This Lamb book was definitely emotionally involving. I'm not a fan of cheating books but the way this story unfolded was riveting. The hero was such an immature, selfish & deceitful jerk (and his role as parent is a whole other matter) & the heroine a codependent doormat. It was like watching 2 cars you know are about to collide. I. Could. Not. Look. Away. I was astounded & disgusted that heroine would own the blame for their marriage failing & his cheating & lying to herself. And for her to get aroused by seeing him naked, right after being so anguished the whole night at the thought that he was with the OW before he came home...Not sexy at all. Despite that & the fact that hero only seems physically attracted to heroine when she's more dressed up, Lamb still made their sexual chemistry seem hot. I wish that OW wasn't portrayed as a crazy villain towards the 2nd half. It would have made hero's choice more challenging & enlightening about their future.
Recommended if you can stand the emotional cheating & blame game.
