About the Book

"A vibrant story of self-discovery...sure to capture readers' hearts."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

A sparkling, feel-good tale about starting over, for anyone who's spent too much of their own life making other people happy.

What if you made yourself your number one priority?

Of all the women and men Noni Blake has pleased in her life, there’s one she’s often overlooked—herself. After the end of a decade-long relationship, Noni decides it’s time for that to change. She’s finally going to prioritize her wants and desires and only do things (and people) that feel good in the moment.

As she embarks on a pleasure-seeking quest that takes her halfway around the world, she discovers that maybe she can have everything, and everyone, she’s ever wanted.

Effortlessly hilarious and relatable, Claire Christian spins a fresh, uplifting story about starting over as a thirtysomething woman who’s been living life for everyone else. A story of self-discovery for the ages, Noni’s journey serves as a reminder that life is what we make of it—so why not enjoy it?

"Funny, refreshing and empowering."—Lindsey Kelk
"Pure and joyful."—BookPage, starred review


Critical Praise

"A funny, refreshing and empowering read, as well as a timely reminder to be kind to ourselves (and never miss out on that orgasm)."—Lindsey Kelk, international bestselling author of In Case You Missed It

"A vibrant story of self discovery... Noni is equally sincere and hilarious as she learns to be true to herself, and Beau’s unwavering support is sure to make readers swoon. Both a celebration of pleasure and a dissection of the restrictions people place on their own lives, this is sure to capture readers’ hearts."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

It’s Been a Pleasure, Noni Blake is, well, pure pleasure... Amid gorgeous European landscapes, Noni and the people she encounters are wholly likeable, even when making questionable decisions. Sexy and joyful, this is the story of a woman grappling with the idea that it’s okay to seek—even prioritize—pleasure.”—BookPage, starred review
