Pelvic Flaws Synopsis:
Pelvic Flaws, one woman’s struggle with wet knickers and sweaty boobs.
When one sneeze can ruin your day.
I’m Katie Grainger, I’m 45 years old, a divorced mother of three, slightly annoying at times, but always loveable, kids and I can wet myself at the drop of hat. Actually, it’s more like a sneeze or a cough than a drop of a hat, but whatever the reason, let’s just say I am forever grateful for the invention of the ultra-thin panty pad.
Do I have regrets in my life?
Yes, I do. I regret that my ex-husband, Carl, and I didn’t realise we’d grown apart sooner. I regret having a perm in 1993 – I looked like Roly the dog from Eastenders. I regret not trying more online dating when I first got divorced and I regret that my youngest, Charlie, feels torn between pleasing me and his dad. What I don’t regret is my bag breaking and spilling everything over the pizza place floor, the night Dex Michaels was in there ordering a 9inch meat feast.
Pelvic Flaws is the story of one woman’s struggle with hot sweats, mood swings and perilously poor pelvic floor muscles. It’s the story of Dex, who thinks all those things about Katie are funny and adorable. It’s the story of a romance that could turn into something big. It’s the story of what might be the love affair of the century, potentially being ruined by the baggage that neither of them knew existed.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
One of the best romcoms I’ve ever read! EVER! What a delightfully funny and heartwarming story. I connected with this book AND Katie in so many ways. I couldn’t stop laughing. If you love romcoms, I swear you will not be disappointed if you chose to read Pelvic Flaws. I can truly tell you that you are missing out if you don’t check out this book. The author is incredibly talented with writing comedy, the pace was fast and when I turned the last page, I realized I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to Katie, Dex and all the entertaining, secondary characters.
Katie is a divorced mother of three, dealing with the changes of being single like a champ. While she was disappointed that her marriage didn’t last, she wasn’t heartbroken. Katie is also dealing with all the things women deal with at her age. Being in her late forties, Katie is fairly content with her life. The truth is, falling in love again isn’t even on her radar. I absolutely adored Katie and completely understood what she was going through. As a woman around Katie’s age, I totally sympathize with her.
When Katie meets Dex for the first time, it’s because she drops her purse on the floor of a local pizzeria and the embarrassing contents roll under the table where Dex is seated. Dex was a great hero. After helping Katie retrieve her unmentionables, he knows immediately that she is different from most of the women he knows. Katie is a breath of fresh air with a great sense of humor.
Between Dex and Katie, I couldn’t stop laughing. He was such a gentleman at the times he could have unintentionally hurt her feelings. Of course, when they meet again, Katie is in a situation. Dex comes to her rescue and from that point on, they slowly build a relationship. Katie is wary to move too fast because she has her kids to think about. Of course, Dex is hard to resist.
This book has everything. Fun, humor, plenty of sexy times and even some surprises that turned out to be very serious. I won’t elaborate because you should read this book for yourself. I can say, just sitting here writing this review, I want to reread this book right now. I truly loved it that much!
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it! 🙂
