Is a full length, stand alone novel by new to me author 'Alison Rhymes.' Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives.'

Seeing this pop up on my newsfeeds all over the place had me #1clicking as soon as it went live. I knew what I was getting myself into, hoping that all those angsty feels would hit me where it hurt, it had me wanting to see him crawl his way back into June's graces as though she was a queen and he was a mere peasant. I had high expectations for this one. 

Sadly that really didn't happen, I wanted the rat bastard (Drew) to crawl on his knees on broken glass, he needed to atone for his cheating ways. This book fired me up and had my blood boiling to no end, I tried putting myself in her shoes and god he got off lightly leaving me with a bad taste in the mouth. I know it's only fiction, but a few gestures does not ring true to the real meaning of forgiveness. 

I just expected more. more from our heroine especially, she'd loved him for as long as she could remember, they had gone from zero to married in a flash of an eye, things were good for so many years or so she thought until she caught another woman in his hotel room. 

I did initially feel her pain and I wanted to stay in that zone, but we lose that focus and it's moved onto Drew, his needs, his infidelity, this started off really strong but lost that realness quickly. 

I wanted to weep, I wanted to hurt, I crave that in this genre, especially where cheating is concerned. So because of that I found it really hard to connect with these characters. 

And then we get to a twist where a fantasy is played out, this just seemed to be out of left field and out of character for these two. It didn't really make a hell of a lot of sense and threw me for a sixer.
