Reunited… A chance encounter lands NBA star Dallas Avery back in the arms of the woman of his dreams. A woman he hasn’t seen in years. A woman he soon discovers just so happens to be his fiancee’s aunt! But Dallas’ fiancee, Tori, isn’t ready to give up all that she’s worked for, so she makes him a shocking offer – go through with the wedding and she’ll still allow him to be with the one woman he now can’t seem to do without. Dallas will get a family, something her much older aunt, Alicia can’t give him. Tori will get the lifestyle she clamors. And Alicia will get the love she’s longed for all her life. Everyone will get a little of what they want. . . and maybe a whole lot of what they don’t. Be careful what you ask for… The details of the trio’s love life play out in the tabloids and on talk shows, making Dallas the center of an NBA scandal. And eventually, the doors slam shut on this open marriage and Dallas is forced to make a choice to end the chaos. But moving on is easier than it looks and by the time all is said and done, secrets will be revealed, passions will be extinguished, and everyone’s lives will be forever changed.
“You slept with my aunt?”
UMMMMM, HELLO!!! Did that grab your attention just like it got mine? Imagine hearing those words when you’re getting ready to sit down for your family’s Thanksgiving dinner. Better yet, you are the one saying them. Ohhhh, Tori! How could you not feel sorry for her right from the beginning?
Open Door Marriage was so different from most other books that are currently available. Here we have a NBA player torn between an aunt and her niece. But, the thing is he really isn’t torn. He is in love with one, but feels obligated to the other.
I don’t understand the concept of and/or why anyone would want an open door marriage, but to each their own. Kai has painted a colorful cast of characters and I found myself understanding why each of them would enter into such an agreement. Each character brought out a different set of feelings such as disbelief, desperation, disgust, all of which led to understanding. Open Door Marriage was a page turner and it helped to expose just how far some people will go and what they will accept to have some type of love in their life.
