Review: Inside Affair by Ella Frank

Oh Sweet Cheese and Crackers….

I’ve only recently started reading MM romances and I can’t explain why, but I love them.  Maybe it’s the idea of love overcoming ALL – even what someone believed was their sexual orientation.   Or maybe that in most same sex love stories – as in life, I’m sure,  the couples have to deal with more adversity and prejudice than straight couples.  Same-sex couples often face real issues, like fear of violence from hate crimes, fear of rejection from friends and families, fear of job-loss, etc.   But if the couple can work through it – then love really does conquer all…Who knows, maybe I’m more of a romantic than I thought…

Inside Affair Teaser

Inside Affair is the story of Xander and Sean.  Xander is a famous journalist who anchors the national news for a major TV network. ( I don’t know whether Ella Frank had him in mind when she wrote the character – but in my mind he looks EXACTLY like Anderson Cooper.)  Sean is a rough-around -the edges cop, who grew up with Xander – Sean’s brother Bailey and Xander are best friends. 

 Xander has a stalker, and his network bosses insist that he get a bodyguard until the creep can be caught.  Craving some control over the situation, Xander goes to Sean. Initially it was to get a reference for a security firm, but Sean ends up insisting that he take on the job personally.  In order to ensure the stalker is caught and not just pushed underground by the presence of a bodyguard, Sean has to pretend to be Xander’s boyfriend. 

They end up living together in Xander’s stunning penthouse overlooking Chicago’s city lights and Lake Michigan.  Over the time they spend together the sexual attraction sparks and simmers – but they are both twisted around with doubt about whether their feelings are real – or just brought on by the intense circumstances they are living in. 

“Slow burn” doesn’t even BEGIN to cover the smoldering sexual tension between the two..  And the book ends before it can REALLY light up and catch fire in earnest.  But the anticipation of what comes next – for both the characters AND the readers – is hopefully going to make the end result even more explosive!  Man Alive, I CAN NOT wait for Books 2 and 3!!
