Jenny Rafter wakes up one bright Monday morning with a boyfriend beside her and a job to look forward to.

Tepid telling of a mediocre story

Firstly it seems the narrator was in such a rush to finish speaking that she forgot to make the reading of interest to the listener. A monotonal performance, lacking in critical pauses between dialogue to distinguish speakers, and with no difference in voice between characters and narration. A rushed, tepid performance.
The story itself can be considered as a basic Marion Keynes plot, but without any subplots, but with more descriptive sex scenes and even less plot. The characters seemingly sketched in only one dimension (if such a thing were possible). No style or flair to the writing, although at times with such poor narration it was difficult to tell.

It scratches an itch for sex scenes, but does little else.
