Newlywed Wynne Marie Jackson has it all—delicious husband, beautiful New England home, high-paying job in her field. So why does her husband Jake discover her in tears? Two letters—AJ.

When Wynne Marie left Atlanta, she also left behind her well-known spa, Silk, and her co-owner AJ Albright. Together, she and AJ built their spa into a retreat sought by the stars. However, their relationship went deeper than the Tao massage they specialized in, and while she loves her husband Jake, she misses AJ’s passion.

After a fearful confession, Jake is more understanding—and turned on—than Wynne Marie ever imagined. Can adding AJ to their lives be the realization of her dreams or the end of her marriage?

Em Petrova is a new to me author and I will be on the look out for more from her.  Silk is a short read, no cliffhangers or sudden drops.  The concept of the story –wife gets to have her cake and eat it, too–it didn’t bother me, but it seemed like that was something that should have been addressed before the wedding. As most of us knows, communication works wonders.

All three characters, AJ, Jake and Wynne had emotions all over the place that they will need to get in touch with if only to keep from going crazy. You can tell from onset that Wynne still had feelings for her ex; AJ was her partner/lover for awhile. I can see the difference in both men, where Jake is more grounded and AJ is off the charts. In AJ’s defense…maybe Wynne and Jake are what he will need to settle his feelings. Wynne and AJ showed submissive tendencies a bit and Jake pushed out his Dom side a little. All the emotions and feelings flying around, and at the end will come to the middle. Jake I think showed a lot of understanding even in the real world not sure how many husbands would have been so accepting. We can’t give Jake a medal for wonderful husband though, he had some of his own fantasies running through his head.

All in all even with the lack of communication at the beginning it rounded out to be a interesting and believable story. The passion.. imagine more than one sets of hands on you? Passion…. imagine feeding your voyeur side and watching, or being watched… Silk was a good introduction to Ms. Peterova’s work.
