Going into this book, I didn't realized it touched on the once huge subject I try to steer clear of in fiction: infidelity. That being said I am giving it 4 stars.
The book makes me remember that you can't pick who you love. It just happens. I was very happy with the outcome of the book and the second half of the book was much better than the first half.
The sex scenes were the only problem I had. The first is quite descriptive, in a not so good way. Quotes like: "Micheal envisioned the other man inside him, bollocks to buttocks, penis buried inside Micheals intestine and head pushed in feces." or "Brown-stained member". Or the fact that they have unprotected sex after (view spoiler). I just want to scream What the hell is wrong with you!!!
So regardless of all that the book still deserves the 4 stars I am giving it. It was good, kept my interest, it was heartwarming and it made me feel good.

ElaineY Um...thank you. I was just about to buy it when I read your quotes. I'm now battling images of a cockhead smeared with shit, strangled by intestines and surrounded by little herpes demons ready to attack.

Amanda The book was really good, there were just a few descriptive sex scenes. I do have to say it's the first time I've read a book like that.

Jaime LMAO @Elaine! Now I'm picturing herpes demons.

Amanda, there's 'descriptive' and there's 'descriptive'. Seriously, I wouldn't be able to take a book with those types of description seriously...or if I did, I'd be very put off. I'm glad you liked it, though. Maybe I can rustle up a reading friend who'll test-read it for me first.

Thank you again, for your very useful, succinct review. I wish more reviews were like yours.
