Title: 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…

The plotline sounds predictable but I was loving the journey getting us there. Both characters are very likeable. Christine d’Abo has a knack for writing that made you feel this was real and down to earth. I felt Alyssa’s struggle with her feelings in her heart but also in her head. She was confused and I felt for her. Harrison was genuine. Even though the ground rules were set, he had trouble at times sticking to them too. I really just loved him! He helps Alyssa not only in the bedroom, but also helps her to see she needed to break her mold of what she knew about men. The only problem…she’s getting attached-and she knows it. Her friends with benefits plan isn’t working for her anymore but what can she do??
This is my first book by this author and it was a good one! A bumpy ride, but worth it in the end! This book is a standalone novel and although part of a series, it has a conclusion. The epilogue gives us a lead into the next book and I am sure it will just as entertaining!
