M.J. Stark’s life is picture-perfect—she has her dream job as a magazine editor, a sexy doctor boyfriend, and a glamorous life in New York City. But behind her success, there is a debilitating sense of loneliness. So when her boss betrays her and her boyfriend offers her a completely new life in California, she trades her cashmere for caftans and gives it a try.
Once there, M.J. is left to fend for herself in a small beach town, with only the company of her elderly neighbor, Gloria, and an ocean that won’t shut up. One afternoon, M.J. discovers that Gloria has suddenly moved to Paris with her friends to honor a fifty-year-old pact. And in lieu of a goodbye, she’s left a mysterious invitation to a secret club—one that only reads erotic books.
Curious, M.J. accepts and meets the three other hand-selected club members. As they bond over naughty bestsellers and the shocking letters they inherited from the original club members, the four strangers start to divulge the intimate details of their own lives… and as they open up, they learn that friendship might just be the key to rewriting their own stories: all they needed was to find each other first.

Hello readers!! It has been one hot minute (more like months) but I have a few reviews for you all. I hope you have all been reading and enjoying it. Since school started for the kiddos things have been busy. I thought when school got out that I would have all summer for reading and that wasn’t the case. Then I thought when the kids are back in school I’ll have time for more reading and so far… well.. I have been BUSIER. Insert sad puppy dog face here.
Onto ‘The Dirty Book Club.” This book ended up being so hilarious. I really wasn’t sure what I had gotten myself into when I started it. It is not Erotica. I swear. This book is a story about friendships and staying true to yourself. The Dirty Book Club starts with four women back in the 60’s who were best friends. The kind that could tell each other everything. They created a safe place to talk about absolutely everything and anything they wanted. They made a pact and when it finally comes time to keep their sisterhood promises they leave the club to four new women.
The story line follows M.J as she leaves New York and moves in with her handsome Doctor boyfriend. Its a culture shock for her. She is figuring things out as well working on herself. She meets Gloria her new neighbor and that is how she ends up a part of the “club.” As each new recruit has their own problems they realize they need each other. They all start out hating each other, or misunderstanding and judging each other. This one has all the feels! I truly enjoyed it and I was sad when it ended.
Thanks for reading!
