I have a confession to make. My story begins over twelve years ago, I was a different woman then. Like so many people, I was unaware that much of my life revolved around searching for love and approval. Yet you could say I had it all: a husband, two great kids, a strong faith, a fulfilling career and a lovely home. So why did I feel so empty, so lonely and so desperate to be loved? At the time I didn't have any answers, only an incredibly strong subconscious need to be valued and appreciated for who I was. My marriage of eleven years had been a happy one, but it had arrived at a place where many marriages visit, a place called 'familiarity'. Movies like 'Pretty Women' fuelled my fantasies. I wanted my own Richard Gere to rescue me from the curse of monotony. Herein lies my story, a journey through fantasy, adultery and ultimately, self- discovery. Subsequent events would change my life, forever. My actions prompted a year of sheer emotional turmoil. Certainly there was rapturous pleasure; forbidden fruit does something quite tantalizing to the taste buds. And yet as my tale unfolded, the outcome was one which I could not possibly have foreseen. So why would I want to share such a story? My hope is that it will help and inspire others. Many struggle with the same issues as I did, low self esteem, lack of confidence and an inability to accept oneself. As you read my story, I trust you will open your mind. Try to understand and, more importantly, apply the lessons learnt from my mistakes. If you can do this, your life can take on new and exciting possibilities, no longer confined by the constraints of your past or your mind. Alison x
If you think you are getting played, or if you are contemplating on cheating, you better think again! The reader will be able to relate to this book simply because none of it is new. Everyone has either cheated or has been cheated on, with very few exceptions. The thing is that no one ever really wants to talk about it ... until now. I’m giving you the goods on cheating and the devastating outcomes of getting caught so that you don’t have to go through it yourself. Trust me when I tell you, that it almost always ends badly. The stories are true, the people are real. The advice and some of my personal opinions are strait forward and not for the faint of heart. This is really going to hit home with the reader, and the dirty little details will make this a book that you can’t put down. It is packed with moments that will make you wonder “what will he do next?” From cover to cover, the reader will be entertained; they will laugh, get mad, and may even shed a tear or two. So send the kids to the movies, call the book club, and break open a bottle of wine. This one is filled with love, sex, friendship, family, and god; pretty much all of the things that make life...life. There is something for men and women, so everyone can enjoy this crazy ride that I call my love life. I will also let you know that no matter how hard you try to get away with it, “You’re Gonna Get Caught!”

Based on his doctrine of natural goodness, Rousseau intended the Confessions as a testing ground to explore his belief that, as Christopher Kelly writes, "people are to be measured by the depth and nature of their feelings." Re-created here in a meticulously documented new translation based on the definitive Pléiade edition, the work represents Rousseau's attempt to forge connections among his beliefs, his feelings, and his life. More than a "behind-the-scenes look at the private life of a public man," Kelly writes, "the Confessions is at the center of Rousseau's philosophical enterprise."
