The 90 Day Rule by Diane Nelson

Sometimes starting over means trying out assault and battery, especially when the object d’ violence is a cheating husband caught in the act. Restraining orders aside, safety comes in numbers and having certain … standards.

For Jessamine chaos and capitulation are facts of life. Giving up dreams to service her husband’s ambitions and enabling the same blind submission in her own daughter ends abruptly, leaving her rootless, homeless and destitute.

For some people, it is the kindness of strangers who make the difference but for Jes it is the unlikely alliance of the mother-in-law-from-hell, a devastatingly handsome basketball coach and a phalanx of determined team members who convince a woman of a certain age that beginning again doesn’t mean giving up or giving in.

The only problem is … there’s that pesky 90 day rule.

“…light, and fast paced… a completely unique kind of romance story, one that looks more like real life than most others I have read. It is sexy without being smutty, something I always appreciate. And I love that a middle-aged woman, with an adult child, can still be portrayed as being sexy.” ~~Amazon Review
