    I have such a love for domestic thrillers. You’d think I’d get tired of the husband accused of the mistress’s murder… but nope. Keep on bringing them to me! Here, Rose give us the POV of both the wife, Sarah, and her husband, Adam. They have marital problems like most have… she’s a highly respected and hard working criminal defense attorney and Adam is a published author trying to write his next great book and it just isn’t coming as well as he would hope. While Sarah is constantly working and neglecting Adam, he starts an affair with Kelly, Sarah’s polar opposite. And of course, Kelly ends up stabbed to death in Adam and Sarah’s lake house. Who murdered her? Sarah decides to take Adam’s case and try to prove her husband innocent.

    This was a fun, quick listen that kept me entertained from beginning to end. Quite frankly, I didn’t like Sarah or Adam. Sarah should NOT have taken her husband’s case – I find this unethical but apparently it’s not illegal and so here we are. I’m going to keep my thoughts short. What I loved about this was how fast paced it was. Sarah is a character that I love to hate – I felt for her but also could never wrap my head around her and some of her decision making… though I understood her frustration with Adam because OMG…. Adam made a lot of stupid moves, should lay off the scotch and keep his dick in his pants. Hey Adam – YOUR KISSES ARE NOT COMFORT. Haha – what can I say, I actually like when I need to yell at them.

    I did think being in Adam’s head could get a bit repetitive and what I thought were plot holes, did get filled(ish) in at that ending…. and that ending… phew. I don’t mind suspending some belief and you’re gonna have to for this one. I wasn’t having it but I also was like I KNEW IT (for some of it anyways)! *insert evil laugh* But you know what, I was entertained and was in an “I HAVE TO KNOW” mood and I love it when a book doesn’t let me put it down.

    4.5 rounded up to 5.

    If you are a domestic thriller lover, this book is a must! I was able to figure out some things, but there is one part of this story where I just had to cover my mouth and say OMG. As a constant thriller reader, that rarely happens.

    I’m leaving the synopsis out because I think the less you know the better.

    The story is amazing. Male and female voices in alternating chapters make this a really quick read.

    The ending will leave you stunned! If you enjoy twisted endings and domestic thrillers this one is for you!

    Would you defend your husband if he was accused of killing his mistress?

    What a question! This one liner had me hooked before I even turned over the first page of this fantastic debut from Jeneva Rose. Following couple Sarah and Adam Morgan, a dark tale of passion and murder is woven, Adam waking one morning to the news that the woman with whom he’s been having an affair is dead, brutally murdered in the bed that Adam shared with her just hours before. Adam quickly becomes prime suspect of the particularly vicious crime which carries a possible death sentence in penalty. Wife Sarah is one of the most successful defense attorneys in DC – as Adam’s only hope, can she really represent her husband in a trial for murder, knowing that he committed adultery?

    This is an incredibly well executed book, told from both Adam’s and Sarah’s real time points of view in alternating chapters. As a character Adam oscillated between being simply unlikable as an adulterer to having me pull my hair out at some of the ill-considered self-sabotaging choices he made. Sarah, on the other hand, epitomizes success and beauty without compromise to her values, rendering her an admirable character from the outset, except where some of her interactions with the office patriarchy are concerned. At times I was little taken aback by her interactions, tipping over the point of what may be described as ballsy into real world disciplinary territory.

    An absolutely gripping read that had me racing through the pages to finish within a single sitting, The Perfect Marriage brings it all – deceit, deception, and twists you will never see coming. The last 20 pages of this novel had me gasping in disbelief, rendering me incapable of anything other than focusing intently on the culmination of Adam and Sarah’s story until the very last word. It’s truly a must read.
