Break Even is NOW AVAILABLE!
As a lawyer, I’m used to discovery, but I never saw this one coming.
Every day, River gives me ten reasons to stay away, and then eleven reasons why I can't.
Our relationship was to remain strictly business, or at least I tried.
Four years of marriage, and everything with Cole has changed.
I never knew two people who lived together could be so distant.
But I’m not ready to give up on him.
One man wants to break me.
The other is just trying to get even.
Both are lying to me.
“This,” I say, gesturing between us, “would never last more than one day.”
“You might think that, but there’s something I know that you haven’t figured out yet.”
“And what’s that?”
He closes some of the space between us.
My mouth hangs open.
He’s so wrong, but he’s so right.
River is unlike anyone I’ve ever met.
He’s untouchable—unobtainable—and I’m married.
When Cole touches me, he just doesn’t reach deep enough.
It’s left a void.
Before I can come up with a rebuttal, the waitress brings us our plates and sets them in front of us.
The strawberries and blueberries make it pretty.
“You’re on every single one of them.”
He laughs sadistically.
I wouldn’t let you near me even if I were single.”
I received this book as an ARC for a honest review. This book was read and reviewed by Stacy Aube for Cutting Muse Blog Review.
This is a story about deception. The plot twists were excellent.
