The X book review
The X is a paperback book written by Lorena Bathey. Below is the book description:
Clarissa Hadonfield had it all. She lived in a lovely home surrounded by affluent intellectuals, had a successful husband, and two phenomenal teenage boys. With the ring of a doorbell she finds her life substituted by one where she has to fight for her children against an evil she never knew existed and had been sleeping next to for the last twenty years. When Clarissa's X shows his true colors, she finds she must become a strong woman who cannot only grow prize-winning flowers but can place a devastating roundhouse kick. Teaming up with Bryce Brightman, an ex-FBI agent, she uncovers a woman whose only goal is to save her children. This story is about what a woman can do when she put her brains, her brawn, and her boots into changing the course of her life and protecting the ones she loves.
When I first learned that I would be reviewing this book, I was rather eager because the title in itself intrigued me. Having been through a "situation" with an X myself, I do enjoy reading "realistic" fiction regarding that matter. It amazes me that I'm not the only one who went through it, and although this isn't a book about the authors experiences, it somehow makes me feel like I'm not alone.
Once I started reading this book, it was a page turner. I couldn't put it down. It was the typical expected story line, nor was it incredibly predictable. I'm impressed with the authors style of writing and happy with the book.
Whether you can relate to the subject matter, or just like a good read, than this book is for you!
