The Sex Bucket List by Prescott Lane
Release Date: March 9th
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Emerson’s a sexy mom of three.
And if you call her a MILF, I’ll kick your a**.
She’s got a sex “to do” list, and I’m just the man to help her check some things off.
But this isn’t my story. It’s hers.
Unfortunately for me, her story involves an ex-husband, a kid that hates me, and a pretty nice shot to my nuts. She’s a woman who thinks too much, always with a plan, a list, but I’ve got a list of my own.
Mateo likes to tease me that I have lists for my lists. But I didn’t hear him complaining when he stumbled upon my Sex Bucket List.
This is the story of how I brushed the cobwebs off my sex life, put myself back onto my list and not only fell in love with a younger man, but with myself, as well.

I’ve got grocery lists, Christmas lists, to-do lists, even honey-do lists — minus the honey. I’m the queen of list making. It helps me keep some semblance or order in my life. Those of you with kids and a job and countless after-school activities know what I’m talking about. So why not a sex bucket list?
I will admit going in that the main thing that called to me about THE SEX BUCKET LIST by author Prescott Lane was the notion of a romance about a woman that was actually close to my age. Don’t get me wrong, I love the books about young love, the NA reads, all of it, but it’s rare to find a book about a woman of a certain age, and I was interested to see what Prescott would do with it.
I can honestly say that THE SEX BUCKET LIST was all that I hoped for, and more. Now, don’t be fooled by the title. Yes, Emerson, a divorced woman in her 40’s with three kids, did write said bucket list during a girls’ night out. But this list is about more than just a way to try new things and spice up her life. Emerson’s bucket list becomes a way to find herself again, a way to appreciate herself just the way that she is, and to understand that others will, too.
Emerson has so much to offer, but her sense of womanhood has gotten buried beneath a failed marriage, the needs of her three children, and a successful career. Seeing her rediscover her sense of self as a desirable woman is priceless, because I believe that so many women go through the same thing. Prescott has really done a fine job of capturing what it feels like to look in the mirror and wonder who the woman looking back really is, and how in the world her needs got lost in the shuffle.
Emerson’s ex-husband, Ryan, and her new flame, Mateo, are just really poles apart. Emerson’s relationship with Ryan is a good one, at least on the surface. As her husband of many years and the father of her children, he and Emerson are at a place where they’re friendly and co-parenting successfully. I’m going to just say this: I did not like him at all. I felt like he was selfish and, while he’s a good father to their kids, his interactions with Emerson, along with her reminiscences about their marriage, make it pretty clear that he’s the biggest reason that she needs to find herself again.
Mateo, though, oh, my goodness. Where are all the Mateos in the real world? Straightforward, honest, and, phew, passionate, he’s all of these things. He happily, and without reservation, gives Emerson the help that she needs working her way through her list, and does it all simply because he cares about her and wants her to be happy and free. Talk about night and day. And, when the big issues come up, Mateo is all about Emerson and her happiness, while Ryan is still mainly invested in himself.
I’m a big fan of books heavy on relationships with friends and family, and Emerson’s got such a great bunch of both. Her kids, her mother, her brother, and her ladies, all give Emerson the support that she needs, and make it a happier, if sometimes crazier, ride.
Bottom line? THE SEX BUCKET LIST is an easy 4.5-stars for me. I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of this gem of a book, and look forward to reading more from Prescott in the future.
