Those who think they know me would tell you I’m a caring mother, a loyal friend, and a dutiful wife. They’d say the golden path which led me here is the road every little girl dreams of taking.
However, the guise of my happy existence has come to be just that—an illusion. A mask of contentment intended for the world to believe.
Not many years into my marriage, I became an abandoned housewife to an adulterous husband. A proud, but sad, mother of two beautiful daughters.
My days were spent somewhere lost between empty and alone.
Then he came back.
Mason Cole offered a second chance to share the life we were supposed to have together. He gave me a glimpse of myself. The woman I'd forgotten long ago.
My road to hell was paved with good intentions. But sometimes good intentions get lost amidst a heart's desire.
At least mine did.
Now I’ll tell you why.
Author Freya Barker: “I have yet to meet an AC Bextor book I didn’t like, but Keep Happy just moved that bar even higher.”
Michella: “A gripping story of love and loss that expands over years.”
Linda Diamond: “Wow I am a huge fan a A.C. Bextor and this book is absolutely amazing!!”
You have to understand that I try and not DNF a book and I'm probably in a really harsh mood right now, but this book...where do I start? Do I start where, Mason, the hero is having sex with another woman but pretending it's the heroine? Or do I start where the heroine has an affair with the hero because her husband had an affair? Two wrongs don't make a right but boy does it in this book and don't get me started on the...but he did it first excuse!! Seriously I'm kind of sick of authors writing stories or books with the trope that cheating is cool as long as the other person is not "really" with the person they're with. The writing was good, but nowhere near this author's first series and I had to go back and read that because I wanted to make sure it was the same author. This book unfortunately just didn't do anything for me in the sense that in the end I was like...whatever.
AC Bextor lives in a small town in the Midwest. When she's not writing she can be found reading or watching her favorite sports teams. She enjoys spending time outside fishing, swimming, or camping.
