Stephanie loves James. Married for nine years, the couple leads a busy, sophisticated life in London -- Stephanie doing fashion styling for C-list celebrities, James working at his urban veterinary practice for half the week and at his rural practice the other half.
But Katie loves James, too. Ever since the kind and handsome vet treated her dog -- then asked her out for a drink -- they've practically moved in together. For the half week he spends in the country, she looks after him, helping him get over his "acrimonious divorce" and waiting for the day he'll stay with her full time.
And James loves having it all: witty wife and doting girlfriend. Then Stephanie and Katie find out about each other and discover they've both been duped. Deciding that James deserves everything he has coming, they set out to embarrass and ruin him. But in discovering the truth about James, they also learn a few things about themselves. Told from all three sides of the love triangle,Got You Backis a witty, fun and surprising tale about getting along -- and getting even.
