"Boring? Tiresome? Predictable? We'll see about that."
When Trish's husband of almost 30 years announces that he's leaving her because she's "boring," she sets out to find an adventure. Her attempt to drink her heartbreak away drops her onto a handsome gentleman who invites her to have an adventure, and Trish can't help but say yes.
She embarks on that adventure, but her path keeps crossing with that of another - Clint Winstead, a Dominant at the club, Bliss, and the one person in the place who seems to despise her. And that's fine with Trish. After all, there are plenty of other Doms there who want to play.
But when an annual event at the club throws Trish and Clint together for two weeks, both of them are horrified, not by the pairing, but by the feelings they're trying hard to deny. As the time passes, it's harder and harder to deny what they know is true - that is, until one nearly-tragic incident that almost changes both their lives irreparably. And when Trish realizes that continuing on with her commitment could cost her the ultimate - her life - she knows that it has to end. But does it?
Trish is the queen of second chances. But this second chance might just come at a price too high to pay. A little adventure is a good thing, but perhaps she's gotten far more adventure than she can handle.

~ My Review 4 to 5 STARS ~~~~~~~~~~~
Trish and Clint the main characters in this book along with the secondary characters of Dave, Steffan and Sheila create a believable storyline of broken hearts, forgiveness, moving on and love. This book evolves around the club called Bliss so there is lots of very erotic scene playing but for me I loved the interwoven story of Trish and Clint.
I know several women who have been in the same position Trish was in and the author did a sound job with her presentation of this situation. I love how she built Trish’s character from the devastating moment that her husband shattered her world to the moment that she honored herself and walked away from a possible new love and a damaging situation.
Clint struggles with his past and moving forward into a relationship with Trish. As I read this story I knew that I would like Clint right away but there is a part in the book when he does something that should make me hate him and all I could think of is my heart hurts because he is so broken.
This author is gifted in the area of showing broken people with inner strength in her storyline. She shows how it is possible for even in the brokenness to be of strong character. I recommend that you read this book and move to the next of the series Unforgettable You.
I rate this book 4 Hearts for the read and 5 Hearts for the heat factor.

Review of Unforgettable You
For as long as I can remember, I've been a writer . . .
and it has served me well. I wrote for local publications, wrote marketing and advertising materials, wrote for academic publications, and eventually grew jaded with the writing profession as I often watched others take credit for my hard work. I retreated into the world of 3-D art in the fiber and textile mediums and hid out in a world of colors and textures. But, truth is, there was always a story or two in my head. It wasn't until Nikki and I met in my imagination that I decided it was time to let those stories out, and I'm glad I did. My readers now get to enjoy the fruits of my imagination and, believe me, it runs wild!
On the personal side, I've been happily married to my lover and best friend for over thirty years, and I have two wonderful adult kids who've blessed me with two excellent choices of life partners. When I'm not writing, I'm playing with my three crazy little dogs, hiking in a local recreation area, kayaking, working out at the gym, tending my herbs, cooking, or doing some kind of research.
But I'd really rather be writing!
