Title: Two Scoops, Not Three
Author: Terri Boas
Genre: Women’s Fiction
My Rating: 4 out of 5
Briony, Natalie, and Lauren have been best friends since school. Now in their thirties, their lives couldn’t be more different.
Eternally single Briony is desperate to find ‘the one’, while Lauren, a singer onboard cruise ships, is having far too much carefree fun to even think about settling down with ‘Mrs Right’. Or is she?
Meanwhile, long-term married mum Natalie has had her head turned at the gym by sexy spin instructor, Jason. And when he suggests some private, one-on-one sessions, sex-starved Natalie is powerless to resist.
When Natalie’s affair comes to light after a boozy night down their local, where they go to get their alcohol and ice cream fixes, Briony doesn’t think she’ll ever be able to forgive her friend. Luckily, a date with Mani, the hot, chivalrous son of her larger-than-life American boss helps to take her mind off things. Could he be the special someone she has been waiting for all her life?
As the girls embark on some of the most challenging moments of their lives, only one thing is for sure – their friendship will never be the same again . . .
My Review of Two Scoops, not Three
Two Scoops, not Three follows Natalie, Briony, and Lauren, who have been best friends since school, and still continue to be best friends now they are adults. The story follows the lives of the three friends – Briony who is trying to find her Mr. Right, Lauren, who works as a cruise singer, and looking for her Ms. Right. Natalie is a mum to her 2 children and married to her high-school sweetheart. Natalie is also having a steamy affair with her PT, Jason, at the gym she goes to. Natalie discovers she is pregnant and knows that Jason is the father of her baby.
When Briony and Lauren find out about the affair and Natalie being pregnant, they are furious with Natalie for risking everything she already has in life. Could this mean the end of a life-long friendship for Natalie, Briony, and Lauren? I really liked all three of the characters but found Natalie to be quite selfish and self-centered initially, however by the end of the story, I had warmed to her a little more. Without giving anything away, I really enjoyed the ending of the story – it just goes to prove that you never know where or when you will fall in love, and with who.
Two Scoops, Not Three is a lovely story about love and friendship, and a really nice light-hearted, and entertaining read.
