One day a week—Thursdays—my husband and I could do whatever or whomever we pleased.

Protection was non-negotiable.

And no matter what, we had to be home by midnight.

Jack was the one who wanted an open marriage, but we were supposed to keep things simple. No strings. No commitments. It seemed so easy…until it wasn’t.

Devilishly handsome Cole Blackwater was only supposed to be a fling, but everything about him made me feel alive. Wanted. Seen. When I realized he was my husband’s boss, I should have broken things off right then…but I didn’t.

One day a week, I could pretend that I was his and he was mine…until Cole wanted more.

But how could I decide between the man I’d promised to love, honor, and cherish, and the man who tempted me to break every single vow I’d made?

Review 2

5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review

So, when I read the blurb for this book I really wasn’t sure about it. I’m totally against cheating stories. Even ones where the marriage is open and every person involved is consenting. I just don’t like them…but something about this story, made me want to read it. I wanted to find out more about this story.

Now I will say, I can see where this story would be hard for some. Even with the knowledge that the open marriage was agreed upon. I must admit, it took me a few chapters to be okay with what was going on, but I have to admit, I feel in love with Corinne and Cole. My heart even hurt for Jack and what he was really missing out on. I loved how hard Corinne tried to say “faithful”. I love how hard she fought. I loved when she finally found the courage to say enough. I loved watching Cole fall. But I think most of all, I love how he was truly a romantic from the start. He just needed to find the right person to share that with.

Given the story and the subject matter, Candace Knoebel did an amazing job with this story. I could not put it down. I happy that everyone got their HEA in the end. I hope this is more to come for everyone in this story. Please check it out.
