Review: Wednesday by Clare James

Twenty-one-year-old Aria Prince has just moved back to her hometown to start over after a painful divorce. She’s always prided herself on being an early bloomer, but had no idea she’d be married, divorced, and the mother of a toddler by twenty-one. Surely menopause was just a few months away, especially considering the hot flashes and night sweats. Or was that just exhaustion? 

Unlike her friends who were at school, going to parties, and sowing their oats—wild and otherwise—Aria’s days were measured in the number of orders she took at her family’s restaurant, the chapters she read in her nursing text, the amount of Cheerios she cleaned up off the floor, and the wet kisses she received from her son.

And that was just fine with her.

But when she began running into her former best-friend Tristan Green—who was home taking care of his sick father—at every turn, she remembered what it felt like to be just Aria. Not a single mother, or sleep-deprived nursing student, or royal screw up. And though she didn’t even have time to shave her legs, let alone consider a sex life, Tristan makes an offer she’d be a fool to refuse.

Each day they’d give themselves to those who needed them. Every day – except Wednesday. Wednesday they’d take what they needed from each other.

Did she forget to mention Tristan was gorgeous?

Or that they hated each other?

Well, you know what they say about the line between love and hate … it’s a skinny-ass bitch. The question was, could they keep their feelings out of it?

 

I have been a big fan of Clare James for a while and once I heard about Wednesday, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! And let me tell you, this is my favorite book by Clare James so far!

Wednesday follows the story of Aria and Tristan. Aria’s life is nothing like she thought it would be. After years of trying to make her marriage work, she finally has enough. She’s going through a painful divorce and is just trying to get her life back on track. So, she ends up moving back home. The last thing she expected was to run into Tristan. Tristan and Aria used to be best friends. That is, until Aria’s wedding day. Tristan tried to convince Aria to not go through with it. But, she had her reasons for having to go through with it… Aria is just a painful subject that Tristan wants to forget about….or does he?? Tristan and Aria may seem like they hate one another, but they share an undeniable chemistry that seems to only have intensified over the years. So, Tristan comes up with what he thinks is a brilliant idea: Be his for one day a week, on Wednesday. But can they really just have meaningless sex or will the feelings that have always been there, finally come to head??

Wednesday was a really fun, sexy read that is told from dual points of view. I was sucked in from that first page and couldn’t wait to read more. I found the characters very enjoyable and easy to relate to. I really admired Aria’s strength. It’s not easy to come back to your childhood home and to have to start over again, especially as a single mom. I appreciated how hard she worked not only to make her sons life better, but to better her own life. Tristan….what can I say about him. He was such a jerk in the beginning of the book. There times where I just wanted to reach through my kindle and slap him. But, I honestly couldn’t wait to get to know more about him and why he acted the way he did towards Aria. He definitely won me over in the end 🙂 As I previously stated, Aria and Tristan shared some insanely HOT chemistry….Be warned: It is HOT!!!

Wednesday gave me everything I was looking for and more. It is a quick, but fantastic read full of angst and hot romance! I really enjoyed this story and didn’t want it to end!
