And so, onto the 4th instalment of idodoyou’s series of ops that pays homage to Jilly Cooper. A series of op’s that tries to educate the readers and members of dooyoo in the finer art of horsey’s and upper class sex (they do it the same way, they just say ‘thanks awfully old chap’ afterwards). A series of ops that have, well basically been started and so must be finished. Just another 2 to go folks…………… I’ll get them over and done with as quickly as possible, promise………… although … the last two are my least favourite of the Cooper bonkbusters (yep, shock horror, mouths ...

This book is in my mind a very tongue in cheek farce, starting in a small village or hamlet in Rut shire called Paradise Grange. Lysander Hawkley a haphazard polo player and slight drunk, who has a penchant for a pretty face whether she be young or older, gets sucked into a lifestyle that is to say the least very risky and a little on the dangerous side by his friend Ferdie. He hires him out to all the ladies of the village to make the husbands jealous and to get the husbands to leave their mistresses and go back home. This is where the fun starts, Jilly Cooper has a wonderfully comical style of writing that takes you through each relationship ... Read the complete review

The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous is the fourth in the series and it is Jilly Cooper at her best! After all the technical writing in Polo, this is a breath of fresh air. It’s a good romp of a story with plenty of sexual tension, subterfuge and fun. Lysander Hawskley, a gorgeous kind-hearted man is trying to blot out the death of his mother by drinking and gambling. He is in debt and out of work. His friend Freddie comes up with the solution. Lysander was good at making husband’s jealous so he might as well get paid for it. Freddie sorts out the business side of the arrangement and Lysander does the ‘hard’ work! He starts by ... Read the complete review

To anyone who is new to Jilly Cooper's work, this is the fourth in a series of novels and it's probably best to go back and read them from the start, which is 'Riders'; although it is possible to read this book as a standalone one, it helps to understand about the background characters. Anyway, onto characters. 'The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous' in the title is Lysander Hawkley. He's 22, his mother recently died, he's unemployed and he falls for every woman he meets, usually the unhappily married ones. This results in the husbands roaring back, being massively jealous of Lysander's gorgeousness. Next we have Ferdie Fitzgerald, who's Lysander's ... Read the complete review

The main character in this book is Lysander Hawkley a twenty odd adonis who is flat broke and fond of animals. His best friend Ferdie decides that as Lysander can't control himself around beautiful women he might as well make some money out of it by getting there husbands back for them by making them jealous. All seems to be going well until he is asked to get Rannaldini back for Kitty and falls in love with her. Lysander has a variety of pets including a horse called Arthur and a dog called Mabel. Lysander Hawkley was almost a real person by the time I had finished reading this book. He had me crying, laughing and sweating. Every ... Read the complete review
