Take My Husband, Please by Kimberly Jayne is a delicious romantic comedy surrounding the antics of a nearly divorced couple. Sophie and Will had been married for twenty-two years. When Will told her that he didn't love her any more, Sophie decided to get on with her life. She gets a job as a real estate rookie and begins dating Mitch, the hot real estate broker who is sponsoring her. Ironically, Will keeps getting in the way. He lost his job and, with his condo in escrow, he has no other place to live. Will living in the same house with Sophie is causing Mitch to have second thoughts about entering into a relationship with Sophie.
To assuage Mitch's misgivings that Will has feelings for her, Sophie makes a deal with Will. He has to go out on five blind dates of her choosing and he will receive something precious that he lost in a bet several years previously. He grudgingly goes through with the dates, only to find that women are crazy and Sophie looks good. Then the subtle sabotage begins. Sophie is at a loss as to how to deal with Will. Despite all her efforts to get Will out of her life and prove that they are over, she and Mitch keep stumbling over him at the most inopportune times. Will she never rid herself of Will?
Take My Husband, Please by Kimberly Jayne was a wonderful romance and a complete delight to read. The circumstances that Sophie gets herself into were hilarious. She had me in stitches throughout the whole book. I nearly fell out of my chair when she lost her bikini bottoms while wave boarding. I could sense the love/hate emotions between Sophie and Will as they struggled to maintain their choice of separation. The characters and their foibles were so real and normal that they were easily related to and quite entertaining. I really enjoyed this book and I recommend it to anyone who likes a good combination of comedy and romance.
