In Hollywood, the only thing rarer than a snowstorm is a faithful spouse. High-powered screenwriter James Thicke thinks his wife, movie star Regina Baptiste, is the exception—so he doesn’t hesitate to write a steamy part for her in his latest film, one that tests the boundaries of on-screen sexuality.
But James’ faith in his wife is shaken when a scandalous sex video suddenly sets the gossip machine abuzz. It seems Regina was filming a hot love scene with buff leading man Johnny “Handsome” Bergs when the “acting” got out of hand—and it’s all over the Internet for everyone to see.
In a fit of rage, the impulsive James succumbs to his violent inclinations and beats Johnny senseless. He goes on the run, trailed by police and paparazzi alike. Meanwhile, Regina’s accidental affair has made her more famous than ever before—but she’s been seduced by cocaine and now she’s threatened by a blackmailer. As their marriage crumbles under the weight of lust and lies, James faces a difficult choice: Protect his wife from herself…or get revenge.
Eric Jerome Dickey is back to doing what he does best—sensuous storytelling packed with high-intensity action and peopled with complex, unforgettable characters.

Normally I get lost in EJD's books and it fascinates me, this was really good to me but I was expecting more from him. But it's a great read to me!
I have read almost everything that EJD has written and with most of his books, I had a hard time putting them down. They were page turners. However, this one was horrible! I must agree with many of the other readers, this one one of his worst works. I had a hard time getting through it. It was boring and incredulous. I won't give up on EJD. He is still one of my favorites, but my recommendation on this one is to just SKIP IT!
Okay, I finished the book today. The book came alive in Chapter 23, this is when the book STARTS. Although it was very boring getting to that point, I'm glad I kept reading. In the end good job EJD!!!
I'm only 165 pages in but it's taken me about a month to get there. I'm a huge fan of EJD, I've read all his books, so I'm used to his writing being a little bit all over the place and way to detailed. However, this book is boring and it's never taken me this long to read one of his books. I will finish reading it because although it's boring it is a good story. I liken it to Tyler Perry's latest movie Temptation, great story told in a boring way.
This my 1st EJD book and my last.This book is boring and just plain bad. I've been reading it for 3 weeks and have deceided to let someone tell about the ending.Apparently I should have chosen some of his earlier work to start with. Don't waste your money on this one. Get it from the library!!!
