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 was very happy to see the new book come out, but this book was very weird, it took me a loong time to read this book, but the ending was "what for real" i hope the next one is much better and back to normal
I'm a huge Eric Jerome Dickey fan. Couldn't wait to read the new book. And I must say it is different from his prevoius books. It takes me no time to finish a book and this book, um, well, it took me awhile. I really wasn't that interested in what happened on the next page. I was glad I finished it. The book wasn't bad at all, just um, different.
I really haven't read this author books too much...but with the media hype, I thought I would give it a chance. It was different...some parts funny, some parts unbeliveable, but mostly strange for my taste.
This book was HORRIBLE!!!! It was very slow in the beginning and it made no sense to add some of the extra characters. I want my money back on this book!!!
EJD does it again with this book...yeah it is a little different sytle than his earlier books..but who doesn't evolve right!?!? It does get really good and interesting towards the end! As always, this is a HIT and it does deliver. Not as hot and steamy as some may like to see from EJD but overall I can't stop reading EJD- #FAN4LIFE!
