Review & Giveaway: Prospect Park West by Amy Sohn


Rachel is stuck in a loveless marriage and has dreams of meeting a man who will sweep her off her feet and carry her around for the rest of her life. Rachel and her husband's non-existence sex life has been dried up since before their daughter was born. She ends up meeting a man who she has a steamy affair with, Stuart who is also married. When she winds up pregnant there is no way to deny the consequences of their actions. Lizzie used to be a lesbian but she is now married to a man with whom she has a son. During a conversation, Rachel kisses Lizzie. How many more twists and turns can one group of people take?

If you are looking to read an in-depth, meaningful read, this is not the book for you. If you're in the mood for a fun yet trashy read that reminds me of a soap opera, this is up your alley. It's entertaining and I found it to be a nice escape from reality.
