I love stories that explore different types of relationships. The idea that you can love your partner with all your heart but still feel that something is missing, still feel that you’ve lost that spark. That’s what’s happened to Dominic and Daphne’s marriage, so they decide that one day a year for the next five years they each can sleep with someone else. They call it THE FREEDOM CLAUSE.
It’s an exciting premise to be sure, but what makes this book so good is the whip smart, incisive writing from Sloane. Writing from both points of view, we are drawn into Daphne and Dominic’s lives as they navigate their potentially dangerous decision to open up their marriage. She takes us deep into the heart of the characters, makes us question their intentions, cheer at their successes and groan at their mistakes.
The author pulls no punches and weaves a raw and emotional tale of self-discovery and self-love that goes beyond the juicy premise. THE FREEDOM CLAUSE is a character study of relationships and society and I could not put it down.
