Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ellen just got handed the dream of half of the wives in America-her husband told her to have an affair.

With her CEO husband, her kids, and her house keeping her busy, passion was never Ellen's first priority. But somehow her husband managed to make time in his schedule for it-with other women. Now he wants Ellen to believe that his reckless liaisons were nothing more than "just sex." In fact, he's so desperate to prove his point that he's challenged her to find out for herself.

After so many years, Ellen is hauling out her rusty flirting skills and following her free-spirited best friend into a world she thought she'd left behind at the altar. She might not have any more faith in this marriage, but she's about to find some in herself-and what starts out as "just sex" might end up being a second chance to find something better.

Review:

"As Law's latest opens, Ellen Markham, a Minnesota housewife who considers Diet Coke her only vice, is having her hands pulled off her philandering husband Tom's neck by an extremely expensive marriage counselor. After the disastrous session, Tom throws down the gauntlet and tells Ellen that she should have an affair to even the score and realize that sometimes a relationship can be just sex. Hyperbolic comedy drives this not-quite romance from veteran Law (One Lonely Night, etc.), as Ellen, with help from best friend Jill, warily embarks on the challenge to meet Mr. Right Now. The madcap plot awkwardly juxtaposes with the complex feelings Ellen faces as her marriage erodes (the couple have two children), and everyone around her, including Ellen's 15-year-old daughter and Jill, harbors debilitating secrets. There's a surprisingly bitter aftertaste to the novel's often sugary sweet setups." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
