Review of Sharing You

10 Jul 2014

Synopsis

Twenty-three year old, Kamryn Cunningham has left all she’s ever known and moved to a small town where no one knows her name, who her parents are, or her social status in the horseracing world. Months after opening her own bakery and evading attempts of being set up by her new best friend, she meets Brody. Kamryn fights the instant pull between them because there’s a detail she can’t dismiss. Brody’s married.

To say that twenty-six year old, Brody Saco has had a rough marriage would be an understatement. After marrying his pregnant girlfriend, he spends the next six years in a relationship filled with hatred, manipulation and guilt involving a tragedy that happened five years earlier. When he keeps running into his sister-in-law’s best friend, Kamryn, he can’t ignore that she makes him feel more with just one look than his wife ever has; and soon he can’t continue fight his feelings for her.

When staying apart proves to be too difficult, Brody and Kamryn enter a relationship full of stolen moments and nights that end too soon while they wait for Brody to file for divorce. But the guilt that comes with their relationship may prove to be too much for Kamryn, and Brody might not be strong enough to face the tragedy from his past in order to leave his conniving wife.

Review

I am a huge and unashamed fan of Molly McAdams. She writes fantastic novels that get you emotionally invested and does one heck of a great love triangle. Sharing You is a very typical Molly book as she has a pretty specific way of writing. Unfortunately this isn’t my favourite Molly McAdams novel and is my least favourite of hers so far. Don’t get me wrong, Sharing You is still a very good book; it just doesn’t tick all of the boxes for me like her past ones have.

If you have read Capturing Peace (not a requirement before reading Sharing You, but does give good background) then you have already met Brody and know his sad story; Sharing You starts off several years after the tragic event that occurs to Brody in Capturing Peace.
Brody is stuck in a loveless marriage out of guilt and a sense of obligation. One of the things I loved about Sharing You is that as it is dual POV we get extra depth as we get to hear what the “hero” thinks instead of just the “heroine”. Kamryn has run from a highly controlling family to a new town where her life can be what she wants it to be. I loved Kamryn as she was a mentally strong character and the type to take control of her own destiny rather than let other people boss her around.

The romance in this book was great (as expected as that is what Molly excels in) and the characters had a great connection.  It was a bit insta-love but you can forgive that because of the incredible chemistry.
I think it is kind of obvious from the title, cover and synopsis alone that this book features cheating. Now I don’t have problems with cheating in books as it is something that happens (and often) in the real world but I know some people do. It is handled really sensitively in this book with the characters just being in a rather sticky situation; it is done in such a way that it is very hard to judge the characters by their actions.

My only issue with this book was believability when it came to Brody and his wife. The things that she and her family do just boggled my mind as it all seemed a little ridiculous. It all made sense at first but then when everything was revealed, it felt like the reasoning behind it just went down the drain.
Overall, this is another great book by a fabulous author. If you like emotional romance novels and don’t mind cheating as an aspect then I definitely recommend this for you.
