Blog Tour:Book Review Binge (7 Year Itch #1) by Jennifer Foor

Binge - Jennifer Foor
Published April 27, 2015
series: 7 Year Itch #1
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Erotic, Drama

Flynn & Aria Roberts have had plenty of ups and downs during their seven year marriage. Everyone warned them not to wed so young - that they'd be missing out on the key years when people grow from young adults to mature individuals.

The only thing holding them together now is their love for each other, and even that is becoming questionable. To save the marriage, and the family they've already started, Flynn and Aria come up with an unconventional solution to help them find what's missing in their relationship.

The only problem is doing so involves rediscovering themselves completely, even if it requires them to be unfaithful. Can a marriage survive when vows are broken, or will chance encounters prove they've been missing out all-along?

Give in to temptation

You know those reviews that somehow convey all of the feelings you wish you could have about the book you just read. Well this is NOT going to be that review to do it for you, honestly I’m not even sure my review could do the proper justice for how I felt after reading Binge.

Probably like most the cover is what caught attention and the blurb intrigued me even more. I knew going in I could not lose on this one and I didn’t. Going into Binge I thought it was going to be an erotic tale of a couple exploring their sexual flavors with others. Kind of like a love triangle/ square, but I was wrong.

Jennifer Foor introduces us to a young married couple Flynn and Aria Roberts, currently their love life is not what it use to. Their story is like any real couple, that has real problems that need answers. How do I say I lost my job? Do you still find me attractive? Do you still love me? Why are still together? Finally needing answers to their questions they seek counseling, which at times seem to make things worse. The communication between these two was horrible. The highs and lows was sometimes overwhelming.

The pace of the story and dual POV kept my attention like no other. I honestly attempted not to get out of bed, except for food and toilet. I had mixed emotions about both characters, but the those emotions were mainly geared to whatever was going on at the time. In the beginning I was #TeamAria, she’s this young mother, basically forced to marry young, Flynn cheated on her, she was having the same self esteem issues that most mothers and wives: Am I good enough? Who am I?. My heart just went out to her, but as the story developed and layers were peeled away, I knew something was mentality off with this woman. She was all over the place, at one point I stopped liking her and switched to #TeamFlynn. While Flynn had this selfish thing going, but he also seem like he was more willing to try to save his family. He too was a young parent and I’m sure the his immaturity was the main cause of his indiscretions. Not to ever say that it was ok, but definitely understandable.

I believe readers that are married may be able to relate and maybe enjoy Binge, more than someone that’s not. There are issues that arise in the book that people may find disturbing i.e. cheating, lying, abuse both verbal and physical. Things became real. It also makes you think how far are you willing to go to not only save your marriage, but your family.
