Dwayne Joseph delivers a provocative novel about one woman's need for control. Manipulation and control is a way of life for Lisette. And she's paid well to do just that - manipulate and control. You see, Lisette is a Home Wrecker. That's her occupation. She's paid to "assist" unhappily married women by bettering their situations. But when she meets a potential client who knows the game of manipulation and control oh so well too, will the best woman win? With "Home Wrecker," author Dwayne Joseph has concocted a quick, easy and enjoyable read. "Home Wrecker," as its title implies, has drama for you. Easily recommendable. Reviewed by: Toni

Dwayne S. Joseph delivers an erotic, suspenseful treat in his newly released novel, Home Wrecker, a story about a woman who follows her calling of becoming a professional mistress for the benefit of women who are sick and tired of their husbands cheating, abusing, using, and mistreating them. Money, Power, and respect are three words to perfectly describe Lisette. Even before she began her career as a paid mistress, she was a successful head buyer for an Urban fashion company, bringing in thousands of dollars at her young age. The power she exudes can be credited to her sexy, voluptuous body that will lure any man to her like a moth to a flame. Lisette is also a no-nonsense diva with an attitude that will burn anyone who tries to double-cross her, which earns her the utmost respect from her peers.

It started out as a one-time business deal to help a friend out of a marriage filled with infidelity. Marlene, Lisette¿s co-worker and friend, is sick and tired of her husband, Steve. She is sick and tired of him coming home with the smell of another woman all over him. She is sick and tired of the unanswered phone calls that lead her to believe that he is with another woman. As Marlene pours her heart out to Lisette, a plan is born. Steve will soon be set up by Lisette and Marlene in a sexual web that will make his head spin, starting the beginning of Lisette¿s career as a Home Wrecker.

Lisette is bringing in more money than she can spend with an elite clientele that is expanding by the day. She is good at what she does and all of her clients agree. When Lisette receives a call from a mysterious woman beckoning her services with a little bit too much attitude, her home wrecking career begins to unravel before her very eyes. There is someone who wants to bring Lisette to her demise¿Will she use her money, power, and respect to save her life or will the mysterious caller succeed in her quest to destroy the Home Wrecker once and for all?

Dwayne Joseph brings his ¿A¿ game with Lisette, an unforgettable character that he delivers as if it were a woman who wrote `Home Wrecker¿. The dialogue is authentic, as Lisette narrates with a savvy, seductive, sophisticated, and at times, sarcastic language that truly defines her character with 100% accuracy. Although Joseph does not particularly care for writing sequels, you will crave one for this drama and suspense filled masterpiece.Highly recommended.

You're right Dwayne, this is a very unique story. The character Lisette, was a page turner for me. I can't wait for Betrayal! This book didn't take long for me to read, even though it was short. I agree with most, he got straight to the point, which is a good thing to me. I'm not going to say he rush the book, because to me, there were things that happened in between that made you wonder what's going to happen next. So, buy this book, its worth it. Lisette, you're truly a home wrecker!

"See, men are simple. They do all of their rationalization with their *****, and think that because God gave them chest hair, they're supposed to be the dominant ones." - Lisette Meet Lisette, a hardworking head fashion designer for an elite firm. Lisette has it all - beauty, brains, and business sense. When Lisette's co-worker, Marlene expresses anger with her husband cheating ways - Lisette comes up with plan that will give Marlene exactly what she needs. Lisette learned from an early age that all it took to get what she wanted was... "a subtle, seductive smile, a sexy gaze, or a you-know-you-want-it stance.. (page 9). Happy with the results, Lisette decides to become a HOME WRECKER full-time. Everything is smooth sailing until Lisette receives an anonymous phone call from someone who threatens to expose her Home Wrecker ways unless she is helped. Lisette who is used to being in control doesn't like anyone telling her what she will or will not do. The anonymous caller refuses to take No for an answer and decides to give Lisette a little taste of her own medicine. Lisette finds out KARMA is a B*TCH!! Will Lisette finally give in to the mysterious caller demands? Will Lisette find out who is behind the phone calls before its too late? This is the first book I have read from Dwayne S. Joseph and I could kick myself for not reading this book sooner. This book had me at "HELLO" - it was very fast paced - never a dull moment... If you think you know what a HOME WRECKER is.. Think Again!! 5 Stars out of 5 Stars Orsayor

Lisette is the baddest chick. She is a don diva that will make heads turn from both men and women. As the head buyer at LeVor Fashions making six figures, money is no object. Life was good to her, she didn't expect to make a career change. One evening winding down after a meeting Lisette's co-worker Marlene is sick and tired of her husband Steve philandering ways. She doesn't have the means of getting the evidence that she seeks to get a divorce. Lisette offers that she has a full proof plan that will put him to shame and Marlene richer than before. A deal is made and twenty-five thousand dollars later, Lisette has new profound career. Years later Lisette is still going strong and have made more Benjamin's than she know what to do with. Her skills are paying the bills. Everything is going good her services are very much in demand, until she gets a mysterious caller who wants to hire Lisette and is not taking no as in option or bad things will start to happen. The question is will Lisette take heed to these warnings? Or will she get what she deserves. Home Wrecker had a lot of sex appeal. I loved Lisette's character she was in control, it was either her way or no way. This book was a good read that will capture your attention right from the beginning. It was crazy, sexy, cool.

I had the opportunity to read the advance copy. This book is by far, Dwayne Joseph's best work to date! You'll be hard pressed to find a book with a storyline like this one. It was intense, dramatic, and sexy. Lisette is a character you won't soon forget.
