    A wonderful book with an extraordinary endingThere are millions of women who would love to be married to Stan Boomer a solid kind executive with wealth and financial security Unfortunately after 23 years of marriage it’s Stan’s wife Betty who is uestioning the marriage Although she is a globe trotting journalist she is bored International assignments the finest food and wine and even a fling with her college boyfriend don’t give this woman what she’s seeking In truth I found Betty so self centered and me oriented I would have put the book down if it weren’t for the great story telling I’m glad I stayed around As the book delves into the demons that drive Betty to do what she does a whole new character emerges The choice she makes to change her ways is surprising and encouraging Stay with The Passion Thief It won’t disappoint and you may learn than you expected

    Add to Goodreads Buy on Synposis The tumble between the sheets can get a little stale and infreuent in some marriages At least that’s what Betty Boomer tells herself at night while Stan her husband of two decades snores upright on the couch Emboldened by too much Chardonnay she searches the Internet for her college boyfriend Michael the proverbial one who got away Memories of their youthful passion reignite a lust Betty thought had dried up long agoMichael responds to Betty’s cyber message and temptation calls this globe trotting freelance journalist While Stan’s idea of excitement is staying up past ten o’clock on a Saturday night Michael has evolved into a flashy Las Vegas casino manager with three ex wives Which man offers stimulation and which one brings monotony coupled with reliability is vividly clearWritten with the yearning and struggle many women feel Betty Boomer is not alone when she asks “Is this all I need or should I take another shot at passion?” Author Anne McCarthy Strauss brings us her latest women’s fiction coupled with a large dose of romantic comedy and a dozen long stemmed roses My Review 35 4 starsReview copy provided for an honest review This was a very well written book It touches on a subject that a lot of married people are afraid to talk about Are you still in your marriage because it's comfortable and expected? Do you still love your spouse? Or for that matter did you ever really love them?Betty's marriage has become a marriage without passion without substance they exist together and go about their daily life without connecting any Stan Betty's husband is dedicated to his work and provides a good home and life to Betty but something is missing They are no longer intimate and when they are it is expected holidays birthdays etc Betty begins to wonder what a relationship outside of Stan would be like she begins to wonder about the true love of her life the one who got away And at a particular lonely time she decides to google him and find him Not before long they connect and start having an affair Beth is living in the past and holding on to someone she knew when she was twenty Michael her ex has changed in many ways and didn't become what she thought he would But Betty can't let go her and Michael have a spark and passion that she hasn't felt in a very long time  As Stan tries to improve their marriage Betty begins to uestion everything Is she happy with Michael? Is she happy with Stan? Is she happy at all? This book was somewhat emotional for me I didn't know how to feel I liked it and found it thought provoking but it was hard for me too I can't say I really liked the characters but I understood them I went from feeling nothing for all three of them to really feeling for them That's what I think makes the writing so good but the book itself isn't something I typically read I'm a sucker for romance and a HEA and I'm not saying if this book did or didn't have that but it wasn't like I was rooting for anyone either I wanted them all to be happy at certain points and I wanted them to all rot at certain points I feel the characters were very self absorbed and even though time and time again Betty said Stan put her at the center of his universe I really didn't feel like he did Michael was just a mess and confused living twenty years ago and Betty didn't know what the hell she wanted I did like how it ended and how the author wrapped things up and even though this book was fiction it felt like a big dose of realty to me I would definitely read by this author I just don't think I was fully prepared for the realness of this book One thing I did hope for was a little about Michael in the endI have to uote this because I found it to be very profound and right on point Betty  I wanted to teach her that passion fades but true love enduresthat happily ever sfter can mean having someone to nurse you through a horrific illnessor leave the lights on until you get home But that sometimes even those things aren't enough HEA? 1 About the author

    Complimentary copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewBetty Boomer is in her mid 40s Dissatisfied with her marriage and the direction of her life she decides to reach out to her college boyfriend Michael Michael the flashy casino manager is the exact opposite of her husband Stan the workaholic banker Any woman would be lucky to be married to the loyal Stan however the passion has long left their marriage Betty flies to Vegas to meet up with Michael finding the flame is still very much alive and things with him are exciting and unpredictable The two begin a year long long distance affair but when Michael asks Betty to leave her husband she’s forced to decide between the two While many have an aversion to books that deal with infidelity The Passion Thief is an excellent story of finding oneself amidst the chaos of life As we age for women in particular all of the variables in life that are beyond are control empty nest menopause marital familiarity seem to culminate leaving us to uestion where our priorities lie While a work of fiction the book is a testament to that If anything the book serves as a cautionary tale that the grass is not always greener on the other side

    Pretty much boilerplate chick lit Wealthy woman with a seemingly happy life is actually unhappy and seeks out male attention to cure said unhappiness Meh I think I would have liked the story better if Betty was a likeable character Being in an unhappy marriage doesn't give you the right to cheat on your spouse Also Betty wasn't complaining about her 20 years of living a luxurious life Also I didn't really like any of the other characters Stan was clueless Michael was a buffoon the daughter was a dumb 20 something young wife and mom umm will be the seuel be the story of her eventual divorce? and the best friend Gin was just a weirdoThat being said I did read this book all the way through so I should say that it held my attention and kept me somewhat entertained

  6. Paulette C. Kent says:

    Must readLove this book Situations as old as time You may think someone has the perfect life Doting husband standing in the community money and a job that lets you travel to some beautiful places all expenses paid This was Betty's life But behind closed doors as often is things were uite different I think the story was beautifully written You could understand the feelings of all the characters especially the mess Betty got herself into I really didn't know how the author was going to end this book I was pleasantly surprised by the ending A great book about finding and being true to yourself Stepping back and taking inventory and having the courage to follow through

  7. Heather says:

    Well written storyline with characters who cause you to care about them The main character while flawed herself and therefore believable is highly sympathetic I would have liked to see a little denouement maybe another half chapter but it was enough to get the idea across of how it all played out in the endEspecially well written woven throughout the story are the portions where the main character struggles with what she perceives as her only options Man #1 or Man #2 I won't spoil it by saying what she eventually chooses

  8. Gladys Mills says:

    OMG This book starts off in familiar territory I am going through the same time of life I am horny with a husband who can't keep up He needs some Viagra to help him I don't know if I would seek an old friend but reading about Betty's rendezvous made me think twice I did understand her final decision to leave it all She needed to get herself together I can relate The book really helped me understand how to move forward in my life

  9. Jill Meengs says:

    I found this book to be very well written and the story engaging It focuses on something that everyone can relate to are you really happy or are you stuck in a rut because it's easy? Anyone who has ever faced a life alternating decision or who has dared to try to change their life so they are happier will enjoy this book I highly recommend it
