"A best friend is someone you can trust; they make you laugh, they hold you when you cry... they drive you to the sex shop when you're trying to spice up your marriage."

Becky used to be "the fun one." But after five kids, yes five, and ten years of marriage, she is becoming everything she swore she'd never be; complacent, content and boring in the bedroom. Determined to spice things up her marriage, she leans on the one person besides her husband she can always count on for advice; her best friend Janine.

Outgoing and always outspoken Janine has issues of her own; she is tired of living the single life. After a bitter divorce leaves her struggling to find love again, she's no longer content coming home to an empty apartment, and living vicariously through her best friends love life.
Online dating, confused husbands, and flirting with random porn stars lead to nothing but trouble. Because nothing with these two is easy--and nothing ever goes according to plan.


If you are looking for a laugh and a little bit of corky this is your next read.  An adorably funny story of two BBFs, Carter and Ney have added a slight spin to the ride or die bestie concept.  Told in dual character prospective, Becky and Janine are a hoot.  Reminding me of my own besties, these two keep you laughing.

To be honest I thought I was going to get a Thelma and Louise style road trip, less the cliff jumping.  No cross country trips for these two BUT a lot of laughs.  Between sex lessons 101, online dating mishaps, and priceless text messaging, I laughed more than once.  I think most girls will relate to Becky and Janine in some way.

This is my first read from these authors. They complement each other well. The story flowed. At times, I could hear different author voices but it didn’t distract from the overall story. In fact, it added to each characters personally.  The settled mother and the free spirited single woman will be a welcomed addition to your reading library.


About M.E. Carter

My name is ME Carter and I have no idea how I ended writing books. I’m more of a story teller (the more exaggerated the better) and I happen to know people who helped me get those stories on paper.
I love reading (read almost 300 books last year), hate working out (but I do it anyway because my trainer makes me), love food (but hate what it does to my butt) and love traveling to non-touristy places most people never see.
I live in Houston with my four kids, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who was just a twinkle in my eye when I came up with my pen name. Yeah, I’ll probably have to pay for his therapy someday for being left out.

About Sara Ney

Retail marketing and advertiser by trade, I am a university club advisor with a passion for creating awkward fictional characters that readers can relate to. That are real. I enjoy writing fast-paced, humorous manuscripts with empowered female characters.

I love: reading, travelling, meeting new people…. latte’s, rainy days, and sweater weather.

I believe everyone has a story to tell: What’s yours?
