I wrestled with what rating to give this book, but I believe it deserves a four. Yes, there is a lot of profanity scattered throughout--some of it is truly superfluous--but I found the book so entertaining and often quite humorous that it deserved this rating. Mona and Tom are quite a couple, and it is neat to see them making the decision to work things out rather than take the easy way out. I will say that I like to see that in a book. Yes, there are some "sex scenes" and some anatomy is mentioned, but I did not find any of that upsetting. After all, the couple is married. The dialogue between the two is one of my favorite parts of the book. And there are also times that the book is so absolutely ridiculous that you wonder if the scenario could possibly happen. But then again, I think it very safe to say that life sometimes does throw you impossibly ridiculous situations.  I like the fact that Mona spends her time trying to reclaim herself. It is so easy for us to get caught up in the grind of everyday life that we do forget to celebrate our lives. Dreams are forgotten, and fun is pushed aside. It is so neat to see a couple who is willing to reclaim the love and fun they once had.  One of the things that stood out to me was the idea of a bucket list. I have to admit that I have never had one, and sometimes I lose sight of my dreams. My "bucket list" from years ago is honestly not nearly as important to me now. I don't plan to ever be on Broadway or publish a book. But in a way, those dreams came true when I became a blogger and a music teacher. I think you have to be open to your dreams changing--I think Mona was. Be sure to read the epilogue. This is an easy-to-read book that I found quite entertaining, and I think most people would, if you can get past the language. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
