'The Seven Year Itch' is written by the very successful husband and wife writing team of Josie Lloyd and Emlyn Rees. They first started writing together about seven years ago when they wrote a book called 'Join Together' which was about a couple of characters called Jack and Amy who were just about to get married. I remember really enjoying reading this book especially as I was just about to get married myself and I could see quite a lot of parallels between the story and my own circumstances. I was really pleased when I started to read 'The Seven Year Itch' that Jack and Amy were back again, this time seven years into their marriage, just like me, and once again, as I ..

The Seven Year Itch - Josie Lloyd and Emlyn Rees I don't often get chance to read that many books - even chick lit - but a friend of mine gave me this book to read on holiday, when you have time to relax and read something easy and not too serious. ***What's it all about?*** I feel like I have come to the party late with this book, as it seems there are many more books that have been written by this duo (who are partners in life also) about the same characters to boot. So the first thing I will say is that I easily got into this book, without knowing anything about what had happened previously. Amy and Jack are a couple with a ... Read the complete review

==Synopsis of the book:== Jack and Amy have been married for seven years. They have generally been happy, but are they starting now they are in their thirties to drift apart? They have a two year old son Ben. Jacks works at a landscape Gardener while Amy is a full time Housewife and Mother. Recently they seem to argue more and in some areas they want different things. For example Amy would love to have another Child, while Jack is against it. He sees money being tight and no possibility at present of moving from their two bedroom flat.

This is another brilliant book about Jack and Amy! I loved 'Come Together', and 'Come Again' continued the story well, so I was eager to read this. I wasn't disappointed! The couple are now married, and have a young son together. While this an take some getting used too, we are eased into the new situation easily, in a very well written introduction. On the surface, the book is raunchy, sexy and laugh out loud funny, but it has a hidden side too, exploring how each partner views their marriage and how the "Seven year itch" affects them. Jack worries he isn't irresistible to women anymore, with hilarious consequences, and Amy gets stuck in the ... Read the complete review

If you have ever been married or had children then there are aspects of this story that you will identify with. I spent a lot of time smiling while reading this book and even giggling the reason yes it was funny, but mainly because I had had that converstaion, made that comment or just thought that thought. Jack and Amy have been together for seven years and have a two year old son. I feel that the story builds a wonderful picture of the relationship between both parents with their child and how that relationship differs from parent to parent. and Amy feels somewhat isolated after she leaves her job to care for her son Ben. So desperate for company that she ... Read the complete review
