Blog Tour: Sharing You by Molly McAdams

Twenty-three year old, Kamryn Cunningham has left all she’s ever known and moved to a small town where no one knows her name, who her parents are, or her social status in the horseracing world. Months after opening her own bakery and evading attempts of being set up by her new best friend, she meets Brody. Kamryn fights the instant pull between them because there’s a detail she can’t dismiss. Brody’s married.

To say that twenty-six year old, Brody Saco has had a rough marriage would be an understatement. After marrying his pregnant girlfriend, he spends the next six years in a relationship filled with hatred, manipulation and guilt involving a tragedy that happened five years earlier. When he keeps running into his sister-in-law’s best friend, Kamryn, he can’t ignore that she makes him feel more with just one look than his wife ever has; and soon he can’t continue fight his feelings for her.

When staying apart proves to be too difficult, Brody and Kamryn enter a relationship full of stolen moments and nights that end too soon while they wait for Brody to file for divorce. But the guilt that comes with their relationship may prove to be too much for Kamryn, and Brody might not be strong enough to face the tragedy from his past in order to leave his conniving wife.
Molly is the queen of angst ridden books and yet I willingly go in knowing this every time.
I love that this is based on a true couple that shared their story with Molly.  I am 100% against any form of cheating in a relationship but I also get that there are some people in awful relationships where they are manipulated and confused about what to do, not able to see any way out of it.
Kamryn was born into a life of wealth.  Her family are in the racing industry in Kentucky and she was pretty much raised by her nanny/housekeeper Barb.  When she overhears a conversation between her boyfriend of 6 years and her father she decides that enough is enough.  This is not the life she wants, she has dreams and she intends to make them happen.
Kamryn leaves and ends up in a small town where sets up her dream job.  She finds a great friend in Kinlee, who works in a boutique a few doors down and she has never been happier.  Kinlee is always trying to set KC (Kamryn's new name) up with various guys but she really isn't looking for anything right now.  Until she meets Brody.
Brody Saco is Kinlee's brother in law.  He meets KC at a gathering at Kinlee's home and there is this incredible pull between them, like insta-love.  KC has heard about his sad marriage and feels really bad for feeling so attracted to him.  The feeling from Brody is mutual though, he cannot take his eyes off her and he is completely drawn to her.
Now, once I found out all the details and background of Olivia and Brody's relationship/marriage I was able to get past the feeling of how wrong this was to a place of understanding that I was comfortable with.  Olivia is a class A manipulative bitch and I just wanted her to set Brody free.
I just loved Brody, he was so torn between wanting to be with KC and doing the right thing by his wife.  Olivia was completely belittling and destroying him.  He really deserved all the happiness that being with KC could give him but was so worn down by his years with Olivia.
Brody and KC know that what they have is worth fighting for but is Brody strong enough to fight for a happy ever after with her?
I just love stories like this, they test my moral compass and make me feel all sorts of things.  Well done Miss Molly :)
I give this 4 stars

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughters. When she's not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm ... or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
