The Naked Truth
a book review by Caitlin HIcks: The Naked Truth: A Memoir
Morgan found herself at a crossroads on the threshold of 50 with two grown children and two failed relationships. Encouraged by friends and family to embrace a fresh beginning, she bought a new Audi and daringly embarked on a dating marathon that sparked a seemingly unquenchable thirst for passion and sexual gratification. A formidable, addictive storyteller, Morgan provides a highly stimulating story of a midlife education in the messiness of modern sex and love. Doyle offers another lucid, inspiring chronicle of female empowerment and the rewards of self-awareness and renewal. More life reflections from the bestselling author on themes of societal captivity and the catharsis of personal freedom. In her third book, Doyle Love Warrior , , etc. Some stories merely skim the surface of larger issues, but Doyle revisits them in later sections and digs deeper, using friends and familial references to personify their impact on her life, both past and present.
The Naked Truth: A Memoir
Morgan writes with such chatty confidence about her personal dilemmas as a woman at 49, that when she goes into the backstory of her failed second marriage after only a teaser about her intention for the rest of the book, it works anyway. Since the reader has now been through the backstory, we understand the stakes, the triumph of this coupling, the personal meaning of her freedom, her unabashed enjoyment. As she is attracted to and beds five different men in pursuit of self-discovery and confidence and yes, good sex, the book leaps and bounds ahead into the adventures and the mind of this now-liberated woman who seems to be coming into her own as she passes an important milestone into aging, her 50th birthday.

When Leslie Morgan divorced after a twenty-year marriage, both her self-esteem and romantic optimism were shattered.
