Review
Forty-nine-year-old Olivia Charles has had her fair share of bumps. After a messy divorce from her husband of 23 years and a battle with breast cancer, she is convinced that her days of love (and lust) are over. Her friends, however, have very different plans and encourage Livia to create a "Fuck-It List" of fantasies, with the intention of bringing two of them to life. Skeptical Livia approaches the task with hesitation but soon finds herself engaging in thrilling sex acts that she'd only pursued in her wildest dreams, with a vibrant new sense of confidence to match. Livia isn't the only one exploring new boundaries; her close friend Jasi, a self-proclaimed wild child, grapples with her own issues of identity and commitment to what, or who, will truly make her happy. Will both women realize that life is even better when lived outside their comfort zone? VERDICT Though described as erotica for "women of a certain age," this novel features language that can be surprisingly juvenile. Odd erotic euphemisms abound, to the point of hindering the effect of sex scenes. While this is a consistent issue throughout the text, it is tempered by the portrayal of Davis's strong, likable characters. Many readers will be able to relate to Livia's and Jasi's struggles with themselves and their relationships. There's a fair bit of sexual variety explored in terms of kinks, including threesomes, sex toys, and girl-on-girl. Overall, this is a fun, sexy novel, if one can get past the terminology. Recommended for fans of Davis's other works (Dare To Be Seduced; Dare To Be Tempted ) and those looking for something a bit outside predictable erotic fare. --Ashleigh Williams (Reviewed January 1, 2014) (Library Journal, vol 139, issue 1, p85)
