FRAYED SILK: A full length, stand alone romance novel by Ella Fields

I went into this knowing that my heart would be torn in two, slayed in half, an emotional ride that would wreck havoc on my very being and that’s what Ella Fields delivered in a heartbeat. That first page grabs you unexpectedly, a wife, a mother to two adorable children, a woman struggling to get through to her husband, a marriage of ten years crumbling down around her feet, a man that hasn’t touched or offered her kind words in months she’s at her wits end questioning what have I done? 

Choices she makes that necessarily wouldn’t be our own you still can’t help but connect with her character, you feel exactly what she’s going through, her struggles, her heart break, her deceit, but is it so wrong when her husband tells her to do what she wants? My heart literally broke and I wanted to shake Leo and wake him up to what he could potentially be throwing away. 

I'm still madly. stupidly, and irrevocably in love with him. 

Where did everything for this couple start going so wrong?

BUT THEN I got to the very gist of the story, the raw, sad story of what had happened to Leo and my heart was torn in two, kind, gentle Leo, he held my heart in the palm of his hand, I fell for his character, I cried over the injustice of what happened to him.

But slowly as only this author can do I was mended as I raced through the pages towards the HEA I was hoping for. 

I'd been in a book funk since reading 'Suddenly Forbidden' by this author so what better way to kick that funk to the curb than to read another one of her books and OMG I am so glad I did, but now I know I'm going to be heading into a second book funk after finishing this. This author throws out all the feels, the angst, the emotional turmoil, the love I felt for Jared and Leo in this book was heartbreaking, even though it all worked out how it was mean't to in the end, it still slayed me to smithereens. 

Our marriage wasn't just in trouble—mere threads were all that held it together.
What was once my perfect happily ever after had dissolved right before my eyes.
I can tell you when it started to happen.
What I can't tell you is why. 
And after seven months of watching my husband turn into someone I didn't recognize, I'd given up hope in finding answers. 

So I decided to break his heart
... and he did nothing to stop me.
