Page Readers OutLoud - Today an excerpt from The Prince Charming Hoax, by Shelley Lieber.

The Prince Charming Hoax is the steamy hot and often funny story of best friends Leah Gold and Roxanne Stein, two boomer women trying to break free of the "happily ever after" fairy tale myth of their childhoods. 

Abandoned by her latest Prince Charming on the eve of what she expected to be the start of a new life, Leah is left without a home or a man. Frustrated by yet another disappointment in a string of romantic fiascos, she begins an introspective journey through her past for answers. When she discovers what really stands between her and happiness, she sets off on a mission to help spare other women the pain of looking for love in all the wrong places--even though her crusade may just be a battle that destroys her real prince.

In contrast to the reclusive Leah, her well-heeled best friend, Roxie, teeters on the edge of self-destruction as she tries to satisfy her unquenchable thirst for excitement. Drugs and sex don't diminish her cravings, and the man she falls for, while charming, is no prince. 

On a crazy trip from South Florida to Philadelphia and New York, the duo stumble onto how to save themselves, each other, and perhaps womankind--surprising everyone, especially themselves.
