Overview

"Even though this book is not as funny as mine, you should still buy it." —Chelsea Handler

Delivering the perfect mix of poignant insights, laugh-out-loud confessions, and spicy secrets, Love, Lust & Faking It will be an instant favorite…but it may find its way to your nightstand instead of your bookcase.

Editorial Reviews

Jenny McCarthy entered global consciousness when the October 1993 issue of Playboy arrived in mailboxes. McCarthy's brief reign as Playmate of the Month (and then as Playmate of the Year) heralded only the beginning of her more significant career as a bestselling author. Her Belly Laughs, Baby Laughs, and Life Laughs all popped onto charts, including our own. Her latest hot release offers bosomy truths about first love, dating, heartbreak, foreplay, faking it, the power of "saying no," sex with the lights on, sex with the lights off, and other topics none of us have the strength to ignore. So juicy you will start reading it on the way to the register. Now in paperback and NOOK Book.

I have to admit, I've always been fascinated by Jenny McCarthy and her willingness to put it all out there, which she certainly does in Love, Lust and Faking It. I love the snipets of random information intertwined with some funny/interesting personal experiences told as only Jenny can. Thanks Jenny, for taking an honest look and evaluating the process of growing up. The book is not for sissies, so if sex stuff makes you uncomfortable, consider a cookbook instead. But if you can take it this book will make you laugh and think, 2 of my favorite things. Thanks for putting it all out there again Jenny.

I just bought this book yesterday and read it in about 3 hours. I really enjoyed it. It is racy though so if you are very conservative stay away. It has some nice relationship stuff in there and lots of humor. Its like reading a really long email from your best funniest friend. I want all my girlfriends to read it (well the liberal ones!) A great read!

I've read all of Jenny McCarthy's books and this one is just as funny as the others! Her blunt honesty is always VERY refreshing! Hey, someone has to say what were all thinking! This book, and all her others, would make a wonderful gift for friends who can laugh at life AND themselves!

I'm going through a divorce and a tough time personally, and this was just what I needed right now. Jenny kept me laughing through the whole thing! While I've been feeling down, I've felt like I have a new friend I could just pick up any time to help me through the day. Pure and truthful, I was not offended at all by her bluntness and language. I wish I could thank her personally!!

Back in January I had myself a wee obsession with Jenny McCarthy's books and kinda read 4 of them within a week or so and this was the last of them that I read, and really enjoyed, maybe not as much as the other books I've read by her but I still liked it. I really enjoyed reading about her life post divorce and coping with being a single mom too her young son Evan. I also learned a lot about her life before she became famous which was hilarious especially when she talked about her exploits as a Bunny. Love, Lust and Faking it was just as gritty as her previous books but they lacked a flow. She tended to jump all over the place with her stories and sometimes I'd be reading about her life before being famous, then post divorce, then back again it was very jumbled and that was the main reason why I didn't love this book as much as her others. Plus many times while reading it seemed as though things were a tad bit forced and I'm not used to that. Usually in her books her humour as gritty as it is seamless and flowing which I think was lost in this one. Luckily though it was still a hilarious read and one that I'm pretty sure I'm going to read again when I need a laugh. Seeing Jenny write about her personal life experiences is great as it's not a side many celebrities are willing to show so it's awesome they have good and bad days like the rest of us. Overall, I thought this was a pretty good book and I'd recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Jenny McCarthy and her wicked sense of humour. I can't wait to read another book by her and I hope she comes out with a new one soon.

Amazing

I really have mixed feelings about this book. On the plus side, her stories are wacky and zany. On the other side, she is writing a sex counseling manuel, complete with interviews with therapists and counselors. Overall, its a mediocre book with too many counseling interviews.
