Publisher's Summary

With her signature wit and charm, bestselling author Elizabeth LaBan shows how marriage doesn’t necessarily follow a straight line and unexpected detours might just bring you back to the place you most want to be.

When she finds out her husband cheated, Hannah Bent thinks her marriage is over. Isn’t that what happens after an affair? But she’s seen friends divorce, and it’s not pretty. Plus, she and Joel have kids and an otherwise-happy life, and she still loves him, although begrudgingly.

Furious and feeling stuck, she suggests having her own affair to even the score. Joel, desperate for forgiveness, agrees. But does she really want to go through with it? And how exactly does a married mother of two get back in the dating pool? Many awkward dates follow until she finds a deep and unexpected connection where she was least looking for it.

Just as she thinks she’s made a decision, her journey to happiness is waylaid by storms of doubt. But the important thing is that she’s finally figuring out what she truly wants for herself, and she understands that whatever choice she makes must be hers and hers alone.

Great audible book narrated by Erin Bennett

This book is the first I’ve read by Elizabeth LaBan and...now I plan to read her other books.

Loved it!

I really enjoyed the story and characters. It drew me in right away. Overall, it was entertaining, light and fun, although Hannah was dealing with a very tough issue. Great book!

Love pains

This was a entertaining and uncharacteristically funny perspective on infidelity. Poor Hannah she was so caught up that she lost sight of the purpose of her threat. Joel was almost unbelievable in his efforts to save his marriage. This story was a desperate comedy of hurt and pain.

Pretty good

I enjoyed this book and could relate to alot of it. I liked the story and the premise but I found it just a little hokey in the execution.
