Infidelity is always a Hot Topic. Whoâ€™s cheating-the man or the woman?Â In The Cheating Curve (Dafina Kensington, 2010, $15.00, available at Amazon.com)by Paula T. Renfroe, two best friends come to terms with cheating in their marriages. But who’s actually cheating? Well, youâ€™ll have to read the book to find out the juicy details. TheÂ novel opens with two best friends getting pampered at their favorite spa in Brooklyn, NYÂ and the stage is quickly set. â€œThis sexy, captivating novelÂ examines sexual and emotional drama that real men and women deal with in relationships every day.â€

I caught up with Paula and got a chance to ask her, What inspired her to write, The Cheating Curve And here’s what she had to say:
â€œI wanted to explore how complex and layered infidelity is. So many people over-simplify it as immoral and are extremely judgmental of, both menÂ and women who have extra-marital affairsÂ and of women who choose to stay with men who have cheated on them. And yet, historically men of great characterÂ and plenty of beautiful, noble, intelligent women have made these choices. RelationshipsÂ and people are both layeredÂ and complexÂ and I wanted to examineÂ and share that.â€
