bookshelves: married-established-couple, ocean-sea-beach, hawaii

Almost all of the stories I’ve read so far in Don't Read in the Closet: Volume Four collection are about finding love, or starting a relationship.

I was glad when I read in the blurb that Swept Away is about an established couple and their fifteenth anniversary.

I don’t know what I expected but not this, that’s for sure.

Mike and Eddie's usual way of celebrating their anniversary - (view spoiler) - was really disturbing. No wonder Eddie is sick of it.

The very unromantic way of how they met and fell in love made it even worse: (view spoiler) But they stayed together for fifteen years after that, so I’m trying not to be judgmental – with no success, apparently…

So apart from – or because of – these things they didn’t seem to be a great couple. They weren’t in synch, there was no connection or affection between them. Their relationship was dying.

There was nothing in this story I liked. It wasn’t sweet, romantic or hot. I expected more…
