K B Mallion - A Famous Affair (The Fame Series #1)

*Contains adult themes
**Review by Susan

Jessica Neel is a happily married, working mother who is content in life. When she literally bumps into the gorgeous, charismatic and very famous actor, Jonny Riley. Her life is thrown into a passionate and problematic affair. Her life becomes embroiled in a secret entanglement of adultery, love, lies, guilt and tragedy. Will the love for her husband and daughters be enough to resist the charms of the captivating A lister.... Jonny Riley?

A Famous Affair was an emotional story. For all the characters involved. It did take me some time to get into the book, maybe because of the emotive affair and feeling torn for what lay ahead of Jessica. It's hard being won around by a character you're still learning about but Kim does this so brilliantly. I think because she spends the time on that it was hard to get my head and heart around. Hence why the start took me so long to read. But once I got my head around the fact that Jessica was in fact doing what was best and going with her heart I loved her dearly. 

The heartache placed on the pair despite excruciating circumstances would be enough to break some...but they survived and showed the world that they would be okay. 

"A feeling of peace and serenity surrounds us, with the knowledge that our once passionate affair is now a passionate love."

The love that Jessica and Jonny share is overflowing. It hurt knowing how much pain she had been through and the doubts she had in her mind about what she left behind. It wasn't an unhappy marriage but that wasn't tested until "destiny" brought them together and they found one another. A path they wouldn't return from and never would. They would get their happily ever after right?! 

"If only I could capture this special moment and put it in my pocket. All of those present have in some way travelled along with me on my journey and contributed towards my being here beside Jonny...happy, content, loved and in love."

We see the pair thrown into the public eye with all sorts of things thrown at them but they face it together. But when Jonny receives a call to take a new job, a job that could set his future career would the pair manage to survive it?

"The love that we share is unrivalled, incomparable and insurmountable.  We both tried to stop it from happening but it was futile.  Right or wrong, it happened.  Now I can't imagine my life without him in it."

An awesome read but bear with might be a hard read to get into but it's worth it. The story of how Jessica pieces her life together with the love of her life, celebrity or not, is a brilliant story. Full of heartbreak, loss,  physical attractive and overflowing love and adoration. A brilliant base for the follow on...

It did leave me high and dry! The ending was a cliffhanger I wasn't expecting but I eagerly await book 2!
