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.

"Insatiable is headed for big things and rightly so. Couple Daisy's writing prowess (and she's at her best here) with a story that's completely unique and has you gripped from page one and there are no limits on the audience this book can reach. Except maybe your nan. Don't give it to your nan." - Caroline Corcoran

"Extremely funny, touching and wonderfully refreshing on women and sexual desire." - Marian Keyes

"Gloriously rude and brave about the nature of women's desire." - Sophia Money-Coutts

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

"I devoured this book in a day - hissing furiously at anyone who dared interrupt - and now can't stop talking about it. Insatiable is an absolute triumph; so beautifully written and compelling, I couldn't put it down. Daisy brings characters to life like no other writer, pumping them full of humour, vulnerability and sexy sexy sex. I cried and laughed and did some other stuff I'm not going to tell you about. But I will tell you to buy several copies, because your first will probably fall apart from re-reads." - Lucy Vine

"I can't believe this is a fiction debut - she writes stories like she's been doing it for fifty years." - Laura Jane Williams
