  • Review: The Affair

    The Affair by J. L. Berg is a standalone contemporary romance all about second chances with new loves and rebuilding your life after great loss. Told from Elle's POV, we join her in the middle of her story. With the loss of her father, her divorce, and the changes in her mother, her life has been turned on it's head over the past year. The antique store her family owns is the one constant, but when her ex brother-in-law shows up looking for work, determined to be involved in the store, she ends up going against the safe choice and saying yes. Sawyer is confident without being pushy, his personality soothes the rough and sharp edges Elle has had since her father's death and her divorce, and despite trying not to, she really likes him. When her life starts to resemble the secret life she finds secreted away in her grandmother's journals she starts to question everything. This story was emotional, a little sad, a whole load of angsty, but so sweet and uplifting in the end. The healing that takes place between Elle and the various characters is a powerful journey that I was glad to be a part of. Enjoy!

  • Beautiful, emotional

    This is one of the most beautiful, emotional books I’ve read in a long while. The Affair captivated me from the first page and kept me enthralled until the very end. ’But life changes. Priorities change. People change.’ Elle’s life has had a lot of changes in it lately. Changes she’s not in control of. And Elle doesn’t do change well. At all. But when her ex’s brother shows up with a proposition, she starts down a path she never expected to take. ’And I dreamed of love - the messy kind that sent you down long, forbidden pathways.’ Oh man, my heart hurt so much for Elle. She’s been put through the wringer in so many ways and is struggling in every aspect of her life. Written, entirely in her point of view, I was totally submerged in her emotional chaos. And when she found happiness, I was rejoicing right along with her. Usually, having just the heroine’s point of view can make it difficult to connect with the hero, but not so with Sawyer. Ms. Berg has written this in such a way that I could sense what was going on with him. He has a few secrets, but I never felt the loss of his “voice”. I loved how sweet and cute he was. His humor helped to bring Elle out of some the darkness she had been living in and I loved he did that so effortlessly. ’”What are we doing here, Sawyer?” I breathed out, hoping he’d understand my meaning. “Dancing around something we’re both too afraid to act on,” he spoke low, and his voice was filled with an intesity that sent sparks up my spine. “I’m not a very good dancer,” I finally said, meeting his gaze. I felt his hand tighten around my waist, and his head bent dangerously close to my own. “Me either, but I’m willing to take a chance on the right partner.”’ While this is definitely romance at it’s finest, it’s so much more. This is the story of a woman who is lost and floundering, questioning her past, her actions in the here and now, and afraid to really face the future. The answers for her do not arrive in a well placed word spoken from a friend, but from various avenues which added to the believability of her struggles. I found even the title of this book to be amazing as layer upon layer is peeled back. The writing is so fresh and original, the plot so beautifully interwoven with the past through the present, that I hated to see it end. And just an FYI for anyone who is concerned about cheating, while there is cheating - it was all done in the past and none of it by the hero or heroine. If you’re looking for an emotion laden read that brims with the sweetest, as well as sexy, of romances, I can’t recommend this book enough. ’And it all started with a leather journal.’

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • fantastic, beautiful love story

    This is The Affair I will forever remember. My heart is full. My emotions have been challenged and I loved every minute of it. I have found true bliss after a journey through tragedy, lies, secrets and a true love. The Affair took me on a journey of a lifetime. An affair and her father's death crushed Elle. Her mom leaving and moving in with her brother took her purpose. She was alone in a small town where everyone knows your business. She was missing her other half, the puzzle piece the would make her whole. Sawyer knew Elle needed help running the shop. Sawyer knew it was time to find his real family. He needed to reach out and grab the life he wanted. It wouldn't be easy. It wouldn't be fast. Truths will be exposed changing everything. Sawyer and Elle are two pieces of a puzzle, two halves of a whole. Together they are perfect. Together they make the most fantastic love story, The Affair.

    Thanks for your feedback!
