Wow, what a shame.

This looks to be a very interesting read. The narrator's voice is intimate and real - nothing shy or coy or fake about it. The story line seems believable. The subject matter is hot. The characters develop in unexpected yet internally consistent ways...

... at least I think so...

The trouble is, it looks like the printer really screwed up.

Ever get a Word doc from someone at the office - a doc they're in the middle of editing? Ever notice what happens if they haven't accepted all the edits yet or haven't set the doc to show final markups? Ever try printing that doc?

This book looks like a case study in why you need to *preview* before you print.

There are bizarre editing errors in every paragraph, stuff like,

"I made it a point to update
Tthe ad we had placed, t, I made a point o update."

Yes, that line break is in there. The book is littered with examples like this. Not one or two: we're talking dozens per page. I've tried but after a couple pages I swear I started getting a headache. And where the action is hottest the problems are the worst. Clearly the author spent a lot of time and effort to get the scenes just right - and you can see every single edit!

I would love to finish this book. Heck, I'd like the start this book! It looks fantastic. But until the printing is corrected, it's unreadable.

Such a shame.

It seems to me that the author missed something very important in his relationship wit his hot wife.
He was constantly getting his "wife" new lovers, and she never commented.
...but when she finally wanted someone when she finally expresses a desire of her own ....he balked BIG TIME...
even to the point of lying to her about him and his availability.
It made me realize that he was solely in it for what
he wanted her to experience and her desires (when not in sync with his own) were
not to be tolerated. He came across very short-sighted and selfish if you ask me. He seemed more interested
in controlling what he saw her do, rather than let her have what she enjoyed.
It was either my way or the highway...I thought cuckolds were obedient to the needs and wants of the woman
and her lover(s).
He was too rigid to narrow in vision to want to see her happy in how she wanted to experience lovers.

A good lesson for all of us....be careful what you want for someone else...in case they want it slightly differently. Don't
force feed happiness to someone.

Overall this was an exciting piece of reading. Understand g that experiences vary I would definitely recommend it to my friends. Enjoyed reading what it's like for a hub. Being a (bull) in the lifestyle you seldom hear about what happens to the marital dynamics or even who the experience is really for. In this book the other seemed to really want the encounters to continue even though she (the wife) had reservations. What was also refreshing was the fact that they chose love and family over the lifestyle. At the end of the night all you have is family. That's the only downfall of being a (Bull). The hub goes home with the toy.

The writing and story telling are not great, but they are OK. I do commend the writer on the effort that it took to write this story which chronicles many episodes over several years. It did seem that this could be a true story, or at least based on some actual events. One thing that seems very different about this story is that there are more disappointing situations for the couple than mutually pleasing situations. Maybe that is closer to reality. I am glad that the marriage apparently survived.

As an author of my own cuckold work - From Housewife to Cuckoldress: How I Took Sexual Control of a Marriage in Crisis - as well as a practitioner of open relationships of many kinds, I read Derrin's book with great interest and perhaps high standards. I was not disappointed. What impressed me the most about this book? It was unflinching in its honesty about sexual incompatibilities/frustration, how cuckolding can help, but also the new dilemmas it can pose. Most of all, it was personal, reading not like the fantasies you read sometimes on the message boards but the real twists and turns in the road. To me, that made the sex scenes in the book more erotic and gave the book an electricity you often don't get from this type of fiction. Perhaps the only disappointment is wanting to know where the story goes next. I get the sense there are chapters not yet written - in other words - maybe someday we will get a true to life sequel. In the meantime I'll look out for Derrin's other works.

This is a real story that you can read, get involved and be hot and bothered. It touches all the erotic buttons but also creates other tensions as well.
The story is realistic but fun to read until the end.
I could relate to the husband and also fantasize about his wife

I did enjoy it. It is crazy to think of a man looking up how to hook his wife up with men. I think I prefer the genre that is more of oops I did not mean to go all the way, but look at the can of worms I opened up in my heart. It feels good to feel bad type of writing. Did not feel this way in Derrin's writing. Hard to argue about it though, for it is supposed to be a real story.
