Publisher's Summary

"This isn't going to change our friendship or our marriage" is the vow wedded parents Tony and Rose Monroe make with Rose's best friend: beautiful, wealthy - but lonely - Cam Spencer. The three enter into an unusual romantic contract, but whether they can keep their commitment is another matter in this tale of love, passion, and greed.

Tony and Rose, deeply in debt, need a substantial influx of cash or they stand to lose their upper-middle-class lifestyle. Fortunately for them, Cam, a former fashion model turned venture capitalist with a talent for making money, is willing to bail them out. In return Tony agrees (reluctantly) to sleep with Cam one night every month for twelve months. It doesn't take long for Tony, Rose, and Cam to discover their pact comes with complications none of them anticipated.

If you are faithful in little things...

The conversation between husband and wife (Tony and Rose) was absolutely pulling me in. So I had no trouble getting settled with the story. Overspending, 2 cars, private school, selfish juvenile parent and oh yea 2 mortgages. I couldn't wait to get more into why and whose the big spender, well I didn't have to wait long.

But wait I did have to wait for was my brain to catch up. The situations shocked me, angered me and caused me to stop and reflect several times. I was amazed how easy the decision was made to move forward with the deal. But you definitely know who people are by their actions, just take time to watch and listen.

I am reminded of a Scripture lesson in Matthew it says its my reminder from Tony Monroe, when you make a promise keep it, no matter what and this parable well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much.

Reed did an excellent job with this story, a complimentary listen was provided by the author for the purpose of my thoughtful and honest review.

I received this book for free, for an honest review.

This book was an interesting read, different but enjoyable at the same time. The narrator really brought the book to life.

Beware - Unchecked Racism

I've waited a long while to write this one to be sure I knew how I felt about it... and I'm still right where I started. The premise was kinda interesting, even though it made the ending predictable. There was a plot twist I wasn't expecting, but it almost took something away from the kind of justice I felt like the book needed. The wife in this story was a mess, and we were clearly supposed to dislike her for her excessive spending, deception, and overall poor treatment of her husband. I just couldn't understand why she never really got checked on her racism. She called her supposed best friend a "mutt" and made a young girl cry with her racial slurs and notions, not to mention all the side comments. I found myself cringing a lot through this story. Maybe I'm not in the target demographic, but I sincerely hope that even people of the same race as the family in the book are just as averse to the racism.

The narration was good with quality sound and editing.

Sexual tones but really about money

This story is about a family and the financial struggles they endure as a result of the wife's overspending and complete lack of awareness of the impact her financial decisions have one those around her. Her best friend happens to be a beautiful, single and lonely millionaire. The wife cooks up a plan to pimp out her handsome husband to her rich bestie for 1 night per month in exchange for $10k each meeting! They both go for it and you can guess how their intimacy progresses throughout the year.

Overall, the most impactful part of the story, for me, was the spending addiction the wife has. It resonated with me personally due to my upbringing and allowed me to take another look at how that has impacted my adult life. Although the story is about this family as a whole, the focus is really on the wife and her spending. I would have liked to see her learn some lessons about her behavior and maybe even admit she has a problem and get some help. Instead the author ended it in such a way that there was no resolution for her. Honestly, I felt that the ending was a little too perfect. Not that I don't think everyone got what they deserved (they did), just felt it was a little to 'clean' and convenient.

I think the wifes story will resonate with me for a long time and I know I'll be revisiting this story in my thoughts for years to come.

Not a typical love story!

Not my cup of tea. I couldn't get too far past the narrator. She just threw me off and didn't give the book or the character justice. Not that there was much justice to be given. This book was too bland and weird for me to follow along with. Sadly I gave up before the book was over!

Review: Once a Month...

Plot was a bit weird. Narrator was pretty decent, able to pull off multiple characters. Middle of the story lagged; the ending was appreciated, but abrupt.

Good story!

I was provided a copy for my review.

Interesting story with flawed characters that made me want to yell at times. The story held my attention and I wanted to know how this would end. I did feel the ending was rushed. I would definitely read more from the author.

Karma?

Interesting listen~quite different. Tony and Cam are likable characters, Rose not so much~no amount of money or possessions would ever make her happy. I enjoyed the story and the narration. Unexpected twist with "Bia" and the family living "happily ever after".
