Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Sensitive writer tackles sex! This is the tale of two couples, 30-something, beautiful, successful, both with 8-year old daughters and a bit bored, frustrated with life. They become friends, in and out of each other’s houses, dinners etc and soon start indulging in sex games – all graphically described. This is fine until one, Rob, invites Mia, the wife of the other couple, round and things get out of hand. All their lives then begin to fall apart resulting in tragic consequences.

If you like Tess Stimson you might also like to read books by Polly Williams, Joanna Trollope and Amanda Brookfield.

Synopsis

An Open Marriage by Tess Stimson

When you abandon the rules, can you ever go back? Mia Allen has never quite adjusted to living in England. She misses her friends in the States and feels restrained by small-town family life near Oxford. Her husband Kit, on the other hand, loves the sense of community here and his job as a school teacher in a private school. Like Mia, Kit's boss Charlie is also looking for more excitement in her life. Her marriage to emotionally-distant Rob has left her frustrated and yearning for more. So when she and Rob are invited to dinner with Mia and Kit, she jumps at the chance to make new friends. One evening, the increasing attraction between all of them moves up a notch, and it's not long before the seductive highs of these new friendships lead to desperate lows. Can any of their relationships survive this unconventional arrangement?
