did not like it

Infidelity galore.

After his marriage, the hero continued daily trysts with his long-time mistress supposedly because, he wanted to show his colleagues that he's not sexual deviant like his late father. Yeah, right, as if jumping from the conjugal bed to the office desk was more palatable conduct than his deceased father's.

And then, for revenge, the heroine engaged in her own liaisons in Paris to shock husband into fetching her. Not content with that, she further raised eyebrows upon arriving in London with her private chess matches with husband's friend.

Pathetic, much?

Marriage Counseling 101: Mature grown ups don't engage in these destructive games of tit-for-tat.

So much punches and counterpunches have been made that in the end, it no longer matters who started what or who caused the most damaged or why they're even fighting after nine years. Both of them should be banished to their rooms without supper.

It's fortunate that this isn't my first foray into EJ world; otherwise, I would have missed her better books.

message 2: by Booklover (new)

Booklover Claire EJ's most of the books have Infedility and all the wife's indulge themselves in scandals and liasions to get their husband's attention
