Is the grass always greener on the other side of the fence? This question continued to swirl around as I was reading. I wanted to shake Evangeline so many times and yell at her, "The grass is greener where you water!" I felt for her, but was also annoyed with her.
The story drew me in and had me hooked. I didn't want to put the book down because I had to know who she was going to choose. I was waiting for her to realize she has a wonderfully happy life. A life she had created with a loving and supportive husband (Cole). I kept waiting for her to realize a lustful crush (Jake) is just that and walk away.
She continued to blur the line between right and wrong and tiptoe over and come back. I think once she blurred the line enough there was no more line. It became a free for all. I can't help but wonder if Cole had played the jealousy card with her if her actions and feelings would have been different. Would she see him in a new light when his attention was somewhere other than her. It was almost like she knew she could hurt Cole, but it would be okay because he was so nice. He would forgive her. After all, she knew he suspected something and still continued with her cat and mouse game.
The story was very steamy, but it wasn't the central theme. The emotions of love, betrayal, heartbreak, and loss were the focus. The ending gutted me, so I am not ready for book 2.
Even after all that I can say this is a solid 🌟🌟🌟🌟 star book. It hooked me!
