I’m Emerson, and my “to do” list is longer than I’d like. You might wonder what kind of woman comes up with a sex bucket list? Answer — the kind who’s been in a sex drought, has two crazy girlfriends encouraging her, and one too many bottles of wine.

This kind of list requires special skill. And I have just the man in mind to help me. He’s younger. So that checks one thing off my list. And he’s the kind of man every woman should sleep with at least once in her life. The kind of man who knows his way around a woman’s body. And God, I’d like him to know mine.

Armed with new lingerie and a fancy high-tech vibrator, I’m taking charge. Of love, of life, and my libido. How hard can that be? Well, judging by the rate of pole dancing injuries, I might be in trouble.

But how much trouble can one woman get in? Giving your panties to a stranger isn’t illegal in Georgia, is it?

Grab a pen and make your own Sex Bucket List!

A night with girlfriends and too much wine leads to one doozy of a To Do list. Which wouldn't be so odd because Emerson's the undisputed champion of To Do lists, but this list isn't about doing for her kids, her job, her home. This list is about doing for her.

Sex hasn't been a major part of Emerson's life since she got divorced. Life is crazy as it is; her lists keep her on track. Except she's neglected herself while caring for everyone else. It doesn't help that her ex just doesn't know how to stay away, keep his mouth shut, or make up his mind. Her confusion over that whole situation is understandable, especially when you take a good long hard look at her and know she's deserving of so much more.

She doesn't need one who's uncertain in any area of life. She deserves the kind of man who will like her, love her, protect her, and fight for her.

We find this man in Mateo.

Age difference aside, he is everything Emerson needs and wants. He's waited patiently for his chance to be with her. Her Sex Bucket List is his in. Except once he's in, he has no intention of leaving, no matter what. He's here for the long haul and he'll do what Emerson's ex didn't. He'll like her, love her, protect her, fight for her, provide for her, and take care of her. There isn't anywhere else he'd rather be except next to Emerson for however long they have on this earth.

This story is engaging and raw. The characters deal with real life issues. If you've been through a divorce, you can relate to Emerson better than I. If your parents divorced when you were a child, you'll understand her children's roller coaster emotions. And if you are the person who waited for your chance to be with someone like Emerson, you'll connect with Mateo.

This story might be fiction but it resonates deeply with reality. Ms. Lane is a new to me author and she's made her mark with this story. It's a delightful mix of humor and seriousness, of calm and chaos, of uncertainty and absolutes, and of living and learning and loving.

Prescott Lane is the Amazon best-selling author of Stripped Raw. She's got six other books under her belt including: First Position, Perfectly Broken, Quiet Angel, Wrapped in Lace, Layers of Her, and The Reason for Me. She is originally from Little Rock, Arkansas, and holds a degree in sociology and a MSW from Tulane University. She married her college sweetheart, and they currently live in New Orleans with their two children and two crazy dogs. Prescott started writing at the age of five, and sold her first story about a talking turtle to her father for a quarter. She later turned to writing romance novels because there aren't enough happily ever afters in real life.
