When I meet Joel Matthews, Iâm in an unexpected place in life.
I mean who expects that after fourteen years of marriage to your high school sweetheart.
It hits me while celebrating my birthday with my sisters that Iâm thirty-five and single. Shouldnât I finally date someone other than my ex?
I totally deserve that, right?
After way too many lemon drop shots, Iâm tricked into trying on my younger sister considerate gift as she put it. Did I mention itâs a gag gift? A âmy milkshakes bring all the boys to my yardâ t-shirt and velour sweatpants with âSin-a-Bunsâ written across my bottom which she finds all too hilarious.
Thatâs how Joel finds me, too smashed to open my apartment door and when I do, I take a drunken slip and slid across the floor with my Sin-A -Buns on full display.
Joel doesnât seem to notice. Then again, I swear I heard a chuckle. But no matter, heâs right there to make sure Iâm okay as any knight in shiny armor should do.
Okay, where did that come from? Clearly, Iâm not in my right frame of mine.
When I look up into his gorgeous face, I forget all the reasons why itâs a bad idea to hook-up with my twenty-something neighbor. In fact, itâs a fan-freaking-tastic idea.
(Ride that pony, girl? Did I really just think that?)
Until I wake in the morning with a delicious ache between my legs and a pounding headache. Iâm mature enough not to regret it, but adult enough to realize it canât happen again.
FirstâIâm too old for him. Heâs in his twenties for goodness sakes.
Secondâ Iâm single for the first time in years. Like Iâve only ever dated one guy.
ThirdâShouldnât I date multiple men before I find the one? Wasnât that my first mistake?
Only Joel isnât giving up.
Heâs determined to prove age is just a numberâ
And Iâm his number one.
