Jason Hooper’s compelling new novel fuses a cheating wife and a gambling-addicted husband with one best friend caught in the middle of the truth. In a society where infidelity and marital problems are rampant, ‘My Best Friend’s
Rochester, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/21/2014 -- While millions claim to find love at first sight, today’s divorce statistics prove that morals and lifetime commitment are a dwindling culture. Love’s immense perceived power causes virtually all cases of infidelity to start in secret. In his gripping new novel, Jason Hooper depicts a marriage where both lovers are blind to the other’s faults…except that best friend; he knows exactly what’s going on. He’s caught in the middle.
‘My Best Friend’s Wife’ takes readers on a flashback-laden journey into the lifes Randy, Grace and Kardale; a love triangle that will have readers re-examining their own relationships.
What would you do if you found out your marriage was built on lies? How would you deal with your past mistakes if they were beginning to alter your present values? When would you decide to come clean about all your dirt?
Randy and Grace's marriage seemed to be perfect in the eyes of most, but a longtime friend Kardale knows the truth. Secretly, Kardale is caught in the middle of his suspicious best friend, and his alluring wife, Grace. When past events become more than he and Grace can handle, the truth begins to seep through the crevices of love. Sexually compelled by one another, Kardale and Grace fight within to escape their deepest desires of passion. In a story of love and betrayal where will Kardale ultimately end up? And most important, what will become of his best friend and his wife?
“No marriage is perfect, that’s just a fact of life,” admits Hooper. “The issue is that, in the pursuit of perfection, many spouses derail their own marriage by chasing infidelity instead of working through their problems or insecurities. Just look at today’s statistics; half of all marriages fail within five years!”
Continuing, “While of course fiction, this book straddles fact to teach couples some very bold and practical lessons about infidelity and other risks to their union. It starts with recognizing, accepting and somewhat embracing each relationship’s ups and downs. It will never be perfect, and non-perfect love can still be the most amazing and powerful emotion in the world.”
Since its release, the book has garnered a string of rave reviews. One Amazon user comments, “I can't believe the ending ....are you serious? This is a very good read. I love the concept of going from the past to present, past to present..it was awesome. I can't wait until part two. This book is great. Just when you think you have things figured out there is another curve ball.”
Tammi E adds, “I loved this book!! The story was intriguing, and the characters were interesting. I didn't know whether I should hate Kardale, or root for him.”
A fellow author writes, “Once I purchased it and began reading, I couldn't put it down. Excellent storyline and characters!!”
Due to this first volume’s success, the author has recently announced that he’s back at the writing table. Volume two in the ‘A Best Friend's Wife’ series is due for release soon.
