Six years with my knight in shining armor.
Four years with my knight in dented armor.
Two years with my knight in rusted armor.
It is time to make a change. Time to find myself, even if it scares the hell out of me.
I, Makenzie Mayfair, am leaving my husband.
This is my chance to begin again, to rip my backbone out and yell, “I’ve found it.” It may take time, it may take new friends, a job and even a jerk of a boss who is annoyingly handsome, but I will get there.
I'm determined to be who I want to be, and plan to have a whole heap of fun along the way.
I'm thirty-seven, a mother, a divorcee, and I’m ready to date again.
I need a man willing to love me for who I am, despite what size I am. Only finding such a guy is harder than it’s cracked up to be.
Afterall, I'm a little clumsy and just a tad outspoken… that is unless I’m in front of a man so good-looking my panties melt. Then I become an absolute weirdo.
Case in point: Vice Salvatore. Stunning. Growly. And also my boss.
Thank God his a**hole attitude put my racing heart at ease and changed my lust to hate.
Nope. I don’t care for him. Won’t. I’ll continue to ignore my ladybits and stay strong.
At least for a while.
The one day English teacher Reagan Wild is late for work—and looks like she dressed herself in the dark—she remembers Carter Anthony, a well-known football star, is coming to the school to deliver a talk to her overexcited students.
While Reagan knows Carter from her high school days, since he was her past crush, she wasn’t ready to see him again. At the time, she hated being invisible. But right now, she wished she could simply disappear.
Carter Anthony is keen to give back to his hometown, but what he doesn’t expect is getting something in return. When a chance encounter with Reagan, the shy girl from his past, happens, he knows instinctively this woman is supposed to be in his life.
With an embarrassing ability to blurt out whatever’s on her mind, Reagan doesn’t understand Carter’s attention. She has no doubt, though, he’ll soon realize his mistake when he discovers just how crazy she and her family are. But no matter what he sees, what he hears, or how her looney family behaves, he doesn’t run. In fact, Carter’s family seem just as unique as hers.
Through dog poop, naked yoga, and the paparazzi’s, can Carter and Reagan have any hope in love, even when it’s fumbled?
When Brooke Baker first meets Dustin Grant, the attraction is instant. Add in how he doesn’t cringe at the mention of anal beads, then she’s crushing hard. With a chance second meeting where he’s in need of help with a charity dinner, Brooke is more than ready to step in.
Despite her being dressed to the nines, her perfect day out with the handsome football player doesn’t go as planned. You see, Dustin already has a date for the night. Brooke’s instead there to look after his son, Benjie.
Since it’s obvious Brooke isn’t Dustin’s type, she pushes away her attraction and moves on.
That’s all fine… until Dustin turns the tables and decides he’s interested after all. But Brooke isn’t prepared to lower her guard, nor does she want to be a backup.
Can Dustin woo her with his charms, or will he bumble the whole thing and miss out on the chance of something special?
NOTE: Bumbled Love can be read as a standalone or after Fumbled Love (Reagan and Carter's story)
