Publisher's Summary

From the perennially hot author and columnist Amy Sohn comes a smart, sexy, satirical peek into the bedrooms and hearts of Prospect Park West.Brooklyn's famed neighborhood of Park Slope has it all: the sprawling, majestic Prospect Park; acclaimed public schools; historic brownstones; and progressive values. The more upwardly mobile New Yorkers discover its virtues, the more that claiming a stake in Park Slope becomes a competitive sport.In the park, the coffee shops, and the playgrounds of the neighborhood, four women's lives collide one long, hot Brooklyn summer. Melora Leigh, a two-time Oscar-winning actress, frustrated with her career and the pressures of raising her adoptive toddler, feels the seductive pull of kleptomania; Rebecca Rose, missing the robust sex life of her pre-motherhood days, begins a dangerous flirtation with a handsome local celebrity; Lizzie O'Donnell, a former lesbian (or "hasbian"), wonders why she is still drawn to women in spite of her sexy husband and adorable son; and Karen Bryan Shapiro finds herself split between two powerful obsessions: her four-year-old son's well-being and snagging the ultimate three-bedroom apartment in a well-maintained P.S. 321-zoned co-op building.As the women's paths intertwine (and sometimes crash), each must struggle to keep her man, her sanity, and her play dates.

Just dreadful

I gave it one star because Audible wouldn't let me give in zero. Everyone in this book is a horrible, self centered person. Even worse, this book has no end; it simply stops. Don't waste your time and money.

THIS BOOK IS HORRIBLE

This story has absolutely no plot and if I had to listen to one more celebrity name during the course of the book, I was going to scream. I am still trying to get through listening to this book and that is only because I am hoping the characters get killed off, that would be the perfect ending to this book.
