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.
 I loved how well written this book was.

Cara McKenna is a phenomenal writer and storyteller.

I read this book slowly so I could savor every moment.

Crosstown Crush broached a very "taboo"topic that I have yet to see attempted in similar books from this genre. Not only that, but I am thankful for the angle from which McKenna approached telling the story.

Crosstown Crush explores the marital relationship between Sam and Mike. Specifically their sexual relationship.

Mike has a sexual "kink" that needs attention, and his wife is more than willing to fulfill it. However, as Sam and Mike explore this sexual kink, Sam discovers that she may have one of her own.

I loved the way McKenna was able to tell this story in a very positive and respectful way. It was a true exploration of how a married couple explores their sexuality through mutual love and trust.

The story is set at a very slow pace, which made it wholly believable, and I appreciated that beyond measure. However, even though the pacing of the story was slow, I never wanted to put the book down. I just wanted to keep reading to see how everything was going to unfold for Sam and Mike, and also Bern.
