What would you do if you found out your friend was having an affair with your other friend’s husband? One woman must navigate love, marriage, cheating, and lies in this steamy, drama-fueled novel from bestselling authors Pat Tucker and Earl Sewell.
When Ava’s childhood friend, the sexy Bailey Jones, begins a hot and torrid affair with a married man, Ava reluctantly keeps Bailey’s secret. She convinces herself that it’s really none of her business since she doesn’t know the cheating man or his poor unsuspecting wife. But when Ava’s best friend, Sylvia Monroe, confides in her, things get a lot more complicated.
Easygoing Sylvia’s mantra has always been what she doesn’t know won’t hurt her—until she’s faced with the possibility that her husband, Jayden, may be cheating. When Sylvia tells Ava, she is blown away by the revelation that Jayden is none other than Bailey’s mystery man!
Ava is stuck and unsure about what to do—and besides, she’s doing all she can to keep her own marriage on track. Should Ava tell Sylvia what she knows or confront Jayden herself? Either way, Ava’s loyalty to both friends is about to be tested and by the time it’s all over, four lives will forever be changed.
