About this deal

Now a penniless widow, Marc has her right where he wants her…not with a ring on her finger, not even in the palm of his hand. She'll soon find that actually living with him is soooooooooooooo not the same as having an affair with him and always seeing him at his best.

I wish that the law would allow you to suit personality someone who sexually engages with another who is in a marriage agreement. What it should have said-this book follows a mistress that was dumped after a 5 year affair, suffering from severe depression through the entire book. I can forgive that awful, excruciating, pain-ridden lunch while the waitress hovered uncertainly around the uneaten food, a smile stretching her face as if it might snap, and I tried not to meet anyone’s eye. The journal follows Sally through her steady descent into madness as she obsesses over the things Clive said to her and his responses (he does respond to her desperate efforts to get in touch, sometimes. After very mixed reviews I was expecting a mediocre book, but no, this is a clever, dark and brilliant book.Many betrayed partners move on and let it be, while the mistress or the mister go on to enjoy the profits of the cheater spouse savings that truly belong to his/her kids. Unless you are signed in to a HubPages account, all personally identifiable information is anonymized. Clive had had countless affairs and broken many hearts, thank heaven one finally caught up with him.

Sally is the female protagonist and the entire book is written from her perspective, I loved getting into her mind, I liked the book format unlike others. She tells everything as if she was writing journal entries and explaining why she does the things she does. And her journal entries took on the form of letters to Clive Gooding, the man she was having a long term affair with. I couldn’t help but wonder if this was going to be just another formulaic female stalker novel, à la Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. such as: Adult diapers, large baby bottle, a paddle his mommy use to spank him with, dual nipple pacifier,etc.The book really lends itself to an audio book as it is mainly an woman's journal - which works well being read out loud. I expect your heart was rather painfully hammering, despite those warnings your doctor gave you to keep stress to a minimum. I can't say I liked any of the characters, Sally is hard to like at all, selfish, obsessed, her behaviour and all consuming affair takes over everything.

But eventually Sally loses her already wavering grasp on reality and has convinced herself of certain things that couldn’t be further from the truth. Sally is so obsessed with Clive and his life that she becomes increasingly distanced from her husband, and more shockingly, her children, she just doesn't comprehend how ridiculously she is behaving. If you like a book with a lot of psychological twists and are an avid lover of books that tackle everyday issues in a brutally honest way then you'd like this.Even if, in some alternate universe, if I was able to do these things, I don’t know that I would feel satisfied.
