Evidence of the Affair
SHORT (but great) STORY ALERT!! I was surprised (and totally into) the character “POV” with this one. By that title alone, you know you’re going into a grittier look at relationships. While it’s not a romance, it IS a love story, albeit… possibly the end of one.

Loaded in feelings and angst (and angry moments), but of course, when it comes to this author, you know that’s exactly what you’re going to get.

It is funny the crazy things our brains make up to save us from the truth.

Sure, it’s short, but it’s well developed and realistically explores all sorts of personal pain and introspection. It will keep you reading, desperate to find out what happens, and it did throw quite a surprise our way!!

Tasha: …I’m almost done with Evidence of the Affair and I’m shocked! There’s 1 little snippet that had me gasp and I didn’t see it coming.

Cheryl: I just finished it and it was… interesting. Kept waiting for a twist. …Tasha, I did a double take too. Just one of those where a bomb is thrown out casually.

Jenn: Evidence of the Affair can make me feel so much in such a short amount of time because I could relate to Carrie’s struggle and yes I gasped and actually had to go back and read it again because I questioned myself on whether I read it correctly!

I KNOW RIGHT!??? ME TOO!!! I was all… Waitwait!! eek What??!

So what’s it about?

A wife discovers her husband’s infidelity by finding the love notes his “other woman” is sending him. Shocked and reeling…

…he’s the same Ken I’ve always known and loved and still eats a turkey sandwich every day. It’s just that he’s capable of things I never knew.

…instead of confronting him, she patiently awaits each new letter he’s hidden, gathering more information for herself.

Days later, I still hear it reverberating in my head over and over and over. I have never felt so alone. Alone in the world and alone in my marriage. Alone in love, really.

Then she writes to the woman’s husband and tells him, and the whole story unfolds through the perspective and developing friendship and alliance of the spouses that are being cheated on.

Thank you for being there for me. I know you only as handwriting on a page, and yet you might be my closest friend.

It’s a quick, emotional & surprising story but… pure Taylor Jenkins Reid. Now I wish for a part 2. ;) *fingers crossed*

She’s one of my absolute favorites (always so poignant, yet raw in her storytelling), and we journey with her through the harder parts of love. An HEA is not guaranteed, but becoming fully immersed and feeling the heartache (or elation) always is!

4 stars!

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! We’re having a giveaway!! The author just released the duet conclusion early and we’re celebrating on the blog (scroll down for more details. To enter, just comment on this post)!! SQUEEEEEE!!!!!  Emma Scott says:

“…both books will be signed and given to one winner …Oh, and international!!”

<— NOT YOUR TYPICAL LOVE TRIANGLE but boy did it do a number on our hearts (in fact, here’s my review) ;) . And there’s finally cliffhanger relief ’cause book #2 (the conclusion) is LIVE!!!!! YAY US!!! :D

Jean:  I just finished “Bring Down The Stars” I am in awe of this book and can not say enough about it. I loved it so much definitely one of the best books I have ever read! I typically stay away from series unless they are all out as there is nothing worse than book torture waiting for the next one to come out and that is where I am at since book 2 is not out…

Jean: Just finished Bring Down the Stars by Emma Scott! Amazing! Yes, the cliffhanger is killing me but damn it was great! I’m in love with two guys!

R: I’ve had the Bring Down the Stars playlist on repeat lately.

Jenn: The torture of waiting kills me. I made the mistake of reading ” Bring Down The Stars” not knowing anything about especially did not know it was a duet and I’m still not over where that book left me…

Relief is just a few days away Jenn!!! ;)

About book #1:

I fell for Connor Drake. I didn’t want to; I fought against it, but I fell in love with him anyway. With his words. With his poetry. With him. The gentleness and beauty of his soul that speaks directly to mine. He writes as if he can feel my heart, hear its cadence and compose the exact right lyrics to accompany every beat and flow.

I’m in love with Connor…so why do I feel an inexplicable pull to his best friend, Weston? Grouchy, sullen, brooding Weston Turner, who could cut you down with a look. Fiercely intelligent with a razor sharp wit and acid tongue, he’s the exact opposite of Connor in every way, and yet there’s electricity in the air between us. The thorny barbs Weston wraps around himself can’t keep me away.

