Alex and Lara have been together a while and have a 6 month old boy and this book highlights the everyday struggles of many couples who have to navigate work and family life and the emotional & financial strain that accompanies that.
Alex was inherently a good man who loved his wife and son but he had dreams that weren't always conducive to a happy family life...in real terms he wanted his cake and to eat it too...he was a little selfish.
We had Lara...a struggling mum...looking to go back to work but exhausted and at times very sad...needing support but often finding that she was alone.
This book covered some sensitive topics from Lara's work to PND but it felt very real...my stomach was in knots from almost the first page to the last...waiting for something that I felt was coming!
This book is about loving and living with the best we have...it's about learning and supporting each other...I loved that the characters weren't wealthy...they really struggled and this is a refreshing element from other books,it added a different dimension.
I was team Lara but I did understand Alex's POV and I felt that the direction the book went in was very real and very right for the characters, and most of all I did believe in their love for each other.
The secondary characters added depth and I adored David.....can't wait for more of him!?
I loved every nail biting page and cannot wait for more!
I thought the story was fresh and new in that as a romance it dealt with a couple who were already together - were actually married - rather than the story of two people getting together. It looked at what happens when real life events put pressure on a relationship, and how people can be potentially tempted away from those they've made a commitment to stay with.
It was realistic and gritty - but not so gritty that it didn't give the reader any romance! There was romance aplenty in this story as we were shown flashbacks to when Lara and Alex fist got together, as well as scenes in the present day which showed how much they still meant to each other. The plot kept me guessing and I wasn't sure if either of them would stick with each other.
The characters were compelling, well rounded and felt real. Alex and Lara both hurt each other emotionally in the story, which I thought was true to life and refreshing. The story kept me reading on to find out what would happen to them. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a romance with a difference - a passionate story about two people who're already together, but trying to work out what being together means to them and if they both want it.
way this author writes making everything seem so real and the story captured me from the beginning. It was also nice to have Niall and Beth in the
story too as you get to see how things are progressing with them too. This story copes with love, loss, tragedy, jealousy, and has lots of drama in it which I love. They have both been married for a few years and now have a baby boy called Max which gives them a whole new set of problems to deal with plus Alex is a budding singer in a band and that also creates a lot of drama within the book. You never knew what was going to happen next. The only slight criticism I have is that it is set in the present and only occasionally gives a very small amount of detail about how Alex and Lara met. I would have liked it to be like the story of Beth and Niall where it went back in time to see more of their previous lives and it would have been nice to know how Alex had proposed to Lara and also about the wedding. I felt there could have been more from that side of the story. But otherwise it was a great read for me. I'm so excited to read the next one Book 3 and I hope we don't have to wait too long for it.
Alex is the sweetest guy though a complete idiot at time, he loves his family so much but doesn't want to lose his identity and carries on playing the rock star. Lara is an amazing strong female and tries to support everyone else as she is crumbling. Great original story,well written, believable human character that will have you laughing and crying right to the brilliant HEA
