MY SISTER’S EX

Rating: 3 Cups
Could Rachel Merrell have possibly made the worst decision of her life when she ended her engagement to Jeffrey Williams? She is just so young, and the thought of being tied down to a man that raises a few alarms makes her sweat.
She has always felt second best, but not this time. This is Marlene Draper’s time to fly, and the fact that Jeff is Rachel’s ex is not going to stop her from having a good man.
So maybe Marlene does feel a little guilty about seeing Jeff, but if Rachel was dumb enough to let this sexy and adoring man go, than it is open season as far as she is concerned. He makes her feel like the sexiest woman on the planet, and she needs a little of that kind of loving. Rachel is sickened and infuriated when she learns of Jeff and Marlene’s relationship. Her feelings for the man are still too raw to accept this and feel good for her sister, but when Jeff starts playing his games, Rachel must decide if Marlene deserves her intervention, or if she should just sit back and let the chips fall.
The love/hate relationship of sisters is glaringly obvious in this story, as competition is never so bloody as when two women who love each other fight over the same man. I cannot say that I particularly care for either of the main characters, but Marlene is especially annoying. Nothing sets me off like someone who acts so righteous when it comes to religion, and then turns around to be the biggest hypocrite of all. Emotions run high both for the characters and the readers of My Sister’s Ex; a real testament to the talent of Cydney Rax.
