  16. 4.5 Out of my Comfort Zone stars I have always been a fan of Lisa DeJong the first book I read by her, When It Rains, was the first book to ever make me cry When presented with an opportunity to read her new work in advance I jumped at the opportunity with no idea what it was even about About 20 pages into the read I was starting to sweat to worry about the content as I was getting the feel of one woman, her husband, and a mysteriously sexy stranger and how 3 is always a crowd Keeping it brief M [...]

  17. Let s see This wasn t mind blowing as I expected, but it didn t let me down either It was a good story but I think the author could have added it a few twists to make it even interesting.I mean the plot is about a selfish prick of husband that is interested in guarding his money than paying attention to his wife, and a wife that I was willing to slap hard cause she wouldn t find her own courage to open her mouth and say a few little truths to her dear hubby and a f cking handsome bachelor tha [...]

  18. When you strip this down to the base storyline it s a simple concept that has been done a lot before The difference here is that this one was coated in gold it s woven together with real talent and presented like a gourmet dish It kicks you in the stomach and makes your heart ache I went through a bit of every emotion possible while reading this It was a rollercoaster ride, but it s turned me into an adrenaline junkie It s not an easy or a particularly pleasant read, it hurts in places and makes [...]

  20. ARC received in exchange for an honest review Now able to somewhat write my reviewI just want to address something first I think if this book receives bad reviews it will mostly be on the grounds that they will argue that the author writes about infidelity and adultery and doesn t respect that sanctity of marriage and blah blah blahPlease let me point out that this is a piece of FICTION And a damn good one at that If you enjoy love triangles and angst and mystery and sexiness then you will ADORE [...]

  22. When I first saw the blurb for Break Even I was chomping to get my grubby hands on it, and it was than worth the wait This is the first book I have read in a long time where I wished it was a paperback instead of an ebook so I could flip through the pages for spoilers, I was that damn worked up about where the author was going to take this I had palpitations, the twists and turns left me sat there scratching my head at times and I had a fair few no ways moments whilst reading it I read this in [...]

It s been a while since I ve been able to say this upfront and totally without reservation I LOVED THIS BOOK FROM THE FIRST PAGE THROUGH THE LAST Every word and every moment, good times or bad, felt meaningful and real The plot was well defined and certainly full of enough surprises keeping it fast paced and enthralling Most likely the triangle effect will give some readers a yellow light and I m not particularly fond of cheating or triangles myself But this doesn t feel like the typical triangl [...]
