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?

It was okay

I just wanted to hurry up and finish this book, I felt like I wasted my credit. This book is not what I expected from this author. I just didnt too much care for it. Not much else to say.

A Great Story and a Great Read!

An Accidental Affair
First of all, let me say, Eric Jerome Dickey is a wonderful writer.   I always enjoy reading his books. His characters are always multi-layered and interesting people.  They are very well developed, very intriguing and always entertaining. You never end up where you think you might. And even if you do, you can't predict how you will get there because EJD will always throw you off.  I love it!  I wish he would bring out a book more often than what he does. His  writing truly entertains me and takes me to another place, right in the middle of his story.  
The one thing I really like about EJD's books is, you always can come away with a strong moral lesson and the journey to that moral lesson is simply extraordinary.

One dimentional

What disappointed you about An Accidental Affair?

How weak and unplausable the characters and plot was.

What could Eric Jerome Dickey have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Based the story in a more realistic plot. Not make us want to sympathise with characters that are richer and more beautiful than his readers. Not make us want to feel anything for a murderer, a narcicist, a (un-fleshed out) rich antagonist. make a stronger case for bring "driver and Panter" into the story.

What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

He gave each character personality even though the characters, as written, had no depth.

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

It was the cutting that destroyed the novel. There was not enough back story and motivation to drive each character to the extreme behavior they exibited.

Any additional comments?

After reading the Gidion series I was waiting and dying for book 5, Not any more if he is just going to phone it in.

A Little Boring

When The Book First Began I Assumed It Was Boring, Not Enough To Stop Listening Though. I Continued To listen And It Became More And More Hard To Quit Listening. I Loved It.

Keeps your interest the minute the story begins!

What other book might you compare An Accidental Affair to and why?

The Other Woman By Eric Jerome Dickey

It made me not want to stop listening, I finished it in two straight days!

Can not wait for EJD's next book.

You owe us one!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I don't know

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

No, I think Eric was trying to do something different

What three words best describe Christopher Lane’s voice?

He was fine

What character would you cut from An Accidental Affair?

I think they all brought something to the story

Any additional comments?

This story seemed like it could've been an Easy Rowlins story, maybe one of his friends. I love Eric and I appreciate him trying to do something different, I just didn't enjoy this. I was glad they got back together, and I liked that he had his wife's back. It left me feeling that they'd never trust each other again. Give me more Gideon, please! Love you, Ms. G

Not what I expected

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The listen was not a waste of time but not exciting. Rather slow and boring.

If you’ve listened to books by Eric Jerome Dickey before, how does this one compare?

This did not compare, but I was also listening to the Gideon series.

Have you listened to any of Christopher Lane’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
