Publisher's Summary

On the northeast side of town, there is a house.

The house was once magical, filled with love and joy and plans for the future. Inside its walls are many things that belong to me - my books, the china from my mother on my wedding day, the beautiful cage once home to two birds, now empty, just like me.

And a man. A man who also belongs to me. A man I no longer wish to keep. A man who, no doubt, has not slept, though the sun is rising. Because the house where he waits is where I laid my head to rest every night for eight years. Until last night.

No one who knows me would believe Charlie Pierce, the quiet, bookish girl who never made waves, is pulling out of the driveway of a man who isn’t her husband. But they don’t know me at all. I don’t even know me. Not anymore.

They say there are two sides to every story, and I suppose in most cases, that’s true. But the one I live inside of? It has three. 

On the northeast side of town, there is a house. But there is no longer a home.

EPIC.. EMOTIONALLY RAW AND BROKENLY EPIC

Originally, I was not going to start this Duet because I dislike broken vows and cheating relationships.. however, over and over again this book would subtly make its presence known to me as I trawled Audible hoping to find my next listen.. so eventually I caved and bought it. And, oh.. my.. God am I ever glad I did, because this book was so very everything.. and, as I laid awake promising myself just one more chapter over and over again, I finally realized (at the dawning of a new day) that I had been talking utter poop to myself all night long.

I had been absolutely transfixed as I witnessed how a wife struggled to hold on to the empty husk of her marriage which was slowly crumbling because only one of them had been trying. I was utterly hooked as an old love resurfaced, lit a new fire in the shell of the girl he had once walked away from and breathed hope into whispered words of second-chances. I too fell in love with the caring, kind, thoughtful man who had grown from the teen she once knew and only he saw how emotionally empty and exhausted she was. Then this very talented author completely knocked me off course as she cleverly stirred the pot by finally giving me the husband*s POV and, at this point, nothing could have torn me away from the heartbreaking chapters as the dam holding back years of grief, loss, hurt, anger, devastation, heartache, regret, hope and helplessness finally burst with its heavy load. There were pain-filled words.. and pleas.. and promises.. and a tentative treaty was struck as a Phoenix rose from the ashes, spread his wings and prepared for war.

Worth a credit? Oh boy YES spectacular storytelling.. a gripping and emotionally charged plot as uncharted chapters concealed and slowly revealed their hidden gems.. and a cliffhanger ending that promises much more heartfelt anguish to come. Erin, Jason and Sebastian WERE the three characters they each played.. with their tender vulnerabilities, their torn emotions, their deep sorrow, their tentative hopes and their heart*s hurdles coming through clearly.

A Love Triangle with all the Feels

This was my first time reading Author Kandi Steiner and I’ve heard so much positive feedback about her work. Now I know why!!
This book was fantastic. Emotional, relatable, angst filled.
All the feels I look for in a romance.
Charleigh and Cameron have been together for over a decade and their marriage has been through more than any couple should have to endure so when a blast from the past steps into their lives reminding Charleigh what it feels like to be alive again, she can’t resist Reece and all his charm.
This is part one in a Duet so it ends in a cliffhanger but book 2 is already out and it’s so worth the read.
I listened to this on audio and highly enjoyed the narrators, Erin Mallon and Jason Clarke. Sebastian York even makes an appearance giving this story the added element of multiple point of views.
Highly recommend!!
