Elaine Lewis is a socialite with good friends and a wonderfully caring husband.
She appears to have everything but appearances can be deceiving.
Underneath the facade she's deeply troubled and harboring a secret that causes her to be mentally unstable.
Martian's the kind hearted doctor/ husband who's inability to help his wife causes him to live in denial pretending his marriage is fine.
But eventually Elaine and Martian will have to face Elaine's self destructive behavior in order to move forward towards their new future.
This book would make a good lifetime movie.
The only thing that could have made this romance better is more passionate details in the bedroom.
I'm not saying extreme dirty words were necessary because this isn't that kind of book but, the intimate scenes are so abruptly cut that it's hard to feel the attraction between these characters.
In certain situations this caused me to wonder why Elaine even made some of the choices she makes.
Other than that the story is well written.
I was gifted this book by the narrator Kevin Iggens (who did an excellent job of acting the parts of these characters with his pleasant even tone) in exchange for my honest review.
In a nutshell.. if your looking for a good clean realistic romance this book is worth the credit.

I found this book to be different. It took me a while to get into it. I was glad that Martin did not allow his tragedy to make him stop loving Elaine. I am also glad that he was man enough to keep in constant contact with his son in spite of the circumstances. It took a lot of effort for me to like Elaine because she seemed so selfish. She had three good men, well two and one who could be good with the right woman in love with her but she allowed her past to dictate her present. I was sad when her friend's heart gave out but it was the kick in the butt that Elaine needed to begin to heal. The narrator was good but I had to speed up the book because he seemed to speak in the same tone throughout. I got this ARC via audiobook boom.
