Breaking point broke my heart Rafe is really married to two women One he shares his bed with the other he shares everything else in his ife with including intimate details about his marriage to Tanya After two years Tanya finally calls him up on his behavior and issues an ultimatum to Rafe between her and Niki Rafe s PA I really iked Tanya a ot She was a smart woman who had to figure out for herself where she was willing to stand and what she was willing to accept in a relationshipThe reason I give this book a 4 stars is because the reasoning behind the resolution made absolutely no sense She just decides to go back out of nowhereI also had some problem with the so called rape scene I m actually not sure if you could call it one considering the circumstances During the act Tanya iked Rafe s being out of control she enjoyed having that power she didn t say no to him and was receptive but The Accidental Beauty Queen later she accuses him of rape I highly enjoyed the secondary characters the grandmother harry and even Niki Breaking Point fulfilled all my expectations of enjoyablerawsexy romanceI had only planned to read one page and then return to writing my History Essay that is nearing its deadinebut after that one page i was instantly hookedand simply forgot all about the worldgahh i hate when that happens to me sometimesThis book is simply about a married couple that have been married for 2 years and are very insanely in ove with each otherbut are nearing the breaking point because there are so many misunderstandingsfears and insecurity in their relationshipWhile our hthe stead fast and determined Tanya Carlton despises her husband s close friendship with his secretary of 10 yearsand that he sees her as his possession instead of eual

Stars, love with each otherboth extremely possessiveand simply can tive without each otherI justGAAHH I LOVE THEM 4 12 Stars When Rafe asked Tanya to marry him she d been blissfully happy Now two years in Tanya had come to some harsh realizations Yes their passion for each other was still combustible all it took was a ook and their desire sparked but Tanya couldn t help feeling that was her only role in Rafe s ife He was a very successful property developer well respected his acumen in high demand Rafe had compartmentalized his ife there was his work and then there was his marriage Never did the two mix unless Rafe needed his very beautiful wife on his arm at a business function Every effort Tanya made to earn about Rafe s business was cleverly brushed aside and she couldn t help but feel inadeuate It seemed Rafe spent time and shared of himself with his very sexy blond assistant than he did with Tanya Niki had become the c Very intense read about infidelity and the devastation and destruction it creates I particularly This Forsaken Earth liked that we got both POV s which is important given the dynamics of the plot I thought the heroine was well written A woman that is incredibly strong but can still succumb and be shaken by the passion she feels for her husband It s the passionove and chemistry that keep her fighting for her marriage But she is unwilling to compromise and accept The Summer Palace: A Captive Prince Short Story (Captive Prince Short Stories Book 2) less from her marriage She knows that chemistry alone won t buy herong term happiness The secondary characters were incredibleespecially Harry and her grandmother They really added to the dynamics of the story The best The Garden of Happy Endings line in the book is when Grandma tells Rafes It has always been my opinion Bea said musingly that there can beworse kinds of infidelity than the merely sexual I have really see sawed on whether to read this book I started it and red flags uickly went up I have been perusing the reviews to get a better picture and I finally came to the conclusion that I should follow my instinctsview spoilerThough this book does not involved TECHNICAL cheating the husband does cross theine when unbeknownst to his wife he discusses his private marital problems and seeks the advice of the than happy to provide a shoulder to cry on and possibly other body parts to Campfire lay on OW executive assistant For me personally this violation of privacy and utter betrayal and humiliation hurts far far than if he had been engaging in an emotion free physical affair Emotional cheating is a thousand times worse than the mechanics of cheating in my book So I won t be reading this because this will make me fling my beloved Kindle against the wall hide spoiler I don t know why people are saying this is a book about cheating There is no cheating in any form whatsoever The hero was definitely oblivious and stupid but never unfaithful I never doubted hisove for his wife but he definitely My Little Blue Dress lacked some brain cells Still Ioved his crazy jealousy and possessiveness The heroine was fantastic though She was strong and very mature for her age She wouldn t back down and she stood her ground but it was clear she was head over head over heels in Hurrah For The Blackshirts!: Fascists and Fascism in Britain Between the Wars love with Rafe Still she knows that without commitment respect and honesty their marriage will fail So glad she didn tose her baby towards the end This book has a really good and emotional story inside Rafe and Tanya had such a great story with amazing chemistry Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life lots of drama and intense feelings I couldn t put it down TRIGGERSI have slept on it and I m just not going to rate this book I am just going to rantLet s be honest He rapes her There is no other word for it No point sugar coating it She decided to forgive him and move on justike many women did back when the story was written or even now may be good for them may be shame on them I don t know I don t judge But that s what happened RapeAnd this is where it stops being a romance novel for meOn top of that there was "immense amount of emotional cheating and the hero hurting the heroine with his jabs She pointed things out in plain "amount of emotional cheating and the hero