Stealing Jason Wilde - #BookBeginnings on Friday and The #Friday56

    Four fifty-ish women, a week-long getaway in the Hamptons, and a minivan full of booze.  What could possibly go wrong?
     I loved getting to know these characters, each one distinct and memorable. Dee Ernst's humor is right on target too. This is a post-chicklit story of women in the prime of their lives - open to adventure and experienced enough to know what they want. But in this story, they get much, much more than they anticipated.

Genre: Women's Fiction / Humor
Book Length: 220 Pages
Amazon Link: Stealing Jason Wilde
Author Website: Dee Ernst

FYI: I've featured two other terrific books by this author on my blog:
Better Than Your Dreams
A Slight Change of Plan

Book Beginning:
    You know that famous saying "What happens on Dune Road stays on Dune Road?"
    Wait - maybe it's really not that famous. The famous version is about Las Vegas. But are you familiar with the concept? That there are some places in the world where your choices are based on a completely different reality and your actions have no consequences in your day-to-day life? Where you are allowed, even encouraged, to behave in a different way, and , above all, it is understood that those two separate worlds must never intersect?

Friday 56 (from 56% on my Kindle):
Here was Andrew Sean Mooney - smart, funny, handsome, sexy, a great kisser, and he liked his home fries extra crispy, just like I did. When I looked at him, I wanted to immediately pucker up.

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
    After her divorce, librarian Annie Reynolds thought she’d closed the book on love for good—it just wasn’t part of her safe, comfortable routine. But if there’s anyplace she can relax and have a little fun, it’s Dune Road, where she and her closest girlfriends return for their annual getaway in the Hamptons. She knows it’s just what she needs to escape her empty nest (and empty bed).
    A chance encounter with a ruggedly handsome local promises Annie just that. But when one of her friends turns a simple flirtation with B-list movie star Jason Wilde into seduction—and Jason accidentally mixes a few drinks and his back-pain medicine—the ladies end up with a very high-profile houseguest. The media calls it a kidnapping, and before long, the FBI is on the hunt.
    Soon the ladies’ tame little trip has turned into the adventure of a lifetime. But will this case of mistaken misdoing sabotage Annie’s second chance at love, or will she have the confidence to take matters into her own hands to find her happily ever after?

  1. I'm glad you enjoyed this one. It seems like a good book.

  2. This sounds like such fun. The 56 had me giggling. I love it - going to have to add to my TBR.

    Here's my Friday read - The Girls by Emma Cline.

  3. Love all of her books. This is already on my list!. Great teaser:)

  4. Sounds fun and perfect for my summer reading list. I'll check out this author:)

    MY Friday 56 from Save The Last Dance

  5. This sounds fantastic. I'll have to look for a copy soon! I'm featuring a historical mystery this week - These Honored Dead by Jonathan F. Putnam. Abraham Lincoln stars. Happy reading!

  6. This sounds like a fun read! I love when something spirals out of a control and it sounds like it seriously does in this one!

  7. A fun weekend read! Sounds a bit like Desperate Housewifes! Hope you enjoy it. Here's my Friday Meets:

  8. I love both snippets! It sounds like a laugh-out-loud read! Happy weekend!

  9. The cover sure doesn't match the age of the gals in the book. I'd say it was a teen book from the cover.

  10. Well that summary escalated quickly! This book sounds like its a lot of fun! :)

  11. I adored this book when I read it! Love seeing older gals featured in romcoms. They're so much easier for me to relate to than the 20-somethings who've never done anything ;)

  12. Every now and then I am in the mood for a contemporary romance and this one sounds like fun. Next time I am wanting one I will keep an eye for it. Happy Friday!

  13. This sounds like an interesting one. :)


  14. I want to read this one. I'm going to add it to my wishlist.

  15. Oh, this one sounds like all sorts of fun! You must have been smiling a lot through this. Happy weekend!

  16. Hi Sandra,

    Whilst this probably isn't one for me, it does sound like rather a fun, easy-going read for summer.

    I have several friends of a certain age, who tend to want to recapture some of their past, youthful exploits, although I am not really a part of that scene.

    It sounds as though Annie has definitely found happiness on her adventure - so the best of luck to her and I hope she gets her man :)

    Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend.


  17. OMG, this sounds absolutely hilarious and utterly cute at the same time!

  18. It sounds like fun. I'm use to younger people in Chick Lit. I like Chick Lit.

  19. This sounds like it could be a really fun read! I can see this being made into a movie - it would make me laugh to see it - here's my Friday meme

  20. Hey, the main character's a librarian! :)

    Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings) and my TTT.
