Let me start by saying, that if you don’t like affair books…. then this book definitely isn’t for you. I know its obvious, but in case you got this far and didn’t know the title of the book. You don’t want this one.
I’m not generally into this type of book, but I loved Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens and I read the blurb for Torrid Affair and thought it sounded really interesting. It was soooo good!
Part I of the book was the best part, and also the longest. It’s full of all the swoon-worthy moments that make you fall in love with the characters and their relationship. It’s where you learn to root for them and you feel their heartbreak. And you want to throw your Kindle…. more than once. Part I is from when they were in college.
Part II and III weren’t as good for me as Part I, but they are also much shorter as both of them together take up less than half the book. Obviously they were still good, as i finished the book in less than 2 days, but the characters are a decade older, and not necessarily wiser. I occasionally cry during books, but near the end of this one I was just sitting at the kitchen table while my kids were playing Xbox and the tears were streaming down my face. Luckily I have little boys, so they didn’t even notice, but this story and all the decisions made, tore at my heart.
I would recommend this book for anyone that can handle and enjoy a book with a major emphasis on an affair.
I received a copy of this book from Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
The life I have lived for the past ten years is built solely on lies and secrets.
But I can’t help myself.
I’m in love with two different men. And one of them is my brother-in-law.
He’s my drug. My fire. My addiction.
But he’s married to my best friend. And I’m married to my husband.
I’m not ashamed. I have no guilt.
I’m not fucked. I’m a fucked up person.
This is the story of how I ruined my life.
