All husbands, Felix maintains, secretly want their wives to be unfaithful to them. Felix hasn't always thought this way. From the moment of his first boyhood rejection, surviving the shattering effects of love and jealousy had been the study of his life. But while he is honeymooning with Marisa in Florida, an event occurs that changes everything. In a moment, he goes from dreading the thought of someone else's hands on the woman he loves to thinking about nothing else. Enter Marius into Marisa's affections. Now Felix must wonder if he really is a happy man.

There is a quote on the back of the book that tells (and in my opinion, warns) the reader that patience when reading this novel will be rewarded. They weren't joking! This novel is well written, but each sentence is almost painfully crafted and the attention to each word choice within, in my opinion, detracts from the overall story.
