An Imperfect Wife By Grace Wen

A homesick woman finds comfort in the arms of a new friend -- her husband's boss.

Nicole Evans wanted to support her husband Josh's career, even if it meant moving away from their hometown, family, and friends. So what if he didn't ask for her input before accepting the job? They needed the money, and the opportunity was too good to pass up. Standing by him was the right thing to do.

But Josh's crazy schedule leaves her lonely and taken for granted. With no friends or job to fill the long hours, she turns to Adam Cahill, Josh's handsome boss, for a sympathetic ear. She tells herself it's a harmless crush. Until she kisses him. And he kisses her back.

Nicole feels guilty, but she's doesn't want the affair to end. What will she do when Josh discovers she's an imperfect wife?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm sure this story will hit home for a lot of women. Some parts even I, a happily married woman with three beautiful kids, could relate. No, I'm not talking about the falling in love with my husband's boss part. But once you read, you'll understand.  It doesn't involve drugs, thugs or the paranormal. No Christian Grey -thank god- type book, but it is written in the first person with Nicole telling her story. Although it is not based on someone's real life and is listed as woman's fiction, this story of all the books I've read, feels like the most real. It's about a job that takes a husband and wife to a new home and a new town. When Nicole meets her husbands boss, Adam, she immediately find an attraction to him and him to her. As the story progresses they start to struggle with lust, love, what's right and what's wrong. An Imperfect Wife is a nice novella that I really enjoyed. I would absolutely recommend it. I am interested in seeing if Ms. Wen continues on with the story.
