Two years ago, Billie Tarrow’s husband left her for another woman. Shamed and divorced, Billie retreated to her family home in Port Townsend, far from her old life in New York. After a near-death encounter, Billie decides to return to the city that took everything from her.

But sometimes in the midst of heartache, hope suffocates the pain.

Satcher Gable has carried a torch for Billie for ten years. When she suddenly returns to New York a single woman, he can’t believe his good fortune. But convincing her to walk away from her heartache is proving more difficult than Satcher anticipated. A changed woman, Billie’s only goal is revenge.

F*ck Marriage: This book pierced me right in the heart. It was everything that I didn’t know I needed to read. I don’t have an unhappy marriage, in fact I have a good one, but we all carry our scars and this book strikes at all of those hurts and fears. There were times when I literally felt my heart seizing with Billie’s emotions and I understood her in a very deep way. This book kind of gutted me in the best way, and I ended up re-reading half of it immediately after finishing. Billie didn’t always make the ethical or right choice, and there were parts of this book that were excessively dramatic but it was also satisfying to see it play out like that. We all want that dramatic finish sometimes, right?
I think as women, many of us are Billie. Underneath all of our armor and our shields, we are just flawed people who want our person to love us. Every women should read this book at some point in their lives, and so I’m going to leave a few quotes below. These are selections I highlighted when reading the book for the first time.
“They act like they’re not the ones who’ve made us jaded in the first place, and then punish us for having battle wounds by leaving us for someone they haven’t fucked up yet.”
“Our truth is something we know about ourselves without a doubt. It’s woven into our DNA.”

We will rise, and we will build a new house, not a fortress, but a house full of natural light, surrounded by a garden of forgiveness and self-love.”
