Please forgive me friends there will be some spoilers in this review…
Synopsis: Flynn & Aria Roberts have had plenty of ups and downs during their seven year marriage. Everyone warned them not to wed so young – that they’d be missing out on the key years when people grow from young adults to mature individuals.
The only thing holding them together now is their love for each other and even that is becoming questionable.
To save the marriage, and the family they’ve already started, Flynn and Aria come up with an unconventional solution to help them find what’s missing in their relationship.
The only problem is doing so involves rediscovering themselves completely, even if it requires them to be unfaithful.
Can a marriage survive when vows are broken, or will chance encounters prove they’ve been missing out all-along?

Review: I was given the opportunity to review this book and although I like Jennifer Foor her books are usually a hit or miss with me. This one was a miss. Please don’t take that as a negative because she is a great writer and not everything is for everyone. So please don’t discount her skills based on this one review. Well lets get on with it, shall we…
I didn’t see how the title connected with the book at all. With the teaser blurb and the sexy hot cover, I just knew I was gonna get a great smut-filled angsty story. Nope. Not. At. All.
Aria was A-NOY-ING. There is no other way to put it. I couldn’t connect with the female character and I wanted to so bad. Being married for … years I know what it’s like to fall in and out of love with your spouse. The fighting then making up and all that jazz, so to want to slap this wishy washy female the majority of this book didn’t make for a good read for me. Flynn, her husband, wasn’t a saint and he said some harsh things to his wife but he was genuinely trying. She was so insecure that I couldn’t stomach reading her thoughts most of the time. Many will say that I am insensitive for that oh well. I understand insecurities, I truly do as I woman, not saying all women have them but come on…I have some myself, but she was just too hard to read.
Flynn was a jerk-face but he was a jerk that was trying. He knew he messed up and he wanted to try to fix it but she really wasn’t giving him anything to work with. They both spent so much time tearing each other down that at one point I was like call the damn lawyers already!!
********************* SPOILERS START HERE **************
Aria was a stay at home mom and that in itself can lead to depression and craziness if that is all you’ve ever known since 18 so I understood her resentment. What I didn’t understand was how in the hell did she think becoming a swinger was going to help her situation with her husband. She knew he was jealous, hell she was jealous when she thought he was cheating so how did she think she was going to share him and vice versa? Another thing I didn’t understand is how she never thought to have herself checked for Bipolar disease since her mother was Bipolar? She never EVER thought that that could be part of her problem? As you read the book and Flynn makes the most insensitive jab at her about it the light clicks on and you’re like OOoooohhhh so that is why her ramblings and musings are so all over the place! But it didn’t help the story not one bit. Other than buying lingerie and letting her new swinger bestie munch her out in the dressing room nothing else fantastically smutty happened. I can’t say it was a waste of time but it could’ve been so much better. With that I will give this book 3 out of 5 stars, it had potential but led me on with the title and cover.
