A Cheater’s Promise is an explicit urban tale of sex and drama written by Brooklyn native Maurice Derrick Geter. It takes place in Brooklyn, New York. It is a grown folk urban read that will take you inside the mind of a playa. Although, this book has a decent story line, I found certain parts disturbing such as domestic violence, drug use, disrespect issues towards women and other explicit situations that upset me as the reader. This book is not for the tame. It’s one of those books you will either love or hate.
“Never fall in love, that is why you keep more than one female in your life, because a b*tch ain't never breaking my heart,” was one of the most impressionable statements made to the main character Damien White at a very young age when he got caught watching a strip show in the back of a store where his father worked. From there on, the story painted an image of how Damien and how some men learn from a very early age to think in the “playa mode.” According to the author, there are three types: (1) Pimp: one who needs money. (2) Playa: one who wants mostly pu*sy. (3) The Hustler: one who just wants both.
Although, Damien would always have a "girlfriend" that he would call his "main woman" he always kept one or two "side chicks" that he would call "jump offs". A jump off is a woman who is down for whatever and is willing to be used for sex by a man even if he is in a "committed relationship" and just will cause havoc. She is available anytime and anyplace for any type of sexual encounter such as threesomes etc.
In my opinion, there were some sex scenes in the book that seemed a little bit exaggerated and there were parts that could have been written a little better. One thing that I cannot deny...there is definitely a story here, and it sparked my interest because it seemed to be a very honest story written to the point that I at times felt upset with the main character throughout the book! And also, with the women who allowed him to degrade them, use them and lie to them.
There's something unstoppable about a woman's intuition. Once a woman is pushed to her limits, there’s no going back. This is something that Damien experienced over and over again, but did not truly seem to "get it."
I think what bothers a lot of people about this book is that this is something that does happen A LOT (but that is the ugly game of cheating), as I can admit that I even know a "Damien". It is pathetic and very sad that one could live his life so selfishly. Damien is a loser! Could he ever be a changed man? Is there any help for this type of man? Well, you know what they say about karma...
This book is definitely a good urban read. If you are easily offended by explicit language and controversial topics, then this is not the book for you (because you will get very upset)!!! But if you are interested in reading an honest but raw book about the mind of a cheater as well as being entertained, then this is the book for you
