Book Description:

In this humorously touching novel by the critically acclaimed author of Degrees of Love, a woman is blindsided when her high school sweetheart abandons her after eighteen years of marriage.

At sixteen, Kimberly Kirby thought the only thing she needed to be perfectly happy was to spend the rest of her life with Jay Braxton. Twenty years later, she still believes it. As they proudly watch their daughter, Haley, graduate from high school, she imagines her life is as perfect as anyone could reasonably expect. Jay is a formidable attorney, she a freelance writer, and their love as strong as ever. With Haley heading to UC Berkeley in the fall, Kimberly fantasizes about making love on the kitchen table. She has no clue that Jay’s bags are already packed.

Now divorced and determined to squelch her love for Jay, she accepts a gig writing a sex and dating blog for divorcees. As the Virgin Dater, she is on the hunt for love. No-strings-attached nights with a sexy fireman and moving to San Francisco are just what she needs to boost her battered ego and mend her shattered heart.

But just as she falls hard for a talented young chef, Jay fights to win her back. Torn between her bold new life and the comfort of Jay’s strong arms, she questions if there is too much to forgive. The ten thousand I love yous that had passed Jay’s lips can’t be dismissed, but nor can her newfound freedom and the knowledge that her happiness doesn’t depend on Jay.

 My Review: 

Ten Thousand I Love Yous is the first book I have read by Lisa Slabach. I thought it was a good read. I liked that the author was able to create a romance that is not your average cookie cutter romance. It was different and unique from those I have read in the past. It was refreshing to read something new. I enjoyed Kimberly’s story. I know that so many readers would be able to relate to her and what she was going through. She is a happily married woman just when her world crumbles when her husband wants to leave her. She suddenly has to learn about herself, find a new way of life and finding her new identity. It was inspiring to see how she was able to move forward and find the confidence in herself. Just as she becomes this confident woman, she is once again life turns her world upside down. I admire her strength, bravery, courage and the woman she became. I keep to reading to find out what difficult decisions she has to make.

I am giving Ten Thousand I Love Yous four and a half stars. I recommend it for readers who enjoy reading fun contemporary fiction. I would be interested in reading more by Lisa Slabach in the future. I thought this one is definitely worth a read. 

I received a paperback copy of Ten Thousand I Love Yous from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
