Review by: Mistletoe
After threatening divorce, Paige gives up her fantasy of hot sex with two men, especially when Tommy, the other man she wants to have sex with, is the reason for her divorce threats. When Paige confesses she’s considering leaving Jed to her best friend and owner of Freedom Fantasies sex club, life takes an unexpected turn. Paige finds herself pretending she’s having a hot, sordid affair.
Paige appreciates all the pleasures she’s unable to find at home. Being spanked in the corner, tied to the bed or getting it on in the shower, Paige experiences more orgasms than she thought possible. To heighten the excitement, her pretend lover brings in a friend…
Hoping to jolt him into trying to save their marriage, Paige asks Jed for a divorce. She is tired of playing second fiddle to his work and friends. Will Jed finally see how he is neglecting Paige or will he fail to act, and push Paige to explore her friend's erotic club Freedom Fantasies to find her relief?
This book was an interesting story about two people who love each other yet are drifting apart. Paige is a smart woman who only wants things back the way they used to be, when her husband paid attention to her and didn't neglect her. Jed is a strong man who loves Paige with all his heart, and to that end is willing to fight for her. He tries to balance his time between his wife, his job and his friends but it is much harder than he thought and his wife is the one who is being pushed to the side.
I enjoyed reading about a husband and wife who love one another enough that they are willing to fight for their marriage. Jed and Paige show us that there is hope, and love does exist. The bond that the two have was a wonderful read - especially while they try to fix their marriage, even to the point of bringing another person into their play. Jed and Paige share a bond that few of us ever find.
Amber Skyze brings the reader into a world of love and trust. Keeping you interested in the story all the way through to the end. I enjoyed this quick-paced and well-written story. With characters full of emotion this is a book that should be on everyone’s "to be read" list.
