Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Langston Rogers and Aminah Anderson have been best friends and usually share everything with one another. That is, until Langston has a secret that she is uneasy about and unwilling to share. Her affair is the one detail that she has been keeping from her best friend while Aminah is struggling with her husband’s infidelity. Aminah thought Langston understood how hurtful and devastating living with her husband’s cheating has been and would never engage in such deceitful behavior. In spite of the devotion that Langston’s husband showers on her, she needs more. Aminah does not understand her friend’s behavior, but it does lead her to finally confront her husband about his behavior. Both women put forth great effort to maintain their marriages and their friendship while struggling to keep their families intact. This steamy and engaging plot explores sex, family, parenting, and infidelity in a story that is realistic and entertaining. --Lillian Lewis

Format: Paperback
The Cheating Curve by Paula T. Renfroe is an entertaining and extremely frank look at cheating within marriage. The novel also tells the story from the perspective of both men and women and allows the reader to make his or her own decision about how they view what is occurring.

Aminah Anderson has been married to `Fame' Anderson since she graduated from college. He owns a music production company and she is a stay-at-home mom. In their early thirties they have all that money could buy, however, Fame allows women to provide sexual favors for him. He does not consider it as cheating and Aminah has looked the other way for years. But, a series of radio references about her husband is causing her to rethink her position. Will she continue to live the way she has or will she decide she deserves better?
Langston `Lang' Rogers is Aminah's best friend of over 25 years and she tells her everything. Well, almost everything. She has not told Aminah that she is cheating on Sean, her husband of four years, and that she will probably never have the baby that Sean craves. Lang is convinced that Aminah would not understand and she is sure she can have her cake and eat it too. But can she and what will she do if her best friend does not support her?

Ms. Renfroe did a wonderful job of bringing us into the lives of Aminah and Lang and exposing us to the reasons that married people feel it is okay to cheat. I read through the book in one setting because I loved the voice of the author and the way she tackled a subject that has been written about many times. Nothing was tied up in a pretty little package and the reader was left to decide how they felt about the choices the characters made. The Cheating Curve was literary entertainment, pure and simple. I recommend it to all who love a page-turning, sometimes steamy contemporary novel.

The book was provided by the publisher for review purposes.

Best friends since elementary school; Aminah and Lang find themselves at a cross road of life. Aminah's value and ideas of infidelity differ so much from Langs. Aminah believes in "til death do us part", committment and monogamy. Meanwhile Lang believes she should have it all, the affair, her husband and her great career. The two agree to continue to love one another and leave the behavior. Outstanding storyline, fantastic research and knowledge on the issues of infidelity, marriage and monogamy.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Cheating Curve as it was well written and very entertaining. Throughout the novel, various characters depict the perils and/or the excitement of cheating as witnessed through the lives of two best friends, Lang and Aminah. I constantly found myself turning the page looking for what was next.

I loved this book by Paula Renfroe. Those burning questions about the "why's" and "how's" of infidelity were all answered in an unbiased way by this very talented female author. It revealed two-sides of cheating; cheating on a spouse and being cheated on, and how everyone handles their vows differently.
I loved the references to pop culture, restaurants, music, streets, landmarks. I live in NYC and was very familiar with the air Aminah and Lang breathed in every step of the way. For out-of-staters, this books descriptions would leave you longing for a visit!
Happy Read and Congratulations to the Author!

Wow! Loved how the author made you get into the characters. Really made you look at the way the relationships were handled. This book reminds me of what you would explain to one of your friends with the cheating gene. However as a friend you explain the consequences but it does not sink in until after the person is caught. I really did enjoy the book looking forward to her next novel.
