I'm going to start off by saying that T.J. & Cassie frustrated the heck out of me. I wanted to punch T.J. in the throat throughout the entire story. His decisions were not completely reasonable. I don't like it when a character decides to act in what they feel is the best interest of someone else without consulting them in any way. T.J. destroyed his marriage over something that they could have worked through together. His lack of trust in his wife's ability to handle what happened showed his lack of belief in Cassie's strength as a woman. T.J. is supposed to love and respect Cassie but he doesn't trust her to be strong enough to handle some truths. His level of guilt and self inflicted punishment was a bit over the top as well. I didn't mind that Cassie wanted to keep her husband at almost any cost, but I also wanted her to have more fire and get angry at his lack of communication with her much sooner than she did.
With all that being said, I finished this read in one sitting because I couldn't stop swiping the screen. Summers writing is smooth and keeps the story flowing well. The erotic detail is good and there is even a bit of a twist that I didn't really see coming that was able to surprise me. Summers was able to get me invested enough in the characters that I immediately went and bought book one so that I can read Leo and Shay's story. I am also looking forward to reading what Summers has in store for Brute in a later book.
**I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.**

He’ll do anything to protect her. Even if it means letting her go.
Tate Jackson made a big mistake. No, a monumental one. He picked the wrong place to introduce his wife, Cassie, to the alluring lifestyle they’d fantasized about.
Instinct told him to get her out of the poor excuse for a sex club—but he didn’t. And she was assaulted because of his carelessness. He’ll do anything to protect her from another traumatic experience, even if it means making the agonizing choice to convince his wife he no longer loves her. Cassie’s not buying it. In fact, Tate is the last person she blames for that horrific night.
She’s willing to give him the space he thinks he needs to get his head straight, but when divorce papers arrive, she realizes she’s out of time. She has twenty-eight days to figure out why Tate is ruining a perfect marriage. Twenty-eight days to figure out what he’s hiding. But when she learns the truth, she has to decide if her heart can take the strain of piecing their love back together.
Warning: Dirty tactics, dirtier sex, ropes, masks, guilty consciences, and love stretched so far, no one escapes unchanged. Not even you, dear reader.
