Format: Paperback
If you are totally happy in a relationship and think infidelity is deplorable under any circumstances, please do not buy or read this book because you are likely to dislike the main character, Sadie, intensely. If however, you have ever had an affair, been tempted to have an affair, or are just a bored and frustrated housewife who, despite having adorable kids, wishes there was a spark of wild sexuality in her life, then you will absolutely love this book. It is beautifully and sympathetically written and readers with young children won't fail to compare themselves to Sadie in one way or another. Reading of her day to day activities brought back so many memories of when my own children were the age of those in the book, and I remember feeling just as frumpy and frustrated with life as Sadie. Fortunately, not many of us meet a handsome man at a dinner party who seduces us into an affair, but I can still understand how Sadie would have got carried along with the moment. Those readers who found Sadie spoilt, selfish and self absorbed should note that she paid the consequences for her actions, and may she be a warning for anyone who finds themselves similarly tempted. A thoroughly enjoyable book with equal measures of humour and anguish, I couldn't wait to pick it up and find out what happened next.

I love all the other Lucy Diamond books I've read, but I couldn't get past the first few chapters of this one. The heroine doesn't seem to have any redeeming qualities. Being a mum myself I recognise that motherhood isn't a bed of roses, but her attitude doesn't make enjoyable reading. Perhaps the book picks up later on, but I don't want to spend my precious time trying to find out. Sorry.

This book is essentially about a spoilt,selfish,simple, immature girl who is bored with her partner and 2 little children,not mature enough to have children but still wishes she was a single party girl.

Whilst parts of it were enjoyable I found it quite basic. The idea is a good one but I think it could have been explored in much more depth.The ending was also disappointing,too quick and with happy ever after an unrealistic, easy get out for the main character despite all she had done.

I'm afraid to say that I didn't enjoy this book at all. I have read two other books by this Author
and thoroughly enjoyed them.
I lost sympathy for Sadie when she continued her affair while still breast feeding her baby. Wouldn't recommend this book but would recommend you try other books by Lucy Diamond.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is the second Lucy Diamond book I have read and absolutely loved it. The characters are all easy to identify with and the detail in the writing makes it feel very real. The story looks at the issues of infidelity and people's attitudes and behaviours around this topic - not just for Sadie but for other characters in the story too. Putting the main character as the adulterer allows exploration of the issue in detail and enables the reader to see that Sadie is not a bad person - she is only human and has lost her way and identity after becoming a full time mother. This is reflected in her scatter-gun approach to inventing a new more exciting life which starts off as a bit of fun and gets out of control. Despite the serious topic this is a fun read but also had me in floods of tears in places as I empathised not only with Sadie but some of the other characters as well. A good realistic story with laughs and tears along the way - just like life!

I am from the United States and happened upon my first Lucy Diamond
book in Girbraltar. I am so happy to have found this amazing, funny and brilliant author. This book felt so real. I felt just like I was the character,(Minus the affair). Lucy hit every womens thoughts and feelings perfectly. This book made me laugh out loud. I think I was holding my breath a few times. Anyone, especially moms will feel this character. I really enjoyed it. I can't wait until Lucy's next book!

Wasn't sure I was going to like it when I first started reading it but totally loved it! A real page turner that I found hard to put down. This is the first book that I've read by Lucy Diamond but will defiantly read her others.

Format: Paperback
At the start of this book, I was expecting pretty standard 'chick lit', but by the end it had became much more, and I was finding it hard to put it down.

Most mums with young children will be able to identify with parts of Sadie's character, and will find themselves nodding, laughing, and possibly even crying. Although I didn't particularly agree with some of her actions, I could at least understand where she was coming from, and what pushed her.

I also enjoyed her relationships with her sisters and friends, which brought us more characters to identify with.

With some unexpected twists, and a believable ending, Lucy Diamond is a fun, sexy author, and I'm looking forward to her next offering.
