My name is Kennedy Brooks and you're not going to like me. Chances are you may even hate me, and that's okay, there are times I do too.
I had choices, we all do, the ones that I made changed everything.
Before I knew it, the lines of right and wrong began to blur and I was consumed so deeply that I couldn't see a way out even if I wanted to.
The path I chose is not for

Without a doubt the name speaks for itself. This is a book for open minded individuals. If you're against cheating, please, please, do not read this book. This isn't simply about cheating. It's about self-sacrifice, inhibitions, communication, friendship and love.

It centres around 5 childhood friends. Mainly the married friends within the group- Gunner and Kennedy. These two have been married for ten years, and friends for over twenty. Their relationship is filled with love, intimacy- sexual and

HOMEWRECKER...well that title alone should give you a general idea of what kind of book you are diving into. If you hate cheating in marriages, then I will forewarn you that this book has lots of extramarital affairs. Keeping that in mind, I totally dove into this book knowing that my heart and emotions will be put to a test.

First and foremost, I must tell you that this is NOT a conventional love story with the normal happily ever after as

Well I'm speechless. I've just finished reading this and all I can say is wow. The title gave me some expectations but these two authors blew them expectations out of the water. Just when I thought I knew what way the story was gonna go these authors twisted it completely.

This is a story about cheating and friendship. There is no excuse for cheating whatsoever. However this book was different than other books with a cheating storyline. It surprised me that I didn't dislike any of the

In life we grow comfortable with our friends and families. Comfortable with our routines, work and love life. But what happens when the marriage to your high school sweetheart has lost its still feel that all consuming love filled in your heart for him, but something is missing...his touch still sizzles your skin- when he touches you.

This book has got to be one of my favorites. I'm giving this book 5 's First let me say that this book has it all. Drama heartache tears and love. I loved how in this book you get a sense of brotherhood friendship and family. Through everything these characters went through they still managed to come out with all of those things intact even when you didn't think they would. When you think you know where this book is going it takes you in a totally different direction. This

I seriously am at a loss of words. I’ve read both Katheryn’s and Cat’s books, and the fact that they never thought to write a dual book before this kind of upsets me. OMGGGGG…. First let me explain that I am very much aware that this review will not do this book justice. I can’t even figure out the words to explain how freaking much I loved this book. OMG OMG OMG

I guess I have to try right? Ok so number one... when I read the title to the book I almost died… I know the writing style of these two

I loved this book!!! The title says a lot but... It's not what you think! This book has some hilarious LOL moments. The sexy parts don't suck either! As much as I loved it, I didn't find the ending realistic. Having said that, it's a book, a story, and you can write whatever you want. I still loved it. Stories aren't always "realistic" and I don't need them to be to enjoy them.

This is the first book I've read by either Author, Bravo Ladies!!!

I'll be expecting a lot from book 2 :)

Cat Mason is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors! When I was offered this book for an honest review I knew I couldn't turn it down.

When you read the title I know what you are thinking.... another book about a girl who falls in love with the wrong and ruins everything for everyone for a while until it all comes together! WRONG yes you are wrong! That is not this book...
We meet a group of 4 very different friends whom have been friend for forever now.

Homewrecker by Cat Mason and Katheryn Kiden

I received a Arc copy of this book for a honest review

Kennedy seemly has it all: a great job where she sees her best friends everyday and a 10 yr marriage to the man she loves, but below the surface there's something missing.
Gunnar is Kennedy's husband and high school sweetheart. The one thing he could always trust was that his love for her was stronger than anything.
Marriage is wonderful, but as any married woman knows your taste in the bedroom may

I was very hesitant to read this story initially. Just based on the title and blurb, I knew that it would test my moral compass. I was right.

By the time I got 20% into this book I was struggling with the content and storyline but I pressed on anyway and I'm glad I did. I got caught up in the moments and the 'edge of your seat' aspect of the choices being made. I was freaking out most of the time, worried about what was going to happen when the shite hit the fan.

I really liked Gunnar, he was so

Homewrecker was my first read from either one of these authors. I was a bit nervous going into it for that reason combined with not being a big fan of cheating in my past reads. I was hoping that these authors were able to bring me through it without throwing the Kindle across the room. Well they sure did! I am SO glad that I gave this one a chance. I loved it!

