Infidelity is always a Hot Topic. Who’s cheating-the man or the woman? In The Cheating Curve (Dafina Kensington, 2010, $15.00, available at Amazon.com)by Paula T. Renfroe, two best friends come to terms with cheating in their marriages. But who’s actually cheating? Well, you’ll have to read the book to find out the juicy details. The novel opens with two best friends getting pampered at their favorite spa in Brooklyn, NY and the stage is quickly set. “This sexy, captivating novel examines sexual and emotional drama that real men and women deal with in relationships every day.”
Paula T. Renfroe is the editor-in-chief of the newly launched, Juicy Magazine and the brilliant author of The Cheating Curve. She brings this touchy topic to light with candor and sensitivity. Ms. Renfroe began her writing career as a contributor to Time Out NewYork and served as managing editor of The Source and lifestyle editor of XXL. She also co-authored her first book, Textured Tresses: The Ultimate Guide to Maintaining & Styling Natural Hair, Simon & Schuster in 2004.
I caught up with Paula and got a chance to ask her, What inspired her to write, The Cheating Curve And here’s what she had to say:
“I wanted to explore how complex and layered infidelity is. So many people over-simplify it as immoral and are extremely judgmental of, both men and women who have extra-marital affairs and of women who choose to stay with men who have cheated on them. And yet, historically men of great character and plenty of beautiful, noble, intelligent women have made these choices. Relationships and people are both layered and complex and I wanted to examine and share that.”
