"amusing chick lit"
Thirtyish, Juliet Cooper wonders if that is all there is
to life. She would love them and leave them as a serious
sexual serial offender, but currently does not do the
latter as she finds men boring. She had no intention of
turning to women or the bondage game her friend Mel the
dominatrix does. Instead, Juliet envies her other best
pal Gillian who is happily married to the faithful Jeremy.
However, even that dream haven turns false when Gill,
jealous of the sexual freedom of her bud, leaves Jeremy,
who has not touched her in forever. While Juliet works to
keep Liam, the upcoming star of a new TV cook show she
will produce, out of trouble with women, Gill begins
dating. After meeting Philip, Juliet wonders if a nunnery
would be better, but then there is always Architect Alex,
who actually stirs her blood, but will Juliet allow him
the opportunity to shake her bones?
MY LURID PAST is an amusing chick lit tale that loses some
of the luster due to the lack of sympathy the decadent
Juliet will receive. The lead character seems spoiled and
Gill comes off worse for not even making a real effort to
communicate with her spouse. Still, the tale is often
humorous especially when Mel is leading some dog collared
male around as her slave.
