Jonathan Caine is a true master of the universe - a currency wizard with a trophy wife, a penthouse condo with a view of the Statue of Liberty, and the desire for more - when his world comes crashing down, spiraling him into a relentless fall from grace. Devastated, Jonathan returns to his hometown to care for his ailing father and attend his 25th high school reunion, where he becomes reacquainted with former prom queen Jacqueline Williams. Back in the day, Jackie didn't even know Jonathan existed.

This was a fair story and the reader was fine but I had to listen to his inhales of breath and swallowing through the whole book which drove me nuts. Surely there was a way to edit those sounds! The story has been told a million times and I was waiting for a twist but alas, it never came.
