REVIEW for Lux's Practical Erotica Adventure

Thank you Danielle at Sourcebooks Inc. for kindly sending me this book!
TITLE: Lux's Practical Erotica Aventure
AUTHOR: Lisa Beth Kovetz
GENRE: Chick lit
RATING: 3 Stars
I believe that there is another book in this series, which would explain why I had a few problems oritenting myself in the first few pages of this novel, however, once I had everyone sorted out, I was okay.
First off, I have to say that I do not read erotica, but what attracted me to this book is the fact that it IS a chick lit book - I am soooo there. Author Lisa Beth Kovetz has written a good novel about 4 women, who for the most part, are quite different and probably would not necessarily come together all that well - except that they share a common thread - the love of erotica novels. I have often found, myself, with my own friends that we always end up sharing a common thread, in my case its the love of reading and blogging about it, so I was totally there with the author and her four characters.
This story, while featuring 4 women -does focus on one in particular - Lux who is the de facto leaader of the group and who also has the most interesting backstory/lifestory within the book. Although I did enjoy reading the experiences of all the women since all of them live quite different lives - which somehow end up sharing the same type of problems - this is something else that always amazes me about women and friendship -no matter how different we are - we share common problems and are there for each other.
Anyway, back to the storyline. For those who may be concerned about the "erotica" part of this book - don't be - this type of erotica is more of the Fabio - pirates/damsels in distress type, which does not really appeal to me but does to the "Tuesday Erotica Club". There are alot of these type of entries into the book and I ended up skipping over many of them - they kind of slowed the story down a little.
Overall, this was a good read because a) its a good chick lit and b) its a wonderful story of friendship and "can do" attitude. I enjoyed it.

I almost skipped this review because I don't read erotica either. I'm not sure they chose the greatest title for the book.
