The Payback Club | [Rexanne Becnel]

The Payback Club

When it came to a woman scorned, not to mention two women scorned, maybe revenge was the best revenge. Thus when Joan Hoffman and Liz Savoie, both systematically dumped by the men they thought they loved, worked out side-by-side at the gym one fine day, they formulated a plan. A club, if you will. Why not go after each other's husbands? See them. Seduce them. And drop them.

Publisher's Summary

"Living well is the best revenge..."

Well, maybe. But when it came to a woman scorned, not to mention two women scorned, maybe revenge was the best revenge. Thus when Joan Hoffman and Liz Savoie, both systematically dumped by the men they thought they loved, worked out side-by-side at the gym one fine day, they formulated a plan. A club, if you will. Why not go after each other's husbands? See them. Seduce them. And drop them.

The plan was simple. The reality, however, was complicated by pregnant mistresses, embittered new wives, surly grown children...and then one of the exes went missing. And the members of the Payback Club were in for it now: Would they get even? Would they get everything?

Or would they get 20 years to life?

    "At Last! A Sap-Free Chick Story"

    As a business owner and mother of three young boys, I rarely find time to actually sit down and read a book written for adults. Lately, I've turned to audiobooks to inject something other than Elmo and Nickelodeon into my brain.

    The Payback Club was great from start to finish. Unlike others, the narrator did an excellent job of voicing the various characters without being annoying or insulting. The storyline held my attention and managed to qualify as a 'chick' oriented tale without delving into typical romance novel type fare (did I mention I'm an action movie watching, '24' series junkie type?)

    The author does an excellent job of making you care about the various characters and includes different ethnic backgrounds without being stereotypical. She also manages to convey the true sleaziness of the ex-husbands while contrasting that with other male characters of morality and substance (The Payback Club is, fortunately, not a club of man-haters.)

    I listened to this while working and while working out and was only disappointed when it was over. Looking forward to the next release from Rexanne Becnel. Kudos!

    "Just Real Fun"

    This is not high-brow literature, but it is real fun. The story could easily have gone down the road of a "men hater's" club, but instead the twists and turns takes this tale to a road of true friendship and a realization that no one is perfect.

    The narrator's female voices are wonderfully expressive, but her male voices sound very similar -- husky grating and not realistic. But truly, it idoes not matter. The story is too delightful.

    A woman's story that is well worth listening to.

    "Payback"

    Love this and the lady who read it - only thing was I thought the ending was a little weak for the paybacks that had gone before......should have had a little more of a sizzling ending.

    "Couldn't Happen to Two Nicer Guys"

    I loved it, wan't sure at first, but couldn't wait to find out the 'payback'. I took it with me on vacation to listen to by the pool and it was perfect. I laughed, I cried, I got mad, I emphasized; the resiliency of women is a remarkable and awesome thing to see.

    "Just so-so"

    I like a fluffy chick-lit book now and then. But this one is just good to pass the time and not much more. The characters aren't that compelling, sorry to say. Back to the Shopaholic genre for me.

    "Girls Rule!!"

    Cute story with a tidy, happy ending. Easy to listen too, kept me interested. Definately a book for women, doubt many men would enjoy it.

    I read, I write, I paint, I am in love with my husband. I am better at reading than writing, as I will at least finish reading a book.

    "Revenge of Three Women Scorned"

    Reminiscent of The First Wives Club and other story lines such as that, The Payback Club is a fun read. Women getting revenge and figuring out who they are in the process is always a fun read. The narration is engaging and the characters portrayed well. If you are looking for the proverbial beach read, you must add this to your list. I will listen again at a future date as I enjoyed the story line, even if it was slightly predictable.
