No-One Ever Has Sex #5
Get ready to enjoy your first holiday abroad with small children. Highlights include: being woken at 5 every morning and working a gruelling day in 30-degree heat chasing kids around the pool with a bottle of sunscreen. Added features: screaming during mealtimes and toddlers moaning about sand. Absolutely no sex guaranteed or your money back!
Katy and Ben and their four closest friends are going to Spain for a week with their kids. Sun, sex and sangria? Almost certainly not.
The couples think they are prepared for all the joys and trials a family holiday has to offer but they have a shock coming, and not only from the kids. Into their first day by the pool crashes Ollie, who has just been dumped by his girlfriend, and Cassie, on her hen party holiday but having serious doubts about her impending marriage. A recipe for a relaxing week abroad? Let’s wait and see…
I have read the previous book and I remember I utterly enjoyed it. Now it was time to attack this one. Unfortunately it’s the last one in the series. It’s sad on the one hand, but I still have 3 books to look forward to, because I have not read part 1 to 3.
I have never been on holiday with one or more small children, but I remember my sister doing it and it felt like there were about 10 suitcases for the girls and a small backpack for her and my brother in law. 🙂
The way the author described the situations the parents found themselves in are exactly as I imagined them. Utter chaos and probably a lot of fun for the little ones, but more stress than peace for the grown up ones.
I don’t applaud Abby’s behaviour, but I could understand what she meant. Going from one phase in your life to the next one, is always saying a bit goodbye. On the plus side, there are new adventures waiting for you and new memories waiting to be collected and cherished.
I loved the parents sticking together, looking out and helping each other. In their own chaos they still took the time to support others, even if it mixed up their own plans.
An easy summer read that put a smile on my face more than once. 5 stars
About the author
I started writing when my cruel, heartless husband ripped me away from my dream job, shopping for rollercoasters for the UK’s leading theme parks, to live in America with a brand new baby and no mates. In a cunning plan to avoid domestic duties and people who didn’t understand my Derbyshire accent, I wrote NO-ONE EVER HAS SEX ON A TUESDAY. It went on to be successfully published internationally and became an ebook Number 1 Best Seller in the UK in 2013 before being named Best Author Published Read at the Festival of Romance.
