The Husbands by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Dorian and Augustine are two men who are happily married to two beautiful women, they have the lives they want and everything they could need, that is until the day that an assassin brings them together in an extremely unexpected way. They meet in unusual circumstances, but soon find that their relationship is blooming and they begin to care for each other, however, when things look like they could cross some lines and break apart their current lives and those of the ones they love, they decide to stay away from each other and hope that the distance will help them to heal their broken hearts.
This plan seems to be working fine and for the next few years, things move along in both their lives, Dorian with his self employment where he controls how much or little work he does and Augustine his graphic design business, as well as each of them supporting their wives in their endeavours. Unbeknownst to the men, their wives meet each other by chance and become fast friends and declare that they would like the husbands to meet and become friends too.
So, one night, one of the wives invite the other to a party they are throwing and when they introduce their respective husbands to each other, the men are completely blindsided and everything that had been left behind comes crashing back in full force. What will become of this pairing and how can they keep things friendly without acting on the temptations they are faced with every time they meet up? This is a tangled web of unrequited and forbidden love, with secrets, lies and half truths scattered throughout, as denial and temptation rear up to create a bubbling sea of uncertainty.
