Tempting Fate by Jane Green
Book Description by Goodreads:
When Gabby first met Elliott she knew he was the man for her. In twenty years of marriage she has never doubted her love for him - even when he refused to give her the one thing she still wants most of all. But now their two daughters are growing up Gabby feels that time and her youth are slipping away. For the first time in her life she is restless. And then she meets Matt . . .
Intoxicated by the way this young, handsome and successful man makes her feel, Gabby is momentarily blind to what she stands to lose on this dangerous path. And in one reckless moment she destroys all that she holds dear.
Consumed by regret, Gabby does everything she can to repair the home she has broken. But are some betrayals too great to forgive?
This is my second read of a Jane Green book so I wasn't sure what to expect. I am not a huge fan of books where there is infidelity in marriage but all the reviews said that once you got farther into the book the story really grabs your attention and you want to see how the book will end. The book involves a handful of characters. The main character Gabby, her husband Elliot, her to kids, and a couple of friends. I have to be honest after reading the first couple chapters I really did not like the character Gabby and didn't want to continue reading the story. But once I got through half of the book the story became more interesting and real to life. I though Jane did a really good job of describing how the fallout is for a family when one of them cheats. It was interesting to also read the twist that Jane buts in the book that you did not see coming. This book kept me interest and I finished it with in a couple hours which doesn't happen very often. I would recommend that reader who like romance and books that have a really good gut wrenching story read this book. I would also recommend what others to do which is continue to read even if you aren't sure what you think after the first couple characters as the book gets better.
