Sometimes you need a book that doesn’t require a lot thinking, a book that isn’t too serious and at times actually makes you laugh out loud – enter Jenny McCarthy’s newest novel, “Love, Lust and Faking It“. A humorous novel filled with an inside look at Jenny McCarthy’s views of sex, lust and romance.
Her novel is divided up into three consecutive parts, love, lust and faking it. Each chapter giving a little insight about the experiences Jenny has experienced over the years. She refuses to even touch on the topic of her relationship with the famous Jim Carrey, which was a tad disappointing, because I was hoping for a little gossip, but no go. She may hold back on going into any details when it comes to her last relationship, but that’s about all she holds back. She shares just about every other experience she’s faced over the years. Her sexual experiences are discussed, her trip to the Playboy headquarters and her horrific experience when she had breast implants.
I didn’t really follow the sense of direction the book was taking, but I definitely chuckled many times. She often refers to her Twitter account for advice from her fans about their sexual/life experiences. If the cover is any indication of her addiction to technology (AKA Twitter) then I think you see what I’m saying.
I’ve never read Jenny McCarthy before, but my understanding is that her books deal with parenting and her experience with raising a child who autism, this book is a far cry from those topics, but more her advice on relationships and sex. She approaches the topics with a definite sense of humor and the novel reminded me of Chelsea Handler novels.
A good read if you’re looking for a laugh.
