Publisher's Summary

Alastair has found the perfect partner in husband Steven. Together they've built a successful life, had a beautiful child, and still behave like newlyweds long since the day he carried her over the threshold.  

But all of that changes in an instant thanks to a thoughtless deed that has lifelong repercussions. 

With secrets bubbling to the surface, the pair find their American dream life suddenly in jeopardy, and neither one of them are willing to let go at any cost.

Is there any psychological suspense underneath all of that porn?

This might have been an interesting story but I’ll never know. I could not even get past the first few chapters. I should have given up sooner and Iwish I could un-hear it!
I only listened as far as I did because the storyline in the description sounded interesting. It’s as if the publisher took a great story and ruined it by asking the author to drown it in pornographic sex.

Shout out to the female narrator, Piper Goodeve. I gave her 5 stars. The story got one star.

I mostly enjoyed this book, however...

Maybe it's just me but it sure seemed like every characters' first reaction to any surprising/upsetting news was to gag and/or vomit. Good book, just kind of a lot of puke.

Caught-off guard....

This book caught me off guard with how the pursuit with the affair would go and what it would result in and how the wife would handle it. The ending was bittersweet with the direction the marriage went it in. I felt this ending was reasonably realistic. It was a good read for me. I would recommend this for romance lovers that want something a little naughty with a lot to lose.

Bad writing, worse editing

This is a poorly written book and, seemingly, it was not subjected to any editing. The plot is far-fetched. The "action" scenes are incomprehensible. And it appears that someone used a thesaurus app to choose imprecise verbs every few paragraphs. Very disappointing!

Twisted Minds

When one woman gets the idea that another woman is partially responsible for destroying her life, this book is a how to guide of extreme revenge.

A man at a bar, a pretty woman and one too many drinks lead to one single backseat Fu**. A mistake that cost a man his wife, daughter, their comfortable lifestyle and almost his life.

But it was all intentionally set in motion for revenge by a woman who is psychologically unstable. She blamed someone loosely associated with the death of her child, and she was going to make sure everyone suffered.

And she almost got away with it all. Almost.

Ugh

I don’t get why she doesn’t confront her husband. It’s so annoying. And why does every interaction with the child have to be so baby like.
