The Dating Bender by Christina Julian
Here I am, on my knees in front of the Trevi Fountain, hoping like hell the legend is true. That the fountain gives you solace and love by a mere toss of a coin.
Why am I here, exactly? Let’s see…
It started with my parents telling me to get married. Of course, being the good Catholic girl I am, I did.
Needless to say, that marriage nosedived, and my parents weren’t exactly happy about it.
Newly ditched and shamefully disowned, I decided to follow the advice of Babs, a tart-of-a-mentor, who offered me a job in Colorado.
Her advice? Sex…and lots of it.
The temptation of freedom, to do whatever—whoever—I wanted was too damn strong for me to say no.
And that’s how it all started. The men, the sex, the journey…
I was given this book for an honest opinion.
This for me, is a journal of the adventures of Samantha the Catholic girl, who's inner voice is Carrie from sex in the city who is trying to find her way in life.
I liked the mixture of drama and comedy as Sam tries to take control of her life and deals with everything from controlling family, horrible bosses and trying not to feel guilty for wanting a second chance at happiness whatever and wherever that may be.
I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.
