Bunco Babes Gone Wild
By Maria Geraci
Release Date: October 27, 2009
What happens when you combine twelve women, a handful of dice, some gossip, and lots of frozen drinks? A rip-roaring good time!
Georgia Meyer arrives in Whispering Bay, Florida, to visit her sister, Frida, and in desperate need of some time to think. She is currently the CFO of a major electronics company in Birmingham, Alabama, and is dating the company boss, Spencer Moody. For their five year anniversary dinner, Georgia is expecting a proposal and a ring. Understandable after five years together. Instead, she receives a calculator. An expensive calculator, but still. So Georgia drives down intending to stay only a couple of days reflecting on what to do and ends up getting roped into playing Bunco with Frida and her friends, the Bunco Babes. After several (or more) drinks, the gals start to get a bit rowdy and one of the Bunco Babes gets asked to show off her new boob job. She flashes them and then another gal flashes hers and then as Georgia describes it:
After that, all hell broke loose. Everyone was flashing. It was a blur of nipples and pale-colored flesh. There were big boobs, little boobs, somewhere-in-the-middle boobs. Sort of like an R-rated version of Dr. Seuss.
At this point, I was laughing out loud! And then, of course, who would walk in while Georgia was flashing hers but the gorgeous guy she had a slight run-in with earlier, Dave Hernandez. And by the look on his face, he likes what he sees. They’re both in Whispering Bay “temporarily”, but Georgia’s frequent interactions and growing attraction to the sexy construction worker make her really question whether Spencer is the one. Or could what she feels for Dave be the real thing?
This book was so much fun that I gobbled it up! I enjoy playing Bunco and you can tell Ms. Geraci does, too. Not only does she showcase the budding, hot romance between Dave and Georgia, but also the importance of having great girlfriends. These women know everything about each other and always stick together to help when a friend is in need. I wanted to be a Babe! Plus, there are a lot of great recipes included along with short snippets about a few real Bunco groups. If you’re looking for a great book that’s funny and quick to read, pick this one up!
I enjoyed Bunco Babes Gone Wild so much, I'd love to give a copy away to one lucky commenter today!
This books sounds like lots of fun I do love a good book that makes me laugh
I look forward to reading the book. I enjoyed her first one, have played Bunco and am blessed with a group of girlfriends just like that. Can't wait to read it and laugh.
I've heard so many good things about this book, I'd lovce to read it.ReplyDelete
Great review too !!
This one's on my TBR shelf. A friend sent it to me.Andrea, your review makes me want to read it right away.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Helen. It was a lot of fun!ReplyDelete
Cyndi, I enjoyed it so much that I ordered her first one along with the 3 Brockway books!
Thank you for the lovely review, Andrea. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book!ReplyDelete
Janga, I was actually a bit surprised by how much I loved it. Once I started reading, I couldn't pull myself away!
Please enter me, I loved her first one! I had never even heard of Bunco before and I tried to find a group in my area when I finished but no luck.ReplyDelete
Oh, Maria! Thanks for stopping by! And thanks for the wonderful read. Are you planning any more books set in Whispering Bay?*crosses fingers*ReplyDelete
Brande, I've played before with a group of ladies from my church. We'll probably pick it up again when the weather starts getting warmer. I hope you find a group! It's so much fun!ReplyDelete
Hi Andrea, For now, the Bunco Babes are done, however you never know right? My next book which comes out in December is a romantic comedy titled THE BOYFRIEND OF THE MONTH CLUB. I think fans of Bunco Babes will really like it as well!ReplyDelete
Great review, Andrea! I play Bunco with a group of women from my neighborhood. Lots of good food and good fun! I'm looking forward to reading BUNCO BABES GONE WILD!ReplyDelete
Bunco is popular around here, almost as much as Farkle! (The actual game and on FB, LOL!)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the review, Andrea. The book sounds like a fun read.
Andrea, I thought Maria's first Bunco book was hilarious, so I'm certain I'll laugh my head off with this one, too.ReplyDelete
I never heard of this book but I will now give it a try in the future.ReplyDelete

Sounds cool to me, I read about this book somewhere else, sounds like a rollicking, fun ride.ReplyDelete
Another great review!
Oooo, I like that title, Maria. I'm in! :-DReplyDelete
Thanks, PJ. I agree -- good food + good company = good fun! I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks, Deb. I've heard of Farkle, but never played. It must be fun!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by, kalynnick!
Gannon, I was intrigued by the first book when you reviewed it for RNTV. Hope you like this one!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Drew! I was having a crappy day before I started reading this book and my mood instantly changed for the better. Can't beat that! :)
FYI, Andrea---Farkle is like Yahtzee. My husband plays it a lot online and our son got him the actual game for Christmas. Our daughter Shary even likes it.ReplyDelete
Oh, I love Yahtzee! I must look up Farkle because we're always looking for new games to play on Family Game Night. Thanks, Deb!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the review, Andrea. I'm really in need of a good romance with some laughs in it. They are really hard to find. The name of the book sounds familiar but not Maria Geraci - I'm excited to try her out. Maybe I'll get another author to add to my auto-buy list. Can never have too many of those!ReplyDelete
I played Bunco with a group of cousins and friends years ago but we couldn't all mesh our schedules and the group faded. It was fun while it lasted, though.
BTW, Gannon, just picked up The School of Essential Ingredients. I'm only a chapter in and I can see what you mean about the writing - it is so lyrical and descriptive. Very mesmerizing.
Andrea, this looks like a fabulous feel-good read. I really need one of those right now!!! You should have seen the hubby's face when he saw the title LOL!ReplyDelete
irisheyes said: I'm really in need of a good romance with some laughs in it. They are really hard to find.ReplyDelete
I totally agree, irisheyes! I only started reading contemporaries a few years ago and don't know why it took me so long. They are wonderful! And I love ones with humor. That's why I'm so grateful for those who started the "save the contemporary" campaign!
Buffie, this is absolutely a feel-good book. I think you'd love it. And LOL @ your hubby!! Mine had the same reaction. Especially when I read him the "R-rated Dr. Seuss" part! LOL!ReplyDelete
I love these books!ReplyDelete
This sounds like a great book. I just love a nice feel good book. Thanks for the giveaway.ReplyDelete
