Here is the synopsis from the book: Here's What I think:
At age thirty-three, Josephine Miles is forced to come up with a brand-new life when her husband leaves her for "the cliche"--his very young, very pretty secretary. Suddenly she's single and back in the dating game with the added complication of children in tow. But Jo's no wallflower, and she soon finds herself with not one but four eligible bachelors vying for her time and affections. Add her two kids and her now booming interior design business to the mix, and she winds up with a nightmarish schedule but a dreamy love life.
So who are the contestants? There's Sean, the sexy foreign affairs correspondent who sweeps Jo off her feet and proves to be masterful in bed; Martin, the music industry mogul who offers luxury, stability, and a glamorous lifestyle; and Conor, Jo's trusted confidant, who knows just what to say to make her smile (why hadn't she noticed his irresistible smile until now?). Then there's Jeff, her ex-husband: she wouldn't consider hooking up with him again, would she? It could happen--especially when Jeff's romance with the sweet young thing sours and he launches a full-scale campaign to win Jo back.
Sophisticated, spirited, and as compulsive as a box of bonbons, Fourplay offers a new take on the single-girl life perfect for the thirty-something audience. Fourplay--what a position to be in...
Fourplay is written with "Bridget Jones' Diary" vibe to it - sort of tongue in cheek, real, raw emotions. Moore pulls no punches when she swims through Jo's post break-up life. I also love that it is set in England and uses all of the words and phrases that I, as an American, am not totally familiar with but now understand them better thanks to contextual defining. Jane Moore is a TV journalist and I think that this really gives her a more realistic point of view when it comes to the aftermath of a broken marriage.
This is not really a book I would have picked up on my own. It was selected by my monthly mom's book club and I decided to give it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised at how entertained I was by the prose. It has really encouraged me to delve outside my usual genre (paranormal romance) into other sections of the library. There are four other novels my Jane Moore that I have now added to my TBR pile. If you want to learn more about Jane Moore please visit: www.janemoore.com
