The bit on the back…
Emma and Montand's exhilarating vacation in France takes them from the glamour of a luxury yacht to the dangerous thrill ride of the Montand Grand Prix, but it's the daring new levels of intimacy they share that leave Emma breathless. Their decadent getaway affords Emma insights into Montand she never anticipated when she learns more of the truth about his damaged childhood, his volatile relationship with his father, and the woman groomed to be Montand's substitute mother. Emma longs to help him fight his demons and end his suffering, but how can she, when his anger and guilt won't let him forgive his stepmother...or more importantly, himself?
There's a storm on the horizon, but for now, there's sun-drenched sweetness and the naked truth in each other's arms. Their days together are drawing to a close, giving every touch, every kiss, every moment of sensual submission and possession a wild, desperate intensity. They only have the moment so Emma and Montand surrender to it with total abandon.
Firstly, thank you to Headline Eternal for approving me for a review copy of this book via NetGalley!
So we are now on week 7 of The Affair! I have enjoyed each week so far but I think this might be my favourite week!
This week the race is set to go ahead in France and now that the couple are there together there is a sense of glamour, adrenaline and also desperation in the air! I love the setting and it definitely lends its glamour and luxury to the racing scene. I also loved that Emma was whisked into this by Vanni and took it on like a pro!
The air of desperation comes from the characters themselves as the time limit on their relationship looms ever close and I loved that live in the moment, seize every minute like it’s the last element of their relationship.
This is by far the most explicit of the series so far but don’t let that put you off or cloud the real love between the characters which is getting too strong to ignore! I am really enjoying this serial but the penultimate week has really kicked it up a gear!
