Publisher's Summary

Inside Affair is book one of the Prime Time Series trilogy and must be listened to in order.

Xander

If I had to describe Sean Bailey, it would be: A surly, temperamental pain in my ass. Never in that equation would I ever include the word boyfriend - and not just because he’s straight.

The older brother of my life-long best friend, Sean is a detective for the Chicago PD, and is also known as Detective “Dick” for being...well, a surly, temperamental pain in everyone’s ass. He also happens to be the best they have, which is why I find myself on his doorstep the night my life is threatened by an anonymous stalker.

I only wanted the name of a bodyguard; I didn’t expect for Sean to volunteer for the job. Now, not only do I have a bodyguard, I also have a fake boyfriend.

Sean

It must be so hard to be Alexander Thorne, the number one prime-time news anchor in the country, with millions of dollars and a car that costs more than my house. I mean, I’m allowed to give him a hard time about it, but when some creep decides to cross the line and go after him, they’re gonna have to answer to me.

Going undercover has never been an issue in the past, so I don’t see why there’d be a problem now. Xander and I have known each other for years, so this should be a breeze. Except suddenly my stomach’s flipping when he looks my way, and my body comes alive whenever he brushes by me. I know I’m good at my job and playing a character and all, but this is getting out of hand.

I can’t be sure that either of us are playing anymore.

That cliffhanger...hmm.

Overall good read. Narrator was great. That ending could've given more though, but it was done that way to get you to read the next one. I don't feel compelled to read the sequel though.

Oh my god!!

This was really good but it ends in a cliffhanger. Be prepared for big emotions.

Great start to a new series!

Ella has done it again, I loved this book and I am hooked! I started reading and then listened to the audiobook. I have to say, Charlie David did a great job. He really made me hear the sophistication of Xander and made Sean sound like a regular blue collar guy. There is a great push pull between these guys and a lot of good banter. I can’t wait to get more and I’m excited for more interaction with Henri and Bailey.

Slow, slow burn

I am a huge fan of Ella Frank, but this book left me confused. I really like the premise, but the execution is unexpected. The MC’s did not have the chemistry I am used to from her. I was turned off by Xander’s constant berating of Shawn. The attraction did not culminate until the last hour.

Charlie David gave a stellar performance as always.

Sean and Xander brought to life by Charlie David!

Ella Frank did it again with this amazing story. As if was not enough that Sean and Xander are both incredibly hot, add Charlie David's voice and it becomes over the top hot. Loved the story of 2 people who knew each other most of their lives, but add in some fear and tragedy and they finally "notice" each other. Can't wait to get my hands on the next book in this series.

Fantastic start to a great new series!

Oh my goodness! How much do I love Xander and Sean! These two are perfect for each other. I love how the forced close proximity allows them to see what they’ve been missing for years. I love how Sean becomes both a protector physically and an emotional touchstone and rock for Xander to lean on when everything is falling apart and his life and security are thrown out of his control. I can’t wait for the next installment. Bring on book 2!

Wow. Blinding! 🤩

Sweet mother mercy on air wearing a tutu!! Another new series from Ella Frank and it didn’t disappoint! She’s taking us into a glimpse of the world of live broadcasting. It’s fascinating the details she’s written into Xander’s world. A complete contrast of Sean’s.

This book got me on the feels. The tension between Sean and Xander has been there since the initial phone call. Just like both of them, I was really starting to think “how could these two get together??” But then again, there’s always a fine line between attraction and animosity, or so they say.

It was something to watch these two’a relationship switch gears, gradually but I gotta give it to Sean, when he’s in, he’s all in. It’s refreshing to meet a character who even if he’s unsure, he doesn’t push and pull. It’s what I love most about Xander and Sean’s budding relationship.. it’s the cautionary stop, but there’s no hot or cold. It’s smooth and no unnecessary angst inner monologue.

The sexual tension and attraction is so thick, you can cut it with a knife. The steamy scenes on this book isn’t as much (yet) compared to Ella’s previous books, but it doesn’t mean there isn’t one in this book.

I’m dying to see what’s in for us on the next book. The ending got me all teary and twisted because only Ella Frank would simultaneously make us swoon and weepy AND royally make us exercise patience because July isn’t here soon enough. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Charlie David’s narration is just awesome on this one. He’s one of my favorites and well, his performance on this book is another a reason for that. 👍🏼

Frenemy’s to lovers romance.

Holy Hell ELLA!!!! How could you end it like that??
I absolutely loved this slow burn frenemy to lovers story. I was rooting for Sean all the way through. I didn’t like Xander so much at the beginning but he grew me when he started to accept that his feelings for Sean was changing. Sean was super sweet with Xander and once he made his mind up about them he totally made me swoon. I loved Charlie David’s narration as always. I can’t wait for the second book to be released after leaving us on such a big cliffhanger, just hoping that Sean and Xander get the hea that they both deserve.
