ARC What a wonderful book. The story of Zack and Lydia is already over when you begin reading it, but we have to go along for the ride to see what a bitch see really is. Zack does everything in his power to save his family and his marriage, but Lydia is such a micromanager that she only sees what she wants to see.

I want to like this book I so really do but I struggled to get through every page. I think one of the main reasons it was so difficult is it went on and on about Zach's life and problems in too great of detail. I understand he was unhappy and things with going wrong with his relationship with his wife and also struggled making ends meet but as I read chapter after chapter about it I felt it was a pity party rather than a soon to be romance novel.

I truly hate giving low reviews becaus

A clear and dramatic picture of current crisis of our society, layoff, family abuse.I think that the Zack's story is too agonizing,also if his meeting with Claire lightens the plot a bit.

I liked it but 50% of the book is Zach dealing with his horrible wife.
Then the end was so quick to the HEA.

Great books, a couple of fantastic teachers, and growing up on a mid-western farm surrounded by old farmer tales pointed me toward writing. I sharpened my worldliness through the sparking grindstone of an Automotive Engineering career where I worked with all management levels in large and small global corporations. This imparts earthiness and technology into my tales.
