Overview

Men and women test the limits of love and devotion in this sexy and suspensful first novel, which evokes the emotional honesty and moral complexity of real life.
Newcomer Shonda Cheekes makes her contemporary debut in a hip, wonderfully wise story about letting go and moving on.
When Yani Fenton married Jarrin Miller, she thought it would last forever. But five years ago, her husband of fifteen years walked out on his family without a backward glance. Since then, Yani and her two children have played a waiting game, certain that he is coming back. Now, with the help of her friends and her sister Asia, Yani is finally over her "love hangover" and ready to get on with her life. At a party, she meets Alex Chance, a prominent New York businessman who's looking for a relationship with a woman who isn't out for everything she can get. Their powerful attraction leads to a whirlwind courtship and a fairy-tale like wedding. But their happy ending is threatened by Jarrin's sudden reappearance, which forces Yani to face the truth about her marriage — and the life-altering choice she will have to make as another man's wife.
With generous helpings of affection, humor, and romantic suspense, Shonda Cheekes has created a story that crackles with wit and the rifs and rhythms of modern life. Alternating between the first-person outlooks of Yani and Alex, Another Man's Wife captivates readers with a sassy tale of brothers and sisters on the move andsearching for love and fulfillment. Imbuded with the author's fresh, unique voice, it is a provocative and seductive look at relationships in the twenty-first century.

This is a must read book! I started this book on Friday and completed it on Sunday. I would have finished it on Saturday if I didn't have other obligations to meet. This book was fast moving. The story line was refreshing. There comes a time in a woman's life when she must choose...

Another Man's Wife was an excellent easy read. I finished reading this book in 3 days. This book was hard to put down once you pick it up. I was upset with how Yani handled her relationship with Jarrin, but who knows how one would act if the same thing happen to them. My book club enjoyed discussion this book as well. Keep up the good work!

I loved this novel, it was like the black version of the Cinderella story. It made me mad, it made me cry, it made me sad, and it made me happy. Any book that gets all the human emotions to show is THUMBS UP! Hats off to you Ms. Shonda Cheekes, I can't wait until your next novel comes out.

This is a wonderful story about love, sisterhood, and friendship. It also makes you ponder on the question of when should you let go. While I know I would have never waited as long as the character did, I do understand her reasons. But can someone send me my Alex Chance? I know he's out there somewhere. Good writing Ms. Cheekes. Can't wait for the next one. This book is a must read and I've suggested it to all of my friends!
