An old party girl turned domestic diva, infuriated by her husband's cheating--and his holier-than-thou, tree-hugging, no-tits and no-hips girlfriend--inflicts her wrath by training a local boy in the fine art of seduction. She and her new boy toy turned love god, start a gigolo business as a distraction for the neglected and mistreated housewives of Alabaster Cove.

Deek Goes Deep
In a nutshell, it's about screwing up. Lindsey compromised her principles and force herself into being something she's not. In college, she had a scare and crammed herself into a life of domestication. Years later, she's stuck in a smelly armpit of a marriage and a life that's foreign and dismal. But when she finds out her husband is a cheater and liar, she and her inner, long-dormant party animal load the cannons and battens down the hatches. Together, they concoct a plan to revenge themselves out of the cesspool of their existence and create a new throne from which to plant her royal tush and rule the town.

What isn't it about? Sex! There is a little of course, because, well, it's about an angry and betrayed party girl and her boy toy. But if you're looking for long descriptions of people's kibbles and bits and how they sizzle and sauté them into a goulash of passion and uninhibited fornication, then you'd better look for a different blend of Chex Mix, cause, brother, this ain't it. 

A new twist on the cheating husband theme. Lindsey finds herself taking a stand and creating a most unusual way to not only get back at him but provide a means of financial support for herself. 

Honestly I loved how she reacted to finding the proof on her cheating husband and her reaction was perfect. It made one want to cheer and say "So there! Take that!". Her creative solution to lack of money, well that is a most unusual way to take care of oneself. 

A part of me balked at her boy toy and at first my mind was resistant to the storyline but as I read further into story the author created interest by the introduction of her girlfriends and showing the point of view of the boy toy which changed my mind about his involvement.

This book pace is steady and though the theme may not be for all people I give it 4 STARS.

Check out Deek Rhew's Interview by The Writer's Inkwell

Deek lives in a rainy pocket in the Pacific Northwest with the stunning YA author bride, Erin Rhew, and their writing assistant, a fat tabby named Trinity. They enjoy lingering in the mornings, and often late into the night, caught up Erin’s fantastic fantasy worlds of noble princes and knights and entwined in Deek’s dark underworld of the FBI and drug lords.

He and Erin love to share books by reading aloud to one another. In addition, they enjoy spending time with friends, running, boxing, lifting weights, and exploring the little town--with antique shops and bakeries--they call home.
