A love triangle gone bad...
He was the one guy I couldn't get enough of. One look from him would make me melt. He was the one I always wanted to love me, but always seemed so far away. Now he stands before me and he's turning my world upside down.
At one time I would have done anything to be close to him. But will that anything include betraying the man I pledged myself to and that loves me faithfully?
Samantha Monroe had it all. Or at least everyone thought she did. A career on the rise, a gorgeous husband, great friends and a beautiful home. So why does she feel so alone and empty? When she reconnects with an old flame, lines are tested and compromises made in a quest for happiness.
Jacob Matthews always wondered what happened to Sam Monroe. When fate brings them together after all these years, he can't help but wonder if its meant to be. But when he meets his perfect woman, there is no doubt in his mind she's his soul mate.
Will the search for happiness cost them everything or will their love square show them what really matters?
Love triangles, I love them and I hate, and I love to hate them, but man can they be good!
My only requirement is that I have to like the other guy and welp I loved Jacob. Sigh, I still do. This was love triangle but with a very different twist…
“Being happy and being able to look at your self in the mirror while doing it is a delicate balance”
After 10 years together author Sam Parker and her husband Aiden are at a low point in their marriage. Their not communicating and the intimacy is gone. Sam and Aiden are more roommates than lovers. After running into her old high school boyfriend Jacob, Sam and Jacob reconnect over drinks. Everything starts off innocently enough but things quickly escalate into steamy exchanges through email and texting. Eventually feeling frustrated, neglected, and unloved Sam gives into temptation and turns to Jacob to comfort that she has been lacking. While it wasn’t right I understood how she got to that point. The sexual chemistry between her Jacob was absolutely undeniable. There were some truly steamy loves scenes.
The more Sam tries to deny her growing feelings for Jake the harder Jake seems to fall. Sam struggles with her guilt over her affair and does try to break things off but Jacob has always had a control over her and she keeps going back each time. When Aiden finally tries to repair their marriage, Sam is left with decision of whom to choose. Does she give up the comfort that she knows and leave Aiden? Or does she leave behind the new intense feelings for Jake and stay with Aiden?
There were times that I truly wanted to yell at Sam to grow up, make a decision, and to stop the back and forth. Yet, I somehow understood how hard it was for it her to choose. There were a lot of emotions at play but I felt the author wrote the story in a real way, because truthfully these type of situations aren’t clean-cut.
There were a few twist to the story that I didn’t expect but it added to the story dynamic. The very last twist at the end stunned me. I truly did not see it coming but fun twist.
