Read the sample, enjoyed the premise so requested this book. Sadly I wish I hadn’t. I like S.Anders writing style and the way the book flowed, with dual POV allowing an insight into each characters thoughts. I just didn’t like the continuous cheating, and found it hard to believe that Nia and Jack who were supposed to be heartbroken could turn to each other so rapidly. Nia especially as she knew nothing about her husbands affair until the TV crew approached her. It seemed like only a day o two later they were on the verge of sex, having fallen hard for each other – that just doesn’t work for me. The way things were so slick too – the solicitor saying the court would order her husband to put back the money he’d taken from their joint account, and she’d have money within a week, well maybe US courts move quicker than UK but That Quick? Really? Then Jack tells her his house is huge – I think he describes it as like a ranch, with kitchen in the middle, and she’d be one end and him the other, and they wouldn’t need to see each other. So why then when Nia takes a spare bedroom, and Jack understandably doesn’t want to sleep in the master as his wife may have cheated there, does he need to sleep on the couch, and the two seem to fall over each other constantly. Some of the writing became decidedly weird at points, such as when she’s taking the lasagne out of the oven. Jack’s musing about her “bottom” – and the time he takes internally meandering about it makes me wonder just how deep was that oven, as it must have taken her five minutes to get the one dish out, not the 30 seconds or so most people would take….
All in all I didn’t enjoy this book. There were some titillating, slightly erotic moments, but the characters were all frankly shallow and dislikeable in my opinion, and I didn’t really care what happened to them. Sad but that’s how I felt. Maybe its just me, and others will love this book, who knows? Priced at £1.91 for 125 pages/273kb its a quick short read.
Stars: Sorry but only two from me, this just didn’t resonate for me.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
