Middle-aged minivan moms, Anna Jones and Jennifer Clarke began their friendship back in college. These days, they struggle with the daily demands of parenthood, unhappy marriages, and unfulfilled dreams of being professional writers. During a weekly coffee date in their suburban neighborhood, their conversation turns from the standard husband and children anecdotes to writing erotic novels.
Between soccer games and school carpool, the wannabe authors each write a dirty chapter but discover steamy bedroom scenes escape their grasp. Their sexless marriages offer no inspiration, so in the name of “research,” they embark on a two-month-long carnal adventure.
Salsa dancing, a trip to Italy, and a hot barista get words flowing on the page, but while suburbia isn’t what it used to be, neither are their lives at home…or their friendship. Will Anna and Jennifer find what they’re after or wish they’d never gone looking?
