Her friend Pam believes that Claudia is in the Grand Canyon of ruts having tasted no male fruit except Jackson whom she has been with since high school and engaged to for five years. Claudia follows her pal's advice to go looking for some lust and informs Jackson they need some separation time. Jackson wholeheartedly agrees to Claudia's shock. As she tests the wolf population by GOING BUCK WILD (or as feral as she can) with the Cody crowd, Claudia begins to realize she took the wrong aisle as she misses steady Jackson and wants him back permanently as in married.

Readers will appreciate this delightful chick lit charmer starring a strong protagonist who is intelligent enough to conclude that she chose a path wrong for her though it does take Claudia some time (after all it is a novel) to realize that. The story line is often amusing, but also contains a powerful theme that relationships work best when parties are honest with each other and with themselves. Though the audience could have used deeper insight into Jackson in order to fully compare him with the better developed Cody, readers will appreciate Claudia's Austin's joy ride.
