The Mess You Choose

Authors: Hart, Megan

Publisher: MIRA Books

ISBN: 9780369700582

Classification: Non-Fiction

Synopsis: New York Times bestselling author Megan Hart’s brings us a richly realized story about marriage and the nature of happiness…originally published under the title Tempted.

Anne has everything she’s ever wanted. A loving husband, James. A house on the lake. A perfect life. And then James’s best friend Alex comes to visit.

She was never a fan of Alex’s—didn’t like how James changed when he was around, nor how his penetrating eyes followed her everywhere she went. But sometimes the closest thing to hate…is desire. Anne can’t help wanting Alex. And, surprisingly, James doesn’t seem to mind.

As the three of them share a hot summer together, Anne discovers things about herself she never knew, and secrets about her husband that he never shared. Secrets that could threaten their perfect life together even more than an unwanted—or too wanted—houseguest. Anne has always reveled in James’s love for her…but she may not be the only one he loves.
