The Devil's Playground - (Faraway Book 1) - Eliza Freed

The Devil's Playground (Faraway #1)
Former U.S. Attorney, Meredith Walsh, took some time off to raise her children. But the time took away everything she once trusted about herself. She’s lost within the mundane confines of her children's schedules of lacrosse, soccer, Cub Scouts, and math facts. Desperate for a sliver of her former passion, and isolated in the small town her corporate husband relocated her to, she counsels herself on risking her family for the rush of a fling.

But Vincent Pratt, the local chief of police, weakens Meredith’s abhorrence of affairs and her dedication to her family. With him, she finds a new version of herself, one capable of contributing in her new world, and thriving in her lonely home. In spite of the fact, she’s not the kind of woman who has an affair.
My Review
The Devils Playground is book 1 in the Faraway series..
WHY!!! How can Eliza be so cruel and leave us on that cliff-hanger ???
I need to know what happens like now!!!
WARNING!!! This book ends on a HUGE cliff-hanger.... and also has cheating in it ...
I hate cheating, I hated the heroine and I hate cliff-hangers ... so I went into this book a bit unsure what I was going to feel about it... and even now that I've read it I'm still not sure if I love it or hate it ... ok maybe I do love it :)
T.D.P is Meredith's story, she was a very successful business woman. Until her husband decided he wanted to have he stay and home and become a housewife and mother..   Now her life revolves around looking after the kids and her husband... but she is also board out of her mind.
Her husband is always working and never spends anytime with her or the kids.. basically he wants a trophy wife and children.
She ends up meeting the gorgeous town sheriff/policeman Vince on a school trip.. they are instantly attracted to each other and have sexual chemistry off the charts .. but he is also married and has his own kids.
They try to fight the feelings but eventually give in to their desires... and oh god its HOT between them .... they say it will only be a sex kind of fling but feelings start to develop and lines get crossed .... we all know that any affair can only end badly..
T.D.P has you on the edge of your seat and I just couldn't put it down because you need to know what's going to happen next, I sat up til 4am reading until I finished :)
Loads of suspense, a great plot, steamy sex scenes... But darn that cliffy!!!
Really great read, I thoroughly enjoyed it and cant wait for book 2 to see where it leads and what happens next.... xoxo faye
