Discretion is an Adult Contemporary Romance novel written by Ruby Foxx. While reading on her Kindle at the local cafe, Paige Belmont finds herself flirting with well-dressed cafe patron, Alex Turner, who is seated at the next table. The flirting becomes mutual and, before long, Alex and Paige retreat to an ice cream parlor, with Paige first advising that she is married. Unfazed, Alex seduces her with compliments and flattery, only to discover that Paige’s sex life is far from satisfactory. After Alex reveals to Paige that he is an author and that he would like to base a character in his next romance novel on her, she cannot help but feel like a star at an audition. When Paige returns home to James, her husband of eight years, she immediately finds herself embroiled in a web of lies as to why she is home late. Paige craves to become a mother, but due to James’ infertility problems, it is not on the cards that she conceives a child with her husband, especially since James no longer shares any sexual intimacy with her. Working in the fast-paced fashion world, Paige quickly realizes that the harder she works at the office, the more she is consumed with thoughts of Alex. Walking to her car one afternoon, she is accosted by two men with evil intentions. With Alex appearing from nowhere, he jumps to Paige’s rescue and they end up back at Alex’s lavish apartment, where the erotic inferno between them explodes.

Not only is Ruby Foxx a talented writer of romance, but she knows how to insert just the right amount of action and humor to make the book even more enticing. Discretion is about a woman in a stable marriage, but who feels unfulfilled sexually by a husband who would rather avoid their problems than engage them head on. Her chance encounter with a man who is infatuated by her brains and beauty, and who is not afraid to go after what he wants, is a delicious recipe indeed. Torn between her love and loyalty to her husband and her desire to become a mother and feel needed, Paige is a believably-written character with a very difficult decision ahead of her. I enjoyed the three different aspects in her world, with her demanding, high-paying career, her devotion to her husband and friend, James, and the passion she feels for Alex. I recommend this book to mature lovers of romance blended with adventure, humor, action and real-life, complex social issues.
