Once upon a time, Christine Thurman had the perfect
marriage. A girl from the wrong side of the tracks, she made
good by marrying Jesse Ray Thurman and helping him build a
business worth millions. Together, they were the perfect
couple-attractive, successful, and deeply in love. Christine
was convinced she'd spend the rest of her life by her
handsome husband's side.
But twelve years later, J.R. has
become obsessed with building his video store empire and is
taking his wife for granted. Feeling trapped and alone in a
dead-end marriage, Christine finds herself tempted by her
old haunts and the people she thought she left behind long
ago. Suddenly, without J.R. even realizing it, their
seemingly unshakeable bond has started fraying at the
seams-and Christine will do anything to break free.
Wade Eddie Fisher, a bad boy with good looks from
Christine's past. Wade left their hometown long ago to
follow his Hollywood dreams, but now he's back, penniless,
and as tempting as ever. Even though Wade is far from
dependable, he offers Christine something she can't seem to
resist. Soon she's immersed in a sultry affair, and before
she knows it, she's concocted a scheme so risky that it
promises to deliver everything she could possibly want-or
shatter the lives of everyone close to her.
