 A solid marriage, a thriving business, and the esteem of their close-knit Alabama community - Joyce and Odell Watson have every reason to count their blessings. Their marriage has given well-off Joyce a chance at the family she's always wanted - and granted Odell a once-in-a-lifetime shot to escape grinding poverty. But all that respectability and status comes at a cost. Just once, Joyce and Odell want to break loose and taste life's wild side, without consequences.

This book started out pretty well, but then in the middle it dragged. The ending was not what I expected. I like Carl Weber and have read so many of his books. This one is interesting but at the top of my list of his books.

Although Isaac Conley and his wife, Cydney, live under the same roof, being married to each other is a nightmare. Isaac is a dirty cop with a partner, Miguel, who is just as grimy as he is. They take on the streets of St. Louis by using extreme force, and by surrounding themselves with ghetto girls who love to fulfill their manly needs. Cydney is well aware of Isaac's adulterous ways, but she has plenty of skeletons buried in her closet. Her motto is: if he can do it, I can do it better. Not only does she attempt to do it better, she seeks revenge by giving up the goodies to Miguel.

I was glad to come across a book by these two authors that had nothing to do with Rachel and Jasmine. This standalone read was an enjoyable read. although at times it seemed a bit slow, it definitely picked up at the end and gave readers a nice surprise. Enjoyed getting to know the two main characters and others in the book.
