The world’s sexiest bucket list.

After emerging from a loveless marriage, Cat realizes hers is a life half-lived. What’s a recently-single woman in the prime of her life to do? Have her first ever one night stand. But her experience leads her to more than just an evening of pleasure. Cat has a revelation: she’s sick of being a good girl. It’s time for this Cat to take a walk on the wild side.

Cat pledges to try 30 different sexual experiences in the next 30 days, before she turns 30. Her list sends her on a journey that will lead to indescribable pleasures and some risky situations, and Cat will learn more about herself than she ever thought possible. Most unexpected of all, she may even find love.

Do you dare take a peek at her list?




30 Lays in 30 Days is not your typical love story, romance. So if you’re looking for something completely straightforward in that genre, this book is not for you. This book, while it is a love story, it -does- have a happily ever after… It is also a story of self discovery for our heroine, Cat, though. While the book is well written, and peppered here and there with things that will make you burst out laughing, it will also run you through a gauntlet of emotions.

I’m not exactly sure how I would describe Cat. She’s goofy, sweet, she has her absolute hilarious moments, but she’s also on a mission to find herself. Recently divorced from a man who decided that she was holding him back from living -his- life, She’s out to do all the things she didn’t get to do in her twenty’s, and all before her thirtieth birthday. Insane sexcapades ensue.

Our hero comes in the form of a man named Jackson that she randomly meets up with in a club. Throwing caution to the wind, she decides to hook up with him. It ends up being the best sex of her life, according to Cat, and it’s what actually sparks her mission. Spencer is sexy, a hard worker, and totally supportive of Cat’s plan. He goes out of her way to help her put it in motion and all the while falls more-and-more in love with her.

“Seriously! You, me, sex?” I pointed to each of us, then performed an embarrassing mime. It was meant to be the two of us, entangled in a hot embrace. Instead, it looked more like I was channeling mating hippos. So smooth, Cat.”

Now then, as I did mention, this isn’t your typical romance. I swung drastically between laughing, bemusement, befuddlement, confusion, discombobulation, literal disgust, and yet somehow, I loved the actual story here of a woman finding herself. I may not agree with how she went about it, but to each their own. I loved the characters, their depth, their emotions and so forth. Would I recommend this book to the typical romance reader? No, I definitely would not. I would however, recommend it to anyone wanting to try something new book wise.


If you can’t handle a heroine that sleeps with other men, this book is not for you. Also throw in a great deal of other things like F/F, menage, group mirror sex, scenes that border on assault before our wonderful hero puts his foot down… just to name a few, you’ll want to stay far far away from this book.
