Girlfriend, let me tell you! I don't usually read fiction books but I did decide to participate in this blog tour. Something about the title, I guess. When I finally sat down to read this book, I could not stop. I read it for four hours straight! My kids and hubby could hear me saying things like, "No he didn't", and "What?" and "Ooooh that is sooo bogus!" It's one of those kinds of book y'all! It also had me looking at my hubby kinda funny. "Um, where did you say you were last night"?
Seriously though, this book is not for everyone. It supposed to be a Christian book, but there are a lot of intimate details that perhaps could have been left out. It's a hot and steamy read about adultery in the church. Say it ain't so! While it is raunchy at times, it shows what can happen when you take your eyes of of God and try to fix your marriage your own way. Uh yeah, I think I'm straight!
Eventually reconciliation takes place and the books ends in a way that left me misty-eyed. It's a good book if you can handle it. ; )
