When Sarah falls for Matthew, she falls hard. So it doesn't matter that he's 20 years older. That he sees her only in secret. That slowly but surely, she's sacrificing everything else in her life to be with him. Sarah's friends are worried. Her father can't understand how she could allow herself to be used like this. And she's on the verge of losing her job. But Sarah can't help it. She is addicted to being desired by Matthew. And love is supposed to hurt. Isn't it?

I kept waiting for this to get better, it almost did but had a disappointing boring ending. Unlikeable characters, especially Sarah & Matthew, the narrator tried her best to make it more interesting.

When Gabby first met Elliott she knew he was the man for her. In twenty years of marriage she has never doubted her love for him, but Gabby feels that time and her youth are slipping away. For the first time in her life she is restless. And then she meets the youthful Matt… And in one reckless moment she destroys all that she holds dear. Are some betrayals too great to forgive?

Enjoyable lighthearted read, a little predictable but that's ok to make it a rounded story that you want to end in this way.
