NOTICE: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Cara Brooks, a high-flying property developer, has everything she could possibly desire – apart from passion. Tired of her rocky relationship with husband David, she’s overwhelmed upon meeting Sirena, a young, beautiful woman, one evening in a Mayfair hotel bar. Cara knows she has to make life changes, but is unsure whether she can enter into a serious relationship with a woman, particularly when she knows David’s family secret – a secret she has promised to never divulge. While battling her conflicting emotions, she lies to those she cares about most. Her desire for true happiness will bring complications into her otherwise carefree life. But does she really know what she truly wants? Can she risk everything for her own pursuit of passion?

Meanwhile, Elle Milne-Smith knows only too well that with her sultry beauty she can have anything she wants. She embraces her fulfilling family life with her second husband Makram and her two wonderful children. But she is also secretly involved with gorgeous twenty-something Lyra, who means more to her than she lets on to close friends. Makram and Lyra satisfy all her needs, but when a series of unexpected problems appear, her indulgent lifestyle is turned upside down.

Maybe it's just me. I really like M/M LGBT romance books, but every lesbian novel I try to read, I just can't get into. The beginning of this book, seen through Cara's eyes was boring and just a lot of exposition - not a lot of action. From the description above, I never even got to the character of Elle in the story after reading quite a few chapters, but I couldn't make myself read on. Perhaps you'll enjoy it - I just couldn't make myself finish or even get mid-way.
