Twenty-three year old, Kamryn Cunningham has left all she’s ever known and moved to a small town where no one knows her name, who her parents are, or her social status in the horseracing world. Months after opening her own bakery and evading attempts of being set up by her new best friend, she meets Brody. Kamryn fights the instant pull between them because there’s a detail she can’t dismiss. Brody’s married.

To say that twenty-six year old, Brody Saco has had a rough marriage would be an understatement. After marrying his pregnant girlfriend, he spends the next six years in a relationship filled with hatred, manipulation and guilt involving a tragedy that happened five years earlier. When he keeps running into his sister-in-law’s best friend, Kamryn, he can’t ignore that she makes him feel more with just one look than his wife ever has; and soon he can’t continue fight his feelings for her.

When staying apart proves to be too difficult, Brody and Kamryn enter a relationship full of stolen moments and nights that end too soon while they wait for Brody to file for divorce. But the guilt that comes with their relationship may prove to be too much for Kamryn, and Brody might not be strong enough to face the tragedy from his past in order to leave his conniving wife.


Thoughts:
Sharing You is a book that you are either going to love or hate. For me, the story blew me away and I couldn't have loved it more!

Brody Saco married his high school girlfriend for all of the wrong reasons and he has been paying for it everyday for the last six years. Not a day goes by that his wife Olivia doesn't degrade, guilt, and manipulate him. But Brody's stuck with it because he made a commitment to her and he knows that she is not all to blame for her behavior. Only when he meets his sister-in-law's best friend, Kamryn Cunningham, does he start to wish for something more. With Kamryn, Brody feels an instant and deep connection, and he is not alone. No matter how hard they fight it, neither of them can deny the heavy pull to one another. When they finally give in to the thread pulling them together, Brody and Kamryn find home in each other's arms. But Brody is still married, regardless of his growing love for Kamryn. And Kamryn doesn't know how long she can live with being the other woman despite her love for Brody. Can Brody conquer his inner demons before he looses his other-half, or will his wife exploit his guilt in order to keep him under her thumb? This is not your average love-triangle, and there are two sides to every story....

Under the word 'Book Hangover' in the Urban Dictionary should be a picture of Molly McAdams. I don't know what magic she weaves, but every book I have read from Ms. McAdams has resonated deep in my soul and I have to find myself again when through. Sharing You made my heart hurt, my eyes tear, my gut clench...but it also made my body tingle, my heart soar, and my face light up and smile like I just won the lottery. McAdams seamless story-telling breathes life into each of these characters from the pages. You won't be able to help rooting for Kamryn and Brody, despite any personal feelings you might have on the subject matter. To see these two together, that first look, the first kiss, you just know that they were meant to be. There is no question about it. They're just not whole without the other. And they're struggle to be together, to find a way to stay together, gah - it was heartrending. I empathized with Kamryn during her entire journey and though I understood the path Brody took I still wanted to shake some sense into him at times. And Olivia, lawdy, if Disney need's a new villain Olivia is ripe for the role! The plot is fast-paced, intense, and absolutely memorizing

Sharing You is not a story about infidelity. It is a story about overcoming your past. A story about finding and fighting for your soul mate. A story about hope and love, and forgiveness. And I recommend it to any and all romance lovers looking for a deep, emotional read that will stick with you long after you turn the last page.
