Description from the publisher:
Sometimes the monotony of life gets in the way and we forget about what’s really important…
Seven years after their fairytale wedding and a year after the birth of their first child, Kevin and Brianna Phillips face the biggest obstacle of their lives. Immersed in her role as a working mother and feeling self-conscious about not losing all the baby weight she put on, Brianna is tired, frustrated and resentful that Kevin can’t understand how she feels.
Kevin has never had a problem taking second place to his baby boy, but being treated as though he doesn’t exist is more than he’s willing to tolerate. He loves Brianna, new curves and all. The last thing he wants is to walk away, but when she refuses to admit there’s anything wrong he’s left with few options.
In a last ditch effort to save their marriage Kevin books a weekend at an Intimacy retreat. A little voyeurism combined with toys, bondage, and a fantasy fulfilling ménage and before long, it becomes clear that good or bad their actions at the retreat might just change both their lives forever.

This is a stand-alone novel, not part of a series.
Brianna Phillips is a wonderful mother dealing with the baby blues and the “baby fat” that she hasn’t yet lost. Her husband, Kevin, loves her completely, even those beautiful new curves. What he doesn’t love is her depression and the effect it is having on their marriage. To re-fire the missing passion, Kevin books them for a weekend Intimacy Retreat. Toys, time, and a fantasy treat just may change their lives.
I have been Brianna. I think many, many women have been Brianna. That first year after the baby is born is centered on the baby and if you aren’t careful, you find yourself forgetting about the marriage that produced your pride and joy. One of the best things that Brianna discovered was that believing her husband when he said he found her sexy will encourage him and herself. You don’t get to decide how someone else sees you, but your reaction to their compliments will determine how they respond to you afterwards. What an awesome revelation!
It’s not hard to say that I love Sienna Stapleton. Her stories are full of passion, but they are also full of reality. I find it easy to see myself as one of her lead characters, and isn’t that what we all want in a romance? I call her books “comfortable reads.” For me, that means that it isn’t going to add any more stress to my life. Instead, I can relax and enjoy a little happy escape. Sigh!
