it was ok

Listened to audiobook version, which was read by the author and three actresses, each taking on one of the four main characters. Note to self: if/when my novel sells, do not narrate my own audiobook. Authors are not necessarily voice actors. But I digress... Story was okay. I still like Gloria the best. One thing really bothered me about Robin's story. (Spoiler alert) She ends up crossing paths sixteen years later with Michael. In the first book, he's chubby and not very good in bed. In this book, he's slimmed down and, supposedly, has improved in other areas as well (wink wink nudge nudge). But the character of Robin has always been so bold and forthcoming with details, that the lack of narrative in this particular regard did not seem consistent. And it's not that I wanted a nasty page or two...okay, maybe I did.
