Review by Fern

Hana, Paige, Connie and Pepper form a lasting bond at Dempster Media, gathering in the break room for tea and toast. When Pepper leaves the company, the girls add a new venue - Paige's cottage in the woods - where, over cocktails and gossip, the four friends trade secrets and sex tips.

Pepper abandons her domestic life, restlessly flitting from man to man looking for the perfect balance of sex and compatibility. Will she find it, or was it always right in front of her?

Sweet, sexy Connie's infinite patience can't save her when her jealous husband leaves her for another woman. Now single, she attempts to relocate her sensuality with a hunky handyman.

Paige is the earth mother, sprinkling snippets of advice like herbs on a salad. Married to her high school sweetheart, she seems to have the perfect life. But she carries her own secrets...

Small-town Hana tests her sexual boundaries with hot editor Adam, but she gets more than she bargained for. When he asks her to experiment with BDSM, she panics and calls off the relationship, setting off a chain of catastrophic events that brings the four women closer than ever.

Sexy, hilarious, and wise, The Toast Bitches is erotic chick lit at its finest!
When I first saw the title, The Toast Bitches, I knew this story would be something different. And I’m happy to say, I was right. The moniker refers to four friends that prefer to have toast and tea together during breaks at their place of employment. During this time they share, they rant, and they gossip. United by friendship, each is similar, yet different.

You have the youthful Hana, a woman that’s got a yen for the gorgeous but elusive Adam who isn’t what he seems. The saucy Pepper, a woman that has left behind domestic bliss for her unrealized version of happiness. The soft spoken Corinne, whose overly possessive husband is having an affair that ends their marriage. And the nurturer Paige, whose portrayed happy marriage isn’t as blissful at it seems. As time goes along, all of the individual stories will come together, with Hana’s taking center stage.

The most wonderful thing about this story is that author Sandra Cormier has given all of the characters equal page time. Each Toast Bitch represents an issue women face at some point in their lives–blind attraction, a bad marriage, a skeleton in the closet, the need to branch out even when what you want is directly in front of you–providing something everyone can relate to. It was impossible to decide which heroine I loved most because they were all unique.

I loved The Toast Bitches, and finished the story in one sitting. Give it a read. I’m sure you’ll love it as well.
