Lindy's life changes when her old school friend, Natalie suddenly comes back to London with her gorgeous architect fiance in tow. The girls haven't spoken in years - they fell out over a boy, of course - and to make matters worse, Natalie's now a big TV star in the States. Any woman who's ever lived in the shadow of a prettier best friend will know exactly how Lindy feels. And whether you're in a relationship or single you'll agonise with Lindy over what to do when she realises that she fancies someone other than the nice bloke she married. This is a very witty and insightful book about love, sex, relationships, marriage, friendship and it's a real page-turner. I loved it and found myself falling in love with the characters too. If you liked Bridget Jones Diary or you're a fan of Friends then you'll love Lip Kisses too. It's the perfect book to take on holiday or curl up in bed with.
Hopefully she will just improve her writing as she does more books, I'm willing to read her next offering anyway.
The book starts at a press conference where the main character, Lindy Usher, is doing a photoshoot. Her eyes meet with a man on the other side of the room and they feel 'The Connection'. Before long, they are drunk, and are kissing passionately outside. Lindy would like things to go further, but there's just one problem. The husband.
It's not like Lindy has an unhappy marriage to her husband, Andrew, who she met on a ski holiday. It's just that he's not exciting enough anymore. Besides, he was the one who seduced her, and he's a Kind Man (something that Lindy's not used to).
When Lindy decides that she would like a new job (her current one is going nowhere) she triggers a chain of events that leads her to meet her oldest ex-friend - Natalie. They went through school together, but fell out over a boy, as teenage girls do. Now she's successful, Lindy needs to organise a photo shoot. Surprisingly, she agrees to come back to England, with her irresistable fiancee Max in tow.
As the past events are explained, Lindy finds her life changing in a way she never knew it could - and all because of some lip kisses. Can she stay with her husband? Is Natalie still cunning like she was? And can she resist the charms of the sexy Max?

Can't remember how this book found its way onto my bookshelf, as its title and jacket design/colours shout very loudly to the 21-35's and it was many moons ago that I saw 35!! Read morePublished on 22 May 2007 by Carole Eva
