Dora Evans is annoyed that her family are ignoring her while she’s in bed ill. To teach them what life would be like without her she absconds on a weeks break to learn how to play tennis. Partner Tim has had enough of Dora’s behaviour and to the surprise of daughter Camille and son Tyler, refuses to bring her home.

As the week goes on and tempers settle, Dora decides to read up on being a more submissive housewife and how to allow Tim to make the choices. In the meantime, Tim reads Dora’s Alpha books to see what her ideal man would be.
When Tim does collect his wife the Alpha meets the Submissive woman. Will they continue to make a great team or is this match about to end?

One way or another Tim’s going to need New Balls Please.

Favorite Quotes:

“I know, but she gets me to do things and afterwards I’m wondering how she did it… It’s some form of brainwashing.”

“I think Miranda buys books rather than compulsively eats.  At thirty-eight, she’s divorced, and I guess it was books, food or cats and books won.”

“‘How long have you been together?’ ‘Almost thirty years.’  ‘Christ you don’t get that for murder,’”

“This is the holy grail.  This is what women really want… Of course they’re grown up fairy tales.  Do you see many suited and booted billionaires coming in here?”

“He takes a seat, and his legs splay apart in a wide-legged stance.  You know like some men do on the bus?  As if their package needs DHL heavy delivery options.”

My Review:

More bawdy and irreverent humor from the comically gifted Andie M. Long.  She is one of my favorite guilty pleasures.  I smirked and snorted more than a few times during this fun and quick read with mom Dora tossing a full blown tantrum and running off with the savings for an expensive vacation.  Her impetuous behavior, amusing shenanigans, and curious experiments were more than entertaining.  Poor Tim tries to make improvements on his end by taking cues from the Fifty Shades of alpha moves, with confusing results.  I cannot wait to see what Ms. Long dreams up with next.
