Release Blitz & REVIEW ***Getting A Grip by M.E. Carter***

Title: Getting A Grip
A #MyNewLife Novel
Author: M.E. Carter
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 18, 2017


This isn’t my life. Okay, it is my life, but not the way I envisioned it would be.

I wasn’t supposed to be a divorced mother of three when I turned the big 4-0.  Sure, I expected the fine lines, gray hairs and left over baby belly.  What I didn’t expect was expanding our family get-togethers by one… my ex-husband’s new child bride.  Ok, ok, she’s not young.  Maybe.

Did I mention this is not the life I planned?

It could always be worse, I know. I’m lucky to have a mother who loves to babysit, a best friend who loves sarcasm, and a new friend by the name of Greg, who is apparently a child whisperer and tells me my eyes are pretty.

Sigh… Greg.

The perfect, Adonis-like God of a man who keeps flirting with me. At least I think he’s flirting with me. It’s been so long, I don’t really know.

Between birthday parties, a few ill-advised bouts with make-up, and a whole slew of gymnastics classes, it’s finally time to take back some control.

So, while my girls learn all about how to grip the bar, I’m going to learn how to get a grip on my life.  And maybe my heart.

Review by: Jennifer
(5 Stars)
Elena has gone through a brutal divorce, her husband has moved on and married the "other" woman. Now, Elena takes care of their three daughters and just basically lives day to day. No she isn't sad about loosing the husband, he was crap after all, its more that she is sad that she has to share her girls, and that the one that was supposed to love her even with all her "faults" didn't.  When Elena meets Greg, who has also been through the ringer with his divorce, she doesn't want to get her hopes up. After all she couldn't keep her husband happy, but when her bestie helps her with a make over, Elena starts to see the person who she really is, a beautiful one, even if she does have a mom bod. Meeting Greg throws Elena for a loop, he is perfect in everyway, why is he interested in her? Will Elena be brave enough to take that final step with Greg, or will her insecurities get the best of her?

This book hurt my heart!  The way Elena's ex treated her and body shaming her made me cry! This story doesn't really go the way you expect it to, like the absence of a good throat punch when "Barbie" needed it. I love how Elena is with her girls, and this story really depicts the true story of divorce and how people act in front of their children. I'm gonna say something that is gonna shock people,  I loved the ending! It's perfect, even if I was sobbing like a baby! I give this 5 stars and can't wait for the next book from M.E. Carter!
Author Bio

Mother, reader, storytellerME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.
