Sandra's first instinct was to burn the anonymous letter. Its malicious message couldn't be true: Do you know where your husband will be tonight? Do you know who he'll be with?

Sandra adored Mark now as much as when they were first married, even though family life meant that they were no longer so close. She'd never dreamed that her tough, handsome husband would fall into t

Harried mother of 3 (all under age 7) is shocked at receiving anonymous letter informing her about husband cheating on her. She's 1st unsure whether to believe it but, when she sees husband with his arm around Other Woman's waist, she decides to fight for him. Heroine realizes that she hasn't been there for hero in the last 2 yrs since before their handful 2-yr-old was born. When confronted, hero confessed to "almost" being in love with OW but not having had sex with her. He blames heroine for n ...more
Intense Emotional Read,the thing that spoiled the book for me was H was such a selfish immature jerk,he very cordially put all the blame on his wife for his straying,i wanted severe grovelling was disappointed was through the book h was shown doormat taking all garbage behaviour from H,i completely understand she was at fault too-she realized her mistakes and she wanted to save her marriage but at the cost of your self-respect-this i could'nt digest,also she should have made him grovel but she g ...more
I read this one years ago. While it is true that the h was busy with their 2year old and so 'neglected' the H, that is no excuse to 'almost' get intimate with someone else. I mean what an ass. I would have liked it more had the H been contrite instead of 'Oh its your fault I acted like a jerk'.
The Marriage War was a sad read. I was not happy with the way, the book turned out.

The hero of this book, was really selfish, self-centered character. I did NOT like at all! I also did not like the way the heroine reacted when she discovered that her husband was semi-unfaithful to her. Why "semi-unfaithful"? Because although, he does not sleep with the Other Woman, he still lets her in his heart, which should have wholly belonged to his WIFE. His reason for doing so? Because, his wife paid no a
Dating someone else is cheating, dipshit. The fact you think it's cheating only when you put your dick in another woman says everything the reader needs to know about your lack of intelligence. I wanted the h to castrate the H. That is not the way a romance book should make you feel.
This was an okay read not as good as her other books. Sandra is a poor over stressed mother of 3 (yikes!) all under the age of 7 (double yikes!) with no help from the husband. She has been so stressed after the birth of their daughter she has not had time for romance with her husband. They planned these children together but is seems like she has given up her pleasures for their kids. Poor husband is feeling neglected and instead of helping his wife he starts flirting with a young woman at work. ...more
This is such a wonderful love story between a husband and wife. NOT!

Main characters in the story:

Husband. The poor darling has been working soooooo hard and is under pressure at work. The wife is not giving him any attention so he turns to his very attractive, twenty something years old assistant for comfort and understanding.

OW. The stereotypical ow who is evil, manipulative and out to sink her claws into the helpless husband.

Wife. Full time mother to three children under six, the poor woman ha
The 1st time I read this book I hated it! But I couldn't remember why so I decided to punish myself and read it again.

I think what was missing for me, and the reason I disliked this book so much was, love. I didn't feel the love. Our Hero didn't seem to love his wife, his children( he especially disliked the children) or his mistress. The heroines sister didnt seem to love her much. And our heroine, well.. I guess she loved her children, but the Hero? I didn't buy it. She was desperate to keep h
I love Charlotte Lamb, but the hero in this book is one of her worst.

No stars for this book I hated the male lead the guy was just nasty I mean how could he even think about having an affair and then on top of that admitting that he was on the verge of falling for the other woman and they got physical enough that he nearly slept with her! As far as I am concerned he was unfaithful in everything but the actual act and even then he admitted they did s lot of touching it doesn't say much when a man who feels neglected cos his wife is too busy looking after his child ...more
It was crap. Cheating is cheating. No matter how unhappy before the hero even checked out of the marriage, he should of talked to the heroine. To let all that come between them and for the heroine to just take it all and not say "DIVORCE!!" is downright PATHETIC!
This book has exactly the same plot as The Ultimate Betrayal
by Michelle Reid
, I was puzzled! They even have 3 kids, been married for 7 years, he almost cheated her with his assistant. I hated his guts!
3.5 stars. Nice angsty read, but can't compare to A Perfect Marriage.
I like the book but i hated Mark!
He is such a scumbag! He didn't trust his wife but trusted the OW and he was soo adamant that the OW was a kindddd lady xD
