Making It Last (Camelot Series) by Ruthie Knox

Meet Amber and Tony, a wonderful couple, together for 14 years, married for ten and have three beautiful children together. They seem like the poster child for a successful marriage.  That is until Amber starts falling apart.  This is an enlightening tale of what happens after the happily ever after. Making It Last, the fourth book in the Camelot series,  tells what marriage truly is about.  That sometimes in the pursuit of that happily ever after you kind of forgotten that there was a You and I in the Us.  It isn't just the role of provider and caretaker, mom and dad that can keep it together. It simply is keeping each other in sight and knowing that you have each other, you can survive anything.  This is a really good book, full of poignant, heartbreaking scenes, one that most married and even single people will definitely respond to.  Ruthie Knox is one truly talented writer.

"You, she thought.   I choose you.  I choose this.
Again.
Again.
Always you."

I've always loved Ruthie Knox's writing, ever since I read About Last Night. She has that down to earth, this-people-exist-in-real-life, type of stories that just makes you ask for more. Making It Last is no exception. The story of Tony and Amber, a married couple, like any other married couple is struggling to raise a family together. Amber's feeling of discontent, the sense that she's losing herself in the midst of marriage is so familiar to many of us. While Tony's confusion as how to fix something unfixable but not wanting to lose what he values the most is probably what most married men feel prior to the marriage breaking up. So why do I love this book so much when it seems like when you first read it there was no way for a happy ever after to happen. That my HEA couple might end up hurting each other and *gasp* breaking up (of which I might have to boycott Ruthie Knox). I love it because its real. Ruthie Knox gave romance back to marriage by simply saying that the road to happily ever after in marriage isn't impossible, that nothing is perfect but it doesn't mean that you or marriage can't survive imperfection. It simply means that the romance is there if you see each other's truth, supporting each other, be honest and not to be afraid of showing your vulnerability to your partner and simply go forth from there. And I still love Ms. Ruthie Knox

Summary:
RITA finalist Ruthie Knox returns with a brand-new eBook original novella, the finale of her delightfully sexy Camelot series!

A hotel bar. A sexy stranger. A night of passion. There’s a part of Amber Mazzara that wants those things, wants to have a moment — just one — where life isn’t a complicated tangle of house and husband and kids and careers. Then, after a long, exhausting “vacation” with her family, her husband surprises her with a gift: a few days on the beach . . . alone.

Only she won’t be alone long, because a handsome man just bought her a drink. He’s cool, he’s confident, and he wants to take Amber to bed and keep her there for days. Lucky for them both, he’s her husband. He’s only got a few days in Jamaica to make her wildest desires come true, but if he can pull it off, there’s reason to believe that this fantasy can last a lifetime (Amazon.com)

Review Post: Fool Me Once by Catherine Bybee

Rating/Review: ☕☕☕☕ 1/2 (4.5 cups, this romantic suspense will give new meaning to The First Wives Club)
You never know what you really would be getting when reading a Catherine Bybee book.  On the outside, each book can definitely hold its own as a great contemporary romance novel.  Read a little bit further, you get well-defined, multilayered characters and a romantic suspense in the making. Pretty soon you will be amazed on the intricate storyline balanced well with the main characters developing romance.  Fool Me Once is definitely a Catherine Bybee book.  The first in her new series, First Wives,  Fool Me Once is also a spinoff from her popular Weekday Bride series.  And yet again, Ms. Bybee delivers in her great characters, well thought out plot and melding her two series together without one overpowering the other.
