First line: The coffee was strong, and hot, and drinkable, which almost made up for everything else.
Why you should read this book: Chelly Levin is bored at work, bored in her marriage, unfulfilled as an artist, and rapidly approaching a flat, gray, middle age when Noah Grimm, a once-nerdy admirer from her childhood, appears in a whirlwind of change and whisks her off to a wonderland of sexual ecstasy. This somewhat trashy but eminently readable chick-lit novel makes no apologies for its close examination of an adulterous affair and its inevitable conclusion, and manages to titillate, entertain, and shock the reader on the way. Not for the faint of heart, but certainly for those who appreciate a little illicit and well-described sex.
Why you shouldn't read this book: You believe marriage vows are sacred and cheating should be punishable by death.
