"Living well is the the best revenge..."

Well, maybe. But when it came to a woman scorned--not to mention two women scorned--maybe revenge was the best revenge. Thus when Joan Hoffman and Liz Savoie, both systematically dumped by the men they thought they loved, worked out side by side at the gym one fine day, they formulated a plan. A club, if you will. Why not go after ea

This is a perfect example of why I don’t DNF a book. I started out hating it but liked the second half.

I have no idea why I own this book because the premise does not appeal to me. During the first half of the book I disliked Joan, 46, and Liz, 39. I had a hard time understanding why they would agree to seduce each other’s ex-husbands away from their current wife/girlfriend. This was supposed to punish the men but they didn’t seem to care that it would also hurt the other women. I had

The Payback Club is expertly crafted by an apparent master storyteller. It kept me turning the pages long after I decided there were other things I needed to be doing. The main characters are true to life and I found myself caring about them.

It started off very slow at the beginning. But in the middle it started getting better. The best part in the book that I liked the most was when the ladies got Dennis back and the way they did it was just gravy. The ladies had married some dogs and they was paying for it but at the end both of the husband got exactly what they deserved. This book remind you of the wives club. In all it wasn't an original thought.

Rexanne makes the switch from historical to contemporary romance seamlessly and with deceptive ease. I hesitated before buying it ('cause I have enough reality, thank you!), but there's a pleasant surprise lurking behind the stylish and eye-catching cover!

Nice read. Not very believable, but entertaining. Two women who got dumped by the husbands seek revenge on the men by seducing them away from the present women and dumping them. At least that's the way it starts out.

This book was okay. I read the whole book, but it was boring to me when I first started it. Picks up later.

Started off pretty good then just fizzled out. Ho hum
Simple, enjoyable read. A (very) small mystery included.
