The Idea of Him by Holly Peterson ~ Review & Book Tour

Book Summary: 

In the fabulous and intrigue-packed new novel from Holly Peterson, the New York Times bestselling author of THE MANNY, THE IDEA OF HIM explores the dangers of falling for the idea of a person, and why facing reality is more liberating than we ever dreamed it could be. For anyone who’s let the fear of being alone keep them from seeing who someone really is, THE IDEA OF HIM is an inspiring, action-packed story of what happens when we embrace our own power and allow the truth to finally set us free.

Allie Crawford has the life she always dreamed of—she’s number two at a high-profile P.R. firm; she has two kids she adores; and her husband is a blend of handsome and heroic. Wade is everything she thought a man was supposed to be—he’s running a successful newsmagazine and, best of all, he provides the stable yet exciting New York City life Allie believes she needs in order to feel secure and happy.

But when Allie finds Wade locked in their laundry room with a stunning blonde in snakeskin sandals, a scandal ensues that flips her life on its head. And when the woman wants to befriend Allie, an old flame calls, and a new guy gets a little too close for comfort, she starts to think her marriage is more of a facade than something real. Maybe she’s fallen in love not with Wade—but with the idea of him.
Captivating and seductive, told in the whip-smart voice of a woman who is working hard to keep her parenting and career on track, The Idea of Him is a novel of conspiracy, intrigue, and intense passion—and discovering your greatest strength through your deepest fears.

I will be totally honest in this review. I didn't even look at the book synopsis as one of my reviewers was going to read this book but there was a bit of mix up and I took on this book. When I first started reading it I was thinking oh no another infidelity book (seems to be every where I look this year) and business/politic type people. I am soo not a political person. I wasn't too sure about it but read a bit more and guess what?? I was hooked. So hooked that I tried to cram it all in whenever I got a couple minutes (even while cooking dinner). 

This is the first book I have read by Holly Peterson and I will say now I am interested in reading more. The author has a way of drawing you into the storyline and keeping you wanting to know more. This book had a little of everything ~ lost of soul searching for the answers to what ifs with past loves, tempting hotties, lies, money and everything in between. There were moments that I just wanted to lose it on Wade for being such an ass but then again there were times I was telling Allie to get out while you still can. The suspense got really thick and I couldn't wait to find out the truth of the whole scandal including who is this sexy mystery lady named Jessica. This was a great book especially since I wasn't sure at the beginning and the author was able to draw me in and keep me until the very end.

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars!
