The Flirtatious Couple by Shakira R. Thompson follows the story of three friends who are out to rekindle the fire in their relationships. Having gone through the slump of being parents, and working hard at their careers, they each find that the spark in their relationships has died out. Rhea in particular feels the need to rekindle the flame after her twins have left the house for college and she realizes neither she nor her husband know how to be themselves or be together without the kids as a buffer.
The Flirtatious Couple by Shakira R. Thompson was such a refreshing read. Taking a look at the real-life situations of three women, we see how relationships often take a back seat to other priorities in life like one's children or career. I love how Thompson explored this concept and showed that with a little bit of effort and the right amount of willpower, you can make anything work. The story itself was set up really well, slowly introducing the characters as well as their situations. The main focus of the book was primarily on Rhea and her husband Rico but I loved the addition of her friend group and how they influenced the situation. It added such a real-world dynamic to the story which made it so easy to become immersed in the plot. Overall, I found The Flirtatious Couple to be entertaining but also so authentic to the human experience. I loved every bit of it and would highly recommend giving this book a read.
