Roxy’s marriage has always been rock solid. After twenty years, and with two carefree kids, she and Dave are still the perfect couple. Until the day she comes home unexpectedly, and finds Dave in bed with their attractive, single neighbour. Suddenly Roxy isn’t sure about anything – her past, the business she’s taken over from her dad, or what her family’s future might be. She’s spent so long caring about everyone else that she’s forgotten what she actually wants. But something has changed. And Roxy has a decision to make. Whether it’s with Dave, or without him, it’s time for Roxy to start living for herself…
To be honest, I actually found this book quite tough to read! I really really enjoyed it, but it was a tough story. I was absolutely shocked at the attitudes of Roxy’s friends and even her mother in this book. From the beginning there were insinuations that Dave cheating was partly Roxy’s fault and that she should get over it. Dave treated her so poorly, even telling her she was selfish and hurting his feelings when she didn’t respond to his “apologies”. I was rooting for Roxy throughout the book but I also found her extremely infuriating at times. Every time Dave said something mean, or her mother said something that put blame on her, she had the right response in her head but never said anything. Dave was one of my least favourite characters ever. I don’t know why nobody ever noticed he spoke to Roxy terribly, even in public. The book itself was really good and the story was so infuriating but a relevant story for so many. I would highly recommend this book!
