First of all, I’m not sure how I feel about this book. Some parts are entertaining and intriguing, while others, not so much. At times, it was all about the sex, and others times it was quite boring and I was unsure if I was going to finish this book at all.
I really love the main couple, Henry and Effie, and how they had no idea what they were getting themselves into once they started their honeymoon. And let me say, they had quite a wild adventure.
Their honeymoon started off slow, as they were getting used to each other’s company.
One night, they run into Clara, an old friend of Effie's cousin and she invites them to a party that introduces them to all kinds of things they have never been exposed to. Enough alcohol and time, puts them at ease, and days later, their lives are changed.
Effie and Henry get caught up in Clara and her boyfriend Max’s lifestyle, one where wealth and ennui and alcohol fill their days and nights. As the younger couple, all full of small-town Georgia innocence, get pulled deeper and deeper into the swirling eddy that is Clara’s life, they find themselves questioning their judgment, their morals, and even their new marriage.
This book was angsty and intense at times.
