Robert T. Germaux – The Backup Husband


Samantha is ultra sexy – the epitome of sex appeal.  This point is emphasized over and over again.  The attractiveness of her husband and his best friend are almost equally emphasized.  So, three incredibly attractive people – something was bound to go awry.

There is a very long build up in the tension.  Would it end in menagerie or an affaire?  The anticipation of this answer kept me turning the pages quickly.  However, the fact that the author ya-da, ya-da, ya-da’d all of the sex scenes should have been a clear indicator.

I really liked how the external characters influenced the perceptions of the main characters at all points during the plot.  I thought it was interesting how outsiders’ comments impacted the main characters’  actions.

In the end, literally, the set-up, timeliness, and verbosity of the apology scene was outstanding.

  1. Thanks for the review, Liz Ellyn, and thanks also for contacting me personally with the query about a possible sequel. You motivated me to give it serious thought. If I do end up writing that sequel (“Steven’s Story” perhaps?), you’ll definitely get a shout-out in my acknowledgements. Best of luck with your own writing and with this really cool blog. You’re an author’s dream!
