But I Said Forever by Jennifer Gilby Roberts

What They Say:

Expect little, forgive much?

After a whirlwind courtship, Brittany Beresford married her Prince Charming and looked forward to living happily ever after. Five years later, she’s been reduced to a not-quite-desperate housewife, with a husband who spends more time flossing his teeth than holding meaningful conversations with her.

She braves his disapproval and turns working mother and, other than feeling far more drawn to a handsome baker she works with than him, things seem to be looking up. But then Brittany discovers that her husband’s “hobbies” include something even worse than golf - and he expects her to put up and shut up.

Fairy tale illusions shattered, but still believing marriage is for life and wanting the best for her son, Brittany has a choice to make: should she follow her heart, or her conscience?

What I Say:

I would like to say thank you for to author Jennifer Gilby Roberts for allowing to read this as part of her beta readers team.  I am privaliged to give a fair and honest review.

Brittany married Phillip after a whirlwind romance, now she is left wondering what to do with her life.  Phillip has little time for her since his career has taken off.  Philip wants Brittany to be the prefect stay at home wife, who does as he says when he says and doesn't ask questions.  She loves her husband or she thinks she does, and loves her little boy but she needs more, she manages to get a job in a bakery, it's a start and helps to build her confidence.  

I really liked Brittney and all the characters.  Lauren made me laugh so much.  I would like to have seen more of Zac and Brittney together.  Phillip I really hated from the start and wanted her to walk out on him and his control freak ways.  Zac is a mean and moody sort but with a heart of gold underneath, he has just been hurt very badly.

I really enjoyed this story and it doesnt take long to get into.  I found it a nice easy read and had me laughing out loud.
