Description
A heartwarming and hilarious novel about swinging, marriage, and complexities of the heart.
“This book is fun as hell. Hilarious, addictive, moving, and sexy. I lost track of time reading it, and I couldn’t get enough!” —Jasmine Guillory, bestselling author of While We Were Dating

Georgina Wagman has it all—a great marriage, a great job at a prestigious law firm, and great friends. She’s living the life she always wanted, and everything is perfect. Until, that is, she walks in on her husband Nathan in a compromising position with a junior associate. Georgina has a moment of crisis. But divorce is not a part of the five-year plan, so she comes up with an idea to save her marriage and recapture the spark. She and Nathan are going to become swingers.
Georgina isn’t going to embark on this adventure alone, though. Her friends Felix and Norah and their respective partners decide to tag along for the ride. They’ve got relationship woes of their own that swinging just might fix. Georgina, convinced Felix and Norah belong together, is thrilled. What better place to reignite romance between two people destined to be together than a swingers’ party? Her plan is foolproof, until she runs into a college ex at the first party. When they reconnect, Georgina will find herself torn between her head and her heart, with her very happiness hanging in the balance. Perfect for fans of Jennifer Weiner and Sophie Kinsella, The Lifestyle is a playful homage to Jane Austen's Emma Woodhouse and an outrageously fun summer read.

        March 21, 2022
        Hahn’s zany, high-energy debut recasts Jane Austen’s meddlesome heroine Emma as a 30-something New York City lawyer, and her plan for solving everyone’s relationship issues is a foray into the swinger scene. After Georgina Wagman discovers her coworker and husband, Nathan, cavorting in his office with Georgina’s legal mentee, she takes a client’s advice and offers Nathan the bonding experience of attending swinger parties as a solution. She suggests her friends Felix and Norah (and their respective partners) join the experiment as well, ostensibly as moral support but actually in the hopes that the two of them will leave their relationships to rekindle their college romance with one another. Hahn keeps the story firmly centered on Georgina’s narrow and self-centered perspective, and her well-meaning but overinvolved tone is hilariously on-point. The swinger scene is depicted with playfulness and heart, though none of the characters fully embrace it. Georgina’s romance arc—a contrived re-meet-cute with her ex Whitaker—makes sense with the concept of fated love Hahn imports from Austen, but their monogamous happy ending feels distinctly less fun than the swinging that precedes it. Still, Hahn’s plot stands well enough on its own for those unfamiliar with Emma to enjoy, and readers who love contemporary resettings of the classics will be especially tickled.

        Georgina Wagman and her husband, Nathan, are partners at a large New York City law firm. On an unplanned visit to Nathan's office, Georgina finds Meredith, the junior associate she's been mentoring, and her husband having sex on his desk. Seeking comfort from friends and learning that none of them seem truly happy, Georgina decides to fix things for everyone. First step, try out the partner-swapping lifestyle for increased romantic excitement and the chance to pair friends with partners she sees as more suitable. First-time novelist Hahn posits her protagonist as a very open-minded variation on Jane Austen's Emma in her well-meaning but misguided meddling in the relationships of people close to her. While all the characters undergo significant life changes inspired by Georgina's actions, her support of Meredith is notable for encouraging Meredith not to take on the full negative burden of the affair, and to consider her own career and reputation. Readers will be educated on the swinging lifestyle, including the difference between a soft swap and full swap; they will also experience a brief sex-club experience, and follow the characters' discussions of the range of reasons this lifestyle appeals to some people. A spicy tale with varying degrees of sexually graphic descriptions, this may please fans of Christina Lauren and Emily Henry.
