Cheaters is the book that broke new ground for Eric Jerome Dickey, following the skyrocketing success of his first three #1 Blackboard bestsellers, Sister, Sister, Friends and Lovers, and Milk in My Coffee. Cheaters takes on a larger canvas and cast of characters, and fearlessly explores how bad even good people can sometimes behave in the game of love. It has earned Dickey even more loyal readers, and was chosen as Blackboard’s Best Book of the Year.“Wonderfully written...more than just a good beach read.” —Washington Post Book World
In Cheaters, Stephan loves em and leaves em, just like his daddy. Chanté thinks she’s found her dream man—until his wife and kids come banging on her door. Jake is a player—left with bad dreams he just can’t shake. Darnell is true to his wife...but the temptation’s getting tougher every day. Tammy is caught between the man she loves, and the woman he’s promised to. And while Karen lectures her friends about fooling around, she may not live up to her own high standards...
This is the world of Eric Jerome Dickey. It’s heart-wrenching and hilarious, smart and soulful, and as honest and recognizable as your own—and that of everyone who never loved you back.
“What gives the book a compelling edge is the characters’ self-discovery...Thankfully, Dickey goes beyond the ‘men are dogs and women are victims’ stereotype.” —USA Today
“Raw, street-savvy humor.” —Publishers Weekly
“As the title suggests, this is a book about dawgs. Not dogs, but d-a-w-g-s. Cheatin’, lyin’, no good, no-‘count, dirty lowdown mendawgs and womendawgs…You can’t read Cheaters without becoming an active participant. You easily find yourself turning a page, shaking your head, and tsk-tsking.”—Los Angeles Times
