Book Description:

Supermodel Katie Wolfer takes a call from her stepfather as she steps off the Dior runway in Paris: her mother has died. As she struggles to move forward as an orphan, two men loom large for Katie—Gavin Poole, a hot, emerging fashion designer with an inability to commit, and her charismatic, wealthy French stepfather, Daniel de Goncourt. Katie becomes entangled with both of them, exploring her darkest sexual desires amidst a lavish, decadent lifestyle.

This full-length novel will sweep you up in a world of beauty and power. Katie is smart, but also impulsive and flawed. As one of the most beautiful women in the world, she is always in the cross hairs, seducing or being seduced by both men and women. Deeply erotic, thoughtful, and thrilling, this novel is sure to arouse and intrigue you.

My View:

OOOO-Yes, Yes, Yes! 

Wow! Just Wow! I really don’t know where to begin this review. I finished reading this book literally 30 seconds ago & I’m just floored by the ending. It was not at all what I expected!

Let me begin by saying that this book wasn’t my usual cup of tea (or coffee in my case). However, I did find it quite entertaining.  A few other descriptive words come to mind as well: raw, gritty, sensual, seductive and erotic. Yes, deeply erotic.

Although this wasn’t my usual type of book, the storyline intrigued me and compelled me to return for more. Reading almost like a conversation or perhaps a journal, we experience a few weeks in Katie’s life from her point of view. She presents us with some fascinating insight not only into her life as a supermodel but also the lifestyle of the disturbingly rich and famous. It certainly held my interest, hence the reason behind the OOOO-Yes, Yes, Yes! rating.

I liked the main character, Katie but in a motherly sort of way, not an ‘I want to be your friend’ way. Sometimes Katie appeared quite shallow but she had some admirable qualities as well. She was relatively intelligent and deeply thoughtful, although not always making wise choices. I attribute her unwise choices to being too caught up in the game. Additionally, never really having proper parental role models surely contributed to her making those unwise choices. I actually felt a bit sorry for her and wanted to take her under my wing. Imagine feeling sorry for someone so young, sexy, beautiful, and filthy rich. We all think we want that lifestyle but in reality it’s not all it’s cracked up to be!

When agreeing to review this book, I didn’t realize what I was getting into. The two locales where it takes place are local to me and the synopsis looked interesting. Consequently, be forewarned. If you decide to venture forth, this was erotica purely for the sake of erotica. There was no romance or beautiful love story with a happily ever after. However, there was plenty of steamy sex. And not just the m/f kind but m/f/m & f/f too. For me personally, it was a bit too much. But others enjoy that sort of thing. I’m not being judgmental & mean no offense; it’s just not for me. I prefer my hot & steamy with a side dish of romance. But by all means, if it peaks your curiosity, then go forth and enjoy! I doubt you’ll be disappointed by this explicit, naughty, drug-fueled, fashionista-filled ride. Just make sure you’re over the age of 18! (Or rather 30. You’ll think much more logically over the age of 30. I’m not sure I’d want my daughter to read this book in two years when she turns 18, not that I'd have any say over that by that time.)

Okay, so there you have it. And yes, I’m still reeling over the ending. Of course, I don’t want to give anything away so I won’t. If this type of read intrigues you then I say go for it. I will certainly be reading the next book because I must know what happens. So that says something, right?
