sharing you book coverReviewed by Jennifer Jensen

In her latest New Adult genre novel, Molly McAdams challenges her readers’ views on the the subject of infidelity. Sharing You is centered on twenty-somethings Kamryn Cunningham and Brody Saco, who meet and fall in love when Kamryn moves to his small town to escape a life of privilege and a loveless relationship. Brody is also dealing with demons of his own—a wife he no longer loves, and a five-year-old tragedy that continues to haunt him and keeps him in his tension-filled marriage out of guilt.

Kamryn and Brody are instantly drawn to one another, but Kamryn has no interest in being the other woman. Brody’s intense feelings for Kamryn and the belief that he is meant to spend the rest of his life with her give Brody the courage that he needs to finally end his marriage with the manipulative and spoiled Olivia Reynolds—if Brody can convince Kamryn that their love is worth waiting for, and if the secrets that they both carry do not tear them apart for good.

Molly McAdams was inspired to write Sharing You after meeting a couple who had met and fallen in love under similar circumstances to her fictional Kamryn and Brody. Anyone who has ever intensely loved another person will be able to relate to the emotions that McAdams describes in this book. There were several moments where I had to pause and reflect, knowing that the words I’d just read were something that I’ve felt in my own life and during my own romantic journey.

Sharing You is an addictive and easy book to read, the first from Molly McAdams to make its way into my to-read pile. While I enjoyed the book very much, I was taken out of the love story a little bit because of the dialogue. It was too rambling at times, and some of the things that Brody and Kamryn said to one another were a bit too unbelievable. Even so, Sharing You is a book I do recommend—if you can keep an open mind due to the sensitive nature of the subject matter.
