The List by Joanna Bolouri
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Written in first-person diary form, a sort of Bridget Jones/50 Shades of Grey cross where 30-something girl, Phoebe, makes a New Year resolution ‘list’ of ten sexual encounters she would like to explore: dogging, voyeurism, bondage and the like. With the help of Lucy (great character) she finds a friend from college to accept the challenge and so Oliver becomes her ‘fuck buddy’. You are then in the ‘will they/won’t they’ trap as they start to tick off the list. The outcome is pretty obvious but it’s good fun getting there.

Synopsis

The List by Joanna Bolouri

Phoebe Henderson may be single but she sure doesn't feel fabulous. It's been a year since she found her boyfriend Alex in bed with another woman, and multiple cases of wine and extensive relationship analysis with best friend Lucy have done nothing to help. Faced with a new year but no new love, Phoebe concocts a different kind of resolution. The List: ten things she's always wanted to do in bed but has never had the chance (or the courage!) to try. A bucket list for between the sheets. One year of pleasure, no strings attached. Simple, right? Factor in meddlesome colleagues, friends with benefits, getting frisky al fresco and maybe, possibly, true love and Phoebe's got her work cut out for her.
