You have a handsome husband Aiden and a gorgeous little boy Josh. You should be on top of the world, shouldn’t you? Something is bugging you and even though your significant half assures you everything is perfect, you know it’s not true. What can be the matter? One day you make him come clean, and it’s not what you wanted to hear, not at all…
What would you do when your husband would confess something like this? Would you stick by him or would part ways with him? Would you turn your life upside down or would you cut your losses?
After all there is not only you, you have to think about. Would this alter your decision?
This is what Emily has to take in consideration. She is determined to take up the reigns and hopes for the best.
And she was right. Everything is almost perfect now. Only one thing missing, but she has figured out a way to solve that too. Life can only get better now, right?
I am used to the author surprising me with the outcome, but this time I thought I was more clever. Haha, good one. I must say I had figured something out, but boy oh boy she still had me in the end.
I really enjoyed this book, but that’s not unexpected. I know this author always amazes me with her great storytelling. 5 stars
