Breaking the Rules by Mel Curtis

To say Jack and Vivian Gordon’s marriage has been rocky would be an understatement. The Gordons have been on a roller coaster of love and lust, but can’t seem to get on the same page at the same time. This power couple needs a time-out to find their happily ever after.  And life coach to Hollywood’s rich and powerful, Cora Rule, has just the solution – have the couple sign their divorce papers in a safe room…and lock them inside.


BreakingtheRulesNEWVivian Gordon had a problem.

A six-foot-two-inch hunk of a problem.

Sex with Jack hadn’t solved the problem.  Marrying him hadn’t solved the problem.  Leaving him hadn’t solved the problem.

The problem was that Viv loved her husband, but Jack didn’t love her.

It wasn’t as if Jack was incapable of love, as some of Hollywood moguls seemed to be.  No, Jack had passion aplenty, but it was for the NBA team he owned, the L.A. Flash, not for a woman.  Not for Viv.

Viv watched Jack swim his daily laps with strong, commanding strokes.  Heaven forbid Jack didn’t get his laps in.  If he didn’t, he was the biggest shit.

Her Gianvito Rossi black suede lace up heels clicked slowly across the white marble tile as she approached the patio doors in the house they’d once shared.  Her cadence was one of a doomed prisoner being shown the open door of the gas chamber.

This is the end.

And she’d chosen the execution date.

  1. Thanks for hosting me today! Hope readers take advantage of my freebies. As for Breaking the Rules, who would you want to be locked up in a safe room with? (And saying your significant other, your dog, or your kids does not count!)

  2. Intriguing question! Close quarters, danger, uncertainty… it would be easier to make a list of who not :). Not that I would even wish myself on anyone else in the same situation!
    So glad you posted. Congrats on BREAKING THE RULES and thank you for offering the freebies!

    • I would expect some RDJ mentions or Scarlett J. Or someone interesting to talk to. I posted this question on FB last week and waaaaayyyy too many people posted their kids and dog. Now, I love my dog, but if you’re going to lock me up in a safe room, I don’t want to throw the ball for the dog for all that time.

  3. Yes. Someone who plays chess wouldn’t hurt.
    BTW, on the link to your mailing list, right now it’s not letting me enter an email. There’s a default email address there that it won’t let me change (aturpingiannone [at] sustan [dot] edu). Not sure why.
