ARC Review: The Affair by Beth Kery

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.

Purchase on Amazon: The Affair (The Complete Novel)

3.5 Stars

Don't be alarmed by this title; no it's not a love triangle. The Affair follows two characters who have been through so much in their lives and afraid to put love out there again. Emma Shore and Michael Montand come from different backgrounds, but both have lost family and loved ones and just taking life as it comes. 

Emma is a hospice nurse who has a tough job, but being with these patients gives her some sort of peace and closure. She live with her younger sister and will always try to put her first. Whereas Michael is heir to a the racing car company and is known to be cold and selfish. He's closed off, but has a specific taste of being in control over the women he is with.

Emma works at the Motland resident to care for his dying relative. That is where Emma first runs into Michael. He's handsome, mysterious and senses a dangerous, bad boy side of him. Michael is immediately attracted to Emma, but knows he should stay away from her. 

After plenty of drama that these two face, they begin their "affair." But on Emma's term. She wants to walk away and end their relationship when she says so. And she's doing it to protect her heart. 

The Affair takes you through plenty of angst, drama and some steamy scenes. It's also full of mystery and secrets that come to surface throughout this book. Overall, if you like the rich, alpha-male who is in control over his woman in the bedroom, then this book is for you!
