I received a copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review and I must say that this was a pretty good book. I know how the topic of adultery can turn off some readers, but this story was a good one even though cheating was involved.
Olivia has been married to Bill for three years now and while at a play, she locks eyes with a total stranger who she comes to find out is David. I truly think in this case, its love at first sight. I almost feel bad for Olivia and David because you kind of want them to hook up already, but at the same time you want to have “morals” and pray that they do the right thing. Cheating is never good regardless of the situation. Olivia’s husband Bill is a pretty straightforward guy but it seems as if he takes his job more seriously than his marriage which I believe is why Olivia took the chances she did in meeting David when she did even if those encounters were innocent. I also didn’t like the fact that Bill lacked the passion that Olivia experienced with David and thought it was okay to just live that way.
Although Olivia gives in for one night, she is utterly torn about what she did and desperately wants to make things right at the expense of her sanity. Overall, this was a good story and it touches a subject that a lot of people can relate to which is unfortunate. I give this 4 out of 5 stars as it was a good book and the plot was there.
