Question: A seductress steals your husband, rips apart your family and shatters your dreams.
a) Wish them luck, and walk away with your head held high (because that’s what society expects you to do)?
b) Quietly seethe, but accept that there is just nothing you can do about it (because it easier for everyone if you do nothing)?

5+ Holy Shit This Book Took Me For A Ride STARS

Do not let this hideous cover and title turn you off from reading this book because I almost did. But I was lending it off Kindle Unlimited and it sounded good so I figured why not?


This book was a roller-coaster ride for sure! There's drama, betrayal, sex, and repeat. I absolutely could not put this book down! I was at work reading on my iPhone and getting annoyed when the phone rang or a guest walked in because they

Not bad, entertaining and full of drama.

A well thought-out adult story about a woman who has her life turned upside-down by her best friend and then fights back to regain control. A testament to the virility of lost souls and a read that will captivate your attention. If I could give it more than five stars, I would. In my opinion, it is that good.

I don't know who will win this battle of the wits. I kind of hope it is Rival and orphan Annie gets whats coming to her. More!

Oh good lord i aint even sure where to start! WOW just WOW! I have read many other books by this author and each time i think, it can't get better and every time i'm awestruck with her writing and always expect the unexpected as the journey unfolds.
This book is about Rival and her Husband Bradley, a Lawyer, married, two kids and eveything in life is good. Along comes Scarlet (the HARLOT) yes i call her that, temptress with one goal, to steal not only Rival's husband but also her children and her

What a book. I couldn't put it down. I didn't like how it started out with Scarlett talking and giving her tips. The narration was hard to adjust to sometimes. But the twists were great. I know Scarlett would eventually make a mistake. ...more

I received this book from the author in an exchange for an honest review.

If you are about 10% in and want to give up because you simply want to MURDER Scarlett- don't give up! It gets better!!

This book starts off with Scarlet, AKA the 'other woman', as narrator. She is beyond awful. She is an egocentric, self serving b**ch. For real. Her narcissism is so overwhelming in her POV chapters that, in the beginning at least, it was too disgusting to want to move forward with the story. She is all abo

Seriously what do I think. This book is fantastic. It actually lives up to the hype. One minute you are rooting for Scarlet and the next you want Rival to win badly. The first person narrative lends an extra layer to the writing. I found the men to be one dimensional almost like all they wanted was sex but hey what man doesn't want sex, adventurous one to be precise. Though the book gets you thinking if all women were as cunning and calculating as Rival and Scarlet then we men are doomed for sur ...more

I have a love hate relationship with this book. Loved the characters and the downright nasty tricks they play on each other. Hated the cliff hanger-read the next book-total lack of resolution to the story.

Eve Rabi's books rock! I pick one up and I CANNOT put it down. If you like drama and complex plots with excellent twists, read Eve's temptation series.
Mar 03, 2017 rated it it was ok

This story starts off from the other woman's perspective of how she plans on stealing another woman's husband and it gets really crazy after that and not in a good way...the whole story is so unbelievable until it becomes silly.

The book also ends with a cliff hanger...I will never know the ending because I will not read the next book!

I was offered this book as an ARC but, I also noticed it was on Kindle Unlimited and why not let the author get paid for it if they can. At least that was my thought process.

This review made me want to read this book! “Lock out your husband, put out your pets. Order take-out for

Have you ever seen the movie Fatal Attraction? [Who hasn’t, right?] Eve Rabi has written a story that actually gives that movie a run for its money!

Scarlett has set her sights on Bradley, and the fact that he's married to Rival doesn't phase her one bit. I have to say that I absolutely hated Scarlett, and it wasn’t just because she was the mistress. She is so...evil. There isn't anything, and I mean anything, that she won't do to get what she wants. Rival, on the other hand, I loved her! She was

I gave The Other Woman 4 stars

Rival and Bradley were happy married until Scarlet set her sights on him. Armed with devious plans to take him away, Scarlet successfully succeed and left Rival not knowing up from down. As Rival starts to get better she learns of secrets and played her own game. Bent on getting revenge she starts a game of her own and her family is the prize. Will she strong enough to go against someone as devious as Scarlet or will she learn who's a b

Scarlett, Scarlett, Scarlett...what are we going to do with you?
I am not finished yet, almost though. I am savoring every dirty morsel of Scarletts bad deeds. She is something else! I dont know why I am still shocked when it comes to light that she did something bad..I want to meet her Annie, and slap the taste out of her mouth! You did it again Eve! Never fail to amaze me with your talented writing...I cant wait until I can fill my bookshelves with all of these wonderful books...I n

Another wonderful book by author Eve Rabi. This book was a roller coaster ride that left me guessing until the very end. Scarlett is one of those women that you love to hate. She writes a book about how to break up marriages and is confident that her brilliance will take her places. And she has sights on Rival Murdoch's husband, Bradley. So she schemes and makes her plans. And soon Bradley is hers and she is setting his wife up in cruel and unusual ways.

Will evil reign? Or will Rival find a way

DNF - Got tired of tired of reading, buying, reading, buying. This is the fourth segmented book of this sequence and it's not the end. I spent $12 on it and it's definitely NOT worth $12. Don't waste your money.r

I was going to give a higher rating but this book ended with a cliffhanger. The story kept me interested but not enough to buy the next one.
