In here we meet married executive Reginald Brooks who has been living a double life--with two families in two different Florida cities. But after nearly a decade, he decides it's time to "come clean" with both women. But the results may be tragic as the so called the "perfect man" comes undone by the consequences of a double life.
Reggie is a brave soul because I don't think a lot people could have pulled off what he did and he certainly hurt a lot of them, including himself, being a "pretender." The story was believable and the rest of characters were well developed. It was definitely a page turner and kept my interest from beginning to end. It had an unfortunate and unexpected ending and I was very saddened by the actions taken by the other woman, although I could understand her hurt over living a complete lie. I was also shocked that the initiator of all of the problems couldn't handle what he had placed on others for so many years.
The author made you feel as if you were a "fly on the wall" in every scene of the book. I agree with the other reviews that this should be made into a movie's you have to be careful about who you deal with...if it doesn't feel right, nine times out of ten, it's not right. It broke my heart at certain parts, while other occasions made me think. Millenia Black did a great job with her debut and is well recommended.
This is an excellent book which keeps the reader interested throughout. The end of each chapter leaves the reader with a cliffhanger, enticing the reader to continue. For that reason, it makes excellent holiday reading. Once you begin reading you will not want to put this book down.
Geena Brighton, columnist for Sherrington
I can tell you, the pages turn themselves! The characters are so well-drawn and you really get caught up in their choices. Some infuriated me, and others I sympathized with and rooted for. My favorite character was definitely Reginald Brooks, the main one. He wasn't at first, but he ended up showing us a great moral in the end of the story. The ending to The Great Pretender is a true lesson that gives a reader a great moral value on top of the exciting, fast-paced story that the author leads up to it with.
