*ARC received for an honest opinion
This was a really sweet story about a married couple, Mason and Bridget
Jackson. Both Mason and Bridget realize that their marriage is in
trouble. Although they are still very much in love and committed to
each other their work is taking away a lot of their time together.
Mason is working hard and trying to provide a good life for his wife.
He thinks that when he makes partner he will be able to dedicate more
time to Bridget. But can their marriage survive? This is the question
that Mason is facing. Bridget also realizes that their marriage is in
trouble. They are both working too much and spending little time with
each other. When they are together their conversations are either
tension driven or non-existent. Valentine’s Day is coming up and it is a
pivotal point in their marriage. This is Bridget’s favorite holiday but
she is not sure that Mason will remember since he forgot their
Although this is a very short story, it is really engaging. The author
clearly shows how much these two people love each other and how badly
they want their marriage to work. I won’t give away too much but I will
say that Mason does remember Valentine’s Day BUT it is not the result
that they both want. This was a really great read. I thought the
author was able to make me care for the characters even though it was a
short story. I also thought that she was able to clearly show how much
Bridget and Mason care about each other. Mason and Bridget have a high
end lifestyle but when they were newlyweds they struggled financially.
This is the reason that Mason wants to make partner and be able to take
care of his wife. At the end they both realize that they need to make
some changes. Can their marriage survive? It is definitely worth
finding out! Short but perfect treat for the Valentine’s Day season. Do
Mason and Bridget get their Happily Ever After?
