The first in a new series from the “wicked-hot”* author of Hard Time and Give It All explores the fantasies of a daring married couple—and those of a stranger invited to play along in their scandalous little games… When he’s working, Mike Heyer is all business—every inch the alpha male, with the hard, capable body to back up his persona. But at home he can be a different man entirely, harboring appetites only his wife gets to glimpse…
When Samira first learned of her husband’s fantasies, she was reluctant, even alarmed. But after witnessing the way they set him on fire, she yielded, and happily indulged. As their games have intensified, so has the rush. And now so has the risk—they’re poised to take Mike’s indecent desires to the next level, by opening their bed to a sexy, brazen stranger. A man seeming custom-made to grant every last one of Mike and Samira’s sinful wishes.
Welcoming someone new into their lives was always a dangerous proposition, but the couple imagined if anything was at stake, it was their privacy…not their hearts. *New York Times Bestselling Author Jaci Burton


This was one of those books where you should know up front that it is not going to be for every reader. Even if you read a lot of erotica, it still may not be for you. The reason being is because Crosstown Crush explores the sexual fetish known as cuckolding. If you don’t know what cuckolding is and are curious then google it. I won’t delve into this particular kink in depth, however, it centers around demasculation and humiliation. I think readers will be extremely turned on or completely turned off by the subject matter of this erotic story.

Not sure what it says about me, but I enjoyed this book. I think I am a pretty open-minded person and can appreciate others’ sexual fantasies even if I do not exactly understand it. Crosstown Crush’s plot centers around sexual encounters. It is completely straight-up erotica. I thought the book was very, very hot. It doesn’t have too many emotional feels and that’s okay by me every now and then. If I am being totally honest this book was pornographic, in my opinion.

If you are looking for something super steamy and willing to step out of your comfort zone as far as kinky fuckery goes, then Crosstown Crush may tickle your fancy.
