It is not one everybody will be able to read, but for those of you that can appreciate novels about flawed human beings, it is definitely worth the read. The one thing I can guarantee you above all else is that this book will make you FEEL! From the moment I began reading this story, I was hooked! The author’s writing style is undeniably addictive and captivating. The first chapter will have you practically salivating for the next. Devouring chapter after chapter with little regard for my basic human needs, I barely slept at all the night I read this, but the exhaustion the next day was WORTH IT! So often in books, the main characters stop themselves before they do something they can’t take back, or whatever mistake they do make is one that can be forgiven with a decent amount of intense groveling. In this story, the characters go beyond the point of no return. What they do is unforgivable in the eyes of most people, but that is actually what made me LOVE IT! I like stories that make me think, make me feel, and show sides of human beings that are real, imperfect, and sometimes downright ugly. So many things in this world are not black and white, and I am endlessly fascinated by all of the shades of gray. I love questions that have no right answers. Things that make most people uncomfortable, I find interesting. It doesn’t mean I agree with everything that happens in this book, but I think it is something that happens every day. It isn’t represented in the romance genre as much in this way, because most people find it despicable. Reading this will have you pondering all kinds of things before the book concludes, and that is what I adore most about it. Can you truly love two people at once? After you rip apart someone’s life due to a decision you make even if you regret it, should you be allowed to have happiness yourself? If someone does something that is entirely wrong, selfish, and unforgivable, does that make them horrible people that don’t deserve happy endings? Everyone makes mistakes, but do those of us that make the biggest ones in a moment of weakness or even passion deserve heartache and misery forever after? The Fantasy Effect is an incredible read that you won’t be able to pry out of your hands. When you finally finish it, you will be thinking about it for days to come. The fact that this is the author’s debut novel is amazing to me! She writes like someone that has been doing it for years. The pacing is perfect, the writing style is engaging, and the sex is hot af. Paige, I will be picking up whatever it is you choose to write in the future. This book is one of the most interesting I have read all year. If this is your first attempt at writing a novel, I can’t wait to see what’s to come! I recommend this to romance fans that like stories that make you experience an overabundance of emotions, keeps you on the edge of your seat, and are impossible to put down once you start reading them. Keep in mind, it will probably make you angry at the characters, and there is cheating involved. I just want to warn you about that ahead of time, so you don’t hate me later, but if the subject matter doesn’t put you off, one-click this one asap and enjoy! I certainly did!

Before anything else, just fucking please give me this moment to rant because up until now I cannot take this book out of my system. Dearest Paige, "FUCK YOU ! SIDEWAYS!!! HARD! TAKE THAT!!!" Oh Woman, take that because you just gave me a book hangover I never thought would happen. And it's your first full-length novel? Are you fucking kidding me? K, bye., Annemarli,xo I wont definitely ask an apology for what I have written above because trust me, it's really more of a compliment than an insult. Because you know why?The Fantasy Effect by Paige Fieldsted took me by surprise. I was in awe by this author's writing style and to be honest she more than engaged me with this book. The blurb caught my interest, there's no doubt with that. It's my kind of trope and honestly it screams "READ ME". And you know what's more? It evoked plenty of emotions in me, my sanity is in trouble. Gahd! This book is perfectly/.imperfectly crazily good I was cursing Paige the whole time and even ranting and cursing some more to my blog sister.*And I'm drained! Ugh! I really do not know how to put my emotions into writing this review without spoiling you because honestly, that's the least I will do. I am glad I could post this and will be even happier if you experienced it and read blind like me. Because hell, my experience? I read this book like a lunatic. I feel like I was on crack so high with the story because as I said it really was engaging. First few pages and I was hooked. Man! Paige could knock it off just a few chapters in. With a sexual tension so thick you can't cut it with a knife and a hot scene you needed more than a cold shower, I was dead! I was hot and bothered reading it, I'm a perv I admit but holee-shit Paige' sex scenes is scorching to the nth level! Then the characters... first and foremost, I will totally be honest. Quinn and Carson, I don't have any problem with them. In fact I have a strong connection to them both. When they were introduced, I was so elated. I got so excited I can't explain. I love them. I love the complications. But then, Chloe, now she's a different story. I do not know if I will love or hate the heroine! She annoyed me at some point that eventually leads me to wanting to strangle her and throat-punch her at the same time. She's sick as fuck but because she's just being real, I understand and accepted her good and ugly sides. So where did it leave me? Off to loving her and reading some more! I am a glutton for punishment and her character and actions fueled me to keep on turning the pages looking for answers, anxious what will happen next and at the same time so bothered because...HOT! But you know what else is the reason why even in her ugliest, baddest decision, I am rooting for her? More than anybody else, I guess she needed to really find her true self. Overall I could say the book is great. I admit it's not the off the charts book I have ever read with this kind of trope. It's quite simple with complicated issues yet you can easily get in and enjoy. In fact it's even exact-ish same thing, "can you love two person at the same time", the issues that comes with it, but then this book has more.I admit I cried fat ugly tears because it's really heart breaking and to be honest it struck right through me. I hated the idea of cheating yet I love the angst it brings and it excites me. However though with this book, it was a roller coaster ride. It was different yet still tested my patience and sanity. Gahd! reading this had me nuts, cursing and yelling. That ending, ahhh.. I do not know what to say. This is the reason why I hated yet loved this book so much. I needed more! I was left hanging without a cliffy. I don't want it to end because I want more answers. But then, that's the beauty of books with an ending like this, It will leave an impression that will linger for much a very long time. It will be ingrained in your heart and mind. You will keep thinking and obsessing with it. True, it will! Because right fucking now? I am bewildered. This book... their story is in my system. I can't take it and I meant of savoring it and reliving the moment. To Paige, thank you for sharing this story with us. I am glad you reached us out and I am happier even that I read it. You made me crazy woman! You even break my heart but know that you got a fan in me. Kudos to you! I salute you for tackling a complicated issue! Your writing style is superb. I love it!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. What a ride! I never thought I would like a book about cheating, but I actually really liked this one. The writing was great, and even though what Chloe and Carson did was horrible, they are only human. What I loved about this book was that the characters made mistakes and paid the consequences. Cheating is wrong, and this book didn't glamorized it or tried to justify it. Overall a great read and debut by this author. What a ride!

