Rachel, a married mother of two with a successful job as a PR executive, never thought she’d be the sort of woman who’d have an affair – let alone with her boss.
When she started working for him five years ago she didn’t even like him. He was arrogant, vain and didn’t listen. He wasn’t even good looking; according to a photo that she once showed me, he was a small, overweight, balding man in a suit.
Her marriage was then perfectly happy. And yet, 18 months on, she was in the grip of a wild affair and was risking her marriage, her job and even her sanity.
