Lyssa Harper should have warned divorced DILF du jour Harry Wilder before she invited him to meet the mommies of the Paradise Heights Women’s League Board. At least he brought cupcakes. Since taking the former Master-of-the-Universe turned stay-at-home single dad under her wing, Lyssa has been his domestic Sherpa, teaching him the ins and outs of life inside their gated community. She never dreamed her friends would bombard him with casseroles, leopard-print bikini briefs, and offers to rearrange his kitchen cabinets. But Harry’s presence soon stirs up trouble in paradise: if Harry and his wife, the neighborhood’s “perfect couple,” can call it quits, what does that mean for other so-called happy couples, like Lyssa and her husband, Ted? When Harry sets boundaries with his new fan club, he is exiled from the ladies’ clique. But Lyssa refuses to snub him. What she never expects is the explosive impact her ongoing friendship with Harry will have on her close-knit pals — and on her marriage. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 2/17/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. There was a point when I thought that someone was an antagonist even though he wasn't. It was a good, quick read during my Christmas Break. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yomara | 2/10/2014

    " It was pretty good and filled with some dramatics. The suburbs seem a little harsh! The ending was sort of predictable but still a good read. I read it very quickly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zari | 2/10/2014

    " This was good. I liked Brown's writing style and her humor. It was like reading a season of Desperate Housewives - similar story line, but including all of the wonderful additions you get when reading as opposed to watching. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Farah | 2/5/2014

    " Another chick lit that I didn't realize that it was one until I started reading it. I'm a chick and I don't understand why chicks like this crap. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristi Downs | 1/26/2014

    " Okay...I really, really enjoyed this book. Think Desperate Housewives meets Mean Girls meets Something Borrowed. I didn't give it 5 stars b/c I wasn't hanging on every word and i wasn't hooked until the middle of the book, but it was very entertaining and refreshing read. Super pleased with it, glad I own it, and will probably read over and over. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila Valenti | 1/20/2014

    " good, but predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/19/2014

    " It was a good read but very predictable... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 1/19/2014

    " I didn't like it as well as The Baby Planner, but it was a good and easy read. There are a lot of funny parts that I can relate to as a mom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 1/18/2014

    " This summer grab a copy of Josie Brown's novel "Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives." It is a near perfect beach read. Women who live in suburbia with their families will especially be able to relate. Fans of TV's Desperate Housewives will love these very desperate housewives and husbands. The plot is complex and the characters are many. You'll fall in love with househusband Harry as easily as Lyssa does. You'll marvel at the Coven and how disruptive they are. A very fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madison | 1/17/2014

    " Loved this book by Josie Brown! I like to call it Desperate Housewives in a book and recommend it to readers all the time. Fun read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyla | 1/3/2014

    " This book was recommended by Lisa Rinna on twitter (@lisarinna) Wish she had added a warning - this book is not suitable to read on the bus ;-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marisa | 1/1/2014

    " 3.5 stars. Similar to watching an episode of Desperate Housewives. Enjoyed the quote about marriage at the beginning of each chapter. The author's writing was real, funny, and insightful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 MELISSA | 12/25/2013

    " Very good book...funny at parts also..liked the writing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/9/2013

    " Eh. It was okay. Mostly fluff, but I still found myself interested in how the story would end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristi Johnson | 12/8/2013

    " This book took me a lot longer to read than it should have. It wasn't really what I thought it was going to be. Ending was the best part. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue Salazar | 9/2/2013

    " Good book, took me a bit to get into, but half way through I couldn't put it down. Interesting plot twists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 8/11/2013

    " Total chick lit, and oddly enthralling. A quick and enjoyable read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Janis Newberg rogers | 11/18/2012

    " Didn't finish it. Too much drama of the women only fighting. I can get that enough in real life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Libby | 10/20/2012

    " OMG! Loved it! It grabbed me from the first page. I could not put it down. I felt that I knew all these women, that I was Lyssa. Really fun and full of great twists. Do pick up! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashleigh | 10/11/2012

    " It took entirely too long for the story to really get good. It got to be a bit predictable as well. "
