Flynn & Aria Roberts have had plenty of ups and downs during their seven year marriage. Everyone warned them not to wed so young – that they’d be missing out on the key years when people grow from young adults to mature individuals.
The only thing holding them together now is their
love for each other, and even that is becoming questionable.
To save the marriage, and the family they’ve already started, Flynn and Aria come up with an unconventional solution to help them find what’s missing in their relationship.
The only problem is doing so involves rediscovering themselves completely, even if it requires them to be unfaithful.
Can a marriage survive
when vows are broken, or will chance encounters prove they’ve been missing out all-along?
Fulfill your deepest Desires
Give in to Temptation
While still a blubbering mess, I picked up the phone and dialed Flynn’s number. I needed to hear his voice.
He sounded groggy. “Hello?”
“It’s me.” My voice was low to hide my emotions.
“Are you crying?”
It was easier to lie. “No, I’m fine.”
“Aria, you can’t hide that from me. Tell me what’s wrong.”
“There is something wrong with me, Flynn. I’m confused all the time. I keep making one bad decision after another. Maybe I deserve to be alone. Maybe you should have left a long time ago.”
“I stayed because I love you. I might have a shitty way of showing it, but I’ve love you for as long as I can remember. That’s never going to change, even if we’re not together.”
I sobbed on my end of the phone. It was so clear that Flynn was tired of my head games. “I’m so sorry for my part in this.”
“I deserved most of it I suppose. It’s not like I’m perfect. I made mistakes I wish I could take back; mistakes that hurt you beyond belief. I’d do anything to erase the things from your memory, though we both know it’s not possible. I keep thinking about everything, wondering the exact moment when everything went to shit. I talk to Dr. Ellis about this yesterday. She said…”
“Wait. What did you say? You talked to Dr. Ellis yesterday? Was it over the phone?” It was the weekend. She didn’t have office hours. Were my fears about them being together confirmed?
“No, I saw her. She was at the same place I was staying. She showed up yesterday and we went out to dinner.”
I couldn’t hear anymore of this. “I thought we were having a good conversation. I thought it was progress. The truth is you’re never going to change. This call was a mistake, but at least it’s proven you can never be trusted.”
I hung up and turned my phone off so he couldn’t call me back. Determined to leave the house before he could show up and tell me more lies, I started getting ready for the big event. Now more than ever I wanted to rid myself of the hole he’d left in my heart. I was going to go through with my plans, and even guilt wasn’t going to stop me.

Binge is the first book in a NEW series by Jennifer Foor. This series is different from her other ones, because it will be all standalone books that deal with a new couple in each book. The couples will be married and the books are about things that married couples go through in their daily lives. She will show some of the struggles married couples face these days.
Jennifer Foor is one of my ALL TIME favorite authors and I will read anything she writes, but I have to be honest….I was extremely nervous about reading Binge. Based on the blurb, it was going to be covering a topic I consider a hard limit when it comes to the books I enjoy. I was correct….this book took me out of my comfort zone. It was so different from her other books. As with all of her books, Jennifer gives us a story that is intriguing and captivating. Once I started the book I couldn’t put it down. Even though there were times I wanted to stop reading, I just couldn’t. I had to find out how this story would end. I am glad I finished this book, because although I had trouble with parts of it, I truly enjoyed the book.
This story is more about the journey that Aria and Flynn go on in making their relationship better. There was a time in this story that I didn’t like either character and wanted to smack them both upside the head. Flynn it was more because of his past transgressions , but when it came to Aria, she was just making dumb decisions. I was glad to see Aria grow by the end of the book. There was a very logical explanation for her behavior and some of the poor choices she kept making. It all made sense in the end. I was also happy to see Flynn grow as a person during this story. I liked seeing how dedicated he was to Aria, even when she kept pushing him away.
This book truly shows the ups and downs of marriage. And that marriage isn’t always easy, it’s hard work and if you are willing to put in the time and effort, it can totally be worth it in the end.
If you are a fan of Jennifer Foor’s books, I think you should give this book a try. It is so unlike her other series, I think it shows that she can write many different types of stories. To me that is the making of a well rounded author 🙂 I know that when I pick up one of Jennifer’s books, I am in for a treat and that I will end up with a smile on my face in the end 🙂
