Book Blurb:

Vic and Ramona Stafford have been together for fifteen years and married for twelve.
To the outside world they have everything most people dream of – an attractive spouse, a beautiful home, two smart, good looking sons, and a half-million dollar annual income.
But no one knows what’s really going on between them. Do they have what it takes to keep professional pressure, loneliness and outside temptations from destroying their seemingly perfect marriage?
 

EXCERPT
 
When he entered the room lined with books, which had belonged to his parents and all of his brothers, Nick was sitting on the edge of the desk holding a folded newspaper. Vic closed the door. “What do you want to show me? Are you in some kind of trouble?”
“No, but you might be.” He opened the paper and handed it to Vic. “Turn to page nineteen.”
Vic looked at the front page and frowned. “Rolling Out? I doubt there’s anything in there I’d want to read?”
His brother crossed his arms and waited while he thumbed through the pages then froze when he saw the pictures. When he flicked on the green banker’s lamp sitting on the table, he wished he hadn’t. The local entertainment/news tabloid had a center spread of events around the city from the previous weekend. The chain on the lamp swung wildly when he slammed his hand on the table seeing the shots of Mona and Patterson dancing together. In one he had his hands on her hips, and in the other hers were clasped around his neck. These were worse than the Jezebel photos. Vic cursed, folded the paper and shoved it under his arm.
“Did you know about this?”
“Yeah, a friend of mine showed me pictures in Jezebel magazine this afternoon.”
“Are you and Mona all right?”
Vic snorted and searched for words to explain to Nick what was going on in his marriage and, at the same time, imagining how photos of Heather and him in Chicago would’ve looked. He let out a loud sigh. “We’re having some issues right now.”
“What’s she thinking? He’s younger than I am.” Nick sounded dumbfounded.
Vic’s eyes stretched. “That’s the only thing you have a problem with?”
“No, but it just seems out of character for Mona. Is she seeing him?”
“I don’t know. Please don’t mention this to Mama or Daddy, okay?”
“Don’t worry. They won’t hear it from me, but you know Mama’s had a subscription to Jezebel for as long as I can remember.”
Nick was right. Vic recalled seeing the publication on the cocktail table in his parents’ house. “Oh, hell. Let me get out of here before Mama comes home. Thanks for showing me these. Tell the rest of them I said goodnight.” He slipped out of the front door unnoticed and got into his car with volcanoes erupting behind his eyelids, wanting nothing more than to destroy this punk who had the barefaced boldness to put his hands on another man’s wife. His wife. The steering wheel suffered the brunt of his anger as he pounded it several times.
Beneath the anger, he was tormented by conflicting emotions. Seeing Mona receive the obvious attention of another man filled him with rage, but his anger was clearly unjustified, considering he’d done the same thing. In fact, what he’d done was even more intimate. Confronting her would make him a hypocrite. If there was one thing he despised, it was a man who pretended to have virtues he didn’t actually possess, and he was that man at the moment.
