After attending three new mom groups, only to be banned for eating Cheetos (not organic!) and uttering the occasional swear word, Sadie Walker questions why she is trying so hard to fit in. While sitting in another dingy community center playroom full of squealing babies and new moms enthusiastically discussing homemade organic baby food, Sadie meets John, a handsome, vivacious dad. They quickly form a friendship and Sadie finally finds an adult outlet. John soon becomes a lifeline and she looks to him for advice and support, and confides in him about her strained marriage and career as a copywriter. Sadie begins to have sexual fantasies about John. Those fantasies turn into opportunity when he tells her he’s in an open marriage. As Sadie contemplates how far is too far in regards to her friendship with John, she must also question herself, her marriage, and her life. Will swinging with John improve that life, or destroy it?
My Book Review:
Swings by Corbin Lewars is an enjoyable women's fiction story that follows the personal journey of Sadie Walker as she tries to find her way as a new mom while dealing with an unhappy marriage.
As a new mom, Sadie is struggling with finding a balance in her tension filled marriage while trying to take care of her newborn son Spence with little help from her uninterested husband Kyle. She tries several Mommy and Me groups looking to make friends with people who are going through the same trials and tribulations, but finds a lot of Super Mommies ... that is until she joins a new group and meets a dad named John. A friendship quickly blossoms between Sadie and John, but when the spark of attraction ignites between them, Sadie has to figure out what she wants in her life.
Author Corbon Lewars weaves an intriguing tale that delves into the dynamics of a traditional marriage and its issues, open marriage (swinging and polyamorous relationships), man-woman friendship, and dealing with the trials and tribulations of being a new parent. Written with a mixture of humor and reality, it isn't hard for the reader to empathize with Sadie's dilemma when it comes to her unfulfilling and strained marriage, the struggles of finding her way as a new mom, and getting the enticing attraction and attention from another man. I really enjoyed following Sadie's journey, it kept me engaged and wondering what decisions she would make, and watching her grow as she went through the challenging process was like a breath of fresh air.
