I have never written a review before, but I felt like I just had to say something about this book. It was just plain awful. The writing was amatuerish and if this was actually based on a true story, the people involved were both selfish and trifling. I found the wife to be highly hypocritical of finding out about her husband's sexual tendencies considering the things that she was into.

The story did not flow well and the writer seemed to jump back and forth, not following any particular timeline. The dialogue was laughable and unbelievable. I only wish that it was possible to give something less than one star.

If you don't mind bad writing and a ridiculous plot, then by all means by this book. Otherwise, save your money.

I wish someone had warned me.

This goofy broad is actually suing the maker of Brokeback Mountain, citing that they copied scenes from her book. Her book was written in what, 2005? Brokeback was written in 2000. If she read the book she would realize that the movie is taken almost strictly from the book, from scene to dialogue. If her book mirrors the movie (instead of the other way around) perhaps she'll soon find herself on the other end of a law suit. This woman is pathetic.

I just completed reading "My Husband is on the Down Low ... And I Know About it". I was absolutely blown away. The way the author approached such a volatile subject indicates that she is both talented and gifted. She definitely challenged my male testosterone driven beliefs.

I sincerely believe that this is truly a "must read" book for all who are in relationships, those who have open relationships, those who are homophobic, those who are sexually adventurous, those who are tolerant, those who don't understand the complexities of nature, sexuality and fidelity, those who have preconceived notions on what is okay and what is not okay in the bedroom, those who just want a good read, those who are curious, those who want a second opinion and of course those who have found themselves in relationship situations where the obvious answers were not there. This book took me on a relationship roller coaster that caused me to hold because of the intrigue.

Although society of today is more tolerant than in yester year, accepting or being tolerant on the issues of homosexuality has its limits. Society will judge a man on many fronts, his income, his education, his profession, his station in life, etc. All of these items are often forgiven when they don't meet with societal norms. The author of My Husband... gives us a different perspective. She takes you to point that makes you ask yourself, "is measuring man's sexuality a good measuring stick for a man's humanity".

It will be a travesty if this book doesn't make the best sellers list. I say this not because of the obvious financial gain for the author but for society's sake at large. The messages that the author provides are thought provoking, soul search, exciting, cleaver, emotional, erotic, heart wrenching, painful and joyous. When I put the put down I had a completely different perspective on what I "thought I knew". Everyone else should have this same experience!

The "down low" phenomenon has hit the bookstores in droves - whether fact or fiction. Scott-Blanton gives the readers a bird's-eye view from a woman's perspective and through countless interviews she tells Annette's story. Annette has decided to come forward and let other women know that even with having blatant signs, how other factors can still cloud one's judgments.

Annette and James were high school sweethearts who turned into college lovers and eventually marry. The twist: Annette is bisexual but has not had an experience with another woman, yet. She decides her relationship should be based on trust and tells James about her desire. James openly accepts her sexuality and suggests they have her first experience together; they do and eventually venture into the "swinging" lifestyle.

Annette is enjoying the openness in her relationship with James, but feels something isn't right. While she is having her cake and eating it too, he is dealing with his own issues and secret attraction to men. Suddenly he starts making odd sexual requests. At first she's not comfortable with them, but eventually gives in to his desires. At some point, James's behavior becomes erratic so Annette decides to become a sleuth and does some investigating. Having a "need to know" mentality, she betrays the trust in their marriage and reads her husband's journal. What she reads almost becomes her demise; it's a double-edged sword. Annette struggles with what to do with the information she now has on her husband. Are you ready for her emotional roller-coaster ride? What would you do if you found out your mate is on the "down low?"

Question: Is he really "on the down low" if you know about it? Isn't the whole premise to being "down low" not knowing?

Through the novel MY HUSBAND'S ON THE DOWNLOW...AND I KNOW ABOUT IT, Janice Scott-Blanton takes readers into the lives of a couple and their very complicated relationship. James and Annette were high school sweethearts. Initially drawn to Annette's willingness to accept him unconditionally, James knew early on that they were meant to be. The couple thrived through the college years in spite of the fact that they attended different universities. Eventually, they had a child together and were subsequently married. Around that same time, James began his military career. Before the couple married, Annette felt compelled to share a nagging secret with her husband-to-be. This secret, her attraction to other women, would have a marked impact on the path their marriage would take.

James and Annette began to explore the swinging lifestyle, locating other women or couples through magazine ads and the Internet and inviting them into their bedroom. Annette couldn't be happier, she was married to the man of her dreams and he was open enough to not only accept her bi-sexuality, but also to explore and fulfill those sexual urges. All is well until she discovers that in spite of the open nature of their relationship, James is keeping secrets. It is then that she begins to question whether or not her husband is bi-sexual and whether their relationship will survive.

Janice Scott-Blanton has penned a novel, based on true events, that was both educational and entertaining. As someone unfamiliar with swinging and some of the alternative lifestyles presented in the book, I often found myself amazed as the story unfolded.
