My husband was the last man in town that the people in our close-knit circle of friends expected to have an affair. Why he didn’t cheat was as much of a mystery to me as it was to them. When I mentioned to one of my female friends that I was married to a man who didn’t cheat, her only question was, “What’s wrong with him?”
It saddened me to hear that some people thought that there was something wrong with a man who didn’t cheat on his wife.
“There is nothing wrong with my husband. He’s as normal as any other man,” I told that friend.
“Ha! If that’s the case, he’s not normal,” that friend told me.
Maybe she was right. If it was normal for a man to cheat, then Pee Wee was not normal.
Despite the fact that I had cheated on my husband just a few months ago (yes, I’d cheated, but I’ll get to that later) and had accused him of being unfaithful on numerous occasions, I knew in my heart that he had not slept with another woman since he married me. However, one of my concerns was the other women who were dying to get their hands on him.
“If you ever break up with Pee Wee, send him to me,” another female friend had jokingly suggested. “He’s perfect.”
When I told my mother what my friend had said, she told me, “Girl, as brazen and desperate as women are these days, I’d be worried if I were you.”
Even after my mother’s comment, I didn’t worry or complain because I felt secure and comfortable. Looking back on it now, I realize I was too comfortable. That was my first mistake. I had a ringside seat in the eye of a major hurricane, but I was so comfortable I didn’t realize that until it was too late.

Bestselling author Mary Monroe serves up a compelling installment of her acclaimed “God” series. Will beloved lifelong friends Annette Goode Davie and Rhoda Nelson-O’Toole finally get a little peace and sanity in their lives? Or is God just not through testing them yet?
At the end of God Don’t Play, Annette and her husband, Pee Wee, came back together, vowing to pick up the pieces of their marriage after her affair. Annette goes out of her way to keep Pee Wee happy, but it never seems to be enough. Rhoda, embroiled in her own marital mess, is quick to point out that Annette got herself into this situation—and now she has to be patient until Pee Wee forgives her. But time may be running out. Unable to forgive, Pee Wee leaves Annette and moves in with her friend, Elizabeth. And now their 11-year-old daughter, Charlotte, is punishing them both by hanging out with the wrong crowd. If there’s one thing that matters to Annette, it’s her family and friends; and she isn’t about to let it all fall apart without a fight. But she also knows she must prepare for the worst—because one lesson she’s learned all too well is that when life kicks you in the teeth, you have to come out swinging.

It is a really good read. I say the book is ok because the beginning starts off with a bang, but the middle of the book is a real BORE. The ending picks back up. Overall I still liked it..... P.s Pee-wee's my dude but REALLY PEE-WEE???? little leg lizzy ???? lmbo........
I've purchased every book that Mary Monroe has written and I mean the ENTIRE collection and I've never been disappointed. I love reading her books and each one of them has been a page turner. The only book I haven't read was Mama Ruby which I will be ordering. So this comment is for ALL of the books she has written and they are certainly page turners, full of excitement and anticipation. I can't wait to read the "Upper Room" which is a sequel to Mama Ruby!! Keep up the excellent work Mary!!!!
I found mama ruby to be inviting it kept me wanting to keep reading to see what these young ladies were up to and there eventure turns out. I recomend this book to be read.
just ok.. wouldnt read again but i read the other books to the series
I loved the first God doesn't like ugly, but having to reread the details of the first two books in every book dulls me. Let's pick it up. Red Light Wives was excellent and I loved Mama Ruby and the Upper Room. Mary keep them coming.
