Faithful by Louise Bay
Synopsis: Leah Thompson’s life in London is everything she’s supposed to want: a successful career, the best girlfriends a bottle of sauvignon blanc can buy, and a wealthy boyfriend who has just proposed. But something doesn’t feel right. Is it simply a case of ‘be careful what you wish for’?
Uncertain about her future, Leah looks to her past, where she finds her high school crush, Daniel Armitage, online. Daniel is one of London’s most eligible bachelors. He knows what and who he wants, and he wants Leah. Leah resists Daniel’s advances as she concentrates on being the perfect fiance.
She soon finds that she should have trusted her instincts when she realizes she’s been betrayed by the men and women in her life.
Leah’s heart has been crushed. Will ever be able to trust again? And will Daniel be there when she is?
Not recommended for younger readers due to sexual content and language.
Review by Jamie:
“Faithful” was a book I was happy to read and couldn’t put it down. Leah Thompson thought she was living the good life. Great career, great friends, and a great boyfriend who just proposed. What more could a woman ask for? How about some romance?
Charlie, her boyfriend of 6 years, works a lot. Leah works a lot, and things just kinda fizzled between them. One late night while waiting for Charlie to come home from work, her curiosity strikes her and she looks up an old flame, David.
David, Mr. Macho, Mr. Sexy, Mr. Debonair, is very happy to hear from Leah, the one who got away. Now she has contacted him, and he will keep her at all cost, but she is engaged.
Who will she go for, the one she is in love with or the one she loved?
The heart and mind are two very powerful things.
I always love a book where I can feel the character’s emotions and feel their connections and thoughts. This book has all that and personality. Not just all love and lust, humor and hurt is in this too, like life.
