"Two decades ago, Adam Sharp had a passionate relationship with an actress who taught him for the first time what it meant to find--and then lose--love. Now she's back in touch and Adam must decide if having a second chance is worth the risk"-- Provided by publisher.
On the cusp of turning fifty, Adam Sharp is happy with his partner Claire, excels in music trivia at quiz night at the local pub, looks after his mother, and does the occasional consulting job in IT. But he can never quite shake off his nostalgia for what might have been: his blazing affair more than twenty years ago with an intelligent and strong-willed actress named Angelina Brown who taught him for the first time what it means to find-- and then lose-- love. How different might his life have been if he hadn't let her walk away? When Angelina unexpectedly gets in touch, what does she want? Is a second chance worth the risks?

I don't know how much I enjoyed this storyline. A man almost 50 who has been in a relationship for over 20 years but pines for his first love Angelina who is married and has 3 kids. She contacts him out of the blue, invites him to France to spend a week with her and her husband Charlie. They sleep together with the consent of Charlie. It was a weird week with the three of them. This was a man's mid-life crisis and a couple who are having issues. I wasn't happy with any of them. I really enjoyed The Rosie Project.

I LOVED The Rosie Project, even though I didn't find the Rosie Effect as great, I thought I should give The Best of Adam Sharp a chance. Big mistake, it's never awful but it is plain mediocre. The ending is hugely disappointing.

This book started out well and continued to tumble downhill in my opinion. I loved The Rosie Project and was looking forward to another good read.

This was a great disappointment after reading his book the Rosie project. A book about what makes a marriage last, what if there is nostalgia for "the one that got away", it was trite shallow and had a ludicrous plot twist. The only redeeming feature was it was set to the music of our times as the protagonist was a rock and roll piano player. Same subject as A Separation which I read next and enjoyed
