Pelvic Flaws, one woman's struggle with wet knickers and sweaty boobs.

When one sneeze can ruin your day.

I’m Katie Grainger, I’m 45 years old, a divorced mother of three, slightly annoying at times, but always loveable, kids and I can wet myself at the drop of hat. Actually, it’s more like a sneeze or a cough than a drop of a hat, but whatever the reason, let’s just say I a

Nov 10, 2018 rated it really liked it
The problem with Nikki Ashton books is they’re insanely addictive. Once you start reading, you cannot put the book down. You find you need to finish in a single sitting, curious to see how everything comes together, desperate for more. Which is great, except for the fact I seem to make a habit of starting Nikki Ashton books in the early hours of the morning. This means I regularly go without sleep – and my neighbours too, most likely, as I chuckle so hard I’m sure they hear me.

British humour, I love it and I entered into Pelvic Flaws with it in abundance. I found my Soul Sista in Katie, she's the type of woman who I could identify with and you know when some things happen and you can either laugh or cry about it? Well, I would rather laugh, I adored Katie.

One of the best romcoms I’ve ever read! EVER! What a delightfully funny and heartwarming story. I connected with this book AND Katie in so many ways. I couldn't stop laughing. If you love romcoms, I swear you will not be disappointed if you chose to read Pelvic Flaws. I can truly tell you that you are missing out if you don't check out this book. The author is incredibly talented with writing comedy, the pace was fast and when I turned the last page, I realized I wasn't ready to say good
Pelvic Flaws was absolutely hilarious. I fell in love with Katie and Dex instantly.

This was my first Nikki Ashton book I've read and I know without a doubt I'll go and read her backlist.

Pelvic Flaws had everything I want in a romantic comedy. If you're looking for a fun, sexy and flirty read this book is for you.

If you're going to purchase Pelvic Flaws by Nikki Ashton and you're a lady over the age of 40, I suggest to purchase a maxi pack of Tena lady first off - you're going to need them. Also don't read this in the waiting room of your psychiatrist's office. You persistent guffawing to yourself might give them cause to section you.

That said, please don't let that put you off buying it. It's freaking hilarious. It's easily the funniest book I've read this year. I work for a well-known pizza company an

This is not my first Nikki Ashton read, at this point I have become addicted to her writing and characters. I was delighted to receive an ARC of Pevic Flaws. Whilst reading this I discovered my "Pelvic Flaws." Nikki Ashton has once again hit the jackpot with this little beauty. I laughed so hard at places that my pelvic floor was in need of attention and I developed a "snort" I kid you not!! As usual with one of Nikki's books it's so additive that you can't put it down.

Omg how has it taken me this long to read a Nikki Ashton book?? Pelvic Flaws had me giggling all the way through. It was hilarious!

Katie is a middle aged woman going through menopause. As a woman who has had three children and her fair share of embarrassing moments, I found Katie to be easy to relate to. She’s so real, if that makes sense. She’s not a perfectly made up woman, and I think that’s why I like her so much. She could be me.

I was hooked from the beginning, the start was amusing, book club sounded just like me and my girly friends talking 😃

Katie is a divorcee with 3 kids, she's your run of the mill woman, doesn't see her own strengths, has typical age 45+ issues, along with a very honest voice.

Okay I'm considering doctoring some of my bags if it brings a Dex into my life...... bugger I'm married so that won't be a good idea lol

Another cracking read from this author!

"His accent was broad and sexy and made me want to put on a pair of Daisy Dukes and ride across a ranch, on a horse called Champion."

Katie Grainger is middle-aged, menopausal, and has three kids. She hasn't really been with anyone in years -since her divorce. When she meets sexy, tattooed, silver-fox Dex Michaels in the local pizza place, she does so in spectacular embarrassing style!

Pelvic Flaws was OUTRAGEOUSLY funny. There were numerous times when I found myself laughing out loud.

What drew me into the book was the fact that it was about fortysomethings. Sometimes you just want to read a book about more mature characters. Which is funny considering how much I laughed while reading. Of course the kids in this provided much of the entertainment.

I only wish there was more spacing between paragraphs when the story cut to another scene. It went from a couple kissing in the dri

In Pelvic Flaws, Dex and Katie meet after a chance encounter one day. They continue to run into each other in odd circumstances, and one day decide to give it a go with each other. Katie is a divorced mom of three, and Dex is a tattoo artist who owns his own shop. So much fun happens watching this couple become just that.

