A fresh, funny, audacious debut novel about a Bridget Jones-like something who discovers that she may have simply been looking for love - and, ahem, pleasure - in all the wrong places aka: from men. Julia hasn't had sex in three years. Her roommate has a boyfriend - and their sex noises are audible through the walls, maybe even throughout the neighborhood.
Not to mention, she's treading water in a dead-end job, her know-it-all therapist gives her advice she doesn't ask for, and the men she is surrounded by are, to be polite, subpar. So when Julia gets invited to a warehouse party in a part of town where "trendy people who have lots of sex might go on a Friday night" - she readily accepts.
Thus empowered, she goes to a gay bar and ends up meeting another woman who ends up becoming her girlfriend-- but this girlfriend, Sam, has dark tastes and doesn't quite know where to draw the line when it comes to control. I wanted to love this book but for the most part, it was really dull. Julia wasn't a very interesting protagonist. Bridget Jones was funny and self-aware and relatable, whereas Julia didn't have much in the way of personality. She was the portrait of a victim, and everything that happened to her kind of made it feel like she a vehicle to propel the storyline through this morality tale of an emotionally abusive and controlling relationship.

The foreshadowing of the toxic relationship was well done and at first, I wasn't sure which tack this book was going to take. I wish I could give this book a higher rating, but I just didn't really enjoy it that much and didn't love the writing at all. I wish Julia had been given more of a personality and that we had a better sense of her life beyond her sex life, but it is what it is. Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review! View all 3 comments. This is a hilarious book with a somewhat dirty sex description in every chapter.
Beware of the inevitable tears at the end, though! Thank you NetGalley for this one-night-stand page-turner adventure in exchange for my honest review. Funny, crude and startlingly open, this is a contemporary novel about a young woman named Julia discovering her sexuality which happens surprisingly quickly and beginning a life as a queer woman. But then, as you get further through the book, you lose the 'modern Bridget Jones' vibe and it becomes darker, more uncomfortab I was very kindly given an e-arc of this book through Netgalley and HarperCollins UK.
But then, as you get further through the book, you lose the 'modern Bridget Jones' vibe and it becomes darker, more uncomfortable and increasingly more volatile. There are a lot of issues with this book. I understand that the author herself is queer, but there are some serious ignorances in this story, particularly towards BDSM. There's one instance where Julia's partner forces into a rape-fantasy scenario without asking for her explicit consent, even before hand.
The language is coded, suggesting 'You'll like it' or 'You want to do it', and that made me feel ridiculously uncomfortable. It often felt closer to Fifty Shades horror than genuine SM work. Also, the main characters are utter trash. There's unlikeable, and then there's plain psychopathic. Sam, the 'girlfriend', repeatedly manipulates Julia, sexually, verbally and emotionally. At the end of the book, she even threatens to kill herself. There's no subtlety to this book at all, and you just feel angry instead of any other emotion. Some positives: it's genuinely funny. I think there is potential, but it was being dark for the sake of being controversial.
I can see how people were turned off by this book and couldn't read it. It should probably come with a huge trigger warning slapped across the front of the cover. Also this book is way, way, way too cavalier about fisting.

While at first it started lighter, with very Bridget Jones-esque dry wit about dating life in London but about coming out as a lesbian , the tone went darker as it explored Julia's first serious relationship with a woman.
This girlfriend turns out to be controlling and emotionally abusive. It's painful to watch Julia go through this, which is a testament to Davies' writing. I also loved the friends, family, and job portions of the book. It does have an HFN en 4. It does have an HFN ending, which I appreciate; I wished that portion was a little stretched out into the last sections of the book, I wanted more of the good things in her life once she got shit sorted out. This book had me laughing out loud throughout. Highly recommended! View 1 comment.

She lives in London but has not had sex for 3 years. Julia decides her dry patch has lasted for too long and jumps In at the Deep End to have some fun in her life. I was really attracted to the cover of this book. It shows two red chilli peppers arranged together to let the reader imagine they were labia.
