What happens when one of the country's most popular identities goes from reading the news to being the news?
Olivia Law had always been the good girl. Great grades, perfect career, husband, house and hairdo. She'd learnt image was everything, so she refused to look below the surface of her life. When not at work her minutes were filled with causes, chairing boards and dining at fabulous restaurants with her equally fabulous husband, David. She kept up the Botox and blow-dries and worked hard.
It wasn't enough, but whenever doubt crept in she'd head to a pilates class or plan a renovation on her trophy house. Then she turned 45. Olivia wasn't prepared for David to leave. The fact that they hadn't had sex for two years should have triggered warning bells...it didn't.
In an attempt to fix her broken marriage Olivia exposed herself like never before. But when her confession goes viral, the husband, house and job disappear. The woman who once offered glamorous reassurance and a steady gaze is labelled a princess of perversion. Humiliated, defeated, facing 50 shades of failure, she's left wondering who the hell she really is.
Stripped bare, she abandons perfection...and something remarkable happens. Olivia Law just might get her sass back (and this time, it's the real thing).
The brilliant new novel from J. D. Barrett about breakups, breakdowns and breakthroughs. Batteries not included.

This book was a light, funny read. It had me laughing out loud while I was driving home. I'm sure some folks thought I was nuts!
