When unhappily married thirty-something, Cassie Jones, lands a new job as a marketing manager for an advertising-technology startup, she finally feels she may have a purpose in life beyond looking after her young son, and volatile, ex-Navy husband. But as soon as she meets the company’s enigmatic cofounder and chief engineer, Adam Crossley, Cassie feels powerfully drawn to him, despite the fact he is also married with children.
Cassie is old and wise enough to know that embarking on an affair, with anyone, let alone the cofounder of her new company is a bad idea. But as time goes on, the pair can’t control their feelings for one another, and they fall headlong into an illicit relationship, bringing about potentially devastating repercussions for everyone involved.
Inspired by authors Paula Hawkins, Harriet Lane, and Gillian Flynn.
Praise for The Startup Affair:
“A slow-burn, that takes a while to catch fire, but when it does you won’t be able to put it down…Not your typical romantic suspense, but a reworking of a genre that will certainly benefit from a fresh voice on the scene. Sandra Smith is an original.” – Good Books Today
“An excellent book…,” CT Mitchell, author
