Publisher's Summary

Lauren Robinson knows exactly what it takes to be the perfect mistress. She had a front-row seat when she tagged along with her father on all of his extramarital trysts. She loved keeping Daddy's special secrets, but many family members, especially her mother, consider her an accomplice in helping break up their family. This emotional distance and Lauren's early dating experiences lead her to date married men.

That is until Dr. Matthew King enters the scene, and when Matthew proposes marriage, Lauren happily accepts. But as their very public engagement makes the news, someone is intent on sabotaging their relationship. Someone who watched her own marriage destroyed by Lauren and won't be happy until she gives Lauren a taste of her own medicine.

Perfect depiction of a life lesson

I liked many things about the book. The characters were realistic, the story was easy to follow but not simplistic, the story was unpredictable, and, most of all, the story was an excellent depiction of the natural law, biblical principle, spiritual principle (whichever one prefers to call it) that you reap what you sow, what you put out comes back to you, what goes around comes around (however one prefers to articulate it). Also, the narrator was excellent (which is not usually the case with Ms. Billingsley's audiobooks). The only thing I did not like about the book is that although I understood the main characters and what caused them to become who they were, I did not like any of them. I would recommend this book to readers/listeners who like realistic, scandalous stories that reinforce life lessons.

Karma is a B**ch

This story was crazy but I really enjoyed it! It really teaches you to try and do the right thing because the tables always turn.

Okay book with great moments

The book was ok, started to get predictable. Figured out who the antagonist was pretty early. Lacks character development for ALL of the characters. Overall it was ok.

Overall not bad.

The reader made this book worth listening too. The story seemed a bit repetitive at some points. The characters were not developed fully both visually and emotionally.

Easy listening

This is good beach reading. It drags around the middle, but overall I enjoyed it. I'm a bigger fan of Kimberla Lawson Roby, though.

Another great read

This book was awesome right from the beginning. Never a dull moment. I didn't like the way the mother died, but I was glad to see Lauren get her happily ever after!!

A Good Read/Listen

This book has so many different dimensions, extremely relatable and debatable. If you are in a committed relationship with or without infidelity, or if you are the other woman/mistress, or lived in a household of either then this book is going to interest you. I was sucked in from the first page. A story of trust, of pain, or moving on and most importantly forgiveness. The story flows at the right pace and there's never a dull moment.
