The Awkward Path to Getting Lucky by Summer Heacock

Genre: Women's Fiction
Publisher: MIRA
Release Date: July 25, 2017



In just about a month, Kat Carmichael will celebrate an anniversary of sorts. It's not a typical anniversary. In exactly 34 days, it will mark the two-year anniversary of when she and her boyfriend last had sex. It's been two years since her "special" shut down and refused to allow Ryan to enter. It's been two years of no sex, no intimacy, and certainly no orgasms. Kat's had enough.

She tells Ryan she wants to take a break from each other and really get herself back in working order. Her bakery is thriving and her friends/bakery co-owners are more than happy to lend emotional support, as well as buy her a few toys, as she sets off on a quest to fix what's broken.

What Kat never expects is to find one of their frequent customers becoming her advisor in this quest. He's a physical therapist and very good looking to boot. If he can't be the one to get her personal business back in order, Kat's no sure anyone can.

The Awkward Path to Getting Lucky is blunt, humorous, and pretty magical. Ben, the sexy customer, is such a good guy. Every women's fiction novel needs a Ben in it! Kat's a little clueless at times, but she's certainly enjoyable to get to know. Her friends and all their wackiness had me laughing a number of times.

This is a feel-good story. It may get personal and delve into topics that make some readers squeamish for whatever reasons, but that's a good thing. I'd never heard of vaginismus and didn't know anything like that existed. In addition to just having a fun time reading the book, I also learned something. There's nothing wrong with that!
