ARC Review: Crosstown Crush (Sins in the City #1) by Cara McKenna

The first in a new series from the “wicked-hot”* author of Hard Time and Give It All explores the fantasies of a daring married couple—and those of a stranger invited to play along in their scandalous little games… When he’s working, Mike Heyer is all business—every inch the alpha male, with the hard, capable body to back up his persona. But at home he can be a different man entirely, harboring appetites only his wife gets to glimpse…

When Samira first learned of her husband’s fantasies, she was reluctant, even alarmed. But after witnessing the way they set him on fire, she yielded, and happily indulged. As their games have intensified, so has the rush. And now so has the risk—they’re poised to take Mike’s indecent desires to the next level, by opening their bed to a sexy, brazen stranger. A man seeming custom-made to grant every last one of Mike and Samira’s sinful wishes.

Welcoming someone new into their lives was always a dangerous proposition, but the couple imagined if anything was at stake, it was their privacy…not their hearts.

3.5 Stars

Crosstown Crush is full of steam, trust and a little taboo! Mike and Sam Heyer love to a little role playing in their marriage. It what makes their marriage full of love and trust with each other. Sam is will to do whatever it takes to please her husband. And Mike has a particular kink that turns him on--it's "catching his wife cheating." And it's all made up games that these two play. That's until, they decided to introduce a real life stranger into their games.

What I loved about this couple is that they were open and honest with each other. Their marriage was based on trust and commitment, no matter who they brought into their fun and games. There wasn't a moment of "real cheating" behind  each other's back. 

When they find a stranger (and he's a hot one!0 to have fun with them, the games and their marriage intensified. It brought them so much closer. But over time, feelings and emotions start to play in their heads and  hearts. 

I kinda saw how this triangle was going to play out over the months. There's no way, emotions couldn't get involved. And I'm not saying their marriage falls apart, but it does make them take a step back to figure out the situation. Crosstown Crush is an interesting, intense and steamy read. It does have a little HEA for this couple, but I'm sure their story could continue in the next book (if it does).
