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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.
Lang's libido is as insatiable as a river is long, and one her husband cannot keep up with. So Lang begins a sexless affair with a younger man, and the affair quickly evolves from emotional to physical. Lang has no desires to stop, not even after her best friend finds out. This affair causes a wedge between them, and Aminah must choose where her loyalties lie and try to keep her family intact and maintain her self-respect in her celebrity-made marriage. In the end, their friendship and their marriages will be put to the test.
I absolutely enjoyed The Cheating Curve by Paula T. Renfroe and recommend it as a read for everyone. The book explores the adult aspect of cheating, and it allows the reader to see both sides of the spectrum with a spin. Do we have different standards for men than women? Does status, money, who you are or your age play a part in the dynamics of cheating? I dare you to read the book and find out what Aminah, Lang and their host of family and friends have to say.
