Babbling Chatter Read's REVIEW

Babbling Chatter Reads 4 Hearts RatingCristina’s Rating: 4 of 5 Hearts

Cristina's Thoughts #BabblingChatterReadsThis is the first book I had read by this author and it has topics that any married couple can relate to during some time in their relationship. It entailed subject matters where any person who has doubts and questions about their other half can lead to twisted perceptions and assumptions. But when that one person comes along who takes an interest in you, your mind tends to wonder more and the “what ifs” thoughts becomes forefront into your reality.

We have married couple Nathan and Sadie Hunt who everyone who knows and seen them together as having the perfect marriage. Nathan is a hopeless romantic and has always put his wife on a pedestal. Does everything for her and because of her. Being together and experiencing things for so long they know everything about one other or do they? Then out of the blue the actions of Nathan changes to a standoffish and darker side of him that has Sadie examining their relationship deeper and where the feelings of loneliness come into play.

“For us, romance is these stolen moments to ourselves. It’s taking you in a theater full of people because we can’t survive another second without it.”

Cue in the neighbor across the hall with the green eyes, Finn Cohen who has her starting to feel something again. Sparks that Sadie is missing from her husband is coming from a person she least expected. As days, weeks, and even months passes by the connection between the two of them begin to grow more and into territory that they begin to explore.

“I will love you the same in the dark as I do in the light.”

This was a hard, frustrating, and a nervous read but yet justifiable. The book addresses situations that couples face with, communication being the most important in any type of relationship. If one does not talk or one avoids the bigger problem it can leads to something worse. The author opens the reader’s eyes to the issues and will have you looking at your own marriage. Although the author wrote the overall meaning behind the story well, the end was slightly rush and just ok but for some reason it fitted all of the characters completely. I do not want to disclose any spoilers on what will happen but rather that you keep an open mind when it comes to their story.
