my review

5 Stars

This second chance romance was nothing like I thought it would be.

The wife. The mother. The truth.  I read this – The Wife’s blurb and wasn’t totally sure what Alexa’s romantic adventure would be.  I was intrigued and curious.  Would she work things out with her husband or have a torrid affair??  I had no clue.

I was not prepared for the emotional journey that I took with the main character. It was like S.P Cervantes reached inside of my chest and gripped my heart – not letting go until the very end of the book.  She captured and imprinted the feelings of one women’s insecurity and her pain. I believe if the author wanted her reader’s to truly experience Alexa’s heartache and angst, she succeeded.

However by the time I finished reading, I felt that the strength of the book’s plot was not about me feeling her heartache – it more about how I felt when Alexa realizes her own personal truths.  When she allowed herself a second chance at happiness and love – it evoked such incredible delight in me.  It made for an amazing story.

I truly enjoyed The Wife and highly recommend it.
