I made a conscious decision to cheat on my husband.
Now, before you judge me, hear my story. Hear how much I’m like you, how similar my thoughts are to your own. Yes, I’m a horrible person. Yes, I’ve done horrible things. Yes, I don’t deserve forgiveness. Yes, bad things happened because of my actions.
But I’m willing to bet I’ve done things that maybe, just maybe, you have thought of doing.
Maybe, just maybe, you’re not as innocent as you’d like to think.
Or maybe I’m not so guilty …
WARNING: This book involves CHEATING. The word AFFAIR is in the title. The main character has an AFFAIR. In the synopsis (directly above), she states that she intentionally has an AFFAIR. If you don’t like CHEATING, then you have been VERY WELL warned. Also, this book is primarily written in the third-person narrative.

Can I just say WOW! I saw the synopsis; you don’t see many books about cheating. I was totally intrigued because it was different. So I am expecting a different kind a read and boy did I get so much more! This book is so much more than a book about cheating. What it was is a compelling, sexy, spellbinding read and will take you on one helluva ride!
The way this book played out, the drama of a failing marriage, the conflicting feelings over making the move to attempt to move forward and find happiness. Then you’re hit with this handsome stranger that comes in to save the day. The suspense, the drama of what happens afterwards will be something you aren’t expecting by reading the synopsis.
You knew Mischa was going to have an affair, you knew she was going to do it but you didn’t know what type of man it would be with. What type of man you would soon fall in love with yourself, I know I did. Everyone wants to marry their best friend, but sometimes your best friend is just that…. A Friend. Not the love of your life, not the person who makes you feel unbelievably craved, desired and loved.
Tal. OH M GEE. This man is no ordinary man. He’s got secrets, but nothing you will be thinking. He has the ability to make Mischa feel, more than she ever has….
“I was drunk on him. High on him. I wanted to swallow him down, inhale him, inject him. I wanted to live under my skin and change my DNA.”
I don’t condone cheating and I think anyone who is absolutely against it would still love this book simply because this book was MORE. The writing is absolutely amazing; the plot is a ride you aren’t expecting to take. The twists and turns will leave you guessing. I think sometimes in life, you go in a direction you never thought you would go, but when you get to the end of the journey you find it’s the best decision you’ve made. No matter what the journey is, you’ll always reflect on where you started and hopefully be happy where it ends.

Another amazing read from Stylo Fantome and I can’t wait for more! A definite one click is recommended for this one! 5 Stars – Shera
How much I wanted him took me by surprise. I didn’t want to feel that way – I’d been telling the truth. I wasn’t looking for another relationship. Clearly, I wasn’t good at relationships, and had no business entering into an already-fucked-up-relationship without ending my last totally-fucked-up-relationship.
But it was like he understood me. I could say anything to him, literally anything, and he just got it. He didn’t think I was a horrible human being for cheating on my husband. He didn’t care that I was married. Didn’t care that I was emotionally stunted most of the time, and physically inhibited some of the time. All he cared about was being with me. Everything else, that was just background noise.
I hadn’t ever known that kind of freedom, to just be myself, one hundred percent. Say whatever I want, do whatever I want, in all situations. You just can’t be like that with most people, there’s always a filter that needs to be in place. But not with Tal.
Not in any situations.
I was drunk on him. High on him. I wanted to swallow him down, inhale him, inject him. I wanted him to live under my skin and change my DNA. I wanted to live in his air and breathe his passion.
I thought maybe, just maybe, I could overdose on him. If I could just take him one more time, and shut my eyes, and it would be the last time, with anyone, with anything, that would be alright. Guilt would be gone. Hurt would be gone. Confusion would be gone. Oppression would be gone. Obsession would be gone.
My memory would be his, I would only exist in his mind, and that was fine.
It was the only place I wanted to be, anymore.

Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since …, forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.
I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t understand me.
Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
