(From the publisher):
I'm Jacqueline Laurens, Jack to all my friends and eighteen months ago if you looked at my life on paper youd think it was fabulous: gorgeous husband Daniel, venture capitalist, eleven years married, two kids, big house. The not so good part? I discovered Daniel's affair at the worst possible time.
Now Jack's ex-husband has the second house and the Porsche, while she's got the two kids and a whopping broken heart. Her best friends antidote: a spontaneous girls weekend to Hawaii. But when the flu ruins their plans, Jack finds herself facing her 40th birthday in paradise alone. Then she meets Kai, a sexy, much much-younger surf instructor, who reawakens her fun side. Surprisingly, after their sizzling weekend ends, the calls continue, making everyone back home wonder what Jacks gotten herself into. Now, pulled in all directions, a surprise forces her to re-evalute her life, but will she sacrifice her happy new relationship for what other people think is right?
