Book Excerpts

On The Other Woman

“I tried to talk to him…a deep conversation in the dark where we could bare our souls to each other. I asked why he wouldn’t let Anita go? What was it about her? With tears in my eyes and desperate to save my home, I was willing to learn, to become like her if that was what he wanted. If it was the sex, I asked him to teach me her moves”
