Review: The Divorce, by Nicole Strycharz

The Divorce (The Relationship Quo Series Book 1)The Divorce by Nicole Strycharz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I first saw reviews start to pop up on friends’ pages for this book, I knew I had to check it out. I had no idea that I’d love it as much as I did. This book was like a drug for me. I could not put it down until I had finished it.

Jenzy and Chris met in college and were instantly attracted to each other. Their chemistry was amazing. I loved the spontaneous, animal-attraction that these two had going on…at least, when Chris wasn’t screwing it up.

Fast forward several years and all of the spark in Chris and Jenzy’s marriage has been snuffed out. They’ve been married for seven years and for the last two Chris has treated Jenzy deplorably. My heart broke for her with each instance of his callous disregard.

When Jenzy has finally reached her breaking point, she tells Chris that she’s leaving him. She’s done. Put a fork in it. Believe me, it was long overdue by the time she reached her limit. I was cheering her on big time.

Faced with losing his wife, Chris is forced to face how badly he screwed things up. There is no doubt that he definitely screwed things up royally either. As blind as he was to his wife, he didn’t see this coming. The guy was truly clueless.

While Chris is determined to win his wife over again, Jenzy is determined to move on. She’s formed a friendship with another man and wants a clean break from Chris so that they can both move on with their lives. After all, he didn’t want her around anyway.

I loved this story! At first, I hated Chris. However, as flashbacks of their past were provided, I began to see more of the guy that Jenzy fell in love with. Even though he messed up everything, I felt bad for Chris and I wanted to see him win Jenzy back.

For the most part, this book is one big “grovel-fest”. I love, love, love a groveling hero! Chris had it coming…but he had the good sense to realize that it was on him and boy, did he ever have to work for it! I was in heaven!

From start to finish, I loved this book! If it hadn’t been for some pretty frequent grammatical errors, which proved to be distracting, I would have given this book 5 stars. It was that fantastic for me. Of course, all of my friends know that I love a her that gets taken down a few pegs after they’ve wronged the heroine. So, it probably isn’t any big surprise that a book devoted to the hero’s groveling would be a huge hit with me. Loved it!
