Georgina Wagman has a picture-perfect life, with a fantastic husband, amazing career, and even a wonderful group of friends. Everything is incredible until she learns her husband, Nathan, is having an office affair. This was absolutely not part of Georgina’s five-year plan. She is so desperate to save her marriage that she decides to try out the swinger scene and convinces her friends, Felix and Norah, to join her. Taylor’s debut is a fresh, fun, and hilarious summer read with heart. Narrated by Christine Lakin, the novel explores what happens when the life we thought we had implodes, and we are forced to salvage it or make something entirely new. Romance fans will appreciate Lakin’s versatile narration, playfully depicting flirty, sexy scenes, while sensitively portraying the depth of Georgina’s soul-searching. Plenty of awkwardly funny moments contrast with the pain that comes with losing the life you thought you wanted.
VERDICT Listeners will enjoy Georgina’s newfound sense of empowerment and will find some laughs along the way. A fresh take on romance that is recommended for fans of Emily Henry and Sophie Kinsella.
