The Dirty Book Club
By: Lisi Harrison
Release Date: October 10th
Synopsis: M.J. Stark’s life is picture-perfect—she has her dream job as a magazine editor, a sexy doctor boyfriend, and a glamorous life in New York City. But behind her success, there is a debilitating sense of loneliness. So when her boss betrays her and her boyfriend offers her a completely new life in California, she trades her cashmere for caftans and gives it a try. Once there, M.J. is left to fend for herself in a small beach town, with only the company of her elderly neighbor, Gloria, and an ocean that won’t shut up.
One afternoon, M.J. discovers that Gloria has suddenly moved to Paris with her friends to honor a fifty-year-old pact. And in lieu of a goodbye, she’s left a mysterious invitation to a secret club—one that only reads erotic books. Curious, M.J. accepts and meets the three other hand-selected club members. As they bond over naughty bestsellers and the shocking letters they inherited from the original club members, the four strangers start to divulge the intimate details of their own lives… and as they open up, they learn that friendship might just be the key to rewriting their own stories: all they needed was to find each other first.
Thoughts: There is no shame in my game and I will be the first to admit that I love a good “dirty” book. Well, I love romance and I think that I am not alone, well I know I am not alone in that. So when offered an advance copy of The Dirty Book Club, I was ready. My opinion – this book is a fun read and it reminds you – you are not alone in the things that you love and the things that you like.
You aren’t even close.
It tells you it’s okay to let go. It’s okay to just be yourself and make connections with people. And reading this book, I felt like I was doing just that.
The book wasn’t so much about erotic novels as it was about relationships. It was comforting to read.
Lisi Harrison poured her heart into this book and it’s apparent on every page. I quickly became invested in the characters and their lives. I cheered, I cried, I laughed, and overall, I had a fantastic time.
The Dirty Book Club is a can’t miss. That ending… ?.
Blurb: I laughed and rooted for the characters. The Dirty Book Club was a satisfying read that made me turn the pages as quickly as I could.
