Blog Tour Review & Giveaway ~ My Time In The Affair by Stylo Fantôme

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.

Where are we going?” she breathed when she realized they weren't heading out of the hotel.
Tal didn't answer. They were heading towards a bank of elevators, and one had just opened up, depositing a group of people into the lobby. He picked up his pace, practically dragging her into the lift.
He let go of her and she lost her balance, stumbling into a corner. By the time she righted herself, he'd pressed a floor button. When she turned around, he was back up against her, flattening her against the wall. She held her breath, staring up at him. It was the best lighting she'd seen him – he really did have super dark eyes. Black whirlpools, intense as they swallowed her whole.
I never stood a chance.
God, you tasted good,” he groaned, lowering his mouth to her neck.
Tal … we can't … I'm …,” she struggled for air. For thought.
In another country, looking for something you aren't getting at home,” he finished for her as his hands swept over her hips.
Am I that transparent?
That doesn't mean I'm going to -,” she ended in a gasp when his hands slid down to her butt and gripped her, hard.
Yes, it does.”
No, I'm not -,”
Yes, you are.”
Please,” she whined. He chuckled.
You'll be saying that a lot more tonight.”
When his hands moved up to her breasts, she felt like she was going to jump right out of her skin – she actually jerked to the side involuntarily, her body so shocked by the contact. She started shivering and his hands stopped moving.
My husband is the only one who's touched me like this in eight years,” she whispered. There was a long pause.
I'm willing to bet it's been a long time since anyone has touched you like this, period,” Tal called her out as the pressure from his hands increased, pushing her breasts together.
How do you know these things? How do you know me?” she asked. He finally lifted his head, looking down at her.
I'm a very observant person, Mischa,” he sounded serious.
She felt like shit.
I don't know how to be this kind of woman,” she said, her voice small. He chuckled.
I'll teach you.

She felt trapped. Suffocated, yet alone. This is not a subject a woman can talk about with her friends, especially when she'd already expressed her own distaste of cheaters. Hello, hypocrite. How could she explain that to anyone?

I fell in love with this author all the way back when I first read degradation and I've never looked back. One of my favorite things about her is the way her stories always jump way outside of the box, she writes anything but cookie-cutter characters or plots and we always gets tons of dirty hot sex, lots of drama, emotion and tears. This was her first venture outside of the Kane Trilogy and I absolutely loved it. Now, this book DOES involve cheating-lots and lots of steamy hott cheating-if the title doesn't give that away than Ms. Stylo's multiple warnings in the synopsis should be a good warning-so if you have issues with cheating, I honestly would still recommend reading this (cause it's just that awesome) just proceed with caution.

Tal … we can't … I'm …,”
In another country, looking for something you aren't getting at home”
“That doesn't mean I'm going to-,”
Yes, it does.”
“No, I'm not-,”
“Yes, you are.”
“You'll be saying that a lot more tonight.”

While this was about cheating, it wasn't a subject that was taken lightly.
Mischa isn't a little trollop galloping through men, yes she cheats on her husband but she doesn't jump into that decision-it's something she struggles with throughout the book, even after the fact. Her character seemed so real, so easy to connect to, she could be anyone you know, she could be you. That's where a lot of the emotion in the book came through, she wasn't a bad person she just made some bad choices and suffered the consequences-both self inflicted and from outside sources.
Mike I was on the fence with. I felt bad for him, I really did, but at the same time... he was almost as responsible for what happened as Mischa.
Now Tal was a force unto himself. That man was Alpha to the extreme (Stylo is fab at delivering up those kinds of men). Protective, possessive, sexy-as-hell, king of the dirty talk, mysterious and just all around smokin hott. He was a man who knew what he wanted and went after it, he knew what he was getting into and made no excuses for it.
This book had me entranced from start to finish, there were so many layers, so much mystery, so much deception, twists and surprises, with lots of spicy steam and tears along the way. There was no cliffhanger but there was an HEA-I just won't tell you who gets it ;)
in the end, this book just proved once again why Stylo Fantôme in all her dirty glory will always hold a spot on my One-Click-Addiction List and I urge anyone who has not read on of her books to go out and give them a try.

Never forget. Always remember. And when you do remember, when you're ready.... come find me.”

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.
