    Interesting, maddening, enraging

    Thought the premise was interesting. It just enraged me, and I like this genre. I think both husbands and wives should read the first story together and discuss their reactions.

    What do you mean, bad?

    Despite all other reviews, I, personally, loved this little collection. It helps if people read EVERYTHING (including those silly little author's notes). I didn't go into this read with any expectations, so I ended up pleased. My husband and I still talk about and refer to parts of at least two of the three stories fairly often. It obviously isn't for everyone, but for free, what do you have to lose? The work is much longer than 20 pages.

    Weird

    I read this despite what the other reviews said. It locks your attention, but not for the right reasons. I though the third story was by far the worst. I kept thinking can this get any creepy or weirder and it did. Thought maybe the stories would be a little more erotic but was disappoint on all levels.

    Rediculous, stupid, horrible

    Even though the first 2 stories were rediculous, the third was downright disgusting. A sixteen year old involved in willing rape? Eww. Really? I kept reading thinking it would improve, no hoping, it would improve... and it never did. It was like a Law and Order SVU episode. Not sexy, like an accident you can't look away from, couldn't stop reading. DO NOT BOTHER!

    Three highly original stories.

    The only problem is that the first and last are just bizarre beyond reckoning and don't really fit the genre. Nothing sexy at all with two of the three novellas. I'm a big Ashley Zacharias fan, but the last of the three stories definitely left a bad taste. A Lady Pays Her Penalties is FANTASTIC. Hopefully her next novel won't be such a... departure.

    Worst book ever!

    If I had paid for this book I would be MAD! I deleted it and will NOT read this author again. Horrible!!! Especially the last one. I would give a negative rating if I could.

    Not your Mother's Love Story

    I did not expect a love story, but I can say that I loved the authors work. Three very different stories about women. As a reader I want to hear the story the author tells. I am a reader enjoy slipping into a world they’ve created, allowing the story to fall around me. These stories were very powerful and dark, and to some controversial. I enjoyed reading them all and these will stay in my head a very long time. I applaud the creative hand of the author.

    .......

    It was a good book...but that last one kinda shook me. The first one made me mad, the second one was my favorite, and the third one just left me speechless.

    ......Interesting read!

    Very different reads which kept me wondering what could possibly be next! Story lines were definitely unique and slight controversial, to say the least. However, i enjoyed the stories and applaud the creative hand of the author.

    Definitely worth the read.

    This book is unique. It consists of three stories striving to relay a moral. The stories themselves are very imaginative and keep the reader wanting more.

    Upon first selecting the book, I expected to read about wives in the military (either serving themselves or with husbands who served), and how military life affected their romantic relationships. I was definitely mistaken. These stories center around sexual situations, and while they can be explicit don't seem to be written to arouse sexual desire, rather awareness of the power that can be wielded by sex and sexuality.
