Millie has struggled over the years to keep the spark alive in her relationship. Starting at a young age her life has been a series of trials and tribulations, and it’s only getting more complicated. She’s followed stepping stones that she wasn’t always sure were leading her in the right direction, causing her to wonder if she is on the right path.
Her husband, Brian, loves her dearly, but has a poor way of showing it. Stress easily beats him down, and his own protective nature seems to fight against him. He’s shutting down, virtually ignoring and alienating the people around him when they need him the most.
Millie lost her job and they’re about to lose the house. On the verge of losing it all, she questions everything. Where did it all go wrong? How did they get to this point? However, the answers could be more unsettling than anticipated.
Hearts will be broken when long held secrets are revealed. Is a chance at happiness worth the destruction it leaves in its wake? Is it worth the risk? Worth the pain for everyone involved? Worth the effort? Is she somebody worth it?
**A review copy was received from the author for an honest review**
Holy freaking cliffhanger!!! Where the hell did that come from??!!?? Everything I thought about this story was just blown to shit…in a matter of seconds. I really am speechless. Give me a few minutes and then I will continue this review.
“We were sinking like the Titanic, and just like those people, we didn’t have enough life jackets to keep us from going under.”
Well, now that I have picked up my jaw and taken in all that happened, I will say that I very much enjoyed this story. Millie and Brian’s story is one of frustration, sex (lots of sex), and heartbreak. I swear if they weren’t fighting, they were fucking! Which means, I read this story in almost one sitting. Yep, I couldn’t put it down. But, truthfully, there were times that I was so annoyed with Millie that I wondered why I didn’t put my kindle down and walk away from it for a few hours. I found myself feeling sorry for Brian a few times and then I would be like, WTF for!!! Ugh…I just wanted to knock the both of them upside their heads. The hot and cold they had going on made me crazy. There was no in-between with these two. It was only the way or nothing at all. But, the hot was HOT when they were hot 😉
Then, because these two don’t already have enough drama going on, in walks Dean. I am not sure what to say about Dean. By the time he enters the story, I was already so damn frustrated with Millie and Brian, that I hardly gave him a second thought until towards the end. What a freakin’ mess these three have on their hands, but I gotta give it to the author by saying I was hooked. I couldn’t go on with life till I knew how things worked out.
“You didn’t have to give up on our marriage. You ruined it.”
Then when I thought everything was finally going to settle down and I could see the HEA in the distance, THE ENDING HAPPENED!!!! I cursed and I pouted, but now I have decided I must get over it and hope that I don’t have to wait very long to see what comes next for Millie, Brian, and Dean 🙂
