First comes love. Then comes marriage. Followed by boredom, infidelity, nasty surprises, and divorce.

In this wickedly funny, tender and true novel, bestselling author Holly Chamberlin introduces four Boston divorcées looking for love, sex, fun—and themselves…

Jess Marlowe didn’t mean to fall out of love with her husband. It just happened—kind of like the passionate affair with a grad student. Oopsie. Now, her marriage is over, so’s the affair, and Jess? Well, she feels like she’s just beginning. And the only thing scarier than being in a boring, doomed marriage is the strength of her passions now that she’s free…

Nell Keats had it all: money, marriage, two grown children…until the day her husband announced he was leaving her—for another man. Now Nell’s diving back into a whole new dating pool (since when did “Let’s do it doggie style” become a romantic pick-up line?) and feeling her way around. And once she breaks out of her shell, there’s no going back…

Laura Keats, Nell’s younger sister, wanted a baby; her ex-husband didn’t. No problem. Like a general mounting a war campaign, Laura’s on a mission to find that P.F.M. (Perfect Father Material), a quest that will take her through outrageous chat rooms, singles’ clubs, parenting groups, and other disasters, and into the arms of the one guy who should be off-limits…

Grace Henley is still financially—and emotionally—supporting her ex, a promising artist whose greatest talents were in bed…mostly other women’s. She can’t seem to stop listening to his tales of woe, letting him crash on her couch, even lending him money. No more. It’s time for Grace to learn to live her own life and produce her own work. But letting go is even harder than holding on…

Nobody said life was fair. That love was forever. Or that getting back in the game would be easy. Then again, nobody said they had to play by the rules, either…
