5 OMG Stars
Review by Natasha Gentile
Oh my lord, I’m right now picking my jaw off the floor.  I've just read the last page and my jaw flew to the floor and I’m at a loss for words…

What the hell, and then I did it..I did what probably every single person who read this book did.  I went back to make sure I read it right. Surely there is a mistake, it can’t be??  How is this possible??? NOOO I obviously read this wrong.. Nope still the same words even the tenth time around…Let me start at the beginning of this little gem.

Meet Aurora Alexander.  Freshly divorced.  Single Mom…Hoping to get back her self-esteem.  Her ex-husband did a number on her.  I mean high school sweethearts.  Married at the age of 19..Pregnant with her first child, on bed rest, a high risk pregnancy, obviously he is going to cheat.  I mean it’s her fault she can’t have sex right?  Wrong, you’re an idiot and deserve a kick in your ass.  When she finally catches him in bed with the babysitter she decides that she can do better. 

So now she is on her own. Her and her wonderful 4 year old son.  What is a single parent to do?  She joins a dating site…I mean how bad can it be right?

Does anyone truly ever know another person?  My answer to that question would be no.  Even the most open and honest people have dark secrets, shit they would never reveal to anyone.  You know you have those types of secrets, we all do.

So here she is on the dating site Fish in the Sea. Let the chips fall where they may. I mean it’s like a new toy right?  Remember when we first opened our Facebook accounts, how excited we got when we got a friend request?  How excited we got when someone liked your picture, it was like the coolest thing ever. 

I don’t know about you, but first thing in the morning I lie in bed and scroll through my cell phone.  Facebook, Google +, Twitter, email.  Those all come first even before brushing my teeth.  I have always been like that and maybe that’s why I am such a social media guru.  It’s both a blessing and a curse.

So now her profile, StrawberryMom, is gathering all kinds of interest.  And her message box slowly but surely starts filling up. I put myself in her place and it would be so exciting to be the center of attention, I’m like that.. Center of attention, it’s the best..Some men are great some are down right douches…

StrawberryMom  do the curtains match the drapes?

Now I wonder does  this actually work?  Does someone in the right mind answer guys like this?  

So the dating begins.. Who to choose, who to cross off the list, who doesn’t even make it on the list…  We go through the journey with her and it’s such a funny ride. 

Talking with these men was slowly becoming the highlight of my day.

I mean her first sex experience is via Skype.  Do people actually do that, apparently it's not unheard of..She goes on dates and finally hits it off with a man who both entertains her and gets her motor going, if you know what I mean..  Jackson Jackson Jackson, if I ever get single I’m hoping you're at the end of my profile…

Jackson intrigues me unlike Brent or Wesley ever have.  I think mainly because I have always dated the pretty boys like Wesley and Colin;  well manicured men who have no idea how to change the oil in a car, or fix a loose floorboard.   He isn’t clean shaved, and his short brown hair isn’t perfect in any of the pictures we have shared.  But man, his blue eyes are stunning.  He is just your average single guy, living an average life running his landscaping company and living country life.

Yes, I will pick him..He get my rose..So they start with the getting to know you phase.  Little does she know the danger that lurks in the shadows.  Showing up at night, breaking into her house..It’s nuts how something that is suppose to help you find your soul mate, can actually make you lose your soul.  

Now the question is what is the statistic for living happily every after?
