*About the Author* Award-winning journalist Alan Daniels was a daily newspaper reporter and editor in London, Sydney, Hong Kong and Vancouver. Married with children, he is currently working on his second novel.
This book has 3 outstanding qualities: humor, great characters and sex. The two main characters, Catherine and George, have humorous and sweet chemistry. Catherine and George belong to the same writing club. Their teacher/adviser basically calls George vanilla and dares him to go outside of his box and write racier stuff. Drawing from his adventures with his late wife George decides to find out if all women secretly like the same thing as his wife: spanking. In his quest and attempts at research George and Katherine’s path intersect in very interesting and “improbable” events. I love the concept of George’s book “Fly on the Wall”. His version of how historic love affairs “went down”, based on the Dr. Who series. Catherine’s tale is a bit racier and bumpy than George’s. She deals with abuse, scandal and finally finds a decent guy in a very unexpected place. This story made me laugh out loud at quite a few places. It was a great story, definitely worth the read.
