Breaking the Rules Confessions of a Bad Girl by Catherine Townsend

Breaking the Rules Confessions of a Bad Girl


Breaking the Rules Confessions of a Bad Girl by Catherine Townsend

Cat has got it on with all sorts of guys and if it has taught her one thing it is this: forget conventional rules and follow your heart's desires. When she hits her late twenties people start hassling her to settle down. But she treats this pressure to find a soulmate as a great excuse to test-drive a load of hot men. While she satisfies her constant sexual hunger, she begins to wonder what her ultimate destiny is. Her love-life is a rollercoaster ride of hot sex and heartbreak. But is the true path to 'happy ever after' channelled through lifelong monogamy or unbridled hedonism?


'Phew!' * News of the World * 'A no-holds-barred account of Catherine's erotic adventures ... Lots of fun and very Sex and the City' * Closer * 'She's frank. She's funny. And she doesn't mind admitting she's filthy too.' * Independent * 'Sexy ... laugh-out-loud funny ... very Carrie Bradshaw: witty,bracing, packed with handy advice' * Observer Woman * 'Sexy, confident and brimming with attitude' * Cosmopolitan * Praise for Sleeping Around * : *'
