A decorator with a thriving business, she soon finds herself involved with a client, a very married client, whose wife has befriended her Tess Martin has devoted the last twenty plus years to her family.

    2. This book had everything! But for some strange reason Tess and Jesse's story got to me the most. When are we going to learn men and women that married people are off limits! J.D. Mason really knows how to tell a story. Through her writing, while laughing I thought about these fictional and yet feasibly possible scenarios. And of course, it would have to include church folks. The writing takes off immediately and you don't exhale until you close the book at the end. Raymone and Renee are a hot me [...]

    3. What a surprising twist. This was an awesome tale of 4 women - Faye, the pastoral counselor for her husband's church whose harboring a secret that may put all of her parishoners' to shame. Elise who finds out the the man she is seeing is married and has 2 kids; Renee who is pondering doing something with a client that she becomes friendly with, and Tess whose husband is a deacon in the church and chasing everyone in town but her. It's a book about the choices we make and how we affect ourselves [...]

    4. Marital infidelity and its consequences are evident in this book. No one is immune. Truck drivers, preachers and successful business types. Most characters are not happy with their wives until their wives start noticing someone else. I liked Tess most of all. Her husband found her getting it in and really could blame any one but himself. Renee was smooth was Lewis crossed the line terribly. I love this author and her writing style.

    5. This was a very well-written book. Two powerful lessons to learn in reading this book, NEVER have an affair with married person and NEVER sit in judgement of others, especially when your house is not in order. I give this book 3 1/2 stars.

    6. This book was awsome and would read it again later on down the road.I would recommednded it this to a first time reader. Always something good going on never a dull moment. Lookinf forward to pick up something else from the author again.

    7. J. D. does it again! I love the way she tells a storyspeaking as a black woman, she gets us to thinking about our own issues and I cab really relate.

    8. Boring, to say the least. Too much/Not enough going on.I couldn't tell what each character had to do with the other, even if they were in the same room.

    9. Ive had this book on my shelf for at least 7 years and never read it. One of those books from the old online bookclubs where i forgot to cancel the auto ship so i didnt have high hopes. Glad that i finally gave it a chance!! Great story line, felt for the characters and very well written. Theres at least one woman in this story that any woman today can relate to on some level. Cant wait to read more from this author.

    10. Another good read by J.D. Mason🙌🏾The sex was steamy, the characters were whorish and each story line left me wanting more. I'm definitely a fan and I'm ready to move on to the next the next good read by J.D. Mason.

    11. Honestly, I was suspect. I didn't think it would be good. The only reason I picked up the book is bc I thought she was another author I was familiar with. I chose to keep it since I had already purchased it. I was not dissappointed. It is a must read. This book barely left my hands last night. I put it down only to pick it up first thing this morning. JD Mason is a wonderful storyteller. She pulled me in right from the start and it was amazing from beginning to end. This is saying a lot since i [...]

    13. Belinda's ReviewI really enjoyed this book. I believe what goes around comes around. Believe what's done in the dark will come to light. This book shows you why we should not look down on others thinking we got our lives in order and what happens to others won't or can't happen to us. Dr. Fay was a prime example of that. Thought she was exempt from what the other women she counseled was going through. In the end all the ladies got their lives on tract. They got rid of their cheating,two-time men [...]

    14. Wowwhat a goood read! If I didn't work I would have easily finished in a day. These four women's stories were so engaging I wanted to charge forward and not finish all at the same time. I loved that JD Mason made these characters come alive and be realistically relatable, flaws and all. I really ended with a bang and I loved it from the first page to the last.I highly recommend this book!

    15. This book was really awesome. I was especially fond of Elise. I thought she was going to do something horrible, but she came thru on top. Renee kind of deserved that ass whoopin, but dude didn't have to be an asshole about the fight and play like he was innocent. Lewis pissed me off. This book was too good and it should most definitely have a sequel!! J.D. Mason hasn't dissappointed me yet!!

    16. good booki have read to books in the past by this author and found both of them fantastic. i did feel it could have had more detail, lasted a bit longer, and did like how the ending between elise and her "man"

    17. I have had this book for years and cannot finish it. It is not a bad read but for some reason I cannot finish it.

    18. It was hard for me to start reading at first. But midway thru the book it started to get interesting. Loved the ending.

    19. This one goes on my list as one of the best I have read this year! An oldie but definitely a page turnerhighly recommended!

    20. Read this a while ago and oddly, I can't recall much of this book. But, I remember it was really good! I remember thinking there would maybe be a sequel.
