Lyssa Harper should have warned divorced DILF du jour Harry Wilder before she invited him to meet the mommies of the Paradise Heights Women’s League Board. At least he brought cupcakes. Since taking the former Master-of-the-Universe turned stay-at-home-single-dad under her wing, Lyssa has been his domestic Sherpa, teaching him the ins and outs of life inside their gated community. She never dreamed her friends would bombard him with casseroles, leopard-print bikini briefs, and offers to rearrange his kitchen cabinets.
But Harry’s presence soon stirs up trouble in paradise: if Harry and his wife, the neighborhood’s "perfect couple", can call it quits, what does that mean for other so-called happy couples, like Lyssa and her husband, Ted?
When Harry sets boundaries with his new fan club, he is exiled from the ladies’ clique. But Lyssa refuses to snub him. What she never expects is the explosive impact her ongoing friendship with Harry will have on her close-knit pals - and on her marriage.

Suburbia on steriods
There are many elements in this story that will resonate with quite a few people. Josie Brown absolutely nails suburban living!
This listen was so fun with a few emotional highs and lows. It showed people at their absolute pettiness as well as those who thrive on adversity. Lyssa, the main female character, was trying to play by the rules but then comes Harry, and disruptions ensue.
I loved the narrator for this book as well. Most of the story was light and easy listening but when it called for more intensity, the narrator delivered that as well.
All in all, a great listen from start to finish.
