New Author Alert* Hello Book Buds, I found a new author to tell you about. This was my first book by this author. The way this story ended; I’ll have to wait to see what happens with this couple. I’m sure we’ll hear from them again. Yes, this story had a cliffhanger ending! You’ve been warned! With that said, this was still a nice story, a slight mystery with a romantic element. This story focused on a couple having marital problems because the husband could not keep his junk in his drawers. Shayne and Miles had been together for many years. During which time, Miles had cheated too numerous times for Shayne to count. Miles was a Police Detective who used his skills of negotiation to manipulate his wife. Or so he thought. Keep that in mind. A woman scorned.
Miles was a much-decorated detective with a stellar police record and a reputation with the ladies. He and his best friend, Rich were known to have a fling or two. Richie was, however, a very single man. When Shayne caught wind of a message from one of her husband’s conquest, she made it her mission to once and for all have her husband atone for the cheating over the years. Shayne wanted to meet the woman her husband was cheating with, and she was also seeking a method of revenge that would hurt him to the core.
While Miles was on a case to solve a heinous murder of a mega-church pastor and congresswoman’s son, he met a young female intern whom he was attracted to, and would later be a person of interest in the murder. His attraction to the young intern felt like he’d met his Achilles heel, as he fought hard to quell his attraction to be a better man for his wife hopefully, to regain her affection. Miles really did appear to love Shayne; he just had an odd way of showing it. His man parts always calling for another woman’s parts was the excuse he gave for his addictive behavior. Meanwhile, his wife was actively seeking a way to get her husband’s full attention, as well as, seeking revenge. The more she planned,the more Shayna devolved into a manic state of craziness by the time her plot was hashed and executed.
In the meanwhile, Miles unknowingly went about his way being the ladies man he’d always been, attracting women from all corners and discarding them without a care in the world. When he discarded a woman he called Jay, she would be the one to bring Miles life to its climax and his eventual fall from glory. Shayne’s plan to exact revenge against her husband was a volatile plan which involved his best friend, his lover, her lover, and a murderous plot. With the conclusion of this story, readers, had drama, sex, deceitful acts; and a little bit of crazy. The story left me upset and a little miffed with the eventual outcome. I will say, however, the story was worth my time. Give this story, and this author a try. My review 4.0 Stars.
