Overview

From Candice Dow comes a sexy, soul searching novel about love lost, new beginnings, and the big 3-0. . .

As a successful legal consultant, Devin Patterson's professional life is good. But his personal life is another story. Devin let his true love slip away when his now ex-wife intentionally got pregnant. He loves his six-year-old daughter, but as the clock ticks on his thirtieth birthday, he can't help reminiscing about the past--and he's not alone. . .

With her model looks and her law career, people wonder why Taylor Jabowski is still single as she's approaching her thirtieth birthday. But Taylor knows exactly why: Scooter, the high school sweetheart she broke up with when she was young and foolish. She hasn't been in love since, and with her class reunion coming up, Taylor can't help fantasizing about winning him back. . .

As Devin opens his heart to the idea of a new relationship, and Taylor tries to re-connect with Scooter, their paths cross. They discover they have more in common than regrets from the past. Now that they're older and wiser, can they figure it out?

Candice? We want more! We want more! Kudos to you girl! This book really hit the spot and left me yearning to read more about Devin, Taylor, Clark, Scooter, Jason, Reggie, etc. This was such a wonderful story. I thought I couldn't get over Devin and Clark not making it, until you introduced Ms. Taylor Jabowski! Please hurry with the sequel to this story. I was glued to this book just like the first one! I loved the author's writing style and humor. She is too funny!... Like when Taylor and Courtney kept calling Devin by the name: I Love My People. (you have to read the book to get it) It was great! You will fall in love with the characters in this book. They are like your favorite Daytime Soap Opera Stars. Candice Dow is definitely Tappin' on to a new little mini series with this storyline. Please keep it coming. This is definitely one of my favorites!

Devin Patterson has everything he wants with the exception of love. The woman of his dreams was snatched up by another man while Devin played the fool in his own marriage. Now he's searching for someone worthy of his attributes and he's wondering where all the women with class are hiding. Pressed about finding someone now, he wonders if he's tapped out before he's even hit the big 3-0. Taylor Jabowski had the world's greatest boyfriend in high school. Alone, desperate and tired of the pity, Taylor has decided that she's going to her high school class reunion with the hopes of a love connection. While she knows that the odds are stacked against her, she's not willing to face another birthday without a significant other. A chance meeting and Devin knows he's willing to give love another chance. As time stands still for Taylor , it's too late because she's already skipping towards love. While the two become instant friends, something bigger, stronger is definitely in the air. Will this connection lead to exploration? Oh my god, I loved this book! I couldn't help but feel that this duo could benefit from a second chance at love for dummies! `Tappin' on Thirty' is hilarious, smart and appealing. I found myself unable to put the book down and I was so happy at the way the book bounces between the characters allowing them to tell their unique stories. 4.5

Tappin¿ on Thirty Candice Dow Kensington Dafina, Feb 2008, $14.00 ISBN: 9780758219374 In DC Train Worker¿s Union lawyer Taylor Jabowski looks back to her freshman year in college when she dumped her once in a lifetime love Scooter Evans so that she could play the field. By Christmas she knew she made a mistake, but Scooter, who cried when she said she wanted more than a long distance relationship at separate colleges, moved on and he and his family rejected her. Now at the high school reunion she hopes to have a second chance with Scooter. Although he tells her he has a new love Akua, a fellow medical student, they make love. Not long after that, divorced New Yorker Devin Patterson meets Taylor at the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Black Party. They hit if off leaving her confused and he wary as he has not forgotten the lesson of six years ago when he married Jennifer though good came out of that mistake, his beloved daughter Nicole. As Taylor and Devin fall in love leaving her bewildered as to how she can desire two men, Scooter feels the same way as he loves two women. However, soon there will be a reckoning as Devin and Scooter are close friends having roomed at Princeton together. --- Readers need to make a slight adjustment to the rotating first person accounts as Taylor, Scooter, and Devin take turns as to how they feel. Thus the audience receives an entertaining deep African-American contemporary relationship drama that enables a close look into the hearts of the Black professional class through the prime trio and to a lesser degree Akua. Candice Dow provides a Lovin¿ Spoonful ¿Did You Ever Have to Make up Your Mind?¿ relationship drama. --- Harriet Klausner
