I never thought I’d risk my true… my everything, but one mistake can change lives. True love is undeniable… but is it forever?

Alex Turner was my true… my husband, the father of my children, the man of my dreams. But what happens when that isn’t enough anymore?

I knew something was different about Justin Rich. The way his eyes lingered a little longer on places they shouldn’t, his brazenness and suggestive double meanings excited me. I knew I was flirting with danger but I couldn’t seem to stop myself.

True love can make your heart soar. Secrets and lies can break it.

*includes hot sexual situations and the topic of infidelity*

***Stephenee- #NerdGirlSteph’s  Review***
This is my first time reading author Gwendolyn Grace, but it will not be my last time!  She captured my attention right from the very start of the book and it didn’t waiver once.  The story, characters, situations and emotions draw the reader in and doesn’t want to let them go.  Even after finishing the book the reader will be asking themselves questions, thinking about the characters and trying to figure out what next.  The author made the characters so complex and in depth that they could be anyone – you, your best friend, the neighbors – they are so down to earth and so realistic that you feel like you are part of the story with them.

Alex and Courtney knew from the start that they were each others “true” – but life happens and things get in the way, kids come along and before they realize what has happened life is turned upside down.  The author spins the tale so well and so smooth that the reader never realizes that hours have passed and they haven’t moved from their spot because they are glued to the story.  The plot has twists, turns, loops and curves that no one can see coming – but once they hit the reader realizes that this could be them, their life, their mistakes.  It is an emotionally packed story and one that the reader will have a hard time forgetting about, even as they move on to the next book.

This is one story that you must read this year!  It will leave you emotionally spent, wanting more, and wondering how things have gotten to this point, but it is one that the reader will look back on throughout their lives and think about when they are in certain situations. Make sure that you add this one to your TBR list and soon – you don’t want to miss out on it!!
