Rochelle and Nathan Moore, a successful couple, have hit a brick wall in their marriage. The passion is barely there as work obligations take over. Nathan’s goal as a husband and father is to make sure his family has financial security and the only way he knows how to do that is by working long hours on his newly started business. Rochelle understands that Nathan needs to build up his business, but at what expense. At her wits end, Rochelle does the unthinkable and it may cost her more than she bargained for when her secret plan is revealed. Will her plan cause her to lose her husband forever?

Desperate Measures is a tale that many couples may experience after a few years of marital bliss. Life’s obligations cause us to neglect our partner in one way or another. You start to feel as if you are single again since you are spending so much time alone. As the neglected spouse, you attempt to do any and everything to bring that sizzle back into your marriage, but nothing seems to work. How far is too far? Do you cheat on your partner? Do you seek a listening ear from a long lost friend? Or do you continue to work on your partner? In an effort to make things right quickly, we make rash decisions that cause more harm than good.

I applaud Atlanta Hunter on her great character development in this relatable story. We all know someone or have personally experienced the emotions that both Rachel and Nathan have displayed. You will find yourself battling with who is right and who is wrong. You will not be disappointed if you are looking for a great read.
