apart, and the challenges man and wife face as they try to recover and move on with their lives.Bill Matiland is one of the highest ranking attorney s in the Florida State Attorney s Office in Jacksonville, Florida in 2005.One late night in bed next to his wife, Debbie, an UNF English professor, the couple are talking when Debbie accidentally has a slight of tongue and says to Bill, When we were married As an attorney, Bill cannot help but readinto the slip and knows in that moment everything about the life he knew as a loving husband and father for 18 years had changed The woman he loved was no longer on the same path as him, relationship wise Where did it all go wrong We soon uncover lies and truths that hurt each party involved, as they cope with the fact that their marriage may be over Bill takes the slap in the face very hard, and struggles to understand where everything went wrong Bill is a shark in the court room, impressive to all who work with him, even those who have only heard him by name however, at home he is seen differently Physically, he is short, balding, and put on too many pounds in the midsection His wife is a gorgeous blonde, often described as big breasted A feature that she uses to her advantage.The fall of their marriage is long and hard, and we watch as Debbie and Bill each take different paths to heal and grow in different ways some ways, leading to a backwards sort of growth.This story was a very easy read I flew through it at a quick pace, though it is over 500 pages I was interested in the characters and what was going to happen next to them where would they end up Would they get what they deserved It was an interesting concept to start, I mean, how would you react and change your life if faced with this new turn of events Throughout the story we got to know the characters pretty well, we saw both Debbie and Bill s side of the story I liked that it was clear the story was Bill s story It was told in first person POV When it was in Debbie s focus, the POV was always third person This definitely was telling the reader who we are supposed to sympathize, and empathize, with I also liked that throughout the entire story, Bill was a man who always aimed to do the right thing, even though doing so could cause consequences, as we see in the book We see him do this with women, Debbie, and his job.This book had a very heavy focus on psychical appearances and sex Debbie was basically a nymphomaniac, and obsessed with her own appearance and using it to her advantage For a woman who had two teenage children, I felt this was a bit contrived, but it played into her character and how situations were handled.Bill s character was doing the right thing, for example he did not show interest in other women, but this almost felt contradictory as the story was told in his POV and the immediate descriptions of any women were their chest, and rest of their body Not only did sex revolve around Debbie and Bill s relationship, it also was the main focus of many of the court cases, and at times this focus felt superficial and a bit exhausting There were a few sex scenes in this book, and many of the descriptions were blunt and a bit crude, there was no glossing over any terms or actions in a scene.One thing that stood out while reading is that each chapter began with a recap of everything that s happened so far, which really took me out of the moment.This book is an easy, quick read, and I am curious what will happen next, in Book two I think the book was most interesting when Bill s work life was highly involved as the external pressures added to the pressure already in his personal life.I would not recommend this book to a book club group, but I do believe many men would enjoy this, and women with an open outlook I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own and I did not receive any further compensation Daniel Quentin Steele is a writer He knows how to develop characters, spin a yarn, and tell a tale WWWM has depth, emotion and appeal It makes you at times angry, sad, frustrated and to be sure, engaged His characters come to life on each page, some you wish you could get to know, others you want to smack upside the head I will not give anything away in this story or the others that follow If you enjoy great writing, interesting characters and a great plot, I highly recommend this book If Daniel Quentin Steele is a writer He knows how to develop characters, spin a yarn, and tell a tale WWWM has depth, emotion and

will not give anything away in this story or the others that follow If you enjoy great writing, interesting characters and a great plot, I highly recommend this book If you do not like becoming engaged with the characters in a book, or wondering what is going to happen on the next page, then find something else to read Otherwise, find a comfortable chair, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and let the reading begin I bought When We Were Married for my Kindle a long time ago, and it s taken until now for it to reach the top of my book pile.It s a difficult book to review It s a good story, a

taken until now for it to reach the top of my book pile.It s a difficult book to review It s a good story, a court room drama from an author who clearly knows the background of Florida court procedures, about Bill Maitland an assistant prosecuting lawyer , the collapse of his marriage, and how they intertwine It s not giving away much of the plot to say that the lawyer extrapolates that his marriage is dead and his wife is cheating on him simply because she once refers to their marriage in the past tense hence the title To me, that seems a slip of the tongue, but in When We Were Married it turns out to be the kiss of death What follows transforms of the lives of both Bill and his wife Debbie, both at home and at work.The most controversial part of this novel will be its sex scenes there are quite a few I think I prefer my sex scenes to be a littletender, a little less physical, and I can see why some reviewers felt that this book would bepopular with men than women I m not sure that s right, by the way, but it s not reading material for your local church s book group It s pretty graphic in places and there s not a lot of romantic love in here Personally I wasn t offended at all, but some might be.One concern about When We Were Married I had was about its values The message sent out strongly in this novel is that men and women have a duty to look after themselves physically so that they remain sexually attractive to their partners, and I felt uncomfortable with that Throughout, we are reminded that it s the main cause of Bill s and Debbie s marriage breakup The only plus point is that least it was the man who was being criticised, not the woman.For all that, I enjoyed When We Were Married , and I read it very quickly, too It s well written there s a clever little literary trick at the start of each chapter , well researched, and those slight reservations didn t put me off at all The guy can certainly write well One last warning is this a spoiler It turns out that When We Were Married is only the first in a series of four, I think This book is one of the keepers, I read this continuously over 2 days, reading late into the night, and if I have any complaints it is I have to wait for the next 3 books to come out to find out what happens to the characters Like other books in the genre, it has the sex, the action and some larger then life characters and situations, but that only makes it evena fun read Unlike other books I have read in this genre, it is not surface level fluff, there is a lot of depth to the character This book is one of the keepers, I read this continuously over 2 days, reading late into the night, and if I have any complaints it is I have to wait for the next 3 books to come out to find out what happens to the characters Like other books in the genre, it has the sex, the action and some larger then life characters and situations, but that only makes it evena fun read Unlike other books I have read in this genre, it is not surface level fluff, there is a lot of depth to the characters and as the book unfolds the author takes you deep inside them, and what you might have once thought about them changes and shifts, especially the character of the wife, Debbie.This is no ordinary marriage falls apart, couple puts their lives back together story, there are wheels within wheels and for me was emotionally gripping and haunting I went from reading a story to feeling what the characters are feeling and found myself at times looking at my own life and connecting with what the characters are experiencing, which is the sign of a good book.The writing is excellent, the dialog flows with the movement of the story,just as powerful as it needs to be, and along with the descriptions of the characters propels the story forward nicely without piling it on , which in my experience is often a prevalent characteristic of books in this genre Really a great read and I m looking forward to picking up the sequel.
