I adored "Good in Bed" and was excited to see a sequel. I have never been more disappointed in a book. Not only does she ruin everything I loved about the original she goes and ruins Cannie's happy ending. Good in bed left Cannie on a happy note new baby, a good job, and a new love. This book does the opposite. I don't want to spoil anyone but for those who have read it know what I mean. I still love the writer and look forward to her books but who ever told her this book was a good idea needs to be slapped.

    I Think Disappointing Says It All...

    I struggled to get through a book that I was waiting to read - loved 'Good in Bed', but found this book disappointing. I found the characters undeveloped, whiny, judgemental, self-pitying, unrelatable and, with the exception of Peter, unlikable. It wasn't a 'beach read' unless you go to the beach to get depressed. Maxi who could have been a good character, wasn't developed in this book and I kept having to look back to remember who Samantha was. The book was disjointed, didn't flow well and, while being told from two different perspectives - one would have been too much. Obviously, some of the reviewers found something in there that I didn't - but no way would I recommend you buying this book unless you want to wallow in self pity. Take something lighter to the beach so you can have a good time!

    I skimmed through enough to know to put it down. I had read spoi

    I skimmed through enough to know to put it down. I had read spoilers from other reviewers so I was prepared for certain events. I was not interested in investing too much time into the book. The back and forth between the daughter's (Joy) narration and mother (cannie) I did not enjoy. If felt like Joy was just rehashing what Cannie had gone through in "Good in Bed". Loved that book and how it ended. The author should have just stopped there. I'm glad i didn't fully read it.

    Bummer

    After reading "Good In Bed" I was excited to find the next chapter in Cannie's life...but sad to say, this was disappointing. Made myself finish but the unexpected turn toward the end didnt even make me bat an eye. Really not a fan of this one.

    Hated It

    This book was a waste of time to read. The events towards the end of the book seem ridiculous and don't fit in with the rest of the story. Now that I'm thinking about it,the whole book was pretty ridiculous, so I should've expected the ending to be so. This is not even close to the caliber of writing in her other books, I am surprised that it is on the bestseller's list.
