The Reliable Wife
The Reliable Wife

Based on the cover and the beginning of the novel, I thought it was a love story.  It turned out to be a very dark and twisted love story that was pretty hard to put down.  I really reminded me of the movie Original Sin.

 

I also enjoyed the contrast between the cold, snowy terrain of Wisconsin and the passion that ensues in the bedroom.  Yes, there are a lot of sex scenes, but I found them to be more intriguing because the author is male.  In fact, I don't remember if I've ever read stories this passionate from a male author before.  If your looking for a dark and sensual read on a cold night, try this.
