The Sex Bucket List was my first read by Prescott Lane and whilst I liked the premise, I didn't enjoy it quite as much as I was hoping to.

"Are you looking to be on my list?"
"I own that list."

Centralised around on Emerson, businesswoman, mum of three and divorcee, this is a woman's quest in rediscovering herself and Lane injects a good dose of real which I very much liked; the trials and tribulations of navigating through life post-divorce with kids who aren't adapting particular well, the gu

Emerson Baker is a PR and Marketing exec for her family-owned private commuter airline and a divorced mother of three. She's really not moved on emotionally since her divorce and her ex keeps sending her mixed signals. When she comes across the sex bucket list she and her two friends created on a buzzed girls night out some time ago, Emerson decides to take action just as the handsome Mateo Reyes sends her a clearer signal about his intentions.

I absolutely loved this story! Emerson is the 40-so
3 Stars

Overall Opinion: This was a pretty light, enjoyable read. I didn't expect to be wowed tbh, and I really wasn't. I did, however, expect it to be hotter! With a title and premise like this one, I was hoping for some fun scenes of them working on the list. While there are some scenes that crossed out items, they are definitely pretty tame and not what I was expecting. I didn't fully feel their connection either. I get the lust part, but love? Not so much. The h was a little neurotic, and t

I want a man who wants me.
Not one who needs to think about it.

Loved this book.
It wasn’t a usual romance with fictional characters, magical to-the-best transformations and unrealistic twists. It was raw and real.

The book wasn’t perfect, but this made it perfect for me.

Heroine, 40+. Hero 30+. Age-difference approx. 10 years.

I highly appreciate and support the books with mature heroines.
It was awesome to read about love story of an adult woman.

I was really surprised by The Sex Bucket list. First off, this isn’t a smutty book. It’s a good romance book with a light-hearted feel to it. If you are a mom, you will completely get this book. There are so many times I was thinking the same thing the Heroine was doing or thinking.

I didn’t think I would like this book because it has an older woman (in her 40’s) and the Hero is younger (in his 30’s). I also think the whole sex list is kind of silly, but the book got so many gre

I really really loved this! This book is about a divorced single mom wit a sex bucket list. Emerson finds her sex bucket list she made after her divorce and decides to finally give it a go. I loved that Emerson was a real mom with real kids ( not perfect little angels lol ) I mean I don't know about anyone else's kids but mine can be crazy sometimes! I absolutely loved the hero Mateo in this book he was so freaking sweet and alpha and pretty much just freaking perfect. This book is hot as well. ...more

The Sex Bucket List
is the first book I've read by Prescott Lane. I must admit, the blurb was what drew me into reading this book. For some reason, I was really anticipating a more romantic comedy than what's here. This book has a lot more emotional depth than humor, centering equally on not only a woman getting the ole cobwebs out but a woman also moving on emotionally after divorce.

There's a certain level of the feels with The Sex Bucket List. Emerson is a divorced mother of three.

There's a reason why I love Prescott Lane's books so much.

It's because she gives us the most brutal and honest truth in her stories. You can only relate to her characters. They make mistakes, they do stupid things, just like you and me. But they make amends, accept their flaws and try right their wrongs... Just like you and me.

Emerson is a divorced mum of three. I am not divorced and I have only one kid. And yet, it sounded like Emerson's actions resonnated in me. Not all of them but I understoo
I absolutely ADORED this book! This sweet, sexy, and unique romance had me laughing one minute, and tearing up the next. It was so raw, real, and it squeezed my heart on multiple occasions. It was so refreshing to read a story where many women today could relate to this vulnerable, yet strong heroine. THE SEX BUCKET LIST was such an entertaining and fulfilling love story. I know for a fact, that this will go on my re-read shelf because it's the kind of story that will lift you up on the worst of ...more

I've just finished this book and I don't think I have ever swooned so much while reading a book. Amazing.

I absolutely adored Emerson's journey, so many true to life dilemmas with emotional life choice moments. I absorbed the plot like it was water & I was coming from a drought

It's so refreshing to read a story about a hot MILF for a change! Sure we love a hot Alfa male, who doesn't?! But it's nice to change gears!!

"When you're young and use the "L" word, it's a lot simpler. I think love in general is simpler when we're young. Perhaps as we age, we complicate love--and everything else--so unnecessarily."

