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 f*ck 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 story!

Once again, L.B. Dunbar has shown that no one can put her in a corner. In fact, the woman needs to be put on a pedestal. And the moment the title makes sense: priceless.
L.B. and I have something in common: As much as we love (and we do) our youthful characters, we both wanted something a little closer to home. L.B. delivered and I ate it up! The leading lady is exactly who she is; a widowed woman of 40 with two kids nearly out of the house. She’s getting back into the dating pool, but (like I would be) she’s awkward, nervous, and yet, still knows what she wants. Love this chick!
I loved watching her emerge from her past and embrace her present and future, even when she was a little wishy-washy. Because, for real, who isn’t a little wishy-washy sometimes? But when she is bold and firm, holy moly is it beautiful! I was so drawn to this MC, I wanted happiness for you so badly, that I could not put the book down.
As for her counterpart, I don’t think I could have asked for a better match. He was strong, scared, determined, and sexy. Ohmigosh, so sexy. The leading man was an engaging mixture of smokin’ hot and sweet-but-not-too-sweet maleness. I FLOVE him. And the scene toward the end…outside the bar???? I swooned. I died. I wanted him for myself.
At the end of day (or book, whatever) this is what you get: A masterful combination of reality and fantasy, love and sex, fear and spunk. I adored every moment.

Author Bio:

I’d love to say I’ve written for 10,000 hours, and that makes me a pro. But I can’t say that. What I can say is I had a story in my head that wouldn’t go away. I thought typing it in my computer would be the end of things, but it only led to another story and another. I love reading, so characters in my head isn’t something new. What is new is my creation of them. Hope you enjoy my favorites as much as I do. Happy reading!
