Trying to figure out the rules of her first lesbian relationship is a difficult task for Callie Emerson. She and her girlfriend worked long and hard hammering out an agreement on fidelity. But Marina is having an even harder time keeping her end of the bargain.
Regan Manning and her lover had a very traditional relationship, built on a foundation of monogamy. Or so Regan thought. She is devastated when she learns the truth, and she is unwilling to forgive or forget.
Cheating partners brought Callie and Regan together. Not as lovers, but as friends supporting each other through tough times. They slowly realize that they could be more than friends. But each has to get past her insecurities before they can even try to make that leap.
It's not easy for either of them - the path to true love rarely is. But their friendship can be a bridge to commitment, if only they let it.

Callie Emerson and Regan Manning meet in an unusual manner. Their partners are having an affair and Callie volunteers to call Regan and explain why she shouldn't be upset. That improbable beginning leads to a friendship when both women realize the smartest thing they can do is to dump their girlfriends and they turn to each other for support. After all, who understands how each one feels better than they do? Friendship is what they agree on, but they find more and more about each other that is attractive. Misunderstandings and their own histories keep them dancing around each other and resisting a deeper relationship because neither one intends to be doublecrossed again. This story is full of about as many unbelievable situations as is probably possible. A number of incidents just don't make sense. Situation after situation has these women are all over the emotional map and it's difficult to follow where they're going to end up next in the story. The major problem with the story is that neither main character is terribly appealing, though Regan is perhaps more understandable than Callie. Sometimes the feeling is that someone needs to grab one or both of these women and give them a good shaking to force some sense into their heads. The story also drags on for too long. Add to that the misspellings and incorrect character references and the book becomes very frustrating. Susan Meagher's books are very popular with many readers. She's known for providing long romances that allow the reader to really immerse herself in the story. Doublecrossed, unfortunately, doesn't come up to that standard. The story is just OK and sometimes verges on plain irritating.
