Never flirt with temptation. Never lust after what I can’t have. And never, under any circumstances, screw a married man again. By the time this story is told, I’ll have failed at all three… With my heart and reputation in ruins, I can’t afford to make another mistake. Boarding a flight to Seattle is supposed to give me a clean slate, but from the moment Cash Montgomery slides into the seat next to mine, I’m captivated by his steel eyes that see too much. I ache for this stranger in a way I’ve never ached for anyone. But I didn’t know he was married, and I sure as hell didn’t see the curveball fate had in store. My clean slate in Seattle isn’t so clean after all because my new boss is the man forbidden to me. And the only man I want. The only man I’ll do anything for, even if it means breaking the promise I made to myself when I fled my old life in shame. I wasn’t supposed to fall for a married man, but I did. NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Though the subject matter deals with cheating, there are no innocent parties here. Book 1 in the Trashy Affair series. TrashyForeplayTeaser2
I go perfectly still as his arm snakes around me from behind. A warm palm flattens against my stomach, and the tips of his fingers inch beneath the waistband of my jeans. Everything south of that tempting hand flares to life, setting off a deep ache I know only he can fix. Pulling me against his body, he leans down and whispers into my ear. “Watching him touch you is killing me.” “Knowing you’re married is killing me.” He curses under his breath. A hint of his woodsy cologne, along with the sweet aroma of bourbon fills my nostrils. “Have you been drinking?” “Maybe a little.” He whirls me around until we’re face-to-face, and my heart flutters in my throat as he tightens his arms around me. “Come upstairs with me.” His proximity riots through me, the heat of his body sizzling all the way to my fucking toes. We fall into a lazy sway, dancing but not quite, and for a crazy second, I consider following him to the VIP area in the loft. As far as I can tell it’s empty unless a stray couple is hiding in the shadows in the very back. I doubt it though. The club is vibrating with restless energy as everyone crowds the first floor in anticipation of the concert. “Look at me, Jules.” His words jolt me to awareness, and I realize I’m staring at his chest. I curl my hands into fists at my sides, too tempted to run my palms down that broad expanse hiding underneath cotton. I bet it’s the softest material on the planet, but I won’t find out because I’m not going there. Nope. Not. Gonna. Do. It. Because I have zero control right now, and we’re standing in the middle of a busy club with God-knows-who watching. And if I do touch him…I might not stop. “Jules,” he murmurs. “Bring those gorgeous eyes up here.” I lift my chin and dive headfirst into the fire of his gaze. His eyes are a smoldering, liquid steel. “Cash…please…” “Please what?” “Don’t make me want to give in. You’re married.” My voice cracks on that ugly word. “My marriage is a sham.” “Your marriage is your business.” I grip his arms, intending to push him away. But somewhere along the way, my brain gets its wires crossed, and I end up curling my fingers around his biceps. God, he’s built—solid man through and through. “I disagree,” he says, dipping his head until our mouths linger a hairsbreadth from each other. “Everything about me is very much your business.” “W-why?” “Because I can’t feel this way about you without it being your business.”

********MY REVIEW*****

Trashy Foreplay is one of the best books to come out in 2017. The reason I say this is because it is so much more than what is initially expected when you read it. You have a story that’s about two lost souls, who have had their hearts broken and then they meet up on an airplane ; from there they find an all-consuming love at one of the worst moments of their lives. And yet they fight this love, try to deny it. Their love, their passion is like a tsunami and they really can’t fight the feelings that they find in each other but oh how they try. There is a roller coaster of emotions which shows them going back and forth, and at times you will need tissues and you will need a stiff drink because of how hot things get. Another thing is as this story goes on, you see why the main characters are doing what they are doing and why. There is a deep mystery which as the story started, baffled me but by the end, there was another deep mystery and my first questions were answered but another deep mystery had formed. GAH!! I loved this book and even though I dislike Cliffhangers—and yes this book leaves you with a heck of one, this was one book that has Pizzazz and great character so I enjoyed the mystery and the suspense the cliffhanger left the readers with.
I do not want to give too much away but there is this:  let me say this--some people will  be turned off right away from this book, because of  the fact the author states upfront  that this story involves cheating. Normally I would be one of those people because I dislike cheating BUT the approach the author took with this controversial topic and was just insanely fantastic! The author , in my opinion, expanded the reader's perception of a controversial topic  and did it with a deft writing hand. I would definitely suggest giving this a read and be on the look out for book 2 in this series. The main characters of Jules and Cash will stay with you after you have finished reading and leaving you craving more of their story. Kudos to this author for writing such a brilliant book!

My Rating:  5.0  stars *****
"I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
