Between the fallout from his father's latest shady business dealings and his wife Charisse's alcoholism, Evan Murdoch has his hands full. But he should be most concerned about the scandalous affair Charisse is having right under his nose - with his half brother. Evan's being pushed to the edge, and no one knows that better than Leila Hawkins....
Leila is back in Chesterton, divorced, penniless, and desperate enough to do anything to save her mother's home from foreclosure - including turning to Evan, her former best friend. But Evan isn't interested in friendship. Instead he makes Leila a shocking indecent proposal.... Meanwhile, Evan's newlywed sister, Paulette, wants to be the perfect wife. But a blackmailing bad boy ex has reappeared in her life - and he's threatening to reveal her most painful secret....
The scandals just won't quit - and for everyone involved, desire, betrayal, and lies are all in a day's work....

I wasn't prepared for the ending. .and when the narrator said "the end" I literally stared at my phone and immediately Googled when the next book will be out. This story keeps you on your toes. Sometimes I found myself yelling at the book...lol. When you can place yourself in the story talking to or yelling at the characters, that's how you know you have yourself a good story...a great book.
Audio books are growing. I have listened to books for months now, But I prefer my books in paperback/hardback format.
CATION: There maybe spoilers in this review.
this the second book I've read/listen to by Shelly Ellis. her books always catch my attention. I may check out more of her books.
I just wanted to throw my phone a cross the floor when I was listening to this book . the family in this book irked me so much. like they rather keep the secrets and or mess up their marriage or stay in a bad marriage. the only people in the book that didn't make me right were Leila, Antonio and Terrance.
but end the end they finally reveal there secrets and finally told. I was so glad of that. I got excited and said YES when Evan caught his wife Clarisse and his half brother Dante in the slower I'm like FINALLY.
And last but not least I had to laugh at the end when Paulette watching the news. I was glad Antonio didn't leave her. I did wanted to know what else happen between those to I didn't like how it ended I felt like it should've been more on Paulette and Antonio part.
This was a fantastic story about Murdoch family. The narrator kept me very much engaged in the drama with Evan and Leila's affair as well as Paulette's blackmail drama. Can't wait to listen to Bed of Lies to figure out who killed Paulette's ex who was doing all the blackmailing. I hate that snake of a 1/2 brother Dante. He is out for revenge on the Murdoch's for the sins of their father.
This was a good listen...the characters were great. I didn't like Donte though. He should have expressed his concerns. His family would have accepted him.
