Midlife Crisis by La Jill Hunt
Midlife Crisis introduces readers to Sylvia and Garrett Blackwell, a couple who has been married for nearly 20 years, and Janelle, Sylvia’s sister who has an interesting story of her own.
The old saying where there’s smoke there’s fire is played out in the opening passage. La Jill Hunt doesn’t waste any time, and the story unfolds and erupts rather quickly with the revelation of a devastating deception.
Imagine being married for almost two decades and you find out your husband has an entire life that you know nothing about.
Sylvia has learned about Garrett’s deception, and she is grappling with the truth. This leads to her questioning life with the man she loves.
Oh, and the drama continues!
Janelle, Sylvia’s younger sister is single and juggling men and does something most women would consider foul to her best friend.
I enjoyed reading Midlife Crisis; it made me wonder if we ever truly know someone. This story had me turning the pages not wanting to put the book down, it kept me on my toes trying to guess what was going to happen next.
Sylvia was the most enjoyable to read. I loved how real she kept it with her sister especially when she felt she was out of line.
I also enjoyed the imperfections of the characters, they were flawed and relatable.
Midlife Crisis evoked so emotions within me and that’s what good stories do. And if that’s not enough, the book has a few steamy scenes that leave nothing to the imagination.
Hunt’s paced the story out well and the way she introduced and developed the characters was admirable. The story ends with some unanswered questions since it continues into the second book (Imitation of a Wife) in the Loyalty series. But those unanswered questions will make you want to read book two.
If you’re looking for a good read that tells the story of broken trust, love lost, love rekindled, and the struggle for forgiveness then this is the book for you!
