GoodReads Summary:  
An American woman, named Holly, has everything she could possibly want living in the city of Melbourne. Her Australian husband, Tom, works hard chasing his hierarchical corporate dreams, so much so that he forgoes Holly’s happiness. Fighting to make their marriage work, Holly uncovers secrets about Tom, causing her to question all she ever believed in.

Distractions abound as Holly starts a new job, where she meets a charming stranger in the unlikeliest of circumstances. Her imagination is opened to a possible new way of life, lust, and love as she is given a chance to see how she can break free from the shackled boundaries set by a stifling city lifestyle.

Will she ever be able to go back to living the only way she ever knew or will she embrace the life offered to her? This love story is one of fear versus freedom, power versus submission and scheduled time versus endless time as city and country life collide.

This book is for mature audiences.

My Review:  
Hhmmm...okay, being a woman who's been married to the same man for 34 years, I tend to lean towards faithfulness in one's marriage vows. And just because you think someone may be up to something, doesn't mean he is. However, I will say in Holly's defense, it did look pretty bad for Tom given his behavior and his boss' behavior. Does that give her the "right" to go off (willingly or not) with another man? I'm not the judge or jury, just the reviewer. And I don't want to be the revealer, either. So enough said about that.

This book still has me twisted up about what was right and what was wrong. I don't like the boss lady, and I use the term lady very loosely here. She's jerking Holly's chain just for the sake of getting a reaction and loving it! Tom's weak and spineless, even if nothing is happening. And Holly SHOULD have done several things. But if I tell you what, you won't need to read the book. And I really think you need to read this book, IF...

...you like contemporary romance with lots of steamy, graphic sex, relationship angst, and hot men who have been very bad. My strong recommendation to get it immediately before the author comes out with book #2 and you need to read to catch up! 


I have it on good author-ity that the next book will be out about September and looks a lot like this!
