DisilgoldSoul Magazine
One of the most provocative, entrancing and insatiable naughty novels of the year has arrived. Cydney Rax is on her way to being a serial bestseller as the author of the reigning book, “My Daughter’s Boyfriend.”

Ann Brown of RAWSISTAZ.com
Cydney Rax has opened Pandora’s box…My Husband’s Girlfriend is an explosive story about the sanctity of marriage, infidelity and the other woman; it will evoke lively discussions.

Marissa Monteilh, author of Make Me Hot

“My Husband’s Girlfriend is a heartfelt special delivery of faith and doing the right thing. Rax has penned a moving, poignant example of the true measure of a woman.”


  • This novel is my favorite. I love the story, the characters, the writing style, and the emotional depth.
  • I received criticism regarding the storyline. Some said it was so implausible. But when I began receiving emails from readers who were in that situation, or know people who were going through the things my characters went through, it confirmed that people go through all kinds of situations behind the scenes. That just because a reader hasn’t heard of a scenario before, doesn’t mean it’s not happening to someone else in real life.
  • This is the book that male readers respond to the most. As a matter of fact, they confessed that many married men would love to have a wife who doesn’t mind if the hubby has a girlfriend.
  • People write and say “Why don’t you turn this into a movie?” Oh okay, sure thing. Right away. No prob!
  • The sequel to this novel will be released in summer 2010. Can’t wait!
