"Do you guys know each other?," Jamie asks interrupting my thoughts, looking only at me for an answer. 

But I can't answer. I look up at Cole and he stares at me with those familiar green eyes that once were so warm. But tonight they're cold. His hands are shaking at his sides.

"Well?," Jamie prods.

"She's my wife."

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Charlie is one strong and feisty chick. She bulldozes through life with her head held high and her feet firmly planted on the ground. Her apartment's a mess, she can't keep a steady job, and she can't even  go a full day without getting into some kind of mishap. But she laughs if off with a shrug of the shoulders and keeps going. Nothing can bring her down. 
Well except for one thing.
Her past.
What happens when Charlie's past comes back to bite her. Will she get through it like she had once before? Or will the lies and secrets she kept buried somehow unravel into a second chance?

Mundane means run of the mill did you perhaps mean familiar?

This is great! I love your writing style. I can imagine the rest of the book to be as equally good.

Great first chapter!! :) I'm looking forward to getting to know Cole and Charlie and learning about their history. What happened between them? Why did they break up? Etc. I'm sure it's going to be a rollercoaster!!

I love how you always start your stories with a quote!! The quote you chose for The Truth About Love was perfect and very fitting.
                              
                              I'm sure this quote is the same. I can't wait to read the story and see where it goes!! :)
