What is a woman's greatest temptation? How far will she go to find fulfillment—and how much is she willing to lose? Tempting Fate is an unforgettable, enthralling novel about the risks and rewards of "having it all" from beloved New York Times bestselling author Jane Green.

Gabby and Elliott have been happily married for eighteen years. They have two daughters. They have a beautiful, loving home. Forty-three-year-old Gabby is the last person to have an affair. She can't relate to the way her friends desperately try to cling to the beauty and allure of their younger years. And yet she too knows her youth is quickly slipping away. She could never imagine how good it would feel to have a handsome younger man show interest in her…until the night it happens. Matt makes Gabby feel sparkling, fascinating, alive—something she hasn't felt in years. What begins as a long-distance friendship soon develops into an emotional affair. Intoxicated, she has no choice but to step ever deeper into the allure of attraction and attention, never foreseeing the life-changing consequences that lie ahead. If she makes one wrong move, she could lose everything—and find out what really matters most.

  • Very realistic

    By Andrea*Inez
    Good book, I felt this story could have happened to anybody. Too descriptive at times, but mostly kept my attention.
  • My least favorite of Jane Green

    I usually devour her books in 1-2 days. This wasn't as convincing. The writing lacked the authority that I found in: Another Piece of My Heart, Family Pictures, The Other Woman, Promises to Keep, and Dune Road.
