Risky, fiercely erotic and deeply touching, Davitt Sigerson’s first novel is a revealing excursion into the shadowy territory where love and lust merge and the line between devotion and compulsion disappears.Nick is a trader on the London Stock Exchange, an honest, decent man. He has never been with anyone as desirable as Trish, so attuned to his moods and ready to embody his most intimate desires. Trish, an international marketing executive, is a completely modern woman: capable and self-confident, romantic and unabashedly sexual. Attracted by Nick’s good looks, his compassion and boyish charms, she falls for him, and within two months of their first meeting they are married. But when Trish’s past intrudes upon their happiness she makes a choice that will take their lives in extraordinary directions.Gliding between poignant depictions of fatherhood and scenes of high voltage sex, Davitt Sigerson has crafted a luminously written story about people—like ourselves—who try to do the right thing yet still manage to make a mess of their lives. Written with intelligence, kindness and an unfiltered awareness of the ways in which today’s women experience their sexual prowess, Faithful is a stunning debut.

Wonderful novel. A sensitive man's perspective on love and relationship. As a feminist I enjoyed Trish's sexual liberty.
Congratulations

I hated this book. It was one of those rare books that felt like it was harder to read than it should have been. This was another case of a book with characters that were just horrible people. They were uninteresting, even though their lives were so dramatic. The drama itself felt more tedious than it did entertaining.

It was boring. Seriously boring. People may want to call it complex, but it really isn't. It's just bad writing.

And the sex scenes? Oh my goodness. They were awful. Most of the time they felt demeaning. Sometimes they, along with the other commentary about the lives of these characters, just came across as completely misogynistic. It's almost like a treatise in demeaning women, especially ones who are willing to admit that they enjoy sex.

It almost felt like I was watching some horrible reality television program. No, wait. It was worse because the Kardashians have healthier relationships than these people.

I started reading this book at 11:00 PM---bad idea---I was up for two more hours, and had to force myself to go to bed!
Nick Clifford finds himself married after only dating Trish for two months. He knows her almost as little as we do, as we start reading. She seems fun and beautiful, and very interested in pleasing her man. All seems perfect, until page 14, when we realize that Trish is not the most faithful wife.
"She doesn't know the man with her, doesn't know why she let him buy her a drink at the hotel where they're both staying, doesn't know why she came to his room when the bar closed. She especially does not know why, when he kissed her in the bar, with his dark good-smelling skin, she didn't really resist."
Maybe this was the part that really threw me for a loop. I assume that people who cheat, at least feel guilty about it. She goes with her emotions, whichever way they fall. "What happened, in this second week of her marriage---does she feel bad about it? How can she? It has no connection to her real life." (Unfortunately, like many others, this is how people rationalize their little affairs.)
She comes home, knowing that she is not going to tell him. Why would she? He is loving, sweet, the kind of man that a lot of women say they want, and then go for the bad-boy instead. (Except for me, of course)
She finds that she is pregnant (hopefully by Nick, we never really find this out) and they are like the perfect couple "he is aswirl with joy, but too full of it to feel it as joy. He loves this women, easily to death and past it."
She sees her ex-boyfriend of 6 years, someone who really treated her badly in the past, and tries to get her back, knowing she is pregnant. It took her a few weeks. Just when you think she is going to stay with Nick, she leaves him for Joe.
After her baby, it gets more complicated. Nick is the greatest father on earth. Even though he moves to New York for half of the time (they live in London) he comes back often, has sleepovers with his baby, and proves to really love his daughter Charlotte, and she loves him as well. Does Trish ever stop sleeping with Nick? Does he want her to? Does Joe know? Does he care? These are the questions that get answered in this immediate page turner (almost) all the way till the end!
I realized that it's not so much the plot that sucks you into this novel. It's the author's style of writing. He makes you think, read back on what he's wrote just to make sure you have read it right, and the sizzling sex scenes. (I don't embarass easily, but I even felt a tinge of red in my cheeks while reading.)
I hope to find more authors like Davitt Sigerson in the future. I finished the book in two nights, and now I'm disappointed that it's over.

You know how when you say "I"m not a prude! Really! Really!" that it only seems to indicate that yes, you are indeed a prude? Well, that's why I am not going to bother to tell you that I am not prudish and I generally enjoy erotic storytelling. But I think there needs to be some kind of disclaimer on this book, because the eroticism consists almost entirely of anal sex. If this doesn't turn you on, then the book will not succeed for you in it's goal of being an erotic tale.

Trish, a super-naturally gorgeous British ad exec, marries her boyfriend after a short courtship and is almost immediately unfaithful to him with an old boyfriend. Almost as quickly she is pregnant (presumably by the husband, but no one ever checks, which would have been advisable in this case), and shortly thereafter leaves the husband for the (bad boy) boyfriend. The poor husband is left in a conundrum -- his child is basically being raised by the man who cuckolded him. At the same time, Trish begins an affair with her ex-husband, as he visits his baby.

Confused yet? All of this would be moderately bearable, in a dull, rom-com sort of way, except for the authors emphasis on anal sex to the exclusion of normal heterosexual encounters. (One honestly wonders how the aforementioned baby was even conceived.) As the main characters explain, a woman (like Trish) who actually enjoys anal intercourse is automatically a slut, because normal women only tolerate the practice in order to please their boyfriends (!!!).

As far as weird, twisted sexual thinking goes, this takes the cake. Ditto for all the descriptions of feces smeared on people, sheets, etc.

What can I say? I am not a prude, except maybe for where this novel treads. This isn't romantic or insightful -- it's misogyny, written in rather sadistic way. The author clearly doesn't like or trust women at any level, except perhaps for tiny babies.

Hopefully I have given you an honest indication of what this book is like, and therefore you can choose to read it or not, based on your individual preferences.