    I was contacted through Indie's Ink to receive an ARC of this book, and I am now giving my voluntary, unbiased review. Let me start by saying that this is truly the toughest review I've had to write...I can't even imagine how hard it was/is for the author who not only wrote and published this story, but also stuck to this even though it is her debut novel! That takes guts, and I applaud her for staying true to what she felt needed to be written! Now, for the hard part. I'm struggling with how much I was contacted through Indie's Ink to receive an ARC of this book, and I am now giving my voluntary, unbiased review. Let me start by saying that this is truly the toughest review I've had to write...I can't even imagine how hard it was/is for the author who not only wrote and published this story, but also stuck to this even though it is her debut novel! That takes guts, and I applaud her for staying true to what she felt needed to be written! Now, for the hard part. I'm struggling with how much I really wanna say and how to say it. Yes, this is a book that contains cheating. No, I do not condone cheating and never will. Fact, I usually do not like books involving cheaters at all. BUT...with all of that said, I still read the book and I now have a love/dislike feeling about it. While I do not like everything that happened and how it all happened, I think I truly get what the author's goal was, and I can appreciate that. We all love to read books that are mostly completely unrealistic, but in a way that we all love and can enjoy and fantasize about. And we always love our HEAs for sure. This book, however, wasn't written to be a fairytale or some far fetched love story that we can't relate to personally in our own lives whatsoever. This was written to show the real, raw, human side of life. The good and bad, pretty and ugly, successes and failures. This is about something that happens all too often in marriages, yet it's ugly and hard to deal with, so no one wants to really touch the subject. But not all books have to be the fairytale romance story. This one changes it up and gives us real life problems, emotions, struggles, decisions, pain, and what the result of these things can lead to. Don't get me wrong...there was a lot of sexual chemistry involved as well, and I loved it. I'm torn about my individual feelings for each main character, but overall, I found a way to love and empathize with each one so I would call that a win. Besides, isn't the point of reading to connect to something and feel what the author wants us to feel? To put us in another world, no matter what that world may be, and make us experience all of the emotions every word evokes? To make us think outside the box and see things from a different perspective? I believe it is the point, whether it be a good or bad world, and this book done just that. I'm glad I didn't let my bias opinion of the overall subject stop me from reading this wonderful and sexy, but also tear jerking and heart wrenching book. Thank you, Paige Fieldsted, for writing this against all the odds stacked against you! I will definitely be reading more of your work in the near future!

