"An entertaining and educational firsthand account of an older woman's single sexual life."
“The Book of Hot: A Manifesto lives up to its subtitle as a call to arms—and legs, and sundry other parts of the female anatomy…”

Amazon #1 New Release
Fabulous Goddesses: Mrs. Hot here, inspiring, empowering and entertaining you to the vibrant vitality, sexuality, and joy you deserve on your own personal Mission: Possible. Sixty is the new forty—or even thirty!—as we simply refuse to hang up our running shoes or our sexual attractiveness. To the very, fabulous end!
I’m a gorgeous Goddess who transformed from drab to fab, rut to strut, and shot to hot! I found myself in my late fifties facing a future of loneliness, infirmity, and pain—single, in a job from hell, and battling emotional issues that left me unhealthy, unattractive, and in despair. The only men on my sofa were Ben and Jerry! With time goosing me with “it’s now or never,” I plunged into my makeover, a journey of emotional, physical, and sexual healing; then, after decades away from it, the world of dating, with its mind-blowing contemporary dynamics. Fearless, edgy, and disruptive, I’m Sex and the City’s Samantha 2.0, now fully ripened—and that much more wise, joyous, and juicy. We’re not getting older, we’re getting bolder; my quarter million Facebook followers agree (www.facebook.com/SmokinMrsHot/).
Life should be lived at full tilt at any age, without boundaries and without apology. To that end, I share my journey and wisdom with you here, much adapted from my blog at http://www.mrshot.com. Unabashedly feminine yet feminist, I write about health, beauty, allure, sexuality, self-actualization, and the romance and sex life these pursuits make possible—my erotic adventures. Meanwhile, I encourage you to access your own Inner Goddess to create the fabulous life you deserve!
Part One: In Hot Pursuit details my transformation and sets you on your path to an exuberant, sexy lifestyle. In Part Two, I share some of my erotic stories—True Confessions. You’ll meet my local MENagerie, as well as a few exotic foreign acquisitions: intriguing men of all ages.
Why exist an existence when we can live a Life à la Hot?

I thought this would be a book about one woman's road to self love. Learning to love herself becoming the "goddess" she knew she was. While I may not agree with her process, this woman did what she needed to do to lover herself. And however she got there, I am glad she did. I did not like this book, I did not like the writing, I did not like anything about it. THAT aside. I found this book to be hypocritical and plain damaging. While I think this book was meant to be empowering, for me tearing another woman down is never empowering. There were small statements like "Men are harrier than we are. So the less we have the more attractive we become." and describing shaving as “our cross to bear” .... So if women do not shave we are not attractive? A woman's attractiveness is based on how smooth her pits are? ok... When talking about weight she says "A chocolate is always a welcome sensual indulgence on ones bedtime pillow. A toothpick not so much" So sorry to the ladies who were born with a fast metabolism ... because the implication is you are not desirable in bed. Referring to an instagram post, by what she calls a “so called feminist” and “feminazi” she says “She was venting her fury at men in a long tirade of defiant demands. I don’t need to wear lipstick. I don’t need to be thin. I don’t need to grow my hair long. I don’t need to shave my legs...” she goes on to say that this “sputtering red faced “feminist” " was forcing rules on women. Dictating what a feminist is. If you call someone a "so called feminist" aren’t YOU implying that they are not a feminist, therefore dictating that a feminist is. She ends the chapter by saying, "To the feminazi haters for whom not grooming is a political statement. Go ahead feel free not to wash your hair. Feel free also not to get asked out. Just saying." Putting another woman down based solely on her opinions is that feminism? Bringing down another woman’s self worth? Is that feminism? Because the implication that another woman should change herself to be “date-able"... all I can say is if THAT is the kind of feminist you are ... then I mean call me a feminazi any day. The very next chapter she says. "True feminists: powerful women who make their own choices." She says "true feminism is girl power. That means having the freedom to choose to wear makeup or not. To shave your legs or not. To grow a jungle under your armpits or not..." That is exactly what the woman you JUST criticized said. She said "I don't need to wear lipstick" You said "Having the freedom to choose to wear makeup or not" HOW are those two statements different? Moving onto weight She says "If big is beautiful. Then it follows that diabetes is beautiful. But it’s not. And that dear reader is the elephant in the room for the elephants in the room..." A little further on she says to "post loving messages to yourself. Like I love myself. I am beautiful. I accept myself unconditionally exactly as I am right now” I assume she forgot to add in the disclaimer that this is NOT for the “elephants in the room” you guys continue hating yourself. And change. Oh and don't be happy. This book in my opinion is everything wrong in the world of feminism and equality. The term "feminazi" to describe a woman who does not feel the need to conform to what society has told them is beautiful, to call another woman an elephant? THAT is not feminism.
Not what I expected Mrs. Hot pens an interesting Manifesto, called The Book of Hot. I must admit it wasn't what I thought it was, but I found it more interesting and kept reading it. Basically, life does not end after 60, and it can become more exciting and intense. Mrs. Hot wants the reader to channel their Inner Goddess. She also writes, "Here’s to activating your happiest, healthiest, sexiest you, not just existing, but living your own ever youthful, ever-vibrant Life à la Hot." And then it begins. Definitely not for the faint of heart, but what is written is captivating and thought-provoking. If you're looking for some interestingly "hot" confessions and tales of sexual explorations, then this is that story.
