Book Description:

Food writer Maggie Marrion is just getting back on her feet after a horrible year, or two, or three. With their twentieth reunion approaching, she invites four of her closest friends from college for a weekend at her beach cabin. What she doesn’t expect is her best friends, artist Quinn Dayton and part-time erotica novelist, Selah Elmore, to play matchmaker. The two plot a surprise that will make the weekend, and her life, a lot more interesting.

Gil Morrow, former grunge musician turned history professor, joins them as Selah’s date for the weekend. After coming face to face with the one who got away, he decides he's waited long enough to get the girl. With the support of old friends, a few wishing rocks, the world’s largest burrowing clam, and a hot lumberjack thrown into the mix, Gil reminds Maggie that forty-something isn’t too old for second chances.

Can we learn to love the life we have and let go of who we expected to be? What happens when the generation from The Breakfast Club and Reality Bites meets The Big ChillCome spend a weekend with these Generation X-ers as they share laughter, tears, life’s ups and downs, old stories, and new beginnings.

 Excerpt 3:

Gil watches her face.
She licks her lips and tilts her head up to him.
He takes a step closer to her, then leans down to brush his lips against hers. With their lips a breath apart, he waits.
Her breathing pauses when she feels his lips on hers. Before she can process they’ve kissed, he pulls away. Going on instinct, she kisses him back. Her body melts with his as she pulls herself closer to him.
Gil moans when she presses against him. He deepens the kiss and she responds by brushing her tongue against his. She fists the back of his shirt.
When he reaches a hand into her hair and tilts her head, Maggie’s head begins to spin. Needing to take a deep breath, she pulls her mouth from his.
He kisses along her jaw, nibbling behind her ear. “God, you are as amazing as I remembered,” he whispers.
“Memory doesn’t do you justice.” She sighs as he trails kisses down her neck.
He kisses her again, cradling her face in one of his hands. She reaches under his thermal to stroke his back.
Leaning back to meet her eyes, he softly says, “I’d be lying if I said I haven’t dreamt of doing that for the past twenty years.”
“I’d be lying if I said it hadn’t crossed my mind several times since Wednesday.” Her joke falls flat.
“Wednesday? Always out of sight, out of mind with you?”
She hears the hurt in his voice and flinches.
“Gil…” she pauses. What can she say? She’s ruining the moment. “Wednesday of this week and many Wednesdays between now and then, I’ve thought about kissing you, being with you.”
“Nice backtracking. My ego thanks you.” He kisses her forehead.
“I’m sorry, Gil.” She looks at him. “For so many things.”
“Apology accepted,” he says, before gently kissing her again.
 Kissing Gil is amazing, and she definitely wants more. Selah might be right about this living in the moment stuff.
“We should go to bed.”
