Denise Crawford attends her twenty-year class reunion in hopes of rekindling old friendships but truthfully, has one thing in mind. Finding out if the most popular guy in school is still as hot -- and single, as she's been told. It's been a long, dry spell since her husband, Michael, came out of the closet and announced he was gay. With a job and two kids, Denise has little time to meet people, and is interested in touching base with someone she's already met.

Ignoring the chuckles and murmured whisperings about Michael, Denise wants to find the object of her desire and enjoy a steamy, one night stand. But will Jerrod Stone be the man she remembers? Will he remember her at all? And who else is sporting fond memories of those long-ago days?

Denise Crawford is attending her class reunion and is dealing with a broken marriage and life as a single mom. Will she meet up with her dream guy, Jerrod Stone?

This is a short, fun read. I always enjoy stories where past loves are revisited and hopefully rekindled and this one took me by surprise. I thought I knew what was going to happen and it didn’t which was very refreshing. The actual scene between Denise and Jerrod made me laugh and had me wondering if the heroine would be heading home all by herself.

I liked Denise. She came across as fun and had a spunky, make the most of a bad situation type attitude despite what had happened to her before the story starts. The dialogue is realistic sounding and moves at a fast pace. I won’t give away what happens to Denise but let’s just say, I was happy for her.

If you’re looking for a fun quick read while waiting to pick the kids up from school or music lessons, even waiting in the doctor’s office, this is the ideal way to pass the time.
