This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

Boomerangers [boo-muh-rang-ers] - noun, informal: an adult who moves back home to live with a parent after a period of independence. 

Spencer

I love sex. I love the power, the intimacy, the euphoria it brings. Too bad I'm not having any . . . You'd think as New Orleans's most renowned sex therapist that I'd be swimming in single men. In a way, I am . . . except for the fact that one is in diapers and the other two are drowning in preteen hormones. As a single mother of three, my days are devoted to my clients and my kids, and my nights are spent with Fabio, my trusty vibrator. When my world begins to unravel, I have no choice but to move back home. And when my high school sweetheart comes waltzing back into my life, comedy and chaos ensue. 

What can I say? I never said I could pick 'em, but you can bet your ass I know how to fix 'em. 

Cooper

As soon as the ink dried on my divorce papers, I made myself a solemn vow: I was done with relationships. Moving home to take over my father's firm was the plan, until Spencer decided to return, along with three souvenirs from the life she's lived without me. 

I've been in love with the girl next door for nearly all of my life; the rest was spent trying to forget her. I'd give almost anything for a second chance with her, but I have no time for distractions - especially the kind that involve diapers, bottles, and 18-year commitments. 

The problem is, she's already got me by the balls . . . and I'm beginning to feel the noose tightening around my heart. Contains mature themes.

'Savage' and 'Pooper' made me LOL... on the train

This is my first book by Ms. Orgeron that I bought from one of the Audible sales but it sat in my library unread for a long while. Today however, I was looking for something light, funny, and short so I finally listened to this book. It definitely delivered. I took the commuter train home today and had the hardest time controlling myself from bursting into giggles.

Ms. Orgeron's characters Spencer and Cooper aka 'Pooper' were developed well. Unfortunately, the conflict was not that original as it is about a mother who is afraid to commit. Nonetheless, it was still enjoyable listen as portrayed by Jillian Macie (new narrator for me) and Eric Summerer. Loved, loved Savage or Kyle who brought the comedic relief to the story. Well done.

sweet second chance, single mom story

Spencer is a single mom, and sex therapist...who has lost her job. Now she needs to move back to her hometown home, with her 3 boys, and live with her mom. Cooper is recently divorced and has moved back home to take over his father's law firm...and he's living at home until he can get his act together. Neither Spencer nor Cooper expected to see each other after all of these years...see, the pair were hs sweethearts and had made many future plans that never came to be. Cooper is still attracted to Spencer but there is that pesky problem...she has 3 kids and he doesn't want anything to do with rugrats. But, as the pair rekindle their friendship, and move towards more, will there be a forever or will Cooper's dislike of kids stand in the way? I floved this story!! My fave character though, was the youngest boy who said the most hilarious things...and called Cooper...wait for it...POOPER!! This is one of those 're-listen when you need a pick me up'!

Just ok....

The pink banner on the summary page says that this story is sexy.... true single motherhood is not sexy and neither is this story, the book was okay though and kept me interested. Eric Michael Summerer is and amazing narrator!

one-dimensional characters; female narrator weak

I bought this book because I love-love-love Eric Michael Summerer's narration. His delivery is always natural and conversational, and he never fails to make the "spicy scenes" seductive! He also has skills narrating female voices. Alas, Jillian Macie seemed very amateurish by comparison. Her speech was too slow much of the time and she made the female protagonist seem stupid. So I've given a "3" as an average -- "5" for Eric, and "1" for Jillian.

The story had some originality, and some of the dialogue was funny, but overall it was a bit mediocre.

A Little Lackluster

While this one had very good narration and some truly laugh at loud moments it still managed to fall a little short. I think the biggest problems were a meandering plot that never really settled on one direction and the author did a lot of telling instead of showing.
I wanted to love it but I just liked it.

So Good

I loved this nook. Especially loved the way the author introduces the characters and character development. Loved, loved , loved Kyle.

Also, I have two new favorite narrators! They complimented each other extremely well and truly were believable as Spencer and Cooper.

Boom!

Ok I own the paper book, and read it before I bought the audible copy, the story is cute and very funny but, I’m a firm believer of the written word first, and I was somewhat disappointed with the way story was read, with no infliction were it was needed, and it was mostly flat, my preference was for his voice, her as a child was great and even as her character was ok, but when she was referring to herself in the third person it was jus ugh! But the story is great and funny I do recommend. Mari.
