Alyssa Jackson is one of the lucky ones. She has a thriving business, great friends, devoted husband, adorable daughter, and a scorching hot sex life that would be the envy of any married couple. Then, one tragic loss flips her world upside down. Floundering and unsure of how to cope with their grief, Alyssa and her husband drift apart until they are living as roommates instead of a deeply connected couple. Alyssa will do anything to get the intense passion back into her life and marriage, no matter how far out of the box she has to step.

If there is one thing tattoo shop owner Derek knows, it’s that once he set his sights on his wife, he never wanted another woman. Years together haven’t begun to put a dent in his desire for her. But everything falls apart when the anguish of loss barges into their lives. Adrift in his own suffering, Derek doesn’t realize how damaged his marriage is until his wife forces him to confront their issues. Now, he’ll do whatever it takes to get their lives back on track, even if the plan seems outrageous.

I’ve got a list of necessities for reading this one, you’ll need them, it’s worth it. Just go with me here ok?

1- Tissues, buy in bulk.

2- A nearby man. Human or battery powered, whatever’s on hand.

3- A good solid chunk of uninterrupted time.

Escapades seamlessly blends together a story that is both heartbreaking and healing with off the charts heat. Alyssa and Derek both left me full on ugly crying more than once. The pain they were both in is absolutely heart shattering, but their love runs deeper than any couple I’ve ever read. Through out it all that love never once wavered from either of them. This is truly a story about healing as much as it is a romance.

All of that emotion beauty is paired with some serious heat with these two, that’s where necessity number 2 comes into play. The chemistry between them is insanely hot, and the deep love they have with it makes for some seriously steamy pages. I don’t think I’ve ever said this, but this is one epically hot ugly cry. You do not want to miss this one.

AC Squared Book Blog – “As a whole I loved how different this book was. It wasn’t perfect, it wasn’t always happy, and it was just so real! We need more of this!”
