I’m Emerson, and my “to do” list is longer than I’d like. You might wonder what kind of woman comes up with a sex bucket list? Answer — the kind who’s been in a sex drought, has two crazy girlfriends encouraging her, and one too many bottles of wine. 

This kind of list requires special skill. And I have just the man in mind to help me. He’s younger. So that checks one thing off my list. And he’s the kind of man every woman should sleep with at least once in her life. The kind of man who knows his way around a woman’s body. And God, I’d like him to know mine.

Armed with new lingerie and a fancy high-tech vibrator, I’m taking charge. Of love, of life, and my libido. How hard can that be? Well, judging by the rate of pole dancing injuries, I might be in trouble.

But how much trouble can one woman get in? Giving your panties to a stranger isn’t illegal in Georgia, is it?

Grab a pen and make your own Sex Bucket List!

Christina’s Four Star Review

I read a lot of New Adult books. Not sure why because I’m likely old enough to be most of the characters parent. But it’s rare for books to come along that are targeted for my age group. There are others out there; period romance, sci fi, etc., but none of these really appeal to me. So when the chance came up to review The Sex Bucket List, I jumped at the opportunity.

As a divorced forty something, Emerson juggles her three kids and a demanding job, rarely taking time for herself. She’s been divorced around two years and shares custody of her kids with her husband. Her family owns an airline so living in Savannah and working in Atlanta is no big deal; she can just hot a quick flight. One drunken night out with friends and they make a Sex Bucket List for Emerson, a way to get her back into the world of dating, given she’s been celibate since the divorce.

Thinking nothing of it, Emerson finds the list months later and takes it with her on the way to work, getting a good giggle at some of the items at the list. She leaves it on her desk where the hot younger man, Mateo, finds it. Soon the two embark on an intense relationship, the chemistry is hot and feelings get deep quickly. But as her husband Ryan begins to realize just how much he’s lost, he works to get her back, to put their family back together. Is Emerson equipped to handle this new love triangle? Does she do what is best for herself or for her kids?

I really liked this book. It showed how families are made to deal with divorce, even if it is an amicable split. It makes both Emerson and Ryan re-evaluate their relationships and understand just what it is that broke them apart in the first place. It also shows how you can get caught up in new relationships and what their effect is on kids. The storyline moved quickly and it was one you’d want to read cover to cover in one sitting.

The story was told from Emerson’s POV, but my biggest gripe is that it left me with the feeling that I didn’t really KNOW these characters, and while I really liked the story, it felt that the characters could have been developed a little better. The relationships felt a little superficial. This is the first book I have read by this author and I will definitely check out her back catalog. If you’re looking for a contemporary romance, and want something a little more mature, this is the book for you. You just may find a bit of yourself in Emerson.

Excerpt

Our kiss is hard and rough, and it has my legs clenching together. His hands go to my ass, pulling my dress up slightly, lifting me up onto the edge of my desk, grinding against me. Wearing a wrap dress today was a good call. I usually wear wrap dresses because they are no fuss, add a nice cinch to my waist, and feel like pajamas. Easy access wasn’t one of the reasons, but I’m thankful for it now.

Wrestling with his shirt, I yank it out of his pants, desperate to feel his skin under my fingertips. His tongue finds my neck, and he kisses a path along my collarbone. I thrust against every hard inch of him. He pulls on the tie of my dress, and I wrap my legs around his waist. Picking me up, he pushes me up against the floor-to-ceiling window.

I can’t remember the last time a guy banged me up against a wall, or a window, for that matter. This is a perk of being with a younger man. Am I really going to do this? In my office? In the middle of the day? He must feel my hesitation because he lowers my legs to the ground, flipping me towards the window, his hard dick pushing up against my ass, his warm breath tickling my neck.

He whispers in my ear, “Number 19. Orgasm in a public place. I’m saying this counts.” I look down the few stories to the busy Atlanta street, the neighboring building. Roughly, he forces my legs apart with his foot then reaches his hand between my legs and pushes my panties to the side. “Your list belongs to me,” he says, his voice hard.
