A titillating, backstabbing look at what happens when three women’s lives intersect with the same objective: get that perfect man, no matter what.
On the outside, Aruba Dixon has a life other women envy: a beautiful home, her handsome husband, James, and a gorgeous son. Inside, Aruba knows the truth. When her husband quits his fifth job in seven months, she’s done. She thought that after ten years of marriage, there would be more to show for it. Aruba wants a better husband, and she has the perfect man in mind—her friend Victoria’s husband.
Victoria Faulk is a head-turning stunner—and she tells herself so every day. Between shopping, assigning tasks to her nanny, and making sure her daughter doesn’t smudge the walls of her million-dollar home, Victoria can’t find the time to have sex with her husband. But when he grows distant, Victoria backpedals to the good old days to regain his affection. Will it be too late?
Tawatha Gipson feels it’s high time she found a husband. So do her four children by four different men. Each time Tawatha thought she’d snagged a ring and a man, something goes wrong. When she spots James Dixon at the jobsite, she’s determined to have him by any means necessary.
As these women’s lives intersect and collide, they learn the grass is greener on the other side—but it isn’t always easy to hop the fence.
