Publisher's Summary

Karen has it all: a handsome husband, beautiful twin daughters, a lovely home and a great job. Karen also has a secret; she's cheating on her husband, with not one man, but two.

On the outside her life seems perfect, but on the inside Karen feels neglected, bored and unappreciated. Yearning for affection and excitement, she falls into the arms of first Raheem and then Tyrell. Out of fear of losing her husband and breaking up her family, Karen ends the affairs but things don't turn out how she planned. When Karen's dirty secrets are revealed she must fight to keep her family together.

Chris is doing all he can to hold his marriage together. He loves Karen but she grows more distant every day. When she starts coming home later and later, he suspects she is being unfaithful. When Chris accidentally takes her cell phone what he finds changes their lives forever.

When tragedy strikes, Karen must decide if she should sacrifice her happiness for her husband's love, and Chris wonders if he should stay with Karen because he still loves her despite her infidelity. But if they do stay together, will they ever find love and happiness again?

Sexy and relatable, insightful and inspiring, Love and Happiness shows us both sides of Chris and Karen's story, and reminds us that sometimes to have it all, you must first lose it all.

Realistic Love story

Is there anything you would change about this book?

My biggest pet peeve is unrealistic Romances, so I kinda enjoyed this real love story. However, it did kind of ended abruptly.

If you’ve listened to books by Ben Burgess Jr. before, how does this one compare?

I've never read this author's work before, but I will look out for more.

Which scene was your favorite?

I don't want to give too much of the story away, but I enjoyed how everything Karen was doing just came to light.

Do you think Love and Happiness needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Like I said, it did sort of end abruptly, so a follow-up would be interesting. Does Karen change her cheating ways, what about the guys she was cheating with? Etc.

the audio is flawed

will head to tracks playing over each other throughout the book. I would have liked a bit more character development other than that the story was decent the low score is because of the flaws in the audio
