Publisher's Summary

When Gabby first met Elliott she knew he was the man for her. In twenty years of marriage she has never doubted her love for him, but Gabby feels that time and her youth are slipping away. For the first time in her life she is restless. And then she meets the youthful Matt… And in one reckless moment she destroys all that she holds dear. Are some betrayals too great to forgive?

Let down

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I've read and re-read all Jane Green's books, but this one, my first Jane Green listen, I hated and could not get further than the first couple of hours in.

Has Tempting Fate put you off other books in this genre?

I'm not put off by other books in this genre, but will not listen to anything Jane Green reads again.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Jane Greens narration was slow, laborious and boring. I could not listen, it was terrible. Sorry Jane, but stick to writing and pay a pro to do the narrating.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

None other than dying to switch it off.

Not your finest Jane Green!

I'm a huge jane green fan, but I have to admit this wasn't one of my favourites, sorry! The story was ok, but the audio for me, ruined it. It's lovely to have the author read their own books but on this occasion it didn't work!

Predictable story, painful narration

I have read and enjoyed other books bys Jane Green, but I couldn’t believe this was the same author! The main character is unbelievably self righteous and sees herself as the victim of what she does, not her poor family. It’s all about her. And as for the narration, I’m sorry Jane but it was all wrong - the accents were weak and inconsistent, the emphasis was so wrong at times and you even changed the pronunciation of one of the main characters part way through! (Alannah) I finished the book because it’s two weeks till my next credit comes through, that’s the only reason.

Good read

Enjoyable lighthearted read, a little predictable but that's ok to make it a rounded story that you want to end in this way.

You could see it happening.

In listening to this audiobook, I felt with every turn and twist, you could easily predict what was happening next. I’ve read many Jane Green books and this would be the most disappointing.

Thank you Jane Green. Just beautiful!
Ups and downs in the story. You cannot guess what will happen. Loved it all.
