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?

The story was a tad bit difficult to follow at times so I had to go back every now and again to see what I missed and how the story got from point A to point B. But I love Eric Jerome Dickey and this book was not what I was expecting (in a good way)
OMG Christopher Lane was AMAZING! I have listened to quite a few books on audible and many of the narrators are boring or do not try to bring anything to the characters. Christopher Lane brought this book to life for me! I will listen to other books her narrates for sure!
This book made me laugh out loud and at one part I was very involved in the story! I felt like a fly on the wall during a very juicy argument
This book was very interesting. It has a lot of turns and twist. The narrator is very good. A lot of steamy scenes which were mainly at the beginning. Wanted to get to the action but it finally came. Great book overall
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.
Maybe if it was a more interesting story.
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 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
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.
Yes, the reader was fine. The book just wasn't good.
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.
I would have developed the characters more and let them have just ONE personality.
The narration was very good.
No, a follow-up book would just be more "jumbled passion" that really leads nowhere.
Yes... I am on the road most of the time and its really great.
Driver and James Thicke...i love both characters, the way and how they look at things are crzay cool.
This is my first listen my Christopher Lane
