Their Just Due,
This review is from: The Womanizers (Paperback)
Mike, Max and Ahmad are best buddies and are, by all accounts, womanizers. In Dwayne S. Joseph's THE WOMANIZERS, their escapades demonstrate why they have received this title.
Mike, a police officer, is married to the beautiful and loyal Mya but he is a player to the tenth degree. Mike's reasoning, there are too many women available to be loyal to one. Mike figures if he gives Mya everything her heart desires then his actions are justified. Max, who is married to Trina, is an up and coming record producer, or so he thinks, becomes involved with someone who is definitely taboo. Finally there is Ahmad who is married to Shay. Since the birth of their daughter six months ago, Ahmad and Shay have not had sex. Ahmad is a stand up type of guy and he cannot figure out why his wife will not have sex with him. Shay has her reasons, which she fails to share with her husband. Shay's dismissal of her husband sends him into the arms of another forbidden lover. Of the three, Ahmad is the one who preaches to the others about the errors of their ways, however Mike and Max are not into lectures and as long as Ahmad keeps his mouth shut no one will get hurt.
Take this ride with these characters as their friendship is tested over and over again by accusations, deceit and betrayal. Are their relationships and friendships broken beyond repair? In the end will each man and woman, for that matter, heed the lessons to be learned or will they continue with their wicked and selfish ways? The chapters are separated by the characters telling their side of the story, which allows us to hear directly from the individual and not from a narrator. Dwayne Joseph writes with candor, humor and straight up ruthlessness. He leaves no stone unturned as he tests the bonds of friendship between Mike, Max and Ahmad and ultimately their wives.
