TOM AND HEATHER WELLESLEY by John Stag Hanson – Genre: Ribald Humor/Novel
Sexy social dramedy spring-boarded by an L.A.

Here, a nice-but-boring, out-of-shape family couple in their thirties whose intimacy and excitement have waned explore a culture of their own making, not knowing in the beginning that it is already a nearly-worldwide online phenomenon. This aside, in the beginning Heather Wellesley faces a serious learning curve as her seduction techniques with other men meet, ironically, with varying degrees of (initial) failure.
