    "This book was okay. I got a free copy myself and did finish it but it's not something that i'd buy for my bookshelf. There's not alot of wow factor to this one."

    "This novel could provide some insight into troubled marriages to give some perspective or perhaps even some help with a current relationship experiencing similar problems. Because the book is written by a NYT best selling author is is almost assuredly a good read regardless of your situation. Though the book itself may romanticize certain behaviors, it is in fact still a work of fiction."

    "A slightly fresher take on a well-trod genre, the protagonists in this story are a little older than in the usual books of this type. The story is tumultuous and ridden with strife, but the writing leaves a bit to be desired. A nice pick-up for someone looking for a romance novel with a little something different, or someone looking to relate to older characters, but nothing that would be labelled as a classic."

    "This book is definitely about a troubled relationship. The man is obsessed with the woman in an unhealthy way. It seems like a decent book and one that fits the topic very well."
