Publisher's Summary

The Sucias are back in this sexy showstopper of a novel from the best-selling author of The Dirty Girls Social Club.In Dirty Girls on Top, the Sucias are five years older, five times as much fun - but, sad to say, maybe not five times wiser.Lauren is at the top of her game as a columnist for the Boston Herald but still hasn't figured out how to pick a guy - or how to eat (and not eat) like a healthy person. And Usnavys is still sashaying all over town, all 260 pounds of her, dolled up in designer duds and ready for action - action from anyone except her husband, Juan, who has become just the littlest bit boring staying home taking care of the house and baby Carolina.Maybe the other Sucias could help Lauren and Usnavys - that is, if they didn't have so many of their own messes to deal with. Ella magazine founder Rebecca has just found out that her picture-perfect marriage may not yield any children. Sara may be the star of her own decorating show on television, but her dangerous pull toward her ex-husband Roberto isnï¿¿ï¿¿t so pretty. Amber keeps renaming herself, hoping that that's enough to keep the public interested in her music. And Elizabeth is discovering that a relationship with another woman takes more than being out and proud.Most of all, Dirty Girls on Top is all about sex and love - getting it, not getting it, yearning for it, having it with the wrong person, fighting it from the right person, trying it a new way, giving up on it, and, in the end, if your fingers are crossed, having it come out just the way it should.

Great Book, uncomfortable accent

Great story so i kept listening, but since all of these characters are Latinas--couldnt the narrator been trained to pronounce the Spanish slang properly? Thats what so funny about this series--the slang,its very distracting to have to try to figure out what they were attemping to say. Too bad!

Seriously? The narrator,Gringa accent insulting!

The continuation of the previous book was interesting. But, this new narrator was a gringa and her pronounciation of spanish words/slang was pathetic and insulting. Her NY and/or Boston accent was not much better. How important is this for an audio book? Had I known, I would have bought the paperback. I can't believe this was the best they could do. I had a very hard time paying attention to the story due to her sad sad attempt to speak spanish/spanglish. Alisa/editors, what were you thinking?