hurting the heroine with his jabs She pointed things out in plain yet he was stubborn and didn t agree to them because it made Crazy Love life aittle inconvenient for himHe wanted a willing wife in bed who will keep her mouth shut but will also be madly in Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society love with him Hell give her physical intimacy will tell her heoves her but not give her emotional intimacy But she s way above the colleague physically He s not ever physically attracted to ANYONE else so the OW can t blame him for eading her onThen he wanted his mistress on the side with whom he d share all the intellectual side and all the emotional intimacies and never ever sleep with her But she s way above the wife intellectually so the wife can t blame him of cheatingThis is a classic case of narcissism It was all about him He wanted two seperate woman In my honest opinion he was carrying out a bigamist relationship And that was revolting He just refused to see it I would have forgiven it if he couldn t see it but he refused to see itAnd because he is a narcissist when he s preferred way of ife is threatened the first time he rapes the heroineThe second time he accuses the heroine of cheating on him and uestions the parentage of the child when he knows what he was saying was bullshitWhich resulted in the heroine almost osing the baby and ending up getting a concussionI m not even going to get into on how they dealt with the fact that the protagonist was a rapist and the grandmother may or may not have decided it was wicked in a good waySo they have worked out their issues They saved their marriage Good for them Very positive thinking However from where I m seeing this the heroine survived rape cheating allegations near death experience and close call to miscarriage To me this was a continuous chronicle of abuse and apologies I d personally run the other direction I really enjoyed this The characters were grounded in our Earth dimension but it was very well done and I didn t mind I do sort of wish that we d stepped into HP world to have an OTT scene of the OW being exposed and ridden out
Of Town On A Rail However It Was A Good town on a rail however it was a good for the Hh relationship when the H finally caught on and saw the h s POV without a big scene Men can be SO blind to female bitchery I ve been the object of or witness to it with my husband RIGHT BESIDE ME and he never caught on I suppose if there are no threats of ass beatings or actual brawls it doesn t register with many males Huh What are you talking about You re imagining things She s a nice person ughAs far as cheating there was no physical cheating and no sexualromantic feelings towards the OW on the H s part IMHO He did misplace his oyalty and had to be pushed to get a clue howeverBoogenhagen spoils this well if you need detail I enjoyed this one This is an interesting contrast to Lindsay Armstrong s The Director s Wife which I also read today Both are stories of a marriage in trouble because the wife feels she is only a sexual object and not an integral part of the hero s ife outside the domestic realm What worked for me. The honeymoon was overRafe had wanted Tanya the moment he saw her When he proposed she'd been deliciously happy happy to give up her job without a second thought and devote hers. ,

compartmentalized by her real estate tycoon husband into nothing than a convenient urve club object while his real The Ballad of Dorothy Wordsworth life takes place by the side of another woman who is also his employee and ten years older than the h This one is controversial in reader ratings some people see it as a cheating story while others see it as aack of marital communication exploration I have views on this when don t I LOL But before I get into the spoilerization I am going to explain the origins of the word infidelity and hope that you keep that in the back of your mind as I dish the details on this bookThe word infidelity comes from the Old French infid it where it was derived from the older Latin word infidelitatem which iterally means unfaithfulness or disloyalty to a person originally this was meant as disloyalty to a ruler or an overlord but over time became associated with disloyalty to the vows with your spouse Most specifically the traditional marital contract in the wedding service that states What God has joined Pretty Reckless (All Saints High, let no man put asunder So when the word becomes a part of the Englishanguage it iterally means that an infidel is a person who has proven unfaithful to their vow and disloyal to their partner they have et someone else sunder the two shall be as one concept of marriage As the years progress and the anguage changes to our modern parlance infidelity commonly means that one spouse goes outside the relationship for their physical gratification But that is a common inference the original meaning of disloyalty to another person has not changed In whatever form that may be it is the disloyalty that creates a distance that is the act of infidelity not the form it takes This book opens with a very unhappy h she has been married for two years and it is becoming increasingly apparent to the h that she is a very distant second place in her husband s ife He is very preoccupied with business and the ady who helps him run that business So much so that the only times the H and h are really together is in bed and she is a bit tired of being treated as an empty headed urve object The H continually neglects to spend anytime that isn t in bed with the h he doesn t even bother to call home when he is going to be hours ate any and when the h protests this treatment he just seduces her all over again The h is just as passionate as the H is so it isn t the urve mojo that is the problem It is the fact that the H refuses to have children refuses to confide ANYTHING personal to the h and really uses the h as a responsive blow up doll that has her so agitated Especially since the H is all too willing to share and strategize with his Paper Chasers lovely blonde co worker who treats the h with all the
