~Review: Bittersweet Deceit by Blakely Bennett~

Lainie is a thirty year old, full-figured woman entrenched in a love affair with a married man. Although Lainie loves Mason desperately, she vows never to say those three little words while he remains with his wife.

Stayman, an enigma in Lainie’s close-knit group of friends, has been circling her with interest, trying to garner her attention. When circumstances make it clear who’s blocking his way—Mason—Stay goes full-court press in pursuit of Lainie.

Lainie doesn’t see Stay as relationship potential because she is blinded by her love for Mason. However, the more she learns about Stay, the more she comes to realize she never really knew him in the first place.

An unexplainable mystical connection evolves between Lainie and Stay and she has to choose between a man she so hopelessly loves and a man who offers her everything she needs.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

What do you do when you meet the man of your dreams and you find out he is married? He says that he loves you too but he will never leave his wife and children. Can a woman be satisfied with an arrangement that will never give her a happily ever after?  Will she be able to be the other woman and always be waiting for his text or call?  This is not the life that Lainie had imaged for herself, she wanted a family of her own, not a shadow life of wanting something that could never belong to her. Now there was Stay and the feelings she had when he kissed her for the first time.  How can she love two men?  She cannot be unfaithful to Mason, even though he is married to someone else.

Stayman had watched Lainie and waited for the time when she would be ready for a relationship.  Had he waited too long?  When she finally seemed approachable and he made his move she said there was someone else.  Stay still cared for her and told her he would be waiting when she was ready.  But can he really put himself in that position?  He has issues from his past relationships that may make it impossible for him to wait on Lainie.  He promises her that he will be there as a friend when she needs him but he cannot be less than number one to her.

Determined to be faithful to Mason her lover, changes when she sees him out with his wife and family for the first time.  They appear to be the perfect family and Mason seems to be the loving husband and father. Lainie knows that she can no longer be with Mason as the other woman and breaks off the relationship.  Will Stayman still be there waiting for her or has he moved on?   The answers to how they solve their problems are in this book and it is a must read!
