9780060545574: Sharing Sean: A Novel

Sharing Sean is a fabulously entertaining, and comedic debut novel in which four women in their late thirties–with no time, or desire for a full time relationship–hatch a plan to "share" a man.

Not all women read bridal magazines, shop for dates on the internet, and covet the letters M., R., and S.. Some women prefer their baggage to be the purse variety and aren't seeking love or even fidelity–just a man who is willing to play by her rules. In the smart, wry, entertaining debut novel, Sharing Sean, Frances Pye introduces four such women in their late thirties–with no time, or desire for a committed relationship–and the unintended consequences that result when they hatch a bold plan to share one Mr. Right.

Singles Lily, Terry, Jules and Mara meet for Sunday brunch at least once a month to bemoan the lack of a man who'll meet their individual needs. Lily longs for two or three nights a week of uncomplicated–but passionate–sex; Terry, wants a stand–in father figure for her teenage son; Jules is looking for some no–strings–attached–sperm to fulfil her dream of becoming a parent; and Mara, a widow, needs just enough intrigue to help her begin to let go of the bittersweet memories of her deceased husband.

They're each equally frustrated until Sean comes into Lily's life. The owner of a small construction company, Sean is great–looking and in bed. Initially he even agrees to Lily's terms for a relationship. But ultimately, he is left longing for more than just sex, and when he presses her for a bigger commitment, Lily dumps him. But over a long Sunday brunch, it becomes clear that Sean could give each of them exactly what they need. So, Lily decides the best solution for all is to share him! Audacious and unconventional, their plan is downright scandalous–and all the more brilliant, if they can pull it off without Sean's knowledge.

Trouble being, even though these resourceful women think they can offer him everything he wants: sex; admiration; friendship; children–sometimes a man just doesn't want to be the object of so many desires..or hidden agendas!

About the Author:

Frances Pye is a writer and journalist. Currently, she lives in London with her husband, whom she would be reluctant to share. Sharing Sean is her first novel.

From Booklist:

What if four thirtysomething women in London decide that they're through with hoping for a committed relationship and that they'll use men only for their own selfish purposes? That's the premise of former Hollywood movie executive Pye's entertaining debut novel. One of the women, Lily, a writer and overnight sitcom star, hopes only for sex, but the others' needs are less carnal. Jules wants someone to father the child her two-timing ex never gave her; Mara needs a handyman to fix up her house so that her ex in-laws will get off her back; and Terry hopes to provide her teenage son with a decent male role model. Enter Sean Grainger, a strapping real estate developer who just might fit the bill--make that ALL the bills. As the women conspire to keep from Sean their plan to share him, he is dealing with his own trauma--to recover his sons, who have gone missing. Despite the conniving plan and the characters' depressing problems, this "Sex and the City goes London" is chatty, catty, and downright fun. Mary Frances Wilkens
