Spin Cycle by Sue Margolis


Hero: Matt Clapton
Heroine: Rachel Katz
Grade: C
Date: 1/14/06

Her husband left her for another man.
Her boyfriend may be cheating.
Her mother’s got a secret.
Is everyone having great sex but Rachel?

Lately, stand-up comic Rachel Katz’s life has begun to resemble a not-so-funny comedy routine — the kind where nobody laughs and everybody inches toward the door.

It began when her husband cheated ... with another man. Now she’s raising a ten-year-old son who’s fixated on Barbra Streisand and wondering if her dentist boyfriend — who won’t stop flossing long enough to make love to her — is having an affair.

Enter Matt Clapton, a wickedly sexy washing machine repairman who likes Rachel’s jokes and makes her feel like a woman for the first time in ages — maybe in her entire life.

With her mother busy planning a wedding Rachel isn’t sure she wants, her son dead set on inviting Barbra to the reception, and the groom-to-be in South Africa, working on someone else’s oral hygiene, the question is: What’s she going to do about it? Especially when fame and fortune beckon in a comedy contest that could put her on the map ... and change her life forever.

Spin Cycle tells a wickedly funny, shamelessly erotic story of lovers and liars, exes and children, parents and other strangers. This hip and hilarious new novel by the acclaimed author of Neurotica introduces a heroine who never loses her sense of humor and who discovers, somewhere between the rinse and spin cycles, that love — and laughter — can truly conquer all.
This book started out a bit slow for me, I actually started another book before giving up on that one to start this one, I liked this cover and look of the book better. It was cute. The story was slow to build up, but it was a fun sweet read. Rachel Katz and her wacky family are a treat to read about and her personality and friendship with Shelley Peach was too funny to read. When Matt comes into the picture, he's a bit funky and just a tad bit fruity, but that didn't stop me from crushing on him from that first meeting with Rachel.

He got better and better with each page he was in and I just absolutely adored him up until it ended. It was a cute read and I was glad that I finished it, although it's not one of my favorites, I will give it 3 stars out of 5.

Liked the story, LOVED the hero.
