    I am ridiculously conflicted about reviewing this On the one hand I want to remember it as one of the cavalcade of cheating spouse books I read after scarring myself with A Perfect Marriage On the other hand I feel like a review even a mediocre one gives this novel attention than it deserves There’s nothing insightful and very little that is delicious here The characters are mostly just awful people you don’t want to spend time withContent warning incest Genre warning not romanceJulia and Josh have been married for 16 years and are mostly in love and have a well functioning marital and parental partnership except for the fact that Julia has been unable to have sex with him for the past mumble months She just freezes up as we see when Julia once again tries to get over the problem by just forcing herself to have sex with Josh but ends up pleading with him to stop mid coitus They’ve been through some non productive therapy to try to resolve the issue with Josh pushing his wife to go back for because he’s not sure how much longer he can take this rejection Josh is convinced Julia’s problem has something to do with her father who walked out on his marriage 25 years ago when Julia was fifteen and hasn’t seen her since What Josh doesn’t say is he thinks Julia is in denial about her father sexually abusing her References to Julia's past relationship with her father imply they were excessively close Julia is waffling between the “unresolved issues from my past” explanation for her sexual dysfunction and her belief that she’s off sex because she suspects Josh is having an affair Spoiler alert Josh is having an affair But Julia’s sex problem is definitely the daddy abandonment issue Both issues come to a head when Julia receives a phone call from a nice lady lawyer informing her that her father has died and left her his property in Cornwall Julia tries to phone Josh with the news but can’t reach him so she decides to go talk to her best friend Sylvia instead view spoilerSylvia’s not in her home pottery studio so Julia loiters around dialing Josh’s number and hears his distinctive ringtonein Sylvia’s house Then she hears the noises coming from upstairs Sylvia’s moans and Josh’s tell tale orgasmic groans Horrified Julia retreats and reserves her confrontation with Josh for when he returns home that evening It involves her breaking a lot of expensive pottery Josh had purchased from Sylvia and Josh being 40% apologetic and 60% defensive about the affair Josh asserts that Sylvia was his best option during Julia’s sexual moratorium because he and Sylvia were never going to fall in love They’re just scratching an itch and once Julia was ready to have sex with him again the affair would have ended Josh is awfulSpoiler alert Sylvia is totally in love with Josh and trying to steal him away from her best friend Before Julia discovered the affair Sylvia had been urging Julia to address the sex problem by having an affair of her own while simultaneously attempting to shut down Julia’s “paranoid” concerns that Josh was being unfaithful Sylvia is awful and the only delicious thing about this bookJulia needs to get away from Josh and his stupid excuses for infidelity so she decides she’s going alone to her father’s funeral and then she’ll check out the property he left her Josh’s mom who resents Julia can look after the kids Julia’s mother in law is awfulWhile in Cornwall Julia learns all about her beloved father’s life for the past 25 years from the nice lawyer lady as well as discovering a journal he kept You might think she would sit down and read the journal in a single afternoon but that would end the book too soon for the author not for me so she’s just going to read little snippets at a time Meanwhile her daughter comes down to Cornwall and forms a crush on the nice lawyer lady’s visiting Italian cousin who is too old for the teenage daughter and too young for Julia Nevertheless