Publisher's Summary

Be Careful What You Tell Yourself
Jackie Baker likes to pretend. She pretends she's happily married to her handsome, successful husband. She pretends she's the perfect mother to her two beautiful children. She even pretends that her secret job as a phone-sex operator is noble and fulfilling.
But after years of pretending, Jackie's life is about to unravel. Her husband may be having an affair. Her mothering skills may be less than stellar, and her new client with the alluring voice is about to send her spiraling.
As the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur, Jackie Baker becomes trapped in a cycle of obsession and lies. Now, she either has to get her life back on track, or it will spin out of control forever.

Not recommended.

If you want to listen to a 33-year-old, stay at home mother of 2 complain and whine about how much she hates her privileged life and then literally goes crazy and is just shocked when she finds out a customer for her secret adult hotline telephone job turns out to be a 22-year-old kid using his father’s credit card and identity—- then by all means, this is the book for you. I had about 3 hours left and I just couldn’t stand her anymore. The story even tries to garner sympathy for her by throwing in some ridiculously timed family drama, but it didn’t work for me. I thought it would’ve at least been a lighthearted, juicy drama but it’s not. The summary is very appealing, but isn’t as interesting as it sounds at all.
