The author has posted at SOL for about 4 years with his last one being about 18 months ago. Of those 21 stories, this is is highest rated at 7.99 as of this writing. The rating is appropriate.

This is a feel good cheating wife story without being a BTB (burn the bitch) one. About a 90 minute read for me but be advised that I'm not a fast reader. But it will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy. Here I speak from the aggrieved spouse's point of view, regardless of the gender of the reader.

Technically, the author would have benefited from one more pass through the story to remove a few imperfections. Know, however, said imperfections are few and don't really detract from the story. So I'd give it a 9 technically.

Plot is old as Shakespeare, i.e. the cheating wife. Even so, only 52,873,219 of those type of stories have been written in the intervening years. :) So I can't really give a decent score there.

Appeal is high for me as I like cheating wife stories. I like BTMs even more.

In any case, it's worth the read.
