Not the best chick lit I've read, in my opinion. The author put in a lot of poetry throughout the book and it bugged me a bit. The story just didn't grab me the way I anticipated. The main character, Sidney, is not enjoying her marriage and strays with a married man. Their affair is long yet stunted at the same time. It's very strange and difficult to explain. The premise held a lot of promise, but it just didn't deliver what I was expecting. It just wasn't as good as I was hoping it to be.

Oh my goodness....I read this right about the time I went through something (not quite) similar. I really connected to this character and felt the need to get the book to read it again...which I haven't been brave enough to do yet.
Great read!

Perhaps if the editor had taken her red pen and gotten rid of about half of the contents of this story it would have gone from 'good' to 'great'. As it was, this book became more tedious as it went on. Most chapters included lengthy poems, which in my opinion were nothing more than the author screaming "hey, look at me, I can write poetry too!!!" as they did nothing to move the plot along. There were also pages of asides where the main character spoke directly to the reader, while I enjoyed them at first, I eventually found them to be somewhat unnecessary.
That being said- I did enjoy the character of Sidney. She was funny and I liked her a lot more as the story went on. I also thought the ending, while unusual for this type of genre, was perfect for this story and character.
I would recommend this book- with the advice of just skipping over the poetry.

Fun, light novel about a plus size single woman. Read it at the beach last summer.

Short and simple - did not like this one. Way too much language, sex and the like. I was just darn annoyed that a married woman honestly started an affair with another guy.

If you are a fan of the vulgar, this one is for you.
