This is my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. Well, the first 90% of it, which I found to be really well written. The emotions of all the characters involved were beautifully portrayed enabling you to see the unfolding dramas from all perspectives, which isn’t always easy! I read the book in two sittings (nearly one, but I had to give in to sleep!) because I wanted to know the outcome for all those involved. However, I found the last part of the book was too fast and ended quite abruptly. I turned the page expecting there to be a final chapter, or at least an epilogue, to round up the loose ends and to see how all the characters had fared. So, I was left a little disappointed that this wasn’t there and I felt that the ending had been rushed. Despite that, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that enjoys reading about relationship dramas and the effect these have on the characters. Lucy Caruana, A LoveReading Ambassador
In this powerful debut, a successful businesswoman embarks on a journey of self-discovery that will shake her to the core. Like the shiny new BMW parked in the driveway of the Silicon Valley home she shares with her husband, Matt, and their two boys, Susan Sinclair exudes confidence and style. Newly promoted to a prestigious Senior Vice President position at her firm, Susan is the picture of personal and professional success. Yet appearances are deceiving. With each advance in Susan's career, Matt has grown more distant. But he refuses to admit there is a problem, and Susan, determined to give her boys the close-knit family life she never had, forces herself to play along. Then she meets her new boss, Reese Kirkpatrick. She and Reese become a crackerjack team, but little by little, pleasure mixes with business. For the first time in a long time, Susan feels seen and appreciated for who she is. In a moment of weakness, friendship becomes something more. Now, unable to stomach the faade her marriage has become yet unwilling to decimate her family by moving forward with Reese, Susan faces a choice that could cost her everything-including her children . . . but possibly bring her more than she can dream.