The perfect woman. Everything about the lives of Quinn and Chloe should have sealed the deal that they would be together forever. One night of fantasy play changed everything. Chloe began seeing Carson, Quinn's best friend, in a even greater light, and couldn't get him out of her mind. This book broke my heart. Poor decisions and betrayal were present throughout. This is to be expected in a novel of this nature. I guess what I didn't expect was for an author's debut novel on this subject matter to be written in such a way that I couldn't turn away from the train wreck before me. Author Paige Fieldsted did not pull any punches when writing this novel. She did not make the affair look completely glamorous, but also made sure to include the passion and fire that drove that ship. I love that we experienced Chloe's relationships with other important people in her life. Good sounding boards. Voices of wisdom. I believe the impact of these secondary characters was some of the strongest I've read in literature of this trope. I was conflicted throughout most of the story because, in general, Chloe was a great lady. But, she had it all and risked that. It was infuriating. In spite of that, the desire was still there for her to have an HEA. I was pleased with how her story ended. The Fantasy Effect was a tempt of fate and an excellent debut novel.

    First, I have to say that this is not a romance book (which I thought it was, going in). This book is, however, an insightful examination of a marriage, of human nature, and of easy mistakes and hard decisions. Lots of good things about this book. The story is well crafted and the dialogue flows naturally. There is a great balance of conversation and narrative. The characters are multi-dimensional and, as much as I frequently yelled at them, I felt for them.

Without giving too much away, certain characters indulge in an almost unforgivable practice. It's more than just a mistake; it's a choice and it's difficult to watch/read. It's a credit to Fieldsted that she managed to find a satisfying ending when there was no way for a HEA. I look forward to future work from her that doesn't have such a heavy storyline. I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    This was a hard book. It's the story of Forbidden Fruit, acting on impulses and about following your inner fantasies. Its hard to read about cheating and trying to stay objective, especially when everyone seems happy in the marriage. I'm glad though that there was some HEA, and after reading the acknowledgements, I can understand a little more. I thought the scenes were nice and hot in those taboo and forbidden areas. I wanted to like the heroine, but her actions made me dislike her. I also thou This was a hard book. It's the story of Forbidden Fruit, acting on impulses and about following your inner fantasies.

I hope that you give Quinn his second chance at love, he deserves it for the ringer he went through.

Quinn is the ultimate guy. Devoted, sexy and doting. By all accounts, everything in the marriage was great..... except that little something that you can't explain. Chloe gets that from Carson and all of a sudden things are out of control and she can't deny him. Chloe is a flawed character by most standards but I really felt for her. I didn't envy her position but I could understand it. Life and relationships are messy sometimes. You don't always get the fairy tale happy ending. There was so much chemistry in this book, I needed a fan nearby! It was definitely hot. :)

They should stay tucked safely away in the corners of your imagination, where they are bright and shiny illusions of what could be.” Everything was perfect. My marriage was amazing, Quinn was amazing, our sex life was amazing. I had the job of my dreams and a relationship most people only dream about. I had it all and didn’t even realize it. Then there was Carson with his blonde hair and blue eyes, and a cocky smile I couldn’t get out of my head. He was the star of all my dirtiest fantasies, a forbidden temptation I couldn’t have. Or could I? I thought I had it all figured out. I thought I could have my cake and eat it too. I was wrong and now everything is falling apart. I brought my fantasy to life and unveiled a secret I wasn’t prepared for. Now my reality is crashing down around me and I don’t know how to stop it. I had it all but wanted more; now I might be left with nothing. “Is it possible to love two men at once? It had been a week since I’d let myself admit that I loved Carson. The two sides of my heart felt like they were in a wrestling match. I still loved Quinn, but it wasn’t with my whole heart anymore. Without even realizing it, I had let Carson in. I had let him steal a piece of my heart.” Listening to: “I Can’t Stay Away” by The Veronicas Fans of M. Mabie’s Bait and E.K. Blair’s Author Anonymous should absolutely check this out. I’m having a very hard time articulating my feelings about this story. I would like to start off by saying that it was incredibly captivating. It sucks you in and keeps you hooked until the very end. Paige delves into what happens when you get caught between fantasy and reality, and as intoxicating as it might feel at the time, has very real consequences coming down…but, there were some things in the story that I had a really hard time with, which is the reason for the 3.5 star rating. The story begins when Chloe’s light flirting with her husband Quinn’s best friend Carson escalates into a drunken, but calculated, threesome. She hopes that will get him out of her system, but it backfires when he begins actively pursuing her under the nose of her loving, trusting husband. Though she loves Quinn, she can’t seem to stay away from Carson, even when she tells herself she needs to end things. Fieldsted takes you on an angst ridden journey of the consequences of turning your darkest fantasy into a reality. The angst!!! Lord almighty, the angst. I’m drinking a bottle of wine while I relive the free fall of emotions Paige put us through. The reason why I’m having a hard time rating this story is that I began to severely dislike Chloe about thirty percent of the way in. I’m not big into stories that involve cheating, and this entire story is about infidelity. I understand that real life doesn’t always have black and white and as flawed humans, we make mistakes. My problem with Chloe was that she continued down her road of deceit for months, without any real remorse for her actions. “For a brief moment, I considered getting out of the shower and confessing to Quinn right then, coming clean about everything, but even that was selfish. I shouldn’t tell him just so I could stop feeling guilty. If I was going to confess, it should be because I was ready to face the consequences of my actions. But I wasn’t ready for that. I wasn’t ready to stop. I wasn’t done with Carson yet.” She would have moments of, “I can’t do this anymore,” or realizations of how much she loved Quinn, but the second Carson contacted her in any way, she’d throw all of those decisions out the window. No one can pick the moment they meet their soulmate, and I can’t fault either Chloe or Carson for that, but I can fault her for the length of time she continued on behind Quinn’s back. With that being said, Paige’s writing ensnared my attention and I finished this book within a day. I can’t wait for your next book, Paige!

