Three married men and friends behave as if they are single. As a premise, it was worth exploring.

Unfortunately, "Single Husbands" has something else in mind. Just what, I'm not sure. Despite being told from multiple points of view, with alternating chapters told in the voices of the men, I didn't feel I knew them any better at the end of the book as I did with the beginning. Their egomaniacal behavior swamped their identities and any other qualities they possessed. With the exception of Nikki, Herschel's wife, we knew little to nothing about their wives. We didn't know why they did what they other than they could. As these couples came together, split up and regrouped in different pairs, it's hard to care much. "Single Husbands" isn't a terrible novel, but it's not much of a novel as there is more sex than an actual story. I've enjoyed Mary Morrison's previous work, but this failed to deliver.
