Sex and Vanity
- By Paige Petrone
Sex and Vanity, the latest book from Kevin Kwan, the author of the bestselling phenomenon Crazy Rich Asians, has hit every hot list and my audible books app! What a fun ‘listen,’ especially lounging around the pool. Being new to audible and listening to books I wasn’t sure what to expect but what a great way to spend time doing other things (driving or especially exercising!) while keeping entertained. If you’ve never tried it, I recommend it!
Sex and Vanity is just that! And I’m not kidding. Lots of sex and lots of vanity! It’s the tale of a young woman who finds herself torn between two men: the WASPY fiancé of her family’s dreams and the man she is desperately trying to avoid falling in love with. When Lucie first lays eyes on George in Capri, Italy, she instantly can’t stand him. But then … well … things change … and soon, Lucie is spinning a web of deceit that involves her family, her fiancé, the co-op board of her Fifth Avenue apartment building back in New York, and ultimately herself. Sex and Vanity is a truly modern love story and a brilliantly funny comedy of manners set between two cultures. Entertainment Weekly said, “Kevin Kwan’s new book is his most decadent yet.” Sex and Vanity is a fantastic escape and a great summer read and/or listen! And definitely decadent!
“Sex and Vanity” is available on Amazon.
