Book Review - Lux's Practical Erotica Adventure

Lux's Practical Erotica Adventure: A Tuesday Erotica Club Novel by Lisa Kovetz is a hysterically funny tale of Lux's hot pursuit of the 3 R's: relationships, real estate, and erotica

Welcome to the New York City of the Tuesday Erotica Club, in which four women from different worlds get together once a week to read their erotic fantasies and share their latest real-life adventures in sex, finance, and friendship.

Lux Fitzgerald grew up in a family more affected by incarceration rates than interest rates. But she's determined to blaze her own trail, and has gone deeply into debt to buy a neglected mansion to jump start her real estate empire. Surrounded by an old flame restoring the house, a hoodlum mortgage broker, and a gorgeous neighborhood fireman, Lux is destined to either drown in debt or catch fire with opportunities.

Lux isn't the only club member who's in over her head, but these women stick together in times of trouble— and anyone standing in their way better watch out.

This book is a like a perfect ice cream cone - it's delicious, it's smooth, it's crunchy and most of all, it's just plain fun! The erotic fantasies these 4 ladies dream up of are as varied and colorful as the ladies themselves and akin to sprinkles on top of that perfect cone I was just talking of. And at the core of this story is a staunch friendship that not only defines them but also keeps them going through some extremely tough times.

Kovetz writes in a light-hearted manner that belies the serious issues faced by her protagonists and yet is engaging enough to keep the reader turning page after page in quivering anticipation. Whether describing a stripper strutting her stuff or a lawyer spouting off legal mumbo-jumbo, Kovetz is in her element and manages to make the reader feel like they're actually there, watching, listening and experiencing!

Lux is the heroine, and what's not to like about this spunky woman?! She's determined to give Donald Trump a run for his money by investing in real estate and learning how to do it as she's doing it - now that takes guts! Especially when you consider her background and inexperience! How it all turns out in the end - with the loss of old loves and lives but gaining others - is very interesting to read about. Same is true for the other women.

Raunchy, spunky and entertaining as it is, I have to say readers will be better benefited by reading this book only after having read the first book in this series, The Tuesday Erotica Club, as it establishes the background for this story and relationships between the four women.

In short, a winner!
