Yes, there are dirty bits and yes, they are very good - though you will enjoy them more if your kink involves submissive women than if that's not particularly your thing. But the reason this book should be widely, widely read is its breathtaking directness and honesty about what it is to be a sexually active, autonomous woman in the early 21st century. GOTN owns her mistakes as well as her triumphs and delights; she is open-minded, endlessly interested in human sexuality, considerate of the feelings of others, thoughtful, funny and smart.
This isn't a novel - it's not fiction at all. It's a series of extended essays with an overarching narrative which takes in her past experiences, the history of the blog and the development of her relationship with 'Mark',including some pretty dark and unsettling stuff about mental health issues, bad choices, sorrow and loss. Reading it is a bit like a really good, memorable night out with your most outspoken, grog-loving mate: you'll be helpless with laughter one minute, welling up with sympathy the next, and almost certainly ending the night with a big hug and fervent good wishes for each other's future happiness.

This isn't just a book about love, or about sex, as the title suggests. This is a book about what it means to be a woman in 2016. It's as much about mental health as it is about romance. The sex scenes are explicit and it's sweary, too, but it's also moving and *real*. If you're looking for a way into conversations about sex and relationships, with your partner or even with your frienfs, this is well worth a read. It won't give you the answers but it will spark lots of discussion. I'd strongly recommend, but if you're not sure whether it'll be your thing or not, check out the author's style on her blog before you buy.

Is there such a thing as a happy ever after ending? Or is it all just arguments about who's turn it is to defrost the freezer? This is the true story of what happened when famed sex and relationships blogger Girl on the Net decided to embrace domesticity, with all its ups and downs.

Obviously her version of domesticity is still 90% sexier and funnier than anyone else's, but still. Ignore the cheesy cover, this is a throughly reccommend read for anyone who likes their romcoms with a lot of spice and a side order of kink.

I'll start by saying I bloody love this book. Having read and loved Girl on the Net's debut novel, 'My not-so-shameful sex secrets', I couldn't wait to get my hands on the follow-up. I devoured it in about 2 days.

I think it's important to say that you don't need to have read Girl on the Net's work before to enjoy this book - it stands brilliantly on its own. One of my favourite things about her writing is that her experiences with sex and relationships are so far removed from mine, that it's truly fascinating to read things from a completely different point of view (which is also hot as hell). But that doesn't mean the book isn't relatable - in fact, the journey she takes us on from casual-shagging to full-blown love with a man she can't get out of her head is entirely relatable, even if we haven't been through the same exact scenarios ourselves.

Girl on the Net's writing is smart, very funny, super-sexy (this book manages to share more sex adventures than I thought would be possible given the subject matter!) and a joy to read. I couldn't put it down.

If you've read Girl On The Net's other book (and if not you really should) a number of the stories in Bad Girl will seem familiar but they're given a new perspective by being looked at through the lens of love. Not very romantic love it must be said but this is a book that's probably better for that. It's about the warts and all of day to day love. The uncertainty, the bickering, the laziness that still can be part of love. There's big stuff too: sexual infidelity, babies (or not), mental illness. And then just sex. Hot, funny, real sex. Is GOTN still better at writing about sex than she is love? Yeah. She is. Does that make Book 2, the love story, less special? Nope. And it's still got lots of banging in it.

Ok its only march , but this is a great book , not just about sex but about love and relationship and pizza on the sofa on a Saturday night. Don't know who I loved the most Sarah or Mark ? I don't read sex blogs and although I have read prob every other young womans kiss and tell I usually find them braggy shouty silly girls who I don't even believe. This is a different refreshing honest sad sexy great book. Thank you .

To say I've been anticipating this book would be an understatement; as in I literally, upon meeting the author at Eroticon last year, asked her about when she was going to do a sequel to "My Not-So Shameful Sex Secrets". The answer was about nine months and the result of which is a rather different beast to the first book.

That's kind of to be expected seeing as book 1 (as I shall call it) covers everything from childhood to somewhere in the twenties, it's kind of inevitable that book 2 will have rather different material to work with. I would be tempted to say it feels like it lacks direction on occasion, but that doesn't do justice to the excellent job it does of painting a picture of a life, a relationship and a partner that is so well drawn through the pages of this book I feel like I know him without ever having met him.

One thing that book 2 does is focus less on sex, but what it loses in sexy fin times it makes up for in a gut-wrenching depiction of life in a modern anxiety-fuelled career. It is powerful stuff and contains moments that took me back to a very unhappy phase in my life and left me I had to take a moment before carrying on. But sweaty palms and trembling fingers aside, its heart-wrenching stuff and, even in the dark places, GOTN's characteristic humour shines through.

Overall it was funny, heart-warming, gut wrenching, borderline traumatising but in the best possible way. It's not the lightest of reads, but it doesn't get lost in the darkness either.
