Frankie Green's happy ever after is put on hold when her childhood sweetheart husband complains things are boring in bed.

When he asks for some space, she sets out to win him back by getting herself a sex education.

Little does she know that her hilarious, tender and embarrassing journey of enlightenment is going to change everything...

A story full of humour, heartache and happiness, of friendship, coming of age and overcoming insecurity.

This is the third book I have read by Laura Kemp, and I am very impressed with the increased maturity in her writing skills. This is a very entertaining story, that had me shocked in some places, at just how inexperienced Frankie really is, but the efforts she goes to, to learn more about sex are hilarious. 

She embarks on a journey of sexual awakening, when her husband Jason, walks out as she is apparently boring in bed. Frankie decides she needs to learn how to be better at sex, but as it turns out without actually getting down and doing it with anyone else. The person who steps up to be her teacher, is trying to get over a woman, and  is a fabulous teacher. 

Frankie's teacher manages to continually put her at her ease, while talking through and a"acting" out some of her suxal bucket list. I loved how Frankie grew as a woman during this story, as her confidence and sensuality become more apparent.

In addition we also learn about Frankie's best friends Em, and Letty. Both of which who are overcoming their own challenges in this story. There is a moment with Leyty that has me laughing out lout, as she finally succeeds at something. Em's story is just as good, and she is a lovely friend to have, and I loved seeing how her own possible relationship develops. 

What I really loved was despite Frankie being scared to really try much new at the start, she slowly comes out of her shell with some help from a special friend, and is determined to win her husband back. 

There is an enjoyable sense of humour in this book, and although it didn't have me laugh out loud, it did have me entertained for the whole story. 

Thank you so much to Netgalley and Aria for this review copy. This was my honest opinion.

  1. Well, I'm wondering, if the husband wasn't the sort of person who could coax her gently out of her shell, whether she'd want him back. I think I'm going to have to read this one, Rachel. Thanks for sharing! :) xx
