Because the house where he waits is where I laid my head to rest every night for eight years. Until last night.
No one who knows me would believe Charlie Pierce, the quiet, bookish girl who never made waves is pulling out of the driveway of a man who isn’t her husband.
But they don’t know me at all.
I don’t even know me.
They say there are two sides to every story, and I suppose in most cases, that’s true. But the one I live inside of? It has three.
On the northeast side of town, there is a house.
But there is no longer a home.

Genre: Contemporary Romance. Emotional.
Actual Rating: 4.5 stars
WWWHHHYYYYY!?!?!? Leaving us readers hanging like this is NOT OKAY. Sigh... I know I only have to wait a few days but this is absolutely KILLING ME. Important Note: This book is an emotional romance. It is the first book in the duet and ends in a cliffhanger. This book DOES contain cheating and a love triangle. For some people, this is a hard limit and that's okay. For me, they are not. They only tend to bother me when they are full of malice and utter disrespect (which I don't feel like this book had or was). So be aware of all of this prior to jumping in. Now, if you love an angsty romance, one that will rip open your heart, and HOPEFULLY put it back together again, then this is YOUR book. I'm glad I read it. I was touched, emotional, and basically had a roller coaster of feelings from it. I will be reading the next book the SECOND it comes out as well. You probably will too if you heed my warnings. EEEKKK!!!!!
I am not going to sit here and relay this book to everyone because you can read the synopsis for that. Also, I don't want to spoil it for potential readers. It's the type of book you need to read and feel on your own without outside influence. I will say that I did like it. Once I had a chance to sit down and zone out I got to read it in ONE sitting. It's a hard book to put down. There is so much going on, so much emotional turmoil wrapped into the pages, and a whole lot of angst that it's hard to look away from. As I mentioned above, there is a love triangle. While it's not the most comfortable thing to read about (who would ever want to be in their positions) it does show another side of humans that is prevalent every day. It also shows the flaws, and how easy it is to succumb to feelings that you have held close to for so long.
I very much recommend this book to those who can see past the forbidden aspects of the story. I think once it is all wrapped up we'll feel better about everything that is happening in these characters lives.
As with all duets, these books must be read in order!
