Diary of a One-Night Stand by Alexandrea Weis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Diary of a One Night Stand is a shockingly honest account of the journey through marital infidelity, starting with a steamy sex scene and immediately followed by the guilt and shame of the aftermath. The character, Kara Barton, is well-fleshed out with appropriate conflicting emotions, competing loyalties and ends up learning some painful truths about herself in the process of her indiscretion.
Kara is tired of struggling to keep her disappointing, loveless marriage together. She meets Scott, a gorgeous, powerful man who sweeps her off her feet. Despite the rumours that Scott is a womanizer, to Kara, he's loving, attentive and fiercely loyal. As she navigates the difficult process of leaving her husband and moving on in her relationship with Scott, details emerge that have Kara questioning her original assessment of Scott. The end was shocking, leaving me feeling uncomfortable and bereft. While the author ties things up, I was left with the heavy imprint of Kara's agonizing experience in my heart.
Well-written, fast-paced and absorbing, Alexandrea Weis takes you on an emotional journey from page one!
