Love, Lust, & Faking It [Review]

256 Pages
Published 28 Sept 2012


In Belly Laughs, Jenny McCarthy told you what you could really expect when you're expecting; in Baby Laughs and Life Laughs, she gave you the unfiltered ups and downs of motherhood and marriage. Now in Love, Lust, and Faking It, the inveterate truth-teller turns the lights on for a funny, often wise, and no-holds-barred look at the essence of relationships: love and sex.
McCarthy talks about finding first love and dealing with heartbreak; the importance of playing doctor and other nice and naughty fantasies; becoming a Playboy Miss October; why women are master manipulators; the virtues of sex with the lights off; the power of a "loving no," and so much more.
Love, Lust, and Faking It takes on a subject the sex symbol, mother, television star, comedian, and divorc√Če can be trusted to examine with nothing but unvarnished honesty and outrageous humor.

My Thoughts:
I've always found Jenny really fascinating and wanted to read all of her books. She's a riot on any show I've seen her on. I kind of went in expecting Chelsea Handler. It wasn't really Chelsea. It was okay, not bad, not horrible. There were many moments where I was laughing out loud. I just was unused to reading something so "light" and without real structure like a fiction plotline!