But the more time I spend with these men, the more tangled and confused my emotions become. When they both sign up for the Army Reserves during a time of increasing strife in the Middle East, I fear I’ll never unravel my own heart that sometimes feels as if it will tear straight down the middle…for both of them.




Now for the giveaway :D !!

One (1) winner receives:

A signed copy of each book in this duet!! Bring Down the Stars & Long Live the Beautiful Hearts <— OMG I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THESE!!!

I’ve got them. Free drinks? By the dozen. Kissing? Let me grab my chapstick. But the most valuable lesson I’ve learned is that there’s so much I don’t know. Like why his touch sets off a chain reaction straight to my nethers. Or how I’m certain each kiss is the best I’ll ever have, until the moment his lips take mine again. There’s so much I don’t know. Like the fact that I’m only a bet. But we are what we are. He’s a player, through and through. And I’m the fool who fell in love with him..”

I have been at work since 5:30 and I keep stealing moments to read a few pages…I can’t seem to stay away; which is not good as Friday’s are so busy for me.

Robyn: All My Life sounds so much like my favorite book Unbreak My Heart!! She’s known him and loved him since childhood, marriage, a child and divorce and he doesn’t know or realize this. This sounds like some angsty unrequited love to moi. This just moved up to next in my que!

I’ve been trying to remember it for so long now.

Does anyone know it?

Anne: Wow this book!! I cried so much but in a good way. It was pretty unique and the love story is so sweet and heartbreaking I couldn’t put it down.

Ruth: where one goes<<<< this one was worth an ugly cry as u call it.

D.G.: Good morning peeps!!! Had to stop reading this morning because I didn’t want to RUIN my makeup from BAWLING my eyes out! UGH! SO GOOD that I just had to put it down so I can SAVOR my crying jag later when I have time! Where One Goes by BN Toler.

Maryse- have you read it?!? Lots of feels…

Mona: DG, thank you for recommending Where One Goes! This book definitely brings the tears, but it also makes you laugh. I could not stop reading it…one clicked this morning and finished this evening! Thank you!

AnneC: Hi Maryse! “What Lies Between” by B.N. Toler released today. It is a follow up book to “Where One Goes” with Ike, Charlotte and George.

Jessica: Omg! I loved Where One Goes and had no clue she was writing another one  so excited

About book #1:

What happens when the very thing ruining your life ends up saving it?

I was never one to believe in spirits—until six years ago, when a bone-chilling accident changed my life…forever.

My name is Charlotte, but most people call me Char…and I have a special gift.

I talk to the dead.

Make no mistake, I can’t summon them. I’m only able to see and speak to the spirits that linger when they’re unable to crossover. They’re somehow weighted to the world with unfinished affairs. And for the last six years, I’ve relentlessly used my gift to help their lost souls.

But it’s come at a price. My life is dark. Feeling despondent, I’ve begun to give up. And in helping the dead, I’ve realized I haven’t allowed myself to live. With no money, no place to go, and most importantly… no hope, I’ve decided there is only one option—to end it all.

But fate is a funny thing. One minute, I’m about to leap to my death, and the next, I’m saved by Ike McDermott. The strong, striking soldier stopped me from putting an end to my despair. He’s the kind of man that smiles and brightens an entire room.

Sweet and gentle.

He is my savior.

And he’s dead.

We’ve made an agreement. He’ll help me find a place to stay and a new job if I’ll help him with his unfinished business so that he may crossover.

Ike’s unfinished matter involves his twin brother, George. George has been falling apart since Ike’s death and Ike has not been able to compel himself to crossover in peace until he knows George will be okay.

When I agreed to help, little did I know that I’d fall in love with the charming folks of Bath County, and…Ike and George McDermott.

Now, as both brothers own equal parts of my heart, I am faced with a cruel and unfair predicament. In saving George, I must let go of Ike.

But how does one let go of half of their heart?
