My thoughts…

With an awesome Instagram name like that (@hotpatooties), this book could only be amazing right? Right! With much needed injections of humour balanced with down to Earth wake up calls and reality – this was such a refreshing book to read.

Dawn O’Porter writes true life and reality without flinching. She’s shocking, but she’s also realistic. And within this book she unearths many hidden feelings amongst the key characters. There was the right amount of humour and an equal balance of low points. The depressing aspects of this book frustrated me and I really disliked them – but that’s what made the book so good. I wanted to shake the characters in frustration. Then I realised quite often, I was like them.

About the book…


Beth shows that women really can have it all.
Ruby lives life by her own rules.
And then there’s Lauren, living the dream.


Beth hasn’t had sex in a year.
Ruby feels like she’s failing.
Lauren’s happiness is fake news.

And it just takes one shocking event to make the truth come tumbling out…
