About The Book

Am”lie is a sexy, beautiful thirty-year-old haute bourgeoisie wife of a distant husband. One evening at a service station on the outskirts of the Bois de Boulogne, she meets David and steps into an erotic and sensuous new life. Twenty years her senior, darkly handsome, and almost embarrassingly virile, he is a suave filmmaker, a confirmed bachelor, and the perfect match for the perfect affair–but one with a twist. Am”lie isn’t looking for love, but she’s hungry for pleasure. Written with cool-headed intensity and sexual heat, Crush is an unforgettable odyssey through the wilds of desire into the badlands of erotic obsession.
