I don't quite know how to rate this book. The story was written like her others, but how do you rate a book when you stay so emotional reading it? Let me tell you...it's very easy to hate Max. The way he has treated Maddy...you think that he got what he deserved. Maddy on the other hand...why did she stay and put up with his treatment of her and his numerous affairs? So, I think that readers are just going to have to judge themselves.
This is a book where you feel every human emotion...the incredible anger, pity, love.
Read it.

story of Max Crighton, prominent lawyer - who has it all money, power, the perfect home life. But for a man addicted to the dark and dangerous side of sexual attraction, it isn't enough. He goes from affair to affair. seducing his grateful female clients, putting his charmed life-style at risk.

Then his luck runs out. Max is brutally attacked. And the man who comes home from the hospital is a stranger to his wife, Maddy, to his children and to himself. Can Maddy trust this man who desperately wants them to be a family? Should she believe that this perfect sinner has truly repented?

This book has one of the most despicable heroes I've ever come across. Amoral, abusive and just nasty. I don't know why his family didn't just do away with him. Three-quarters of the book is dedicated to his bad behavior, and the remaining to his about-face. The short amount of space given to his redemption makes it comical.

Max Crighton doesn't love anyone but himself. He doesn't love his wife, nor his two children, Leo and Emma. He's told his wife, Maddy, several times that the only reason that he married her was because of her money and the connections her family gave him as a lawyer. That all changes in a trip to Jamacia to look for his uncle David. While there, Max is brutally attacked and 'sees the light' where his wife and children are concerned. He even sees everything that is wrong with his relationship with his parents.

Maddy Crighton has her love for her children to sustain her. When Max leaves to Jamacia, she realizes that she never loved the person that Max truly was, just the illusion of him. When he comes back 'different' Maddy is unsure of whether to trust this extrodinary change that she sees in Max. It's true that he seems to really love his children, but Maddy isn't sure that she can risk her heart again, no matter how much he is changed.

The Crighton family gathers for a second go-round (after The Perfect Family), this time featuring Max, the rottenest apple in the Crighton barrel. A sadistic, abusive, profoundly unlikable lawyer, Max thinks of female divorce clients as fodder for his bedroom, and infants as blind kittens to be drowned. He tells his wife, Maddy, that he closes his eyes and thinks about her trust fund whenever they make love. When Max goes off to Jamaica, supposedly to find his brother, David (who disappeared in the previous book), Maddy gets a taste of independence. A brutal attack and near-death experience bring Max a spiritual awakening that changes his life and gives Maddy renewed hope for their future together.

A brutal attack and near-death experience bring Max a spiritual awakening that changes his life and gives Maddy renewed hope for their future together. Unfortunately, Max's metamorphosis will likely come too late for readers; forgiving him, and learning to like him, are impossible, so convincing is Jordan's portrait of his earlier, distasteful personality.
