Exes Author:Dan Greenburg Summary from back of the book... — A woman's thoughts as she prepares to kill the man she loves. This is right. This is what needs to be done now. This is what he deserves, she told herself. She slid the blade out of its plastic case and locked it into position. — "You're so wonderful," he sighed, almost unconscious with postcopulatory fatigue. "I... more » love you."
He does not love you. He does not need you. His interest in you is inversely proportional to your availability, she thought. As she balanced the tip of the razor on the surface of his softly pulsing neck he began to snore. His tragic vulnerability brought tears to her eyes.
You cannot hold him, she thought. Even if you can maintain a tough exterior for a while, alternately tearing at his fragile male ego till it's in tatters and then giving him periodic bursts of affection to keep him breathing, playing him like a game fish, giving him a little slack and then reeling him in hard, sooner or later you will weaken and lose control of him because you want to weaken and lose control again, and he will tire of you.
He will toy with you like a cat with a wounded mouse. He will do the human male equivalent which is called letting you down easy, and then he will go back to his wife and that will be the end of you. You will dehydrate and die without his juices and he will live. Is that what you want-- for him to live and you to die? Because that's the choice; only one of you can live.« less
