Review: Break Even by Lisa DeJong

Break Even Lisa DeJong

Synopsis: 

My story isn’t a love story … not the typical kind anyway.
As a lawyer, I’m used to discovery, but I never saw this one coming.

Every day, River gives me ten reasons to stay away, and then eleven reasons why I can’t. Our relationship was to remain strictly business, or at least I tried.

Four years of marriage, and everything with Cole has changed. I never knew two people who lived together could be so distant. But I’m not ready to give up on him.

One man wants to break me.
The other is just trying to get even.

Both are lying to me.

My Review:

Break Even intrigued me from the minute I read the synopsis. I like that this author didn’t shy away from writing a book that included cheating in the plot line. I really marvel in the fact, that there was a marriage involved. It absolutely made for a great read. To me there shouldn’t have to be morality in a fictional book. I have noticed many reviews where readers slam an author because of cheating plots. This is just my opinion but I like it when characters have some real life flaws and are not morally right all the time because honestly, that’s just not the world we live in. We are not all morally correct. This book shreds light on sticky situations where love is found and as with any human mistakes are made.

I found myself yelling at Marley and also for her (really just yelling at my kindle). In any relationship, when you notice things are changing you have to examine what’s going on without ignoring it and do more than wish things to be better. That was Marley’s big character flaw. There was a little shocker that caught me off guard and I loved it! I like a book with a GRADE A Assh*le in it! The only thing I didn’t like about this book was I wanted to know more about River Holtz’s background. Great Book… well-played Mrs. De Jong!

4-star
