Read Getting a Grip (#MyNewLife, #1) Online Free - This isn’t my life. Okay, it is my life, but not the way I envisioned it would be.
I wasn’t supposed to be a divorced mother of three when I turned the big 4-0. Sure, I expected the fine lines, gray hairs and left over baby belly. What I didn’t expect was expanding our family get-togethers by one… my ex-husband’s new child bride. Ok, ok, she’s not young. Maybe.
Did I mention this is not the life I planned?
It could always be worse, I know. I’m lucky to have a mother who loves to babysit, a best friend who loves sarcasm, and a new friend by the name of Greg who is a child whisperer and tells me my eyes are pretty.
The perfect, Adonis-like God of a man who keeps flirting with me. At least I think he’s flirting with me. It’s been so long, I don’t really know.
Between birthday parties, a few ill-advised bouts with make-up, and a whole slew of gymnastics classes, it’s finally time to take back some control.
So, while my girls learn all about how to grip the bar, I’m going to learn how to get a grip on my life. And maybe my heart.

4 Hot Dog Loving Stars
This is the story of 40 year old Elena, single mum of three young girls on the path to rediscovery after her husband of 15 years leaves her for his mistress. This hilarious journey was one of the most 'real' books I have read in ages. The characters struggle with 'normal' b...

ADORABLE!!! I laughed so hard at times, and got choked up as well. I especially liked how believable and relatable this book was, from day to day stuff going on to the inner turmoil the characters dealt with. AND there is "something" in this book that I have NEVER, yes NEVER, read about in ANY bo...

So real. So fun. Add in something I don't think I've ever seen in romance before and this book was a big winner. This story at times felt a bit like Chick Lit until the romance started to really heat up. But once it did, I was all in. The ending had my heart racing becaus...

Such a wonderful book. Elena - heroine is in her late thirties, divorced, with three kids and a douchebag of an ex-husband and his new barbie wife.
But karma is a bitch and I just loved how Elena turned his asshole ex down at the end - too late he realized, how a wonderful woma...

“I feel bad for poor Bruce Jenner.” She shakes her head and sighs. “It’s no wonder that poor man had to become a woman… If you had your choice of being married to that woman or wearing a dress for the rest of your life, I’d choose the pantyhose, too.”
Poor kids. They can see the tr...
