ANOTHER MAN'S WIFE by Shonda Cheekes was a book full of romantic suspense.

We read about Yani Fenton, a good woman whose husband walked out on her and their two children after fifteen years without even turning back. Yani and the kids waited five years for his return, but never got the satisfaction of seeing him again.

In comes Alex Chance. He's a big shot business man who treats her like the ultimate Queen and they quickly fall in love and get married. But, just as it goes in real life, once you...more
I read half of this book and thought the main characters were just too perfect, inside and out, for me to enjoy seeing their lives end up happy. I am a hater. Oh well.

After I read a book I have a habit of going back to read reviews and comments to see if the average reader shared my overall thoughts. I’ve found for the most part that I am usually in sync with the average review. However, Another Man’s Wife found me in stark conflict with most of those who reviewed this book; similar to my experience with Jezebel by Jacquelin Thomas.

This was a great story even though it has been a few years since I read it I thoroughly enjoyed it to the end. I applaud the lead character Yanni for holding out so long after her husband abandoned her and their children. Awesome read
I'd like to actually give this one 3 1/2 stars. When Yani's husband disappears out of the blue, it takes her 5 years to finally decide he's dead and move on with her life. She meets Alex who she wants to spend the rest of her life with. Soon after Yani's "dead" husband appears ready to come back into her life. Will she make the right choice? I liked this book for the most part. The "grown folk" humor really made the book for me lol. A little fairy tale-like for me though.
It was a nice story. A bit unrealistic at times in my opinion, but I was eager to discover what would happen next...One reviewer stated that the focus seemed to be more on a secondary character than the primary one -- I agree to an extent that there was truth in that -- but it wasn't bad.
I did not even want to start to read it did not like the story line

It started off really slow, didnt really pick up until half way through. I found myself not wanting to put this book down.
This was a good book & kept me wanting to know what would happen next.

Little too romantic for my taste- not a bad book by any means though.
