A second chance at a first crush.

When I met my best friends in college, the lives ahead of us felt infinite and charmed. Twenty years later, divorced and living on a quiet island with my dog, I'm all too aware of how fleeting life is. With our official reunion coming up as fast as the tide in Useless Bay, I invite them to come spend a weekend catching up first.

But when they arrive, they bring an unexpected guest- Gil Morrow, the one who got away. I remember him as a grunge rocker, but it turns out he's even more handsome now as a history professor.

I'd thought my days of romance were long over. One summer weekend, a few wishing rocks, and many bottles of wine later, I'm finding that my story might just be beginning ...

Geoducks Are for Lovers is a standalone novel in the sweet, funny Modern Love Stories series.

This story has it's interesting moments. I enjoyed her description of island life in Washington state and the camaraderie among the former college classmates was fun. I felt throughout the book that something more needed to happen. The only conflict in the story seemed to be in Maggie's head, and that went on and on and on.

I especially liked the location. I felt myself wanting to go there. And, I wished I had a group of friends like her. They were tarnished, but have what is important...a past together. Real friendship. This book was offered for free and my instincts told me to read it. It was a great decision.

I've never been to Washington or Whidby Island but felt like I was there. Maggie has lots of angst which I don't usually enjoy but liked all the characters. Looking forward to reading book 2 and 3 in the series.

very well written, showing glimpses of backstory, which added to the current plop. A variety of characters, most of whom were well developed. I enjoy when the author has other related books, featuring some of the characters, and Daisy Prescott has done this. A good read!

I just finished reading this book. I lived on the bay in Olympia for 31 years and so I had to grab this book when it was offered!! I loved the story of Whidbey Island and everything about beach living. I highly recommend this read. I'm ready to order the next book in the series Ready to fall. Daisy Prescott is now one of my favorite authors!!!

Old friends get together a few weeks before there twentieth reunion. It takes place on a picturesque island near Seattle. The conversations are interesting and often directed to the two singles amongst the group. Both divorced and just maybe they can get over the past to find each other. Fun,sexy, and smart story with believable characters. You will become one of the group.

"What happens when the generation from The Breakfast Club and Reality Bites meets The Big Chill?" I will tell will get a breath of fresh air. I love friend banter and this group has plenty of it. I felt like an additional member snooping in on their weekend. Maggie & Gil have the awkward love found, love lost and love found again aura going and add in feisty one liners from Quinn & Selah and you have a pretty fun group. One I can see myself being friends with and doing the same thing, "pushing" Maggie and Gil together at last. It was easy for me to giggle along, being from their generation I was able to follow along with the jokes from the 90's and appreciate the feeling of being old when you hit forty when you really are not that old at all. I love a book that flows along and can put a smile on your face. This would be the perfect beach book! Loved it.

I LOVED This story!! Daisy Prescott gave us real characters of my generation dealing with real emotion, angst, challenges and just life! The music and area references were completely appreciated, too. Maggie and Gil are 2 very special people, and I would be friends with the whole group! I loved learning each and every backstory!! I also now have a nagging feeling to go to the beach with my college buddies!!! Well done Daisy!!

The author switches between present tense and past tense in her writing. This is not a switch between past and present, it is the use of tense in her writing style. Sometimes this contradiction in tense appears in the same paragraph and is disconcerting to follow. The story drags on interminably and the juvenile sexual innuendos and just plain juvenile sex talk are way over the top. I did not bother to finish this book.

I absolutely loved this book! I often found myself immersed in the story sitting right along with Maggie and her friends having a glass of wine and smelling the salty air of the ocean. Maggie and her friends get together at her cabin for the weekend before their college reunion in the fall. An unexpected guest arrives with one of her friends. Enters *sighs* Gil. Ms. Prescott takes you on a pleasant ride reconnecting two people who could have been but life had other plans. This was a real feel good story and really hit me in the heart with fond memories of vinyl's, mixed tapes, summers at the beach and wishing rocks which I still have because I thought they were cool looking. I will cherish this book for a long time.

Good story about a group of college friends before their reunion. The main character has a lot to come to terms with and struggles to move forward.

I love that there was a really strong focus on the friendships. I also enjoyed the author's way of describing things. Just enough adjectives/adverbs. Didn't feel like she was trying too hard as some authors do. I think I need to go read some more books in the series.

4.5 stars * “I’m not waiting another twenty-two years.” ~Gil * Writing style: 3rd person POV Cover/chapter heading design shout-out: I like the purple color for the font and the beachy feel to it. I also like the shell design for the chapter headings. * Minor spoilers alert!!! I am so glad I found out about the group readalong for this novel which had been sitting in my TBR e-book collection for almost a year. I got to know these characters a short time before when I read their prequel novel, We Were Here which focused on their college years of self-discovery, romantic disappointments and successes. Fast forward twenty odd years later and the gang decides to have a reunion weekend at Maggie's place in Washington state minus (view spoiler). I loved the teasing encouragement Selah and Quinn gave both Maggie and Gil to finally admit and dive into a romantic relationship together. Everyone knew these two were a match made in the stars. There was no time like the present now that they were both unattached romantically. At times, I wanted to shake Maggie for her reticence, but ultimately I understood where she was coming from considering past events in her life. I was so team Gil and applauded his “no regrets” determination to snag the girl this time around, no matter how long it took for her to catch up to his level of readiness. The man deserved a medal for patience. * A favorite moment: “I’ve wanted to kiss you all afternoon. Why weren’t we doing this all day?” “I have no idea.” She breaks away from his lips to kiss his neck. “It was your idea to fly under the radar.” Tilting his head, he gives her more access. Her hands wander down his chest. “It was a terrible, terrible idea.” * And I couldn't get enough of Biscuit, Maggie's dog. Or as I like to call him, the world's best furry companion. Overall, I loved the realistic slice of life feel to this novel. I look forward to eventually continuing with the short stories and subsequent full length novels in this wonderful series of connected standalone novels. * “Life’s messy, with no guarantees, but you still need to live and love. None of us know how long we have here.” ~Jo

After reading We Were Here I knew I had to know more about this characters, in my case, what happened after. The narrative was equally great, the characters were equally endearing and the fun times between friends were equally funny and serious. This is a second chance romance, best friends in college had a night of romance that never amounted to anything, now in their forties and single the opportunity for a relationship arises again, one isn't so sure and the other is sure that there is no letting go this time around. There were some very tender moments that I really appreciated, it was easy to forget that they were older now, I kept thinking about them in the same way I did in We Were Here like no time had passed but then one of them would say something and I would think about all of the things that they had already gone through and survived to get to that point in their lives. We Were Here and Geoducks are for Lovers are the perfect combination, and you should definitely read both it doesn't matter in which order, just READ THEM!

It was very nice to read about the emotional lives of someone older than their mid-20's. Wanting love but not having the nerve to risk exposure can be familiar to anyone. The need for trust and communicatiin is great but the rewards can be exceptional when two friends dare to love.

Book was OK but a bit sappy. Not a fan of stories that you can see the endings midway thru the book. May be cynical but real life rarely turns out so perfectly.

This book surprized me. I like chick lit; I'm of the Baby Boomer generation, and my extended family lives in Seattle and some are grads of Evergreen. But I'm an east coast girl. I kept wondering if this would work in say Maine or the Cape. I really cared for Maggie. Gil grew on, Selah and the CT couple...not so much. This is worth reading
