A sexy, enjoyable glimpse of the "other side."
on 13 May 1999
So this confetti cover catches my eye. What kind of book gets this kind of weird cover? As a man, if it's a "woman's book," I won't be interested.
When I look inside I see sex - good stuff, with both emotions and sensations - from a woman's viewpoint. Is this for real? Most woman novelists are too indirect. But, checking the author photo, it was written by a real live woman. Just maybe, if I read this, I can get a glimpse of sex from the "other side."
And I read it, enjoying the sex as expected. And I do get to see the other side, not just the sex part either. Yes, it's a little romancy contrived - but not enough to spoil the fun. So why only three stars? Well, Steinbeck gets five. I'm sure Jennifer will understand. She does, after all, have a passionate sense of humor.
