P to an error Jason does the unthinkable But the truth he discovers is a heavier burden to carry than the innuendo that was eating him alive Now the tables are turned and he’s left holding a smoking gun An innocent wife A desperate husband A no win situation When the smoke clears will their marriage surviv. When Pace complained of feeling ill she was not expecting a blood test to show she was pregnant especially when her husband had a vasectomy three years before While Pace is convinced it is all a mistake Jason s faith in his wife is shattered especially when she lies about the doctor s report In short order their happy marriage begins to disintegrate into a morass of suspicion and resentment While Pace and Jason don t believe their relationship can survive without trust Pace s mother is trying to ignore yet another of her husband s infidelities Victoria has long ago lost trust in her husband but clung to the marriage for the security it offered her His latest fling though is a 20 year old intern the daughter of a friend and when Colin s secret becomes public Tori is finally forced to make a choice but can she trust herselfMisconception is an emotional domestic drama exploring the issues of trust communication and fidelity in a marriage Hayes contrasts the relationship between Pace and Jason with that of Pace s parents examining the issues the couples face and the differences in how they choose to deal with them Pace and Jason are characters that are easy to relate to married for a few years they are happy but under pressure with children and work and the intimacy of their relationship is a casualty Realistically I think Jason s reaction to Pace s unexpected pregnancy is understandable even in the most ideal of marital circumstances and Hayes captures the doubts fears and resentments caused by the situation perfectly The relationship between Victoria and Colin also has the ring of truth and I thought Hayes demonstrated Tori s conflict about the state of her marriage credibly There is no mention of this plot in the blurb which is a bit odd since it does have uite a lot of significance While the two plots intersect nicely I think they could have perhaps been meshed a little The writing is solid and Hayes demonstrates a good grasp of realistic dialogue There were a few minor errors in the text but they are barely worth mentioning The pace is good and I found it an easy and fairly uick read I must mention that the title is an inspired choice with it s dual referenceOverall Misconception was a pleasant read with an interesting scenario that had me considering what my reaction would be in similar circumstances Commitment is just a concept until it is truly tested

Hold Jason Kelly tries to get excited about another baby But a trip to the urologist leaves him staggered Despite Pace’s insistence that she hasn’t cheated Jason is left to wonder if his blueblood wife has finally grown tired of his humble background and their middle class lifestyle Unable to chalk it u. This review is cross posted at SkyInknetI received this book free of charge in exchange for a review It s the first time I ve ever read a book by a self published author and I was actually kind of excited about it While I admit I didn t end up exactly gushing over this book after I finished I feel like I ve been introduced to a new world of books and I think I might be interested in reading self published works in the futureMisconception centers around the Kelly family a wife husband and two boys The story kicks off uickly and we encounter the main conflict of the book uickly Pace Kelly is pregnant despite her husband Jason having gotten himself a vasectomy three years ago However despite the evidence Pace really didn t cheat on Jason Jason finds it very hard to believe Pace though because after getting his vasectomy checked out it s confirmed that there s nothing wrong and he shouldn t be producing any babies The relationship between Pace and Jason steadily spiral into a depressing state with both sides having serious trust issuesPace and Jason s relationship is the bread and butter of this story and it s their drama that kept me turning the pages figuratively it was an eBook so I suppose I should say scrolling the pages Hehe I personally think it would have been interesting if the third person narrator was less invasive in the characters thoughts because I think it would have been intriguing if the reader wasn t sure if Pace actually cheated or not I think the mystery would have been great incentive for readers to glue themselves to the pages or maybe that s just me I enjoyed reading about their drama filled relationship for the most part what with the accusations being thrown around the e mail snooping and the classic hiring of a private detective to spy on the spouse I love love love drama probably why I devour Jodi Picoult books like there s no tomorrow and I think Misconception pulled it off without being too unbelievable and making eyes rollBesides the Kellys Pace s parents Colin and Tori are also central characters in this book Colin is a famous senator and Tori is well his trophy wife I suppose you can call her Tori was my least favourite character however Not because of her person but because of her character There was something inconsistent in her character I felt I think it is especially noticeable when the narrator narrates from Tori s perspective then switches and narrates from another character s perspective but Tori is still in the scene She felt like two different characters sometimesThe plot is drama filled and moves along at a good pace which I liked There is one thing about the plot that kind of threw me off a bit though I could be wrong but to me Pace and Jason s relationship is the main focus of the story So I was a little thrown off that the climax of the story dealt primarily with Colin and Tori while Pace and Jason just kind of made up in the background With that said though I did actually uite like the ending I am a little confused as to why the focus was on Pace s parents instead but that may be because I misinterpreted Colin and Tori s importance in the story Okay I admit it I didn t find them that important But back on track I did like the ending I thought it was fitting and climatic and didn t have a denouement that overstayed its welcome which is something that really bothers me in books haha but I m glad I didn t have that issue hereThere are some technical things like typos rare and awkward sentences so I think Misconception could benefit from a thorough editing but I didn t want to be all nitty gritty Overall this is an okay book I feel a bit mixed about it but it s really not bad I think if you like family drama sort of books you should check it out the author s website shows the places where you can purchase it

Librarian's note This is an alternate cover edition for ASIN BYWhen suburban Atlanta stay at home mom Pace Kelly finds out she’s pregnant three years after her husband Jason’s vasectomy her once happy marriage is pushed to the breaking point Forced to put his dream of opening his own architecture firm on. Knowing the genre of the book you read sure helps when it s a cheating book This was listed appropriately as women s fiction and was a very interesting story about a young couple who have to regain trust after suspicions of cheating There is no way to prove it did or didn t happen so the couple has to just dig deep and work it out It was heartbreaking at times I really appreciated that the couple sought marriage counseling although I wish they had both seen it through consistently This is not a romance although I enjoyed reading about the breakdown and rebuilding of their relationshipThere is a secondary story about the h s mom married to a Senator who has cheated on her off and on for years This poor lady just keeps eating the crap he continues to feed her It was nice to watch her finally stand up for herselfThere were some very good plot twists having to do with both stories that tied the ending up nicely I got this for 99 and am glad I read it

    When you've accused someone of something they haven't done do you say sorry?I hope you answer yes because this book was missing a whopper of an apology I didn't find any of the characters particularly endearing and while the book itself was well written it was kind of convoluted and the jumping between story lines we hav

    Misconception was beautiful but very hard to read at timesPace Kelly a stay at home mom falls pregnant even though her husband had a vasectomy a few years back There seemed to be only one explanation that she had cheated The thing is she loved her husband than anything and vehemently denied sleeping with another man Jason refused to believe her Instead in his pain he distanced himself from his marriage and hired a detective to fol
