It's been a long time since we heard from this fabulous author, and she's gone contemporary on us! But, wow! Just Sex begins during an explosive scene with Ellen and her husband Tom in counseling, where he airily declares the sex she caught him doing with someone else `had nothing to do with you... It was just sex.' I still can't believe Tom actually lived past the first page! With a nudge from the counselor, Tom (!), and her effervescent and fiercely loyal friend Jill, Ellen's prodded to have `just sex' too, and discover the freedom for herself. But who with? And when? Where? How? She's got two teenage kids at home and she's been out of the game for her twenty year marriage. Plus, she's over 40. The idea of getting naked with someone new is terrifying! Then she meets Joe, an old school mate, now a cop; and Bobby, a fellow plane passenger when she goes on an all-expenses paid holiday to Sizzle, a resort island. Then there's Jake, the younger, enigmatic bartender, who helps Ellen sort out possible sex partners from the Sizzle crowd, and they `pick' Mark. Then Tom wants back in her bed. Who to choose? Discover for yourself how triumphant it is to be a woman, with the ability to choose and to love, and to do it well.
