Abby and Ed have fallen head over heels in love and are acting like children, even though they are a very mature couple. Unfortunately, being older also comes with a few glitches which inhibit their sex life. Abby is determined to overcome the problem and introduces Ed to a Ten Step Programme to encourage maximum efficiency.
Having met through a blind date initiated by Abby’s daughter, Abby and Ed cannot believe their luck in finding each other and falling in love. Not everything runs smoothly though as Ed makes clear his intentions to go long term travelling in nine months after a planned early retirement and Abby cannot afford to go with him. She spends weeks and months trying to figure out a way to stay with Ed and still be able to pay the bills on her house, car and daughter’s education and not lose her job.
Having Ed’s ex-girlfriend, Dani, in the background, with her perfect figure, hair and nails fawning all over him, is not helping her mood, especially when Ed refuses to move in with Abby and continues to rent a room in Dani’s house.
Abby does not doubt Ed’s love and commitment, but struggles to understand his strong ties to his past. Just when she think’s everything is impossible; their sex life, living together and a chance of staying together, Abby has a breakthrough in all the different areas and their future looks a lot happier.
I wanted to give this a 5 star rating, but I personally had a hard time with the flow. Possibly due to the difference in reading a non-fiction book; the style & grammar from a different country than mine, and the ‘fiction’ I am used to reading, and noticeable missed edits or typos. But I still highly recommend this to everyone who reads and writes reviews. I’ll definitely be trying out this author’s other ‘fiction’ books that I’ve already added to my TBR list!
