My opinions!!

The Lost Wife - Maggie Cox This was a difficult read only because the heartache was so well written my chest ached for Ailsa and Jake. The second chance premise was good and their daughter is adorable. I have to admit it would have been a 5star book if Jake hadn't repeatedly expressed his sexual experiences with other women since the divorce. I may have taken it better if at any point he just expressed in the 4 yrs apart he only wanted her or the women meant nothing or there weren't many. Anything to soften the blow because Ailsa hadn't been with anyone. As the reader, I could have fully appreciated both characters more if not the constant reminder he physically moved on and it didn't bother him in the least. I think it took a lot away from the love story.
