Because of You by Candy Caine

A Steamy BWWM Interracial Romance.
Defying her parents by marrying Adam, a white man, Jill Stone believes love conquers all. And throughout Adam's rise as an executive in a large New York advertising agency, Jill bottles up her unhappiness about his long hours and many trips out of town. But when their sizzling love life fizzles, she can't keep quiet anymore. She wants him home. More. And in her bed.

Adam recognizes his marriage is going down the tubes, but can't exorcise the demons of Jill's parents thinking he isn't good enough for her, and the fear that he might somehow end up a failure like his father. He has to succeed. At all costs. To compound his problems, his latest boss is a gorgeous blonde who takes one look at Adam's buff, six foot-two body and doesn't make any bones about wanting him. Any way she can get him.

A page turner story Jill and Adam are married and have been for 8 years and like most marriages they are experiencing some turbulence in their relationship. Their communication has totally broken down. Jill goes against her family to marry a white man they class as “white trash”. They believe that Adam is not good enough for their daughter. Jill goes against her parents and marries the love of her life. Her parents totally disown her and to add insult to injury, her sister also marries a white man and her parents blame her for that also. Jill is a traditional wife, she has her husband’s dinner on the table ready for him each night and tries to keep the peace in her home. Her self-esteem and belief in herself is low. Adam is an only child from two dysfunctional parents. His father was a drunk, abusive husband and his mother took drugs and neglected him as a child. Adam feels the weight of Jill being disowned by her parents to marry him. He tries to compensate for this by working all the hours God gives to make himself into a successful Executive for his company, for his wife and to prove to her family that he is not a failure like his father. Adam’s efforts to prove himself worthy of Jill puts stress and tension on their marriage because he is neglecting their relationship. They hardly spend any time together and their love life has come to a standstill because Adam is always tired. Adam tells Jill to find a hobby to fill in her spare time. Jill finds something that she has a skill for and the tables are turned in the relationship. Jill becomes more confident and sure of herself through the success of this change she has made in her life. Through her new-found success and self-assurance Jill challenges the status quo in her relationship with her husband. This causes Adam to examine his controlling and unsupportive attitude towards Jill. Just at the point where they are resolving the issues in their relationship one unfortunate incident and one tragic accident could put their new found understanding into jeopardy. The author examines and exposes the neglect and pressure couples bring to their relationships/marriages by allowing their communication to break down. Not making time to express how each partner is feeling about everyday life pressures that we all must face can bring complacency and distrust to any marriage/relationship. I found the story engrossing and a page turner and I would recommend this book! -Reviewed by Marcia
