There is no way we can still love and cherish one and other.
When I married Theo Walsh, the rough, bearded townie who worked construction on my family’s summer house, I’d found my happily ever after.
That was before the fighting.
Before the jealousy.
Before the infertility.
We’ll be divorced long before death does us part.
But to secure my place in the family dynasty, there is just one more hoop I have to jump through. And I need him to do it.
Faking the marriage we once thrived in will gut me.
Especially with the secret I’m carrying.
I would have sacrificed for her until the end of time.
I’d given it all up to marry her. That’s how much I loved Imogen Weston, the daughter to one of the world’s richest families.
From the day we met, I’d done nothing but try to live up to the man she expected to be with. And now, I was done.
Sure, I’d complete this one final ask of hers, even if it destroyed me.
But I’ve made her promise the one thing that might save me. She swore that after she got everything she ever wanted, she wouldn’t look back.
I made my wife vow to leave me forever.
Have you ever read a book and realized that some fictional couples just aren’t meant to be? That you can fall for one of the characters wholly and fully but also know within the first couple of chapters that the woman he fell for doesn’t deserve him, at all!
Imogen is a princes, born with a silver spoon – but the kind of familial relationships she has grown up with, it is no wonder that she never developed a backbone; mostly ‘cause she has always longed for the love and approval of her family – so everything she has ever done and every decision she has ever taken except the one that mattered, has for their approval and for the benefit of the family.
The only independent decision she has ever taken was to marry the only man she ever loved – a man who is as different and as blue collar to her wealthy family as can be – but did that mean she did everything in her power to love and support her husband like he did throughout their marriage? That would be a BIG FAT NOPE!
Theo, on the other hand, fell in love with a woman – he didn’t see their differences, he didn’t even register the problems they could face; because he believed, rightly, that if they were together, they could surpass any obstacle whatsoever – but he forgot the one main ingredient – that they both have to be all in, TOGETHER! He did his best to love, support her in her every endeavor; especially when they suffered a loss that could shake the foundation of any marriage.
Imogen, to be honest, got on my nerves – she had everything a woman could ever want – a husband who adored her, supported her, who was more like a partner rather than just a husband and one who put her on a pedestal, even after all that she put him through – and what did she give him in return? She lied to him, kept secrets from him (and a pretty big one at that!); all because he wants to let go of the toxic relationship between them – she DID NOT deserve all the goodness that was Theo.
Honestly if I had known Imogen in real life, I would have bitch slapped her long before the book had even reached a half way mark.
Theo, in comparison, is a saint – he had me eating from the palm of his hand from the start – he was all in right from the start and it physically hurt me to see him treated humiliatingly by Imogen and her family.
While Imogen did grow a backbone and FINALLY understood what she had in Theo and their marriage, for me, it came a little too late in the game for me – and the fact that they got their HEA without much groveling on Imogen’s part was a little too much for me. Honestly, Theo is the only reason why I continued with the book and I gave the rating I did for the book.
