The life I have lived for the past ten years is built solely on lies and secrets.
But I can’t help myself.
I’m in love with two different men. And one of them is my brother-in-law.
He’s my drug. My fire. My addiction.
But he’s married to my best friend. And I’m married to my husband.
I’m not ashamed. I have no guilt.
I’m not fucked. I’m a fucked up person.
This is the story of how I ruined my life.
And the life of the one I loved most.
Review by Lorena
Oh my god, this book was everything I was expecting it to be and more!
I absolutely LOVED, loved this book and even though there is cheating involved, you have to read it in order to understand why.
I'm not kidding, I thought my heart was going to shatter as I read this beautiful book. I have nothing but praise for it.
I have started falling in love with this author's writing, her books turn me into an emotional mess and now I am hooked and addicted to her beautiful stories.
It was earth shattering to have to read this book because when two people fall in love and can't be together because of certain circumstances and the heartbreak and suffering they go through just to sacrifice their love to make others happy, made me completely and utterly sad.
It took a lot of will power for these two beautiful souls to stay away from each other but it was so devastatingly hard when all they could think about was being together, they were so consumed in each other and didn't want to hurt the people they loved.
But life isn't always fair and hearts get broken and there is deceit and lies involved in this story that really made me want to scream at the top of my lungs and wish these two people could find a way to be together without having to hurt anyone in the process.
Although they do end up sleeping together, while cheating on theirs spouses but the love they shared was just beautiful and they deserved to be together. The highs and low's they went through, just to get to where they wanted to be was tough. And of course, there are always villains and the villains in this book got what they deserved in the end!
We do get a total HEA in this magnificent book :)
Her books are definitely on top of my best reads for sure!!
5 HEARTBREAKING STARS
4.5 Star Review by Ashley
Well if I thought Callie Anderson did it to me with her Love Letter series, I don't even know what to say about what she did to me with Torrid Affair. As someone who has been cheated on, I am always nervous to read a book knowing it's going to be in there. But this one didn't feel sordid or wrong to me. It felt right.
That opening- wow- My jaw may've been on the floor but I was hooked. I loved the journey back to the start and how it all went wrong when everything was going so right. What I didn't know or expect was to find myself rooting for Nate and Brie because I knew, just as they did, that they were supposed to be together, consequences be damned.
There were so many twists and shocking turns that my heart was racing and aching to know what would happen next. Throw a scheming spouse into the mix and it was a match made in drama heaven. Brie's choice to try and help herself out of an awful situation changed the game for everyone. I admired the strength it took to make that choice, especially knowing how many lives it would effect. While I do feel the ending was a touch rushed, I also don't feel like I missed out on anything. All I can say is I want a Nate- for me.
