New York Times best-selling author Shannon Hale makes her adult fiction debut with The Actor and the Housewife. When Becky, a housewife with screenwriting dreams, attracts the interest of Felix, a Hollywood star, the two quickly become friends. Though the sexual tension is obvious, Becky has no intention of cheating on her husband - but would Felix cheat on his wife? As their friendship blossoms, rumors and suspicion threaten to derail their platonic love.

Thought Provoking

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It makes one think about the lines that should be drawn to show fidelity in marriage and how important it is to always keep one's spouses needs in mind. I laughed, I cried, I smiled, I shook my head in both agreement and disagreement. The question of having a FRIEND that is a member of the opposite sex in addition to your spouse being your best friend is an interesting one that the author deals with very well.

Can't believe I spent money on this

I loved Austenland so I was very excited about getting this book. Boy am I disappointed. I am seriously dragging myself through this solely because I dropped $14.95 on it. And I can't even skim since it is an audiobook. But if I have to listen to one more description of how much she loves her husbands and kids, I will yak. I need some serious conflict and tension and I'm not even remotely getting it from this book.