    An uncomfortable but brilliant book In a perfect world it would be easy to condemn this book however the world isn't perfect and you can love someone but not be in love with them. This book brought back a million memories and feelings for me. The author captured the excitement, guilt and difficult position that I found myself in. I really enjoyed it but dreaded turning every page. The characters were believable and the story well written with just enough 'spice' without being gratuitous.

    "The Fantasy Effect" is not just about a fantasy, but the very real consequences of fulfilling said fantasy. If you’re thinking of spicing up your marriage, remember to be careful what you wish for. I read the book quickly, I simply had to know what was going to happen if or when Chloe’s life imploded. I held my breath at times. The steamy parts did not disappoint! A great first outing from a new author!

    I was totally engrossed in this book right off the bat. (Although, given how it starts, I'm sure I'm not the only one saying that.) Great characters. Great conflict. Half the time I wanted to argue with the main character, but I couldn't because I didn't even know what I wanted her to be doing. So complex. I loved it!

By the end of this book I felt emotionally drained, but only in the best way! These characters... I fell in love with then so fast.

You know the book and writing is amazing if you are having these crazy emotions and I totally was!! In the end, I was actually surprised how the story ended. There was so many different ways it could have went, but I was actually happy with the ending! I seriously loved it and I cannot wait to read more from Paige! 5 stars!!

    I'm not usually an erotica reader, but this didn't read totally like that. First of all, the writing was actually good. Second of all, the characters were pretty fleshed out, and you could really feel the tension between them all. As has been noted before, I still want more Don't worry, though, this book is HOT. I won't blow it for you, but seriously, less than 5% in, and you are in the middle of a SCORCHING scene. Be ready to fan yourself off, for real!

This book took me on an emotional roller coaster ride. Chloe is a strong women who works for Nike in Portland. She's married to Quinn, the love of her life. However she fantasizes about having a threesome with her husband and his best friend Carson.

Little does Chloe know that one night of amazing sex will send her down the rabbit hole and lead her to discovering new things about herself, she might not have learned otherwise. This book has twists and urn, and is a ho button topic that might cause some people to dislike. However the emotional struggle is so real and the character development is so real. I really loved this story. It doesn't end with a cliff hanger, but end appropriately and gives the reader some answers but leaves other unanswered. Definitely an amazing first book, that will make you want more form Paige Fieldsted! 4.5 Stars!

    Okay read...spoilers alert The plot was the usual cheating spouse cliche with the best friend. Writing was pretty good and I felt the emotions of the characters instead of being told. Maybe that's why I didn't like the best friend Dani. It felt like she was verbally abusive to h and maybe even liked her husband. They both loved football. Nothing happened between them though. The heroine was annoying. She was indecisive, immature, and weak. I enjoyed the first half of the book but got tired of the Okay read...spoilers alert The plot was the usual cheating spouse cliche with the best friend.