the daughter walks in on her crush and her mother having mad monkey sex Oops The angry and hurt daughter immediately insists on going back to London alone by train so Julia has to phone her husband and explain why he needs to pick their fifteen year old up at the train station Josh does not take the news well and calls his wife a selfish whore Julia is torn between being apologetic and throwing accusations that her husband is unable to uit Sylvia Meanwhile back at the husband’s affair Josh had actually broken off with Sylvia after Julia left himexcept for one almost handjob but surely that doesn’t count Josh is still awful Now pissed because his wife is not sexually dysfunctional with hot young Italians he calls Sylvia and accepts her invitation to attend a launch party for her latest book Sylvia works the PR machine via radio interviews and her gossipy personal assistant to make sure everyone knows she is in a serious relationship with a married man who is about to divorce his wife so they can live happily ever after Julia hears the interview and phones Josh outraged that she’s learning about the possibility of a divorce second hand Josh is indifferent in the sense that he has no idea what she’s talking about since he didn’t hear the interview and disdainful because yay if his unfaithful wife is hurt and jealous Nevertheless on the way to pick Sylvia up for the party Josh has some second thoughts and calls to cancel on her Sylvia is flabbergasted and desperate begging Josh to reconsider or just come over to her place for sex because she loooooves him and they are meant to be Josh terminates the relationship and shakes his head over how “clingy” Sylvia turned out to be Josh Is Awful Goodbye deliciously evil Sylvia Julia’s hot young Italian lover wants her to come back to Italy with him and Julia has to gently break his hot young Italian heart before she resumes reading her father’s journal where she finally learns the reason her father left 25 years ago he discovered his wife was in an incestuous relationship with her brother and they lied to him that Julia was the product of their incestuous love Julia’s mother then attempted to sour Julia on her father by gaslighting her with suggestions of fatherdaughter incest that Julia was supposedly repressing Julia’s father is innocent A saint Julia’s mother is every bit as awful as Julia always thought she was so Julia decides to confront her mother and her uncle at the uncle’s farmhouse where Julia’s mother lives with her brotherlover and his bitter bitter wife Julia’s mother is awful Julia’s uncle is awful Julia’s aunt is bitterand awfulDuring the confrontation at the farmhouse the awfully bitter aunt thrusts a gun at Julia and cackles “shoot them Destroy the fornicators” or something like that and Julia shoots She’s then taken into custody by the police and the nice lawyer lady comes to bail her out and we discover that Julia shot at the wall So no fornicators were harmed in the making of this novel Josh is waiting outside the police station and he and Julia kiss and make up without addressing the various emotional wounds they have inflicted on each other Now she needs a few days to close up her father’s house and Josh needs to get back to their kids in London During this brief post reconciliation separation Julia discovers she’s pregnant Oops Josh doesn’t want her back with some half Italian baby to eternally remind him of her affair Julia has some ualms about terminating a pregnancy just because the baby’s father isn’t her husband We angst over this until a visit to the doctor reveals that Julia is in fact 15 weeks pregnant not 5 or 6 as she thought and the baby is the result of that coitus interruptus experience with her husband way back at the beginning of the book Now they're going to live happily ever after because circumstances conveniently aligned to eliminate the latest potential problem hide spoiler

