Maybe because I’ve been there, it’s hard for me to say she’s a cheater. Technically yes. The author did a wonderful job of portraying the absolute loneliness one feels when they are treated indifferently. The fear of being alone is sometimes crippling. There were times I cried for both her and myself. It’s erotic yes, but so much more. Beautifully erotic. The characters are so real. I want them for my friends.
