Christopher and Andrea Lee seemed to have a strong, unshakable marriage. They were happy surrounded by friends, and even happier with each other. And with him being a sports writer for a major Virginia newspaper and her being a popular high school biology teacher, they had the financial stability to get both the townhouse and the Forerunner well before 30. The only thing stronger than the Lees’ marriage was Andrea’s bond with her lifelong friend, Brenda. But all bonds are tested when Christopher meets Brenda’s cousin, Alexis, who visits during the Christmas holidays. Alexis is a 20-year-old college student who is used to getting what she wants and not quitting until she gets it. Now her eyes are set on Christopher, and she’s not letting a little detail like him being Brenda’s best friend’s husband get in the way. Although he tries to resist, Christopher begins an affair with Alexis, believing it will be their little secret until she goes back home. But when the truth comes out, it rocks the worlds of not only Christopher and Andrea, but the worlds of everyone around them. This is the story of how one indiscretion can tear down more than just the lives of the people involved.
