Publisher's Summary

Vanessa Chavez is a successful assistant chef in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She's rich with friends, loved by her family, but she has one giant Achilles heel: she keeps falling for married men. Not that she knows they're married: each and every time she's duped, mistaken, taken for a ride, outright fooled.

When The Husband Habit begins, Vanessa has just fallen for a married guy yet again-but this time, the wife finds out about Vanessa and tries to run her over with her mini-van. There's nothing for a girl to do but take a vow of celibacy and figure out why she makes bad choices over and over again. Vanessa focuses on work (sure, whatever), hangs out with her parents (boring!), and resists the efforts of her friends Manny and Lucy to set her up on dates. They introduce her to Kevin, and even though on paper he's all wrong, he's got great manners, and he's awfully good-looking. Not bad in the kissing department, either. But just when her guard goes down, the red flag goes up: Kevin, of course, is married. But could there be an innocent explanation?

Disappointed

This is not a fun beach read. It starts out funny with the main character inadvertently dating married men but then takes a left turn and becomes a political statement. I have read/ listen to this author before and I am sorry to say that they have lost me as a reader for any future books. (by: Mrs. Jefferson)

Slow start, good middle, predictable ending...

Slow start and then it got good, but then the end was abrupt and a bit predictable. I did not enjoy this book as much as I did the others she wrote. It was Okay...kinda short too.
