Twenty-three year old, Kamryn Cunningham has left all she’s ever known and moved to a small town where no one knows her name, who her parents are, or her social status in the horseracing world. Months after opening her own bakery and evading attempts of being set up by her new best friend, she meets Brody. Kamryn fights the instant pull between them because there’s a detail she can’t dismiss. Brody’s married.
To say that twenty-six year old, Brody Saco has had a rough marriage would be an understatement. After marrying his pregnant girlfriend, he spends the next six years in a relationship filled with hatred, manipulation and guilt involving a tragedy that happened five years earlier. When he keeps running into his sister-in-law’s best friend, Kamryn, he can’t ignore that she makes him feel more with just one look than his wife ever has; and soon he can’t continue fight his feelings for her.
When staying apart proves to be too difficult, Brody and Kamryn enter a relationship full of stolen moments and nights that end too soon while they wait for Brody to file for divorce. But the guilt that comes with their relationship may prove to be too much for Kamryn, and Brody might not be strong enough to face the tragedy from his past in order to leave his conniving wife.
“One day everyone will know. One day it will just be you and me. One day this will all be behind us.”
“Sharing You” is the first Molly McAdams book that I’ve read since Taking Chances, so I admit I was a little scared going into it. This was an angst filled romance that kept me turning the pages. Even though their relationship didn’t start out in the most conventional way, I absolutely wanted KC and Brody together.
Kamryn aka KC, was from a wealthy Kentucky derby family. She was a sweet and loving girl and the complete opposite of those around her. Her parents and her boyfriend had every aspect of her life planned out for her. There was no regard to what she wanted in life and needed to escape that life, so she fled. Eught months later she’s in Oregon and she able to start a whole new life for herself. She owned the bakery of her dreams and she had her best friends Kinlee and Kinlee’s husband Jace.
Brody was stuck in an unhappy marriage. He thought he had married for the right reasons but then a tragedy struck and things fell apart even more. Five years later, things had become even worse between him and Olivia. Their relationship was draining him and the things Olivia would say and do were down right awful. He didn’t want to married to her but guilt kept him in the marriage.
“He was looking at me as if he’d just found what he’d been looking for- and the look as so open, so intense, it sent a shiver running down my spine. It should have scared me, but it somehow felt like what I was looking at was a reflection of what I was feeling…Yeah, I’d found everything I’d never even know I was looking for…in him.”
From the very first moment that KC and Brody meet, there was an intense attraction. I could feel it on a visceral level. Neither had ever felt that way about anyone but neither knew what to do with their feelings. KC didn’t want to be responsible for breaking up a marriage and Brody didn’t want to hurt KC by asking her to wait from him. Being around Kamryn was the first time Brody felt alive in years. Ultimately the two couldn’t stay away from each other. Every time they were near each other, their attraction and feelings grew.
“If it’s you Brody, then I want It all.”
“There are just times when I need to hear your voice. I need to be able to talk to you because I can’t see you…and I just need you”
I knew them being together wasn’t necessarily right but the feeling and chemistry they had, just couldn’t be denied. I wanted them together but things were not that easy. His wife, his guilt, Kamyrn’s past and all the lies they had to tell to be together was so difficult for them both. I loved Brody and I sympathized with him, but I was oh so frustrated with him. I hated that he harbored so much guilt over his wife’s state of mind. I wanted him to see what she doing to him wasn’t right and truly get to move on with KC.
Molly wrote the story beautifully. I truly sympathized with these characters and I went through every emotion while I read this book. There were moments when I wanted to toss my kindle in frustration, but in the end was it was so worth it. I definitely recommend this book but I would say anyone who reads it should go in with an open mind. It was sweet, it was real, and I enjoyed it so much.
