Goodreads Summary

This book was interesting, I wasn't quite sure if I liked it or not.  The main character, Nell, is debatable as whether she is a likable character or not.  Even if she does resist David's advances, she still does a surprising action...considering he has a pregnant wife.  David is hard to decide about, the reader will likely not like his actions towards the other characters...but he is a nice man to Nell-very nice.  The book has many twists and surprised within the pages.  The reader will have to choose for him/herself as to whether they enjoy the book or not. 

Nell as a character isn't bad, she's a fairly nice person-certainly not looking to enter into infidelity...  David's character is even harder to judge, do you want a character who takes what he wants no matter the cost?  The author shows the innate flaws in each character, but this adds to the story.  The events are fast-paced, no long waits for the reader which is a huge plus.  The plot is interesting, given the attitude some hold towards marriage today. This book is recommended for adult readers (there are some sex scenes).
