Review: Thursday Afternoon by Beth Rinyu

***This post may contain affiliate links to help support this blog***
I have loved every single book that I have read by Beth Rinyu, she is a mother of two boys and does a fantastic job of portraying relatable and lovable single parents.  Simon in this story was no exception.  This story can be read anywhere and you don’t have to worry about provocative scenes you might be caught reading by a co-worker or child. Pick up your copy on Amazon.

“Every time it snows its a new opportunity to experience that beauty once again. Just because that snow gets trampled on and dirty doesn’t mean we’ll never see the pureness in it once more. Life is all about second chances. We’re given them all the time.”

I cannot sing praises loud enough for Beth Rinyu’s writing and story telling loud enough! She never fails to fully immerse me in a story, and this one was no exception.

This is a tale of triumph and love and getting a second chance in life and it will keep you on the edge of your seat with twists that you don’t see coming. Tears. I had tears of joy and tears of heartbreak. She hit me right in the feels with this one.

But it was also funny and didn’t have any lulls that had me bored, it was also clean… fade to black sex scenes, but dang it man. That’s just what I needed at the moment. I was in a major book funk, and this story pulled me right of it and sucked me right int to story and I never wanted to leave.

There is just so much I want to say, but I went into this book relatively blind, because well.. I like that and trust Beth to deliver on anything she writes. So, I don’t want to give too much away.

Just.. read this.. sigh, I don’t think you will regret it and I think you will find a new author to love.


I’m just your typical working girl who never mixes business with pleasure. Although some may say my business is all about pleasure. For the past four years, I’ve allowed my profession to define me, distancing myself from family, friends and most of all love. Hating the reflection I see staring back at me in the mirror, I muddle through each day with my heart sealed off like a tomb, until two strangers enter my life.

One teaching me the true meaning of friendship.
The other teaching me the true meaning of love.
She’s everything I’m not. 
Humble, loving, and devoting her life to others.
We’re an unlikely duo who are polar opposites, but at the same time so alike.
Never in a million years could I be friends with someone like her…until I was.

Then there’s him.
He’s my Thursday afternoon client.
Just like all the others: handsome, rich and charming…yet so very different.
Trying to overcome a painful past, he seeks out my services as a refuge, only to find that we’re opening our hearts to each other in ways that neither of us could’ve imagined.
I could never fall in love with someone like him…until I did. 
And now I’m finding myself longing for it to be Thursday afternoon all week long.



Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen – or in today’s world a touch of the keyboard.
My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? I’m a mom of twin teenage boys, a crazy Border Collie and a cat with an identity crisis! I guess you can say writing is my form of Calgon!
 Thanks for taking the time to learn about my books and me! If you decide to read them (and I hope you do!) please be sure to go on and review it for me – yes, even if you don’t like it!
Thank you for touring with Jo&IsaBooks
