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.

I don't know what kind of mood my man was in when he wrote this book... This was not good.... Not the usually fantasy... This was too much like every day life... Lies, manipulation, cheating, mistrust and the only fantasy part is getting rid of your enemy... Lustful fantasy, passion, over the top was missing in this book.. REDO

I am a HUGE fan of EJD but this Accidental Affair...um NOT so much I usually read a book within 2 days but it took me 2wks to read this HORRIBLE book. Uuugh I am so disappointed. Uuugh
I enjoyed this book. It was different and it was a little slow in the beginning but it did keep my attention & towards the end...couldn't put it down. I just knew that there was more to it than it really was. The ending wasn't spectacular. But this is not really the type of book to have a sequel so I won't complain. I enjoyed it. Not the best, but not the worst.
I started an online book club among my friends and made the mistake of making this book our first book to read! Hardly anyone finished the book because it was just unbearable! I felt like I was in school again, where I had to force myself to read a book because I had to, smh!
Will someone please tell us how this ends because I can't read anymore. I am an EJD fan and bought the book w/o reading the reviews. The worse book I've ever read. Everytime I buy a book w/o looking at the reviews, I'm disappointed because These reviews are actually very helpful and always on point. I won't make that mistake again.