    Warning This review contains spoilersThis book frustrated me to no end It had the making for a good plot but was so disappointing The husband Josh never redeemed himself in my opinion He cheated on his wife with her best friend because god forbid if he has to go without sex while his wife is facing some problems He didn't even feel bad about cheating because when his wife found out he kept cheating and talking the the 'supposed' best friend I don't even think he came clean to his wife about sleeping with her after she found out about the affair Julia the wife had absolutely no dignity As soon as she found out he was cheating it was all 'don't leave me' blah blah blah Have a little self respect He was cheating on you with your best friend for months To top it off he turned around and blamed his wife because he cheated The POS couldn't even accept responsibility for his actions but had to blame it on his wife to ease his guilty conscious and found it so hard to stop the affair Schmuck Yet when the table are reversed and the wife cheats he calls her a whore and tells her not to come home to be with her kids Really Hypocrite much This book has a cheating hero who's a complete ass and a heroine with no self respect I hate it when heroine's meekly accept that their spouse cheated I can do cheating romance but for god's sake make the man grovel like he should

    I loved this book I was 34 of the way through before I had any clue as to the possible outcome Keeps you on your toes and so well written I thought Josh was a bit of a hypocrite but thats men for you

    I have read a lot of books concerning infidelity but this one one make me feel nauseated The sex scene with the other woman were than one and overly detailed also random but were bikini waxes a new thing when this was written? Sylvia and Josh acted in awe of her waxed va jay jay as if it was groundbreaking? The heroine Julia was not my favourite and she made mistakes but nothing she did warranted ending up with a scumbag like Josh He is possibly one of the worst cheating heroes I have ever read and I have read loads of assholes so that says something Not only does he literally take no blame or responsibility for his actions when confronted he actually says he is doing his wife a favour by screwing her best friend as it means he will not fall in love with some other woman Aside from the fact that if he can fall in love with someone that easily it says exactly how much he actually cares about his wife; The dude is delusional He actually hurls insults at his wife calling her fucked up and blaming her for him cheating He says he isn’t a monk? He had to go a few months without sex and he couldn’t cope he is a joke I understand it being frustrating as Julia keeps being unable to make love and doesn’t know why He claimed he felt rejected what a load of crap His wife constantly told him it was not his fault and she had actually seeked counselling for it it’s not like she wasn’t trying and he just treated her like shit if he cannot have sex with her what use is she? We are constantly told in this book how much Julia and Josh love each other that The sex Josh has with the ow is nothing compared to his love making with Julia he has no feelings for The ow etc etcI hate inconsistency but we get plenty of if here Hell if the sex is nothing compared to Julia then why is he so unable to stop having sex with his side piece even after his wife finds out? When she is devastated? While she is dealing with his affair and her fathers death he is still messing around He is that weak and pathetic He claims he has no feelings for Sylvia so why does he keep answering her calls why do they chat like old friends for over an hour on the phone if there is no connection? Better yet why does he take her away with him on trips to Amsterdam etc when he has never even taken his wife don’t know how Julia let that one go? We keep hearing him think how guilty he feels how much he loves Julia but then we see he only loves her when it’s convenient As soon as things get tough he cheats When Juli dares to be snippy with him after his betrayal he literally verbally abuses here calls her fucked up etc We see him thinking about avoiding being around her because she is upset with him he basically only likes her when she is compliant When she isn’t he ignores her insults her or fucks Sylvia He doesn’t love her He is honestly scum and this book disgusted me I know Julia cheats as well but let’s be honest if Josh hadn’t of cheated and didn’t stay in contact with Sylvia if he actually gave a shit that his wife’s Father had died then Julia never would have cheated on him This book was horrific Josh calling Julia a whore after his behaviour was laughable I hated him and was so disappointed when Julia forgave him He will cheat again and it wouldn’t be too hard for Sylvia to seduce him in the right circumstances

    Ms SUSAN LEWIS portrayed herself as a mother father daughter son and a friend in a heartwarming and mind blowing novel Julia Cowan Thayne is a valued strong and loving wife a caring mother to her kids and a beautiful woman She is living happily with her kids and her successful loving husband Joshua 'Josh' Thayne Julia is constantly happy in her life but the past keeps haunting her and because of that she had hard time pulling herself together The ghost of Julia's past moved into their marriage and they find themselves losing the struggle to keep their relationship stronger She wants to know the real reason behind her father's Douglas 'Dougie' Cowan abandonment THEN TWO PHONE CALLS CHANGED EVERYTHING As for a fourteen year old this'll be a giant ball of boredom haha but I totally enjoyed reading the book Strong emotions are poured out on each pages and everything's well written The book is truly astounding surprising and mystifying The so called 'twists' and 'revelations' are perfectly unpredictable and uplifting I can't say that it's a book for all ages but if you're matured enough Hahaha The story is nearly close to reality well I think this has happened in real life haha I think Miss Susan Lewis is now one of my favorite authors


  9. Kathlyn Kathlyn says:

    Just a few pages in and it's saccharin sweet nauseatingly vomit inducing chic lit meant for readers with an I in single figures and a reading age of ten ABANDONED Glad I only paid 2p for it at a library clearance sale and not surprised at all it was in the sale

    Warning This review contains spoilersThis book frustrated me to no end It had the making for a good plot but was so disappointing The husband Josh never redeemed himself in my opinion He cheated on his wife with her best friend because god forbid if he has to go without sex while his wife is facing some problems He didn't even feel bad about cheating because when his wife found out he kept cheating and talking the the 'supposed' best friend I don't even think he came clean to his wife about sleeping with her after she found out about the affair Julia the wife had absolutely no dignity As soon as she found out he was cheating it was all 'don't leave me' blah blah blah Have a little self respect He was cheating on you with your best friend for months To top it off he turned around and blamed his wife because he cheated The POS couldn't even accept responsibility for his actions but had to blame it on his wife to ease his guilty conscious and found it so hard to stop the affair Schmuck Yet when the table are reversed and the wife cheats he calls her a whore and tells her not to come home to be with her kids Really Hypocrite much This book has a cheating hero who's a complete ass and a heroine with no self respect I hate it when heroine's meekly accept that their spouse cheated I can do cheating romance but for god's sake make the man grovel like he should

