This book was extremely well written and the story was the complete opposite of what I expected. The cover said sweet contemporary romance and whilst it was, there was also intrigue, suspicion and heartbreak as the story crosses countries and continents as the characters fight to find their HEAs.
If you don't like stories about cheating then don't even pick this book up. Whilst telling the story of an affair, it is not wholly about selfish, gratuitous feelings but more of hope in the face of desperation as Mischa tries to find a way out of a loveless marriage. Whilst the way she went about it is wrong, and acknowledged so by the writer in the story, it is a portrayal of possibilities beyond the four walls of a perceived perfect marriage.
Given the opportunity to head to Italy for work, Mischa quickly sees this as an opportunity to experience more out of life. With a plan for a one night stand; a quick release in order to feel again, Mischa doesn't expect what she finds in Tal. Saving her from herself, he quickly assumes the role of lover and gives Mischa everything she ever wanted from her husband, and more.
Whilst you expect the story to meander between these two characters as they find themselves in each other you wonder where the plot will head to and then you take a journey down an completely unexpected path into one of deceit, violence and corruption as Mischa quickly realises that her business trip isn't what she expected it to be.
As expected, once the affair becomes public, Mischa's husband doesn't take the news well and Mischa's story becomes one of heartbreak as she is spurned by her friends and family. Eventually with Tal’s charms and easygoing way about him, Mischa's friends and family, and even her ex-husband, come to realise that what they have is more than simply a frivolous affair.
It's been awhile since I've wanted to re-read a story straight away and that's how I have been left feeling after finishing this book. It blew me away with the strength of the storyline, the characters and the emotion it portrayed. My Time In The Affair has left me wanting so much more from this amazing writer.
While sitting in her hotel bar, Mischa is confronted by an obnoxious guy who just won't take no for an answer, when she is rescued by the Handsome Tal, sparks start to fly and panties begin to melt, it doesn't take long for Mischa to fall for Tal
As they get more serious Mischa realises that Tal is holding his own secrets, as the secrets begin to unravel we find out just what Tal has been hiding and OMG I did not see it coming.
I really enjoyed this book it had everything shocks, twists, love, Damn Hot Sex and a very Hot, Panty melting, Sex God. What more do you need???
I wasn't too sure about Tal at first, there was just something "off" about him. Then we clicked and oh man, I absolutely fell hook line and sinker for him, he dazzled me as much as he did Mischa! Add to that a fantastic heroine and match made in heaven.
This is ultimately a book about deliberate cheating, and I loved every single word. I don't have issues with reading about cheating, but when it's done as well as Fantome has done it here - genius! And I'm just gonna add that Mikey was a total and absolute limp coward with zero bakcbone - and a user to boot - and I had no sympathy for him whatsoever. Both Mischa and Mikey are to blame for the marriage breakdown, though I attribute most of the blame to Mikey.
I did think the ending was rather rushed, and given the shaky foundation their romance was built on I really wanted a longer, meatier epilogue which is why this didn't quite make 5 stars.

This is my first time reading Stylo’s work although I am aware of her Degradation series and the great reviews they get. So naturally was curious about this and I always like to start with a standalone. I have to say I quite like the style of this authors work and really did enjoy MTIT. The second half of this book appealed to me so much more than the first half due to the pace and the direction that the story took. I finished it wishing the whole book could have been like that all the way through. We start off with a relationship between a husband and wife going south and an affair ensuing. But what we ended up with was a little bit more than that story due to Tal, the man that Mischa has the affair with.
It’s a risky subject to write about, a lot of readers express their dislike at cheating and affairs etc. but I think that this was handled with real honesty. This plot line doesn’t keep me away from a good book. It wasn’t a story where feelings were spared and I immensely enjoyed that angle to it. I did feel a little uncomfortable around the beginning of the book, going through Mischa’s feelings for her husband, because let’s face it, some things she thought I’m sure many other women have thought too. It often mirrors our own real lives in some particular way. And that hits a little too close to home.
I didn’t write any review notes for this as I found it captivated me enough for it to be a straight through read. Good story, great reveal of Tal over two scenes which I very much appreciated, it didn’t come all at once so you had that suspenseful wait knowing something was off. The scene with Mischas husband at the beach and beyond is quite impactful and I found this was the first of many shock scenes to come despite them being rather late in the book. I would recommend this, it’s a good read that’s a little bit different…and oh, if you don’t like cheating, this is not for you I’m afraid.
