Okay so as everyone knows I love Bethany Lopez! She is the bomb and I had the privilege to beta read this book and HOLY MOTHER LOVER is this s story that will stay with you for years to come.
Okay so 8 Weeks is such an emotional story that it took me a while to write this review because I was torn between trying to write a spoiler free review but at the same time giving readers a little of what is to come when Bethany releases this story. So this is what I have really it is a question all married couples should ask themselves and that is could you forgive your spouse for the ULTIMATE betrayal?
The answer for me is a resounding HELL NO but life has a crazy way of intervening and setting wrongs to right. This is the story of Shelly and Cal who are high school sweat hearts who marry right out of high school and have a happy life together. That is until Cal goes to Vegas to a bachelors party and wakes up in a room with someone else. Cal is sick to his stomach because he loves his wife and he is not sure what the hell happened in Vegas but he knows this much is true he has to be honest with his wife and tell her the truth about Vegas as soon as he gets home.
He does tell his wife Shelly the truth and she leaves him. Cal is devastated by the reality that he may lose his wife and the life he has built with her. But Cal is determined more than ever to win his wife back and show her that he is the man she loved and he would never do anything to hurt her. He comes up with a proposition and asks his wife to give him 8 weeks to show her how much he loves her and needs her in his life. Will Shelly let him back in after the 8 weeks or is the betrayal to much for her to bare?
Prepare yourself for this read because it is such a roller coaster ride that will have you laughing, crying, and screaming all at once!
