Living in Glass Houses by Zoe McNight
I am happy to be closing Zoe McNight’s tour for Living in Glass Houses because I loved this book! What a page turner, and one that really kept me thinking. The story follows three main plot points. There is Jonathan, a college basketball coach who is dating somewhat of a Park Avenue princess. After he meets the new hire at his college, he starts to see what life could be like if he was dating someone with similar interests and background. But he has a choice to make – his princess who makes a bombshell announcement, or the woman who truly thinks he can’t live without. Blair fell in love with her now-husband in college, but his somewhat celebrity status boosted his ego and his wandering eye has turned her jaded. When Blair finally thinks her marriage is in a good place, her past decisions and own indiscretions come back to haunt her. And finally there is Elle, an NYC editor who is in a happy relationship with the man that everyone thinks is her Mr. Right. But Elle can’t seem to move on from a past relationship that ended suddenly and without closure.
I was really fascinated with each character’s story. I will say that I didn’t like Jonathan very much, but his story kept me interested and thinking, and I truly had no idea what his final decision would be. I liked that there was no clear cut ending for everyone. Each character had big decisions to make, and I was truly invested in each journey and how the book would come to an end. The title definitely works; the three friends all seem to judge each other when they need to step back and examine their own lives, and this is a really fabulous contemporary read. I couldn’t put this down, and I give it 5 stars and a spot on my Favorite’s List!
