My thoughts ya’ll:

About 3 years ago, I stumbled across this story called Gringa by an author named Eve Rabi. It seemed like an interesting storyline so I  read it. Eve’s writing made me devour Gringa. I literally read all of her other books available at the time in a week. Cooking and showering went to the back burner and acknowledging my husband was an after thought. Then I find out about this new book, The Other Woman. I of course binge read it in a few days.

Fast forward to now, and I have the privilege of having Eve follow me on my social media platforms. She tells me she wants a blogger’s review on The Other Woman. It had been several years since I had read it, so in order to give an honest review, I had to reread it (Not that I need an excuse to read a really good book).This is what I thought…the second time around.

My Review:

It’s un-putdownable. I do not remember being so anxious and disgusted with the villainess the last time I read this book. Eve Rabi knows how to make you hate or love a character and you for sure will hate…I mean hate Scarlett. She’s narcissistic, selfish, self centered, and a cold calculating biotch, yet also kind of entertaining and pretty funny…although I hate to admit it. The terrible thing is you know there are women out there just like her that will stop at nothing to get what they want. But I digress, Scarlett is so well written, you have steam coming out of your ears. The lengths she goes to to get Bradley are disgusting and intriguing all at the same time.

That’s just the first part of the book though. The woman she wrongs finally gets some payback. You’re cheering for Rival the entire time. All of Eve’s character’s are so well developed. The reason I gave the book a 4.5 instead of a 5 is because the cheating scenes made my stomach churn. You’re hoping that Bradley wakes up and smells the coffee, but he doesn’t and it can be hard to read at times. DO NOT let that deter you. The Other Woman is clever, funny, heart wrenching, and you absolutely cannot put it down. You will binge and you will immediately want  to read the rest of Eve’s books. Like Derailed, the sequel to The Other Woman. So go on, prepare yourself to read this psychological thriller of love and the other woman.

Why you should read it:

As I said before, The Other Woman is un-putdownable. You want to read more and more and faster and faster the further into the book you get. The funny and fast paced writing makes you devour the pages.

Want to learn about Arena and Bear, Ritchie and what happened between he and Liefie, or the finale to The Other Woman? Read the books in this order: Payback, One Way or Another, My Wife’s Lil Secret, The Other Woman, then Derailed. Even if you read The Other Woman first, you won’t be lost.  I’ve read all of them and they are all awesome and just as riveting.

About the Author:

Australia is where Eve resides although she was born in South Africa. She’s written 26 books and counting. They’re all romantic suspenses and damn good if I do say so myself. The heroines are always strong and determined and the heros are always sexy.If you want to know more about her or her psychological thrillers head on over to her page at https://everabi.wordpress.com.

ENTRAPMENT

“Infidelity – it isn’t what you think”

My thoughts ya’ll:

Aleatha is one of my all time favorite authors. On Aleatha’s twitter page it asks “Have you been Aleatha’d?” All I can say is I seem to forget every time that I have been until I’m blown away by another of her intriguing and thrilling stories. She knows how to make the back of my knees sweat! I had to take anxiety breaks, because the suspense of the story was just too much at times.

I knew going in that it was going to be a cliffhanger and did my girl leaving me hanging! Her style of writing is riveting to say the least. You literally dream about going back to read some more. I stayed up reading until midnight and it took me about 30 minutes to come down just a little from my book hangover so that I could close my eyes and sleep. My mind is still racing with possibilities and questions as to how this is going to pan out.

Entrapment is the continuation of Alex and Nox’s love story. Alex is coerced into following “the rules” and going with her stepdad, Alton, under the assumption that her coming easily will allow her access to her sick mother. Now I’m going to stop here and say that if you haven’t read the previous three books, you’ll get a good story but you’ll probably be pretty lost. Through the twists and turns of the story, you find out just how f-ed up her Grandfather’s will is and the lengths her stepfather will go to to keep his fortune. There are so many pieces to the Infidelity puzzle, and I cannot wait until January 17 to come so I can put the pieces together.

My Review:

Like Aleatha’s other books, it’s written from several different character’s points of view. She ensures that you as the reader know some of the puzzle just like the characters, but you’re still scrambling to find solid ground and make sense of everything when you get another piece. I can’t tell you how many times I gasped out loud while reading this book. The plot just keeps thickening the more you read.

Is Alex willing to pay the price to save it all? She is, but you find it’s on her own terms, which creates the angst and intrigue that makes you want to read as quickly as possible to find out just how she’ll do it. Or if she even is able to. She’s had to deal with expectations and rules all of her life and she’s used to behaving one way and seething with fury on the inside. Alex is better than me because I would have cut someone by then!

Aleatha’s writing is magnificent and that’s not a word I use on a regular basis or at all really. That’s just how amazing her storytelling ability is.

Why you should read it:

If you have not read this author, beware. You will not do laundry, you will not eat or drink, you will not notice your husband talking to you because she has you from the first word and will not let go! Seriously, you may not even go to the bathroom…just sayin. So clear your schedule and prepare your mind because you’ll need to to survive the fourth book of the Infidelity series.

About the Author:

Aleatha live in Indiana. She’s married to her high school sweetheart and has 3 children. She’s the brilliant author of not only the Infidelity series, but the Consequences Series (which I rave about here) and The Light Series.
