I have had this book since it first came out and only now have I read it. Twice… why did I wait so long?
Cheating. I hate cheating... of any kind... It’s too real and provokes a raw of an emotion pain that’s too real for me. I read to escape reality, not have it smack me in the face.
I did read the reviews and many didn’t like Sadie... I loved her... I connected with her and understood her and Sadie could easily have been me or any other woman. A woman who loves her husband and then is blindsided when he becomes distant and refused to communicate. After seven years of married bliss, the man you love suddenly becomes a stranger and Sadie, given her past, simply doesn’t know to mend the breach, Nathan, her husband creates. Nathan, in his struggle to come to terms lacking in his relationship with Sadie, and not discussing things with her directly, hurts her enough to drive her into her new neighbor’s, Finn’s arms.
Now I loved Finn, I felt for him because he really cared about Sadie, but was in himself, in transition. He was trying to build a life and was himself married to someone he should have divorced a long time ago. He was figuring out his life but he knew he wanted Sadie in it.
Nathan, I did not like. I understood he had issues with some of Sadie’s decisions, but I’ve always felt to give your partner the silent treatment is extremely cruel. When Sadie tried to do things out of her comfort zone for him, they were met with derision and sometimes contempt. No, I didn’t like Nathan and it’s not until almost to the end when Sadie has had enough, that he suddenly realizes that he wants his marriage.
I’ve learned that communication or lack thereof, is essitentel in a marriage and that cheating something is not just about the physical, but sometimes it’s a symptom that something integral is missing is missing in the relationship. If two people generally love each other, they will forgive and mend the hurt and move on. Sadie and Nathan come to realization. I loved how Andrew, Sadie’s brother, confronted her with her decisions. I love how the situation with Finn was resolved even as my heart broke for him. Sadie realized that she could love Finn, but she was in love with her husband and would never be out of love with him. Jessica Hawkins is simply put one of the best writers and I’m hooked on her books. She doesn’t take the easy path in a story, and this one was wonderfully written.
Sadie was obviously very self absorbed and extremely indulgent regarding her needs and wants. Although it did seem that she attempted to confront him it appeared half hearted at best. If I think of myself in that position, I would have not accepted his refusal to communicate. When in a relationship you are dealing with two different perspectives and he did appear dismissive.
I must say that his character was the epitome of the ideal mate. (Aside from the time period in which he was distant and removed himself emotionally and physically from the relationship). He was sexy and pleasing in every possible way, and apparently loved her unconditionally. He was the tidy one and completely unselfish with his time, always giving of himself to her and others. Now come on, I know that it is possible that there are men out there like that but this was a little over the top. For some reason Finn was portrayed more like the typical male that we're all familiar with. Completely self indulgent and looking out for himself. I mean, c'mon now, since when is it acceptable to move away from your family into an apartment alone and then have an affair with your next door neighbor? It would seem he and Sadie were meant for each other. As for her, how ideal for her, getting two hot guys and both still wanting her. Crazy Right?
Over all I will say the story kept me engaged so I guess that says it all, as that is what a good writer does.
Since the publisher does state that this story is about infidelity, I am not giving anything away that this is a major point in the plot line. Of course, this might not be everyone's cup of tea for a romance novel. Yet, the book gives great insight to what is happening in the minds of all three characters which is an eye-open. This love triangle will have an HEA, but the road to get there will be difficult and of course, not all will get an HEA in the end. If you listen to Audios, the narration is fabulous and is read from Andi Arndt who is one of the best in the industry. My only complaint was the ending was a bit rushed making it seem a bit unrealistic how the characters are able to go forward. Yet, in the fiction world, this is not uncommon. The story has to end at some point. For readers who are looking for hot romance, this still has all the elements with all the characters, but it is no fairytale.
