Insatiable: A Love Story for Greedy Girls by Daisy Buchanan

Insatiable: A Love Story for Greedy Girls by Daisy Buchanan


Stuck in a dead-end job, broken-hearted, broke and estranged from her best friend: Violet's life is nothing like she thought it would be. She wants more - better friends, better sex, a better job - and she wants it now. 

So, when Lottie - who looks like the woman Violet wants to be when she grows up - offers Violet the chance to join her exciting start-up, she bites. Only it soon becomes clear that Lottie and her husband Simon are not only inviting Violet into their company, they are also inviting her into their lives.

Seduced by their townhouse, their expensive candles and their Friday-night sex parties, Violet cannot tear herself away from Lottie, Simon or their friends. But is this really the more Violet yearns for? Will it grant her the satisfaction she is so desperately seeking?

Insatiable is about women and desire - lust, longing and the need to be loved. It is a story about being unable to tell whether you are running towards your future or simply running away from your past. The result is at once tender and sad, funny and hopeful.


"Filthy, funny, and raw, Insatiable is utterly addictive." - Louise O'Neill  

"A piercing insight into the unreal demands modern women place on themselves and told with real humour and energy, we love this book so much." - Stylist  

"A raucous unravelling of female desire and bodily pleasures, in all their maddening complexity" - Emma Jane Unsworth  

"Few books out in the early half of the year are as flat-out entertaining as Buchanan's fizzy, filthy story of a young woman's sexual awakening." - i paper  

"I'd call Insatiable Jilly Cooper for the Instagram generation, but that wouldn't do this book justice." - Lauren Bravo  

"Daisy brings characters to life like no other writer, pumping them full of humour, vulnerability and sexy sexy sex." - Lucy Vine
