When New Jersey-based sports radio producer Carla D'Agostino receives a save-the-date for her ten-year high school reunion, she is thrown into a tailspin. She is miserably single, living at home with her old-school Italian-American family, and miles away from her dream job as a sports talk radio host. She voices her discontent to her closest friends, the stunning Andrea, cheerful Katie, and playboy Dante, and they encourage Carla to stand up and fight for the life she wants. Inspired by their words, Carla sets her plans in motion. She enlists the help of a personal trainer, tapes a sports commentary demo with Dante for her unconventional WSPS boss Dan, and gets back into the dating game for the first time since her heart was broken by her first love. But the universe has different ideas for Carla than she has for herself, and she suffers setback after setback: Dan gives the afternoon host position to a Los Angeles import, and, worse yet, offers Dante a gig, which he accepts, much to Carla s hurt and dismay. More determined than ever, Carla continues to throw herself at life with gusto, and a series of surprises, both good and bad, lead her straight into the arms of a love that never really left.

Ten Years Later is a story like no other book I have read. It’s an extremely relatable book. Once I got into this book it was hard to put it down. I’m not quite sure why I haven’t seen this book everywhere! I mean this is every woman, a woman that most will feel a strong connection to and the events that she went through. 

This is a book that I’m sure to reread and would LOVE a signed paperback!! I recall feeling a lot of the same things that Carla discussed most of my life, not just for the 10 year reunion… that I may have just skipped!! It’s so hard to be a person today, in the social media world. Everything is out there for everyone to see and share. Everyone has perfect lives and it’s hard to share when we feel ours doesn’t meet with social expectations. Like I said, Carla is relatable! 

I really felt like Carla was a just regular person, just striving to do more, do better and what better motivation that impressing your previous friends? Carla was such a down-to-earth woman. I really liked that she wasn’t this perfect character and it was great to see her grow and become more assertive throughout the book. The groups of friends, characters in this book were a great addition and I loved their interactions together. It was so great to see friends bloom and blossom over the years and watch them continue to be friends through all of lives changes and their differences.

Ten Years Later made me laugh out loud and smile throughout. It was such a light and fun book. I had no problem getting through this book besides normal life and other book responsibilities getting in my way. I wish I had been able to devote more time to really reading it more one-on-one. I hate reading multiple books at a time, but the last few months it has been like that. I guess there’s been a TON of new releases lately! Anywho… this is a book that belongs on your shelf… totally signed, of course!! While this isn’t a big deal, but I like to mention everything, the cover just doesn’t seem to reflect the book, to me anyway. The cover doesn’t affect my star rating though since it really doesn’t affect the content of the book.

I received an ecopy in exchange for an honest review.
