USA Today bestselling author Stacey Wiedower had barely blown out the candles on her 21st birthday cake when she took her first job as a reporter at a daily newspaper. She later followed her passion to interior design school and spent three years working at a firm with bizarre similarities to the set of Designing Women. Today she funnels that experience into her work as a full-time freelance writer, penning everything from magazine articles to website copy to a bi-weekly column called Inside Design. She also writes romantic comedy, and the zany characters she's met poke their heads into her stories from time to time. Stacey lives in Memphis, Tenn., with her husband, also a writer, and a son who's inherited their overactive imaginations.

From bestselling romantic comedy author Stacey Wiedower comes a story about bucket lists, reality TV, and love despite all modern obstacles...
Four years after completing her first 30 First Dates challenge, blogger and TV producer Erin Crawford is once again racing the clock, this time checking off 35 goals she wants to achieve by her 35th birthday. In the meantime, the network behind YOLO, a reality show based on Erin's bucket list, shifts her from behind the scenes as producer to center stage as a participant. Amidst growing pressure at work and home, including a cross-country travel schedule that never seems to align with her new husband's, Erin has the added stress of a camera following her every move as she checks off her list for a national TV audience. From a wedding fiasco to a fateful dance lesson to a nemesis who's determined to make trouble in her brand new marriage, everything that can go wrong definitely does. So wrong, in fact, that Erin starts to wonder if YOLO is recording her life ... or ruining it.

Erin Crawford is working on her bucket list of 35 things she wants to do by the time she is 35. This list and her job on a reality show intertwine to the point of possibly ruining her life. This story pulls you in almost immediately and will keep you glued to the pages wanting to find out how it ends.
This is a follow up to 30 dates in 30 days (that I didn't read) and while this book can be read by itself, I can see where it might be handy to read the other book first, just to get an intro to the characters and how Erin and Ben came to be together. Erin and Ben have a good relationship but they need to work on their communication and discover this at various points in the book. Perhaps they wouldn't have found themselves in some of the situations had they talked more earlier on. But that provided the tension that the book needed in various places. not a lot, just enough. This book made me think about my own bucket list...well the fact that i do not have one. But since I am turning 50 this year I thought I would do a modified one and choose 5 things to accomplish this year. That ties into what I really took away from this book - that we need to live life and not get stuck in ruts and push the boundaries of what we can do or experience in life before we die. All in all I really enjoyed the book and it leaves you hanging for another one and whether Erin has accomplished #35 on her bucket list!
This is a great book, it is well written and was fun to read! The main character wants to complete certain items on her bucket list before she turns 35. The book has a enough twists and turns to keep you on your toes. I very much enjoyed reading this!
You will feel like you are living the life of the main character. This book is full of twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages to see what happens next.
