The 1967 Summer of Love never ended in the City by the Bay. It just morphed into the “play ethic” of the hyper-rich and upwardly mobile.
Introducing Aimée, a San Franciscan who plays by the rules – hooks up, no strings attached – until her bourgeois world collapses. Desperate, she must find a husband. A Mr. Half-Right will do, so long as he provides her financial security again. Matador, the pharmaceutical magnate who concocts the newly-launched female libido drug, Intomesee, exceeds all her expectations. His st, pharma-drugs give her passionate highs, but does she possess the je ne sais quoi to intoxicate him in the city, designer built for free love?
Maha is a proud American, Erwin is a flying Dutchman. We hooked-up during an overland safari across the heart of Africa. When the tour ended, we got hitched. Disillusioned with our careers in finance and science, we sold two of our homes and started to travel again. Five years later, we’re still possessed by an unrelenting wanderlust, lugging around our huuuuge suitcases wherever we go. Cape Town. Rome. San Francisco. Ubud.
The plot is quite solid and it's easy to follow the story. I had a hard time understanding Aimée, she is definitely not one of my favorite characters. She sounded a bit dramatic or anxious, I really don't know but there was something about her I didn't like.
The book has a good writing style, it has smart dialogues and the authors managed to create a different kind of chick-lit book. I also have to add that the book has a strong sexual component, there were many graphic scenes which also made the book a bit better.
