Her. Him. Alone. Every Wednesday …

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.

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 – 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.

*Wednesday is a gritty and intoxicating romance from Clare James that will keep you turning the pages no matter what day of week you choose to indulge! *

 review

I am a huge fan of Clare James.  I loved the synopsis of this book.  However, this book fell short for me.

I was pulled into the book from the very beginning but at some point, I am not even sure exactly where, things started to become rushed and the characters fell flat.   I had a hard time connecting to any of them and just felt there was so much more that could have been added to the story.

For me personally, I felt that everything was too rushed  Aria’s ability to just go back and forth with her feelings on Tristan but none of that was explored or developed. Aria and Alex’s relationship and things afterwards just seem to be glossed over and not worked out.  There was some sibling rivalry with Aria and her sister Serena, but nothing ever came of that.  I just felt like there so much more potential for a better plot and was let down by how quickly everything ended.

I could easily visualize everything playing out and was really hoping as I was reading that we’d get more and more. Things were starting to get interesting and  we  were given some added tension around the 75% mark. But next thing I knew the books ends and none of that angst and drama played out.  WTH?!?!

Even for a novella, this book just comes across as underdeveloped.  It has the potential for so much more.  But that won’t stop from me reading more from Clare!

Author Bio

Clare James writes steamy contemporary romance and new adult stories, penning more than a dozen novels. Her Entangled Brazen debut, CAUGHT, was a #1 Amazon Best-Selling Romance Series, and the touching family drama, WEDNESDAY, also hit #1 as a category bestseller on Amazon.

 

Clare is fan of spunky women, gorgeous guys, and super-hot romance, and spends most of her time lost in books. When she’s not reading, you can find her locked away writing. Clare is also a former dancer and still loves to get her groove on – mostly to work off her beloved cupcakes and red wine. She lives in Minneapolis with her two leading men – her husband and young son – and is always on social media chatting with readers.
