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?

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.

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.

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.

Something different from Eric Jerome Dickey

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Although I like the fact the Eric Jerome Dickey attempted something outside of his norm with this story, I can't say that I loved it. The story was just okay to me and some parts were just unrealistic.

What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

I thought the narrator, Christopher Lane, did a great job with the different character's voices.

Was An Accidental Affair worth the listening time?

I wish I would have selected another EJD book.

SEXY SEXY

Any additional comments?

I have read or listened to ALL of EJD'S BOOKS!! Iv'e enjoyed them all..I have noticed that Sex is very prominate and descriptive in his works for the past few years! I ain't complaining you just need not listen aloud in your car! I have forgotten myself & rolled down my window & a few HOT description of sexy narration escaped for all to hear!

That said, sometimes sex does overtake the story line. In this story I didn't particularly care for the characters ( too superficial Hollywood types) but the Sex scenes were Hot!!

Can't wait til the next book, different characters I hope...I'll have my glass of wine ready!!
