Inner turmoil most women can relate to; a realistic and fascinating look into another woman's struggle to have her own needs met while staying the "good" wife/child/friend.

I hated this book. But not in a "It's so boring I can't read it" kind of way, but in a "This character is so dumb I want to smack her upside the head" kind of way. In a "This is the end of the book? Seriously? You're going to leave me hanging even though I don't even know why I care to know what happens to this stupid character" kind of way.

You'll have to read the book to find out the ridiculous activities that go on. Will she have an affair with David? Will Kevin find out? Will Emily and Kevin stay together? Will you hate Emily by the end of the book?

It was another one of those cautionary tales that getting what you think you want doesn't always make you happy. It was realistic, but ugh, Emily...I just did not like her very much. But for me to have this much passion about a character in a book, you know it had to be pretty good.

Meet Emily Ross--A thirty-year old married to her college boyfriend, Kevin. Then comes along David. David has the kind of face Emily desires! This book explores the human heart and dangers of getting what you wished for. It is endearing and funny. I found myself laughing out loud at times!

This book was about serious issues and yet was laugh-out-loud funny in some parts. Very well written. The characters were all very relatable. Fast moving story, quick read, perfect for the beach or a vacation. I enjoyed it very much.
