I made a conscious decision to cheat on my husband.

Now, before you judge me, hear my story. Hear how much I'm like you, how similar my thoughts are to your own. Yes, I'm a horrible person. Yes, I've done horrible things. Yes, I don't deserve forgiveness. Yes, bad things happened because of my actions.

But I'm willing to bet I've done things that maybe, just maybe, you have thought of doing.

Maybe, just maybe, you're not as innocent as you'd like to think.

Or maybe I'm not so guilty ...

Alexis says…

I don’t even know how to write a review that will show my love for this book. I know that a lot of people will look at the synopsis and say, “Nope, absolutely not, I’m not reading a book with cheating.” But you know what? This book details what many women think at one time or another during their marriage. I think about all the romance novels out there and how the hero does not live up to real life. I get it, trust me I do. This book doesn’t glamorize cheating nor does it permit it. It shows the feelings and the actions that lead up to it, the emotions that one will go through while living with their indiscretion, and then growing from it.

Mischa is stuck in a rut. Her husband has stopped paying attention to her, their marriage, and she just wants a way out. With the prospect of living abroad temporarily sheds some hope into her life and the possibility of feeling wanted with a one-night stand. Again, I know this may sound awful to many. But you see that Mischa has gone widely ignored by her husband, Michael. She brought up the issues that they were having but he wanted none of it. I don’t condone cheating, but I understand why Mischa felt the way she did and why she wanted to feel some affection.

“Right now you belong to me, and that’s all that matters.”

In just a small amount of time, she meets Tal. He is sexy, mysterious, and just hot as all get out. Once they kiss, there is no going back. From the beginning, all Mischa wanted was to have a one-night stand. But instead she enters into a full-fledged affair with Tal. As I said, Tal is beyond mysterious-you know there is so much more to his story and you literally just want to find out what the hell is going on. Don’t worry, you can keep reading because I am keeping my mouth shut.

“Let me make you fee whole.”

During Tal and Mischa’s affair, you realize that lines have been crossed and it’s not just some casual fling that these two can walk away from unscathed. Fate has a funny way of rearing its sometimes not so cute face and in between a sea of chaos and when it doesn’t seem like it’s meant to be…it just is. I am a firm believer in things happen for a reason.

“If you want to see me, come find me.”

This book was something I was not expecting. There is so much more to the story then what meets the eye. The mystery along with the sexiness just made this book even more delectable. The way the author wrote this story just kept me engaged the entire time. I didn’t want to put it down. At all. I can’t even tell you how many tears I shed because of this book. Not just for the messed up situation but the feelings and emotions it provoked. Things aren’t always what they seem and secrets have an ugly way of coming out.

This book captured my heart and it will always be a top recommendation for me. Please give this a try…I promise you won’t be disappointed.


About Stylo Fantome

Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since …, forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
