Shelfari edited the description of Something On the Side Monday, August 3, 2009.
Carl Weber--the New York Times bestselling author of The First Lady and So You Call Yourself a Man --represents with a straight-up novel about friendship and love, sex and betrayal, and how getting some on the side is never as simple as it seems... Meet Tammy, Egypt, Isis, Nikki, Coco, and Tiny--the bodacious women of the Big Girls Book Club. There's only one rule to being a member. You must be at least a size 14... BGBC president Tammy loves everything about her life--her two kids, her fierce friends, her BMW. She especially loves taking care of business for her husband, Tim, for whom she'd do anything. This year, she intends to top all his past birthdays by having a threesome with her best friend, Egypt. Now, if only Egypt will agree to grant them this very special favor... Isis's boyfriend, Tony, romances her every chance he gets--and he knows how to turn up the heat, which makes Isis willing to lay down and die for him. That is until a man from her past steps back into her life--with only one goal in mind: win back the woman he's never been able to forget. But not every BGBC member is lucky with men. Once upon a time, single mom Nikki would have made love to her man in the middle of Times Square for the entire country to see. Now that he's her ex, it takes everything she has not to kill him (or let her roommate, Tiny, do it for her), especially since he has a way of disappointing their son every chance he gets--and then making her look like the bad guy. And then there's hot-to-trot Coco Brown, who has a habit of messing around with married men. It doesn't bother her, as long as they don't try to deny it. But now that she's hooked up with a man who makes his living being every woman's fantasy, all she cares about is making sure he doesn't stray. As insatiable about books as they are about love--or lust--these friends are about to discover how tough it is to keep it real when they all have Something on the Side.
