The two strangers enjoy a wicked interlude that is the perfect end to his year-long celibacy. Perfect, except for the fact that the woman is twice his age. Oh, and she’s also his fiancée’s Aunt Alicia! When Dallas’ fiancée, Tori, recovers from her pain, she makes him a shocking offer: if he goes through with their upcoming wedding, she’ll still allow him to be with the one woman he now can’t seem to do without. Everyone will get a little of what they want, but maybe a whole lot of what they don’t want
Details of the trio’s love life play out in the tabloids and on talk shows, making Dallas the center of an NBA scandal. Tori’s co-workers, family, and friends alike take her to task for not shoving Dallas—and his million dollar bank accounts—out the door. Alicia disappears after a particularly brutal exchange that leaves her hurt beyond measure.
Months later, when Dallas finds her he finally makes the choice and puts an end to the chaos to be with the one woman he truly loves. Then Tori comes back on the scene and makes life even more difficult when she tries to uncover a secret that will change their lives forever.
Bursting with originality and controversy, author Naleighna Kai has created a provocative, and at times heartwarming tale about an age-old problem that will strike a chord with all women.
Every Woman Needs a Wife is the hilarious, but thought-provoking story of a wife who does the "unthinkable." Strolling in on Vernon and his mistress one night, Brandi Spencer insists that the new woman in his life come home and earn her keep the honest way -- on her feet helping the wife clean the house, keep the children and pay the bills, instead of laying on her back servicing the husband.
Tanya Kaufman has had one shock too many -- one minute she's a fiancée, the next she finds out she's been the mistress all along. When Tanya shows up during the surprise anniversary party to take Brandi up on her offer, the women seize the opportunity to teach Vernon that infidelity will no longer come at the expense of the women's time, money, and happiness. Vernon fights back by launching a high-profile court battle that doesn't have a thing to do with splitting the money, keeping the house, or visitation rights.
Had any married couple ever fought for custody of...the mistress?
"Naleighna Kai once again brings you deep, heartfelt emotion, beautifully crafted prose, and a dose of belly-laughing humor that is not to be missed in The Pleasure's All Mine!" L.A. Banks, New York Times Bestselling author
