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.
Review by Lorena
This book really reached my expectations!
It was deliciously written and the angst at the end really killed me!
You can't help what fate throws your way. You never know what to expect and sometimes it's in a bad way or sometimes in a good way.
Jules never expected to have an affair with her boss, well technically it wasn't an affair, it was more of a one night stand but that caused her to lose her job and her boyfriend. She hasn't had it perfect. She's had her ups and downs and lately it seems like she has more downs than ups. She decides to move to Seattle to start a new chapter in her life.
What do you do you when you meet someone and feel instant attraction? Well in this case, it is both ways. Cash and Jules just saw those sparks fly when they first laid eyes on each other. But they never thought that they'd meet again (wishful thinking).
They always thought that they would be the "one that got away" but their chemistry was just so damn strong that no matter the circumstances it seemed like as much as they tried to control their attraction and be professional, it was just not possible.
Cash was a delicious CEO with a wife, let's not forget he is married but let's not let our professional faces fool you. No one ever has a perfect marriage but only you and your spouse know what's going on behind closed doors.
I loved that Cash held out as much as he could when it came down to Jules but he knew that no matter what he tried, he just couldn't stay away from her. His attraction to her was too strong and with the things happening in his personal life, it seemed like it was just driving him more and more towards doing something he didn't want to do.
Jules was a magnificent heroine. She was pretty strong and held off as much as she could. She didn't want to repeat what happened to her back home in Oklahoma. She wanted a fresh, clean start with no drama or married men involved. But sometimes life throws those curve balls at you that you don't expect and that's what happened to Cash and Jules.
I loved the whole mystery this book left off on and I'm hoping we get the 2nd book much quicker than the first. I am totally smitten with Cash and Jules' story.
5 star read!
