This novel is about four women who have been friends for a very long time, know each other well, and are comfortable together. Their age varies some and each are very different but well-developed characters. They meet monthly as a group for drinks and dinner and somehow the topic of sex came up I know, what a surprise, given the title.
Annabelle has been a widow for two years and is in her fifties. Jackie recently discovered her husband had a three-year affair with another woman, has forgiven him and is trying to put their marriage back together. Karen has been concentrating on her career and men really have been in the picture. Terri is the most active sexually as she belongs to a sex club.
I can just hear my friends shrieking "Gloriamarie, why did you read this?" And all I can say is please re-read the first paragraph. Brooke's writing is superb and she draws me into reading what I otherwise wouldn't because is just that good at it. Her characters are vividly drawn, her plots well-developed, there are all these details that make the whole thing come alive and is real for me.
I am not going to spoil the story for you with a lot of details. Yeah, some bits were uncomfortable for me to read, but the caring and mutual respect of the participants for each other mitigated much of my discomfort.
I just wish Brooke would include a clickable table of contents.
I liked Terri, but I normally don't read F/F, so it was difficult for me to read those parts. And Karen was equally enjoyable, and towards the middle of the book I was quite surprised. (Not going to spoil what the surprise was:) ) I still enjoyed this book thoroughly. It was full of humor, sadness, and a deep friendship that I love to see.
