The Sex Education of M.E. by L.B. Dunbar Release Blitz

Title: The Sex Education of M.E.
Author: L.B. Dunbar
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: August 22, 2016


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 fuck 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!

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

It was certainly a pleasant change to read about characters that were more mature - middle-aged and insecure but having lived a life.

Emme is looking at getting herself back into the field after losing her husband.  Rather than a relationship she is looking more for experience as her past with her husband didn't exactly rock her boat.  Her husband was not exactly the most supportive or pleasant of men and her self-esteem has taken a hit.

Merek hasn't settled down, playing the field and should be exactly what Emme needs.  He doesn't feel or do connections - a love them and leave them type.  

Both have a lot to learn from their encounters.  While Emme is open about her life and wants, Merek is closed and everything we learn about him is by pure chance, making him a frustrating character.  I found myself completely relating to Emme and her life.  And the more I reflect on this book, the more impressed I become by it.

Author Bio

L.B. Dunbar loves the original legend of King Arthur. Inspired by this classic tale, she pulled over to the side of the road to take notes when it hit her that if King Arthur lived today, he'd be a rock star. A lover of fairy tales, myths, legends, and anything with happily ever after, she loves to read and write contemporary romance. Her Legendary Rock Stars series is complete with the final tale: The Trials of Guinevere DeGrance, but the story began with The Legend of Arturo King. She also wrote The Sensations Collection, which includes five stand alones based on the five senses in a small town setting near Lake Michigan. Raised on one side of that lake, she grew up in Michigan, but now lives on the other side, in Chicago. Mother to four, wife to the one and only, and teacher to hundreds of former students, she looks forward to sharing more stories in the future.
