    One thought on “Swings”

    1. Swings by Corbin Lewars is a novel about a young, unhappy, new mother whose marriage and sense of self worth have fallen on hard times. Her status as a mother is far more of a burden and an obligation than it is a joy. Billed as an erotic novel, it is not. As a romance, it is not. As a novel of a woman's insecurity and of a marriage doomed by lack of communication, it is that. As an example of a self centered and selfish young mother whose demands for attention go unheard by everyone but those t [...]

    2. Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.Sadie is having trouble finding her place in the world as the mother to an infant son. She’s tried to fit in with the local baby playgroups, but finds that her desire to maintain her own identity (one that includes working outside the home) makes them unbearable. So when she meets John, the only dad amongst a group of alpha-moms, she finds a kindred spirit. When she discovers that John is part of an open marriage (a fac [...]

    3. Swings tells the story of Sadie and Kyle, first time parents, with the focus on Sadie. The story starts with her joining yet another Mom Group, in an effort to find someone to commiserate with – not to find ways to make organic food and detergent. She yearns to meet moms who are experiencing the same realizations that she has come to: being a parent is hard, tiring, messy – yet you wouldn’t trade it for the world. In this class, she meets John – the only father with a daughter in the sea [...]

    4. I think I spent most of this book disliking a majority of the characters. I immediately connected with Sadie and her feeling like an outcast at Mommy groups. “Their quick change of topic tells me the mention of wanting to escape to a hotel was taboo enough, so I better not ostracize myself further by asking them about their favorite sex toys.” Her commentary on motherhood was also refreshing. Yes, being a mom (especially a stay at home mom) is wonderful but it's hard and draining. “It's we [...]

    5. Swings by Corbin Lewars is an enjoyable women's fiction story that follows the personal journey of Sadie Walker as she tries to find her way as a new mom while dealing with an unhappy marriage.As a new mom, Sadie is struggling with finding a balance in her tension filled marriage while trying to take care of her newborn son Spence with little help from her uninterested husband Kyle. She tries several Mommy and Me groups looking to make friends with people who are going through the same trials an [...]

    6. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Sadie Walker decided that joining a Mommy and Me play group would be the best choice for her and her son Spencer. Things at home with her husband were starting to get tense. Sadie felt like she was doing all the work with the baby and her husband was extremely uninterested, caring only about work. After joining the group she meets a Dad named John and she was instantly attracted. It wasn't a surprise since he was a fantastic father, [...]

    7. First impressions? I think the cover art is brilliant. Not only do the colors pop, many in the book industry credit eReaders for the rise in discrete reading (you can read erotica on a Kindle and almost no one will know). The cover art on this book is “safe” for public reading; it doesn’t overtly draw on sexual themes with the possible exception of the title, Swings, which I think is a great example of a double entendre.The paperback edition of this March 2015 release by Booktrope Editions [...]

    8. I was sent a copy of the book for review through NetGalley, as always, all opinions are my own.Corbin Lewars really nailed what it feels like to be a new mom. As I was reading the early portions of the book I kept remembering similar circumstances when my son was first born. I never fit in with the mothers at the play groups we attended and eventually gave them up. Where my life differs from the story is the fact that I never met anyone like John. In the beginning he comes across as the perfect [...]

    9. *** thank you netgalley/publisher for providing me a copy in exchange for an honest review! ***swings was an ok read- if you don't expect a romance, that is and i have expected one (since it was in that shelf at netgalley!), so i was disappointed.i guess for women's fiction, it was an ok read (although i'm not accustomed to this genre). but there were a lot of loose endings. it just wasn't for me. i give swings 2 starsease remember, that this is only my opinion - everyone should try the book for [...]
