The four first met at the yoga class taught by one of them Angie, but it was Monica who suggested they stop afterward for coffee and chat. Angie, Cait and Eve agree. Rather quickly the quartet share their inner secrets and concerns.
Cait is bored being a trophy wife to a wealthy spouse; tired of the being left on a mantle so she has found an online lover. Monica enjoys being single and the freedom that encompasses; though her doctor tells her to slow down a bit, she plays the field until she meets Dan. Eve loves sexual trysts that she engineers into role playing of her favorite movies; her afternoon partner happens to be her married boss, but she does not care as the fantasy is everything. Angie loves her husband and their twin babies, but frets that her spouse no longer seems to desire her perhaps because his ex is back in the picture.
THE SECRET LIVES OF HOUSEWIVES is a fascinating look at relationships through the eyes of the quartet. Each of the lead females has different personalities and coping mechanisms when they feel something is wrong. Though proponents of the sanctuary of marriage will have cardiac arrest as cheating and bed-hopping are the norm in this tale, other contemporary fans will enjoy the sexual escapades of four females on the prowl.
This is like a desperate housewives with a lot more sexy stuff in it. The story is a little slow at the beginning, but then it begins to develop quickly with an ending you didn't see coming. Fun!
Funny, interesting characters.
