Having your cake and eating it too is something everyone on the planet wants in life. For some, it is the happy family with two monsters for kids that no matter what happens, they can do no wrong, some it is fame on the big screen, being stalked by paparazzi and others, it is to travel the world seeing all that mother nature has to offer. Gag me with an overstuffed pillow. Don’t get me wrong, I wanted it all, but my vision of happiness is the dream job, the dream car, the awesome apartment and a plate of bacon all to myself. The only thing I didn’t want was a man. In my experience, men only cloud your judgment and replace your dreams with theirs.

Things were going according to plan until fate, karma, destiny, fortune or whatever you want to call it stepped in and said “Oh wait, no, I don’t think so.” and took it all from me. 

For now I’m stuck mooching off my best friend and working desperately trying to figure out a way to get it all back. That is until fate slaps a Jesse in my face. But let me start from the beginning. So grab a plate of Bacon or your favorite snack and let me tell you all about it.

At the beginning of the book, we are introduced to Kelly and her best friend Ashley, with whom she lives. The two have been best friends since they were very young and Kelly knew she wanted to become a social worker. Between the two, Ashley has never really grown up, but Kelly - her family wants more for her. Kelly's mother wants her to settle down and have a family. I had to laugh when she speaks of her families concerns: "No Grandma, I am not a lesbian." "Yes, Grandma, we live together." "No, Uncle Dicky, I do not kiss her." Ha ha .. isn't that the epitome of every family discussion if you're not married with kids, by the time you are 30?
Anyhow, Kelly received an invitation to her cousins wedding, so she thought since she was recently laid off from work, she would give dating a shot. Eh .. why not? Nothing better to do!
After being rescued from a hellacious date of Star Wars talk and extremely boring conversation, she couldn't get Jesse of her mind. He smelled good, he looked good and oh .. his voice. All this plus a K9 cop ... totally alpha! Sounds great, right? Add in humor and you've found Jesse! I mean, just the interruption of Kelly's date alone will tell you how much of a smart ass he is. You HAVE to love a funny man. A man who can hang with the big boys!
Throughout the story, I found myself laughing out loud. The connection between the two is great. Oh, and Ashley? She is always right there. This book was a quick, cute and funny read. I like a book with a good flow. No hiccups, it just works. That's Kelly. Pick up your copy today and get ready for a good time.

Rae Matthews is a Minneapolis, Minnesota native who moved to La Crosse, Wisconsin in 2002 for a guy, of all things. There she started off as a bartender at a neighborhood bar, eventually moving into telecommunications. Years later she is now a wife and a wicked stepmother. It's a good thing she is a good cook, or they may have tossed her out on her tushy years ago.

Rae is also known for being a bit of a goofball. She loves to see people smile, and doesn't mind if they are smiling and even laughing at her, not with her. Her motto is, "Life is too short to not laugh as much as you can." 

Over the years Rae regaled her friends with her stories for years, and she loves to tell them, even if her friends didn't want to hear them. But now she is finally ready to share her stories with others.

As time goes by, Rae hopes to find more time to travel and take on new challenges while continuing her joy of telling stories, crafting, cooking and generally just having fun.
