Wide Open: My Adventures in Polyamory, Open Marriage, and Loving on My Own Terms by Gracie X (2015-09-01) - Gracie X;
I received a copy of this book from Shelf Awareness.

Overall, I really liked this book. While the writing was simple, it was still well done and easy to read. Gracie X gives in depth coverage of her thoughts and feelings throughout her journey figuring out how to fit all the people she loves into her life.

As someone who does not know much about polyamory and open relationships, I really liked the way Gracie X explores various styles of relationships and describes the conflicts she encountered with mainstream views of love, marriage, and relationships.

The incorporation of the children from each marriage was also an interesting aspect and demonstrates that such relationships can be successful even when children are involved.

There is a decent amount of explicit sex scenes, but they are included to demonstrate the intimacy of the characters in their relationships and to show how the characters grow together. They add to the overall evolution of the story.

A good read that gives some great insight into one example of a poly relationship.
