A troubled marriage. A one week hall pass.

Gabriella Moore has it all; a beautiful husband, two adorable children, and a dream home. Yet, when, by chance, she befriends Eli online, she falls fast. And hard. She knows she must let him go, and saying goodbye is one of the hardest things she’s ever done, but she resolves to move on and forget about her beautiful stranger.

But then… she makes an unexpected discovery, and it shakes her perfect world to its core. Rules don’t apply anymore. An arrangement is made, and her husband gives her just one week with Eli. The rules are clear: One week. Sex only. No contact thereafter. Seems simple enough, but it’s never simple when it comes to love.

Gabriella Moore has everything a woman should want. She has a gorgeous husband, two beautiful children, amazing house and works from home. But she still feels lonely. When she befriends an online artist, Eli, she becomes a little obsessed. She lets him go but then her life takes an unexpected twist. Rules change and her husband allows her one week with Eli before she must give him up forever. One week, sex only and then no contact. Will Gabriella be able to move on after having Eli in real life?

This is just sex, I remind myself.
Extraordinary, beautiful sex.
I have a husband and kids.
An ocean separates us.
I need to say goodbye in five days.
But damn, those eyes.
God, why are you so cruel?

All the stars! How intense and emotionally heartbreaking. I could feel every single crack in Gabriella’s heart…not to mention Eli’s. This was just raw, gritty and the realness of life and marriage and how some grow closer and mature and some drift apart. I actually cried reading some parts of their story because sometimes it’s not about what’s fair or what’s smart and that just sucks. John, Gabriella and Eli pulled me into their lives and I could not put this story down. I read and read and devoured every emotion, every passionate display and every single tear. This series is going to epic. I can just tell.

I just adore love triangles and all of the angst and this story was no exception. Sometimes there’s no right or wrong, there’s just the heart and you can’t help who you fall for when it feels lonely and longs for some comfort.
