5.0 out of 5 stars A witty, moving and thought provoking book about love, romance, marriage and sex. An unputdownable read., 28 July 2011
This review is from: The 52 Seductions (Paperback)
Betty and Herbert were a happily married couple. Happy that is apart from the sex side of their relationship. After ten years of marriage sex had become more of a monthly chore than the hot, unable-to-keep-their-hands-off-each-other lust they used to feel for each other.

Sound familiar? I think it probably rings a bell with the majority of couples that have been together more than a handful of years.

So how do you get that spark back? Betty set herself and Herbert a challenge: 52 seductions throughout the next year, taking it in turns each week to seduce the other.

The 52 Seductions tells of their journey through the seductions over the year, the awkwardness of revealing your fantasies and desires to the one who knows you so well and how things change, or don't, as the weeks go by. It's often hilarious, always honest and told in a beautiful, flowing narrative that pulls you in to Betty and Herbert's world and has you laughing out loud inappropriately in public places or staring off into space deep in thought.

I fell utterly, deeply in love with this book from the first chapter. It's not one of those dreaded books on `How To Spice Up Your Marriage' that ooze desperation and despair. Nor is it full of cringe-worthy details of positions and frilly, polyester French maids outfits. It is instead an honest, frank and moving account of one couples journey to rediscovering the intimate side of their relationship, and themselves.

And if it doesn't have you clutching your sides in stitches at least once through the book you are probably dead inside.
