Review & Giveaway: Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives by Josie Brown


Harry and his wife have separated and living next door to the DILF (Dad I'd Like to F---) is Lyssa Harper. Harry is struggling with the new lifestyle change and there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day. He's juggling his job, raising his kids and dealing with the fact that his marriage is over. Lyssa decides that the proper thing to do is introduce Harry to the Paradise Heights Women's League Board so that it's members can help Harry with this difficult transition. Soon, he is inundated with help. Help that keeps women flocking to his door. Harry appreciates help but this is all way too much for him which leads him to do the logical thing. He is on the Women's League crap list. The only friend that understand is the Lyssa and pretty soon she starts looking at Harry in a whole new light. She begins to question her own union and wonders which path she wants to take at this new fork in the road called life.

WOW! I don't even really know what to say. This was an amazing book that kept me entertained from page one until the end. If you like "Desperate Housewives" you will absolutely adore this book. I would even venture to say that it's better than the TV show.  Gasp!  I know, I didn't expect that either!
