*Review* The Spice of Life by Jake Furie Lapin

 The Spice of Life (or TSOL, to fans) follows Jake Furie Lapin, a 37-year-old sexaholic and loving Dom. As the first book in a three-part series, TSOL explores Jake’s transformation from a submissive, out-of-shape man, stuck in a sexless marriage, to a strong, successful, fit, loving Dom. This first book follows Jake as he describes his many sexual adventures, in great detail, to Kelli, his sex therapist. Kelli Lemberg is a successful sex therapist who has an office-based practice in Manhattan. Like Jake, Kelli finds herself trapped in a marriage that is lacking heat and passion. Through her sex therapy sessions with Jake, Kelli begins to undergo an amazing transformation of her own, as she uncovers and explores the depths of her own inner sexuality and sensual fire.

The Spice of Life takes the reader on journey of transformation for Jake Furie Lapin. This first part of the book shows the voyage of an overweight, out of shape man in a unhappy marriage to him becoming healthy, successful and loving Dom. In this first part of the book we learn about the path that Jake has taken to transform his life. We learn this when he explains his story in great detail to his sex therapist Kelly.  Kelly Lemberg, Jake’s therapist is finding herself unsatisfied in her marriage. The passion that she wishes were present is nowhere to be found. Through her meetings with Jake, Kelly begins to uncover the depths of her sexuality and sensuality. 
This book is part one of this three part series. I thought it was a great introduction to the story. Both Jake and Kelly were characters who were easy to identify with and relate to. I think Jake does a good job at telling his story in a different way. At times I felt like I was reading a diary or a personal monologue more than a novel. I thought this approach was unique and it held my attention throughout. The way the story was written made it easy to actually visualize the transformation that both characters were undergoing. While I really enjoyed the writing and the uniqueness of this story, there is one thing personally for me that I have a hard time with in any book and that is cheating. Rather then decide that a marriage is not working and move on, the characters turn to emotionally and physically cheating on their spouses. Because there was cheating present in this book (and I dislike that) I am giving this book four stars.
