talk you into getting back on that horse, and when we say horse? She means a man!

In walks Matt (well not really – they’ve been friends/co-workers for four years.) But Shelly is seeing Matt in a whole new light as the flirty banter commences – and she starts noticing that he’s really good looking – funny – and of course, drinks dark beer (a prerequisite in her finding a new man.) Matt’s funny – there’s very little drama with him, unlike her ex-ass Chase who seems chalked full of drama for all of them.

There are some of the funniest moments in this book that reminded me so much of my best friend – and the ridiculous conversations we have with each other. And reading them just made me laugh all  night. And the fact that Julie used the word Choonies to describe underwear? Well – you just became my author soul-mate. But in all honesty – it’s a rarity to pick up a book, and find such affection for it’s language – and how fluidly it flows. And the humor was fantastic and made me want to call my best friend at 3 am when I finally put my kindle down and tell her all about it. Julie’s writing style is fantastic – open – brave – fluid and something people should strive to achieve.

Check it out – its FREE – what do you have to loose other than sleep?

(Like I did last night.)
