Publisher's Summary

Allie Crawford has the life she always dreamed of: she's number two at a high-profile P.R. firm; she has two kids she adores; and her husband is a blend of handsome and heroic. Wade is everything she thought a man was supposed to be - he's running a successful news-magazine and, best of all, he provides the stable yet exciting New York City life. Allie believes she needs him in order to feel secure and happy. But when Allie finds Wade locked in their laundry room with a stunning blonde in snakeskin sandals, a scandal ensues that flips her life on its head. And when the woman wants to befriend Allie, an old flame calls, and a new guy gets a little too close for comfort, she starts to think her marriage is more of a facade than something real. Maybe she's fallen in love not with Wade - but with the idea of him. Captivating and seductive, told in the whip-smart voice of a woman who is working hard to keep her parenting and career on track, The Idea of Him is a novel of conspiracy, intrigue, and intense passion - and discovering your greatest strength through your deepest fears.

What the Critics Say

"The perfect novel if you want to plunge into great dialogue, a twisting and unexpected plot, shady Wall Street schemes, betrayal, girl friends...and sex. It is unputdownable." (Lesley Stahl, CBS News 60 Minutes Anchor)

    What did you like best about The Idea of Him? What did you like least?

    I liked the IDEA of the story line but the author did a terrible job at executing it. I really hoped this book was going to get better but it never it. HUGE fail!


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    All the different things that were going on led you to believe in suspense but then there was no suspense. It was a let down.


    What aspect of Coleen Marlo’s performance would you have changed?

    She could have changed the characters voices more. They sounded too much alike.


    Could you see The Idea of Him being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No, the story line was too predictable. It would never make it as a movie.
