A Book In Review.


Brief Summary:

Beth Thomas has the perfect life. At thirty-five, she’s married to her college sweetheart, has two adorable kids, and teaches part time at the local university. But when a friend persuades Beth to go dancing on a rare night out, a chance meeting with twenty one year old Dave, one of her former students, changes the course of her life. Loud music, too much to drink, and the thrill of feeling young again lead to an unforgettable kiss that was never supposed to happen. As she tries to put the memory behind her, Dave’s pursuit leaves Beth torn between what her mind says is right and what her heart and body crave.


I received this book in exchange for an honest review. The internal struggle that the main character, Beth, goes through is so real it becomes painful for the reader at times. I don’t mean that in a bad way at all. I just mean it’s raw and real and makes the story so emotional. Beth’s journey at balancing her life and herself is captivating. I’ve had the same thoughts and conversations with myself at times, not about the same exact things, but it’s still a battle to be inside your own head. I was rooting for Beth’s happiness from the beginning and began to think of her as my own friend. I couldn’t put the book down, I read it in a day. I just needed to know how it ended. I recommend this 4.5 star book to anyone who loves a good story who keeps you on the edge of your seat. It’s a book that would be perfect for your next book club too, cause it could start conversations that could flow for hours. Xo.

  1. Thank you so much for going on the emotional roller coaster ride with Beth and with me. I know it’s not always easy. So glad you were able to relate to her struggles in some way and that the book held your interest. I really appreciate this very kind review and thank you also for being part of my blog tour!
