The Post-It Note Affair – Review

Published: September 19, 2015
Emily really can’t complain. She’s married to a wonderful man, her high school sweetheart, who still dotes on her as he did when he first laid eyes on her. They have a beautiful home together, and they each enjoy successful careers. On the outside looking in, Emily has what any woman would be perfectly happy with.
But it’s just not enough. Emily can’t help wishing for just a bit more—for that special spark, for that thrill of something new and surprising, for the shivery tingles running down her spine. For real passion—for true romance.
She never expects to find it during the workday and definitely not in the form of a sticky note.
Just one square slip of paper with a few handwritten words, tucked mysteriously into the contents of her purse and dropped right into her small world, marks the first of a slew of sexy surprises Emily couldn’t have anticipated no matter how hard she wished for them. She’s desperately sought after every one of the special moments in store for her, and there’s no question that she deserves them.
Even as Emily eagerly anticipates and thoroughly savors all of the excitement and mystery of what may come, she just can’t guess the roller coaster of emotions she’s soon to experience—or just how much it will change her.
And she may never guess just who—is leading her on the romantic adventure of her dreams.
The Post-It Note Affair – REVIEW
I honestly can’t figure out what to say here. I am so torn.
In the beginning, the novella was going great! Then it started to have a ‘let’s cheat on my great, boring husband’ type feel. Then it was sweet. Next, I got mad at the husband because he’s just so meh.
Slowly, I started to feel better about it, but then the ending hit and it was like, “Yep, I saw that coming.” There wasn’t much of a punch with the words; it was a fast-paced burn, rather than a sizzle and let the heat come. Honestly, the ending was completely meh.
I did enjoy the writing style and how the story came together.
Overall, this was a cute story.
