Rating: ★★★★★

Synopsis: When Lauren and Ryan’s marriage reaches the breaking point, they come up with an unconventional plan. They decide to take a year off in the hopes of finding a way to fall in love again. One year apart, and only one rule: they cannot contact each other. Aside from that, anything goes.

Lauren embarks on a journey of self-discovery, quickly finding that her friends and family have their own ideas about the meaning of marriage. These influences, as well as her own healing process and the challenges of living apart from Ryan, begin to change Lauren’s ideas about monogamy and marriage. She starts to question: When you can have romance without loyalty and commitment without marriage, when love and lust are no longer tied together, what do you value? What are you willing to fight for?

It’s Spring! Book Tag

Adele Is Reading did this pretty tag and said anyone could participate, so here we go!

How is Spring where you live?

Spring in Florida is kind of a hit or miss thing. Sometimes it’s really hot, other times it’s cool, and other times from that it’s very rainy. It all depends on what Mother Nature plans for us that day. I’d prefer it to be cool for the entirety of the season, but that’s not going to happen.

Most anticipated book release this Spring?
