1.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone! 2 July 2011
Lynne Graham is a fav of mine but I'm not so sure anymore.

Spoilers ahead

The writing is very different from the prequel. The heroine seemed altered and the hero acted irresponsibly, I couldn't see them together in a healthy relationship. There's hard to swallow problems like losing a child, adultery, cheating with an old girlfriend and a child conceived from that cheating and I ask myself is this suppose be a romance story?
If this is your cup of tea fine, but if not, pass on this one.

This book SO did not need to be written as a standalone, as I said in my review of The Marriage Betrayal; the first book should simply have been a bit longer and both combined would have been a fairly satisfying read. As it was, I am glad that all I forked out on were two lots of library reservation fees.

This picks up just over a year after Tally and Sander's marriage broke down, apparently after he went all cold and immersed in business after their baby boy was stillborn and she shut him out. So, off he went and had a one-night-stand, only to be shown to have redeemed himself in Tally's eyes, despite becoming a father, as his lover realised and voiced in the morning that she knew that Sander was still madly in love with his wife. She then very conveniently died thirteen months later, thus taking herself, The Other Woman, out of the picture. So, Tally melts and all is forgiven in her book.

And Tally is still so sugary-sweet and too-good-to-be-true: even after a year's separation she hasn't moved on and still feels married, so can't even contemplate having another man in her life. And yet again she looks out for her user of a mother, and allows herself to be used/coerced by her absentee father and agrees to return to Sander (hence the Marriage Betrayal in reverse). And she finds the backbone to stand up to her dragon of a MIL and defends the suddenly-deserving-in-her-eyes Sander to his mother, yet a few pages later, despite having no real relationship with said dragon MIL, Tally is considering having another baby the following year as the dragon MIL would like another granddaughter? Really?

3.0 out of 5 stars A BIT TOO INTENSE 4 July 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the second part of the mini series, the first book The Marriage Betrayal (Mills & Boon Modern) held much promise of a really great story, it was a shame that the second part was not as good, part two kicks off with Tally and Sandor are apart, during this period Tally has started her own business and is doing well although emotionally is another matter.she is asked to return to the house in France where she and Sandor made their home as it is being sold. She needs to retrieve any of her belongings, soon after she arrives Sandor arrives the passion and sexual tension between them is still strong and they end up in bed. But Tally has no intentions of staying with a man who does not love her, Sandor has made it clear to her that the only woman he ever loved when he was younger betrayed him, he does not do love! Tally returns home, only to be blackmailed by her Father to return to the marriage, which is possible as Sandor made it clear to her while they were in France that he wanted her back. Tally goes back to Sandor but keeps her secret! But Sandor has his own secrets! While they were parted he did something, and now the indisputable evidence of that is staring him in the face. He is then forced to tell Tally the truth of what happened during their split. This book was not an easy read too many issues to deal with in a book this length. Tally in this book is a bit of an emotional wreck and is easily manipulated by the people around her. As for Sandor what he did was a multi levelled betrayal in my opinion, it was not just what he did but who he did it with, and he only told Tally when he was forced to! So he was not honest himself!

Waste of money, rubbish follow up book. Repetitive and depressing.
Weak and lukewarm storyline. Predictable ending, not the usual lynne graham standard.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why write a follow-up book? 2 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was OK but that is all I can say for it. What I don't understand is why it was written. As another reviewer has suggested the first Tally & Sander book - The Marriage of Betrayal could have been lengthened. I downloaded it as I had read the first book, but I'm not sure it was worth it. I didn't particularly like Sander's character & the story seemed to 'drag' a little. It is not one of the worst books I've read, but it certainly isn't one of the best either. Again I reiterate - why write this follow-up book?
