In Amy Sohn’s smart, sexy, satirical peek into the bedrooms and hearts of Prospect Park West, the lives of for women come together during one long, hot Brooklyn summer. Frustrated Oscar-winning actress Melora Leigh eager to relieve the pressures of raising her adopted toddler, feels the seductive pull of kleptomania; Rebecca Rose, missing her formerly robust sex life, begins a dangerous flirtation with handsome neighborhood celebrity Lizzi O’Donnell, former lesbian (or "hasbian"), wonders what draws her to women despite her sexy husband and adorable baby; and Karen Bryan Shapiro consumes herself with a powerful obsession—snagging the ultimate three-bedroom apartment in a well-maintained, P.S. 321–zoned co-op building. As the women’s paths intertwined (an sometimes collide), each must struggle to keep her man, her sanity . . and her playdates.

So sorry that Amy Sohn's experiences as a mother in Brooklyn have left her so battle-scarred and bitter that she needs to pick on whole categories of women just to get a cheap laugh in her book. Her reference to big women and the alleged size of the anatomy of the men who love them was just another sad example of women bashing other women for no reason. I'm a proud BBW, not a mother of anyone, and will refrain from criticizing any groups of women, mothers or otherwise. I will save my criticism for individual authors, like this one, who choose not to do the same. I wish I could get my money back from iTunes. Needless to say, I'm not even going to bother finishing the book now.
I definitely recommend for anyone looking for an interesting beach read
