The first real warning sign that our relationship was doomed came a few weeks prior to our fourth anniversary. During a chat with Sally - arguably my best friend as well as colleague - she speculated whether or not Jeff might propose to me. The thought filled me with dread. Don't get me wrong, I didn't hate him. I actually kind of still loved him but the idea that this was all which life had in store for me depressed me greatly. There was more I had to do; more experiences I was yet to have.
Was he really planning to propose? I certainly hoped not because I couldn't accept. No way. And I have always hated confrontations, so having to say ‘no’ was an extremely unpleasant prospect.
In a way, finding the inappropriate emails from him to an old lover had been a relief. A chance to make a relatively clean break without having to confess uncomfortable truths. I moved out within the month and found myself free but also apprehensive about what might be in store for me next. Would I find what I had been missing?
I wouldn't make the same mistakes again. Starting a new relationship on the rebound, not fully celebrating my newfound freedom were definite 'no-no's. I needed a plan to figure out when I would be ready to settle down. A means of measuring whether I had lived single life to the fullest.
That's how the list was born. While it mentions only the highlights, between the lines I intended to not just vary who with, but also how or where I would get it on.
The Rebound List - what a refreshing idea. After breaking it off with her long term boyfriend, Becky and her friend, Sally, come up with a list of things Becky would like to try: Seducing a virgin, sleeping with a stranger, experiencing a threesome, and a sex with a silver fox. Becky is ready to proudly let her freak flag fly! With the encouragement of a little liquid courage and her very free spirited and supportive friend, she sets off to find out what her boundaries are and whether or not she can make her fantasies a reality.
Becky decides to jump in with both feet and joins FetLife. After searching profiles, she comes across a man who she finds appealing, sets up their first encounter, and the fun begins. Will Becky be able to meet her new goals, or will she find the love of her life in the most unexpected place.
This sexy romp is well written, fast paced, and has a great plot line to go along with the fabulously titillating sexual encounters. Written in four parts, The Rebound List is fun from start to finish!
