*I received an advanced reading copy in exchange for an honest review
School psychologists aren’t supposed to write books about sex. Doing so would be considered “unethical” and “a fireable offense.” Lucky for you, ethics was never my strong suit.
After spending years trying to spice up my sex life, I gave up and took to my journal. Perhaps my gorgeous, cold, number crunching husband simply wasn’t capable of the kind of passion I’d come to expect. After all, my ex-boyfriends—a skinhead turned US Marine turned motorcycle club outlaw, a baby-faced punk rocker out on parole, and a heavy-metal bass player—were every bit as tattooed and testosterone-fueled as the leading men in my favorite romance novels. If I couldn’t have that kind of passion again in real life, at least I could write about it. Right? Nobody had to know. It would be my little secret.
Well, guess what? My husband read that shit.
And guess what else? He upped his fucking game.
Drunk with power and under the dubious advisement of my best friend and colleague, I began testing the limits—crafting journal entries specifically designed to manipulate Ken’s behavior. For the most part, he responded beautifully…except when he didn’t.
Told through actual journal entries, steamy short stories, personal emails, a few haikus, and at least one dirty limerick, 44 Chapters About 4 Men chronicles the year I spent toying with my husband’s mind and ignoring all ethical standards of psychology. I decided to publish it in the hopes that someone out there might benefit from my discovery—or at least laugh at it—but in doing so I’m risking more than just my career. If word of this book gets back to Ken, I could lose the very man I’ve worked so hard to perfect.
“Truer words had never been spoken.”
Well, wow. This is a good memoir of the author’s past relationships and her marriage, meaning it’s a true story. It has a unique way of telling love stories and hot adventures with the men he loved, as well as with her husband.
Hands down to Author BB Easton for openly sharing her sexperiences and other adventures during her teenage days to her readers. She’s very straightforward too, and I love it! It also proves that just because you’re a badass during teenage days, doesn’t mean you’ll don’t have a brighter future ahead of you.
Alsoooo, I like the putting up of a glossary on the first page since the words included there are made by the author herself. They make sense. Swear. :)) I like the sausagefest term, and mooore.
I also felt what the author is feeling in some instances like she wants to stop but fate won’t let her. Things like that. I felt relieved upon discovering why Ken is a husbot!!! Hahahahaha. His reason is so cute for me and funny thinking how BB thought of many reasons why he is like that.
It’s so so funny and entertaining!! It can transform the mood into being hot and then suddenly you’ll be laughing your ass out! But I got sad on one major thing that happened. 😦
AND BB? I actually believed the some exaggerated journal entries that Ken is never ever allowed to read. Good job for you! :)))
