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.

Over the years I've enjoyed all of your books. Normally, it takes me 2 days to finish.
This one...2 weeks.
I guess you can't win them all...better luck next time.:(
A lot of mindless sex, no plot I could go on and on.

First of all, this book was forced on me and I want my money back!!! I have never read an Eric Jerome Dickey book-however, I have been told time and again that he is an excellent writer. There were so many of his past novels that I had wanted to read and was planning to do so. After this abortion of a novel though, I will never even attempt to read anything by Mr. Dickey. I could only read 3 pages and the whole time I was thinking I want my time back on my life. The book was slow, awkward and the writing style was horrendous! I expected better from a "talented" writer such as Eric Jerome Dickey. What a shame!

This book was a thrown together book. I tried to give Jerome another chance after Pleasure (which really sucked). I won't be spending any more money on your books. I was crazy about you. That's OVER!
Wow!!! I thought that it was just me. I can't get into this book at all. I stop reading after Chasing Destiny,,,,but decided to give him another try. Big Mistake!!!
