My review of the novel “A Life Less Monogamous” by Cooper S. Beckett

My husband and I discovered the Life on the Swingset podcast shortly after we opened our marriage well over 6 years ago. Listening to Cooper, Dylan, Ginger, (and then co-host Shira) talk and share their experiences helped us a lot in navigating the early waters of non-monogamy, and helped us realize thoughts and feelings as they presented themselves along our journey back then.

I was so excited and totally shy fan-girled when I got to meet them at the Playground Conference this past February. I picked up autographed copies of Coopers two novels (I already had My Life on the Swingset on my Kindle). I just wish I had gotten Cooper to personalize them for me…but I digress.

Reading the adventures of Jennifer and Ryan in A Life Less Monogamous was an entertaining, and very real look at an entrance to swinging. It brought up a lot of thoughts and feelings when Gunnar and I went through it. Both in the excitement of having your eyes opened to this whole new world, negative things we did, to realizing you’ve found a rare but true connection with another couple. We were lucky to find a couple who we call our “other other halves” just over a year into our journey (and we celebrated our 5 year “quadversary” this past January).

It’s a great read that draws you in right from the beginning. The characters are real, they make mistakes, and they have heart. I think anyone who’s seriously considering opening their marriage, especially for swinging, should add this book to their MUST READ list.

I can’t wait to dive into the pool in Approaching The Swingularity next!
