"'If you don't get yourself out of this vehicle and into that motel room and screw that man, I'll go up in there and do it myself!'
I never expected my best friend to encourage me to have an affair. I always thought that she'd be the main person who would try and talk me out of it. Especially since she and my husband had been like brother and sister for most of their lives. But that was exactly what she was trying to do now. I knew this sister like I knew the back of my hand, so I knew she was not going to stop until I had stepped out of my panties, stretched out on my back, and opened my legs for a man who was not my husband. One of the reasons was because my girl was having an affair herself. I knew that if I got involved in one, she wouldn't feel so guilty.
I was still strapped into my seatbelt and I was in no hurry to unfasten it. 'I don't know if I'm ready to cheat on my husband,' I admitted. Despite the words of protest that tumbled out of my mouth and my reluctance, I was not going to reject Rhoda's orders. I just didn't want her to know just how eager I really was to jump into bed with another man."
-from the book, God Ain't Blind by Mary Monroe
New York Times bestselling author Mary Monroe brings back forever-friends Annette Goode Davis and Rhoda O’Toole in a gripping, unforgettable novel about life, love and what it takes to survive them both.
Annette’s had her share of hard knocks, yet always managed to get through, thanks to her best bud Rhoda. But when Annette’s marriage to Pee Wee starts falling apart for reasons even she doesn’t understand, she’s going to need more than a little girl talk to set things right again. She and Pee Wee haven’t had sex in what seems like years, and she suspects this is because he thinks she’s too fat and that he’s fallen for someone else. So she goes on a crash diet and gets a complete makeover, but still, he doesn’t seem to notice her. She’s ripe for the picking when sexy Louis Baines comes into her life. Sure, he’s a broke caterer, but she’s got plenty of money. And, apparently, plenty to share with him… Soon embroiled in a full-blown affair, Annette learns a shocking and terrible secret about her new lover, and she turns to the only person she knows she can trust. But it looks like not even Rhoda’s going to be able to help Annette glue back the pieces of her life as they crumble around her.

The book was..... okay umm I would still recommend it as a good read. Im glad annette is no longer wearing muumuu's. I really want to know who are those two women on the front cover on the book? lbvs.
Very slow starting out. It did pick up and it's just okay. I only red it because it's part of the sequel I started. I don't think Mary Monroe is a good writer.
I personally enjoyed all her books, to each it's own. keep up the good writing, I'm still a top fan...

Ms. Monroe has done it again this installment of the secret life of Rhonda and Annette was a great read. I read this book cover to cover was def. worth it. Whats done in the dark always comes to the light....
I admit it...I skipped a few chapters just to get to the end. It was just an okay read.
