Lust and Marriage
on September 16, 2012
This novel has the most spectacular wedding scene I've ever read, which artfully hints at Brett's mania for excess and the heart of darkness ahead for Nicky and Brett's lusty, whirlwind romance. It's easy to root for Nicky who is down-to-earth, adventurous and open-minded, despite a repressive upbringing. I got swept along as she gets exactly what so many women want: a sexy, fun-loving hunk who also embraces marriage and family life. When Brett's penchant for porno becomes an all-consuming obsession, the author does a terrific job of realistically portraying Nicky's confusion, soul-searching, attempts at understanding and eventual fight for her love life. It's clear how difficult this is when faced with an addictive behavior that is not well understood. It's also great to see the author boldly take on a subject that many women face, but are still ashamed to admit even among themselves. An imaginative, highly recommended read.
