This story is of Simone, a mother of two almost grown-up daughters, wife of an orthodontist. She and her husband have been grwoning apart, basically since the birth of their first daughter and immigration to Australia. Simonen and her husband, at the time of the book, were both engaged in sexual affairs. This book details much of the detsil in the sexual encounters, as well as the events that happen around them, which result in a climatic outcome.

Whilst the story had its moments where I had to read some more to find out what was happening, the writing style was a bit too clever or clunky (cant work out which) for me. In the first couple of chapters I was shocked and tantalised by the detailed description of the sexual encounters (and they were very descriptive), but after awhile it was too much detail in that it became boring. I dont think that I came away liking any of the characters very much.

I lovced tyhe fact that the author of this erotic story, is a 73 year old lady from Queensland ... this gives me inspiration that you are never too old.

The only thing that bothers me slightly, is that the writing is too clever/sophisticated, but I am getting used to it. Interested to see how the story pans out."
