This book should come with a warning: Don’t open unless you have several hours to spare! You’re hooked in to Cleo’s life from the very first page.
Fuelled by fury and alcohol, Cleo trips into an uncharacteristic weekend fling with Justin after her husband, Gavin, manufacturers a marriage shaking row and scrawls This marriage is over on the bedroom wall, quite literally in marker pen! Justin is bowled over by Cleo’s sense of fun and air of madness – until it becomes clear that her marriage might be sailing through a storm rather than firmly on the rocks. He suspects he’s been no more than an instrument of revenge.
If you're looking for a really good, heart-warming read then this is your book. It's wonderfully well-written, with characters who stay with you long after you've finished reading. The story is very believable and you just have to keep reading to find out what happens. Highly recommended.
Revenge and love: it's a thin line...The writing's on the wall for Cleo and Gav. The bedroom wall, to be precise. And it says 'This marriage is over.' Wounded and furious, Cleo embarks on a night out with the girls, which turns into a glorious one night stand with - Justin, centrefold material and irrepressibly irresponsible. He loves a little wildness in a woman - and he's in the right place at the right time to enjoy Cleo's. But it's Cleo who has to pick up the pieces - of a marriage based on a lie and the lasting repercussions of that night. Torn between laid-back Justin and control freak Gav, she's a free spirit that life is trying to tie down. But the rewards are worth it!
