Publisher's Summary

It was only supposed to be a vacation romance. Passionate, exciting - and short-lived. But when Jewel Henley arrived for her first day of work at a new job, she realized her exotic lover was in fact Piers Anetakis, her boss. A boss who had a strict rule about not getting involved with his employees. And so, just like that, Jewel was fired. With no money and no job, Jewel doubted it could get any worse. Then she discovered she was pregnant and that she'd have to confront Piers. Piers stormed back into her life with the same passion and intensity that had swept her off her feet five months before. But as loving as he was with her, she knew he still didn't trust her. And until he did, all they had was an affair.

Unexceptional

I'd hate to say "The Affair" was a waste of time but I couldn't identify with the characters. I really don't know why. It may have been the narration; the way it was presented or the content. I just couldn't relate.

So so.

Dislike the narrator. Her male voice sounded like she had a sore throat. It distracted from the book. Was able to finish the book but left disappointed.

The narrator ruined it for me

The narrator ruined the story for me. Her male voices sound like she has a sore throat and distracts too much. The story is nice and steamy. I read it on kindle format and liked it a lot but couldn’t finish the audible one.

Do any women in Maya Banks' books have spines?

Warning: spoilers.
I tried to like this book and I hoped that it would be better than the first two, where the men were terrible to the women and frankly never really redeemed themselves. And the women just took it! This one, however, took the cake. He unapologetically manipulated and cajoled her at every turn. He punished her for his own past that had nothing to do with her more than once. Like his brothers before him, he immediately jumped to conclusions without bothering to get the full story. I get the whole brooding hero concept but this went beyond that. I cannot recommend unless you want to find yourself screaming over and over "what is WRONG with you?! He didn't even actually apologize!"

Narration so so

The story has great promise, but only if an actual guy narrates Pearce' part. For someone who was described as being a good looking man, it was extremely difficult for me to believe that going on how the narration of him sounds, which to me, is awful. Pick a better narrator and you'll have a more believable lead man.

Love?

After 20 chapters of being pulled away and drawn toward love the happy ending was amazing as always when I read or listen to Maya Banks. You are amazing

Good story. Bad narrator.

Enjoyed the story but not the narrator. Did not enjoy the male voice, it sounded it had the flu or something.

Didn't like the narration

I didn't like the fact that one person narrated this whole story. A male should have done the male portion. She sounded like a heavy smoker when doing the male parts. I loved the story line though.
