ABOUT THE BOOK:
Our world was crumbling. You took advantage.
He was weak. You’re weaker.
A wedding ring isn’t a challenge. It’s a promise.
But that promise wasn’t for you.
Get some self respect. And get your own life.
My husband isn’t yours.
And no matter how hard you try, you’ll never be me.
You don’t have the balls.
Wow what a book! Tessa seems to have it all. A handsome husband, a great job, a beautiful home, 3 amazing children, and a lot of money. Her husband Ethan travels a lot for business, and one weekend Tessa drops her children off at her parents home so she can have a weekend alone with her husband. He is due to arrive back home from his recent work trip later that evening. Tessa is excited and cannot wait to have some alone time with her husband.
While driving back to their home hours away to prepare for her husbands arrival, he calls to let her know that he is sorry but he has to extend his trip to secure a business deal and will not be back that evening. Tessa is devastated, she was so looking forward to spending this weekend with her husband and had everything all planned out.
When Tessa gets home, she picks up her husbands ipad and sees a text from a strange woman. Her name is Lindsey. What the heck is going on? Who is this woman? Tessa quickly learns that her husband appears to be having an affair and her whole world as she knows it comes crumbling down.
This story is told in alternate points of view. Tessa’s POV in the present and Lindsey;s POV in the past. I enjoyed the way this was done to give us some background information on Lindsey and how she met Ethan. It was interesting to read how her story evolved and to hear things from her perspective.
Nothing is as it seems, and both women are ready to fight for the man they love. Who will win? The wife or the mistress? Will one come out on top, will they stay with Ethan? Both are ready for the fight of their life, and both are determined to be the winner. A nail biting, vindictive novel full of lies, secrets, and the ultimate betrayal. A great book!
MY RATING: 4/5 stars
