Publisher's Summary

Divorced 30-something Claire doesn't know who is in her dating pool, but she's doing her best to avoid shark-infested waters. Leaving her clueless and insensitive husband behind was a smart move after losing her fertility, but now she's riding the wave of flying toupees, strange men in leather thongs and drunken nights in painfully impractical shoes. Claire desperately wanted to be a mother, but now she'll settle for one middle aged man worthy of a second date.

After a long drought, men are flooding her shores, and she's drowning in choices. There's Justin, the 25-year-old IT boy-genius with the GQ look and cougar fetish, and he won't take no for an answer. A woman would have to be a blind, lesbian nun not to fall for him, but he reminds Claire of her wasted youth. And then the charming but mysterious Dr. Nathan appears, but he's cheating on her with his medical mistress, a demanding cardiology practice.

To further rock her boat, Claire's stable career in publishing has been tossed about by her floundering company's launch of a new line of trendy, salacious books. Cookbooks aren't selling these days, but erotica is flying off the shelves and challenging Claire's attitude about sex, work, and her tempestuous new life.

When her best friend convinces her to buddy up to the aspiring writer who just moved in across the street, Claire rejects the idea. He has already caught her in more than one embarrassing and scantily clad situation. Giving in to her friend's nudging, she tries to ignore the details she discovers about him, including his hard rock night gig and his mesmerizing blue eyes, in the hopes his literary talents can pull her publishing house up from the bottom.

Claire's dilemma begs the question: Are there no men or just too many?

In Feast or Famine

I loved this funny, hopeful story about a young, divorced publisher's HR rep and her zany efforts to find the man of her dreams. From scraping the bottom of the online dating pool to a wealth of possibilities including an office IT guy, a hot biker band lead singer and a handsome cardiologist, Claire stumbles (usually drunkenly) from disaster to disaster in her search for Mister Right, but through it all, she never loses her hope that she will find her own Happily Ever After. This book is full of interesting characters and laughable adventures and offers a delightful weekend of entertainment for rom-com fans.

funny cute sweet

This was such a funny story. The narrator's voice was great! This poor divorced woman who can't have children is out in the dating world. She thinks she "knows" exactly what she wants. Well she was wrong for sure and it's fantastic listening to her "try" to figure it all out. I love happy endings! plus she is a dog lover lol. Truly this is a fantastic read/or listen.

No doubt

Normally I don't write reviews. However, the main characters lack of confidence left me wanting to smack her. The story itself was at times witty and sad. The author did a good job of keeping each character on track and interesting.
