The Other Woman
Genre: M/F, Modern Day Romance
Scarlett Smyth is such an expert at seduction, that she is even penning a book on it. When the shrewd and ambitious temptress lays eyes on Bradley Murdoch, she believes she has found her dream man. There is just one problem – Bradley is happily married to Rival. In an attempt to get close to Bradley, Scarlett befriends Rival, and creates a perfect opportunity to steal Bradley away from her.
Quiet and unassuming Rival Murdoch is happy to welcome the vivacious and friendly Scarlett into her family circle. But when she is betrayed by both Bradley and Scarlett, she decides, even though she lacks Scarlett’s genius IQ, not to turn the other cheek. In fact, she is determined to win back her husband, believing that he is simply mistaking lust for love.
As a result, a not so silent war is erupts between a seething wife and mistress who is not used to losing.
Eve Rabi’s latest romantic thriller is riveting drama of betrayal, lust and deception that will keep you turning pages and leave you begging for more.
Meet Rival and Scarlett. They used to be best friends, until Scarlett stole Rival’s husband. But unlike most wives, Rival refuses to turn the other cheek.
RIVAL MURDOCH (The Wife) Not only did Scarlett steal my husband, she also helped herself to my children, my friends and shattered all my dreams. She just fell into the life I took years to build, and is blissfully happy, while I have to start my life all over again. How can I not be angry and bitter?
These woman who steal husbands, destroy families and shatter dreams, why isn’t society doing something about it? Why are we allowing them to get away with it?
People say, “Move on. Living well is the best revenge.”
I don’t agree. I want revenge. It’s all I can think about.
SCARLETT SMYTH (The Mistress) If Rival didn’t want to lose Bradley to me, she should have tried harder to be a better wife. She could have started off by losing weight. I mean, she was married to a handsome and charismatic man who was going to be Australia’s next Prime Minister, and she was a size twelve! Twelve. That’s a whopping size forty-two in Italy and a giant eight in the U.S.! A body for a Dove commercial.
How dare she? How dare she have the arrogance to value bread and pasta and rice and noodles and potatoes and chocolate mousse over someone like Bradley Murdoch?
I mean, look at Posh – she’s a size zero. Why? Because she appreciates David. She does not in any way jeopardize her position as Almost Royalty.
And Angelina, clearly she forgoes carbs because those hip bones, they could put out Brad’s eyes, let me tell you. These women, they sacrifice to keep their men, to keep away predators like me and that’s how it ought to be.
I’m a size six, by the way. That would make me a four in the U.S., a five in Japan, a two in Canada, a four in the UK and a mere thirty-two in Italy, making me an extra-small, everywhere in the world, get it? It’s important that you do, because I work hard at my centerfold figure and I do believe I deserve recognition for it.
