Linda Boyd
My first book by this author. I ran across the audio version of this book at the library and the title sounded interesting. The book is not as scandalous as you may think, but to me it is a little far fetched. I can't see sisters doing that to each other, but the story line did make for an interesting story. Believe it or not there is a message in this book, and I suggest that you check it out.
The Urban Book Source
My Sister’s Ex by Cydney Rax, despite its suggestive cover and title, is actually a novel with aspirations. Not nearly as overtly scandalous as one would expect from the title and cover art, My Sister’s Ex tells the story of half-sisters, Rachel Merrell and Marlene Draper. The book picks up at the point where Rachel discovers that her sister has started an affair with her ex-fiancé, Jeffrey Williams. Rachel is understandably upset over the situation and, as one might expect, drama ensues.

I too received a promotional copy of this book and was asked to read and review it. It's not a great book, but it's readable IF you like this genre. Rachel and Marlene's reactions and emotions don't seem to go through a logical progression given the circumstances. The urban vernacular is awkward. I found the development of the complex relationships of Rachel and Marlene's parents to be confusing.

Reviewing the list of Ms. Rax's other titles, I get the impression these books are merely fantasies

Another strange read. This is what I get for roaming the shelves and selecting based on the cover. I was engaged listening to this read on a 16 hour road trip. Strange, strange, strange plot.
Being an only child I could not fathom the situation in this book. The writing was amazing but this whole thing was a little far fetched to me and... I didnt care for the ending.

Now, this has some twist and turns I didn't see coming. It was a good read. The spiritual parts were solid too.

Shelves: audio
The title says it all..but what was even more insane than crossing that line with your sister's ex was the sister's living together and openly discussing the relationship. I found that a little disturbing and couldn't fathom sisters actually being able to share a roof when one is dating the ex-fiancée of the other and it being a recent breakup. It was an okay read, but the audacity of the older sister really blew me. I kept thinking, no one could be that bold yet blind. Wasn't expecting the endi ...more

I may be in the minority but I did not like this book. It took me forever to finish because I kept putting it down. I couldn't believe the stupidity of the characters. Unbelievable at times. This was my first time reading this author. Based on this book, I'm not sure if I will read any more from this author.

I've definitely read better in my opinion. Of course I prefer romance with a very happy ending. I could never really get into the book due to the author's 'voice'. It's not a terrible book in the sense that there was not real plot and the characters were fake.

This was a pretty good book. The ending could of been a lil better, but its worth the read.
Listening to the audiobook in the car. It's engaging enough to pass the hours, but no great piece of literature. Had a nice, little, unexpected twist at the end.

This was just okay with me. The story didn't really seem realistic. But overall it was a pretty good read.

Basically I became interested in becoming a writer after reading Terry McMillan’s novel Disappearing Acts. In 2004 my author dreams were realized via the release of my controversial debut novel My Daughter’s Boyfriend, the story of a 34-year old single mother that becomes attracted to her teenage daughter’s boyfriend.

I love writing about marriage, infidelity, juicy love triangles, family, romance
