Product description

About the Author

Bob Rector has been a professional storyteller for forty years, but his background is primarily in film, video, and stage work as a writer and director. Bob was one of the pioneers of music videos, first for The Now Explosion and then for Music Connection, which were highly popular nationally syndicated shows that preceded MTV by ten years. He created over 100 films for the top musical artists of the times. Bob wrote and directed an outdoor-adventure feature film, Don't Change My World, and has won countless awards for nature and sports documentaries. His original three-act play, Letters From the Front, entertained America’s troops around the world for fifteen years and was the first theatrical production to be performed at the Pentagon. This beloved show, written and directed by Rector, became known as the World's Most Decorated Play. After decades on the road (and in the air) Bob finally settled down long enough to write his first novel, Unthinkable Consequences.

I simply couldn't put this book down. It grabbed me from page one and never let me go. The setting is very seductive: an island off the Florida Keys in 1959. Enter Paula, the fascinating woman Bob Rector has conjured up for us with such amazing skill. She is faced with very different choices than women have today, but she is drawn so clearly and completely that I not only identified with her, I found myself wondering how I would have dealt with being a woman in the 1950s.

Rector drops us right into the drama from the beginning. There are no wasted words, nothing overstated, just good solid story-telling that leads us directly into such a compelling world of intriguing characters that I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Yes, it's that good.

When we first meet Paula, she is on her way to a rendezvous with her lover, Kurt. She's married, he's charming with a questionable past Paula knows nothing about. We see the plot unfold from a very personal perspective inside the minds of each character, which builds a level of suspense that reminded me of the best movies of Alfred Hitchcock. Except Rector has a more intimate way of unfolding his thriller, one that was very sexy at times. But just when you think you know where he's going with the plot, he flips you upside down as easily as Kurt does Paula during their passionate love-making scenes.

This is definitely a book I don't want to give plot points away because I would hate to spoil it for anyone. So I'll just say that Paula and Kurt's affair leads us into a riveting world with explosive characters and surprising plot twists. This is a thriller on one hand, but it's also extremely romantic and unexpectedly heart-felt.

(Quote) Paula thought, "I need pollinating bad." She was in a secret place doing a secret thing, not behaving at all like the Paula everybody thought she was. This was Secret Paula. Exciting. Daring. Uninhibited in a way that frankly boggled her mind...(end of quote)

"Amazing" is an appropriate term to describe our protagonist, Paula. In the quote above, we are given clear and unmistakeable insight into how she thinks. Judging from this, there can be no doubt that we are in for an exquisitely satisfying story. It is clear that there is more to Paula than meets the eye.

Thus, right from the very beginning we are intrigued. Our curiosity is "aroused" to find out more about Paula. Of course, we make some predictions. Chief among them is that Paula will have a passionate nature, and as we read further, we are not disappointed. Paula is all that we can imagine, and more.

For readers who have read Gustave Flaubert's Madame Bovary, the parallels are clearly evident. In "Madame Bovary", the story focuses on a doctor's wife, Emma Bovary, who has adulterous affairs and lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life. In "Unthinkable Consequences", Paula Taylor is in reality just an everyday housewife. It's 1959, a man's world. A woman's place is in the home. Paula's husband is married to his work and her only child is in college. Life has become loveless and stagnate, a fate that's unthinkable for Paula...

In sum, this book delivers everything that you might imagine or hope for that is built on the premise of a married woman seeking sexual satisfaction outside of her marriage. To say that the book is "sexy" would be the understatement of the year.

At first glance, Bob Rector’s “Unthinkable Consequences” appears to be about a sexy affair with Paula and Kurt, two inflamed lovers meeting at night to continue their passionate, atmospheric tryst. Instantly seduced by the clandestine situation and lovely descriptions, such as ”...listened to the cacophony of night sounds...tree frogs were locked in a grating, rusty harmony, accompanied by the frenzied buzzing of insects...,” I became totally immersed in this fast-paced, page-turning, Machiavellian story, where the cast of characters––two ruthless ex-military con artists, a neglectful husband, a secretive mother-in-law, a faithful caretaker, a spoiled college student, a hopeful employee, and a smart, game-playing mascot––all sent me down paths that didn’t turn out the way I thought they would.

Yet in the midst of all of this duplicity was something a little unexpected for me: a very touching portrayal of two people not just enjoying each other physically, but enjoying true love for the first time in their lives, a love where acceptance, protectiveness, in-sync bantering, and joy was very well portrayed. So well done, in fact, that towards the end of the book, as the dramatic denouement was drawing near, I found myself thoroughly rooting for this duo, recognizing full well, having read the pattern of this extremely well thought-out cliffhanger, that things just might not turn out ‘perfect’ in the end.

All I can say is I actually looked forward to sitting in a government office, possibly for hours, just so I could finish this book. Now, how many times can you said THAT?! Highly recommended? You betcha!
