    Made me Think

    HEARTLESS by R.C. Martin Infidelity…is it always wrong? And, if it is not…when is it right? What are the repercussions of infidelity and how is the fallout dealt with? Is acting on interest in another ever okay when married? These are some of the questions I asked myself while reading. The author states in the blurb that this is a book that has real characters who are not perfect and that is abundantly clear…this is a story that will linger and cause readers to ponder…at least that is my opinion. Blaine and Michael really seem to have nothing in common but definitely are attracted to one another. Both are in relationships when they meet but that doesn’t stop them from beginning an affair. A secret liaison that begins as lust but develops into more – and this is one reason I believe taking that first step into the forbidden might be “wrong” if your commitment to marriage vows is to be honored – this couple took that step and then had to deal with the repercussions. Michael’s choice impacted his wife, family and political career. Blaine’s choice impacted others but not quite so much as Michael’s choice did. I am conflicted. In some ways I don’t understand why the two did what they did since they seemed so very different and incompatible. In other ways I totally understand. I am happy the couple brought out the best in one another and eventually found a happy life together. I understand how those around them must have felt. I felt for all of the characters. I cared. I wanted to intervene. I wondered if Michael’s infidelity would be a one-time thing. That said...this book must be a good one to evoke so many thoughts and feelings. I am not fond of first person dual view books but in this story it provided context and background information that was important. The ending had me scratching my head but thankfully it all came out right in the end. Thank you to the author who gifted me a copy of this intriguing book through NetGalley – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

    I highly recommend this forbidden romance!

    I am at a total loss of what to write. I read the book cover to cover and I immediately wanted to read it again. I absolutely loved it. I loved the characters flaws and all. The writing was impeccable. I was held captive chapter to chapter. Wanting more. Craving more. Yes, this is a forbidden romance between Michael a married 37-year-old Governor and Blaine a 24-year-old college educated bartender, who is also in a relationship. that works at an upscale bar and restaurant where they met. This is not a torrid tale of just wanting an affair for sexual gratification, its about meeting someone and finding an instant connection. Michael had been with Veronica for 20 years, married for 15 of them and never once strayed. Never had the urge or need to. The journey I took watching this love affair unfold tore at my emotions. My heart ached for them and for Michael’s wife Veronica. Families torn apart, living in secret, stolen moments and periods of silence. I felt all the emotions! Beautifully written. I know there are people that don’t read books that have spouses cheating and I respect that, but this book brings you right along with the characters as they go through so much conflict, turmoil, grief over a loss of a relationship, regret, and I also felt a love that was so profound and deep. I felt the connection that was soul deep, it was a once in a lifetime love. I laughed, I cried, yes, sobbing at the loss that they were going through. I don’t want to give away anything because you need to read this beautiful book for yourself. It is told in dual POV, so you are in the characters heads, which I loved. I want to leave you with a portion of the Author’s Note at the end of the book, “By nature, forbidden love is complicated, messy, ugly and sometime wrong. Nevertheless, we all have our stories to tell, our crosses to bear, and the grace to try again, to grow and to be better people with the dawning of each new day.” Never has a truer word been spoken! I highly recommend this beautiful and heartfelt forbidden romance.
