Stark’s life is picture-perfect—she has a dream job as a magazine editor, a sexy doctor boyfriend, and a glamorous life in Manhattan. But behind her success, she can’t shake a deep sense of loneliness, so when her boyfriend proposes and offers her a completely new life in California, she decides to give it a try. But with her fiancé working long hours, M.J. is left to fend for herself in a suburban California beach town, with only the company of her elderly neighbor, Gloria.One day M.J.
receives a mysterious invitation in the mail and a copy of Prim: A Modern Woman’s Guide to Manners. She recognizes the book as an outdated classic, but when she opens it, she discovers that it’s actually a copy of Fear of Flying by Erica Jong and the invitation is to join a book club—one that only reads dirty books. Out of curiosity, M.J. goes to the meeting at a local bookstore, and discovers three other women who have also been selected by Gloria—who has suddenly left the country—to honor a fifty-year- old pact made by Gloria and three of her friends in the 1960s.
As these newfound friends bond over the latest erotic bestsellers, each woman re-evaluates not only her sex life, but all areas of her life. Inspired by the women in the novels they read—and notes passed down by the club’s original members—the women find that sometimes true friendship and some naughty inspiration are all you need to kickstart your life and find the courage to pursue your dreams.
