At CrimeReads she tagged six top novels about illicit affairs, including:
The Arrangement by Robyn Harding

A sugar daddy scenario that goes very wrong. We have Natalie, a student at art college, who needs to pay the bills, and Gabe who is thirty years her senior, is married, but wants a younger companion from time to time. Seems like a simple relationship of transaction and convenience but as always, feelings get involved and all hell breaks loose. The Arrangement is the gripping story of a young woman who gets caught up by the allure and power of a wealthy older man who is trying to have it all and does not care who gets hurt in the pursuit of it.

The Arrangement is among Pip Drysdale's seven revenge thrillers featuring women who have officially had enough and Kathleen Barber's eight novels that will make you never want to look at your phone again.
