Blog Tour with Review ... The Sex Education of M.E by L.B. Dunbar


"LB Dunbar has given us a story that will make you love yourself and reach for what you deserve in life. No matter what stage of life you are in I think we can all relate to the emotions! Emme and Merek will set your world ablaze!"
-Schmexy Girl Book Blog


I’m forty, flabby, and frustrated. Don’t get me wrong, I have a good home, a decent job, and great children. I had a loving marriage for twenty years where we had our ups and downs. It wasn’t perfect; but it wasn’t awful. Then he died.

After the grief took its course, and the reality of my life set in, I grew frustrated. It wasn’t the bills or the struggle to keep my interest in my work. It was life without a man – the only man I’d been with for twenty years. And before you go all feminist on me, it isn’t that I can’t be an independent woman, but there are certain areas where a man is necessary.

You need a f*ck buddy, my friend said.
I didn’t even know what that meant.
Is it friends with benefits?, I asked.
Better, you don’t even have to be friends, she offered.

Boy, did I need an education in the modern workings of dating, and sex.


A coming-of-an-older age novel.
Something new from L.B. Dunbar -- a stand alone story!




**I received an ARC for an honest review.**

I LOVED this story. I loved that this couple was older and mature. I loved that both characters were moving on from something in their lives that shaped the people they were. And I loved that both characters and their feelings began to change without them realizing it until it was too late. 

Emme is a year old widow and is on a mission of sexual discovery. She isn't looking for love, relationships and anyone else baggage. All she wants is to get laid and boy does she pick the right guy. Merek Elliot is definitely one of those "mature" men that will capture any woman's attention. Even though Emme wasn't one of his usual "dates" he couldn't help his attraction to her and he was helpless to understand why he couldn't get her off his mind. 

I enjoyed the relationship that grew with these two people and I loved the behind the scenes stuff that was happening and revealed later in the book. I liked that the two characters lives were more intertwined that I thought they would be and I also liked that neither one of them found it easy to forget the other. 

The storyline kept me pulled in and reading for more.  I just couldn't get enough of these two people and I was wanting more. The sexual chemistry that Merek and Emme shared was off the charts and sexy as hell. I love the comedy that was woven into each sexual situation. I loved that at 40 something Emme knew what she wanted...well mostly knew what she wanted.

I don't want to give anything away, because I really dislike that in a review, so I will just say that this book is  great read. I loved these two 40 somethings. 


Author Bio:

I’d love to say I’ve written for 10,000 hours, and that makes me a pro. But I can’t say that. What I can say is I had a story in my head that wouldn’t go away. I thought typing it in my computer would be the end of things, but it only led to another story and another. I love reading, so characters in my head isn’t something new. What is new is my creation of them. Hope you enjoy my favorites as much as I do. Happy reading!
