Not Yet 40

Book Source:  I received this book through the LibraryThing Member Giveaway program free of cost in exchange for an honest review. The book was delivered through Amazon.

Favorite Quote:  "There's a fine line between not wanting to hurt him, and leading him on."

Not yet 40 is the first installment in a new series about a set of 30-somethings in Boston. The "episode" is short enough to be read in one sitting. It starts the story of Jessica, Maria, Susan, and Keith, a group of friends going through the trials and tribulations of life. It talks about relationships, dating, single parenthood, sexual orientation, and the ability of friends to see each other through life.

The series has the potential to be funny and interesting. Three concerns. First, this episode starts off with a graphic sexual scene. That is not my taste of reading. The detailed description is not necessary. Second, one of the characters is described as having  "foul" mouth. Again, the language is not to my taste. Third, this episode just introduces a story. It will be interesting to see if the characters and story line develop more fully as the series progresses. Hopefully, it will. The potential is there.
