"Hilarious, heart-warming story!"
Just when she thinks things can't get much worse and she's
about ready to go out with her fiancé for New Year's Eve,
Brenda gets dumped by Mr. Perfect. At least that's how she
refers to him, Larry is always perfect—the perfect clothes,
perfect hairstyle, perfect car. Since her roommate is
having one of her parties, Brenda decides to get drunk
since she no longer has anything else to do. Imagine her
surprise when she wakes up the morning, naked, next to a
very handsome naked man! Of course, she can't seem to
remember the sex though. After he leaves, Brenda decides to
do some soul searching and decides to go lingerie shopping.
So she goes into one of the more expensive boutiques and
the next thing you know, Brenda is hooked on expensive
lingerie. While going to the store one day, Brenda almost
gets run over. The driver turns out to be none other than
the naked man she woke up next to New Year's Day. They
decide to go on a date.
While all this is happening, Brenda's brother comes home
with one of his friends. It turns out his wife threw him
out when he got laid off. Now, all she wants is his money.
So he turns to Mom, who takes him and his friend in. Well
imagine everyone's surprise when Mom is sleeping with her
brother's friend! The man is her brother's age and he's
become her mother's new boy-toy!
Will Brenda be able to maintain the persona of the lingerie
addict and all around wild and crazy woman? What will
happen to her budding relationship with Nick, the stud from
New Year's Eve? And don't forget Brenda's brother, will he
ever find happiness? And then there's also Mom, what will
happen when both Brenda and her brother won't speak to the
CONFESSIONS OF A LINGERIE ADDICT is a wildly funny and
hilarious story. Jennifer Ashley has done a wonderful job
of portraying Brenda with all her hang ups and doubts. We
get to ride along with Brenda as she becomes the woman she
was meant to be. Of course, there are a few spills and
bumps in the road on the way there, from having to go to
Mexico with her ex-fiancé, Mr. Perfect, to bail her brother
and roommate out of jail, to just starting to get intimate
with her date on her mother's boat when her brother comes
in and breaks everything up. This is really a funny story
and I laughed out loud while reading it. I have to admit,
my favorite part was Easter dinner on the boat. This is one
I highly recommend to anyone needing a laugh in their life.

The fixation began on New Year's Day: Silky, expensive slips from New York and Italy. Camisoles and thongs from Beverly Hills. Before, Brenda Scott would have blushed to be caught dead in them. Now, she'd ditched the shy and mousy persona that had gotten her dumped by her rich and perfect fiancé, and she was sexy. Underneath her sensible clothes, Brenda was the woman she wanted to be. After all, why couldn't she be wild and crazy? Nick, the sexy stranger she'd met on New Year's, already seemed to think she was. Of course, he didn't know the old Brenda. How long before Nick stripped it all away and found the truth beneath? And would that be a bad thing?
