in Reader Questions

UPDATED!!! This is now officially a “reader recommendations” list of this genre!! :D

Bethany has some extra reading time on her hands and she has a craving. It’s taboo, forbidden AND controversial (and sometimes even creepy!!) but maybe you can help?

She asks:

Hey Maryse!

I have a week off and need desperately to fall into a book black hole and was hoping to get some suggestions :)

I’m looking for books that have an ‘other woman’ aspect to them. Either stalkery female or just straight in your face “I want your man” I loved the other woman aspects from Kade – Chantal Fernando and Kristen Ashley’s mountain man series (the first two)

Any suggestions would be great, please and thank you

Has anyone read a good one?? List ‘em below, and I’ll turn this into a forbiddeny recommendations list, too! :D

Maryse: I’m going right off the bat with Tarryn Fisher’s “Bad Mommy“. That one was just plain awesome and definitely had the Other Woman aspect to it. Three different POV’s but ALL of ‘em excellent and intense.

Tessa: The Opportunist (Love Me With Lies Book 1) by Tarryn Fisher

Lisa: Tarryn Fishers Opportunist series. Oh and F*ck Love.

Nay: Yes! The Opportunist series is a must for this!!!

Stacey: Agree! Taryn Fisher’s Love Me With Lies series (Opportunist, Dirty Red and Thief) is so good. Each book is told from a different POV, and is not just a re-hashing of the same events. This series is excellent on Audible (especially the “other woman’s” story, Dirty Red (Love Me With Lies Book 2).

Maryse: Stacey, that is one of my all time favorite series.

Theresa S: Tiffany Snow writes love triangles. Good author. Andrea Smith writes some goodies you might like

Lauren:

Jen C: Amore: Part 1 & Amore – Part 2 (2 parts) by Bella Jewel had the other women aspect to it with a bit of a twist.

Ashley: These aren’t so much ‘in your face’ ‘I’m taking your man.’ But they do have an ‘other woman’ aspect to them….

Lisa: Yes!! Maybe Someday.

Stacey: Oh, Avoiding Commitment by K.A. Linde! So ANGSTY. He actually asks her to convince the other woman to marry him!!!

Kooloo: Oh oh I just finished, “Something So Right” by Natasha Madison definitely had the OW… and I definitely had a wanna slap a b*tch moment!!! Teehee

Sarah: A Modern Love Story by Jolyn Palliata. One of my favs!

Jeannie S: Something Borrowed: A Novel by Emily Griffin – definitely the “other woman” book, and yet I could sympathize.

Staying on Course is the sequel to Finding Our Way…..both had the OW trying to get her man theme but Staying on Course made me so mad & sick & I just wanted to punch that OW so bad…..the 2 books have different OW in them. I’m getting pissed just thinking about that book.

Jen C April 13, 2017 at 3:43 PM

Amore (2 parts) by Bella Jewel had the other women aspect to it with a bit of a twist.

Bethany April 13, 2017 at 4:13 PM

Thanks guys!

Forged (A Devil’s Spawn MC) by Natasha Thomas
The Driven series by K. Bromberg

Lauren April 13, 2017 at 6:31 PM

Burnt (A Devil’s Spawn MC) by Natasha Thomas (I SO hated the OW in this book!!!!!)

Lauren April 13, 2017 at 6:40 PM

This got me searching my library for a book I read a while back…..the h’s ex-wife is constantly calling him to come over, saying the kids are sick or crying for him, that she needs groceries, that something needs fixing in the house, or the kids are begging for a bedtime story from him, etc. He always goes because he’s a good father but the ex won’t let him bring the heroine so the h & h fight about it constantly….he sees that he’s being manipulated but won’t “rock the boat” because he’s afraid she’ll take his visitation away. The ex-wife comes & goes in & out of the h & h’s house all of the time. I can’t remember the book!!! I’m still looking but it’s driving me crazy.

Roomhate by Penelope Ward (amazing).
Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover (one of my all-time favorites!)
The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen (I’ve read this about 5 times).

Lisa April 14, 2017 at 10:50 PM

Yes!! Maybe Someday.

Stacey April 15, 2017 at 10:22 AM

Oh, Avoiding Commitment by K.A. Linde! So ANGSTY. He actually asks her to convince the other woman to marry him!!!

Tiffany Snow Kathleen Turner is great live triangle

Oppurtunist, Avoiding Commitment, Maybe Someday, Roomhate and Something Borrowed are all must reads!!!

Can you recommend any books like Surviving Raine by Shay Savage. I loved that book, but can’t find one similar with an asshole guy turned better.

Leslie M April 20, 2017 at 2:34 PM

Jennifer, I think Maryse has a list of jerky hero’s but I can’t find it.

Yoooo Hooo, Maryse! Help!

The first that comes to mind that I loved is Rush by Emma Scott.

Maryse April 20, 2017 at 7:09 PM
Ashley April 20, 2017 at 11:12 PM

I absolutely loved F*ck Love. I read the book once but have listened to the audiobook 3 or 4 times, it’s one that I keep going back to.
