Beth Mason seemingly has it all. A successful bakery/café called Decadent Dreams, good friends, and a nice home in Stamford, New York.

After her previous boyfriend dumped her six months before for not spending enough time with him, Beth decided that she had been through enough and wanted more in a relationship. Throwing herself back into the dating scene, Beth decided to go onto an online dating website called, ‘A Foreign Affair.’

Enjoying the different types of men from all over the world that ‘A Foreign Affair’ catered to, Beth became struck by a handsome man from Belarus named Yuri who was the former manager of the famed Rhapsody night club. After realizing that they had a lot in common, the two struck up a close, intense relationship.

Yuri, who’s been depressed since his nightclub burned to the ground and watching his best friend’s parents both die from a terminal illness, decided to take Beth up on an invite and join her for a fun-filled weekend in New York City.

With both of them full of emotions, will the weekend be just what they needed or more than they bargained for?


I really enjoyed this story, and I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.

Beth is a bakery / cafe owner who's looking for more out of her relationships. Her ex boyfriend broke up with her six months ago, claiming she didn't spend enough time with him. After hearing from a customer that he was engaged, Beth decides to take a new approach to dating.

Beth tries a new dating website called "A Foreign Affair", she meets Yuri and they immediately hit it off. After corresponding by email, web cam, and phone calls for over six months, Beth takes a chance and ask Yuri to visit her in New York.

Yuri is hesitant to accept Beth's offer at first, but it doesn't take him long to agree, and they plan to meet up. The attraction is instant, and sizzling. They both realize that they are in love, and clueless about what each of them should do.

Yuri has obligations at home, that he can't just walk away from. His best friend and roommate Nicky is going through the heartbreaking tragedy of losing his mother to cancer, and Yuri's parents are home waiting for him as well. He doesn't have a job at the moment because the night club he was managing burnt down.

How can Beth and Yuri get past all the obstacles of their lives and be together?

This book had my attention from the moment I started reading it. The characters were well developed, and perfectly believable. I always love a strong heroine, and Beth is exactly that. She goes after what she wants no matter the cost, and that's respectable. Yuri is so hot, and exactly the right type for her personality. They didn't dodge around their feelings they came right out and expressed them.

The sex scenes in this novella were so hot I thought they would melt my kindle buttons off. They were very revealing without taking away from the story. The author did a very good job of creating a sizzling love story, that left you satisfied when you finished reading it. I would definitely like to read more about Beth, and Yuri. I am also intrigued with the secondary characters, I would love to find out how Nicky copes with all he's dealing with, and if he finds someone of his own.

I will definitely be keeping a eye out for Ms. Langston's future novels.
