Publisher's Summary

James Thicke is a man whose mysterious past runs as deep as his violent streak. He’s channeled the intensity of his soul into twin passions - success as a screenwriter and marriage to movie actress Regina Baptiste. In the midst of filming his latest script, starring Regina and leading man Johnny Bergs, James receives a video of his wife caught in the most compromising of situations. Hours later, the clip of the on-set infidelity has hit the Internet and gone viral in the blogosphere and across all channels of social media. James responds to the affront by savagely attacking Johnny Bergs, and the spectacle has both the paparazzi and the police amassing at the married couple’s estate. James goes on the run, but only as far as the city of Downey, California. As James tries to protect Regina from Hollywood’s underbelly, lust, blackmail, and revenge become his constant companions. Does an accidental affair spell permanent danger?

    "Hmmmmmmm"

    All I can say about this book is that I am sleepy and i think I fell asleep on this book. I don't really like books that start off with the end result and it's up to the reader to find out what happened along the way, in order to understand the end result or where the book is suppose to take you... BOOOOOOO! It was a good story though Mr Dickey but can we get a different beginning that will bring us to the end? This book reminded me of Genevieve and I almost stopped listening to that book after 1 hour into the book. I like this author but this book was a disappointing and I think I am starting to get mad now that I think about it that I even have this book on my list and I got this book as soon as it came out just because of the author... Shaking my head. Some folks may like this type of book and the storyline is great but I feel as if it could have been written in a different way to make it more interesting. Johnny Handsome was a beast though I wish I had me a Mandingo that could turn me out like he did Regina especially if "WE CAN MAKE A MOVIE"...lol. One thing that I learned though was that what comes around will always come back to haunt you and sometimes people try to force KARMA on folks but it's true what they say "What comes around goes around and KARMA has to happen in its own time.

    "Don't Waste Your Points"
    What disappointed you about An Accidental Affair?

    This story was boring and it took way too long to get into the plot. The early chapters was just one boring sex scene after another.


    What was most disappointing about Eric Jerome Dickey’s story?

    The plot


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christopher Lane’s performances?

    Maybe if it was a more interesting story.

    "This is not what I expected from the author"

    I seriously wish I would've read some of the other reviews before wasting a credit on this novel. Typically, I'm captivated by Eric Jerome Dickey's novels from the beginning to end; however, this book lacks everything that I've grown to love about EJD's former projects. It's written and narrated as if it's from the 1950's, but, it's clearly meant to be from today's standpoint.

    "I've read better"

    I enjoyed the narration of the book but this was not my favorite EJD book. I have definitely enjoyed some of his other stories more than this one. Not terrible, just not one of his best in my opinion

    "Not Good"
    What disappointed you about An Accidental Affair?

    Boring plot. Story was hard to follow. This book was not a good a Eric Jerome Dickey's books usually are. I skipped a few chapters because it was boring and kept repeating the same themes over and over.


    Has An Accidental Affair turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christopher Lane’s performances?

    Yes, the reader was fine. The book just wasn't good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom.

    Story
    "Not What I expected"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I haven't read Eric Jerome Dickey in a while, but I loved his early books... Couldn't wait for them to come out! So when I saw one with such an interesting title, I decided to try it.

    This book is completely different from any of his work that I have read... Despite the departure from "African American themed" books, that I kind of expected, there is a "darkness" in this particular book that is unfamiliar and it also reads like one of the old detective novels where the gritty detective who has seen everything is not necessarily a likeable hero, but happens to be in the middle of all of the action anyway.

    If you are looking for a lot of sex and a lot of action, it is here... But there isn't necessarily a lot of storyline and no likeable characters, although there are new characters constantly introduced, none of them other than the main character is developed enough that you really understand them at all. And even when you think you understand the main character and his motives, he does things that make no sense.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have developed the characters more and let them have just ONE personality.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was very good.


    Do you think An Accidental Affair needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, a follow-up book would just be more "jumbled passion" that really leads nowhere.

    This is my first listen my Christopher Lane

    "A TOTAL WASTE OF CREDIT!!"
    What would have made An Accidental Affair better?

    I'm definitely a Eric Jerome Dickey fan but this book was the worst book that I ever listened to thus far and that's saying alot since I'm a avid listener! I can't believe this is writter by E J Dickey..WOW the only reason I gave it one star because the option to rate a book Zero stars was not listed. I didn't even get through 1 hour of this book.


    What was most disappointing about Eric Jerome Dickey’s story?

    Story line and narrator was awful!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better narrator and maybe I would have attempted to listen to the whole book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from An Accidental Affair?

    The beginning! Didn't grab my attention at all.
