Book Description

Oct. 28 2007
When Samantha Rainford - newly wed to Douglas Cosmo Rainford III - returns home from her honeymoon to find divorce papers waiting, she’s shocked and heartbroken. Then she discovers that she’s not the first to be abandoned - she’s one of four (or maybe more) ex-Mrs. Rainfords - and decides it’s time to put into practice that old truism: Don’t get mad, get even. With the help of her longtime girlfriend Slick, a glamorous fashion model, Sam gathers together a highly unlikely team: Mrs. Kayla Rainford, an architect who moonlights as an exotic dancer; Mrs. Zoe Rainford, a plumber; and Mrs. Olivia Rainford, a former cheerleader and cartoon artist. Sam and Slick flunked out of FBI training school, but they still learned a few things there - like how to plan a mission. And the fivesome is determined to do whatever it takes to bring down Douglas Rainford III. Whatever it takes means attending a top-secret private special-ops training camp in the North Carolina mountains, where Sam meets fiercely disciplined ex-CIA operative Kollar Havapopulas. Six feet three and handsome as a Greek god, “Pappy” is the best at what he does - transforming civilians into highly skilled fighting teams. What he’s less adept at, however, is telling a woman how he feels, and before long he discovers he’s developing some very warm feelings for Samantha Rainford - an attraction that seems fated to be a total disaster. Two personalities as strong as Sam and Pappy are sure to strike sparks, but will the fire that burns between them consume everything in its way?

1.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awful May 25 2007
By Marcia Brinkley - Published on
Thankfully, I checked this book out from the library instead of buying it. The plot is contrived, the characters are one-dimensional, and the dialogue is hackneyed. I thought it was a joke at first and that the "real" plot would emerge from the dreck, but no such luck. Just a few "plot" elements: a U.S. Senator marryies women and divorces them after the honeymooon, eleven times, without being recognized; five bimbos (the Senator's exes) take special ops training after two (one of whom is a model) were dumped from FBI training; one of the bimbos falls for the special ops trainer who can't leave the mountain training ground ... dreadful! Maybe as a James Bond movie ...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the effort. June 23 2007
By Happy Reader - Published on
This was one of the worst books I have read in a long time. The ineptitude of the whole thing boggled the mind - the plot, the characters, the complete lack of effort to get information about what she was writing about (the spy game, etc,). This book would never have been published if it was not written by an established author.

2.0 out of 5 stars RIDICULOUS....................... May 2 2007
By Dana Y. Bowles - Published on
Completely ludicrous tale about a gaggle of women who are all ex-wives of a total louse who is addicted to honeymoons and marriage---but is completely NOT the marrying kind. When Samantha Rainford gathers all of the ex-wives together, they make a pact to get even with their ex-husband. Soon, the women find themselves in the mountains of North Carolina, undergoing special-ops training. What Sam does not bargain for in her quest for revenge is to fall for the staggeringly handsome Greek god running the program....and could it be that he has fallen for her also?

With a ridiculous "plot" (if one could call it that) and editing that falls woefully short (why are questions throughout this tale treated as statements??), this is a novel that I had difficulty getting through. Very slow starting, it was at least palatable by page 100. However...this author's writing style is just not for me. My first and probably last novel by Fern Michaels. 2.5 stars simply because there were some genuinely likeable characters in the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revenge is Sweet April 21 2007
By Shelly Itkin - Published on
Samantha thought she found the man of her dreams but after returning from her honeymoon and being married less then two months she was handed divorce papers.............something is wrong here. Not only is Samantha devasted as to what happened but why?

With the help of her best friend Slick a model they decide to investigate Douglas and find three others who were married to him and experienced the same short quick romance and divorce.

Revenge is sweet and these women are going to do what it takes to find him, bring him down and make him pay for breaking there hearts.

It is an easy read, has lots of interesting twists and turns and once again Ms. Michaels makes sure to have fun and bing romance into her story and make sure that the women get what they are due.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little bit different May 13 2007
By Sdreprlcr - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This story was a little bit different because the main character was training for the FBI, and then goes on to train for a top secret force of some kind. Because of the uniqueness of this story I liked it. I also liked how a little mystery and suspense came into play with out overpowering the whole book. Nice romance.
