I got this book on sale and probably would have never looked twice at it but after I started listen to I have to admit I truly enjoyed it.

This book is about an insure woman who want to learn to feel sexy in her own skin. She’s introduced to a popular male escort who teaches her to let lose. There is a lot more to this story that I can’t tell without giving everything away. I think this book was great and I would listen to it again.
The outline of this story was so eerily close to one part of my life that's it's taken me more than a couple of months to be able to write this review..Show More ». Suddenly finding out one day that you have a fifteen year old daughter is one of those surreal experiences that for months afterwards there is the sense that it wasn't real; it was something that you thought about or wrote about, or was part of a dream. It can't be anything that actually happened; can it? The uncertainty in this narrative was certainly familiar to both of us as was the ambivalence and fear that we both felt. Discomfort becomes a very familiar sensation; particularly for the daughter as she meets grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins for the first time. Perhaps I'm far too close to the story to appreciate it but I found the book to be seriously lacking in depth and detail. There were far too many holes in the narrative and I found the conclusion less than satisfying. In short I chose this selection because it was so close to my own experience and found out that was all it was for me. This book didn't add a thing for me; whether the fault was the author's or mine; i can't say.
