When one man’s death exposes a complex web of lies, three couples discover the true meaning of love, loss and redemption.
What do you do when you find out your whole life was a lie?
That your husband really wasn’t your husband but someone else’s.
That the vows you made to each other were simply empty promises.
You pick up and move to the country to start fresh.
When life hands you limes, you make sure you have tequila because your life is about to get stirred up.
Married to my high school sweetheart, the best thing she gave me was my baby girl.
But we weren’t enough for her. I wasn’t enough for her.
The last thing I expected on my birthday was a Dear John letter, but that’s what I got when she upped and left.
Now, it’s just me and my girl against the world till the new girl moves in next door.
Is there such a thing as a perfect love story?
When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…
I don’t know if I hate Natasha, or love her. Every time I read one of her novels I feel like, emotionally, I need ice cream, tissues, and a book that has only laughs and no drama. The best is I’m a sucker for single parent books, and Natasha writes some of the best I’ve ever read. This one included.
The prologue to this book broke me. I wanted to cry when Hailey found out her husband had died. But then his secrets are exposed and I wanted to die. For Hailey. Hailey is strong, and I know she’s a lot stronger than me, because I don’t know what I would have done if I were in her shoes. Her family, her support system, are phenomenal in helping her not only move on from the death of her husband, but also with not allowing her to fall into a depression she wouldn’t be able to get out of. The first step to moving on from Eric is moving out of the house.
Hailey moves into a house that is literally falling apart because the renter, Jensen Walker, has no idea it’s been rented out. His grandmother rented it out, and he hates it. That was the house he, his wife, and his daughter were supposed to live their HEA in. If his wife hadn’t cheated and left him with his daughter. So he’s let the house sit in disrepair because he hates it, and hates that Hailey is renting it. He is a total a-hole to Hailey too, simply because she’s living in the house.
So far, for everyone of my reviews for Natasha Madison, I think I stated that I was wrecked in it. BUT Y’ALL I’M WRECKED. GONE. DEAD. GUTTED. This book was an emotional roller coaster. From wanting to strangle Jensen, to wanting to cry for Hailey, I was all over the place. I wanted them both to be happy, and I wanted Jensen to get his head out of his butt and realize that the best thing ever was RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM. Hailey is kind, caring, forgiving, and she’s also lost. With the help of Jensen, Mila, the Walker clan, the Williams clan, and the ocean, Hailey heals herself. With the help of Hailey, Jensen learns to let go of the bitterness he had towards his ex.
AND THEIR LOVE IS SO AMAZING. Go get this book now. Pre-order it. Set you calendars for the release date (May 1st). I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
