I cheated on my boyfriend. Am I sorry? Not one bit. Every moment I spent with the beautiful Navy seaman I call Adonis was worth it. Am I riddled with guilt? Without a doubt. I have to say, though, it was the kick in the pants I needed to change my life. But now I have to go home and face the fire, and it's going to be a hot one.
In Blurred Lines: The Entire Collection, Tara Lynne's life took a tumble into a passion so searing, so scandalous, she never wanted to leave. But, for the beautiful, young, college art student, coming home from her unexpected, blurred lines, erotic tryst with Adonis, means coming home to stark reality.
