Our thoughts...

I read this book in 24 hours. Jessica did a wonderful job of  weaving us into Sadie and Nathan’s marriage. This is an emotional read with cheating, so if cheating is not your thing DO NOT READ this book.  

We meet Sadie and Nathan 7 years into their marriage. In the last few months Nate has gone from doting husband to a distant acquaintance. Sadie is trying everything to make a connection with her husband again, at every turn she is pushed aside. During the process she learns of her own short comings in their marriage. 

When she meets Finn, the hot and sexy next door neighbor.  Sadie has been living in 2 months of hell, the love of her life won’t talk to her, won’t make love to her and the littlest things will set him off. The spark between Sadie and Finn is instant, but there is something else a sense of deja vu. What started out a innocent offers of 'being a good neighbor' turned into more.

Along the way Sadie learns that Finn is a huge believer in fate. Sadie, not so much, she believes that she is charge of her own life. When a memory from the past surfaces, Sadie realizes that she knows Finn, or at least has met him before. She confronts Finn as to why he kept this information secret.

We don’t see Nate and Sadie happy in this book, we just relive Sadie’s memories. This story is all Finn and Sadie; their past connection and possible future. The times that we do interact with Nate, I wonder what he's hiding, why he's so closed off. What changed and so quickly for that matter.

I was disappointed with the ending of this story. While reading it felt as it was going to be a  second chance romance. The ending felt rushed and there were some major topics were swept under the rug.  I am also a huge believer in epilogues, this story needed one.
