30 Days

OMG Whoever thought a story about death would evolve into something so alive! Reading how Alyssa deals with her grief and moving on was incredible. She doesn’t just forget her late husband, Rob. She mentions him without thought. What a terrific character. Harrison is almost too good to be true. He’s kind, thoughtful and willing to help Alyssa to more forward. Neither wants or needs a relationship but the sexual games they play may be more than they thought. I absolutely loved this book. Rob even came alive and he’d been dead for two years! Terrific story with so much depth and insight. I experienced all kinds of emotions as Alyssa dealt with letting go, starting over and outside influences. This is a must read.

Alyssa marred Rob young. She’d never really dated anyone else and couldn’t imagine her life without him. But, over two years ago Rob became ill and died leaving Alyssa a widow. Before he died, he talked about her moving on and left her a letter and 30 cards with instructions for 30 days of passion. Alyssa pretty much forgot about them until she noticed Harrison in the hallway. For the first time, she begins to think about life without Rob. After meeting Harrison and learning that he will only be in town for 3 months, Alyssa shares the cards. Harrison agrees to help her but will this exploration turn into something neither of them wants or expected?

Book Blurb for 30 Days

For years, Alyssa has been going to bed with a memory. Is she ready to wake up with a fantasy?

Some people wait their whole lives to find their soul mate, but not Alyssa Barrow. She met Rob at nineteen, and they were set to live happily ever after—until he became ill. In his final days, Rob urged his beautiful, young wife not to abandon happiness—or pleasure. He even left her a special gift, a sexy game plan to help her move on: Thirty cards with instructions for thirty days of passion. You’ll know when the time is right, he’d said. Now it’s two years later, and when Alyssa meets her hot new neighbor, Harrison Kemp, she begins to think the right time is right now…


From his sculpted thighs to his devilish grin, Harrison is the kind of man women want. Before she can lose her nerve, Alyssa tells Harrison about her long-ignored cards…and asks him to help her fulfill them. It’s a favor he’s more than happy to, um, perform. With his skillful touch, and the hot press of his lips against her skin, Alyssa finds herself re-awakening to life—and a host of other sensations. But what began as not-so-innocent fun soon grows into true intimacy, and Alyssa realizes she’s opening herself up not just to sex…but to love. When it comes to a future with Harrison, what’s really in the cards?


Saucy, heartwarming, and insightful, 30 Days explores the agony—and the ecstasy—of starting over, and how a little encouragement, and a little courage, can go a long way…
