I loved this book! I felt like I knew these women. Now I'm looking at all my friends with a new eye. :) The women's stories were great. I learned so much and was entertained at the same time. I'm sharing the book with my friends, and suggesting it to my book club as our next selection!

This book surprised, delighted, and fascinated me. It's a sneak peek into the lives of women who cheat. It's not about what you think it is! And these women prove that. Well researched and well written. No heavy $5 words to impress you. Just the reality of what the author found in her work. So impressed! I'm going to buy more as gifts for my friends
