Alyssa Jackson is one of the lucky ones. She has a thriving business, great friends, devoted husband, adorable daughter, and a scorching hot sex life that would be the envy of any married couple. Then, one tragic loss flips her world upside down. Floundering and unsure of how to cope with their grief, Alyssa and her husband drift apart until they are living as roommates instead of a deeply connected couple. Alyssa will do anything to get the intense passion back into her life and marriage, no matter how far out of the box she has to step.
If there is one thing tattoo shop owner Derek knows, it’s that once he set his sights on his wife, he never wanted another woman. Years together haven't begun to put a dent in his desire for her. But everything falls apart when the anguish of loss barges into their lives. Adrift in his own suffering, Derek doesn’t realize how damaged his marriage is until his wife forces him to confront their issues. Now, he’ll do whatever it takes to get their lives back on track, even if the plan seems outrageous.
Barbara (Goodreads) - “OH MY - the feels! The story is Jam-packed with emotions.” Konny (Goodreads) - “I started reading and was captivated from page one.” AC Squared Book Blog - “As a whole I loved how different this book was. It wasn't perfect, it wasn't always happy, and it was just so real! We need more of this!”
This book was a lot different than all the other books I've read by the author...All her other novels have some sort of a theme where love prevails all and there's a feeling of the alpha knowing the heroine is the one. In this book, I felt like "Yes, he loves his wife and he wants it to work, but to what end?" I felt like this was a true to life scenario and many times in our lives we haves things that make our relationships drift apart, but do we do the easy thing and leave or do we do the hard thing and fight to stay? I could very easily see where this was going and there were times I was like "Uh, i wouldn't do that!" Then again, I'm not a heroine in a book and my life isn't fiction😉 Oh, but if it were. If you've enjoyed the authors other books then you'll definitely want to pick this up.
I was given an ARC copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own and do not reflect anyone else's.
