Candice Warburton's marriage is solid... like an iceberg. She doesn't realize how stuck in their ways she and her husband of five years have become until he leaves on a month-long business trip and the first man she ever loved makes her melt again.
Seeking a promotion, Candice can't tell her boss how uncomfortable she is working with the firm's new client, Kegan Underwood, whose abrupt departure from her life eight years ago left her shattered and insecure. She is determined to stay cool and professional, but Kegan proves to have other plans.
Candice awakens to how much is missing from her marriage and begins to weaken as Kegan's pressure intensifies until the night she lets things go more than a bit too far. Horrified at her own behavior, she agonizes over what, if anything, to tell her husband. Finally opting for the truth, she discovers that she wasn't the only one looking for excitement...
"Life, Love, and a Polar Bear Tattoo" is a women's fiction novel of 70,000 words.
Love the title. You've got the hook format down right but really you're going to need more zip than "they both slept around". We'll need some higher stakes here or it's just not compelling enough.
Start the second paragraaph with "Keegan Underwood" so that you have a smooth transition from paragraph 1 to 2.
