Their marriage lacked love, but everything changed when Hadley met Jethro Gutierrez, an intern under her supervision at the hospital. Jethro, despite being in a relationship with Kathleen Stewart, brought an unexpected light and cheerfulness into Hadley's life, making her believe in true love once again. However, chaos ensued when Hadley discovered her husband's affair with Kathleen. The situation grew even messier when she chose to shield Jethro from this truth, wanting to spare him heartbreak.

Writing Style

Black Widow in “My Revenge to My Cheating Husband” is clear and to the point in her writing style. There is very little use of proverbs, idioms, or any other type of figurative language, and the grammar is simple. This enables the development of a rhythm of a swift-moving story, and the text is laid out in a clear manner so that even a reader with a minimum of prior knowledge will not get lost.

First person narration from the viewpoint of Hadley makes the reader develop a close relationship with the main character. This is because the reader is in Hadley’s head and thus feels her pain of betrayal and then her desire for revenge.

The author also employs dialogue to the extent of revealing the personalities of the characters and their relationship. The conflicts are present throughout the novel, especially in the dialogues between Hadley and Benedict, which are spiteful and sarcastic because of their deteriorated marriage.

However, the writing style also has its drawbacks. At times the absence of detail is almost palpable and the reader feels that they were not given enough to visualize what is taking place. The action in the movie is relatively intense and fast which, at times, detracts from the complexity of the characters.

Nevertheless, the above-discussed minor issues can be said to be adequately compensated for by Black Widow’s writing style which gets the job done. The plot and dialogue make the novel into an interesting read, while the first-person perspective puts the reader into Hadley’s shoes and lets them experience the emotional turmoil.