    I have read a lot of books concerning infidelity but this one one make me feel nauseated The sex scene with the other woman were than one and overly detailed also random but were bikini waxes a new thing when this was written? Sylvia and Josh acted in awe of her waxed va jay jay as if it was groundbreaking? The heroine Julia was not my favourite and she made mistakes but nothing she did warranted ending up with a scumbag like Josh He is possibly one of the worst cheating heroes I have ever read and I have read loads of assholes so that says something Not only does he literally take no blame or responsibility for his actions when confronted he actually says he is doing his wife a favour by screwing her best friend as it means he will not fall in love with some other woman Aside from the fact that if he can fall in love with someone that easily it says exactly how much he actually cares about his wife; The dude is delusional He actually hurls insults at his wife calling her fucked up and blaming her for him cheating He says he isn’t a monk? He had to go a few months without sex and he couldn’t cope he is a joke I understand it being frustrating as Julia keeps being unable to make love and doesn’t know why He claimed he felt rejected what a load of crap His wife constantly told him it was not his fault and she had actually seeked counselling for it it’s not like she wasn’t trying and he just treated her like shit if he cannot have sex with her what use is she? We are constantly told in this book how much Julia and Josh love each other that The sex Josh has with the ow is nothing compared to his love making with Julia he has no feelings for The ow etc etcI hate inconsistency but we get plenty of if here Hell if the sex is nothing compared to Julia then why is he so unable to stop having sex with his side piece even after his wife finds out? When she is devastated? While she is dealing with his affair and her fathers death he is still messing around He is that weak and pathetic He claims he has no feelings for Sylvia so why does he keep answering her calls why do they chat like old friends for over an hour on the phone if there is no connection? Better yet why does he take her away with him on trips to Amsterdam etc when he has never even taken his wife don’t know how Julia let that one go? We keep hearing him think how guilty he feels how much he loves Julia but then we see he only loves her when it’s convenient As soon as things get tough he cheats When Juli dares to be snippy with him after his betrayal he literally verbally abuses here calls her fucked up etc We see him thinking about avoiding being around her because she is upset with him he basically only likes her when she is compliant When she isn’t he ignores her insults her or fucks Sylvia He doesn’t love her He is honestly scum and this book disgusted me I know Julia cheats as well but let’s be honest if Josh hadn’t of cheated and didn’t stay in contact with Sylvia if he actually gave a shit that his wife’s Father had died then Julia never would have cheated on him This book was horrific Josh calling Julia a whore after his behaviour was laughable I hated him and was so disappointed when Julia forgave him He will cheat again and it wouldn’t be too hard for Sylvia to seduce him in the right circumstances

    Ms SUSAN LEWIS portrayed herself as a mother father daughter son and a friend in a heartwarming and mind blowing novel Julia Cowan Thayne is a valued strong and loving wife a caring mother to her kids and a beautiful woman She is living happily with her kids and her successful loving husband Joshua 'Josh' Thayne Julia is constantly happy in her life but the past keeps haunting her and because of that she had hard time pulling herself together The ghost of Julia's past moved into their marriage and they find themselves losing the struggle to keep their relationship stronger She wants to know the real reason behind her father's Douglas 'Dougie' Cowan abandonment THEN TWO PHONE CALLS CHANGED EVERYTHING As for a fourteen year old this'll be a giant ball of boredom haha but I totally enjoyed reading the book Strong emotions are poured out on each pages and everything's well written The book is truly astounding surprising and mystifying The so called 'twists' and 'revelations' are perfectly unpredictable and uplifting I can't say that it's a book for all ages but if you're matured enough Hahaha The story is nearly close to reality well I think this has happened in real life haha I think Miss Susan Lewis is now one of my favorite authors

    Just a few pages in and it's saccharin sweet nauseatingly vomit inducing chic lit meant for readers with an I in single figures and a reading age of ten ABANDONED Glad I only paid 2p for it at a library clearance sale and not surprised at all it was in the sale
