In her memoir series Diary of a Middle-Aged Sex Goddess, Elizabeth J. Winters Waite explores the complexities of life for a single mother in her sexual prime. Bridging the gap between Sex and the City and The Golden Girls, her stories detail raising three boys, running a successful all-female accounting firm, and pursuing passions that grow her soul, all while trying to get laid—or trying not to get laid, whichever the case may be—while on the never-ending quest for true love.
In Half Hearted Hopeful, the second volume in the series, Waite turns fifty, reflecting in her witty, honest, and deeply personal way on who she wants to be—and who she wants to be with. Rekindling a flame with Fabulous Guy, she experiments with becoming a friend with benefits … only to end up falling madly in love. He touches something deep inside of her, leaving her breathless from the experience, but can she ever be truly satisfied if he won’t share his heart?
