Description from the publisher:
Samantha Bradford is on a quest to take back her life and release her inner sex goddess.

At thirty-two, with a body that’s seventy pounds lighter (and counting), she’s determined to start tackling her “bucket list” items one by one, starting with a crazy pole dancing class she’s signed up for.

This is the first book in the Single Wide Female: The Bucket List series.  They do need to be read in order.

Sammy has lost about seventy pounds and is now about 180.  (That means she and I started at about the same place. I am not to 70 lbs, lost yet, but I’m working on it.)  Before she lost the weight, she wrote a bucket list of sorts for when she was ready to take back her life.  The first item, after losing weight, is “learn to pole dance.”  What else will she learn?

I love Sammy’s best friend, Max.  He loves her no matter her weight.  I think we’ll find out he loves her, period.  Sammy is fun, quirky, and sweet.  She’ll call BS on a friend, or herself, equally as needed.  I really like that about her.

This is a short story (approx. 44 pages), as is each of the other stories in this series.  I kind-of like the serial format.  It reminds me of old serial TV where each week was a continuation of a story.  I’d love to read the rest of this series!

Grammar/editing:  A – near perfect
