A reasonable extension of the first book - The Boss. I did however find this far weaker than the first. The character Neil battling cancer was indeed a very difficult subject to write erotic fiction around & although very honest, it didn't for me blend as well. The devious ex-wife, the spoilt daughter, Sophies New career as a writer & beauty you-tuber were great sub-plots, perhaps it would have been better for Neil to return to England for his mother or is daughter or more controversial his ex-wife because of their business partnership. If there was a third book in the series -The Wife I am not sure I would buy it. It just didn't gel for me - but I did read it to completion.

I loved both of these books. It was well written, making the characters interesting. It made me laugh and cry and I couldn't' put them down. The only down side I felt it was a good pace throughout the book then it seem to finish too quick at the end and that's why I didn't give it 5 stars.
Still well worth reading.

Didn't enjoy this book as much as the first.
While I appreciate the subject matter of Neil's illness is a serious one.
It over took the story line too much for me. And made the book very depressing.
Full marks to the author for attempting such a serious topic though.

This book is all about Neil's illness, and how Sophie and he get thought his treatment. However, I found it very distracting the over use of the word "super" to describe almost anything. Super excited - super gorgeous, super thrilled, super guilty. There was no need for any adjective for many of the "super's", and it is lazy on the part of the author that she barely used anything other than super!
Anyway, despite Neil's treatment, there were threesomes, sex clubs (very Night and Day) and more kinky exploration of each other. Not as good as the first book (which I read in about 2 days solid) as the bedroom scenes felt a bit contrived. Also as they didn't have their jobs and the people at work to focus on to break up the monotony, so it felt very inward facing. Sophie must have felt desolate and terribly lonely during the worst of Neil's treatment, but the book never touched on that a great deal.
All In all, an OK book, but a bit of a let down from the first one.

This was a great read. It follows the experience of dealing with a partner with cancer and really pulls at the heart strings. The characters grow on you and it becomes quite a rollercoaster of emotions as they face this fight together whilst still having a very fulfilling and kinky hot sex life! Will be reading the next one soon and I imagine it's a trilogy I'll come back to. It sure beats many of the trashy, lazy romantic erotica that have no real story behind them and if you must compare with 50 it beats it hands down!

I enjoyed the first book so I immediately downloaded this one to continue the story. I have been drawn into the story and it has not been an easy one to stomach because of what Neil is going through. I was disappointed with the ending as it seems very rushed and unfinished. There is nothing to say that there will be another book to bring their story to an end and if there was I would buy it because I feel as if I have only read 3/4 of a book.

This book was a stomach turner for me. The whole story had the potential to be beautiful and inspiring, there's too much sadness in this world, so unless I'm reading a biography, I don't see the need for so much heartache. The book was well written, with nothing standing out that spoils the reading experience, I just wasn't comfortable with the subject matter.

what a fantastic read, following the ups and downs they go through as a couple and dealing with cancer. the characters grow with every page you read and the story becomes a roller-coaster of emotions. new characters are added very well as same characters from the first book continue to move the story along. again have book three 'the bride' at the ready.

I didn't enjoy this as much as the first book, not because of the illness. I found elements of it verged on abuse and debased sophie as a human being. Although I am reading the next one though because I do want to know what happens and I do like the characters overall. I just can't give it a higher score.Sorry.
