Amie's Review of Because by Jennifer Foor ~ REVIEW TOUR ~

Seven Year Itch book 4
By Jennifer Foor

I’ve heard if you can make it through the first seven years of marriage you’ve made it past the tough part and it’s smooth sailing.
Whoever said that was an idiot.
I’ve been married for seven years, and in that time I’ve waited for my immature husband to grow up and become a responsible man.
It still hasn’t happened, and I’m at the end of my rope. I need him to be a father to our child, not someone who needs his own toys to be content.
I want a partner, not a guy more concerned about his friends than his wife.
This is my marriage, and before I throw in the towel I’ve decided to do something drastic to make it happen.
I’m Shayla Vincent and this is my story.


This is yet another story by J4 that shows the actual reality of what some married life is like. I am not one to pretend things are perfect, luckily my marriage doesn't have this struggle BUT it has plenty of its own. I can say regardless of either of their actions this story really does show the emotional roller coaster of what married couples face daily. I know some people find their perfect match and their lives are perfect BUT for the most part at any point in a marriage these struggles can come out of nowhere. Bran was quite the douche and I hated the way he acted most of the time yet I get how he got to that point. Shay has some pretty serious self image issues and a major trust issue. Did Bran cause all that ?? Maybe but still Shay needed to get a hold of those emotions and her actions before she drove Bran to do the things she always assumed he was doing.  The fact of the matter is they were deeply in love but so lost that they didn't really like each other at all. Not all their methods had the desired result but there was no denying that they loved each other and had a great physical connection. Their daughter may have been a driving force to attempt to stay together but in the end we all know you have to stay together for more reasons that children. Sometimes it is worse to stay for the kids. They both make their mistakes and they both make their efforts. They try and fail and try again. They both change but not specifically for the other more so to better themselves which in turn is the desired result they needed to survive as a family. Not an easy read but it is a realistic one. Nobody is perfect and we all say and think things that we don't mean, you can't go back and change things but you can choose to make the effort to move forward and not repeat past mistakes !!
