At the end of Not a Day Goes By, the terminally bisexual John Basil Henderson declares: “I’m back, in full form. And I’m out there. Roamin’. And switching lanes.” Now, in Any Way the Wind Blows, Basil, good-looking gadabout and homme fatal, is back at the top of his game (razzle-dazzling both the women and the men). All is well until Basil’s picture-perfect life starts to unravel....
Left at the altar a year before, jilted Broadway bombshell Yancey Harrington Braxton stages her comeback – this time as a recording star – but has she forgiven ex-fiancé Basil, or does she still need to even the score? As Yancey’s star continues to rise, her past threatens to catch up with her and she fears someone may be after her as well....
In a wicked little dance of revenge, Basil and Yancey struggle to keep their lives on track, while a chorus of unforgettable characters either come to their aid, or make matters worse. In the mix are: Yancey’s mother, Ava “Mama Dearest” Braxton, a diva’s diva and a second-rate showgirl housed in the body of an aging supermodel; the wise and wonderful Windsor Adams; and the new guy in town, Bartholomew “Bart” Dunbar, a rogue’s rogue and handsome hunk of a man who stands to make Basil look like a choirboy.
With just the right amount of wickedness, love, and compassion, Harris’s masterful storytelling and delicious plot twists will have fans and newcomers alike frantically turning pages trying to find the answer to the ultimate question: Does revenge ever really pay?

“Drop-dead gorgeous characters caught in a web of deception and sexual intrigue. . . . Quite tasty.” (The Washington Post)
LIFE just happens that way sometimes!
The story was pretty good and helps you realize the difference between men and woman. One thing that I can say is what people do in the dark come to lite each and every time. The characters were pictured very well and their roles in the story were well developed. I loved listening to this book and trying to find out what would happen and if they would find out the truth about Basil.
I had read this book when it wad first released years ago and decided to listen to the unabridged audiobook and was not dissapointed. The narration kept be engaged.
