He husband was a jerk because he had an affair with someone else but yet she was having affairs left and right the whole time. And she really hates him because he fell in love and seems to have found happiness (I'm not sure she didn't develop it further)?
She has a one affair with a women but she seems eager to split with her as soon as she finds a good man. Only happy with the pleasure she receives from the women.
And her big new love of her life is just man with a big penis. I don't get anything information about that character except that he has a huge penis (I'm thinking this book was more a revenge Erica's ex-husband).
I guess that I miss the whole point of the book. I guess it is a book about a "women" expressing her sexual life with freedom but then it just comes out as too selfish to me.
