Description: Jodi thought she had it all: a successful husband, a beautiful house, and a job teaching kindergartener’s how to color in the lines. But when Jodi’s fate is twisted by a terrible car accident and she wakes up married to the girl next door she starts to wonder if she really did have it all.

Will Jodi be able to put her past behind her and be able to fall into bed and her new life with Christine? Or will she wake up from her dream to find herself longing for something she’s never before possessed?

Review: I expected more.

Amazon tells me this book has 212 pages. Somehow it felt more. I don’t know.

The first 20% are about Jodi’s life before the accident. It wasn’t really interesting and I didn’T get why she suddenly had sexual tension with every fucking person? It was like she was suddenly in heat.

This trend continues in some kind after her accident. Her lust concentrates on one person, but there was so much sex. So, so much sex. I think, maybe half of this book is sex. Now don’t get me wrong, I like (well written) sex scenes in books. BUT I like them with plot. And not sex after sex after sex.

There were good parts, though. I enjoyed her interactions with ‘the girl next door’ and I liked how her job had a part in this story as well.

Somehow it was too much and not enough at the same time. Less sex and more in detail development would have been nice. There is a lot happening in those 212 pages (really only 212?), but it felt very rushed at parts and the ending plain sucked. It was very anti-climatic.
