Ally Hughes Has Sex Sometimes: A Novel
For fans of the chick-lit genre, this strikes all the right chords. Ally Hughes Has Sex Sometimes is, at its heart, a very sweet, enjoyable love story. Ally is a single mom and a professor at Brown University when she spends an illicit weekend with Jake Bean. Unfortunately for Ally, Jake was a student in her class, and she has her job and her daughter to worry about. So when Jake makes clear his feelings for Ally, she pushes him away, unable to open herself to love despite how she feels. Lucky for her, she may have a second chance when she and Jake meet again 10 years later in her home; but this time he’s here as her daughter’s date.
The path of the story is a little unexpected, which was refreshing. I don’t think it follows the story line one would predict, given the synopsis. The plot is not what it seems so don’t judge this book by it’s jacket summary copy! All of the characters are likeable and the love story between Jake and Ally definitely has magic. The writing was funny and I appreciated that it tackled a more complicated, and otherwise tabooed relationship.
