Take three friends, add two ex-lovers and several new ones, then mix with more secrets than any of them know - and the result is a recipe for explosive rivalries and incendiary romance.
Attorney Liz Ramsey thought she had everything - a devoted partner, a challenging job, and plans for a family in the making. Unfortunately her life takes a turn, and she ends up alone and in the kind of trouble she never dreamed of. Then she bumps into - literally - young surgeon Reilly Danvers, and life gets even more complicated.
Liz's two best friends offer all the support she needs, but they have secrets of their own. Candace Lory, a high-powered commodities trader and swinging playgirl, meets her match when she hooks up with corporate attorney Parker Jones. Brenda Beal, the only member of the group who hasn't slept with every available woman, prefers to fantasize about a perfect lover, especially if she's obedient and willing to do anything Bren orders. A surprise birthday outing and a dashing, dark-eyed submissive transform Bren's fantasies into reality and her dark secrets into delicious pleasures.

Delight in the journey and the struggle on the road to your dreams
As a romantic kind of girl my influence in this library is obvious, I'm a real softie. However for the most part Radclyffe books have been too mushy even for me. This selection has more of an edge than any of the other six or eight books of hers I've listened to previously.
The Lonely Hearts club consists of three lesbian women who've been friends since their college days and are seemingly unable to find or maintain relationships. The chief protagonist Attorney Liz Ramsey is still in the process of getting over being dumped for a 23 year old grad student by her longtime girlfriend Julia. Julia is a nice example of a realistic heavy; she's not mean or evil she's just self-centered, self indulgent, insensitive, and blind to the feelings of others.
Brenda (Bren) is, unbeknownst to her friends, a writer of erotic fiction; she is unaware, even to herself what it is she's searching for.
Candace is the hot chick of the group as well as a Wall Street trader and the kind of player that you normally associate with a male professional athlete. She meets and spends a night with an attorney in Liz's firm; Parker Jones is another version of Candace, she's a player to whom the phrase 'long term relationship' equates to a holiday weekend. The two of them have a night that threatens to, gasp, become something more than a night of good sex.
Finally Dr. Reilly Danvers, an orthopedic surgeon who has avoided relationships since the death of her first serious lover. She and Liz begin a push/pull relationship that seems to be de riguer for all romance novels; that includes misunderstandings, miscommunication, assumptions, and a lack of communication. Though both of the two main protagonists have a too good to be true vibe they aren't the paragons depicted depicted in many of the authors works. In closing if you're a Radclyffe fan you'll love this book; if not, give it a shot anyway.
This was a really great book. I definitely recommend , I hope there's other books with these characters because I would love to know more about how their lives ended up 😁😁
Loved this story. There was some irritation with the parts including Julia; was almost not enough to be worthy of including...but glad there wasn't more of her character truthfully. I so wish there was an epilogue or continuation to the 3 main story lines.
this book was so ... AWESOME SAUCE!!!! Its the onlybaay i can explain it and the reader did an aaaawwwwwmmmmaaaazzziiinnnneeee job at live this book to life... i felt likd i was right there in the baseball field, in the cubicle when Riley told Julia in no uncertain term to back the hell off. OMG love love love this job
I have MS and LD and make spelling and grammar mistakes, please forgive the handicap.
The story is about three woman who all belong to a closed group of three ex-roommate. They call themselves the "The Lonely Hearts Clubs" mostly because of there bad luck with woman. One is a successful lawyer who just broke up with awful ex-Julie and who is also pregnant. The second is insanely jealous of anyone who show the lawyer the time of day like the young cute Dr. Danvers who has taken a big interest, only she does know about the pregnancy, and has no wish for children of her own. Then there is Brenda who has been leading a double life, one as a confirmed loner by day, and in secret a famous romance novelists of famous series starring Jade. That the others know nothing of beside being fans themselves. Only a real life Jade sneaks into her life.
