Be warned..there is probably spoilers about to happen.

But Lawd knows I have to get this out of the way first: I KNOW the author says that there is cheating in this book. I knew that going in and I know that books are fantasy.

Now let's get to what I really thought. AND ONCE AGAIN I MAY SPOIL ON THIS ONE...because stupid happens and stupid pisses me off.

This book starts off with lovely Jules having an affair with her married boss. But it's okay because she was drunk and doesn't really remembe

Gemma James, what have you done to me? Trashy Foreplay is the first book I have read from the author and will not be the last. Mouth dropping. Wow. I wanted a book based on cheating, and that is what I got. Remember, not everything is black & white; there is a whole grey area. This book is not for everyone, and that is okay.

Jules has been on and off from her boyfriend for years, events happened, and he left her for good. Jules is ashamed and doesn't want to deal with her family; she books the

Gemma James is a naughty girl who made me want her characters to do really naughty things they had no business doing. Don't judge. It's fiction! Cash and Jules have an insta-lust connection that leads to the most forbidden, sinful and agonizing slow burn EVER. Intense and provocative, there is so much heat, tension and angst I felt like I had been set on fire and then slowly ripped in half. I'm not convinced that everything is as it seems. I think there are a couple of major twists still to come ...more
I knew going in that this book was going to be a bit different than what I am used to. It deals with adultery (clearly stated in a warning in the blurb) and that’s not my cup of tea. However, I have enjoyed this author’s writing before and I always like trying something new and different and this one piqued my curiosity so I jumped in with eyes wide open. And I ended up really enjoying it.

I freaking ADORE everything Gemma James writes, and even though TRASHY FOREPLAY, book one in her Trashy Affair series was a huge departure from her darker fare, at its core is a rapturous love story that left me completely euphoric !!!

I’m not going to lie…..I went into this book just needing a good smutty book, little did I know this was going to be so much more. This was a KU and I seriously thought it would just be an easy smutty book (CLEARLY I did NOT read the synopsis) but this story was fueled by adultery. This will be my second book this month that has cheating and books with cheating are NOT really my thing.

My goodness...I was not expecting this book, AT ALL!! So much yum is packed into this tantalizing and tempting quick read!, I'm just going to say it: some people will probably be turned off right away from this book, because the author clearly states that this story involves cheating. Some people will consider this a fine line to cross when incorporating it into the subject matter. But the approach the author took with this controversial topic and expanding the reader's perception was

Absolute deliciousness. Steamy, sizzling and intense, just the way I like it. Can't wait for Book 2! ...more
The title was misleading. It wasn't trashy, and there wasn't much foreplay unless you consider flirting foreplay. The only thing that made this remotely trashy was that Cash was married. It didn't bother me because it was clear his marriage had been on the rocks for a while. It was one of those things where it seemed like it was over but he hadn't admitted it to himself yet.

It was good but lacked the intensity of Gemma James's dark romances. It was a quick read, and I didn't want to put it down

I don't even know what to say about this book. My feelings are so mixed up on it. I have been wanting to read Trashy Foreplay since I found out about it, and even though I've never read Gemma James I had really high hopes for it.While I was reading it, I couldn't stop. I read the entire book in one day because it is a definite page-turner. But then the events at the end + the cliffhanger dampened my feelings on it a bit.

Chemistry and anticipation were the key factors in why I couldn't t
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Trashy Foreplay by Gemma James is the First Book in the "Trashy Affair" series. This is the story of Jules and Cash.
Jules and Cash are attracted to each other after meeting on a air plane. Jules is dealing with a past mistake that she wants to make a fresh stat. Cash is in a bad marriage with a cheating wife.
Jules and Cash have so much that should keep them away from each other but their feelings won't be denied easily.
This book does end with a cliffhanger to set you up for the next book in t

This story gave me the hick-ups. I mean, that's what happens when you INHALE a book like I did Trashy Foreplay. It's one of those reads that when I realized how close to the end I was reaching, I started to feel sad that it was almost over. I couldn't fathom not having Cash and Jules to pant over. I started to worry about the pace of the story and how Ms. James was going to wrap it up. Then I discovered, much to my delight, that it's a part of a series...YAY US!!

