Marisa Rae Dondlinger’s new book, Open, is available now!
Can an open marriage save a relationship?
Or does it spell the end?
When Alex and Lila married, they dreamed of having a big family. Fourteen years, two children, several miscarriages and a stillbirth later, Lila is devastated when Alex torpedoes that dream by getting a vasectomy without telling her. Alex, a doctor, doesn’t believe another pregnancy would be safe for her health or her heart. Lila shuts down—her body, mind, emotions—unable to cope with her guilt from the stillbirth, Alex’s betrayal, and her unrelenting ache for another child. They grow apart, functioning as little more than co-parents.
Trust broken, intimacy extinct, Alex proposes an open marriage. A proposal he quickly regrets. Guilt, frustration, and heartache shadow him after each hookup as he realizes there is no substitute for Lila. But it might be too late. Time apart from Alex drives Lila closer to Geneva, a dynamic, yet haunted woman who helps awaken Lila’s passion and voice. Secrets, sex and lies come to light, causing Alex and Lila to reassess their motives and desire to save their marriage.
