BEHIND THOSE EYES
First-time author Carter is
a wordsmith. Her a prologue is both rhythmically delightful and romantically intense. Typically a story of adultery would be unappealing or unacceptable, but it's clear that Nat and Taiyler must be together. Without the one, there cannot be the other. This touching, moving tale works on all levels.
Taiyler Richardson and Nathaniel Woods have perfect lives. Nathaniel's educated, financially stable and has a home life anyone would envy, including a beautiful wife who holds it down in the bedroom, at work and with their daughter. Taiyler's a physician with a private practice and a bevy of eligible, desirable men who worship her.
When she becomes involved with Nat's best friend, the results are life-shattering. This isn't the first lifetime in which their souls have touched each other, and even the most perfect life can't compare to what they feel for each other. (Dafina, Sep., 384 pp., $15.00)
