Gavin hit the lowest point in his life when his wife Thea asked for a divorce, but it’s mostly his fault because he let his pride get the best of him after finding out that she had been faking for most of their marriage. Then his team mates let him in on their little secret, a book club where they read romance novels to help push their marriages through the rough patches. Now, reluctantly reading a historical romance, Gavin attempts to court and win back his wife. Here’s hoping he’s not too late.
I’ve notoriously been against romances which include an established couple or married couple finding their way back to each other. Unless it’s a major misunderstanding I’m not really that into it. Having been in a number of relationships I should’ve given up on much much earlier I don’t really see the point in romanticizing such a thing.
But, yes, but I did really enjoy this book because it was about a fairly big misunderstanding that the two couples could get past based but were struggling to because of issues in their own pasts. I liked how Gavin was reluctant at first, but actually started to learn a few things from the romance novel
I will say that this was an easy read. It felt like it flew by and it was a nice book to read between heavier titles. Something fairly light without a ton of drama and hard topics. I can’t wait to read more from this author. I also liked the narration style. It had it’s own personality to the point that it felt almost like first person in spite of it being third.
