After her husband of 15 years comes out of the closet, a blindsided, 40-year-old Amanda Lewis is forced to salvage what remains of her shattered heart and navigate a new life for herself and her teenage daughter. But will a sizzling secret romance with a famous young NFL quarterback lead her to winning the life she deserves or set her up for her biggest loss yet?
As she embarks on the journey of rebuilding her home, Amanda discovers that finding forgiveness and repairing her damaged self-worth are her biggest challenges of all. While searching her soul - and even searching inside her city's history - she finds answers. But will answers come too late and can a broken heart ever be truly fixed?
The narrator at times sounded half asleep and at other times was sickeningly sweet. The story is so ridiculous and unbelievable.

Any additional comments?
I ended up purchasing this book in audio and e-reader formats because I found the time spent driving and having to wait until I could get back to reading it was killing me.
Amanda and Bradley's story hooked me right way, Amanda was so relatable. You were easily able ride along with her on this emotional journey. The encounters between Amanda and Bradley were so beautifully sweet and sensually intimate.
Having previously lived in the Pittsburgh area , the references and descriptions of the city was very nostalgic for me.
I can't wait to see what Ms. Jones has next, her storytelling ability has me anxious for her next book and the journey it will take me on.
