Our Review

“I love you today.”
“I love you every day.”
And he did.

This book had us in absolute fits! At times laughing at ourselves in the process, whilst also feeling the heart-warming  and at times heartbreaking emotion as Dean, Tash and their issues were so relatable. We defy anyone not to relate to at least one situation in this book; be it yourself or a friend, and whilst there’s a realness to Dean and Tash’s marriage issues, it was delivered with humour, warmth, emotion and above all, in a way that provided some much needed and entertaining escapism as we championed this couple from start to finish.

‘To love is to soar through emotion so raw and chaotic that when you finally set down your feet they no longer belong to you. Love captures, blinds, binds and holds you hostage.’

K.M. Golland takes everyday situations; marriage, children, work, responsibilities…you know, the normal married stuff and turns them in comedic moments, imprinting her unique whacky sweet, hilarious spin on marital issues,  that had us snorting and laughing out loud. Seriously, there’s some funny shit in this book and yet it didn’t overshadow the heart gripping emotion and reality of a couple desperately in love and trying to rekindle that spark that’s fallen by the wayside amongst the day to day of life.  Can they save their marriage or will temptation step in the way?

‘But that was marriage. Our flame still burned, just with less ferocity.’

Behind the humour is the honesty of a couple trying to do the best for their family but in the process forgetting what’s best for them. As a couple Dean and Tash were very much in love, but sadly, not very much in lust and sometimes you need that jolt, that defining moment to remind you what’s under your nose, trying to figure out how to fix it.

‘They were eyes I’d gazed into countless times during the past eighteen years, and eyes that would forever tether me to home. ‘

Natasha (Tash) and Dean Jones have been together for eighteen years, married for thirteen – both work, run a house and have two rambunctious, gorgeous little boys, Thomas and William; life is hectic for these two working parents, and they’ve become ships that pass in the night and in the process, they’ve began to neglect ‘themselves’ – sex has become a chore – a bit like doing the laundry – though Dean is doing more ‘hand washing’ these days. *wink*

Attention and affection is lacking and thanks to dual pov’s we gleam both Dean and Tash’s perspective on their marriage and how they plan on turning it around; with hilarious and candid inner monologue we might add! We’re privy to cluelessness, lack of communication and decisions made that could jeopardise their marriage and the desperation of two people wanting to hold on.

“Whisper words that steal her breath, her cognition…her soul.”

Dean and Tash were fabulous characters. So real – we all know a Dean and Tash but we have to say…we fell in love with Dean Jones! This guy isn’t a billionaire, he doesn’t sport a twelve back, he doesn’t grunt alpha style but he DOES live and breathe for his wife and children, and whilst he may not always get it right, his heart is in the right place and it was his love and dedication and somewhat misplaced cluelessness that endeared us to him. Not to mention when Dean decides to try his hand at dirty talk in the bedroom, we fell about laughing! We mean proper laugh out loud! Oh boy, too funny! We could just picture the confusion on Tash’s face haha!

‘She was my perfect.’

This is our first read by this author and whilst Commitment is the 5th book in the Temptation Series, we read it as a complete standalone, never losing our way, easily following the story. All in all this was a fabulously funny, sweet, heart-warming and honest read…errmmm maybe a little too honest in some regards! The only reason this isn’t a 5 star is because there were a couple of times the humour felt a little childish in regards to toilet humour, but…and this is a big but… it was a very small hiccup in an otherwise wonderful reading experience. This was exactly what we needed and we LOVED IT!

Synopsis

Sizzling power couple, Bryce and Alexis — from the Temptation novels — help bring sexy back to their friend’s lacklustre thirteen-year marriage.

Natasha Jones loves her life, her husband and their two young sons. She works hard both at home and as an Events Supervisor at City Towers. But when a relationship with her work colleague unexpectedly progresses, Tash begins to question whether or not her marriage has passed its ‘Use by’ date.

Dean Jones is a numbers man but has no idea that his number could be up where his marriage is concerned. Never one to really speak his mind, he has always opted to just go with the flow in order to keep his wife happy.

Passion, intimacy, and communication have taken a backseat to demanding careers, a mortgage, and family life, and it’s not until Tash and Dean stand to lose everything they have built together that the spark between them begins to flicker again.
And boy does it flicker …
and ignite …
and nearly burn the entire neighbourhood down!

Can Tash and Dean keep this newly lit flame alive and save their marriage? Or will temptation make the commitment seem too much to bear?
