Nadine and Jake Saunders were married as teens. Tied to one another by a night of passion that resulted in a pregnancy neither could turn away from. 
Now, years later, their children have all flown the nest and the pact they made as teenagers – to give one another the freedom to pursue their own dreams – has resurfaced.   
But freedom comes at a price …   
While Nadine and Jake begin to untangle their lives from one another, Jake embarks on a passionate affair with a beautiful woman, Karin Moylan. What he doesn’t know is the dark history Karin shares with Nadine. 

As lust spirals into dangerous obsession, Jake must break free from Karin. But he must also ask himself how well he ever really knew Nadine. What secret is she hiding? The truth, when it is revealed, could destroy them all.
 The  reason I read The Betrayal is that I liked the story line as I love reading novels about marriage and affairs.
I loved the storyline Jake Saunders in his younger days was once in a band and met a young girl Karin Moylan. When the band split up Jake married Nadine. Years later by chance Jake meets Karin Moylan on a plane. Jake begins an affair with Karin, but what Jake doesn’t know is that Nadine and Karin were old school friends. And by chance Nadine is about to meet up with Karin again.
The Betrayal is in a top league of its own. I totally disagree with what is on the back of this book that if you devoured Girl on the Train and The Husband’s Secret and Gone Girl then make sure  this is the book you pick up next. The betrayal is nothing like The Girl on the Train or Gone Girl. The Betrayal should be read as Laura Elliot is a very good author and if you are a lover of reading novels about affairs and marriage problems like I am then this is this book is right up your street.
 I did feel that the story was a little too long.  But I would really like to read Fragile Lies by Laura Elliot.

I fully recommend The Betrayal by Laura Elliot.
