Available for the first time as a complete novel—the serial from the New York Times bestselling author that explores the dynamics of power and sex between two people who set the rules of desire…only to shatter them.
When unconventional hospice nurse Emma Shore secured a new position at the Breakers, the sprawling mansion of enigmatic and dangerously handsome racecar billionaire Michael Montand, she had no idea how soon she’d be drawn into his darker sexual games—or that it would be her own fantasies that would hold her captive.
Michael knew he shouldn’t have engaged such an innocent woman to share in his desires. But strong sexual appetites and selfishness run in his blood.
From Michael’s luxurious lakeside home to the sun-drenched, sensual shores of the French Riviera, Emma submits again and again to his intoxicating power. But she knows there is only one way to protect her heart.
The affair will continue, but under her conditions: Only she can end it, and when it’s over, they will part and never speak again of the things they dared to do behind locked doors.
WOW! This was so brilliant! One of THE BEST erotic romances I’ve ever read!
I don’t even know where to begin! I am so incredibly IN LOVE with this book! Beth Kery is one of those authors that just pop up out of nowhere with a FABULOUS read. I’ve only read one other novel by her and it was fantastic as well. I’ve become addicted to her writing style and every single thing that comes with it. It’s a curse and a blessing that I didn’t find out about this series until it was all bundled up in one pretty HOT package. It’s a curse because, HOLY SHIT, where the fuck have I been, living under a rock I guess. How did I not know about this? The blessing is because, THANK GOD, I would have gone absolutely bonkers if I had to stop for one second in Emma and Michael’s story. THE AFFAIR is over 500 pages of delicious and erotic exploration. It’s an explosion of lust, sensation, and passion. This book oozes eroticism like no others before it. I’ll say it again…ABSOLUTE BRILLIANCE!
OMG! I’m so in love with these characters and their incredible journey they take together. I adored Emma. She is going down as one of my favorite heroines of all time. She is so strong, so complex, and yet, so new to the kind of passion that Michael brings to the table. I love her vulnerability and her courage. But most of all I love how she takes care of Michael. She breaks him down and builds him back up. She shows him his strengths and teaches him about forgiveness and acceptance. Oh, and Michael <insert sigh here>. I have fallen hard for this character. He is tortured. He is possessive. He is filthy rich and gorgeous. And like Emma, I admire the vulnerability he shows to Emma and Emma alone. He needs to be in control, but when Emma walks into his life, she steals it away, along with his heart. He has been through so much pain and suffering, and to him, Emma is a breath of fresh air in his life. She makes him feel alive and more important she just makes him FEEL. Together these two are explosive!
I felt curiosity and excitement. I felt giddiness and a sense of adventure. I felt happiness, sadness, and so much angst. In the end I felt a profound sense of peace. The entire time I was reading this novel I was FEELING. It was refreshing and so damn perfect. I was utterly captivated by Emma and Michael’s grand passion. This is a story I will always remember. These are characters that will forever be in my heart. This is the book you keep on your favorite bookshelf and every once in a while you look over at it and it just makes you smile. That my friends, is what you call an EPIC ROMANCE.
