Spend a night of sexual adventure with this gritty, debut thriller.In a toxic world of lust, lies, and elegant hotels, London’s high-class escorts cater to the carnal appetites of powerful men. It’s a game Stella knows how to play, one that allows her to escape the nightmares of her past. The rules are simple: always leave your client satisfied, don’t get involved, and never disclose your real name. But when a fellow call girl is murdered, the game changes completely. And there’s only one rule—survival.Once a respected professional, Stella knows how easily men can get away with murder—especially when the victim is a prostitute. Determined to get to the truth, she finds herself sucked into a deadly conflict with some of the world’s most powerful men. But while they may consider themselves above the law, there’s one secret every escort knows: no man is truly untouchable.
I love thrillers that have suspense, raw emotion, hero’s and victims, sex and drugs, bad boys and powerful men and this book had it all. I was glued to this book looking for the next clue as it was written with sparingly clever suspense throughout. It was like the author was holding a carrot by a string and slowly pulled it away once I got a little information only to be keep stringing me along. It was so worth the anticipation as this book was exciting and emotional.
Grace aka Stella has a past that haunts her everyday. She made some drastic changes within the past five years; she changed her name, volunteers at a rape crisis center and became an upscale call girl in London. She earns her living by providing powerful men their ultimate sexual fantasies for an hour or two. Stella is a hero with heart and a victim of her occupation; however, she’s also a woman trying to live life away from her demons and the evil men she comes across. As things progressed throughout the book, she struggled in making the right decisions, afraid that any wrong decision could be the end of her life.
Once again, this was a very exciting thriller. I could see this book turn into a great series. I’d like to see what happens to fellow call girl Janine next…
