My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What do you do when you need what you can’t have?

Meet Elisabeth, your typical mid-forties American woman: married, two kids, full time job, a house – the usual. She doesn’t know it but she is terribly unhappy with her life. Elisabeth isn’t looking for an affair or for Will but nonetheless she ends up with both and she is changed irrevocably. Her affair with Will forces her to take a good long, hard look at her life. Once she does, she is distraught to find out that she has settled into contentment as opposed to striving for happiness. Tear You Apart is a story of a woman coming to grips with having an affair. Readers will find it easy to identify with Elisabeth and Will’s dilemma. They both acknowledge that what they are doing is wrong but seem powerless to stop.

What do you do when you find out you’re unhappy with your life? Would you be able to sacrifice potential happiness for the good of your family?

Megan Hart has written a cast of characters that are very likable in spite of their innumerous flaws that make them more human. Readers will get pulled into the story simply to find out how it ends. It’s witty, romantic, devastating, and it will tear you apart right along with the characters.
