How do I begin? This book was just…wow! As soon as I saw the synopsis I told myself, "I have to read this one". I like the books that push my boundaries and are risqué. And this one did not disappoint! This book is not romantic, it is raw, gritty, and speaks of things that are not for the faint of heart. Some people won't read it based on the cheating, but those things don't bother me in books.

The writing was good, the storyline, although harsh, was brilliant. You have a +40 year old woman who gets approached by a 20 something year old boy and they have this connection from first eye contact. Kate is a mother of 2 girls who is married to Robert. Robert is a lawyer and works a lot of hours. Jaylee is the young boy who can't seem to stay out of trouble.

As Kate spends more time with Jaylee she realizes she can't enough of him. She decides they need some time apart so she can think about their situation. Only to go and find out where he lives. When she shows up, Jaylee is a jerk. He's pissed because she left and now he's gonna show her what's up. They have sex. And it sucks for Kate. Yes you read that right. He zoned out and took care of himself and had no feelings during the encounter. You would think Kate would be done right? Nope, she wasn't.

Jaylee can't get enough of Kate. But Kate knows nothing can come of the relationship other than an affair because she won't leave her family. Only Robert finds out about Jaylee and things go from bad to worse.

I don't want to give away the story because from this point it gets wild, but know I was grabbing my hair and yelling at Robert, Kate and Jaylee at different points. This story is very different from what's out today. And the end, FUCK! What the fuck did you do to me Mara? Talk about leaving me hanging!!
