The Sex Education of M.E. by L.B. Dunbar - Release Blitz and MY REVIEW

Title: The Sex Education of M.E.
Author: L.B. Dunbar
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: August 22, 2016


I’m forty, flabby, and frustrated. Don’t get me wrong, I have a good home, a decent job, and great children. I had a loving marriage for twenty years where we had our ups and downs. It wasn’t perfect; but it wasn’t awful. Then he died. 

After the grief took its course, and the reality of my life set in, I grew frustrated. It wasn’t the bills or the struggle to keep my interest in my work. It was life without a man – the only man I’d been with for twenty years. And before you go all feminist on me, it isn’t that I can’t be an independent woman, but there are certain areas where a man is necessary. 

You need a fuck buddy, my friend said.
I didn’t even know what that meant.
Is it friends with benefits?, I asked.
Better, you don’t even have to be friends, she offered.

Boy, did I need an education in the modern workings of dating, and sex.

A coming-of-an-older-age novel.
Something new from L.B. Dunbar -- a stand alone!

MY REVIEW: The author takes you on a journey of what it's like being over 40, not having the perfect body and hasn't been on a date in years. I do mean YEARS.

This is a story that you can totally see happening. I imagine there will be a lot of people thinking to themselves - holy crap that is so ME! It's so believable!

Em is a little naive when it comes to the modern dating world and sex. She's not sure what terms she should call what it is what she wants. She's widowed but her husband wasn't the greatest husband out there and the sex was just eh. Her fiery friend Gia is going to help her. (Gia is a trip! She cracks me up!)

Em decides she needs a man. Not just any man but a man to just have sex with. One who knows his way around a woman's body. One that will make her feel like the women do in the books she reads.

Em meets Merek and she thinks he's super hot (which he totally is....yummy!) Merek wants Em even though she is the opposite of what he usually goes after. He usually goes after women who are much younger then him and they only want sex with no commitment. This has been working for him and doesn't see a reason to change. He sees no reason to think that having sex with Em is going to be any different.

It starts out just as heart thumping, steamy sex but quickly turns into more. They can't quit thinking about each other but this wasn't part of the deal. BUT do they want more? It wasn't supposed to be more. That's not what they signed up for. They weren't supposed to develop feelings for each other.

They both have been in previous relationships, both have kids, you're talking a lot of work to make a relationship work. Especially if those relationships weren't the best. You add all those factors in and you're talking messy. No one wants messy.

Merek has his reasons for being the way that he is but will he see the error in his ways before Em walks away for good?

"You can call me Uber. I can call you rider." I will never think of Uber the same way again. lol #OldLove works

Author Bio

L.B. Dunbar loves the original legend of King Arthur. Inspired by this classic tale, she pulled over to the side of the road to take notes when it hit her that if King Arthur lived today, he'd be a rock star. A lover of fairy tales, myths, legends, and anything with happily ever after, she loves to read and write contemporary romance. Her Legendary Rock Stars series is complete with the final tale: The Trials of Guinevere DeGrance, but the story began with The Legend of Arturo King. She also wrote The Sensations Collection, which includes five stand alones based on the five senses in a small town setting near Lake Michigan. Raised on one side of that lake, she grew up in Michigan, but now lives on the other side, in Chicago. Mother to four, wife to the one and only, and teacher to hundreds of former students, she looks forward to sharing more stories in the future.
