Sadie Hunt isn't perfect - but her husband is. Nathan Hunt has her coffee waiting every morning. He holds her hand until the last second. He worships the Manhattan sidewalk she walks on.

When rugged and sexy Finn Cohen moves into the apartment across the hall, he and Sadie share an immediate spark. Finn reveals dreams for a different life. Sadie wants to save her marriage. Their secrets should keep them apart, not ignite a blistering affair. But while Sadie's marriage runs colder by the day, she and Finn burn hotter.

This Book Was An Emotional Roller coatser!

I am so confused about my feeling on this book, It took me 2 days to finally feel like I could write an honest review. I think it's one I just have a love/hate relationship with. In the beginning I was getting extremely annoyed because if this couple had just talked to each other then there wouldn't have been so much drama. But then again the more I got to know each character the more I understood their actions. I ended up loving them all and not wanting anyone to get hurt. I think Sadie and Nathan spent too much time thinking their marriage had to be perfect that they let that come between them. Saying this book has cheating isn't really giving a spoiler since it's in the synopsis but for the first time ever, this author made an affair make sense to me. Not that I agree with it but I can understand how it happened. I was a little disappointed that someone had to get hurt in the end, I would have loved for that person's future & happiness be in the epilogue (wishful thinking). All in all this book hit all of my emotions - anger, annoyance, sadness, lust, love and happiness. And I need to say that this book has a sex scene in a movie theater that was BEYOND HOT!!!!

The narration was amazing, which come on...It's Andi Arndt of course it was amazing!

For seven years Sadie has been put on a pedestal by her loving doting husband Nathan and then he stops, he goes out, comes home late, won't talk about what's wrong and Sadie is helpless, sad and eventually suspicious. She's also vulnerable... so, when sparks fly between her and her handsome new neighbor Finn, Sadie gets drawn in because Finn gives her a shoulder to cry on, eats her lovingly prepared meals meant for her absent husband who doesn't come home and Finn makes her laugh and feel again. As strong as she thought her marriage was, it's been broken for two miserable months and now Finn, and all his bold declarations, prove to be a very powerful temptation..... and, in her present state of mind, Sadie crosses the line.

This story is a heartbreaking account of two people whose soul deep love is tested to its breaking point.... not because they don't love each other, they do, and that's the tragedy about this story. Nathan's a tortured soul, he's a 'perfect person' but his inability to talk things over with Sadie and clear the air between them, is the catalyst that weakens their marriage. Does it destroy them?... Well, Finn is in the picture now, he too has a sad tale to tell.... of missed opportunities, Fate and broken dreams.... and, unlike Nathan, he's there for Sadie.

It's an emotional and powerful glimpse into a solid beautiful marriage that suddenly and unexpectedly reaches a crisis and, instead of leaning on each other for the answers, they both lean the other way. I'm not going to preach on the morals, decisions or broken promises that cheating elicits.... instead all I can say is that this story was ABSOLUTELY riveting - and I've had a sleepless night proving it..... I just couldn't stop this knife-edge listen until I knew the damage, the casualties and the bitter-sweet outcome. Told from Sadie's POV, there's passion, beautiful heartfelt words, some frenzied stolen sex scenes and the narrator was good.

Worth a credit? It depends - if you feel strongly (for whatever reason) about cheating and infidelity then definitely no it's not for you - but if you're easier and more comfortable about listening to this type of scenario then absolutely yes... it's an emotional and well written story about wrong decisions and second chances.
