    This is a Compelling read . 
    I received this book in exchange for an honest review. 




    Kate Champion is 42 and has 2 children. She's rich. Her husband is a lawyer, a very successful one. He's never home. A chance encounter with a complete stranger from the Heights turns all their lives upside down. 




    Wow I loved this. I couldn't put it down. It had me on the edge of my seat. I was entranced. I kept trying to guess what was going to happen, but I couldn't. 




    Kate is a wife who has it all. A hot Husband, money, looks. And time to herself. 




    Jaylee is 22, young, in a gang. 




    The connection between these two is like electric touching live wires. It's instant. 




    I am really not going to give anything away, because the least little thing I tell you will ruin it. 




    I love kate's character. She's someone everyone could identify with. she fights against her feelings with Jaylee, but they are like two moths to the flame. 




    The age difference is huge, 20 years. but she's right when she says if it was a man no know would say anything. 




    Mara does a fantastic job with this story. I think she got everything spot on. The way Mara acts with her husband, the addiction she feels with Jaylee. The constant thoughts trying to weigh everything up. 
    What can I say about Jaylee. You need to read it to understand. He's hot, possessive, intriguing. 




    I was trying to read this as fast as I could. But while I was reading it I could totally see this playing out in my head like a movie. This is a book I would love to see on the big screen. 




    At times I felt like shaking Kate and screaming at her. I felt sorry for her. I wanted to hide behind my hands in certain parts. 




    I CAN NOT wait for the next book. 




    Mara this book is stunning. It captures your attention from the beginning. It's exceptionally written. It stays with you after you've read it. I thought this book was AMAZING. 




    I would give this book 5/5 stars and 5/5 for movie moments.

    The writing is good the main character Kate however is not she cannot make up her mind or stand strong for her self. I  don't understand many of the decisions that she made throughout the entire story but that said the writing was good and I do feel invested into the characters enough to continue the series and see what happens to them. The cliffhanger at the end is brutal so  eware you might want to wait for the next one to be released.  If cheating is not your cup of tea or a weak herorine then skip this one but if your down for some 'GET IT TOGETHER GIRL' attitude then check out this story!
