Inside Affair, the first in an all-new contemporary MM series from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank is available now!
If I had to describe Sean Bailey, it would be: a surly, temperamental pain in my ass. Never in that equation would I ever include the word boyfriend—and not just because he’s straight.
The older brother of my life-long best friend, Sean is a detective for the Chicago PD, and is also known as Detective “Dick” for being…well, a surly, temperamental pain in everyone’s ass. He also happens to be the best they have, which is why I find myself on his doorstep the night my life is threatened by an anonymous stalker.
I only wanted the name of a bodyguard; I didn’t expect for Sean to volunteer for the job. Now, not only do I have a bodyguard, I also have a fake boyfriend.
It must be so hard to be Alexander Thorne, the number one prime-time news anchor in the country, with millions of dollars and a car that costs more than my house. I mean, I’m allowed to give him a hard time about it, but when some creep decides to cross the line and go after him, they’re gonna have to answer to me.
Going undercover has never been an issue in the past, so I don’t see why there’d be a problem now. Xander and I have known each other for years, so this should be a breeze. Except suddenly my stomach’s flipping when he looks my way, and my body comes alive whenever he brushes by me. I know I’m good at my job and playing a character and all, but this is getting out of hand.
I can’t be sure that either of us are playing anymore.

** ARC KINDLY PROVIDED IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW **
Inside Affair made my heart race to no end. I enjoyed so much watching the sparks fly between Xander and Sean; opposites that definitely attract, you had known each other for years without really noticing the other. That was more bickering and lecturing, a dynamic that worked for both of us until the moment Xander was threatened and needed a bodyguard.
That moment is going to change all their vision about the other, when the close proximity brought things to another level.
I had to warm up to Xander because he felt a bit so out of the world, with his shining car, luxurious life totally contrasting with his job, a different man on the field, composed, professional and passionate. He was a bit too soft to my taste, I don’t know, probably I’ve expecting more power that came with his lifestyle, but still his sweetness moved me, being now scared of this stalker, feeling unsafe unless Sean was with him.
Sean is the opposite in so many levels and that’s why it was so interesting to see the u-turn of their relationship, and finally see past this angst fog. Because these two couldn’t have a proper conversation without ticking the other, and especially Sean making fun of Xander. As a detective he used to go undercover and protect people so when Xander asked for help, this sudden protectiveness he felt towards a man who was so far from his world upset him in the first place, but he was on mission. Being his fake boyfriend.
Trust me, things get very interesting.
The tables have turned slowly, intensely and it gave me all the butterflies.
I appreciated the main characters chemistry and how natural they came to this new affection, when they learned to know each other, building this intense slow burn, scorching hot and also this sweetness and tenderness that made me swoon tons.
It was interesting to see Xander and Sean evolving out of their comfort zone, trying to find the one who was threatening Xander and bringing their relationship to another level, and the author managed perfectly to convey their emotions, Sean for his confused feelings but totally in tune with his heart, and for the Xander who took a new place in his heart, aware of his presence, this intense pull he couldn’t get rid of even if he tried.
There was a really promising first installment. It took a long time to get the characters to be on the same page. I freaking loved it but I wish I could have more chapters to conclude their story not two other books to drive me freaking insane because cliffy!!!!
I couldn’t put it down, there was a bit of action, two charismatic heroes (I had such a crush for Sean), a strong sexual tension, sweet and tender at the same time and I so wanted to see the extent of their new building relationship. Next book please!!
