We meet three close friends: Shayla the smart one. Rhonda, the fiery of the bunch and Gladys, the Spanish salsa. They take different roads in life but their sisterhood remains. They have each others' backs. Ain't that the truth! Or is it? What happens when you throw a man in the mix? Can the invisible line drawn in the sand of sisterhood be crossed to a place of no return?
Deep. Titus, a street thug who plays dirty while keeping his hands clean marries the love of his life; Shayla. Oh the bliss. Oh the merriment. Life for the two is perfect. They have all they wanted and more. However, as the years go by Shalay is feeling the distance between her and her husband grow wider. She'd confide in Gladis but she knows that she has enough to worry about what with her marriage barely holding on.
She turns to Rhonda. The one with the ears always willing to listening. The one who constantly defends Titus like a brother. Shayla tells her everything. Every fight or disagreement to every intimate detail of their nights of romance. Rhonda never refuses to hear. She is always quick to give advice. What are sisters for?
Yet she has her own evil motive. She wants Titus as well as all of what Shayla has. Forget the time Shayla took her in when her own mother kicked her out of the house. Sisterhood doesn't matter in the game of love and war. She is set on ending the marriage with each lingering kiss she plants on Titus' skin and with each moment they spend in the adulterous bed filled with sweet roses and their thorns.
The secrets of a kept woman is spiced with adultery, betrayal, abuse, and revenge. But in the end a beautiful thing springs forth; strength. The strength to move on and the strength to continue on. When I saw Gladis and Shayla displaying this strength I felt proud having cursed them throughout the read. What can I say, those two were my favorite characters. If anyone deserved some happiness after the smokes cleared it was those two.
Dramatastic is how I'll describe Secrets Of A Kept Woman. Trust me it will not leave you bored for a minute. Happy reading!
