Jealousy, a stand-alone novel
He's the shoulder she leans on.
He worships her.
She shields and protects him.
He watches over her.
They're soul mates for life.
They're not lovers; they're best friends.
Their struggle to find someone who can handle their intense bond is met with a roller coaster of raw emotion, loyalty and heartache.
Follow their journey to find love.

Hailed as Will and Grace meets Sex and the City, two best friends, a straight woman and a gay man, struggle to find someone to love as much as they love each other.
When Heather Cooper married Peter, she thought that she had finally found someone who could handle the inseparable bond she shares with her gay best friend, Justin Perrotta.  It's only a matter of time, however, before jealousy rears its ugly head and Peter's true feelings emerge.  He starts drinking and his erratic behavior threatens their marriage.

Burned by an ex-boyfriend, Justin refuses to open his heart to love again.  Wild relationships and one night stands leave him lonely and unfulfilled, even though he will not admit it.  He finds love when he least expects it, but his fear of commitment threatens to ruin the best thing that has ever happened to him.
My Review
  I loved the Prologue and how we get to look into the past. I have always loved authors that give us that brief glimpse into the past and actually dedicate part of the book to helping us understand the back story  on some or all of the characters. 

While I have read other books by this author I had not had the privilege of reading this one and so when offered the opportunity I jumped in headfirst and with no hesitations. Now while I totally loved the book, I have to say that all the issues that arise from Justin and Heather not being able to explain their relationship in a way that everyone would be able to understand is a little bit silly lol. I do however love how she jumps to the defense of her best friend when she feels he needs it, but at times I want to say " Chill out chica!" lol .

I honestly have to say I knew something would end up happening with her husband eapically with the way Justin is always in their life. Other than that, the book is really quite good and draws you into the story.  I was quite sad when it ended lol. The author has a way with words and can have you almost there in the book with the characters instead of just reading it. 

Overall a great read!! Check it out!! Four Stars all the way!!
