Neville is her son’s father, her best friend, and her sometime lover, but Crystal realizes she wants more. And that “more” struts into her life at just the right moment. Claude Justine, widowed with a three-year-old daughter, has movie-star good looks, an athlete’s body, and cash to spare. After a short and steamy long-distance courtship, Claude lures Crystal to his lavish New Jersey mansion and introduces her to a jet-setting world where no pleasure is spared and every desire is met. Karma Jackson, newly made over and back in New York after a scandalous affair in Europe, secures a position as an assistant to the president of a hedge fund.

Geneva, now living in Brooklyn, listens to both women’s tales of impromptu helicopter rides and lingerie sprees, failing to make the connection between the two men. But when Claude’s web of lies starts to unravel, the truth is even more outrageous than any of them could have imagined…

Description : If you’re going to adopt a philosophy to live by, make it one that gets your heart pumping and unleashes your spirit of adventure! Married Men Make the Best Lovers is a classic, smart, and sassy advice book from the 1960s, the heyday of the sexual revolution. As one of the most outspoken leaders of the movement, Ruth Dickson unleashes a wicked mind, a razor-edged wit, and the freewheeling attitude that made her one of the most popular writers of the day. After years of personal research, she offers pointed advice on becoming a happy and successful Other Woman, covering everything from the selection, capture, and care of a married lover to his ultimate release. She leaves no stone unturned, discussing every aspect of the affair, up to and including the problematic Wife. Wrapping things up with an informative Q&A, Married Men Make the Best Lovers is a must-read for any woman who treasures both her single status and the enjoyment of a rich, fulfilling sex life. And for those ladies (and gentlemen) who seek further enrichment, Dickson went on to author the definitive non-marriage manual, Now That You’ve Got Me Here, What Are We Going to Do? Sexier than Helen Gurley Brown, wittier than Xaviera Hollander, Ruth Dickson tells the truth, makes you laugh, gives you innovative ideas and thoughtful advice on how to navigate the tricky waters of true freedom of choice. Other Woman status may not be for everybody but it’s difficult to disregard Dickson's cleverly persuasive argument in defense of this provocative lifestyle.
