From the first page:

Sharon, now Sharon filled me with lust, for about three months. Until her vapid shallowness turned me to stone. I conjugate for duty's sake.

Good book

Wow there was allot to take in from this book. I loved the characters and their story line. Wonderful author.

Ms Jordan exceeds herself as usual. This is one of the semi taboo issues that her books touches on. It was semi disconcerting to read, as I am not familiar with multiple wives. It also highlighted the underlying issues like jealousy and insecurity that these wives suffer, but it seems that this situation can work. Thought provoking.

I admit to skipping over this title several times when I was deciding which Jordan Silver book to buy next. Finally I gave it a chance. As long as you read it appreciating that it is just about a totally different culture and no one was forced or tricked into their situation, it is a good story focuses on envy, sharing and true love. Would have liked Sharon to have gotten more of a comeuppance though. Overall, although not a favourite of mine, it was still good.

I will honest from the deep of my heart...

First, I don't give rates for this book, I finished it with anger.

Second, the writing is actually okay, a little hard to understand, but the plot is well written.

Third, the ero thing... From 1 to 10, I give it 3.

Four, polygamy is a bull shit thing! I don't approve and don't appreciate it too. No offense for those who taught to amenable it.

So yeah I got headache from this book.

this was a good book but I had a hard time getting into it just because I do NOT share so the whole sister wives thing just doesn't work for me I know other people are happy with sharing but while I might loan you my car or money my hubby is off limits but that is just the way I am wired other than that this was another really god read ..

Probably the least of my favourites of JS's works but still enjoyed it. I wished I was more favourable toward Alana but she was likeable enough. I liked the progression of Cody throughout the story. Some scenes and storyline didn't make sense but I overlooked them and just stayed focused on the big picture.

I finished it, but barely. The writing is great...I was just so turned off by the I love first and second wife, but I love you more. What a crock...and then keeping the crazy #2 wife around still? No way!

Sorry, this one just isn't for me.

I enjoy reading Jordan. This one wasn't me kind of reading. I gave it a try. While it read good, the feeling of being his only love just wasn't there. I understand,understood, the concept of it being about a 3rd wife. But really, I just moved on.

Tja... 3,5*** afgerond naar 4... of toch maar 3? Twijfel.
Het onderwerp spreekt me erg aan, dus ik heb dit boek verslonden, maar uiteindelijk liet het een beetje een onbevredigd gevoel achter. Te weining diepgang, te mooi en te voorspelbaar. Dus... 3***

Love Jordan Silver!

While others have stated that they dislike Silver's works I for one love them. In fact I have not meet a Jordan Silver book that I don't love.

This story was most definitely interesting and never a dull moment. Not usually my cup of tea since I couldn't share but still ok I was hoping Alana could have him to herself. I loved these two
Different. Not a trope that I've liked and I've read a few books with this trope but heroine has two husbands. Only Jordan Silver can make an unlikeable trope a compelling read.
