From the bestselling author of The Perfect Nanny, her prizewinning novel about a sex-addicted woman in Paris Adele appears to have a perfect life: She is a successful journalist in Paris who lives in a beautiful apartment with her surgeon husband and their young son. But underneath the surface, she is bored by her job and her marriage—and consumed by an insatiable need to have sex. Driven less by pleasure than compulsion, she organizes her day around her extramarital affairs, arriving late to work and lying to her husband about where she's been, until she becomes ensnared in a trap of her own making. Suspenseful, erotic, and daring, Adele is a captivating exploration of addiction, sexuality, and one woman's quest to feel alive.
