Project Paradise (The Juniper Court Series) by Phoebe Alexander
Ummm, Holy Moly what a book!! What a great start to this series…I wasn’t sure how Id like this story just because of the lifestyle choice being chosen, and although not a choice I could ever make because I just can’t imagine the sharing part, I have to say this was written in a way that I could almost understand how this choice would be made.
David and Valley were happily married in every sense of the word, but they were curious and with Valleys sense of adventure and her insatiable needs David would do just about anything to make her happy, and he was a little curious as well.
Living on a cul de sac with other families who Valley was convinced had already formed their opinions about her, which she was pretty much fine with because she knew she would never be the coffee drinking lularoe wearing soccer mom that the rest of them were, made making friends a little hard. She didn’t know how to be discreet or fake and was never one to beat around the bush. We follow David and Valley as they explore something more, while still trying to be good parents to their two children. Can even the strongest marriage survive in this new lifestyle they are considering, and what will happen when the people in their small town catch on to it?
I loved both of these characters. Valley was awesome and I loved how she mothered her children, and loved her husband and how secure she was with who she was and offered no apology to anyone that couldn’t accept that.
I can not wait to continue this series, its going to be interesting reading different perspectives from different authors. I think this is an amazing idea, but just focussing on this one right now…This is my second read by this author and I can not wait to read more from her, this was awesome!!!
