And to think I almost didn't read it. When I read the synopsis months ago, I didn't find it that interesting and only read it because I was interested in book 2 and wanted to get the back story of Jensen and Mia.
Oliver and Estelle's story totally captured me and I loved everything about it. It is exactly what I look for in a contemporary romance.
*note* I shelved it as left hanging, I need more, not because I was left hanging, the story wraps up nicely, but I wanted more. I wasn't ready to be done.

I really enjoyed this book, so much that read it in one sitting and the immediately started the novella that continues Alex and Courtney's story.
I am really surprised none of my friends have read this book and only has added it to their tbr pile.
Alex and Courtney have been married for 10 years with two young daughters. Soon the two become disconnected in a way that strains their relationship.
I really wanted to hate Courtney. And there were definitely times I wanted to strangle her, but mostly I felt for her. Sometimes in marriage, it is easy to become disconnected, to not talk about your feeling with your spouse, and become detached.
When another man starts showing compassion and affection to Courtney will she risks her marriage? Will she take it to far?
Since this book is written in Courtney POV it was hard to figure out what was going on with Alex. Courtney seemed to think he is was acting suspicious and came to the conclusion that he was having an affair. I understood her suspicions, Alex was away on business trips frequently and hardly called her when he was away. However, I think the two could of overcome this with being "true" to one another.
I admit, I became a little disgruntled with the story and around the 75% mark became worried about what the future hold for them, so much that I looked for spoilers to halt my worries.
While I ended up really enjoying this, I would only recommend this to friends who do not have an issue of reading topics of infidelity.

The first one I though was okay, the second I liked a little more, and this one was icing on the cake! I absolutely loved this book, adored it, want more of it!
I loved Zack and Kate. I loved how Zack wasn't the typical sports hero banging everything around him. I loved how Kate wasn't the typical heroine, she was smart, dorky, and an incredible heroine. I loved her relationship with Ben.
I can't wait to read Ryker's story and the I will go and read Alex and Garret's book!
Those are the first seven thoughts I had after reading this book.
Being that I read many books a year, I know the difference between reality and a book of fiction. But this book, the characters, the story, the superb writing made me feel like I was living in Jensen and Mia's world.
I can go on and on about my love for not only this book, but Kaleidoscope Hearts as well.
If I was a re-reader this would be re-read 1000 times.
