This Side of Crazy - Kimmie Thomas (TOUR)


Synopsis:
A fast paced story about Maxine Payne and her struggle to find inner peace. Maxine’s poor self-esteem lead her to marry the first man that shows any interest in her. After five years of marriage and misery she has nothing to show for it. Her sham of a marriage is falling apart and her dream of having a child is fading away each day. To make matters worst, she discovers that the people in her life are not there to love and help her as she has always believed.
She struggles to come to terms with her failing marriage and her sick mother as she watches her chance at a happy home with children slip away. Her two childhood girlfriends offer help and support but they have their own personal struggles. The old saying, “what’s done in the dark will eventually comes to light” has never been more true.
When tragedy strikes, Maxine will have to make the most important decision of her life. But will the lies and secrets her husband and friends harbor bring Maxine’s life crashing down around her?

My Opinion:
Before finishing this book, I read someone else say they couldn't get past page 11. I'm glad I kept going, though I understand why they felt that way.
After reading the first chapter, I put the book down, looked at the hubster and said, "Whoa!" I couldn't believe how blunt the beginning is. I guess I also liked it because I picked the book back up and kept reading.
Then I found myself having a harder time putting it down. I really wanted to know what all the connections were to the story, and there were many.
At the end of the book, I'm actually eager to read the next in the series The Other Side of Crazy.
Not bad writing, though very graphic when exploring sexuality.
I recommend this book to erotica romance lovers who don't mind some swearing.


3/5

  3. The synopsis sounded interesting but I wasn't sure about it until I read your review. I might have to look for a copy.

  4. This one WAS a bit 'too' for my personal taste, although I kept pushing past that, because the story itself was really pretty good! :)
