My name is Kennedy Brooks and you're not going to like me. Chances are you may even hate me, and that's okay, there are times I do too. 

I had choices, we all do, the ones that I made changed everything. 
Before I knew it, the lines of right and wrong began to blur and I was consumed so deeply that I couldn't see a way out even if I wanted to. 

The path I chose is not for the faint of heart, it isn't always sweet, but it's real. 
What happens when all the things you have always wanted suddenly aren't all you want anymore? What do you do when the forbidden screams your name and both parts of your life become as vital as the air you breathe? 

You make a choice. 
This is my story. 

***Warning from the authors*** This book contains sensitive situations and explicit sex scenes. It will cause you to go through every emotion and is meant for ages 18+. 

I’m going to start off by saying that I do not typically read cheating books. Yes, I know by the title of the book that this book is in fact about cheating, but I decided to give it a chance as it was on my reading list for an upcoming signing.  Did it bother me morally that this book revolves about a cheating spouse? Yes, but I didn’t discount the book based on that fact alone. The story itself was erotically pleasing and exciting.  I honestly enjoyed the story and plot itself. I think had it not been a cheating spouse I would have given this book a 5 star rating. Could I condone the actions of Kennedy? No, but I understood her need for something more. As marriages evolve through time, not every couple will still be happy and unless they grow and adapt together as a couple, divorces and affairs become more prevalent. The ending saved the story a bit in my opinion, but I felt that it was unrealistic and unbelievable. In a real world situation, the chances of that happening would be the likelihood the moon is made of cheese. Did I hate the book? No, but I didn’t love it. I think had it been about anything else, but cheating, I would have loved the story. The sex is sizzling hot, but it just wasn’t enough for me to be okay with the cheating aspect of the story. 

Once I saw this book, I couldn’t wait to give it a try. Normally I stay away from books with cheating and obviously I knew going in this book had cheating just by the title but I came out of my comfort zone to give it a go. It’s hard to put my feelings into this review because honestly my emotions were all over the place while reading. One minute I was laughing the next minute I was like oh no that did not just happen.

The main character Kennedy and Gunner have been together for years but there is something missing. Dixon is Gunner’s best friend and one time with Kennedy he knows things will never be the same. This is just a book you will have to read in order to get the full experience. Each character pissed me off multiple times. A few times I wanted to smack their heads together. But I can say that the end left a smile on my face and I was happy for all 3.
