Tempting Fate Book Review

I have a good book that I want to share with all of you called Tempting Fate written by Jane Green.
From Jane Green, the New York Times bestselling author of such beloved novels as Jemima J, The Beach House, Another Piece of My Heart, comes an enthralling and emotional story about how much we really understand the temptations that can threaten even the most idyllic of relationships….

Gabby and Elliott have been happily married for eighteen years. They have two teenaged daughters. They have built a life together. Forty-three year old Gabby is the last person to have an affair. She can’t relate to the way her friends desperately try to cling to the beauty and allure of their younger years… 
And yet, she too knows her youth is quickly slipping away. She could never imagine how good it would feel to have a handsome younger man show interest in her—until the night it happens. Matt makes Gabby feel sparkling, fascinating, alive—something she hasn't felt in years.  
What begins as a long-distance friendship soon develops into an emotional affair as Gabby discovers her limits and boundaries are not where she expects them to be. Intoxicated, Gabby has no choice but to step ever deeper into the allure of attraction and attention, never foreseeing the life-changing consequences that lie ahead. If she makes one wrong move she could lose everything—and find out what really matters most.  
A heartfelt and complex story, Tempting Fate will have readers gripped until they reach the very last page, and thinking about the characters long after they put the book down.
Some times, it may seem like you want to shake things up but when you really do, it's the last thing you wanted! I know from experience that when something isn't quite right, it's really not the time to take drastic steps. Instead you need to sit back and really think of the consequences and if you really want those or is this a fleeting feeling that will go away.
I was surprised at how the story progressed and how they both went their separate ways but still something kept pulling them back to each other. Of course, there were complications because of what Gabby did, and I have to admit, I don't know if I was in her husband's shoes, if I could have forgiven her, but that was his cross to bear.
Sometimes, though, in tempting fate, you find the thing that you most cherish and it's not left you like you thought it had. Gabby got really lucky that in tempting fate, she didn't destroy the very foundation that she had spent 18 years making with Elliott. It's a good lesson to learn but an even better one to heed. Think long and hard before you throw a lifetime of memories out the window just because something exciting comes along that you know probably won't last.
You will love this book as it keeps you on the edge all the way to the end! Cuddle up on a rainy day and drink some tea or coffee and dig in. You won't regret it!
Happy Reading!
