Abby Reynolds is burned out.
Since clawing her way into a great position at a Boston museum, she’s been saddled with a scheming intern and a nagging boss. She’s scuttled her own painting dreams, her cat refuses to be box trained, and now the most boring man on the eastern seaboard just told her, “It’s not you, it’s me.”
Her bestie Sarah offers a much-needed escape: a summer of sand, sea, and younger men in Santa Cruz…
Hot young bike racer Jason is sexy, unattached, and completely ready to spend a summer in uncomplicated flirtation. Since Abby has decided love is off the table, he seems like the perfect match.
Then she meets Matt. Sculptor, surfer (and age appropriate), he’s everything she gave up wanting and then some. He’s a grown-ass man with his own life issues: does he want to sculpt for love or for profit? What about that twentysomething model who’s always clinging to him? Is he ready to let a woman invade his Fortress of Solitude?
Abby has to decide whether she’s satisfied with leaving behind the idea of Mr. Right and settling for Mr. Right Now.
Grown up love. It’s complicated.

My Review 4 Stars out of 5  
I have to say that this was a very interesting book.  This is definitely not a book where everything is predictable.  The author was able to incorporate humor, twists, and freakin hot men into one book.  I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it based on the title of the book.  For some reason I thought it was going to be boring.  However, this author was able to captivate me with the plot of the story.  It absolutely is not boring at all.  I should know better than to judge a book by its cover but I will admit I’m guilty of this sometimes.  In this instance I was absolutely WRONG!!!  Hope you enjoy J
