Scott's novel contains plenty of lustful
sex, including anal, consensual bondage and a menage a trois. While these couples certainly keep their marriages hot, their two-wrongs-make-a-right philosophy detracts from the enjoyment of the stories.
Even after counseling, Shelby can't forgive husband Eric for his one-night stand and decides she should have one too. In "Tit for Tat," the fact that Eric is privy to everything she does leads to a situation she never dreamed possible. In "Tuesdays With Lori," Lori and Kent have the future clearly plotted, and some sacrifices now will make it doable. But Lori is determined that their sex life won't be one of those sacrifices. Dani and Trevor are married for eight months before they spend a night apart. When she makes some unexpected discoveries about Trevor, they may break -- or make -- their marriage in "G Marks the Spot." (NAL heat, Jan., 272 pp., $14.00)
