Ten Thousand I Love Yous by Lisa Slabach
In this humorously touching novel by the critically acclaimed author of Degrees of Love, a woman’s limits of love and forgiveness are tested when her high school sweetheart blindsides her with a divorce after eighteen years of marriage.
At sixteen, Kimberly Kirby thought the only thing she needed to be perfectly happy was to spend the rest of her life with Jay Braxton. Twenty years later, she still believes it. As they proudly watch their daughter, Haley, graduate from high school, she imagines her life is as perfect as anyone could reasonably expect. Jay is a formidable attorney, she a freelance writer, and their love as strong as ever. With Haley heading to UC Berkeley in the fall, Kimberly fantasizes about making love on the kitchen table. She has no clue that Jay’s bags are already packed.
Now divorced and determined to squelch her love for Jay, she accepts a gig writing a sex and dating blog for divorcees. As the Virgin Dater, she is on the hunt for love. No-strings-attached nights with a sexy fireman and moving to San Francisco are just what she needs to boost her battered ego and mend her shattered heart.
But just as she falls for a talented young chef, Jay fights to win her back. Torn between their shared history and her bold new life, she questions if there is too much to forgive. The ten thousand I love yous that had passed Jay’s lips can’t be dismissed, but nor can her newfound freedom and the knowledge that her happiness doesn’t depend on Jay.
Chick Lit Cafe Book Review:
Although a work of fiction, Ten Thousand I Love Yous by Lisa Slabach is a fascinating realistic love story set in modern times. It has so many twists and turns, that they sets the book apart from many other books in this genre and make it compelling reading.
In the opening pages of this unique story we meet Kimberly, as she prepares for the next chapter in her life. With her daughter off to college, she plans to enjoy this new aspect of her life with her high school sweetheart and husband of many years, Jay. However, he has other plans and Kimberly’s life is thrown into turmoil.
Separated and heading for a divorce she doesn’t want Kimberly gathers herself together and uses her skills as a writer to embark on a new life and a new career writing a dating blog. She also tries dating other men and learns many significant things about herself.
Kimberly is a likeable character that many readers will identify with. She shares her fears and passions, and in doing so she exposes her weaknesses and the cute quirks of her personality. Many readers will see themselves in Kimberly and will laugh, gasp with surprise and chuckle along with her.
While reading this captivating story, I was swept up in Kimberly’s situation, and felt her heartache and disappointment of being rejected in love. I was then taken on a heart-warming journey as Kimberly navigates her way through online dating where she faces the possibility of finding love again. I could only hope for her future happiness.
Superbly crafted with a dynamic narrative, this is a must read for anyone who loves a good romantic story. The reader is kept wondering about what choices Kimberley will make. Will she continue dating and exploring new loves? Will she create a new relationship, or will she fall back into the arms of the man who she has loved since she was 16? I was felt such anticipation as I rooted for her and hoped the very best for her.
This charming book will enthrall and delight readers.
