Publisher's Summary

Best-selling authors Candice Dow and Daaimah S. Poole team up for this dazzling tale of one man, two women, and a pair of marriages.

When Dwight Wilson is offered a big promotion, the wrinkle is he must move from Florida to Maryland. Although Dwight accepts the job, his wife Tracey decides to remain in their new Florida home. Try as they might, their relationship ends in divorce, and Dwight eventually marries co-worker Alicia Dixon. And that’s when Tracey comes back into the picture—with some rather surprising news.

Seriously?

I'm divorced. I have a divorce decree from a court to prove it. I stood in front of a judge, signed my name, had a witness and got a file copy back in the mail. I didn't hear it from someone. I didn't assume it went through. I know I'm divorced. So how (in hell) could someone "think" they're divorced? And when the "wifeys" find out, is there any chance (in hell) of them living together like one big, happy family while they share a man? Seriously, I think not!

Great

I really liked this book and would recommend it . It had a great storyline and sexual storylines. I wish this book was a movie or TV show.

It had some misconceptions about adulterer. Alisha was single and not an adulterer, but Dwight was married and he was the adulterer. The girls started out 3 and 5 and the several chapters later the were 5 and 7 years old in less than a year. I like for the storyline to be as close to realistic as possible, but still a good book.

The crazy ending should had revealed what crazy Tracey did to Alisha. With her craziness destroying her husband's career and bond with his son and her daughters bond with the baby. Not even Dwight's family getting to know him. There should have been epilogue with Dwight's mother revealing what happened and mad that she couldn't see her grandson.

Wow!!! This is a good one!!!

This book is very interesting & it has doubled authors. The story took me into the golden rules of the how the Blame Game is actually played. I thought all was well that ends well, then BOOM, it takes on another direction all together. They say justice is blind, but thank God for smart judges. These characters demonstrated manipulation to the 10th degree. OMG, I never talked back to a book so much.
The narrator Simi Howe, always does a great job.

these two women and the man were sick

this whole twisted story was unbelieveable but I know it happens. the man was a well educated creep. and his wife a twisted spoiled brat. the two belonged together. the other woman was also an educated nut to agree to live with the arrangement presented to her. she was presented as a strong single woman but she wasnt. the narrator's were awesome. but the story was just too far fetched. the judge should have taken the child and gave custody to the paternal grandmother.

Poor Alicia

Its really messed up she was a victim of their messed up marriage. She didn't ask for any of it he chased her even when she told him she wasn't interested. My heart breaks for her. My mom always told me if a man has an ex-wife and she not dead don't deal with him no truer words have ever been spoken. Tracy is a bitch and Dwight is an punk ass jerk.

Wow

This books has me all in my feelings. Really didn't like Tracy's character, she was selfish and self-centered. I really was rooting for Alicia and Dwight. Tracy really was the definition of not knowing how good you have it til you lose it. Dwight needed to have more of a backbone and I wish he had been more aware of Tracy's schemes. The way they did Alicia in the end had me in tears, how could they think the way they were going about things was okay. Alicia should have never agreed to that arrangement in the first place but no one deserves what they did to her.I cried right along with her.
I had to wait a day after finishing this book to write this review because I was so distraught after this book ended. The writing and narrating of this book is great, provoked feelings from me even though I know its fiction.
