"Recently divorced, 40-something single-mom, Lucy, is lonely, bored and craving physical connection. So, when her trusted long-time married friend, Nancy, begs Lucy to sleep with her husband to save her marriage, Lucy goes for it. It's such a success, the two friends invent a town-wide underground barter system whereby Nancy's married girlfriends sub-contract Lucy's divorcee friends to sleep with their husbands so they don't have to as often. It's a win, win, win- for a while. Then it all goes to hell in a hand-basket. Laugh-out-loud funny, emotionally provocative and at times racy, Nookietown is a story of risk-taking, marriage, honesty and desire, and what one woman rationalizes in order to get what she wants"--

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I was expecting a cheap chick-flick-esque story but this was compelling, enjoyable, interesting, and thoughtful. It was also hilarious. I picked it up on a whim just to help pass the time but I ended up loving it!

This isn't your average chick-lit book because the mature wife & the "other woman" knows each other & goes to business together for starters. A lot of emotional landmines here.
Book is fresh & surprisingly deep despite making fun of a lot of cliched tropes.
I could easily see bittersweet novel optioned to a movie & shown on W network within five years.
