seriously romantic: casual affair by melanie munton

bea paxton is a commitment-phobe. she also likes to be in control of most situations, mostly to ensure that she can find a way out if she needs to, but also because she gave up something important for someone else once and it turned out to be a sacrifice for the wrong reasons. an ex-boyfriend who valued her only for her connections to her father, and not because he loved her. this lesson has colored her life ever since, and she's kept men at bay, enjoying the pleasures of their company but nothing with real emotion.

when she meets zane price in casual affair, her world is thrown off-kilter. the way she reacts to him isn't normal. he puts her on edge, even as he infuriates her with his need to control every detail and decision of their project. zane finds that he can't keep away from bea. he wants her, not just in bed, he wants something more. he never really thought he'd be able to open up to anyone the way he has with bea, but he recognizes her as a flight risk. and struggles with the right amount of openness about his feelings and his own need to dominate and control everything.

the push and pull between bea and zane feels real. they both have reasons for being protective of their hearts, but those reasons are also the reason that they can connect at such a visceral level. from the moment they met, there was that spark, they were kindred spirits, and in one another there is a chance for true happiness. they just have to get past those demons.

**casual affair will publish july 24, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/entangled publishing (brazen) in exchange for my honest review.