I love, love, loved this book and these characters! It is set in the UK, so picking up some of the lingo was a little difficult, but I cannot recommend this enough! There were

This is the first book that I've read by Nikki Ashton and I have to say it's brilliant in my opinion.
I sniggered and laughed my way through it, recognising myself in so many of the "moments" that Katie had, and I'm not just talking about the menopausal symptoms!
Katie and Dex are wonderful characters, warts and all!
It's not often that you see books where the main characters are 40+ and "normal". Kudos to Nikki Ashton for taking the chance and writing this story, it's definitely one that I will re

Pelvic Flaws is a terrific mix of sweet, sexy, and laugh out loud hilarious. This story has everything I love in a romance, including a positively swoon-worthy silver fox. Dex is maybe a little too perfect, but he's just right for this romance and he's the best book boyfriend I've come across. Every woman needs a Dex in their life. Katie is a hot mess with a great sense of humor, which comes in pretty handy when you're raising three kids and dealing with menopause. The romance isn't perfect, and ...more

OMG I laughed so hard I peed a little:D

Katie and Dex, from the very beginning, are perfect for each other. Katie is hilarious (though she is not trying) and Dex loves it. Dex is a sexy tatooed, tattoo artist who grabs Katie's attention from the get-go. Though it takes more than one run in for the two to get together. When they do Katie can't believe it, she has very low self-esteem and doesn't believe a guy like Dex will last. But Dex constantly

Oh my gah! This book had me laughing so hard at some points I was crying!
Katie and all her clumsiness was hilarious!
When Katie and Dex meet it was like insta lust!
A series of events happen and it leads to Katie and Dex going out on their first date.

Katie feels like she comes with too much baggage and over thinks things at every turn.

Dex thinks that she is perfect for him.
Pelvic Flaws and all.

Oh my days! I absolutely loved this book! Katie Grainger is my spirit animal. Her relationship with the people in her life resonated so much with me.

Katie is a 45 year old woman dealing with divorce, the menopause and a non-existent love life. She bumps into Dex at a local pizza house; he’s hot, attractive and attentive. She’s everything he didn’t realise he was looking for.

Another chance encounter leads to a healthy dose of instalust and thus, a relationship begins. The pace of the relationshi

This story was an absolute pleasure to read. It was lovely to have a book about a more mature relationship and read the calamity that is Katie. I laughed and just plain grinned a lot while reading this story.

Katie is so relatable with her hot sweats and self-doubts. I loved her parenting skills and the hilarious thoughts that run rampant in her head. Katie's Mum is a real character too and made me cringe with her flirty, no filter personality. Dex is just wonderful; I imagine I would sw

Dex Michaels is a Texan living and working in the UK. Katie is a single mother of three who, after separating from her husband of 18 years has had a four year 'dry spell'!

Let's just say that when Dex and Katie meet, his 'Southern Gentleman' charm comes out in force.

His treatment and protection of Katie is wonderful to read and those of you with daughters will wish for a Dex as a son-in-law, that's for sure.

What a wonderful and entertaining story this is throughout. Dex and Katie are great characters, and the attraction between them is intense. This is a beautifully written story, which is realistic, hilarious, and with too many laugh-out-loud moments to count. I was totally captivated throughout this addictive page turner, and I cannot wait to read more from this talented author, and I highly recommend for all readers who love second chance love stories.

OMG! This book right here had me LOL, snorting and waking my other half up whilst reading in bed.
Pelvic Flaws brings serious issues like divorce, menopause and starting life over again with the worries of a middle-aged romance, but the author has an hilarious way of getting this on page. I can't wait to dive into more of her work.
The characters are so loveable with zero filter, just the way I like them.

A fabulous story with so many feels.
Nikki Ashton has written a truly wonderful story of second chance love but with an incredibly humorous twist.

Dex and Katie are characters you can’t help but love. Their individual stories combine to create a rollicking fun read with depth and emotion and the fact that Katie is a forty something woman, battling the symptoms of menopause only endears her more to me.

This is a book that will make you want to sit all day and not stop reading.
It's about a newly divorced woman, who like every other woman of 'a certain age' is going through the menopause.
The story tells of how she's swept off her feet, having feelings she hasn't felt for a while whilst, whilst trying to cope with her menopausal symptoms.
Nikki has a way of turning everyday life into a comedy.

I'm seriously disappointed in myself for not having read this book so much sooner.  It quite literally ticked all of my boxes when it comes to what I expect and search for in a five star read.  This book is utterly hilarious, not just the dialogue and comedic timing, but the situations that these characters find themselves in.  And although there are plenty of laughs and grins to be had, it also manages to pack quite an emotional pun

“You want to see me to the door, Katie?”

“What, going so soon. You don’t want the chair and ropes brought in, or the lamp to shine in his face?”

“You know you’re not funny at all,” she huffed. “Now, are you going to see me out?”

“No, not really. You know where it is.”

She stared at me, her eyes wide.

“Oh,” I exclaimed. “You want to ask me about Dex instead of questioning him. You should have said so and then I could have told you it’s none of your business, he’s only here to help with my car.”
“What can I do for you?”

I had no idea why he’d want to speak to me, but my heart was thudding and the butterflies in my stomach were going crazy.

“Well,” he began. “I was wondering if you’d come to dinner with me.”

“Me,” I gasped.

Dex chuckled. “Yeah you, Katie.”

“Are you sure you mean me?”

He full on laughed. “Yeah, darlin’, I do mean you.”

“I…I don’t…I’d love to.”
