Sharing You by Molly McAdams ♥♥
Sharing You by Molly McAdams is a book I decided to read with heavy reservations. I have really enjoyed some of her books, like the Forgiving Lies series, and extremely furious reading some of the others, like Taking Chances.
The short version of this story is Kamryn runs away from her rich, pretentious family so she can liver her own life on her own terms. Brody is in a marriage with a crazy woman he feels too bad to leave. Brody and Kamryn literally run into each other and fall in love before they know anything about the other person. They feel bad about what they feel for each other considering Brody is still married, and we watch that unfold.
I usually enjoy stories that explore the dilemmas surrounding infidelity, but this one was kind of boring. Brody didn’t love his wife, or even like her. Kamryn didn’t have anything at risk other than her reputation in a relatively small town. And while Brody’s wife was crazy, threatening Brody’s finances, it seemed like she didn’t really have that much she could really do. When it came down to it, there wasn’t much at stake for either of the characters, especially considering Brody’s family wanted him to leave his wife. Ultimately, the story was a bit boring.
Has anyone else read any of Molly McAdams’s books? What did you think? Inquiring minds would like to know.
