Resilient and practical, Kara Barton has continually strived to live a respectable life. She went to college, embarked on a promising career as an attorney, married a great guy, and always appeared to be the perfect wife and mother. But all is not what it seems, and the troubling past Kara has been running from her entire life is about to catch up with her. Urged on by her insecurities about growing older, and desperately wanting to feel one more night of passion, Kara agrees to share a tryst in a hotel room with a sexy business associate, Scott Ellsworth. But Scott wants more than one night together, and Kara quickly discovers it is impossible to resist him. Soon Kara finds herself transformed into the kind of woman she vowed never to become, and the secure world she has struggled all her life to build begins to fall apart. Kara Barton is about to find out how a one-night stand can change everything.
My Review
I don’t like spoiler reviews but in this case I can’t really talk about it without giving spoilers. So check out my Goodreads’ Quick Review for a non-spoiler review.

From the first pages, I thought I was really going to like Kara. Here she was confident and everything I’d want to be at her age. Then I found out the truth. Kara was married. I was repulsed. As the story unfolded I tried to find fault in her husband to justify her actions and really found none. She’d made her bed, so as far as I was concerned, she should lie in it.

In walks Scott. And I wanted to believe that he was everything he portrayed himself to be. But after the ball, unlike Kara, I knew what he was and didn’t understand why she didn’t see it. She was a lawyer. She could smell a lie, yet she didn’t get it. After advice from professionals, she went with her gut.

The end surprised me. And not so much the conclusions she came to but the circumstances behind the light that dawn in.

I read the majority of the book straight through, stopping a few times. The reason it wasn’t a 5 star because I could put the book down if I wanted to. 

Overall, very entertaining. This was another book like the one I posted yesterday that is a complete cluster fuck on the part of the main female.

My book boyfriend Cal. (And I never doubted him from the beginning to the end of the story) However, I will give you both Cal and Scott.
