The Naughty Girls' Book Club by Sophie Hart

The Naughty Girls Book Club

A quaint suburb. A quiet little reading group. A very naughty reading list...Chicklit with a saucy twist, this is perfect for anyone looking for a slightly softer version of of E.L. James' 50 Shades of Grey. Estelle sets up a book group in order to increase custom to her struggling small town cafe, what follows is more scandalous than she could have ever imagined...As the first book club meeting flounders, Estelle suggests a spot of erotica to spice up the members lives - with trepidation the decision is accepted. Inspired by their sizzling reads, this group of shy suburban readers shake off their inhibitions and discover a new side to themselves with some tantalising results. Saucy and sexy chicklit fiction at its most seductive, this is perfect for fans of Jilly Cooper and Indigo Bloome.

With the publication and subsequent popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey and other Erotica titles I am sure that there will be book clubs popping up all over the country that will delve into this new popular genre of books for their book of the month and that is exactly what is set up by Estelle in her cafe when the local independent book shop over the road closes its door for the last time.
The book club was initially set up to bring more business into the cafe ran by Estelle, a single mum. The first book she chose was Tess of the D'Urbervilles, however it was not a popular choice. The next choice is 'Ten Sweet Lessons' which livens up the book club no end and the new angle is followed for subsequent meetings. 

I really enjoyed the book. It had a good story, with the members of the club all having their own stories, which we followed throughout the book.  The members were all women, of varying ages and backgrounds, except Reggie, a university student who was using the book club as the subject of his thesis, who began on the outside looking into the meetings, but soon became involved in the discussions and was a fully fledged book club member. 

I really enjoyed this book - I have read E L James' series and did enjoy it, and although I have read a couple of other books from the Erotica genre I still find myself preferring to read other genres and to be able to pick up a book which crosses a number of genres. It has a great storyline with added sexy scenes.

The books discussed in the book club are a mix of real books and made up titles and I have found myself researching the books to find out if they are available to read. I will be looking to find the titles to read myself where possible.

The book is more than a story about a book club. The characters all have their own lives and each develop throughout the book. I would love to have been a part of this book club and could see many of the members as potential friends in real life. It has been well written and I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

This book would make a perfect beach or holiday read, although be ready for the 'spicy' scenes which may make you blush! 

Thank you to the publishers, Avon, for sending me the book to review.
