I Wanted to Let You Know

Cheryl over at Cheryl's Book Nook is giving away a copy of JJ Salem's racy debut, Tan Lines. I've not had a chance to get my grubby little fingers on a copy just yet, but I gotta tell you that based on the reviews it's getting, it's a HOT one!

Here's what PW had to say: 

"A Jacqueline Susann–style thriller by way of Candace Bushnell, Salem's scorching debut follows three young women on a wild Hamptons summer of reinventing themselves. Unhappy with fireman hubby Justin (whom she married in the aftermath of 9/11), fashionista feminist and political media pundit Liza Pike, 29, is harvesting her eggs for future momhood and considering divorce. Former actress Kellyanne Downey is the depressed mistress of wealthy, possessive businessman Walter Isherwood, while indie rock chick Billie Shelton finds herself on a downhill slide: I can't. I'm all fucked out. Reschedule. A prologue foretells that a grisly murder, a premature birth, and a public meltdown, will be the eventual fate for the three at the posh Hampton summer rental they're sharing, and Salem doesn't disappoint. Her poolside read throbs with intensity, spiked with erotic detail (eight thousand nerve endings in the clitoris, and this son of a bitch couldn't find any of them) and disturbing aftershocks."

So, head over to Cheryl's page and enter to win what sounds like one of this summer's steamiest titles!

Haha, that was in the very first ad that I saw for this book and I was like, WHAT??!!

The book is getting fantastic reviews, though. I also read an interesting article in last week's PW by the author that was quite amusing.
