Why I loved this book: From the first page, it put a big, goofy smile on my face. Sonja is 40, and it’s a whole thing for her that Atlas is nine years younger. A Taste of her own Medicine also has what makes a feel-good romance really good: friendships and family.

"He looks like he could plow my north field without a horse." Sonja Watts needs to re-enter the workforce after divorcing her husband of thirteen years. Taking the advice of her sister Birdie and her best friend Estelle, she signs up for a six-week course for entrepreneurs; hoping that she will learn everything she needs to know to build a business to support herself and her kids. On the first night of class, Sonja is able to ignore the fact that most of the students are younger than her by ten years or more. It's what she expected. But when the instructor walks in, she debates packing up her new twelve-hundred dollar laptop and walking out. Sonja can't remember the last time she looked at a man with little more interest than she would give a sturdy dining room table. She isn't frigid... just disinterested. But wow, did Atlas James grab her interest. Atlas hasn't been interested in dating since he moved back home from California. Adjusting to newfound success in the town where everyone sees him as that big, geeky guy who cut grass for pocket change when they were in high school has been awkward. Aside from a couple of one night stands, he hasn't really wanted to pursue a relationship with anyone until sweet, shy Sonja signs up for his class. Compact, curvy, and juicy in all the right places, being in the same room Sonja Watts ignites all of those giddy feelings he felt when he had his first crush. He wants to know her and he's pretty sure she wants to know him -- even though she seems fixated on the fact that he's younger than her. With her future riding on the success of her new business, Sonja has no time for distraction. Will she be able to keep her eyes on her own paper or will they remain glued to Atlas's biceps and thick thighs?
