Synopses & Reviews
Franklin and Celeste's open marriage seemed
perfectly safe — until the day Amber entered his life
and showed them why the heart does not obey rules.
To make an open marriage work, Franklin and Celeste knew they needed to make
sure no one else ever came between them. That meant there had to be rules. No
overnights, no falling in love, and either one of them could ask the other to end
an outside relationship if it became too much to deal with. It worked for nearly
two decades — and their relentless focus on their own relationship let them turn
a blind eye to the emotional wreckage they were leaving behind them.
The rules did not prepare them for Amber.
"I have a question," Amber would say. And whatever came next would send a
wrecking ball through Franklin and Celeste's comforting illusions. Amber was the
first of Franklin's polyamorous secondary partners to insist on being treated like a
person, and the first to peel back the layers of insecurity and fear that surrounded
their relationship. Amber was a game changer.
A game-changing relationship is one that uproots and redirects your life. It
overthrows your assumptions about who you are and why. It awakens you to
possibilities you'd never conceived of. It disrupts. And it is the unspoken elephant
in the attractive showroom of polyamorous relationships.
This book is the true story of a game-changing relationship that changed not only
Franklin and Celeste's lives, but the face of the modern polyamory movement.
A game-changing relationship can happen to anyone. How will you handle it
when it happens to you?
Franklin and Celeste's open marriage seemed perfectly safe--until the day Amber entered his life and showed them why the heart does not obey rules.