We read The Sex Bucket List based on the recommendation from a friend and dove in without reading the blurb. We love going in blind!!

4 stars!!!

“I want a man who knows he wants me. Not one who needs to think about it.”

Prescott Lane dazzled me with a hot pink flirty cover and a synopsis that caught my attention and the story within did not disappoint. The older generation are often a deprived bunch in the literary world and I love nothing more than reading a story about someone in my age group and this one definitely ticked that box.

Emerson had only ever had one partner, from high
Emerson is a now single mom to 3 kids after divorcing Ryan two years ago. Shortly before her divorce, Emerson made a drunken sex bucket list with her friends. She stuffed it away in her purse and forgot about it. That is, until she randomly stumbles upon it now. And after being completely single the past two years, Emerson thinks it’s time to maybe fulfill all her sexual fantasies.

Mateo is Emerson’s younger and wildly attractive coworker who starts taking interest in her. And when he gets ahold

I have to say that I am so disappointed with myself. I have never read a Prescott Lane book and I just don't understand why I haven't. If everything she does is like this, I will be living in Prescott Lane heaven when I make it to her backlist. Seriously, this book is perfect.

The Sex Bucket List by Author Prescott Lane is an over 40, older woman, younger man, romance novel.

“I want a man who knows he wants me. Not one who needs to think about it.”

Emerson's marriage to the love of her life ended, but she can't seem to move on. Finding out things about her ex, it spurs her to examine her life. It also doesn't hurt that she runs across a special list made in the company of her friends, Layla and Poppy. Now, what to do with the list…that’s where a special man comes in.

Emerson this girl has made me laugh out loud, I have cried with her and fallen in love along side of her.
When all you have ever known is mediocre and not much to write home about and a night fuelled with alcohol and the friends you love the most leave you with not only a hangover but a "sex bucket list " you know it's time to start living, to open new doors and try new things..... who gives a dam if your not 20 any more, it's your life and it's time to live, but for Emerson it's not that easy.

WOW!! What a read this book turned out to be. I just love it when a book contains everything. When you go from laughing so hard you cry and then sob on the next breath, you know that this book is completely worth the ride and what a ride it was.  I am so glad this book was exactly what it said on the tin.

The chemistry that run through this book was off the chart. Mateo and Emerson were amazing, the game of cat and mouse was a dangerous game to play with a list like Emerson's. This book containe
According to reviews too realistic, sex with hero just on the last third of the book, cheating (I see as it is). And (ex)husband who starred in the 1st sex scene with h. Just too real life everyday routine that honestly I saw it happened with my cousin. Her kids were 17 and 15 and her boy friend was 19 years younger. They're still together for 5 years now.
So, I watched the reality show. Lol

***5 ‘I’ll Always Give You What You Need’ Stars***

The title was the lure, I mean who wouldn’t at least pause and consider reading the blurb when the title of a book is “The Sex Bucket List”?, If nothing else you know your damn curious to find out what is on the list. But it was the blurb that was the hook: A woman looking to love herself again and a man more than willing to help her get there. There was no way I could pass that up and I loved every second of it! It was sweet, smexy and real.

Don't get me wrong I enjoyed reading Emerson's story but it wasn't what I expected. Her story was real, raw and intense. In the Sex Bucket List, Emerson is a divorcee, mother of 3 who wants to get her life back on track. We follow Emerson in her new life , full of obstacles, challenges and uncertainty.

The Sex Bucket List by Prescott Lane
Standalone Contemporary Romance
I grabbed The Sex Bucket List by Prescott Lane as soon as I saw that it was a divorced woman in her forties. From the title, cover, and the original blurb, I totally expected a romantic comedy. And while there are a few funny lines, I would not call this a romantic comedy. I am actually very torn on this book. I wanted to love it so much, and there was a lot I did love, but some things didn’t really work for me.

I was interested in this book from the first time I saw the description… y’all Emerson is so cool. I can identify with her in so many aspects and traits she has. She is someone everyone knows in some way. She is funny, thoughtful, overthinks everything, plans, makes lists, and tries to control everything like every woman I know. Once I learned her backstory I found how strong and how stubborn she is. I saw a lot of my friends in her character, and I love that she got this story. I saw all of our ...more
