by Brett Scott Ermilio
Nicki Connolly’s life has flat lined. Nicki’s dull marriage to her husband, Aiden, flounders further and further into a hopeless abyss. Despite the setbacks, Nicki attempts to balance being a working mother, a successful attorney and relishes the distractions of a budding romance with a man named Taylor Diamond. Nicki has been assigned lead attorney in a massive class-action lawsuit that will make or break her career at the firm of Rapture and Myers. That is when the handsome Taylor Diamond appears in her life.
Taylor Diamond has been named second chair for the big case. Taylor has it all: looks, brains, a strong family name and many connections. But dark forces loom and converge upon Nicki and Taylor. As obstacles grow, the two form a fiery bond just as the case and her life reach an epic breaking point.
The Connolly Affair delivers a suspense-filled thrill ride that will have readers on the edge of their seats.
Bob, Charles, and James are all hovering over someone—something. As they applaud and step back, I see with my own eyes their new toy. Taylor Diamond. Taylor is an incredibly aggressive young attorney with a long list of clients and an even longer list of success. He looks like he just fell out of a Yale fraternity magazine; the ideal stunner of a man. His face maintains the perfect jaw structure, his blue eyes and perfect wavy, black hair only further compliment his broad shoulders and, near perfect, six-foot physique. Oh, my God. He’s incredible. For a moment, I forget that I am a partner in my law firm and not a school girl, staring at the shockingly handsome, cool senior at Liberty High.

A Little Interview
Where are you from?
Originally, Brooklyn, NY. My family moved to Los Angeles when I was 2. My uncle is Neil Bogart (The Disco King). He started a crazy company called Casablanca Records. He brought my father out to LA for work and I grew up there.
What is the first book you remember reading?
Shel Silverstein’s Where The Sidewalk Ends.
When did you realize you wanted to became a writer?
When I was nearing the end of high school, I wrote my first full length screenplay. It was at that moment I knew it was for me. Despite being a baseball prospect at the time, I knew in my heart writing was the way to go.
Do you have a special place you like to write?
Not really. I can write anywhere. One place doesn’t inspire me more than another. More than anything, it’s the music I listen to that I draw inspiration from.
What else do you enjoy doing, when you're not writing?
I am a dad. I have 4 amazing kids. So they can take up quite a bit of time. I love playing sports (although age is getting me now). I exercise and stay in shape. 1,000 push-ups a week and some cardio and abs. Bike riding. I would like to read more. I am so driven by my own work I honestly wish I would stop to appreciate others a bit more.
What are you working on next?
I just completed the second book for The Connolly Affair series. I am currently writing a very cool thriller set in 1920 surrounding the Barnegat Lighthouse. It is very Alfred Hitchcock and Stephen King.