This story is full of emotions. Heartbreak, regret, humor, forbidden attraction, and lots and lots of steamy sex. This book had me all

omg I knew I would be speechless reading this book but omg. This is a book that I feel every woman thinks about at some point in their lives. Kennedy loves her husband Gunner more than anything but often feels somthing is missing, his sweet, caring and soft and sometimes soft isn't what she's wanting and sh knows deep down he doesn't want to be soft but she can't get him to give himself 100%, so Kennedy fines what's missing

Wow! What can I say about this book? I have no issue with books on cheating, and this one was clearly marketed as being that, so if anyone had a problem with the plot, they didn't read the synopsis. I really liked Kennedy; and I didn't feel any animosity towards her at all. I loved the steamy sex scenes, and I get why she was so drawn to Dixon. She truly had it all until she was busted, that is. That portion of the book gutted me; the pain of all those involved was so beautifully told. Raw ...more
Hard one to rate since I enjoyed the story but I'm not a fan of cheating. However I never disliked either of the cheaters so I guess it deserves my appreciation.

Her husband loved her to death, she loved him with every fibre of her being but felt something was missing in their sex life. You'd think after being together 20 years they'd feel comfortable enough to tell each other anything.

Unconventional Bliss

Here's my review. Hope it's okay. What do I do next? Lol. I'll get the hang of this soon, I promise.

Unconventional Bliss!!! Homewrecker will pull you in and make you think outside the relationship box all while making you blush scarlet! Imagine the perfect filthy talking Alpha Male AND the sweet and savory Boy Next Door at the same time literally.

It's the typical small town circle of friends romance. Gunnar and Kennedy have known each other practically their entire lives and

HOMEWRECKER is the first book in the Into the Flames series. This is a stand-alone contemporary romance. It was released in 2015 and there hasn’t been a second book.

From the beginning, Kennedy says you may not like her. You may hate her. She’s right! She cheated on her husband, repeatedly! Her husband, Gunnar’s best friend, Dixon claims he has loved her since they were just kids, but never spoke up before.

Still, this story isn’t simply about cheating and choosing. If you think you know what

This is the first book I have read by Cat Mason or Katheryn Kiden and I am glad I did. I read the synopsis and I knew I had to read it. Yes, it's about cheating but she owned it and knew people wouldn't like her for it. It was also different and I love different, it makes me want to read even more.

Gunnar and Kennedy have been married for 10 years but together for what seems like a lifetime. Kennedy loves Gunnar but lately she has felt that there is something missing, she needs him to stop

WOW!! Let me tell you the book Homewrecker by Cat Mason and Katheryn Kiden is a fantastic book!! The title isn't what this book is about either, so you end up going into this book thinking it will be about one thing and it completely changes half way through.

Ok so before I get to my feelings on this book, I will be the first to admit that cheating in a no go for me in books... BUT. Yeah there is that big BUT... sometimes there is more than it appears on the surface. I was hesitant to review this book because it has a hard limit in it but I love Cat Mason and her books effing rock so I decided to go for it. All balls in and just do it because hey we only live once. And let me tell you... BEST DECISION EVER!

I love Cat Masons books but have never read anything by Katheryn Kiden so I was excited to see how the 2 authors writing would mesh together and I was curious to see if both writing styles worked together.
The synopsis didn't really give anything away about the book, so I felt I was going in to the story completely blind. As the synopsis doesnt give much away I'm not going to let on to what the book is about. A big part of the excitement was diving in to the unknown and watching the story

Homewrecker by Cat Mason and Katheryn Kiden is, I'd have to say, a very adult book in more ways than one.

The blurb starts off with the line "My name is Kennedy Brooks and you're not going to like me. Chances are you may even hate me, and that's okay, there are times I do too.", but the truth is I really did like Kennedy. There were times where I felt like I wanted to dislike her just a bit ... but I couldn't.

Following her story, her perspective, as we move through her journey, I find it hard to

A 5 Star review is not enough, this deserves so many more.

Homewrecker is a book that will not give your everyday happily ever after
you all expect.

What happens when after 10yrs of marriage to your childhood sweetheart is
not enough to set the sheets on fire anymore, when you have had enough of
being treated as fragile and can feel his holding back on you? Yep Kennedy

I’m going to start off by saying that I do not typically read cheating books. Yes, I know by the title of the book that this book is in fact about cheating, but I decided to give it a chance as it was on my reading list for an upcoming signing. Did it bother me morally that this book revolves about a cheating spouse? Yes, but I didn’t discount the book based on that fact alone. The story itself was erotically pleasing and exciting. I honestly enjoyed the story and plot itself. I think had it
