First of all,this is an adult book.
Else than the fact that I should not have read this book, it was a very fun book. It's a chick-lit novel which makes you laugh and the elements in the book are very, I say, "kinky". So if you are mature enough to read this book, dig in.
But? If you just want something non-taxing to relax with on a rainy day The Wives of Bath might be what you are looking for.
Not the greatest book I’ve read. But there were babies involved ;) and humor and love and really bad spouses…. It gave me some nice hours of reading and the ending made everyone happy –> and I love a happy ending :D Perfect for reading when travelling or before sleeping or out in the sun.
Mine was a paperback, though, but the same cover...
I think I found it good enough to go along, because it has babies. Two, in fact! :D
But I enjoyed it, a light bedtime read and the happy ending satisfied the romantic in me.
