REVIEW ~ Miss Chatterley, Part 1: Hungry

Torn between love and sex. By the time Connie decides, it could be too late.
 
Part I: Hungry
 
Connie Chatterley isn’t exactly thrilled about the move to Palo Alto. What will she do in the land of tech billionaires and IPOs? But when her boyfriend Cliff says he needs to do it for his company, she agrees. Isn’t compromise a part of every good relationship? Once in California, Cliff spends all his time with his demanding assistant Ivy Bolton and shark-like investment banker Tommy Dukes, leaving Connie with nothing better to do than go to the gym. But when she starts training with rugged CrossFit coach Oliver Mellors, Connie feels a dangerous attraction to the sexy stranger. And after one shocking moment of weakness, the move isn’t the only thing Connie starts to question.
 
Don’t miss the next episodes of this four-part serial re-imagining of D.H. Lawrence’s classic Lady Chatterley’s Lover.
REVIEW

This is the first book in a four part series.  I was told this was a retelling of Lady Chatterley's Lover, which I know nothing about.  So with that said, I didn't know what to expect.  The blurb itself didn't help me, which is fine since sometimes I like to go into books blind.

Connie Chatterley has been dating her boyfriend Cliff for about four years.    Cliff is uber smart and dropped out of college to start a company called Chatterbox.  I guess it's something like Twitter, only better.  Things for Cliff and Connie start to go astray on the night of her college graduation party.  Cliff shows up well past the start and announces that he needs to move from New York to Silicon Valley for his company. He wants Connie to go with him, disregarding her future plans.   Reluctantly, Connie agrees to go with him.  But life for Connie gets worse in CA.  She has no job and no friends.  Pretty depressing for anyone.  But things are about to get worse.

Cliff becomes more and more absorbed by his business that he has little or no time for Connie.  He doesn't even seem to recognize what position she's in.  Honestly, it's like she's not even there.  As a way to get out and about she goes to a gym where she meets Oliver Mellors, an extreme fitness coach.  Connie starts to fantasize about her and Oliver.  Having a fantasy is okay, right?

Miss Chatterley, Part I: Hungry is the setup for the rest of the series.  It's a story of what happens when one girl feels she's pushed to the edge and does something she never thought she would.

Oh.  There's also a cliffhanger.... At the worst possible moment.  I mean a OH MY FREAKING G**, I can’t believe that just happened moment and cliffhanger.  Luckily, all the books are out, so I just have to grab the next one.
