A Social Affair

A Social Affair: A Novel

                                          3.5 Stars


A cautionary tale about finding love online and the trouble that comes with cheating. Bored with her humdrum married life, thirty-two-year-old Codi Norman is searching for excitement. After teaming up with her best friend, Katina, Codi discovers that the Internet offers both money and an escape from her earthly life. In cyberspace anything is possible, and that is what Codi loves most.
While online, she meets a charming and handsome man named Quinn Hamilton. Sparks fly and the two begin a torrid affair with unpredictable consequences. But their virtual lives collide with reality when their spouses discover their illicit relationship



This is a story of Codi & Quinn – Both people married but are both unhappy with their spouses. In General both are lives are less than ideal, so starts the plot (on both parts) to reinvent themselves on the internet. They managed to meet one another on an online porn website that Codi’s friend Katrina runs, with the help of Quinn’s cousin Calvin. The two decide to meet based on their online identities and a love affair based on nothing but lies begins. The affair only goes on for a few weeks, when Quinn makes a surprise visit to see Codi and things go terribly wrong. Codi and Quinn quickly learn that everything done in the dark always comes to the light!

I personally love to read books with lots of twists and turns and plenty of sex. I kept reading this book hoping that it would get better, because it had real potential. However, when the plot is combined with an unemployed girl who took up displaying herself on a web cam as a get rich quick scheme and a sickly car salesman who hates his whole life, fall in love based on lies over the internet, I find myself disappointed.
