Reading Challenge: Book #4 Review

If you haven't been following along, I've been participating in the Pop Sugar 2015 Reading Challenge & just finished book #4. The category was: A book from an author you love but haven't read yet.  Well, I might be revealing a bit too much about my shallowness self but I just love chick lit books & I LOVE Jane Green. Yes, sometimes I just want to get lost in a book that isn't super heavy, that doesn't have a ton of symbolism, that most likely won't teach me anything, that is just a quick, FUN read. And thank you Jane Green for being all of those things. Judge me if you must. After my last book, I REALLY wanted something light & Jane Green's latest book, Tempting Fate, was a winner! I absolutely loved it & even got my sister hooked on it! This was one of those books I could NOT put down & therefor finished it pretty quickly. As per usual, I'm stealing the summary from goodreads.  I highly recommend you read this book!
Gabby & Elliott have been happily married for eighteen years. They have two teenaged daughters. They have built a life together. Forty-three year old Gabby is the last person to have an affair. She can’t relate to the way her friends desperately try to cling to the beauty and allure of their younger years…And yet, she too knows her youth is quickly slipping away. She could never imagine how good it would feel to have a handsome younger man show interest in her—until the night it happens. Matt makes Gabby feel sparkling, fascinating, alive—something she hasn't felt in years. What begins as a long-distance friendship soon develops into an emotional affair as Gabby discovers her limits and boundaries are not where she expects them to be. Intoxicated, Gabby has no choice but to step ever deeper into the allure of attraction and attention, never foreseeing the life-changing consequences that lie ahead. If she makes one wrong move she could lose everything—and find out what really matters most.

A heartfelt and complex story, Tempting Fate will have readers gripped until they reach the very last page, and thinking about the characters long after they put the book down.
Have you read this book? Would love to know your thoughts!!
