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.

Surprise, surprise. I was extremely interested in Crosstown Crush when I discovered it revolved around a married couple and the husband’s kink of cuckolding. I expected it to be a hot and kinky good time, and it was. However, I was pleasantly surprised that it’s so much more than that.

Mike and Sam have been married for five years and are at ultimate relationship goal status. Seriously, these two don’t just love each other, they’ve vowed to always be open and honest no matter what. And they actually stick to it! Their level of communication is a beautiful thing, and is something a lot of couples could learn from.

They decided to bring another man into their lives, and Bert was a fantastic addition. Listen, this has some smokin’ hot explicit sex, but it’s deeper than that. It explores intimacy and boundaries in a mature and rational way. Sam and Mike’s marriage is never diminished and they always put each other’s feelings first.

Crosstown Crush is an absolutely wonderful book that yes, is sexy as hell, but is also an outstanding example of how to communicate honestly with your partner about each others desires and needs. I loved it, and now I’m very curious about what the second book will bring.

  1. Wow bringing someone else into your marriage is no joke. I don’t think I’ve read something like this so I would be interested to see how they handled it and with their marriage still good. Great review!

  2. “Sam and Mike’s marriage is never diminished and they always put each other’s feelings first.”

    YES! That was my biggest fear with this kink – that I would end up pitying Mike and getting angry at Samira for being with someone else, but it was all handled so well. Really looking forward to where this series goes in book 2!

  3. Half of me is saying, ‘Ohhhh, that’s what THAT means’, the other is saying ‘Why would you get married if you wanted to invite someone else into the martial bed, consensual or not’. It definitely sounds hot though. Even though this isn’t my cup of tea, I certainly know where to come for those raunchy recommendations Christy. Wonderful review <3 <3
