    A Lesson Learned

    This book is so much more than the title suggests. Cheatin¿ in the Next Room does a decent job of looking at the aftermath cheating has on all the people involved. Rhonda Lawson has a well-written book, that could be expanded to fully develop all of the central characters When Cheatin¿ in the Next Room hits the stands it is sure to be a well received and talked about novel. Meet Christopher and his newlywed bride, Andrea. Happily married for a year and three months after a whirlwind courtship, they are determined to make their marriage the ideal. Deeply committed to each other and their marital vows it¿s plain to see this couple has what it takes for success. Christopher is putting on front by covering insecurities and shame from his past. He was a player when he met Andrea in college and admittedly not ready for marriage but his selfishness caused him to propose to ensure no other man could take her away from him. It's soon discovered that his philandering ways obviously aren¿t out of his system. Andrea, a high school English teacher feels her life is complete. She¿s married to a man she loves and completely trusts. She¿s privileged to have her best friend Brenda living in the same city with her and they have remained close since tenth grade back in New Orleans. However, things take a rocky turn when at a Christmas party Brenda¿s twenty-year-old cousin, Alexis and Christopher lock eyes and shortly thereafter, locks other things in a short-lived affair. Admittedly a game to Alexis, to see if she could pull a married man, Chris falls into old habits and they both pay a terrible price for their indiscretions. Reading Cheatin¿ in the Next Room brings home the devastation deceitful acts cause. A marriage is at risk, a long-standing friendship is threatened, a budding relationship is destroyed and trust is annihilated. As the plot develops, it¿s clear raw emotions are controlling the outcomes. The realism of the writing makes reading this book more than something to cuddle up with on a lazy Sunday afternoon, it drives the point home that each action has an equal and opposite reaction and consequences. Both Christopher and Alexis found this to be true, the hard way.

    Good

    This was a good story I like the plot. It just goes show how strong a women is. Men have to realize when you married that women who don't respect them selves will always come at them hard Men just have to be stronger no matter how hard she try. Women do it all the time. I like that the author wrote a second book for Alexis but $10 its not worth it def if it might only be 200 pages like this book.
