Publisher's Summary

Millenia Black’s debut novel reveals how relationships are affected when individuals use duplicity to cover up bad choices.

For six years, Reginald Brooks - slick Disney marketing VP - has pulled off the perfect scam. He has juggled two families without the other one finding out. He stays two weeks in Miami with his wife and two young adult daughters, and the next two weeks in Orlando with his trophy mistress and their young daughter.

But when the charade unravels, it’s clear there’s been a lot more pretending than anyone realized. Soon wide-ranging consequences begin to take their toll.

PRETTY GOOD READ - WORTH THE CHIP

I enjoyed this book very much. The narrator, as usual, does a fine job! The story was very good and I enjoyed the surprise. I have no regrets about spending a chip on this. I think that if you enjoy something that might seem a little far fetched and can keep an open mind, you will like this. I say far fetched because I'm not one to handle duel relationships. It contains a sad part to it but overall the book was quite entertaining.

The lives we live

This book was very slow paced and a little boring, but I found myself stuck at the end of the book where the great tragedy happens. The way this man played with his 2 women was ridiculous and it made me realize that some people will never understand how things affects others until they are truly affected by negative consequences. Something I learned from reading this book is that, no one ever knows anyone and don't ever trust every word that comes out of anyones mouth. From this book you see that the people who seem to have the most allegiance to you will be the ones to stab you in your back and betray you just like they betrayed Jesus. Narration was good but the story could have been a little better.
