Is eight weeks enough time to earn back the love of someone you've betrayed...the only one you've ever loved?
Shelly has been in love with Cal since they started dating in eleventh grade. Despite everyone saying that the odds were against them, they got married after graduation and built a life together. Now, six years later, she is faced with the ultimate betrayal. Devastated, her first instinct is to call it quits…
After a drunken binge at his best friends’ bachelor party, Cal betrays the one person who has always been there for him, his wife, Shelly. Terrified and realizing she might divorce him, Cal must come up with a way to prove to her that his love is true…
Cal asks Shelly for eight weeks. Eight weeks to convince her that their marriage is worth the fight. Will Shelly be able to trust him again, or will their marriage end the way many others do when faced with opposition… In divorce?Review
There is something to be said for a book that sucks you in and makes the characters you read about like family, and this is that type of book. We meet Cal on the worst day of his life, he wakes up naked, hungover, and with a naked blonde coming out of his bathroom in Vegas. He has to decide now do I keep it to myself or tell the love of my life for the last 8 years, my wife, or do I keep it to myself.
Cal decides he has to tell his wife, but could not have picked a worse time to reveal what happened. Their 6th wedding anniversary dinner that she has spent time cooking and preparing for while he was away.
Shelly, as expected is devastated and leaves the home to go home to her dad. They were each others firsts and lasts, or so she thought, and totally in love and happy. She decides she must ask for a divorce and move on with her life, and she eventually does do some things. Cal is not one to let it go quite that easy and asks for 8 weeks to show her he is worth giving another chance to.
You will see what happens when he puts her above all else and shows her why she fell in love with him in the first place. There are still ups and downs, but Cal is ever the optimistic guy that believes he will get his 2nd chance after the 8 weeks are over.
This book to me was just about as true to live as a book could get and I could so relate to everything in this book and cannot wait to read the next one, because, as I stated they are like family to me and I need to find out what is going to happen with Sasha and TJ.