It felt like she was verbally abusive to h and maybe even liked her husband. They both loved football. Nothing happened between them though. The heroine was annoying. She was indecisive, immature, and weak. I enjoyed the first half of the book but got tired of the h and her best friend. The thing is she cheated on her husband cuz she had strong feelings for his best friend. She should just accepted her feelings. I think it was the husband's fault too. She may have initiated the threesome idea but the husband became obsess afterwards that he got mad when she didn't want to do it again. She may have made her fantasy a reality but the husband allowed it. i think he was in the wrong too. Both contributed to their marriage's ending. Two stars since I didn't care for the female characters. And, the ending was rushed. All I got was a one page HE A. I'm glad she didn't end up with the husband. I would have like to have seen the h character developed and evolved in accepting her mistake and showing her relationship with Carson become something more. Cold Turkey ending for sure. I don't think a book about Quinn HEA is needed because that would just be another cliche. Enjoyed this author's writing though. I would still recommend this book for the hot n steamy sex as long as you're okay with the cheating aspects and the abrupt ending.

    I may have liked this more if I could figure out why any one of these men wanted Chloe. Maybe if it had given more background, so I can see how wonderful she must have been at some point, I would have saw the appeal. As it is all I see is a selfish woman who didn't care about anything but her own desires. Not much more to say about the men either. Quinn kept pushing for something his wife seemingly didn't want any more, if he hadn't would that have changed the outcome? Who knows. Carson, was jus I may have liked this more if I could figure out why any one of these men wanted Chloe.

Quinn kept pushing for something his wife seemingly didn't want any more, if he hadn't would that have changed the outcome? Who knows. Carson, was just as bad as Chloe, neither of them cared much about the consequences of their actions. The only saving grace for him is that he admitted to having feelings for her for years, and I kinda felt sorry for him because she treated him like crap most of the time after things got started. Again, I ask, Why did the want her? All that and your probably wondering why I gave it 3 stars. Well, the writing isn't bad. I will definitely be reading more from this author. If the sex scenes didn't seem to be the same over and over again just with a different man I may have even rated it higher.

    Wow! I can't believe this was this authors debut novel! Had I not known that I'd never have guessed, it was truly that well written! This book was just great, it had everything I look for in a book plus what I felt to be a way more honest and realistic Hero and Heroine complete with flaws and everything (I know, GASP right? Everything should be perfect in romance novels right?) The honesty and emotion was truly refreshing, life isn't always perfect, people screw up, and not everyone is great at Wow!

I liked how the characters owned up to their faults in an almost unapologetic way. This book was just EVERYTHING, I couldn't put it down and I hope its just a great beginning to a long and happy career for this new author!

    I liked it and I didn't. If you can't handle an amazing husband that gets shit on by his bf and wife than this book isn't for you. I rated it 3 stars because it wasn't bad it just wasn't my kind of book and I love all subjects.. Except this one.. I guess, I don't care what "connection" you have with someone if your so in love with your husband of 8 years, you ain't gonna sanely have an affair, it's just not believable. I read to 45% than I skipped to 80%. I couldn't deal with those 2 assholes. I liked it and I didn't.

    Steamy but Sad This was a very steaming hot read but it was sad at the same time. I felt a little sorry for main character, Chloe, for ruining her marriage to Quinn even though she deserved it. I was hoping the ending would be different and it felt rushed. But overall it was a great read.

    This book is a roller-coaster-ride of a story and a guilty-pleasure-read all wrapped into one! It is unlike any book I’ve ever read before. The beautiful cover grabbed my attention but I found out immediately that the story was not at all what I expected. At the end of the first chapter, my thoughts were: “did that really just happen?, “what am I reading?”, and then “wait, was it a dream of one of her fantasies?” I wasn’t sure about continuing, truthfully, but curiosity won out, so I picked it b This book is a roller-coaster-ride of a story and a guilty-pleasure-read all wrapped into one!

At the end of the first chapter, my thoughts were: “did that really just happen?, “what am I reading?”, and then “wait, was it a dream of one of her fantasies?” I wasn’t sure about continuing, truthfully, but curiosity won out, so I picked it back up the next day. From that point, I was strapped in for the ride and there was no turning back. I became completely engrossed, often screamed “NO!! Don’t!!” in my head, and dreaded the heartbreak I could tell was coming. The dialogue, the narrative and the HOT scenes of passion & intimacy are so well-written that the words fly off the page. This is an incredible debut!

    I felt like I was on a rollercoaster getting whiplash. I hated the subject of the book but I loved Paige's writing and way of story telling. but I hate books on cheating! I feel so incredibly bad for Quinn!!! I will read more from Paige but I hope there are no more books on cheating. I felt like I was on a rollercoaster getting whiplash.

    I obviously have to give my own book five-stars, but really, sometimes I go back and read scenes and can't believe I wrote this! I obviously have to give my own book five-stars, but really, sometimes I go back and read scenes and can't believe I wrote this!
