Covet by Tracey Garvis-Graves
The book is about a family, a happy family, that becomes strained and tested when Claire's husband, Chris, loses his job. When Chris finds a job, it requires travel and he's gone a lot which leaves Claire lonely and longing for her marriage but emotionally, Chris is spent.
Getting to read a little bit from everyone's perspective worked for me and I found the main characters all likable - not so much the neighborhood couples who I didn't connect much with and found confusing at times (I just couldn't keep them straight).
I was able to really connect with Claire and understand her perspective so much. And it must be said that I melted when Chris got in the shower with her - I truly felt his love for her in that moment.
