Sensational New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams breaks bounds with this emotionally wrenching, heartbreakingly real New Adult novel of love, passion, guilt, honor, and infidelity.
Twenty-three year old Kamryn Cunningham has left behind a privileged, turbulent past for the anonymity of small-town life. Busy with her new bakery, she isn’t interested in hook-ups or fix-ups. Then she meets the very sexy, very married Brody. Though she can’t deny the pull between them, Kamryn isn’t a cheater and she’s not good at sharing.
Twenty-six year old Brody Saco may be married, but he isn’t happy. When his girlfriend got pregnant six years ago, he did the right thing . . . and he’s been paying for it ever since. Now, his marriage is nothing but a trap filled with hate, manipulation, and blame—the remnants of a tragedy that happened five years earlier. While he’s never broken his vows, he can’t stop the flood of emotion that meeting Kamryn unlocks.
Brought together by an intense heat that is impossible to resist, Brody and Kamryn share stolen moments and nights that end too soon. But is their love strong enough to bear the weight of Kamryn’s guilt? And is Brody strong enough to confront the pain of the past and finally break free of his conniving wife?
Star-crossed lovers, Love triangle & a conniving wife - OH MY!
Star-crossed lovers, Love triangle, conniving wife and infidelity. Well, that makes it sound really bad! LOL Rest assured that if anyone can pull these topics off without you totally losing your mind, it is Molly McAdams. This book can be read as a stand-alone and does not have a cliffhanger.
I went into this one blind without reading the blurb .... just signed up to review. I really enjoyed this quick read. It was not super heavy, I liked the characters (most of them... the ones i was supposed to) and liked the story. Afterwards I read the blurb to get a feel for what others may think. I know there are those who cannot stomach cheating in a book, but with reading this one, I could not see it as really cheating.... At least not in a normal circumstance.
Even though it drives me mad and I can’t deal with the angst – it is my guilty pleasure and I just can’t help myself to read them and get totally wrapped up in the drama they cause. Cheating… another one of those no no topics, BUT, AGAIN, Molly made it work. Once you read and are in the middle of everything that brings them to that point, I don’t think you will be minding that much anymore.
As many that have read a Molly McAdams book already, they are probably worried about their hearts being RIPPED out of their chests and take stock out on tissues since you expect the whole ugly cry, but this is not one of those books.
While I did read the Sharing You Prequel “Sharing Firsts” that was in the Fifty First Times sequel – and you get to meet the majority of the characters in this series briefly, I did not read Capturing Peace yet, as I did not realize that it was a prequel novella to Sharing You, however I understand that we met the male main character Brody in that Novella – as he was one of the characters in the story, but it is not necessary to read Capturing Peace or Sharing First before reading Sharing You. I was not lost at all – so I think you can start with either book first.
I really enjoyed this book even though it did have cheating, I totally did not feel bad about it – and I don’t think you would either! There is so much more to the story than cheating, so don’t worry. The chemistry and connection between Brody and KC and you will want them together too.
This is a well-written book and you will sympathize with the characters and will be hoping that everyone gets their happily ever after – well except one particular woman…..
I can’t wait to read more about these characters, now I have to go back and read Capturing Peace! So, if you love a good angsty book with a love triangle, this book is for you and you should definitely pick it up!
I always enjoy reading Molly McAdams, and this is another book I'll be adding to my collection. I like how she takes characters from other books and gives us their story and intertwines the books to give the characters more life. Can't wait for her next piece.
Another hit for Molly! Every book has been amazing and I can't wait till November to read the next hit! Keep up the outstanding work!!
