After a drunken night for Cal in Vegas for his best friend’s bachelor weekend and his marriage is down the drain. The kicker? He doesn’t even recall what really happens. Being the stand up guy that he is he tells his wife, Shelly of his indiscretion and without further explanation and talking it out she is already done with the marriage and is seeking a divorce.
“You have to know, Shel, he’s gutted over this. No one will love you the way that he does. He will love you forever. Just think about that before you make any final decisions.”
This book seriously had me utterly frustrated within the first few chapters to the point that I wanted to throw the book and walk away. The lead female character was so stubborn (and that’s saying it nicely) that it made her seem weaker even though she was the one betrayed. Luckily, Cal convinced her to give him 8 weeks before following through any life changing decisions which got me curious for more and see what happens.
Cal is not your typical husband. He is in love with his wife since they first met and would do anything for her. It especially showed when he confessed what had happened as soon as he got home from his trip. He wanted to prove himself to Shelly and would go the extra miles to get her back. A 3 stars read that will make you look at any challenging situation in relationships as a whole even after being together for awhile/years and to determine how deep is the love? Is it worth fighting for? A good book of a married couple finding themselves as a person and as a one together again.
