I understand how adultery happens. I know, your first thought is "Of course you understand -- you're a cheater." That's true, but that's certainly not the whole story.
That's always what a cheater says, right? Once again, you are correct. If you're looking for a typical romance, then run -- run far.
After ten years of marriage I realized my husband barely touched me anymore. There was the obligational monthly sex, but even that was starting to fizzle. I was twenty-nine and he thirty-two. We should've been doing it like bunnies, night and day, or at least a couple of times a week, to be more realistic. But that hadn't happened in years.
It didn't hit me until I'd been gone a couple of weeks. Then when I got home we both fell asleep that night, me snuggled up against his back like we always slept. But that's all we did. We just ... slept.
No big deal, you say?
Wrong. It was a very big deal.
It was that night I realized we had a real problem.
What I didn't know yet was what to do. Would I stay in a marriage that was killing us both, or would I go with Kaden . . . I'm torn . . .

Miranda has been married 10 years when she realizes how her marriage has changed. She and her hubby are no longer hungry for each other as they were when they first got married. They very rarely even talk or see each other any more. Miranda's new job with her sexy new boss could taint that marriage. Kaden desires Miranda and he isn't afraid to show it. This is a very good read. Melody Anne has a way of writing so you want to keep reading. I am off to read the next one in this series.

If you are looking for a book that is riveting, that makes you think and one that is full of love, romance and heartbreak - then Torn by Melody Anne is the perfect pick for you. I was intrigued by the synopsis of the book and once I read the first chapter I was absolutely hooked. I found myself feeling sorry for the main character Miranda - she thought she had it all - love, marriage and she finally graduated University ... but then her life as she knew it began to unravel before her eyes. I personally enjoyed the now and then ... it gave a great perspective of how things came to be. It was great to see how Mason (Miranda`s husband) and Miranda`s relationship evolved - and it didn't jut change over night. I thought it was a great writing technique by Anne to help the readers have perspective on why Miranda ended up in the predicament that she did. It was great also because we got to see the first time Kaden and Miranda met - it also helped to gain some perspective on the relationship. I felt bad for Miranda because she was exactly what the title of the novel suggests - Torn between two men and two lives. The life she has with Mason, although it isn't much of a life - they are both leading separate lives, it is the comfort and familiarity. Her life with Kaden is just that, a life - they have feelings for one another, they challenge each other and they are drawn to one another ... like a moth to a flame. I was definitely impressed with this story line and characters, they felt real and the story line was almost too real - even though the author put a disclaimr at the front of the book. You could feel Melody's pain in some of the lines and you felt for both Miranda and Melody (author) as it was such an emotional story. I definitely want to read the second book in the series to find out what happens next - can Miranda save her relationship with Mason, or is it too late? Can Kaden and Miranda ever truly be together? These are both questions that I definitely want answered. If you are looking for a love, sweet, romance - then this is not the book for you. This is a book about, love, discovery, betrayal and new beginnings. Melody Anne has created a story line that speaks to the heartbreak of marriage - the things that most people don't let you see, but Torn allows you to see the breaking down of a marriage and the feelings in adultery. I definitely recommend this book and suggest you add it to your To-Be-Read Shelf.

"But I'll tell you the true story. I'll show you how far a person can fall. But within the fall, what we may figure out is that only then can we soar. I was ready to fly. I just had to let go of my guilt in order to do that." Now, this quote sounds pretty awful once you've read the blurb for this story. And if y'all know me, you know I HATE a cheater, but lately I've been hit with some really great stories that explore the grey area most people are afraid to talk about in such a situation. Does this mean I'm going to be any more forgiving if someone cheats on me? Absolutely not. Does this mean I'm not a fan of stories featuring a cheater? Also, no. But I am now intrigued about the story and the feelings involved in making a decision this huge. When this story began, I was immersed in the relationship between Miranda and her husband, Mason. I felt like I was in the relationship with them: I felt the disappointment, the hurt, the confusion, and even the guilt. It was a relationship I'm not sure I would have survived in. What hurt me the most was seeing how these two went from blissfully happy to simply existing. How does that happen? Where does the relationship just break down and allow those in it to lose sight of what they mean to each other? "Forever isn't long enough when it's right. And at that moment, it was exactly right. It felt as if it could never change. I'm utterly heartbroken when I realize it does change -- that love doesn't always last forever. When things began to dissolve more, it was Miranda's mind that intrigued me. Since I could only see her husband through her eyes, his actions may be a bit skewed, but it seems that something is going on with him. Is it an affair? I have no idea. But he is definitely focused outside of his marriage. Once Miranda allows herself to let go of her reservations and begins to look away from her husband, it begins a whole new batch of emotions within her. This was where I really began to wonder what would happen between all of them and what had led them to where they were. "Neither of us were evil people. We were human. We were complicated. We made mistakes. Did that mean either of us should have been damned? No. What did it mean, then? That, I honestly didn't know then, and I still don't know now." I'm dying waiting on Tattered. This story isn't your typical romance, but it's intriguing and I want to find out what brought everyone to the point they make decisions that can affect their whole world.
