About the Book
For seven years, Delaine Moore devoted herself to being the perfect wife and stay-at-home mom. She prided herself on putting her family’s needs before her own, including keeping her husband happy with plenty of sex—even though her own sex drive was completely nonexistent. Then, one day, she finds out about his infidelities, and suddenly she finds herself in a new role: 37 years old, mother of three … and going through a divorce. In the midst of this emotional turmoil, Moore discovers that her long-dormant libido has suddenly come alive—and, surprising even herself, she decides to listen to what it’s saying.
The Secret Sex Life of a Single Mom is the funny and empowering story of the physical and spiritual self-discovery that results from Moore’s sexual awakening. Connecting with a fiery, daring side of her personality that has been subsumed by motherhood and marriage, Moore tries out everything from sex clubs and young gigolos to bondage and multi-partner sex—testing her limits, reclaiming her body, and taking control of her life along the way. More than the story of a woman’s breaking and remaking after divorce, The Secret Sex Life of a Single Mom is a humorous, thoughtful exploration of what it means to be a mother and a sexual being, and a reminder that when life slams you down, a little fire won’t burn you—it will awaken you.