I tried to be a good girl. I swear. But the blurb kept teasing me, it kept whispering in my ear all the filthy possibilities. I'm only human. I can't help that a small part of me needed to know just how this book plays out.

So here I am justifying my curiosity to people who could care less. I just want you to know, I didn't start out wanting to reading books with cheating. I even justify that too. Or I could if I cared enough...

The tension, chemistry, and overwhelming need in this book is off th

Oh my word, Gemma James…what did you write lady?

When I signed up for Trashy Foreplay, I did so with great trepidation. The last book I read from Gemma James was from the Condemned series; dark, twisty books that assuaged my palette for reading. I loved those books, and still they remain among one of my favourite series. I was wary about reading her New Adult work in case it disappointed. I knew it

To be honest with you, I have no idea what to rate this story. It was angsty and frustrating and had me hypnotized and I have no idea how I'm going to survive until January with that whopper of an ending!

Yes, there is cheating in this book as it warns, but you are going to hope for the two to still find a way to get together, even though it is crazy stressful and you will want to rip your hair out of your head in frustration and guilt. It's soo consuming that you will wish you could fix all of t

I finished this book in one sitting - Trashy Foreplay was hot, forbidden and the sexual tension could be felt in each word- Elizabeth @ White Hot Reads

This Story is a Cliffy.... Be Aware...

Jules breaks all the rules;
“Never flirt with temptation.” ~ When seated next to a man on a plane whom the chemistry is nothing like she has never felt; she breathes a sigh of relief when he walks away with only a kiss on the cheek.
“Never lust after what I can’t have.” ~ Lust is putting it lightly, but their b
4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars! Another Forbidden treat! This was so good. Forbidden because he was her married boss. This one was sexy and salacious. Cash was stuck in an unhappy marriage, more for convenience really. Here comes irresistible Jules fucking up his world, lol. So of course sparks flew and their was a lot of sexual tension all around. My favorite is their text messages, rife with sexual tension and innuendos. Cash and Jules didn’t jump into things right away, in fact nothing much happened until ...more

This book is amazing just simply amazing. I know that is has some triggers for some but cheating is a thing that happens in marriages and relationships and I don't feel like Cash cheated on his wife as she did it first to him. All Cash wanted was to be loved and have the perfect life and he thought he had that with his wife until he found out that she was cheating on him and broke his heart.

Cash stayed faithful to his wife till he met Jules on the plane and the chemistry between the two of them

Sweet. This was a fun quick read. Even though it took a couple days to finish, I blame that on my schedule. I liked the romance between Jules and Cash. CASH...drooling just thinking about him.
I wouldn’t say this book wa super climactic or that the story was intense. It was sweet. A girl, fresh out of a breakup, majorly due to her own fault meets the hottest, sexiest guy on the planet on her plane ride. Looking for a new job, Cash hires her and the sexy-flirting games begin! I love

This will be classed as one of my guilty pleasures and I loved every minute of it.
Jules has made a pretty big mistake and decides to move and start with a clean slate. Fate can be sick and twisted because on the plane to her new life she meets Cash and sparks fly. The connection between them is like a living breathing entity, there was a point on the plane I was holding my breath.
Cash is a man in turmoil not knowing which way to turn, his strong personality grabs you and doesn't let go. My hear

I wasn't too sure I was gonna love this one. But man I was surprised. I'm not always a fan of books that involve cheating. But you can't help but cheer for Cash and Jules to break the rules and fall in love. I didn't realize this was a series when I started it. And of course it left me with wanting more. So I can't wait for the next book to be released.
Thanks NetGalley for the arc in exchange for my honest review.

First in a new series this is the story of Jules who escapes one scandal only to fall straight into the arms of another disastrous situation in the shape of Cash….. their’s is a forbidden relationship in more than one sense and with so many obstacles to encounter the outcome is not assured…
