Publisher's Summary

Adèle appears to have the perfect life. A respected journalist, she lives in a flawless Parisian apartment with her surgeon husband and their young son. But beneath the veneer of 'having it all', she is bored - and consumed by an insatiable need for sex, whatever the cost. Struggling to contain the twin forces of compulsion and desire, she begins to orchestrate her life around her one-night stands and extramarital affairs, arriving late to work and lying to her husband about where she's been, until she becomes ensnared in a trap of her own making.

An erotic and daring story - with electrically clear writing - Adèle will captivate listeners with its exploration of addiction, sexuality, and one woman's quest to feel alive.

Flat and underwhelming

The story is very flat- I am half way in and absolutely nothing has happened. A long description of a very disappointing character. Narrator sounds negative and bland. I will not finish this and have no motivation to.

Not my idea of a good book.

I didn't like, relate to or engage with any of the characters in this book.
The subject matter is tough stuff but well written, for what it is.
Maybe I missed something....but I felt this to be a pointless story.

Finty Williams (one of my favourite narrators) is not at her best here.
