What happens after happily ever after?
This deeply perceptive tale of relationships issues and friendship is Adele Parks at her warmest and most perceptive.
Neil and Nat are a match made in heaven. They hate marmite and the opera. They love smelly cheese and the missionary position. And they both absolutely do not want children.
At least that's what Nat thought. But now Neil seems to have softened to the prospect of dirty nappies and sleepless nights, and he's practically begging her for a baby.
Nat, however, has no intention of swapping her career for a life of endless self-sacrifice. As the crack starts to show, Nat wonders if Neil is really the man of her drams. Or is it possible that someone from her past could actually be 'the one'?
Adele Parks goes deeper beyond romance to the questions at the heart of being in a relationships today, and asks the question- is there something wrong with a woman not wanting to have kids?
Examining modern questions of love and family, Men I've Loved Before looks at what happens to relationships in the early years. Funny yet wise, as with all Adele Park's books, this is a perfect book club read dealing as it does with questions of contemporary womanhood.
