Summary

A “hauntingly disarming” novel of a troubled woman obsessed with being the perfect wife and lover by the international bestselling author of Wetlands (Bust).Charlotte Roche’s scandalous first novel, Wetlands, was an international phenomenon—a sexually and hygienically explicit tale of a young woman’s life that sold over two million copies. Her second novel, Wrecked, is just as raw and powerful as it deals not only with sex, but also with death, fidelity, feminism, and the question of what is expected from a twenty-first-century wife and mother.“It’s easier to give a blow job than to make coffee.” That’s what Elizabeth Kiehl thinks to herself after a lengthy and inventive bout of sex with her husband Georg. Elizabeth goes to great efforts to pleasure her husband and to be a good mother to their seven-year-old daughter. But her domestic perfectionism hides a tragic rift in her psyche—the result of a terrible accident she keeps locked away in her past. As a result, Elizabeth’s relationship with Georg is rather unusual: most married couples wouldn’t frequent the local brothel for threesomes while their daughter is at school.“Wrecked is likely to become a cult classic, American Psycho by way of Catherine Millet, as Roche places domestic sex at the forefront of contemporary erotic culture.” —Financial Times

    From internationally bestselling author Nikki Gemmell comes a tantalizing story of love within marriage—and alongside it. 
    Under her Chanel suit and designer lingerie, Connie Carven is no longer the typical banker's wife. When Cliff's horrible skiing accident shifts the balance of their relationship, Connie becomes a willing submissive to her husband's every desire. Cliff is eager to explore new, and troubling, avenues of passion. Connie, ever the dutiful wife, follows wherever he leads. While at first she enjoys a perverse sense of freedom within the ever-tightening bonds of her marriage, Cliff's dark desires soon consume her entirely. She finds herself surrendering to an act that will forever remind her that she belongs to her husband alone—to be unlocked only by him, whenever he pleases. 
    But it is also this act that awakens Connie from the numbness that has taken over her life. And when she encounters someone new in the communal garden of her Notting Hill home, she discovers the thrill of true intimacy . . . and the price of risking everything for it. 
    The author of the bestselling phenomenon The Bride Stripped Bare and the exquisite With My Body, Nikki Gemmell brings erotic writing into the twenty-first century. In I Take You she looks to the classic Lady Chatterley's Lover for inspiration, reimagining D. H. Lawrence's celebrated tale as a brutally honest and deeply sensual modern love story.

    "Hey Stace. Take a look at this. It’s right up your alley."I glanced up from my book at my roommate Emma, who was holding a newspaper. "What is it?"She scanned the paper. "This daycare wants a pre-k teacher for their two-year-old class. This has your name all over it."I wrinkled my nose. "Um no thanks.""I thought that you wanted to work in childcare.""Nooooo, I want to work with children."Emma frowned. "Okay. Isn’t teaching the same thing?""Nope." I looked over at her. "I don’t want to have a whole group of ankle biters. I want a nanny job. Preferably, a live in nanny position. That would be better."Emma spread her arms. "How cool would that be to have your own little class? They would be so cute. And-""Then you do it," I said, shaking my head. "I don’t have those types of aspirations.""Then what is it that you want?"I sighed. "Chelsea got a job as a nanny. Remember? She got to travel with the family on vacations. Had her own room and access to their kitchen and pool. And she got paid well. Very well.""Yeah but the parents were both like famous surgeons or something.""True. But that’s what I want."Emma tossed the paper in our recycling bin. "You know gigs like that come once in a lifetime. She got lucky."I snorted. "I'll just be honest. I want to make a lot of money without expending a lot of energy.""That’s everybody’s dream," Emma said, opening her book. "But some of us have to study. We’re not all born with good looks and daddy’s credit card."An Author's Republic audio production.
