Time Warp
Alessia Brio
Contemporary erotic romance
Available from Phaze
ISBN: 1-59426-522-4
April 2007

Alex and Dan Gallagher have everything on their first anniversary. He's finally divorced from his wife. The one he had been cheating on for her. Life is good in the suburbs for the two. By the third anniversary things have drastically changed. He's been seeing his first wife, Beth, again, is planning to move out and remarry her. Alex has a devilish plan up her sleeve to make sure that doesn't happen.

Alessia Brio gives us a tale of what could happen to a cheating spouse when the partner is a pharmacist or in the medical profession. Alex is painted as patient, willing to wait until their special day to enact the plan she's developed since she found Dan cheating. We can almost hear her evil laugh as she sets him up to have her way with him one last time and make sure Beth doesn't want him. She's done her research on the internet and is a totally modern woman buying toys, checking out the meds, the knots and getting everything ready.

The author does a great job with her storyline. It's like we have a tape and can fast forward from anniversary to anniversary, hitting only the highlights and cutting out the 'commercials' that happened between times. The author leaves it up to us to fill in the blanks in any way we want. This is an interesting way to tell a story and I found I had a lot of fun with it.

Overall rating:
Sensuality rating: Explicit

BLURB: Dan doesn't appreciate Alex any longer, and Alex just does not appreciate Dan's infidelity. When cunning and creativity combine in a woman scorned, revenge turns criminally delicious. Who's really the guilty party inthis twisted tale of torment?
