|Samantha has been wife, mother, and homemaker for the last
seven years of her marriage. Somehow, along the way, she
has gotten overwhelmed and her relationship with her husband
has suffered. He cannot understand her feelings and issues
Lance thinks by issuing this ultimatum –
therapy or divorce – they would be able to get back to the
way things were. So he books a weekend at an Intimacy
Retreat in hopes that they can save their marriage. Once
there, Samantha realizes that maybe she can be a mother and
still be sexy. Maybe this retreat will not be so bad after
For Better, For Worse started out bothering me
because I was not happy with Lance’s ultimatum. However,
once they got to the retreat and were finally able to work
through their issues, I really started to enjoy it.
Michelle Cary has made this a hot story, very well written,
with plenty of sizzling sex scenes. Some funny role-playing,
some light bondage, a little voyeurism and an interesting
ménage are all featured, even in the context of “therapy”.
For Better, For Worse is a touching love story
about how falling in love is the easy part, staying in love
is sometimes a lot of work. For Better, For Worse
is definitely an enjoyable read.
