The Affair: Week 1 by Beth Kery

A young woman’s quiet life is upended when she meets the man of her forbidden dreams in the startling new novel from New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery. The Affair begins…

The Affair Week One

Innocent yet unconventional hospice nurse Emma Shore has secured a new position at The Breakers, the sprawling mansion of enigmatic and dangerously handsome racecar billionaire Michael Montand. Hired as caretaker for Montand’s stepmother, Emma expects few complications. But one night, lost in the mansion’s maze of corridors, she comes upon a woman and a man she can’t identify engaged in a raw, naked interlude of sexual subjugation. Silently, from the shadows, Emma watches—shocked, appalled, and unnervingly aroused.

But Emma wonders… if this mysterious stranger is not Montand, then who is it? And what other surprises are in store for her? Night after sleepless night, she’s considering the possibilities. And for the first time in her life, she’s not going to run away from them.

MrsNorthman's Review
This first installment set-up what seems like a really great story. I'm intrigued to see what Week Two has in store for Emma and Michael.

Emma is sweet, kind and really laidback. She's one of a few hospice nurses caring for the stepmother of a billionaire, Michael Montand. His house is breathtaking, but the situation is a little mysterious. She's never seen or had any direct interaction with Mr. Montand. Rumor has it he's cold and selfish.

One night Emma forgoes the house rules in search of a washing machine. What she ends up seeing, changes something in her. But she never sees the man's face, just his body and his total domination. So was it Mr. Montand?

She's sure she's been busted for spying when Mr. Montand summons her the next day, but he actually wants to reprimand her for breaking one of the other rules. What neither of them expected was the spark that ignited between them.

MrsLeif's Review

This is a serial.
Emma Shore is a hospice nurse. Her latest job takes her to the house of Michael Montand. Her patient is Michael’s stepmother and she and her stepson don’t seem to get along.
While looking for a place to do the laundry around the mansion, Emma is witness to something that changes her.  Later on, she finds herself intrigued by Montand.

Week 2 goes further in their relationship. Michael and Emma seem to be unable to stay away from each other. Their chemistry was off the charts. 

I liked Emma. She was a no nonsense kind a girl. She is strong despite her sister hurting her.  She stands up for herself and doesn’t coward to Michael.  Michael is still a mystery. He’s hiding so much. His hot and cold behavior bothers me but not enough to stop reading.
I can’t wait to read the next installment.
