    Things Are Not Always As They Appear!

    This is the story of Codi & Quinn - two people married but to spouses that they are not very happy with. Their lives in general aren't ideal so each one decides to reinvent themselves on the internet only to find that everything done in the dark always comes to the light!

    Pat Tucker and Earl Sewell’s story is very engaging. The lies, deceit and fantasies the characters create give way to a very good read. I laughed, talked to the characters, and experienced so many emotions when reading this novel. The authors did a very good job describing in great detail what happens when we try to do things undercover and how our lies will come back to haunt us and in the end things are never as bad as they seem.

    I really like “A Social Affair” and would recommend it. The scenes described, I could picture. All that happened, I could in reality see happening. This story just goes to show in life we really can't escape ourselves and even when we try and create a fantasy the truth always comes out in the wash.

    A very good read!

    Do you believe everything you read online? Is Facebook your news

    Do you believe everything you read online? Is Facebook your newsroom? In A Social Affair, we find the tale of what happens when people misrepresent themselves online. You know those inbox messages you get on FB (or send)...the ones where the guy is saying, "Oh...I think you're beautiful. Let's get to know one another..." You Google him. Can't find anything...probably because HE'S NOT REAL! Okay. So here, both Codi and Quinn are in unhappy marriages. They have no escapes except the internet. Well, what happens when they meet and live out the lives they've created online? You've wanted to be someone know it! Quinn and Codi get that chance.

    You'll have to read to find out what happens when their spouses find out!

    "A Social A Affair" By Pat Tucker and Earl Sewell was quite some read that truly held my attention till the end. Being bored with her life as a wife and mother and under the influence of her best friend decides to get involved in the porn industry and reinvent herself by coming someone she isn't as Candi. Along with this, we find Quinn who feels trapped in his marriage set up a Facebook, and twitter account to 'reinvent himself as a professor who seeks companionship. Soon, both Candi and Quinn get hooked up and are now living a double life. Now, this is where I say you must pick up the read because it will get very complicated and you will only have to read to find out where this author will take the read. It will be a very interesting read. You will be definitely left thinking 'One can never be certain whether the face behind the social media such as Facebook and twitter is someone that they really are or just a make believe' leaving you to only be careful if this is what you are into. I thought "A Social Affair" was a well written and very believable read that had some drama, suspense and even some humorous sections. Would I recommend? YES!
