The “light bulb” moment came for Delaine Moore while she was on the table at her acupuncturist’s office. After hearing of Delaine’s impending life as a divorcée, her acupuncturist said to her:
“You might be getting a divorce, but you aren’t dead!”
And so began Delaine’s journey of self-discovery, and the awakening of her long-dormant libido.

The Secret S*x Life Of A Single Woman. It was the title that caught my eye.
Canadian author, Delaine Moore’s memoir about life after divorce is about so much more than the title would suggest, more than just the titillating tales of the bedroom escapades of a Canadian divorcée.
After the discovery that her husband of seven years is cheating on her with another woman, Delaine, a mother of 3 young children, decides the best course of action is to “suck it up” and persevere with her marriage. Delaine throws all her strength into keeping it all together for the sake of the kids, only to find things unraveling when she begins to realize that the relationship with the man she once loved, has been chipping away at her body and soul for years. Delaine finally wakes up to the realization that “the body never lies”. When you are part of an unhealthy relationship, your body, passion and desires all close down. It’s called self-protection.
In the book, Delaine shares insights that many divorced women can probably relate to. Upon the dissolution of her marriage, Delaine stood strong and kept life going along as normal as possible for her children – despite feeling utterly devastated inside.
In The Secret S*x Life Of A Single Mom, Delaine takes readers on an exciting journey of discovery. From confronting her ex-husbands girlfriend, to having her own affair, to exploring her sexuality and participating in situations she never dreamed she would try, this book is a fascinating read…and a real “page-turner”.
Compared by many reviewers to 2012’s “Fifty Shades Of Grey”, The Secret S*x Life Of A Single Mom is an empowering story that explores what it means to be a woman – and a sexual being. For many women, their “inner sexual goddess” often gets lost among the dirty diapers, sleepless nights and piles of laundry and other household chores. Challenging society’s rules about women, Delaine survived a painful divorce, infidelity, and single parenthood, and has become an inspiration to women everywhere; divorced or married! The Secret S*x Life Of A Single Mom is a book full of self discovery. I dare say that every woman who reads this fascinating novel, will see at least a little of themselves buried within the pages.
Ever since Delaine’s whole world fell apart, she has been rising out of the relationship rubble to become a much sought after “author, speaker, Mars Venus Divorce and Relationship Coach (with Dr. John Gray), and the founder of “I Am Divorced Not Dead”, a website she originally started as a personal blog.
More exciting things are happening for Delaine these days. The Lifetime Network is currently filming a movie based on The Secret S*x Life Of A Single Mom. That’s right, they are turning Delaine’s book into a movie! And guess what? True Blood’s Ashley Jones will be playing Delaine in the movie. It’s a dream come true for Delaine!
For those concerned that The Secret S*x Life Of A Single Mom may be a little too racy for the mom in you, I say, step outside your “Momma” box. Fill the tub with hot water and bubbles, sit back, relax, and enjoy this book. Maybe you’ll rediscover your own womanhood again. While this book does touch on a number of “taboo” topics, it is neither pornographic, nor lewd. I enjoyed this book from start to finish, and will proudly display it on my bookshelf for years to come.
