Publisher's Summary

If you both cheat, does that cancel the infidelity out altogether? Can you just wipe the slate clean?

Cam and Holly have a picture-perfect marriage and life: a beautiful house in the suburbs and two adorable little boys. Cam has sold his successful marketing agency to look after the boys while Holly goes full throttle on her career post-maternity leave, and everything’s peachy.

‘Til Cam discovers Holly has been having an affair with a colleague.

Heartbroken but pragmatic, Cam sees the situation as an opportunity to confess his own infidelity with his 21-year-old assistant. His thinking being a dual-infidelity situation means they cancel each other out...and their marriage will simply bounce back, and they’ll fall in love all over again. But a tangled web of lies and buried resentments makes starting over harder than he thought.

Zoë Foster Blake has written a provocative novella that rips off the glossy cling-wrap of being successful and married with young children. Clean Slate is narrated from the husband’s perspective and will invite listeners to rethink infidelity and how it can creep into a marriage.

Zoë Foster Blake is the author of 10 books, so you’d think she’d be capable of a sassier bio, frankly.

She has written four adult fiction novels, Air Kisses, Playing the Field, The Younger Man and The Wrong Girl, which was adapted into a Channel 10 network television series, four non-fiction titles, Textbook Romance, Amazinger Face, Break-Up Boss and LOVE!, and two children’s picture books, the award-winning No One Likes a Fart and soon-to-be released Back to Sleep. She is also the founder of the Australian skin care company Go-To.

Zoë lives in Melbourne with her husband and two children, who kindly let her make porridge each morning for them.

Clean Slate is her first Audible Original.

More like Zoe Foster Wakeupcall

Look, I’m quite biased as I think ZFB can do no wrong but holy moly.

This was excellent.

My only gripe is that I can’t buy it as a physical copy to force on any poor soul who dares ask me for an easy but powerful read.

Honest, real, and brimming with real takeaways and emotional lessons. Click that download button right now. Do it. You won’t regret it.

Clean Slate....

This was an enjoyable quick listen. I don’t normally go with this genre but enjoyed it enough to maybe consider this genre in the future. Narration was good.

Loved it

This felt so real it didn’t even seem like fiction. Got something to tell us about you and Hamish, Zoe? Not my usual sort of book, but listened to it all in one day. Loved it.
