I’m Eden MacLaird, and Fate screwed me good at the age of twenty-one, stole my first love, then my first child. Twenty years later, I still haven’t found my happily-ever-after. Sure, from the outside, I have it all, including Declan, my gorgeous, rich-as-sin husband. But things aren’t what they seem, and catching Declan in bed with my best friend destroys any dreams I harbor for love, much less sexual fulfillment.
Then in walks Sean Bennett…
Just months away from earning his post-graduate law degree, Sean’s smart, driven, and serious, but an unexpected encounter between us in a bar one night changes everything. His best friend, Trinitee, warns against getting too involved, but the heat between us is beyond intense, and neither of us are willing to walk away.
With my marriage in shambles, I’m eager to make a go of it with Sean, despite our sixteen-year age difference. But while I relish my sexual reawakening, I fear giving up the posh life I’ve grown accustomed to. That life, however, and everything in it, comes crashing down as bodies start piling up around us, and all clues point to me and Sean.
Secrets, betrayal, and revenge threaten to destroy not just my carefully-crafted reputation, but my very life. With our freedom at stake, Sean and I join forces to uncover those plotting against us. But as doubt and evidence mount, I must choose: give in to my suspicions and save myself, or trust our new-found love and save us both.

I enjoyed this story, but there was just something about it that I can’t put my finger on that made me not LOVE IT.
It has an awesome storyline. There are a few “steamy” scenes… and maybe that is what it is that made me not “love” it… I usually read more “erotic” stories with more sex in them.
But aside from that, this story kept me on the edge of my seat and had me wondering what was going to happen next.
The story is told in two different point of views. You have Eden who is a married woman in a loveless marriage. She finds out her husband is having an affair with her best friend and from that point on, her life changes from the inside out. Eden meets Sean and has one steamy kiss in a bar bathroom and then the fun begins.
There is a lot of mystery in this story. Bodies come up dead, people aren’t who you think they are, and it will leave you second guessing what you think is right and what is wrong.
