Author: Lilly Atlas
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Erotic Romance
Release Date: January 30, 2018
Alyssa Jackson is one of the lucky ones. She has a thriving business, great friends, devoted husband, adorable daughter, and a scorching hot sex life that would be the envy of any married couple. Then, one tragic loss flips her world upside down. Floundering and unsure of how to cope with their grief, Alyssa and her husband drift apart until they are living as roommates instead of a deeply connected couple. Alyssa will do anything to get the intense passion back into her life and marriage, no matter how far out of the box she has to step.

If there is one thing tattoo shop owner Derek knows, it’s that once he set his sights on his wife, he never wanted another woman. Years together haven’t begun to put a dent in his desire for her. But everything falls apart when the anguish of loss barges into their lives. Adrift in his own suffering, Derek doesn’t realize how damaged his marriage is until his wife forces him to confront their issues. Now, he’ll do whatever it takes to get their lives back on track, even if the plan seems outrageous.

AC Squared Book Blog – “As a whole I loved how different this book was. It wasn’t perfect, it wasn’t always happy, and it was just so real! We need more of this!”

This book was really good!!! I loved the story of Alyssa and Derek because it wasn’t a happy story, it was so real! They went through an incredibly hard situation that would be tough for ANY couple, and they were trying to find their way through it. This loss had completely through them for a loop and they didn’t even realize that they weren’t acting like husband and wife until it had been almost two years since the bad situation had started. I can totally see how getting caught up in the scenario they had would be so hard. To live through a tragic even and stay a happy loving couple just doesn’t happen. These two did pretty good considering the odds. BUT they did get through it and I loved how they did!!! I love that they used a sex therapist to get their crap together! Even better, I love how effective it was for them.

To admit that you are having trouble as a couple is hard, it’s even harder to take the steps it takes. They are so admirable for doing this!! I also loved that Derek had Brett and Lyss had her friend Roxie. These two supporting characters really helped shape this book and make it as good as it was. Roxie and Brett had a really key role in helping Lyss and Derek get their heads out of their butts. Sometimes it just takes a really good friend to give you a good shove and your good to go! Also, I love how HOT their sex life was! Even though they weren’t how they used to be, they were pretty adventurous! That part was super hot, even if it was so filled with emotion and even sometimes regret.

As a whole I loved how different this book was. It wasn’t perfect, it wasn’t always happy, and it was just so real! We need more of this!
